Featured ShackReviews:

I played half an hour or so of Ubisoft's Far Cry Instincts (Xbox) this week and a mission of Backbone's Age of Empires: The Age of Kings (NDS) on the plane, that was about it.

    I've heard very bad things about Dirge of Cerebrus. :(

      I've played it and I definitely wouldn't buy it.

        I'm a FF nerd and wouldn't touch this with someone's cock.

          But you'd be willing to touch a decent game with someone's cock?

      I've heard the the final US version has a lot of significant improvements, worthy of possibly checking out.

      You know I love 90% of Square's stuff, but this'll definitely be one of the few titles from them I won't be picking up on release day.

      I don't think it's supposed to be very long, so even if things have improved, I'll stick to a rental on this one.

        That feature isn't even in the US version. Apparently significant changeds have been made to the gameplay based on complaints...maybe it'll be good?
