Mount & Blade: Warband
Lots of fun on its own merits but a terrible use of a license, as I didn't hear "Spill The Wine" or "Low Rider" once. 7/10

2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa
This is easily the prettiest and most feature-rich "running into guys and getting the ball taken away" simulator I've ever played, but I can't tell you if it's worth a shit above Easy. 8/10

Super Street Fighter IV
The only disappointment is that they didn't go right for the Hyper Ultra Tournament Alpha prefix. 8/10

Dead To Rights: Retribution
Tonight we're going to make action games like it's 1999. 5/10

Monster Hunter Tri
If you're wondering where you've seen such rigid and overlong swing animations before, load up Baseball for the NES. 7/10

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
