Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review

It seems that Treyarch, the developers, have tried to focus on a more developed backstory and character storyline than actual gameplay. That may not sit well with gamers who want a full blown world war experience.

Lucius (PC) Review

Lucius (PC) Review

Lucius is a new horror adventure/puzzle game that is a little different. Instead of a typical survival horror scenario, you play the role of the antihero, a 7-year old boy who happens to have been born on June 6, 1966 (6/6/66).

Brink Info from Richard Ham

Brink Info from Richard Ham

If the gaming industry had something like IMDB, you would see Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars, Fable 2, The Sims and the Syphon Filter, just to name a few, under Richard Ham’s bio. Later this year, Richard will add creative director of Brink, a new first person shooter being developed by Splash Damage […]

Zalman Trimon ZM-M220W Stereo Monitor

While visiting Zalman at a few trade shows, I was introduced to their new stereoscopic 3d monitor: the Zalman Trimon 22-inch monitor.  nVidia has been showing off their own solutions that use any regular monitor, so what makes this monitor different, and why would you want to buy one? I spoke with Richard Chung of […]

Five Things Square Needs to do so Final Fantasy XIII doesn’t suck.

Five Things Square Needs to do so Final Fantasy XIII doesn’t suck.

It’s no secret that Square-Enix isn’t the juggernaut they once were during the PS1 and PS2 eras. That’s not to say they aren’t a respected company, they just aren’t the be-all, end-all RPG empire that they were. Most of this happened with Final Fantasy XII, a game that was critically acclaimed by the media, and […]

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Review

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Review

The highly popular Call of Duty series has returned in grand style with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The game not only continues the epic series in a grand way but, for my money, is the best in the series to date and is one of the most intense and gripping games ever crafted. […]

Obscure: The Aftermath (PSP) Review

Obscure: The Aftermath (PSP) Review

I don’t believe there are enough survival horror games.  Resident Evil rocked for a while, then they decided to focus on insane hillbillies instead of what they were good at… zombies.  The original Xbox hailed tons of awesome horror games, which made it my favorite console to play when it was popular.  Cold Fear, Doom […]

Mass Effect 2: Hands On

Mass Effect 2: Hands On

We checked out a playable demo of BioWare’s Mass Effect 2 at PAX when we promptly entered the showroom floor and it seems to be on the right track. From the get-go the game seems to throw you into the story, offering some dialogue options to uncover hoopla in some instances, while others can let […]

If you’re looking for something that reinvents the genre much like Warcraft III did a few years then ago-keep looking. […]

Red Dead Redemption First Look

Red Dead Redemption First Look

OCmodshop was first in line to get a glimpse of Red Dead Redemption; the sequel to 2005’s critically mixed Red Dead Revolver. Keep in mind, Rockstar was very tight about security breaches. No pictures could be taken, videos recorded etc. So we have only what we saw. The game takes place around 1910 in the […]
