An utter masterpiece the likes of which has yet to be beaten

mashakosha | June 20, 2012 | Review of Beyond Good and Evil

BG&E is just brilliant in every way. These days it needs a bit of tweaking to run properly, but once you do, you dive in to a really unique, interesting universe. The story, the characters, and environments are all fantastic. Jade is a great female lead, and better than most in this age of over-sexualised or weak women, and her supporting cast are all equally great. The dialogue is pretty memorable too, especially some of Double H's lines. And one of my favourite things is the constant presence of the main enemies. They're pretty dominant and oppressive, just as they should be.

The most fun you'll have

mashakosha | June 17, 2012 | Review of Saints Row: The Third

There are very few games that exist purely, and I mean solely devoted to fun. Saints Row The Third is one that most definitely is. Okay, so it's world may not be as big as the likes of GTA4, and the missions may not be as story-centric as the Assassin's Creed games. But when you sit down and lose yourself in Steelport for a couple of hours, you'll be amazed at how quickly that time will disappear. Whether you want to explore the world, clean up the streets and liberate them from other gangs into the Saints own hands, or just blow stuff up, you'll have fun doing it. There's no shortage of laughs here either. Listen to the radio stations as you drive around to hear greatly distorted views of your exploits as the city tries to cover for you, drop in on the mayor of Steelport or, for the nerdy laughs, take on the Decker gang.

Oh. And there are three different tanks.

And jets.

You do the maths.

Surpasses expectations!

mashakosha | June 17, 2012 | Review of Sonic Generations

Sonic Generations is a worthy addition to the Sonic catalogue, and it’s been a while since I’ve thought about saying that. Sega have done a great job, not only with making it, but marketing too. There are a couple of rare glitches which I expect most wont even come across. With an Online Mode to challenge your friends at time attacks adding even more value, it's well worth it, even if you’re not a hardcore Sonic fan. This is Sonic, no matter what your preference is, and if you liked any Sonic games ever, you’ll enjoy this.

Not half bad

mashakosha | Aug. 5, 2011 | Review of Magicka: Vietnam DLC

I picked this up, honestly, expecting a bigger addition to the game rather than a simple challenge map. However, it's still really fun, especially with friends. And I think that really sums Magicka up as a whole; good on it's own, better with friends! Funny story actually, I heard someone bought this, surprised at the low price, believing it was actually Bad Company 2 Vietnam. The guys at Paradox and Arrowhead know how to do parodies and this is proof of it.
