Everyone has a few strange family members. Your family is extra strange though. For one Grandma Quadwrangle used to always say to remember and use your dimensions. You had not freaking clue what she meant by this, but she seemed to say it a lot. Then there is your uncle, Professor Fitz Quadwrangle. Your mother drops you off at his house every so often and he also greets you with whatever his newest invention may be. In the past these have been jet packs and freeze rays. This time you arrive and the power goes out. Once emergency power comes back up he is able to see and talk to you, but does not remember how he go where he is. Now it is up to you to restore power to the mansion with your uncle’s help.
While waiting in line for the live demo of Assassins Creed 3, I realized there were a plethora of awards for “Best of E3” or “Most Anticipated”, you know, awards of that nature. Naturally, my expectations for the game were high and luckily I was not disappointed.
Making a good puzzle game can be difficult. First you have to figure out a good mechanic for solving the puzzles. Then you have to design puzzles that can be solved with the mechanic, offers a challenge, but does not frustrate players. Quantum Conundrum, developed by Airtight Games and published by Square Enix, has done a good job in puzzling this together. In Quantum Conundrum you have been dropped off to visit uncle, only to find him missing. He is somewhere in his house as he helps you through the game, with varying degrees of usefulness, but does not know where in his house that he actually is (it is pretty big). Well, time to save the crazy scientist.
I want to be clear with something before I give you my impressions on Hitman Absolution, I am a huge fan of the Hitman series. So, if my impressions of Hitman Absolution come off as “fan boyish” it’s because, yes, I am a Hitman fanboy.
Hitman Absolution takes place with our favorite assassin Agent 47.
Star Trek has a new video game to add to the plethora of them out in the world. This one is based in the universe made by J.J. Abrams, and just like they rekindled fan excitement in the movie world for Star Trek it looks like it may do that in the video world as well. This game is a third person shooter placed between the first movie and second movie coming out next year. In the game you play asynchronously as either Captain James T. Kirk or Spock (or both in Co-op mode).
