The next evolution of retro, Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2

By Levi . April 3, 2008 . 8:44am

Geometry Wars fans, get ready for more retro inspired insanity. The OFLC has rated Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2! Yes, it looks like a sequel is indeed coming. While the OFLC website lists it as "multiplatform", it's most likely coming to the PC and XBLA, at least in my opinion. Though how crazy would it […]

Personally, I can’t imagine playing Boom Boom Rocket with a dance mat because the notes don’t seem organized enough. But then again I’ve played Marvel versus Capcom 2 with a dance mat and […]

Hands on Geometry Wars Galaxies

By Spencer . July 27, 2007 . 12:49am

I’m far from the best Geometry Wars player out there. My skill level is mediocre at best, but I do play the Xbox 360 version from time to time. That is probably the reason why the control scheme in Geometry Wars Galaxies felt awkward when I picked up the remote and nunchuck. You move the […]

Weeks ago, I was lucky enough to try out a preliminary build of Project Gotham Racing 4 to test out a few of the new vehicles. The addition of motorcycles was a major highlight in PGR4 and you can do wheelies to earn kudos. I was told it is possible to maintain a wheelie throughout […]

Watch: Playing Boom Boom Rocket

By Spencer . February 23, 2007 . 8:06am

This video gives an idea of how Bizarre Creations’ next Xbox Live title plays. There is a timeline ¾ on top of the screen and players need to hit the correct colored button when the firework reaches the timeline. Time your button press right a firework explodes and the “bonus meter” charges up. Sure it […]
