The Games of January 2016

Puppeteer (PS3, 2013) PRICE: $10
A delightful and unique platforming experience that was much too overlooked with a great presentation and visuals that haven’t aged.
RATING: 4 out of 6

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (PS3, 2009) PRICE: $12
Pretty decent character action game for the action gamer that has already played all the big action games and is looking for more.
RATING: 4 out of 6

Red Faction: Guerrilla (PS3, 2009) PRICE: $7
A fun time with the destructible man-made structures, but not a lot else to entertain. Still a decent time to be had with low expectations.
RATING: 4 out of 6

The Warriors (PS2, 2005) PRICE: $25
A great amount of love went into the creation of this game based on the 1979 cult-classic film, but the different gameplay elements leave a bit to be desired.
RATING: 4 out of 6

Devil’s Third (WU, 2015) PRICE: $85
Originally going to be a THQ published PS3/X360 game until an untimely death of THQ. It was picked up by Nintendo and made a Wii U exclusive. It’s a shooter/melee hybrid with mediocre shooting and even worse melee. This coming from one of the main people behind the well received Ninja Gaiden reboot series it’s pretty baffling at how bad it turned out to be. Only time will tell if the Itagaki led Valhalla Studios will prove this to be an unfortunate train wreck or a telling reality of Tomonobu’s less than stellar game development ability. If you’re curious to try this out, I recommend the less costly digital eShop release as the North American physical release was apparently printed in low numbers.
RATING: 2 out of 6

    • I don’t remember any of the QTEs in X-Men Origins being aggravating for me. The game was really easy overall.

      The prices I listed aren’t what I paid for the game, they’re about what you can expect to pay right now on the secondary market.

  1. $85?! Are you kidding?!!! No thank you! I remember Gamestop’s TV thing gave mention to it, and it left me scratching my head like, “Seriously? You guys are advertising that?”
