Trenched (Iron Brigade) Review

Trenched, or Iron Brigade as the original title was changed to (it’s still called Trenched in the US until November 30th, when it releases in Europe), is yet another stylized title in the portfolio of developer Double Fine Games. It takes the third person shooter genre and tilts it on its ear, adding in strong tower defense elements as your mechanized mobile armor, called a trench, stands guard against waves of various televised monstrosities, the pawns of two altered geniuses locked in battle with the fate of the world on the line. So is their arcade offering a blast, or is Iron Brigade shooting blanks?

Solatorobo: Red the Hunter Review

With the DS getting killed off by its 3D-capable big brother, it’s becoming harder and harder to find new titles for the original system that are more than mere shovelware. With this game being the spiritual successor to a cult classic and hidden gem of the PSX, as well as being a decade in the making, is Solatorobo: Red the Hunter a well nurtured developer’s dream or is it a little too aged to stand on its own against the competition?

Story

You are Cole MacGrath, the ‘Demon’ of Empire City. You unwittingly set off an explosion that leveled 5 city blocks, killed tens of thousands of people and started the worldwide spread of a lethal plague that just might be the end of humanity. It also gave you, as well as a few select others, superpowers. One of them is now a gigantic monstrocity, a manifestation of chaos that grows stronger with every life it extinguishes as it carves its way down the Eastern Coast of the US, following your evacuation to New Marais, Louisiana.You made this mess and have the ability to do something about it, but will you?

TSG Video Reviews: Ilomilo

Today I’m taking a look at a cool Indie game developed by Southend Interactive called Ilomilo. It’s a fun, imaginative puzzler with bright sounds and cartoony music.

Game Review: New Super Mario Bros. Wii

I know it’s been out for a little bit, but hey it’s the last month of school and that means gearing up for finals…so calm down.

I review probably one of the best original wii games to come out this year, and to be clear by original I mean no “New Play Control” or “Trilogy” packs.

I skip out on reviewing the multiplayer mostly because I don’t have any friends around when I want to capture the footage, but also because you’re most likely not going to buy the game for the multiplayer. Anyway enjoy, and comments are always welcome.
