Hands-on preview: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2032 days, 6 hours, 11 minutes ago
Friday, April 27, 2012 7:54:39 AM GMT
The rumors were true, and now that I've played it, I'm glad. Sony has been working on a mashup fighting game that pits many of their first-party characters against each other in a Smash Bros. style four-player match. This brawler was shown off for the first time earlier this week at a PlayStation press event, where I got to mash buttons playing as Kratos, Parappa the Rapper, Sly Cooper and others. They call it PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and it's going to be a pretty big deal. (more)

Preview: Our first look at Crysis 3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2034 days, 7 hours, 13 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 25, 2012 6:52:14 AM GMT
Crysis 3 has been in development for the last 14 months and is set to be "one of the most ambitious games that Crytek has ever done," according to Crytek's Director of Creative Development, Rasmus Hoejengaard. He went on to even describe the latest entry as "the pinnacle of the Crysis franchise." (more)

Preview: Dragon's Dogma is gooooood

Monday, April 23, 2012 7:24:02 AM GMT
They had me at open-world where you'll travel to kingdoms as the fated one to slay the dragon and save the world. I love that sh*t, even if I've just played a few games that sounded much like that recently. But it makes sense that another Western-style RPG is being attempted, especially after the wild success of games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Kingdoms of Amalur, and The Witcher 2. There's still a bit of room left for more in this genre space, especially when new, standout ideas are involved. (more)

Preview: Quashing the Rebellion in a Sinful Solar Empire

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2040 days, 5 hours, 50 minutes ago
Thursday, April 19, 2012 8:14:57 AM GMT
Rebellion is a standalone expansion to the 2008 strategy game of the year, Sins of a Solar Empire. Elaborating upon the bare-bones story from the first title and subsequent DLC, adding two new classes of ships, three new factions, bumping up the quality of the textures, and adding more gameplay modes, win conditions, and planet types, Rebellion is basically a whole new game.

Preview: Trials Evolution will ruin my life

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2043 days, 6 hours, 35 minutes ago
Monday, April 16, 2012 7:29:58 AM GMT
Trials HD caught me completely by surprise. It released during Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotion in 2009, and it took a distant third place among those games as far as my hype level goes. In fact, were it not for constant recommendations from our own Jordan Devore, I probably would have obtained only 'Splosion Man and Shadow Complex, without even giving a second thought to Trials HD.

With Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, the PlayStation Vita proved itself as an ideal portable platform for fighting game ports. Capcom is back again with another portable fighter, Street Fighter X Tekken, set to release later this year. At a press conference last week, Yoshinori Ono and game producer Tomoaki Ayano gave us a rundown of SFxT's new features (more)

Game director and franchise creator Kenji Oguro says that Lost Planet 3 is the closest they have come to his original vision for the series. This sequel returns to the harsh, extreme conditions of the first game, but now puts a heavy focus on narrative and storytelling. (more)

Hands-on Preview: DmC: Devil May Cry

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2048 days, 8 hours, 35 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 11, 2012 5:30:39 AM GMT
What Capcom and Ninja Theory are trying to do with DmC: Devil May Cry is bring in some new flavor while being respectful of the attitude and style of the orginal Devil May Cry games. Their goal with this new game is to take that spirit forward, redefining Dante and his world, breaking just as much new ground as the original titles did, but in a new way. This meant giving the series hero a new voice and attitude, and a new look to match. We were told that they approached DmC thinking about what one of the... (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2048 days, 8 hours, 36 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 11, 2012 5:29:38 AM GMT
One of the goals with Resident Evil 6 was to put the scares back in, bringing back some of the tension and drama that the older games featured. While Resident Evil 5 was a solid title, it was surprisingly light in the scares department for a survival horror, and many series fans said that they missed the zombies the series had been known for.

Ahoy matey! This here be a videogame about pirates, ARRR! OK, I promise I won't any more pirate jokes, but it's going to be difficult. Risen 2: Dark Waters brings the well-crafted role-playing of Risen into a Caribbean world filled with swashbucklers, voodoo, pistols, parrots, and silly monkeys. (more)

Preview: Darksiders II is inspired by the best there is

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2063 days, 5 hours, 19 minutes ago
Tuesday, March 27, 2012 8:46:32 AM GMT
Though I never brought myself to complete the first Darksiders, I did enjoy it for the length that I played. It was nothing phenomenal in its own right, but it was still a fun experience, due to retaining enough good inspiration from other venerated titles. The sequel, Darksiders II, is not much different, in the sense that it borrows directly from other franchises that have set several standards within DSII's respective genres. (more)

From the unexpected original to the inevitable sequel, Mickey Mouse and veteran game designer Warren Spector are on a strange ride together. With characters breaking into song for musical segments, full voice acting, split-screen co-op, and one of the most ambitious camera systems in recent memory, Epic Mickey is going to get a bit stranger this fall in Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.

"Aaaargh!" is an exclamation often associated with pre-order and "day one" bonus downloadable content. You end up with an extra character, skin, or a weapon or two, often followed by Internet outcry when some of that content appears to be on the disc. (more)

The seas surrounding the Arctic Circle are cold, choppy and not particularly welcoming towards us humans. At least not in 2030, where they have become warzones. Naval War: Arctic Circle is a speculative fiction naval strategy game and I'm terrible at it. (more)

Datura is one of those games that compels you to share your in-game experience with friends as if you're telling a grand story about some meaningful feat you accomplished. For me personally, it tends to be exploration-centric games like Fallout: New Vegas that evoke such a response (more)

The MMO space has been steadily filling up since people realized just how much money Blizzard is actually making. Many have tried to break into that space, but most have failed. Funcom has a pretty consistent history of bringing solid titles to market -- nothing necessarily groundbreaking, but they work. (more)
