  • Deadliest Warrior: The Game Review 3 CommentsPosted by on July 24, 2010 under Articles & News, Reviews
    Whenever a game comes around with “The Game” in the title, I die a little inside. They tend to be cheap cash-ins on an existing franchise, not worthy of the full retail box left unloved on your shelf after only a couple of play sessions. It’s fortunate, then, that Deadliest Warrior: The Game is not a full retail product, and perhaps even more fortunate that it is surprisingly entertainin... more.
  • Singularity Review 14 CommentsPosted by on July 22, 2010 under Articles & News, Reviews
    For those that don’t know, Singularity is the latest first person shooter from Raven Software, a company with a history of standout first person shooters. If you’ve ever played Soldier of Fortune, Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force (don’t laugh, it’s a genuinely good game), Star Wars: Jedi Knight II or Quake 4 then you’ve been enjoying the fruits of Raven Software’s labour. However, ... more.
  • Transformers: War for Cybertron Review 3 CommentsPosted by on July 4, 2010 under Articles & News, Reviews
    Firstly, it's important to dispel any ambiguity about exactly which product is being described in this Transformers: War for Cybertron review. There are versions of this game for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and DS, but they truly comprise three completely separate games in their own rights - this review is about the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 offering. War for Cybertron rests in the unenviable positi... more.
  • Dead Rising 2 Delayed 0 CommentsPosted by on June 28, 2010 under News
    Capcom is the bearer of ill tidings, as it reveals that Dead Rising 2 will be delayed, though not the reason why. The game was originally slated for release on August 31, 2010 in North America, followed quickly by a September 3 release in Europe. It now appears that the title will slip to September 28 in North America and October 1 in Europe, not a huge delay but undoubtedly enough to make Dea... more.
  • E3 2010: The Witcher 2 Improvements 1 CommentsPosted by on June 25, 2010 under E3, News
    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, to give it its full title, appears to be the dream sequel. It seeks to build on that which made the original game great, while transforming or outright cutting out its predecessor's (admittedly often troubling) imperfections. Where the Witcher was often technically unstable (both in terms of framerate and sometimes bizarre bugs), the E3 demo of the sequel, e... more.
  • E3 2010: Kevin Butler, VP of Stealing the Show 0 CommentsPosted by on June 19, 2010 under E3, News
    Kevin Butler's epic speech at Sony's E3 2010 press conference is by now the stuff of internet legend, and you can experience it for yourself above. For those that don't know, Kevin Butler is not actually a Sony executive, he is a fictional character played by the actor Jerry Lambert. He has so far held a number of titles within Sony, including VP of First Person Shooter Relations, Epic Footage... more.
  • New Xbox 360 Beats Red Ring of Death… Sort of 1 CommentsPosted by on under News
    As it turns out, the new model of Xbox 360 will never suffer the red ring of death... but it's not quite as impressive as it sounds. Microsoft is not making any promises about the new 360's infallibility, rather they have just removed the ability to display the dreaded RROD at all - the ring of light no longer displays red. Instead, the power symbol in the centre will now turn red if there is ... more.
  • E3 2010: Medal of Honor Multiplayer Details 3 CommentsPosted by on June 17, 2010 under E3, News
    Watching the above trailer, once you learn to live with the music not being attached to footage of giant transforming robots, you might come to the conclusion that you are seeing some sort of love child of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. You would not be far wrong. Of course, it is now commonly known that DICE, creators of Battlefield, are developing the Medal o... more.
  • E3 2010: Dead Rising 2 – Case Zero Trailer 0 CommentsPosted by on under E3, News
    Until the latter stages of it, you would be forgiven for being sceptical that this is even a Dead Rising 2: Case Zero trailer. Everything we've seen so far of Dead Rising 2 has been more in the "motorbikes with attached chainsaws" vein of storytelling, so the fact that the prologue to it actually appears to have a compelling narrative is quite a shock. For those that don't know, Case Zero is ... more.
  • E3 2010: Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Trailer Explained 0 CommentsPosted by on June 16, 2010 under E3, News
    The trailer above kicked off the debut showing of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit with a bang, demonstrating the new vision Criterion Games has for the franchise. Ever since I heard that Criterion was developing the next Need for Speed, I've been excited, as I'm a big fan of their Burnout series. When the game was first shown at EA's E3 2010 press conference, I was delighted to see the concepts on... more.
  • E3 2010: Gears of War 3 Beast Mode Details 0 CommentsPosted by on under E3, News
    IGN brings us the above footage of Gears of War 3's Beast Mode, the details of which are emerging from E3 2010. If you've played Gears of War 2, you've probably indulged in anywhere between one and a few thousand hours of Horde mode, depending upon personal preference. You might think of Beast mode as being Horde mode, but the shoe is on the other foot - you are not a group of COGs surviving w... more.
  • E3 2010: PlayStation Move “Shooting Attachment” 8 CommentsPosted by on under E3, News
    Sony has revealed the PlayStation Move "Shooting Attachment" at E3 2010. Perhaps they wanted to avoid calling it a gun, or maybe they were just straying from the "light gun" tag, as that's not technically what it is. Nevertheless, it's a gun accessory for the PS3, and as you can see, the Move wand controller attaches into it, giving over its trigger control to the actual trigger on the gun. Th... more.
  • E3 2010: GoldenEye a Remake, Not a Clone 0 CommentsPosted by on under E3, News
    For those of you that have been dreaming of a perfect clone of the N64 classic GoldenEye 007 for the Wii, I'm afraid you may be disappointed. For the rest of us, this might actually be good news, of a sort. Apparently the remake is trying to tread a fine line between keeping enough references and inspiration from the original to appeal to those fans and retain the "magic" that made it one of t... more.
  • E3 2010: Portal 2 Co-op Details 0 CommentsPosted by on under E3, News
    Details of Portal 2's co-op mode are beginning to emerge from E3 2010 now. While the exact context of the cooperative story is still not clear, what is now known is that you do not play as humans - one of you will be one of the Aperture Science automated turrets, and the other is a "personality sphere".  GlaDOS, the somewhat demented AI villain and only real "character" of the first game (not... more.
