Senior Editor

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

          The review will be longer than the actual game ;)

          I'm expecting a hot 5 out of 10. Give us a little teaser, are you enjoying it so far?

            I wish I could, but Sony's NDA is pretty tight. I can't even share an in-game screenshot until the embargo lifts! :(

              Embargos are stupid. But so are preorders so it balances out.

        Wait, is that already coming out? The previews were totally reaming it.

      Avoiding the Qbert, unless Shack decides to give it a review this time around. PC version had too many glitches.

      Kirby pre-ordered. Although I'm worried about the framerate.
