Sheppard’s Video Game Pie

  • Prototype 2

    This game offends me.

  • The Playstation Vita

    Lots of people don’t have to get a Vita. Should they?

  • Journey

    Journey is destined to be a classic video game, I think, but I found it more confused than anything.

  • Sheppard's Video Game Pie - Legend of Grimrock

    It's an excellent old-school dungeon bash, based on a sort of game that used to be big but isn't really made anymore.

  • Sheppard's Video Game Pie - Mass Effect 3

    'Mass Effect 3' is pretty good. By that I mean 'Mass Effect 3' is astonishingly excellent, except for one bit that's controversial and unsatisfying for many.

  • Star Wars: The Old Republic

    For those unaware, this is the new Star Wars MMORPG. It’s Electronic Arts’ attempt at competing with World of Warcraft, a game I never got into but that everyone else on the planet seems to play.

  • Katawa Shoujo

    The name of this game translates to "Disability Girls," though that's inaccurate--the word "katawa" in this context is an unprintable epithet for the disabled, connoting worthlessness.

  • Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

    "Revelations" is a decrepit continuation of a once-captivating franchise, which is appropriate given that it's about the aging of its two protagonists, Ezio and Altaïr.

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" is the conclusion to the trilogy of first person war shooters, and possesses neither the faults nor any of the virtues of the two games that came before it.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

    My long perspective on the Zelda series is this: There are hits and there are misses, and just because the latest installment is the latest doesn't mean it's the best one yet.

  • Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

    For those unaware, "Uncharted" is Sony's flagship PS3 franchise about treasure hunter Nathan Drake. It's about as close to watching a Hollywood blockbuster as a video game can be.

  • Saints Row: The Third

    "Saints Row: The Third" could be described as "Grand Theft Auto" with all the bullshit replaced by awesome. Or, alternately, "Grand Theft Auto" as envisioned by concerned parent groups.
