QCF: War of the Roses

Have multiplayer games given you the cold shoulder? Are the typical players online too interested in their kill to death ratio to provide a challenge? Thankfully the “bros” are not playing War of the Roses, the latest release from Fatshark and Paradox Interactive. The player will side with either the House of York or the House of Lancaster as both factions wage a bloody war for control of the throne. Although this title has a limited range of features, the core gameplay and frantic action is enjoyable and provides a very different approach to multiplayer gaming.

QCF: NiGHTS into Dreams HD

Any Sega Saturn fan worth his or her salt has seen, heard of or played Sonic Team's NiGHTS into Dreams at some point. Like many of the best cult classics out there, it took a while for NiGHTS to achieve mainstream popularity despite critical success, and it became a title that was well respected and sought after long after the Sega Saturn died. 

When Sega began porting Saturn and Dreamcast classics to this generation's systems, NiGHTS into Dreams almost instantly became one of the most-requested titles by fans. For years they begged and now, Sega has finally delivered with NiGHTS into Dreams HD.

QCF: Hell Yeah: Wrath of The Dead Rabbit

The internet sure is a funny thing, it can be the outlet for every resource you happen to be in need of imaginable, even if it’s an album of lewd pictures of a naked evil demon lord rabbit, bathing with his wittle rubber ducky! Arkedo, the developer behind of the string of indie games like Big Bang Mini and The Arkedo Series which includes the games SWAP!, PIXEL!, and JUMP!. Now backed with the major publisher SEGA, Arkedo successfully releases it latest title Hell Yeah: The Wrath of The Dead Rabbit, where you assume the control of anti-hero Ash, Prince of Hell, on a quest to recover…nudie pics.

While there is an abundance of indie side-scrolling platformers available on nearly every medium imaginable these days, Hell Yeah does its part to distinguish itself from the masses through a unique explosion of colors and charisma that will excite the synapses, with details of art unlike anything truly seen within a game before…

QCF: Borderlands 2

There are some simple pleasures involved with gaming that any self-respecting gamer can enjoy. Two of those things are explosions and loot. Just blowing some shit up and then finding a new sweet ass gun with a shark teeth paint job brings a smile to my face every time. The first Borderlands scratched that itch so much that I pumped almost 100 hours into it across all three platforms. Gearbox sets out to do this again with Borderlands 2. Hopefully, this sequel will add a narrative that makes playing through it alone worthwhile and some variety to the last game’s repeated desert and factory environments. Also, more dub step.

QCF: Tiny Troopers

It’s taken me awhile to wrap my head around the words I want to say about Tiny Troopers. Tiny Troopers is an iPhone/iPad game brought to PC by developer Kukouri and advertised as a strategy game with a quirky sense of humor. But, Tiny Troopers is neither of these things. In fact, from the word go this game just goes downhill and ends up being an absolute mess. Not from a technical standpoint mind you but a gameplay standpoint.

QCF: Dead Or Alive 5


Team Ninja has seen better days. Their recent efforts towards a blockbuster action game failed since Tomonobu Itagaki left after the completed development of Ninja Gaiden II. In the aftermath of Metroid: Other M and chasing after the same goal of Ninja Gaiden 3 to appeal to western sensibilities, Dead or Alive 5 is the latest installment in the storied 3D fighting franchise that aspires to be relevant again in the emergent renaissance of fighting games 2012 has seen.

QCF: Tokyo jungle

In the seemingly desolate urban ruins of the once established city of Tokyo, a creature emerges. A tiny Pomeranian dog reveals himself out in the open, casting aside his thin veil of secrecy the tall grass in streets of Dogenzaka provided. Grazing in the distance in front of a department store, a lone rabbit is quietly stalked by the Pomeranian, completely unaware of impending doom that lurks upon it. As the Pomeranian readies its strike, a giant lion bursts through the window of the department store and mauls them both into submission. The lion is pleased with his newly acquired meal…until he’s interrupted with a challenge from a pack of chimpanzees and its cleat-wearing leader.
