    Resident Evil 3 joins its forbearer as another top notch remake. I’m happy to see what Capcom has been doing with the series and wonder where they’ll take it next.

    Zombie Army 4 reminds me of a PS2 game in the best possible way. When games like this were abundant and made for epic weekend rentals. If you’re looking for a great co-op zombie shooter to play until Valve releases Left 4 Dead 3 in a thousand years, I would definitely recommend this.

    While by no means a bad game, 198X is a bit like ordering a pie and finding out it has no filling.

    In contrast to its source material, Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory is a bland RPG that is as slow as it is forgettable.
