Preview: Skulls of the Shogun

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2365 days, 9 hours, 23 minutes ago
Thursday, March 31, 2011 8:51:30 AM GMT
Take a small team of former AAA developers turned independent. Add two parts of tactical turn-based combat. Add one part of arcade action. Now flavor it in a cute style of generals, demons, and undead warriors who can eat the skulls of their enemies to become stronger. (more)

CES: Beyond Good and Evil HD looks real purdy

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2446 days, 7 hours, 48 minutes ago
Sunday, January 09, 2011 10:26:50 AM GMT
Last night at a CES Xbox House Party event, i got to lay eyes (and hands) on the upcoming XBLA release of Beyond Good and Evil HD. This is a port of the 2003 fan favorite, now with a lovely HD upgrade. I mean, the game was already lovely, and it would still hold up nicely today, but lots of work has been put into this upgrade, and it now looks real purdy. (more)

CES: Bejeweled Blitz Live is insanely competitive

Bejeweled is always fun, but it's a different kind of fun when you're playing it as fast as you can up against 15 other players in 1 minute matches. (more)

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 extravaplosion!

Friday, January 07, 2011 9:47:09 AM GMT
What I’m about to write will likely make you seethe with jealousy, so I apologize in advance: I’ve been playing a preview build of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for a few weeks now. Although the game is only about a month away from its February 15 release, I know how you feel. It’s been 10 years since Marvel vs. Capcom 2 -- haven’t you waited long enough? Capcom (more)

Community member perri had the opportunity to attend Korea's G-Star trade show this past weekend and made it a point to check out the demo for Rockman Online. He posted his impressions on his blog, and sad to say, they are a tad on the negative side. (more)

Hands-on: Homefront single player

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2511 days, 9 hours, 21 minutes ago
Friday, November 05, 2010 8:53:49 AM GMT
Last month, I was fortunate to be in THQ's brand new (and massive) new development studio, THQ Montreal. It's a beautiful place, with all sorts of snazzy offerings for the future Quebecois employees. However, while that's all grand and good, THQ actually had something they wanted to show off: the single player for Homefront, their upcoming first person shooter due next spring. (more)

Next summer, Marvel’s Star-Spangled Avenger, Captain America, will hit the screen once again with actor Chris Evans donning the red, white, and blue. Marvel hopes that if 20 years couldn’t erase the memory of the Cap’s straight-to-video disaster of the 1990s, (more)

The Witcher 2 impresses enough to assassinate kings

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2538 days, 9 hours, 44 minutes ago
Saturday, October 09, 2010 8:30:31 AM GMT
Miss Hollie Bennett and I grabbed the opportunity to see CD Projekt RED show off The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings the other day. The first game was a big hit with PC gamers although I always got the feeling it picked up slowly as people discovered how amazing it was. Which was probably a good thing as it initially suffered from enormous loading times and quite a few bugs that have since been fixed in multiple updates and an Enhanced Edition. Hell, they even released it for free for the people that owne... (more)

PAX 10: Force Unleashed 2 now with 33% less leash

Poor Starkiller -- he’s got serious issues. First, he’s dead. Second, he’s now a clone. Third, he’s the latest in a long line of clones who have gone insane as the memories of the original Starkiller began to flood their consciousness. Oh yeah, there’s also that whole fealty to Darth Vader thing to cope with as well. I like to call him the Forcerer’s Apprentice. (more)

Impressions: Shogun 2: Total War

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2574 days, 11 hours, 50 minutes ago
Friday, September 03, 2010 6:25:07 AM GMT
Recently Sega invited me over to its San Francisco offices to take a peek at the latest game in the Total War series: Shogun 2. As a return to the original Total War game Shogun: Total War, Shogun 2 is the latest in the real time/turn-based fusion strategy game. Sega and developer The Creative Assembly were kind enough to show me the real time battle elements of the game, with the turn-based overworld stuff saved for something I have planned next week. Fans of the franchise will certainly want to pay at... (more)

GC 10: Kinect Dashboard hands-on and XBL expansion

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2588 days, 10 hours, 9 minutes ago
Friday, August 20, 2010 8:06:08 AM GMT
We had a look at a rough version of the Kinect Dashboard today. Actually, they started the session by announcing that Xbox Live would be available in 9 new markets: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Chile, Colombia, South Africa and Greece. So if you live in any of those countries, yay for you. I asked if they were planning to expand into China, but only got the standard PR talk as a result. So, no China or funny comments. Boo for us.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2588 days, 10 hours, 9 minutes ago
Friday, August 20, 2010 8:05:14 AM GMT
On a wind swept plain stand a brother and a sister. Swords drawn ready to fight off the creatures that are heading towards them waving swords of their own. A swift blow from the brothers axe takes out one and fireball from the sister, a powerful mage, reduces another to pile of red goo. More waves of enemies arrive, the brother makes a gallant vow to keep on fighting until they are defeated. Soon, a giant troll charges into the fray and the duo battle the beast until it is defeated by a devastating spell... (more)

Final Fantasy XIV doesn't exactly have a lot to prove. It has a ton to prove, for not only does it need to make itself a true competitor to in a market of MMOs, it also needs to prove to a lot of fans that Final Fantasy, the MMO, can be done right. (more)

Hands-on: MindJack

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2594 days, 9 hours, 13 minutes ago
Saturday, August 14, 2010 9:01:19 AM GMT
The world of MindJack is an interesting one. It's the year 2031, and people have the technology, through the power of special cybernetic devices, to control daily objects with just a thought. However, it's not so simple as that, as these devices also enable players to shift between the minds of other AI controlled players. When a dastardly power hungry military organization tries to take over, what are the good agents of the world to do? Wildly jump between the minds of nearby NPC and use them to lay was... (more)

Hands-on: Sid Meier's Civilization V

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2601 days, 9 hours, 27 minutes ago
Saturday, August 07, 2010 8:47:57 AM GMT
I have fond memories of playing Civilization II on my old HP Pavilion. Part of the charm about Civilization II was that it was an incredibly deep and enjoyable game hidden beneath a relatively simple exterior. I must have spent hundreds of hours playing that game, which means a lot for someone who does not view his personal computer as much of a game machine. (more)

Impressions: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 on PlayStation Move

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2609 days, 17 hours, 20 minutes ago
Friday, July 30, 2010 12:54:57 AM GMT
At a Sony press event in New York City last week, I was able to try out PlayStation Move for the first time. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 was among the games I played, and it was immediately impressive. Here's how it works. You grasp the Move wand like a golf club, and use the face buttons to select a club. The big button in the center of the wand, simply named the "Move button," serves the function of the O button in the regular game -- it zooms the camera to the landing area of your shot. (more)

SDCC: Rush'N Attack is coming back

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2614 days, 21 hours, 9 minutes ago
Saturday, July 24, 2010 9:05:15 PM GMT
First off, an admission: I never realized that the first part of the title was word play. Rush'N = Russian. I get it now! This upcoming XBLA and PSN release is a remake of a 1980's arcade game where you'd...well, rush and attack, armed only with a knife. I met with Konami to play the latest build of the Vatra-developed game, where I knifed throats and crawled in air ducts, thinking all the while about how stupid I am to have never realized that the game's title was wordplay.

SDCC: Seriously, GoldenEye on the DS

Saturday, July 24, 2010 9:03:24 PM GMT
Yes, this is a real thing. GoldenEye on the Wii is something you've probably already heard about. We expected to see it here at an Activision preview event, but we didn't expect to see a DS game. At least not yet. It was here, though, brought by developer n-Space. It was being shown off by a personal friend who works there, so I was the first to get a look at the game. (more)
