Hey everybody, my name is Ben Goertz and I am the newest blogger on the Gamers Unite! blog for the Colorado School of Mines’ Oredigger newspaper. Robby and I are roommates at Mines Park and we had the brilliant idea of having myself join the staff and write some of my gaming opinions. As you may have [...]

Gears of War 2

As you probably all know by now, I love the Xbox 360. Hence, it was only a matter of time before I would do a Gears of War 2 review. Remember, I’ve only rated arcade games before. I expect a lot less out of them. Also, this review will have spoilers for the ending. GoW2 [...]

Call of Duty: World At War

I’ve been watching Gametrailers TV recently, and they did a special on Call of Duty: World at War. Following the success of Call of Duty 4, World at War carries many similar traits (such as the online experience system). For those of you who haven’t played CoD4 before, every kill and accomplishment you complete gives [...]

I am a huge fan of Xbox Live Arcade. These games are perfect for those days when you don’t have enough time to play a big game but still want to play something. This week, I’m reviewing Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 (or squared, if you want to get technical). GW2 is an addictive overhead [...]

Well, seeing as I can’t seem to get MechAssault 2 out of my classic Xbox, I think this would be a good time to rant about hardware failures in gaming systems. We’ve all had some kind of problem. From a cracked disk to the red ring of death, you know you’re screwed when the hardware [...]

Sonic The Hedgehog

I am a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog. The series has made quite a few breakthroughs in gaming; yet, has really gone downhill the last few years. Today, I am going to analyze what went wrong and how they can correct their course. The first 2D Sonic games were amazing. Before this, nobody even [...]

Castle Crashers

For this entry, I’m going to review a game that I’ve been playing for awhile: Castle Crashers. The second title from Newgrounds to be on Xbox Live Arcade, Castle Crashers pays homage to the old button mashers of the 80s and the 90s. The premise of the game is to rescue princesses that have been [...]

Hey There

Hello, I’m Robby Gill. You may remember me from the Liberal Blog on this site. I have decided to give up writing that in return for one of my passions: video games. I think the Angry Video Game Nerd summed up my childhood well in this Dick Tracy episode: I was the kid who was [...]
