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.

Sheppard's Video Game Pie - Eufloria

In "Eufloria," you play as seedlings and growing trees on asteroids. After playing it on PS3 and PC, I was excited to see it out on iPad, because it gave me an excuse to write about it.

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.
