I have no authority to review video games

Luckily, this is the internet, so authority is not needed. However, having played a number of scrolling video games in my youth (think Super Mario, or Chip and Dale’s Rescue Rangers), and having tried my hand at battle games like Street Fighter in my college years, I feel some qualification to review Shank, as it is basically a combination of those two styles. Throw in some cool Venture Bros./Samurai Jack style animation and a story about luchadore revenge and I’m pretty hooked. It looked awesome on the big screen, as well. For what it’s worth, JT, who has quite a bit more experience with the newfangled game system gaming, liked it quite a bit. Old timers like me, look into it.

Machete comes out Friday! It’s my birthday!
