Can you blame Nilin, the protagonist of Capcom's 2013-slated Remember Me? Look at all the crap she has to deal with, from guards chasing her down to helicopters incessantly shooting at her as she scales the sides of buildings. She's annoyed, and for good reason.
Pretend (?) you run a gaming company. If you could bring the biggest mobile game there is purchasable in stores, would you do it? If you're the largest game publisher in the world, then it's not such a tough question. Surprise surprise, Activision is publishing Rovio's Angry Birds for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and…
What if a game let you go inside of the heads of characters and manipulate their memories? A year ago a small Paris-based studio called Dontnod revealed a game called Adrift that let you do just that. Adrift separated itself with the pack with the concept of manipulating, stealing, and even creating memories as a…
A little while ago at QuakeCon, Tim Poon had a go at a new level in Bethesda's much-anticipated sneaking/killing game Dishonored. Back from Gamescom. the fine folks at VG 24/7 have posted this video in which Dishonored co-creative director Raf Colantonio walks players through that level, in which they must identify…
Army of Two is a polarizing franchise. It had the one thing the original developer EA Montreal set out to create: exceptional cooperative gameplay. Everything else, with the exception of the over-the-top bromance comedy between the two private military contractors, fell to the wayside. Now with Dead Space developer…
The same week EA pulls links to weapon and gear manufacturers from its Medal of Honor: Warfighter website, the arms crafters (ArmsCrafters - ready in about an hour) of Borderlands 2 get not one but three separate full-blown video ads. Some days it just doesn't pay to be real.
Still aching to scratch that FPS itch at school, work, on the bus, or anywhere that isn't home? And not with virtual controls? Sony's handheld Vita, with its twin analog sticks, should have been the device to scratch that itch. Sadly, though, the handheld has been light on first person shooters even after six months…
This video preview of the newest add-on to Blizzard's mega-successful MMO premiered today at Gamescom. Enjoy the pandas! And the mists!
Square Enix's new/remade MMORG, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn was shown at Gamescom 2012 in Germany yesterday. During the stage event, producer/director Naoki Yoshida stood on stage to show what has been developed so far.
For years now, Team Ninja has been talking up the breast physics in its Dead or Alive fighting games. And now that DOA5 is coming out, Team Ninja is...talking up breast physics.
Here's some gameplay footage of the relaunched Final Fantasy XIV. The presentation shows off some of the game's drag and drop inventory system as well as jumping. Yes, jumping!
Call of Duty be damned, there's only one game involving army men that I'm interested in this year, and that's Bohemia Interactive's upcoming ArmA III.
Castle Crashers, the awesome side-scrolling brawler that's a lot older than most of us probably realise, is getting a third lease on life with the announcement of a PC port.
"Is that a banana-gun in your hand, or are you just happy to see me?"
Man, I'm starting to think that Far Cry 3 is more of a "Big Cat Hunter" game than the action game that Ubisoft is describing it as. How else to describe the fact that the best screenshots from the game all feature giant jungle cats doing rad stuff?
There's only one way a meal between the boisterous Brad Wong and boyish Eliot in Tecmo Koei's Dead or Alive 5 can possibly end. Or they could fight I guess. That works too.
Revenge may be the popular thing these days, but some games actually aren't about taking vengeance. At least, they don't have to be, and at Gamescom this year several developers are making that abundantly clear. Straight out of Sony WWS Japan Studio is Soul Sacrifice, the first game from Keiji Inafune, the prolific…
Though The Secret World has gotten off to a stumbling start, Funcom continues to aggressively roll out fresh new content, like the August 28 release of Issue 2: Digging Deeper and the promised New York City raid, which in the next few months will give the city a real reason to never sleep.
In a live demonstration streamed direct from Gamescom in Germany earlier today, Activision and Treyarch showed off Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's exciting new multiplayer broadcasting tools. Finally a way for an unskilled loudmouth like me to enjoy Call of Duty!
