‘Brutal Legend,’ ‘South Park’ reviewed

Happy Rocktober 13th! I can’t remember the last time two AAA games released on the same day, which is exactly what we have today with “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves” and “Brutal Legend.”

I reviewed “Uncharted 2” last week and today I’ve posted my thoughts on “Brutal Legend,” which you can read at the Video Games section of  Wow, it’s a great time to be a gamer.

First, head over to the Video Games section of to uncover my review of Nathan Drake’s latest adventure, “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.” Simply put, this is one of the most fun games I’ve played on my PS3. I can’t wait until more people hop online — the multiplayer modes are a blast.

And finally, my review copy of “Brutal Legend” arrived earlier this week and I’m about halfway through the single-player campaign. Reviews are embargoed until Tuesday, but let me say this — WOW! I’m having a ton of fun right now just exploring and tackling side missions. This one is definitely living up to the hype. 

I’ve posted reviews of “Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2” and “Bass Pro Shops: The Strike” at the Video Games section of “Ultimate Alliance 2” is more of the same hotness that was found in “M:UA” only now with 100% more Deadpool. And “The Strike” is hands down the best fishing game I’ve ever played. It comes packaged with a motion-sensing fishing rod controller that may be one of the most ingenious peripherals ever created. Yeah, it’s a fishing game. But if you like fishing, it’s a must own.
