Spoiler Friday: Bioshock

By Louise . August 31, 2007 . 3:40pm

Sadly, Irrational's (oops, I meant 2K Boston) latest FPS and contender for GOTY has to come to an end sometime. Players start off controlling an unnamed protagonist who somehow survived a plane crash.  A lone lighthouse nearby leads the way down to a strange submarine like contraption.  Boarding the submarine, players find themselves entering the […]

One of the scenes in the third chapter of Super Paper Mario has Princess Peach step into the world of a dating game.

Spoiler Friday: Hotel Dusk

By Louise . March 16, 2007 . 3:00pm

Hotel Dusk, a point and click adventure game heavy on dialog, kept me playing till the end thanks to its twisting and turning plot. Kyle Hyde, a retired detective comes to Hotel Dusk to pick up some things for his boss and discovers clues about his left-for-dead ex-partner who was suspected of coercing with some […]

Spoiler Friday: Wolfenstein 3D Bosses

By Louise . March 2, 2007 . 1:01pm

Thank god the ESRB wasn’t around when I was a kid. Well, even if they were, I don’t think my parents would have paid much attention to them.  I had the pleasure of playing Wolfenstein 3D trilogy when I was about 9 years old.  Being so young, I didn’t really understand the story.  Back then, […]

Spoiler Friday: Contact

By Louise . February 23, 2007 . 12:08pm

  A lot of Earthbound fans saw Contact on the NDS as the second coming.  Like those fans, I looked forward to the witty writing, quirky humor, and distinctive style.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t help feeling a bit of disappointment after beating the game.

Spoiler Friday: Indigo Prophecy

By Louise . February 16, 2007 . 12:35pm

Okay this isn’t so much as a spoiler as a general rant about the game.  Without going into spoilerland, the first half of the game was really good at building up suspense. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened. Then all of a sudden, it crapped out.  It’s like they switched writers halfway through […]

Spoiler Friday: Silent Hill 2

By Louise . February 9, 2007 . 1:33pm

I’d be lying if I said Silent Hill 2 didn’t scare the crap out of me. While the entire game was scary in the sense that I was always dreading something terrible to pop out (Hello there, Pyramid Head), it was the revelation at the end that ultimately scared me.  Without that plot twist about […]

Spoiler Friday: Ico

By Louise . February 2, 2007 . 2:51pm

Ico was one of the best under-appreciated games of the PS2.  Some may say it’s because of the lame US box-art, but mostly it’s because Ico is a little game made from a then unknown team and released with little to no fanfare.  It doesn’t boast a point-haired protagonist with big swords, it doesn’t have […]
