No More Heroes' Otaku Travis Touchdown won't be slaying his way to the top on the XBOX 360 next year. Instead, Konami has confirmed Heroes' Paradise, the HD remake of the first in the No More Heroes Wii series, will be a Playstation 3 exclusive with Move support.

Move support is a logical decision, as the original game used the Wii Remote to wield Travis' beam-katana as he mutilated his way to the #1 assassin spot. As for my own personal speculation: the XBOX 360 may have lost out on the game because of Kinect's lack of a physical controller.

Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

Put On Your Old Running Shoes.

From the moment the SEGA logo sings “Sayyy-gahhh!” nostalgia will set in, and Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 does a great job of recapturing the feeling of the original 16-bit games (though sometimes too well). With levels named and created very similarly to those of Sonic 1 through 3, there isn’t much that’s new.

Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Subtitle: 
Castlevania finally nails 3D gaming while injecting some new blood into the series.
thumbnail_summary: 
Mention the name Castlevania, and many memories start to stir: Dracula’s monolithic castle looming above its explorers, a labyrinthine interior fitted with secret passageways and deadly traps, the crack of the Belmonts’ whip… Since the stellar Symphony of the Night, the Castlevania series has consistently produced top quality games time and time again, and has become almost synonymous with action-exploration 2D gaming. Where the series had often failed, however, were its ill fated forays into the third dimension. Lords of Shadow, the latest installation to the Castlevania franchise, finally conquers 3D gaming while adding a double espresso shot of action to a series that had been suffering from stagnation.

Review: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

Subtitle: 
If Nathan Drake Escaped The Matrix
thumbnail_summary: 
<p> I can&rsquo;t quite figure out why people are raving about Enslaved. Though it&rsquo;s an entertaining adventure game and the characters interact well, I feel like I&rsquo;m the only one bothered by the fact that the game is a post-apocalyptic Uncharted, with elements from Prince of Persia, Resident Evil 4, God of War, Jak &amp; Daxter, and Gears of War thrown in like some sort of &ldquo;Will it blend?&rdquo; video. And though it does blend well for the most part, it often feels as if a beefed-up Nathan Drake and a useful, hacker version of Yorda from ICO (who speaks your language this time) entered the non-computerized part of the Matrix world, but with more plant life.</p>

Actor Who Inspired Nathan Drake Wants to Be Nathan Drake

We live in a divided country. Sure, we can’t agree on whether to allow gays to marry or women to have abortions, and we’re constantly bickering about the differences between red and blue states. We know Barack Obama’s got a bit on his plate these days being King of the World or whatever his official title is, but if there’s one cause Mr. Obama can swing his weight behind, it’s this: Nathan Fillion wants to be Nathan Drake.

Review: Dead Rising 2

Subtitle: 
Creatively Maiming Zombies Never Gets Old.
thumbnail_summary: 
Drinking coffee at my desk, I can feel just how weighty my mug is, probably enough to smash a forehead or two into hamburger helper. Actually, come to think of it, my stapler’s on the hefty CQC-conducive side too. Oh yes, I could turn into a corporate commando. These are the things you start considering after playing Dead Rising 2. It celebrates the every-day MacGyver, the person who’s stopped and said, “why can’t I attach a super-soaker to a keg?” Or “That coat-hangar’s a Bat’leth crying to happen.” And though you may not be trapped in a pool with an Orca, you’re facing that other great threat to civilization: Zombies. So if you’re fond of weaponized arts and crafts as well as facing the undead, welcome home.

Core Gamers Spend More Time Playing Than Ever

Kinect

Review: Valkyria Chronicles 2

Subtitle: 
Are You Up On Your War Studies?
thumbnail_summary: 
<p> Giving an underrated game a sequel on different system would normally be a death sentence but Sega has handled the transition from console to portable superbly with Valkyria Chronicles II, proving that bringing the series to a mobile platform was a great choice. The World War-style third-person shooter/SRPG battles work well on the PSP because of the simple fact that the system can be put to sleep and taken with you - a big plus for a game that can range between 30 and 100+ hours.</p>
