Magic 2015 – Duels of the Planeswalkers Coming this Summer

My Magic: the Gathering content here on GAJ has all but dried up, but that doesn’t mean my love for the game has completely faded.  With that said, I’m excited to pass on the news that Magic 2015 – Duels of the Planeswalkers will be releasing at some point this Summer.  This will be the […]

Eight to Consider: Spelunky Monsters Part 2 (The Good)

In the last installment of my ongoing Spelunky series, I went through some of my least favorite (or most troublesome) enemies in the game.  This time around I’m going to once again discuss some of the monsters you’ll come across. While each is still a deadly threat (in most instances), each of the following can […]

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Review

Platforms: Xbox Live Arcade (reviewed), Playstation Network, and PC I’d have thought you crazy if you were to tell me that the same studio responsible for The Darkness and Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay was going to make a game that would affect me emotionally more than any other game released this year. […]

Eight to Consider: Spelunky Monsters Part 1 (The Bad)

As my admiration for Spelunky continues to grow, I’d like to keep covering it whenever possible.  Earlier in the month I covered some of my favorite items and this time around I’m going to discuss some of the enemies that tend to give me the most trouble.  Hopefully newcomers to the game will find this […]

Eight to Consider: Spelunky Items

[Information that some may deem "spoilers" ahead.] I’ve made my love for Spelunky well known here at GAJ, but in preparation for the PS3/Vita release, I’ve been playing a ton of it on XBLA.  I originally bought Spelunky on XBLA last year when it first came out and even reviewed it here on the site.  […]

Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 Review

Platforms: Xbox Live Arcade (reviewed), PlayStation Network, PC, iPad It’s summer time and we all know what that means.  No, I’m not talking about burning alive in the hot sun or possible death from heat stroke.  Well, those are legitimate answers as well, but I’m talking specifically about a new Magic: The Gathering – Duels […]

Time Traveling

It’s a good time to gamer if you’re in your late 20′s through early 30′s. There’s a variable tidal wave of stuff coming our way, hoping to grab our nostalgia by the wallet. As I posted earlier, Earthbound is on the Wii U Virtual Console as of today. Also available today on the 3DS eShop […]

Why Not Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse Has Turned Into One Of My Favorite Experiences This Year

Platform: Xbox 360 Every once and a while, a game goes completely under the radar before it finds itself on either physical or digital shelves. State of Decay fell into that category when I turned on my 360 a couple of weeks ago to see what was new. After playing the demo, I was convinced […]

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review

 Platforms: Xbox 360 (reviewed), Playstation 3, and PC Blood Dragon is quite the sales pitch for Far Cry 3. After spending some time with them, the first two Far Cry games didn’t do anything that made me latch onto them. Hell, I never even gave the third entry a try. After putting in six or […]
