-The Three Dudes in a Room Team-
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
The story is about a dude named Corvo Attano, and he is the royal guard for the empress of the city of Dunwall, but that's all I'm gonna say about that for the sake of not revealing any spoilers.
This game, was made by Bethesda, and has great graphics that are very reminiscent of Bioshock. The voice acting is well done, but some of the enemies dialogue can get a little old. The gameplay is dynamic with a good control scheme and a wide range of unlockable goodies.
One thing I was hoping for in this game was an open world layout, but instead it has a more mission and objective based style, but it is handled quite well and doesn't get too repetitious.
The story is very intriguing, with a lot of background story on various characters and the city itself, which is something Bethesda is very good at formulating, as evidenced by The Elder Scrolls franchise.
All in all, I would give this game a 4.5 out of 5 stars, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes stealth games.

I wasn't totally impressed with Hydro, mostly just because I kept getting killed. The map is a hydroelectric plant, which makes for some intriguing gameplay, including a part of the map that has water flowing through it, and at a certain time after the game has started, said water flows extremely fast, killing everything in it's wake.
Grind is set in a skatepark. There aren't many corners in this map, most of everything is rounded, with terrain including ramps, and halfpipes and the like. I really like the no corners thing, as it adds some nifty cover opportunities.
Included in the map pack is a new gun, entitled the Peacekeeper, a hybrid between an SMG and an Assault Rifle. the thing packs a pretty good punch, with good maneuverability to boot, but I'm gonna stick with my PDW-57.
I also got my hands on the new zombies map and mode, Die Rise is what I played first, and it is awesome, now I only got into the 10th round, but those rounds were filled with joy. The map introduces steep drops and verticality, a first for zombies, this new found dimension adds another element of paranoia to the gameplay.
I also tried out the new mode, entitled Turned. Turned is a game that is reminiscent to a game of tag you might have enjoyed with your childhood chums...if said chums were human eating monstrosities. The gameplay consists of you and some other human players that start off as zombies, the first one to find the cure becomes a human and must fend off the other players, once the human (it) gets killed by the undead hooligans, the hooligan that killed him gains the gift of life, and must fend off the undead. Each kill you make, and every time you become human, you get points, when the time runs out, the person with the most points wins.
All in all, I like this new addition. If you own an Xbox, you should buy it. if you don't then you're out of luck.
This is Matt, with game corner, signing off.

Just like the title says, THQ game developer and publisher has filed for bankruptcy. In case you were wondering, THQ made awesome games like "Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine" and the "Saints Row" series, although they did have their fair share of awful games too, it truly feels like I've just lost a friend, all those years of seeing the logo floating past my screen, and now it's all gone. So long THQ, rest in peace.

Graphics are not that great, even for low budget indie standards. Sound is kinda sub-par, with voice acting being a rough patch. The interface can be a little confusing at times, I found my self skimming through a walkthrough, just to figure out how to put the key in the keyhole at the beginning. Pretty much the only redeeming quality is the story, which is still pretty forgettable. So all in all, I give this game a 3 out of 5, which is a solid "meh". If you want to play it, you can find it on Steam fairly cheap.

Hey, dudes, I'm bored, so I thought I'd post a review of my favorite indie game. Braid is a PC game about a dude who wants to get his girl back from an evil monster, and does so by using magical time altering abilities. So, the graphics are about what you'd expect from an indie title, but they're more or less, pretty good, the music is pretty nifty, and the puzzles will stump just about anybody, I had to resort to an internet walkthrough, also, the game has a lot of "Super Mario" references and easter eggs, and I love easter eggs, so that was a big plus for me.
There's no voice acting, so naturally, there's nothing to screw up in that department. The story is kinda weird, but definitely worth your time, and the ending, is...well, let's just say, that your jaw will descend to the utmost core of the earth. All in a all, I give this game a solid 4 out of 5 stars. If you like indie games, check it out on Steam for a cheap price.
Well, that's all I got to say about that. Hang loose, dudes!

Hey, dudes! Matt here, and I thought I'd bring you a review of an older video game.
Mortal Kombat 9, also known simply as "Mortal Kombat" is a remake of the hugely popular Mortal Kombat franchise. The game is updated with newer graphics that actually surprised me for a 2011 console game. From eye-popping maps to updated character designs to the awesome gameplay, this game boats how great a remake can really be.
Story mode will keep newcomers entertained while also keeping the interest of long time fans, with familiar faces all around. The dialogue is pretty good, with a few jokes thrown in to lighten things up.
And the voice actors did a fairly good job.
My rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars, so whether you're a n00b to fighting games, or an old MK pro, you will enjoy MK9. Certain retailers that I don't want to mention (starts with a g, ends with a p) will have this older title used at reasonable prices.
This is Matt with your game review, signing off.
