Megaman 9 & 10
Saturday, July 31, 2010
I originally bought Megaman 9 when it first released. I played for a week, and found it way too hard to get attached to… It then sat on my Xbox 360 for over a year while I played through many other
Scene It!

LOST: Via Domus

Mass Effect 2 is an extremely well designed game (Bioware does it yet again). The systems and mechanics present here are fantastic, and really brought me into the gameplay. I believe it was an even

After going through, and failing the peer review system for XNA twice now I have built up some complaints I have about the system that gets independent games from the XNA community site, to the XBox

Monday, March 8, 2010
So, as Truth or Treason makes its way through the  Peer Review process I have been testing other XBL Independent Games. Since it is a community after all, it is an unspoken requirement that you do

I have been intrigued with the idea of this game since the first developer diary video almost a year ago. The more I watched of these videos, the more intrigued I was. I have yet to purchase a PS3,
