How does the words trade simulator make you feel? If that right there doesn't get your interest then it's time to move on because the game we're looking at here is aimed squarely at those who have an interest in this sort of thing. Gaming Minds, a group of German developers who are ex-Ascaron employees, are hoping to pull people into a rather unique gaming experience with this title. Read More.
Previews By Daniel Acaba
Much like the other Warhammer 40,000 game at E3 this year, Dark Millennium didn't have a real demo, just a really awesome trailer and Joe Madureira himself hanging around. Not just a talented artist he is also one of the men behind the formation of Vigil Studios, the guys behind the recently released Darksiders. Read More.
One of the main titles that Ubisoft has been putting a lot of its weight behind this year at E3 is Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Much was being shown of what the game would be like, with an awesome cinematic trailer playing all over and even some single player game footage being demonstrated. Read More.
There is a lot of low quality free to play games out on the market. They're all fairly simple graphically, have incredibly simple mechanics and are just on the bland side. Lately there has been a movement to make them far more action packed, giving them the feel of a third person hack and slash more than any MMORPG. Read More.
E3 this year was sorely missing a certain somebody that would be very important to Warhammer 40k fans everywhere: a representative from Relic Entertainment. In their place some really impressive Warhammer guests joined us; a big ol' Ultramarine, his World Eaters nemesis and an Ork. Read More.
Going into E3 this year there was very little information on Quantum Theory.
We now know a bit about the plot, with deals with a living black metal called Erosion that's destroying the world, and that you'd control two characters who explore a gigantic tower. Read More.
It's pretty obvious that by even coming this far into the preview those reading this already know what they're getting into but let's do a quick bit of history for the newbies. Etrian Odyssey is a throwback to the good old days of adventure gaming. You create a party of new meat, explore a dungeon (complete with making your own map using the touch screen) and get killed. Read More.
Fallout 3 was definitely a love it or hate it sort of game. Many of the fans of the original two games decried it before it even released, first for the different developer and then for the change to first person perspective. Then when the game was released many were unimpressed with the fairly loose gun mechanics and the drab environments (because the nuclear apocalypse was meant to leave the land colorful). Read More.
Having spent many hours sitting down with the THQ folks, listening to what they have to say about Smackdown vs. RAW 2010, the latest entry in their high powered series, only one thing can be said - Wow. Many times when you have game series with yearly releases no innovation occurs. Read More.
When you hear about a big game coming to the PSP you can't help but cringe a bit. Starting to think about the load times that are going to come along with a game like this is just the sort of thing to make you curse disk based media. With this in mind Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron was approached with much trepidation. Read More.
It's really not that hard to see that Bioware makes some of the greatest roleplaying games to grace gamers' shelves. With a resume that includes Baldur's Gate, Knights of the Old Republic and Neverwinter Nights the quality titles that this one compay manages to churn out are staggering. Read More.
I'm sure that plenty of you are reading this and exclaiming "Not another Dynasty Warriors based game!" Well that might be the case but this one is definitely one of the few that seems to have things right. One of the main complaints with these sorts of games is that they're somewhat repetitive. Read More.
It's kind of strange that Mario and Sonic haven't entered into some bloody brawl by now. Those two mascots have been at it for years and even with the fall of Nintendo as a console maker these two still can't properly get along. Having "friendly" competitions in Smash Bros and competing in Olympic game are keeping that rivalry going strong and it's only a matter of time before things finally explode. Read More.
When I first heard that Climax studios were once again developing a game in the Silent Hill franchise I have to admit that a part of me froze up in fear. Silent Hill: Origins isn't exactly one of my favorite games. Indeed I actually prefer Silent Hill 4: The Room to the prequel story simply based on the gameplay mechanics. Read More.
First introduced at the Tokyo Game Show Monster Racer has kind of flown beneath pretty much everyone's radars. However at this years E3 we managed to get our hands on a copy of this quirky little racing title and it definitely shows promise. It's an interesting experience, especially for a DS title, but there is plenty of promise for both young and old gamers in the title. Read More.
