New Years Resolution : Play More Video Games

free video game giveaway2010 is almost over and by now we have all prepared a list of resolutions for 2011. One of my new year resolutions is to play more video games. Yes that's right, in the past year I have noticed that playing video games has helped me to relax more when I was stressed. I would come home from work a little strung out and would start playing Call Of Duty Modern Warfare and it would be all good from there.

I'm very excited about some of the new game releases in 2011, I can't wait to get my hands on these games and start playing till my fingers hurt. Here is a list of video games releases of 2011 that I'm eagerly awaiting:

1) Deus Ex : Human Revolution
2) Star Wars : The Old Republic
3) Uncharted 3 : Drake's Deception
4) Mass Effect 3
5) Portal 2
6) Batman : Arkham City

Hope you are also able to get these games and enjoy playing them.


Tron Evolution Game Review

tron video gameTron Evolution is gorgeous, ambitious, and a bit flawed. It functions as a prequel to the upcoming film Tron Legacy. The story is okay but not exactly a must have for those excited for the film. The cut scenes could have been handled better from the writing to to the actual editing. What Tron Evolution is, is ambitious, this game requires lots of skills. They combine wall running, tank battles, light cycle races, and disc combat all into one game and that's not easy.

The is some serious combat repetition in this game, but there are a lot of combo moves and different discs to fight with. As long as you keep adapting and changing things up in this game you will continue to have fun. But if you don't you will be bored to digital tears. The soundtrack is awesome featuring 2 tracks from Daft Punk and several other artists that manage to keep you heart racing.

It's a very pretty game and captures the feel of the movies. It might be rough around the edges as far as the game play but I would like to see a sequel. If you're a hardcore gamer and you do like the Tron series then you should have plenty of fun with Tron Evolution. I give Tron Evolution 7 stars out of 10.


Disney's Epic Mickey Game Review

epic mickey gameEpic Mickey is inventive, fun, and enthralling. It captures that Disney feeling from the get go. You're responsible for turning a cartoon world into a wasteland, you're dragged kicking and screaming into the fight to control that world. This idea is what makes the game fantastic because you can repair parts of this world or destroy them. Which makes for some very interesting level design. You have the choice to either erase your enemies or bring to them to your side by painting them which makes them fight for you. These 2 game mechanics alone adds some great dept to the game play that you rarely see on the Wii.

The controls however can be a bit dodgy at times and the in game cameras also something you will have to trouble shoot. Because of the complexity of the game play the camera angle your working with can be your greatest enemy, these however are not deal breakers. You will constantly be move from 3 dimensional levels to 2 dimensional levels, this jumping back and forth really keeps the game fresh. It lets you explore the many different styles mickey mouse has gone through the years. It's this constantly changing environment that makes you want to push forward and see what they are going to do next. It doesn't matter of your Disney fan or not, this is a solid game with a wonderful amount of ingenuity and a very good story. I give Epic Mickey 8 stars out of 10.
