It's not a bad premise. What would happen if all the world's power ceased to exist? No cars, no electricity, no mechanics, no technology, no medicine. Basic necessities (like clean water and food) define life or death and basic amenities (like toilet paper) become a thing in the past. It really is a cool idea: Bows and arrows, horse drawn pick up trucks, the word "Google" being spoken in awed whispers. And it's got some excellent names on its roster: JJ Abrams (Lost, Star Trek 09) and Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Cowboys and Aliens). All and all, it looks like it could be a winner. But then again, so did Terra Nova. So while I was generally impressed with the pilot, and really want to see the show do well, I think it needs to step it up a notch if it wants to last more than a Terra Novan season.

There are a number of great beat-em-ups to choose from on Xbox Live Arcade, including X-Men The Arcade Game, The Simpsons Arcade and, of course, the always favorable Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But folks out there might be seeking something a little more contemporary when it comes to beating people to a pulp, and that's where QOOC Soft's Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise comes in. The idea is still the same – beat down a bunch of thugs and be the last man standing – but it takes place inside enclosed 3D arenas, and adds some gameplay gimmicks to be a bit more diversifying. There's more satisfaction to it than we first expected, but it isn't quite the noble warrior it could've been.

Have you ever wondered who would win the fight between a giraffe and a cheetah? Or between a panda and a kangaroo?

Skyrim is a sprawling quest for anyone to undertake, packing a potential few hundreds of hours of gameplay to exhaust -- and that's not counting its previous DLC expansion, excellent as it was. It's a behemoth of a game that you approach when you've got the time and availability, because once you commit, you're in it for the long haul.

There is someone in the world, as I write these lines, who has been waiting for almost a decade to be able to download Gungrave: Overdose. He unjustifiably loves the game, and believes it would be even better if the game could be downloadable on its Playstation hard drive. Eight years have passed and the long awaited miracle has finally crossed over from hope to reality.

FreQuency and Amplitude, as far as rhythm games go, are close to perfection. While the included soundtracks weren't always slices of heaven, the track-capturing, fast-moving musical roller coaster foreshadowed the eventual success of Guitar Hero and Rock Band and a host of me-too releases whose popularity is now certainly waning.

Upon seeing the launch trailer to this game I was really expecting to play a mindlessly over-the-top, silly and lighthearted samurai action/adventure game in a similar style to the likes of Saints Row, but what you get with Way of the Samurai 4 by developer Acquire is something a lot more reminiscent of a teenage boy who can’t decide whether he wants to grow up or hold onto his immature ways.

Frenzied fighters comprise a good portion of any retro gramer's library, and for good reason: they're ridiculously fun. From Pocket Fighter to Darkstalkers, these colorful, frenetic brawlers incorporate hilariously varied and random combos, loud artwork, and fluid animations to back it all up. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is a blast from the past that follows in the footsteps of these fantastic games -- a Dreamcast/PlayStation release that followed the events of the popular manga. The cult classic is celebrating its 25th anniversary and to commemorate the event Capcom has released an HD version via PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Nostalgia can be a powerful factor when influencing our feelings one way or another toward particular releases, but is that enough to propel this bizarre adventure into greatness?
