Previews By Andrew Sztein
The first hour of God of War: Ascension provided some memorable moments, some tightly polished level design, and classic God of War gameplay in an exquisitely presented package. Read More.
We’ll withhold final judgement on the game until its release later this month on March 19, exclusively for the Xbox 360. Until then though, it’s a pretty safe bet that Gears fans have lots to look forward to with this instalment of the insanely popular shooter franchise. Read More.
All indicators point to BioShock Infinite continuing to cement BioShock’s legacy as one of the premier franchises of this gaming generation. Find out for sure when BioShock Infinite is released world wide on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on March 26, 2013. Read More.
Konami set a high standard for the title with the preview build that they graciously let us check out. We’ll know for sure if the full game lives up to its very high promise when its officially released on March 5, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. Read More.
Every E3 I've personally been to in the last five years has at least one surprise title that completely takes my breath away, punches me in the gut, and leaves me salivating for more. Some years my excitement yields a hidden gem like Singularity, other years I overrate something like Brothers in Arms. Read More.
While the superhero genre has really come into its own as mainstream entertainment the past few years, video games haven't really kept up with movies in terms of overall greatness. Video games can boast the Batman: Arkham series... and... ummm... Mortal Kombat vs. Read More.
One thing that you don't expect to hear when you pick up a Forza game is that this fairly hardcore racing sim is taking cues from the arcade racer series, Burnout. But it's fairly hard to deny the fact that Forza Horizon seems very similar to Burnout: Paradise. Read More.
If you're a hockey fan like me, the hyperbole being spouted forth by EA Sports' marketing team is absolutely deafening. While the company is fully committing to an all out marketing blitz like allowing the fans to vote for the cover athlete and claiming that the new additions to this years' game is the "gamechanger" we've all been hoping for, the developers have been quietly and surely making some very impressive improvements to their premier hockey simulation.

It takes a lot for me to get excited over a real time strategy game. As a lapsed fan of the genre who hasn't played one since the original Starcraft, I tended to find the genre more frustrating than fun, especially when playing Blizzard's takes on the genre that dealt more with resource hounding and unit building than any significant and realistic military tactics.

New guns, new modes, better storytelling, this is truly Halo reborn

After playing through Assassin's Creed II, many gamers were taken aback when it was announced that the next Assassin's Creed title would feature multiplayer. Many were worried that Brotherhood's multiplayer would be a worthless tacked on feature to create another bullet point on the box. Read More.
In retrospect, it was truly a recipe for disaster. Hosting a gaming event (in this case X'11) on one of the hottest days of the year, fill it with nerds both in and out of shape, and fill the halls with the next wave of motion controlled titles for Microsoft's controllerless Kinect sensor.

One of the first things that Gearbox president Randy Pitchford said to me and the crowd at Sega's booth before the impressive demo of Aliens: Colonial Marines at E3 rang very true. "Myself and a lot of other game developers have been ripping off Aliens our whole careers," he said. Read More.
Okay, so Formula One isn't the most popular sport in the world here in Canada, but elsewhere in the world, Formula One reigns supreme. This much is apparent from the last title's 84 Metacritic score (the same as the mighty Gran Turismo 5) and the fact that it held the number one worldwide sales spot above the platinum selling Halo Reach.
