Review: Sam and Max 303: They Stole Max's Brain

Subtitle: 
Guest starring Humphrey Bogart as "Sam."

Thus far, season 3 of Sam and Max has been stellar. Episode 1 introduced the toys of power which give Max various nifty puzzle-solving abilities. Episode 2 did an amazing job of providing a fun story and interesting characters. Does episode 3: They Stole Max's Brain continue the upward trend?

Review: eversion

thumbnail_summary: 
In August 2008, a brilliant game was released. Initially appearing to be a simple platformer, the game soon revealed itself to be far more, turning the genre on its head. Pushing the boundaries of what could be done in gaming, its elegant design, user-friendly mechanics, and meaningful depth placed it firmly at the apex of modern games. Meanwhile, players and onlookers whispered at its hidden meaning and even went so far as to describe the game as “art.” That game is now available on Steam. That game, is Braid.

E3: Nintendo Wii: Looking Back and Forward

Subtitle: 
A three part series highlighting the current-gen systems.
thumbnail_summary: 
<p> Wiimote motion controller. Hundreds of thousands of people flooded stores causing numerous outlets to sellout of the console. The Wii was a smash hit, drawing in new customers, and expanding the market to seemingly all ages. However, over the years, the amount of shovelware and lack of &ldquo;hardcore&rdquo; games have caused some gamers to move over to other systems that appeal more to their tastes. That being said, Nintendo made a strong push at this year&#39;s E3, revitalizing many of their tried and true IP&#39;s. If you&#39;re considering buying a Nintendo Wii, here are the three games you must have, three under-appreciated games, and three games to look forward to from this year&#39;s E3.</p>

E3: Playstation 3: Looking Back and Forward

<p> Sony&rsquo;s Playstation 3 has made quite a transformation over the years. At its unveiling at E3 way back in 2006 the PS3 came off as unappealing with its $599 price tag and thin lineup of games. Over time, Sony was able to come back with a solid library of exclusives and offsetting the price disadvantage with free online play. If you&rsquo;ve just joined the PS3 bandwagon (or are thinking about buying one) here are three great games you simply must have, three that are great but a bit underappreciated, and three that this year&rsquo;s E3 has me stoked for.</p>
