When the original Crysis was released it was known for its amazing graphics and ability to make your computer get on its knees and beg for mercy. PC fans will be happy to know that should you choose, you can still make your computer ask you why you hate it, but this time around you will also have the chance to play Crysis 2 on your 360 or PS3.

Day one, E3 2010. Doors just opened and our first appointment of the day was with SEGA. We're asked "Is there anything specific you'd like to see?", we responded "Show us what you got!". And show us they did. By the end of day one several people were already saying Vanquish deserved to be nominated for several awards. Read More.
Dear Rock Band: the hours you've taken from young children, teaching them to play plastic instruments instead of real ones is probably wrong is some way. Think of how many awesome new punk or emo bands there could be if not for the lure of video game bands. You really should do something about that, you know, maybe try and teach gamers how they could apply what they've learnt from your games to real life. Read More.
At Activision's E3 room they had several private, behind closed doors rooms showing off games like Call of Duty: Black Ops and True Crimes: Hong Kong. But out in the open, for anyone that stopped by was two TVs showing off Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. I will admit at first I wasn't sure if I was going to spend some of my allotted time to cover the game, instead of checking out one of Activion's other offerings. Read More.
Ladies and gentleman, it's nearing time for the next Call of Duty to be released and this time around you're neither playing in the present nor in the distant past. You're somewhere in the middle this time, playing as a black ops member during the late 1960's during the Cold war. Read More.
One of the more pleasant surprises of E3 2010 was the announcement of Portal 2. Being huge fans of the original game, we were thrilled to get a 15 minute demo of the game at Valve's booth. While the game missed out some of our prestigious awards for the show that doesn't mean you should be dissuaded from the hype. Read More.
Bungie is closing in on the finishing line for their input on the Halo series. What they started years ago on the original Xbox is about to wrap up with a prequel which although they weren't stating, they did seem rather unwilling to dismiss the notion that Reach might somehow wrap up the events of Halo 3 (Master Chief just drifting in space alone). Read More.
In an unprecedented move, Nintendo has decided to release a new Zelda game exclusively for the PS3. Wait a second, let me check that... Silicon Studio, that's not how you spell Nintendo. Read More.
You know that expression, "don't fix what isn't broken"? Well that seems to apply to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, or at least the limited beta we had a chance to get our hands on. Instead of reinventing the series, it seems that DICE has taken the solid base that was established with the first Bad Company and improved on what was lacking. Read More.
Tony Hawk Ride is the newest foray into the skateboarding genre and attempts to do something new by introducing a skateboard peripheral. The skateboard replica that has been created for this game looks very similar to the real thing, minus the wheels. The board senses your movement and actions through the use of 4 sensors located on each side of the board. Read More.
At X'09 Infinity Ward was showing of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 behind closed doors. Although nothing new of the campaign was being shown the demo from E3 was playable and looking better than ever. Refinements have been made to the visuals and the graphics were looking fantastic. Read More.
I Heart Geeks is a soon to be released puzzle game for the DS that takes full advantage of the platform's unique touch screen. This game will remind older gamers of the early 90's game 'The Incredible Machine'. Although this game seems to be geared towards younger children with its cartoon graphics and geeks vs. Read More.
