The Curse of Nordic Cove Lets You Smack Viking Ghosts With Golf Clubs

Okay, so The Curse of Nordic Cove kind of looks like a rejected Nintendo 64 game. And the hit detection seems a little off. But hey, at least this golf-simulator-slash-action-adventure title thinks outside the box. I saw it on the PAX East show floor last weekend and thought it was so bizarre, I had to tape it. » 4/11/12 1:30pm 4/11/12 1:30pm

This Homemade Hidden Blade From Assassin's Creed Looks Really Dangerous

I found this guy on the show floor at PAX East, dressed up like Altair from Assassin's Creed and boasting his very own homemade hidden blade. I shot this video of the weapon in action, then ran away as quickly as possible. You never know at these conference things. » 4/10/12 6:30pm 4/10/12 6:30pm

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Has A Horde Mode, Too

Developer/publisher Ubisoft didn't show off much of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier at PAX East.

In a panel at PAX East, Gearbox Software just revealed that Borderlands 2 will add a new class—the "Mechromancer" sometime after the game releases this October.

Skimpy Outfit Gets Lollipop Chainsaw Cosplayer Asked to Change Or Leave…

Word is that Jessica Nigri, a big-time cosplayer hired to portray the protagonist of Lollipop Chainsaw, was asked to leave the PAX East show floor yesterday. Why, you ask? Oh, I don't know. Maybe that hot pink jumpsuit with a "neckline" plunging to her crotch has something to do with it. » 4/08/12 2:00pm 4/08/12 2:00pm

Aliens: Colonial Marines Multiplayer is Adrenaline-Pumpingly Good

If there's one thing you can say to me to make a first-person shooter experience sound more exciting, it's that it's not a modern military shooter. In the case of Aliens: Colonial Marines—releasing this Fall for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC—that involves having different classes of aliens with acid-burning blood… » 4/07/12 7:00pm 4/07/12 7:00pm

Far Cry 3's Multiplayer Mode Fails To Impress

Far Cry 3 is a game I'm very much looking forward to. But a few 10-minute multiplayer bursts from publisher Ubisoft's upcoming open-world first-person shooter didn't inspire the same feelings. » 4/07/12 4:30pm 4/07/12 4:30pm

This is Super Time Force by Capybara Games, and while retro-graphics platformers and rewind-time mechanics are not new concepts, what the studio is doing here with both looks new and cool as all hell to me. » 4/07/12 3:00pm 4/07/12 3:00pm

Rock Band Blitz is Harmonix's next effort to revive rhythm games, a creation that uses a standard console controller rather than specialized music peripherals. At PAX East 2012, the team showed off video of the game in action and explained a little more of its genesis. » 4/07/12 1:00pm 4/07/12 1:00pm

Crimson Dragon is Basically Panzer Dragoon Minus a Letter or So

Shown off at PAX East 2012, this is Crimson Dragon and if it reminds you of a Kinect-based Panzer Dragoon, there's good reason. Not only is Land Ho, which handled the PS2 version of that game, working on this one, Panzer Dragoon's creator, Yukio Futatsugi also is involved. » 4/07/12 12:00pm 4/07/12 12:00pm
