OXCGN’s Resident Evil: Revelations Review
Is a port of a 3DS game a revelation?

Not since Dead Space when it was released in 2008 have I so enjoyed meticulously traversing the innards of a derelict ship in search of answers whilst raising ever more questions.
Slowly wandering isolated corridors, entering every new room with a sense of dread that behind any corner, inside any object or air vent, a grotesque creature could emerge.

OXCGN’s Call of Juarez: Gunslinger Review
Shot Down, or a Blaze of Glory?
by David Hilton

I once heard that more cowboys were killed in the movies than there were actual cowboys in real history.
If that is so, the downloadable Ubisoft game Call of Juarez: Gunslinger has probably quadrupled the number of dead cowboys in the mythological Wild Wild West.
After the unfortunate detour that was Call of Juarez: The Cartel, this game has gone back to where the series belongs…in the cliché riddled frontier of America in the late 1800′s.
There are certain periods of history that are just perfect for video games, and the Wild West is one of them.
The big change to the series this time is that it is a downloadable on Steam, Xbox Live Arcade, and the Playstation Network…and is a lot cheaper.
Does that mean that Ubisoft have skimped on the quality of the title, looking to make easy dough?

OXCGN’s Star Trek: The Video Game Review
Dammit Jim, I’m a movie tie-in, not an innovative game!

Hollywood seems to be stuffing us full of sequels, prequels and re-boots these days. Most of them are terrible, but once in a while a good one sneaks through. Star Trek was one such successful re-boot, and now we have the sequel rapidly approaching.
Simply titled Star Trek: The Video Game, the game was released as a tie in to the new movie, Star Trek: Into Darkness. It is set sometime between the two movies and promised a whole lot for Star Trek fans. It promised, but did it deliver?
Well the uninspired title gives you a hint, unfortunately.
