  • Catching Up With 2009: Brutal Legend

    The first time I saw anything about Brutal Legend was when it graced the cover of an issue of Game Informer. My first thought was that someone had gone and made an awful “hard” version of Guitar Hero. Needless to say, I didn’t give the game much thought at first. However, as the buzz for […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Batman: Arkham Asylum

    There was one game that pretty much everyone here at DHGF was going crazy about last year. As you can surmise, that game was Batman: Arkham Asylum. I don’t know if everyone here is a Batman fan or what, (Wait….there are people who don’t like Batman?) but you couldn’t get near a top ten list […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Jake Hunter Detective Story: Memories of the Past

    I have often lamented how my love for Hotel Dusk and the Ace Attorney series has led me to play a myriad of poor detective games on the DS. I won’t go on about that again for fear of becoming a broken record. Suffice it to say that I still haven’t learned my lesson in […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Naruto Shippuden: Legends: Akatsuki Rising

    It was about two years ago that Naruto Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2: The Phantom Fortress showed up in Alex’s mailbox and he asked us who wanted to cover it. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I volunteered. I was never a fan of Naruto. I usually can’t watch anime, and I stuck my […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Adventures to Go!

    Though I’m not sure when exactly this thing is going up, at least it finally is. I think I started playing this game about a month ago. You might be wondering why it took so long to get this piece up, but the truth is that I only finished the game late on Saturday night. […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Legends of Wrestlemania

    I’m sure there are at least a couple of you that read my last column. Those few of you may recall that I teased this week’s game as being some sort of RPG. So, upon seeing the title for the column or any of the pics, you’re probably wondering if you missed an edition or […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Big Bang Mini

    I usually start these columns off with a little paragraph of two that relates in some way to the reason I decided to play the game. I won’t do that this time. Instead, I’d like to apologize for not getting a column up in the past two weeks. My computer at home suffered a massive […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Overlord Minions

    There were two reasons I was really excited to get my hands on Overlord Minions for the DS. The first was that the Overlord series is one that I find interesting. I don’t know if it is the charm of the minions or the sheer thrill of getting to play the bad guy for once, […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Steambot Chronicles: Battle Tournament

    Here we are in week four of Catching Up With 2009. It has been nearly a month since I started this column, and trust me, I’ve still got a ways to go before I’ve fully caught up with everything. I even ventured over to a new Gamestop in my area and picked up about six […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Resistance Retribution

    So, first things first. I promised that any game that came up in my journey of backlogged games that didn’t have a review, I’d review. That hasn’t changed. I was initially planning to write a separate piece for both the column and review itself. However, after discussing it with my fellow staffers, I’ve decided that […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story!

    Yep. I got a new banner for this thing. Yep. I’m aware it has all the artistic merit of a Miley Cyrus CD. What do you expect? I’m a writer, not an artist. I have several teachers from middle school that can attest to that. If nothing else, it will make sure Henry Hatsworth gets […]

  • Catching Up With 2009: Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box!

    Despite the fact that I am pretty much dirt poor, I buy a ton of games. In fact, I buy more games than I can even play. I’ve lost count of how many excursions to used games shops I’ve walked out of with a handful of games. Most of the time, the games I buy […]
