Geeky pop culture sometimes feels like a collection of cool stuff: "Hero" moments and "holy shit did you see that" images. And sometimes it feels like the people who update our most beloved stories want to include those moments — without doing anything to set them up properly. The premature nerdgasm is a serious…
There's a meme going around about The Wolverine that says it's not that good, but at least it's way better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the previous solo vehicle for the indestructible tough guy with the metal skeleton and claws. But sadly, it's not that much better.
Multi-national releases are a difficult process. Not only are there linguistic and cultural barriers to overcome, but very often content or simple monetary reasons can keep a game from entering one country or another. Even so, some games are desired despite their limited availability no matter where you are. That…
This is the second in a series of posts labeled "Hindsight" that discuss games you may have thought we were done writing about. Last time: Godfather II The Game. This time: X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Well... The reason is probably that no publisher thought Japanese gamers would buy it. Another is that the title's violence might have problems with the censors.
Raven Software, developers of recently released Wolfenstein and soon to be released Singluarlity, let 30 to 35 go from their Wisconsin studios, sources tell Kotaku.
There's a new Wolverine movie in theaters, which means it's time for another developer to take a stab at Marvel's stabbiest super-hero with X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Some are already calling the Wolverine video game better than the Wolverine movie. Hey, actor Hugh Jackman is impressed with the game, too.
Friday, Fahey dug up a screenshot of X-Men Origins: Wolverine's homage to Warcraft. A reader sent us a screengrab of another crossover marvel, one of two mentioned in the game's achievement list. Obligatory spoiler alert.
In a bit of marketing that could theoretically bite someone at Activision in the ass, the company is promoting X-Men Origins: Wolverine in the UK by backing giant weasel mating.
In the frozen wastes surrounding the Akali Lake Weapon X facility, Wolverine stumbles upon an artifact of untold power from another world...of Warcraft.
Developer Raven hasn't so much created levels for the game as they have crafted environments for players to romp about it. Forest environments; jungle environments; snowy forest environments - they're all represented here. It's all very interesting, until they get to the end of the clip, when senior artist Cory Carani…
According to Raven, Wolverine will be fast, furious, unleashed, and the game that everyone is pining for. It's like no Wolverine game you've ever seen. They are pushing the envelope, capturing Wolverine's essence, bringing their ideas to the table to create a synergy that allows you to be Wolverine.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not a movie game.
Activision seems to have a knack for passing their Marvel properties on to developers in love with the characters, though as was the case with Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, that doesn't always work out. As my only exposure to the new Wolverine video game so far has been this particular video and a few screenshots, I'd…
Activision's Comic-Con booth was not only filled with gaming goodness, but they also allowed fans a chance to be "in" two of their upcoming titles.
Has as good stand-alone Wolverine game finally been made? I tried out an early hands-on demo tonight of X-Men Origins: Wolverine at Activision's pre-New York Comic Con press event to find out.
Who needs screen shots when you have 3D SCREENSHOTS! X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is apparently so cool it can't fit into just two Ds, so Activision dropped this interactive screenshot on us. Super-cool 3D effect aside, this really doesn't give me much to see in the way of the game.
