There Will Be Games

Yep, I'm totally Game Zing y'all on this German-only import it's a game based on the Godfather. Totally Euro, totally great. Review is at, of course.

I've also commandeered the front page of the site once again and I've got a ton of video games writing there. There's an "A" review of Super Street Fighter IV 3D and Samurai Warriors: Chronicles for the new 3DS platform as well as a review of a surpisingly good XBLA title, The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile. Coming soon are reviews for Ridge Racer 3D, Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars (really good, BTW), and Red Faction: Battleground. That last one is like a jumped-up Combat. Blech.

Sometime in the early 1980s, MichaelBarnes’ parents thought it would be a good idea to buy him a board game to keep him busy with some friends during one of those high-pressure, “free” timeshare vacations. It turned out to be a terrible idea, because the game was TSR’s Dungeon! - and the rest, as they say, is history. Michael has been involved with writing professionally about games since 2002, when he busked for store credit writing for Boulder Games’ newsletter. He has written for a number of international hobby gaming periodicals and popular Web sites. From 2004-2008, he was the co-owner of Atlanta Game Factory, a brick-and-mortar retail store. He is currently the co-founder of and as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Miniature Market’s Review Corner feature. He is married with two childen and when he’s not playing some kind of game he enjoys stockpiling trivial information about music, comics and film.
