The Pace of the Game

I wouldn't forget how to read between the one time that I pick up a paperback and the next, but I certainly do forget some of the rules of play for a specific video game often enough between one play session and the next. Relearning how to play creates for a disjointed experience of the long term project of completing a game.

Dark Void

An homage to the pulp sci-fi of the 50s, the Void is a fascinating world, so that makes it all the more painful to watch as this new universe is wasted so completely.

Devil May Cry 4

Devil May Cry 4 intermittently strives for a kind of high-Gothic camp, but it jumps willy-nilly into steampunk, lasers-and-robots future shock, and lost-civilization exoticism.

Devil May Cry 4

The Devil May Cry series takes neither violence nor sex seriously, intending to see both as merely the vehicle to a very basic form of visual stimulation.

Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles

Although the game raises just as many questions as it answers, superfans will surely relish the narrative crumbs dropped from the table as they discover a bit more about the characters' motivations.
