Brave: A Warrior’s Tale was released for Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii (the PSP version was cancelled) this week and I actually think it looks pretty cool. It’s definitely one of the first games I’ve seen that features Native American mythology and traditional music.
The plot revolves around Brave who, now elderly, tells the tale of his adventurous youth when he embarked on an epic journey in an attempt to save his tribe from the evil, Wendigo. The environment looks great (even if it is a little cartoonish) as he makes his way through forests filled with majestic Redwood trees and …read more
When I first read about this Shiatsu Massage download for the Xbox 360 I was really surprised. I never in a million years imagined that I could get a massage by playing a video game. I know that there have been times when I needed a massage after I placed too much but if Nintendo can get players to workout, Microsoft can inspire their gamers to massage.
Judging from the following two screenshots, you can choose a “solo massage” or a “couples massage.”
In case you’re wondering, this download got the following ratings by the community: Violence=0/3, Sex=0/3, Mature Content=0/3. Obviously, …read more

Mafia II will be released on October 31, 2009 but screenshots from the Xbox 360 version of the game have begun to surface across the internet. Here’s your first look at the game!
The sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven will be set in Empire City (a fictional setting based on a mix of San Francisco and New York City) during the 1940s and 1950s. I’m assuming we can expect some old-school gangster action which I think is a nice change from all the “modern warfare” type games available today.
In the game, players will have a lot of …read more
The demo for the new game, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, will be released on May 1, 2009 to coincide with the theatrical release of the movie of the same name.
Anticipating a high demand, the game will be released on PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, Wii and PlayStation Portable but there will be differences among the formats. Most notably, the version released for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC will be the ‘Uncaged Edition” which will contain more violence and blood.
The X-Men Origins: Wolverine plot will be based on the storyline from the movie and the …read more
Microsoft has another hit on their hands. They have now announced that they have sold more than one million units of Halo Wars, which makes it “the best selling real-time strategy game on any current generation console.” That’s quite an accomplishment given the fact that the game is only available on the Xbox 360. They also provided some amazing statistics:
There have been more than 2.6 million multiplayer matches played
More than 118 years of time has been spent in multiplayer matches on Xbox LIVE
On average, more than 200,000 Halo Wars fans have taken up arms in battles between the UNSC and …read more

As a hero he was falsely imprisoned and set for execution for crimes he didn’t commit. On the day of his sentencing terrorists detonate a experimental bomb that brings the entire city to its knees. Rad is now on the lose to defend himself against …read more
Monsters vs. Aliens: The Video Game will be released on March 24, 2009 and will be based on the Dreamworks movie of the same title which will be released three days later.
Like the film, the game features and incredible cast including the voices of Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Hugh Laurie, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Rainn Wilson, Stephen Colbert and Kiefer Sutherland. I’m not sure it can get much better than that!
When aliens attack, your team of monsters have to fight back to save the world. There are a lot of pretty sweet moves you can use to accomplish this. As …read more
The Watchmen film was released last Friday and it did reasonably well at the box-office. Now you can bring home the action by downloading Watchmen: The End Is Nigh from the Xbox LIVE arcade.
Players (you can play as either Rorscach or Nite Owl) must answer the call and save their city from crime, terror and Underboss, who has broken out of prison.
The action in this superhero-type game is undeniable as you can take on up to 20 enemies at a time using street-fighting moves. You can also engage in multiplayer, split-screen mode.
Here’s the trailer:
This action game was released on …read more
3 on 3 NHL Arcade was released last month and it’s been a real hit with gamers so far. The game offers a unique experience to players who love sports games but are interested in something a little less serious and structured – after all, the players have giant heads and the rink is tiny.
This Xbox LIVE Arcade features the NHL’s top players in a no-holds barred, no rules hockey game. The players can be giants, they can speed-skate (it’s kind of fun to play with bobble head versions of your favorite NHL stars) and use trick moves like spinning …read more
