Game Review

Anyone who played and enjoyed the original Contra back in the '80s can attest to the satisfaction that the game brought. Despite its brutal difficulty, which forced players to memorize enemy patterns and rely on near-perfect twitch reflexes, the Contra series was a pure joy.

Torchlight; Beyond Good and Evil HD coming this spring to XBLA

  If there are two things I love, it's some Torchlight and Beyond Good and Evil. Two really great franchises that have only seen one game apiece! Thankfully, both Torchlight 2 and Beyond Good and Evil 2 are well underway. Almost as awesome is this little bit of news from Microsoft at CES: in February, Microsoft will have House Party, an event that will see the release of five titles, including Hard Corps Rising, Bejeweled Blitz, Full House Poker, and...wait for it...Torchlight and Beyond Good and Evil HD. In case you didn't pick up on it, this is for the Xbox 360. That's right, Torchlight on the console! Eurogamer is reporting that the game is taking a direct control approach, and that item management and potions are done by the computer. Accordingly, it looks a little different, but should offer some of that addictive loot collecting gameplay. Beyond Good and Evil HD, on the other hand, is a round two for the franchise. After abysmal sales, the series was thought long gone. Instead, Ubisoft announced in 2008 the sequel to the franchise, and late last year showed off the HD version of the original. Having played it, I can say it's a lovely looking game, and with all of the new visual enhancements, it stands up pretty well. All in all, I'm pretty excited about this, and if those other titles (like Hard Corps Uprising, a true Contra game) can stand up, we should have some great games to play this winter on XBLA. Read More
