Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken Review – PSN

Ruaidhri Walker

Birds are a complicated creature for me to form an opinion on, they’re aggressive and annoying but can be fun when they talk and quite often are beautiful, this coincidently sums up my feelings towards Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken.

Rocketbirds was originally a flash game, and much in the same way as Alien Hominid, it’s spread it’s wings and come home to roost on consoles. It’s transportation to the console market has found it perfectly set up as an exclusive PSN title.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generation Review – Xbox 360 and PS3

It is said there are only a few certainties in life; taxes and death. Well by proxy of death there is another, getting old. At age 25 I feel like I was born in a perfect time to enjoying gaming, systems were out and gaming staples were in place by the time I was able to comprehend what a console was and how to use a controller. Technology and genre’s are unlikely to vastly jump from the categories we have now; fighters, platformers, FPS’s are all going to advance but the basic premise is still there.

P.Walter Tugnut, a skin head with a gun and wearing a green body warmer, or is it a barrel? No it’s a jet-pack. In this game you can choose any number of outfits for the hyper-violent Tugnut. What’s caused this red mist to descend on the presumably previously pacifist Tugnut? A giant robot destroyed his house and had a disturbing sexual encounter with his truck. Within the first minute of this Shoot em ‘up platformer you learn all this character motivation and are sent on your way with a gun and a jump button.

In 1998 something was spawned, something that at the time no one could have predicted it’s popularity, even I fell under it’s spell and spent many an evening watching it with my family. 13 years later and that horse you hear still being flogged is “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?”.

With it’s rights sold a number to many different countries, it was only a matter of time before a computer game would be expressed from the powerful teat of the franchise. The first came in 2000 for the Playstation, and to be perfectly honest what’s changed?

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Review – Xbox360/PS3/PC

Ruaidhri Walker

Zombies are awesome. I’ve written two reviews of games on this site which feature them, and I’ve even written an article on why we need more zombies in gaming. As such you would assume that a game like Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City would be a zombie apocalypse wet dream for me, and thankfully it is.

Dungeon Defenders Review – PSN/XBLA/PC

Ruaidhri Walker

The first thing you should know about this game is that it’s a bully, a big mean bully, it picks on you the player and makes you feel like nothing. Now much like dealing with a real life bully there’s only two ways to sort it. The first is to cry and never return to a mile radius of said tormentor, the second and better option is to gather a few friends to beat the crap out of the bully.

Ugly Americans Review – PSN/XBLA

Ruaidhri Walker

Ugly Americans is a Comedy Central animated series based around an alternative reality version of New York where monsters, demons and freaks all co-inhabit with humans. The story follows Mark a social worker who helps integrate the various abominations into New York and find them jobs and homes. Being a big fan of the series I thought I should be the one to give the game a go and let you readers know how awesome it is. Unfortunately it’s not awesome, it’s a struggle.
