XCOM: Enemy Unknown: First Impressions

I’ve played 22 hours of XCOM so far, and it’s a tribute to the length and complexity of the game that I don’t know how far along I am. I reckon I’m far enough in to give some first impressions, if not a full review of the game. So –…

Hearthfire DLC announced for Skyrim

The second expansion for hit Bethesda RPG Skyrim was announced today. The new DLC will be called Hearthfire, and will focus around building a home and starting a family. The expansion will essentially add a property market to the game, with houses available in a variety of locales including rather exotic ones…

Review: Shank 2

Shank 2 is the video game equivalent to a Grindhouse flick. Awesome story, hero asked to save the day and gory as hell. For the last reason alone should be a good indication of the type of game your getting into. And if you can read between the lines, it…

The “Kollection” packs together the first Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 in one convenient bundle. Although offering no graphical changes, there is a lot of nostalgic value for those…

Review: Bastion (XBLA)

At the recommendation of fellow PerezStart writer AduceClean I picked up Bastion, Microsoft’s first game of this years “Summer of Arcade”. Bastion is a fast paced, customizable action-RPG with a solid story. The graphics are bright and colorful, almost like a painting come to life; pure eye-candy. While the main…
