Excerpt: The Imoon of Savage Moon are filled with two very different things, valuable resources and Insectocytes. Mankind have set up shop on these living asteroids with the purpose of excavating as much of the former as possible, but have unearthed more of the latter. Despite being a horde of hideous alien bugs, the Insectocytes are just doing their job. After all, it is you who are the intruder, the pest, and they really just want you off their rock.
Conclusion: For a while, Savage Moon is wildly successful in its goals; it creates a fun and attractive looking niche title, and then it flourishes in the crucial, brain wrecking essentiality of a highly stressful but ultimately satisfying genre. Sure, it's easy to break, could get old quickly, and is certainly not for everyone - but a title like this is effectively for fans anyway, right?
Conclusion: While not nearly as addictive as PixelJunk Monsters, FluffyLogic has done a hell of a time making a tower defense game that is uniquely their own. If you've still got the itch to repel waves of enemies, don't hesitate to jump on this one. It's good stuff.
Excerpt: Savage Moon is a downloadable Tower Defence game available on the Playstation Network, and is the first foray into console gaming for its developer, FluffyLogic. Savage Moon entrusts the player with the task of defending a mining base on a living asteroid, called an Imoon. Imoons are heavy in various vital minerals long depleted back on Earth. However, they have a natural defence system in the form alien entities known as Insectocytes.
Excerpt: While the graphics in Savage Moon are the expected "top-down" look found in most "Tower Defense" games, the camera view can be adjusted using the lower shoulder buttons and the analog sticks. You can get close-in to the action, if you like, or you can zoom far back to get a better view of the action across the battlefield. Top-down overhead view is the default view in Savage Moon , but this view is fully adjustable.
Excerpt: If you've played another game available on the PlayStationNetwork titled Pixel Junk Monsters then you'll know about 90% of all there is to know about Savage Moon. Replace the cute monster invaders with bug-like aliens and the village filled with cute critters with a lunar mining operation and you've basically got Savage Moon. So if you're a Pixel Junk Monsters player who can't get enough of the tower defense strategy gameplay, you'll probably love Savage Moon. If...
Excerpt: This review will encompass three versions of EAs latest NHL game, creatively titled NHL 08. Having played through three versions of the title it�s safe to say that the PS3 and 360 version of the title are near identical, so no comments will be made with regards to this except for my comments on which controller I felt played best.
Excerpt: For as long as I can remember, if there's one sport that's always translated well into a videogame, it's been hockey. NHL games from EA's NHL series, to Sony's FaceOff, down to 2K's NHL 2K franchise, have always been solid titles. I've been playing NHL 2K8 for sometime now, and unlike some of 2K's other sports efforts recently (MLB and All Pro Football), I've found myself far more impressed with NHL 2K8 than I'd imagine I would be.
