Review: Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 – PS3

The Naruto anime series has had it’s Gaming Counterpart, with over 20+ games and counting. Most games consisted of a very small taste of the broader storyline of Naruto. Ubisoft’s versions were solid games and really tried to encompass more story and they still rank as some of my fav Naruto Games. Then we were introduced to the Ninja Storm series by CyberConnect2. A real game change for Naruto both in terms of graphics and gameplay. The long awaited sequel has finally debuted jumping straight into the Shippuden Storyline. How does this game compare to the already establish game franchise?

Review: Rock Band 3 – Xbox 360

The Rhythm Game genre has been evolving from the days of DDR to the full fledge 4 piece Band games that we know of today. In the wake of the evolution there  has been a considerable flood of ill forgotten sequels that have burned even the most loyal of gamers. One game series in particular seemed to stray from the pack. The game series known as Rock Band. Offering a wide range of customization in terms of your Band Members coupled with Downloadable Music Tracks it seemed the series knew what it was doing. Rock Band 3 has made it’s official debut. I’ve had a week or so to go through it, from solo to group play. How does this game fair in the ever changing Rhythm genre?
