So far, Injustice looks like it's primed to be the best superhero centric fighting game since Marvel vs. Capcom 2. We'll know for sure when these Gods are officially among us when the game releases on April 16, 2013 for the Xbox 360, WiiU, and PlayStation 3. Read More.
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.
The easiest thing to judge is that the God of War: Ascension multiplayer looks, sounds, and plays beautifully. There is no perceivable lag, even on my relatively crappy internet connection, which is especially amazing seeing as betas usually data mine every second of gameplay. If the rest of the game delivers at this level, it’ll be a great product. 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.
Dark looks to bring vampires back to the video game market in a very stylish way, almost like a graphic novel brought to life. Read More.
People talk about The American Dream all the time. It is the belief that even if you come from nothing, if you work hard and dedicate yourself to the goal you can become rich and powerful and be a big shot in the world. In the 1920s, many immigrants followed this dream, but the way to it was paved with booze, illegal acts, a pension for violence and the ability to keep your mouth shut. Read More.
Yes indeed the Giant Chicken is back in this rowdy video game nod to Family Guy. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when walking into the demo for this one, but I was incredibly blown away by how hilariously fun this game was. In it, Stewie is being chased by his half-brother Bertram throughout the multiverses (apparently because Stewie has killed Bertram and now a multiverse version of Bertram is trying to stop him). Read More.
Klei Entertainment, the same company that created Shank and Eets has come up with another challenging game within the traditional 2D format. One of Mark of the Ninja's first appearances was in the form of a text based adventure to introduce the basic premise of the game. Read More.
ZombiU is a planned Wii U exclusive from Ubisoft; an entry into the library of Nintendo's newest console. It's a pretty good indicator of the capabilities of the Wii U controller and was very interesting and fairly intuitive to play on. Read More.
Super Mario fans will be happy to hear that a new title will be released exclusively for the 3DS. Nintendo's New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the 3DS promises to have more of the fun you'd expect from the ever-popular franchise, while honouring their previous titles in not so subtle ways. Read More.
Out of the entirety of E3, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit came as perhaps my own personal most surprising title of the show. In it, you play a prince of hell who's been caught with naughty pictures of his rubber ducky in the bathtub. Not entirely sure what he's been doing with said ducky, but the pictures, once posted online, are bad enough to hurt his reputation. 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.
One of the great things about E3 is the chance to find a great game that you might have otherwise missed. Developer Giant Sparrow has developed The Unfinished Swan, a first-person painting game made exclusively for the PlayStation 3, that challenges you to explore your surroundings in an unusual way.
