Constant C review

Now that the new generation of consoles has launched, there seem to be less and less titles being released on the Xbox 360's Live Arcade. The service launched some of the best titles of the last generation, and to see it petering out is a little bit heartbreaking. But it's not over just yet, and the latest release is Constant C. It's a physics based puzzle/platformer, in which you control the Emergency Rescue Robot, sent to a spaceship involved in a science experiment gone wrong. It sounds pretty basic, until you start playing, at which point it reveals some rather unique gameplay mechanics. Does it do enough to warrant a revisit the previous generation though?

South Park: The Stick of Truth review

After a number of delays and a publisher change, South Park: The Stick of Truth is finally among us, but has it been worth the wait? This isn't the first South Park game by any stretch of the imagination, but none of the previous titles have really matched the success of the show, with the last full release back in 2000, and only arcade releases since then. Anyone who has ever seen the show will be familiar with the setting. A small mountain town in Colorado called South Park. You play as the newest resident who must befriend the locals, who include the majority of the show's cast, such as Stan, Kyle, and of course Cartman. Does the game live up to the ridiculously high expectations? Read on to find out the verdict...
