For the past year the Kinect has been a haven for party games and exercise titles. Our favorite funny folks from Twisted Pixel, however, have decided to go against the grain, delivering the sort of video game title we've been craving for since the peripheral made its debut a couple years back. Does The Gunstringer stand toe-to-toe with some of the other vengeance-influenced mayhem in the gaming world, or is it a couple bullets short of a six-shooter?
Ugly Americans is one of the funniest cartoons to come out stateside, thanks in part to its inventive characters, humorous storylines and one-liners. When word got out that there would be a video game tie-in called Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon coming out for the PSN and Xbox Live Arcade I got genuinely excited. Alas, my excitement died down quickly when I started playing it.
Saying the hype for Dead Island was big is a great understatement. Gamers and developers rushed like moths to the lantern to see the most-talked about video game trailer in recent memory, greatly anticipating the sort of zombie title we've been craving for years. After months of waiting we have finally arrived at our Dead Island destination. Is this the Left 4 Dead meets Dead Rising title we've been craving, or is it something a lot more?
