Review: FEZ

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1983 days, 3 hours, 39 minutes ago
Monday, April 16, 2012 7:34:36 AM GMT
FEZ is an indie platformer with a retro look and a central premise that is as unique as it is simple. Sound familiar? Such games are a dime a dozen these days, with new ones cropping up every week, but back when FEZ was first revealed, it truly stood out from the crowd. (more)

How enhanced is the Xbox 360 edition of The Witcher 2?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1983 days, 3 hours, 43 minutes ago
Monday, April 16, 2012 7:31:34 AM GMT
It's been almost a year now since The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was released on PC. Built upon an engine with multiplatform support in mind, a console version was inevitable. Outsourcing a port for the first The Witcher didn't work out very well, so this time CD Projekt RED decided to take full control of developing the Xbox 360 version of their second Witcher baby mutant.

Preview: Lost Planet 3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1988 days, 5 hours, 43 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 11, 2012 5:31:23 AM GMT
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)

Preview: Resident Evil 6

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1988 days, 5 hours, 44 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.

Retake Mass Effect? Let's REMAKE Mass Effect!

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2013 days, 3 hours, 16 minutes ago
Saturday, March 17, 2012 7:57:35 AM GMT
As you may have heard, there is a group calling themselves Retake Mass Effect who are lobbying for BioWare to create a new ending for Mass Effect 3, and they're doing a great job of drawing attention to themselves. First they got angry at BioWare, then they did some nice work for charity, then they told everyone that they did some nice work for charity, and now I'm writing about the fact that they told everyone that they did some nice work for charity. In short, they know what they're doing. (more)

Review: Silent Hill: Downpour

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2018 days, 2 hours, 26 minutes ago
Monday, March 12, 2012 8:48:02 AM GMT
Silent Hill 2 is my favorite videogame of all time, and it is possibly due to this that I have had a somewhat tempestuous relationship with the series ever since. My desperation to see Konami's classic horror series reach the narrative and atmospheric heights of its first sequel has led to great frustration with the games that have appeared since. (more)

Review: Journey

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2028 days, 2 hours, 6 minutes ago
Friday, March 02, 2012 9:08:10 AM GMT
How does one describe Journey, exactly? It's a videogame unlike any other, to the point where calling it a videogame doesn't quite feel right. One could call it an art game, but that would draw comparisons with infinitely less distinguished pieces of software. Whatever label you want to affix to thatgamecompany's latest creation, there's one description that absolutely everybody should be able to agree on. (more)

Rumor: Art hints at the direction of Assassin's Creed III

Friday, March 02, 2012 9:07:23 AM GMT
An employee of Best Buy sent Kotaku this artwork for Assassin's Creed III, which suggests that we'll be playing as a Native American character come this October. And, going a step further, that this game will at least partially revolve around the American Revolution. (more)

Review: Alan Wake's American Nightmare

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2031 days, 2 hours, 2 minutes ago
Tuesday, February 28, 2012 9:11:55 AM GMT
Ask any fan why they like Alan Wake, and you'll hear different stories. Some will talk about how they enjoyed the Stephen King, Twin Peaks, and Lost inspired storyline and setting. Others will laud the tense experience on the Hard and Nightmare difficulties, or the use of music. None of them will try to convince you that Alan Wake was by any means a perfect game but, more than anything, they will all tell you how much they want another title. (more)

Preview: Getting in deep with the Triads in Sleeping Dogs

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2042 days, 2 hours, 51 minutes ago
Friday, February 17, 2012 8:23:18 AM GMT
I'm so glad this game has shaped into what it is now, because when I first heard that Sleeping Dogs was originally titled True Crime: Hong Kong, I thought to myself, "Damn it, hopefully this will be a short demo." Once I saw the game in action, though, and was informed that it was always meant to be a completely original IP (with or without the True Crime handle), I shed all reservations and instantly grew optimistic.

Review: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2052 days, 2 hours, 50 minutes ago
Tuesday, February 07, 2012 8:24:01 AM GMT
Sometimes, the best way to become a blockbuster videogame is to act like you already are one. That seems to be Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning's modus operandi, and the gambit is paying off. Despite the big names attached to the project, very few people paid attention to the game until recently, when it started confidently presenting itself as a game that everybody wants. (more)

Resident Evil 6: Hoping for evolution, fearing conformity

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2064 days, 17 minutes ago
Thursday, January 26, 2012 10:57:34 AM GMT
When Resident Evil first hit, it was like nothing the home console market had ever seen. George Romero-style zombies in a videogame? Cinematic camera angles? Finite ammo and health? Constantly being forced to choose between fighting and fleeing from your enemies, without ever being sure which path is best? An overarching theme of distrust and claustrophobic entrapment? Sure, some of those design choices had leaked their way into Alone in the Dark and a few other previously released titles, but Resident E... (more)

Divnich Divines: Do Japanese Vita sales spell trouble?

The PlayStation Vita will launch in key Western markets in a little over a month and so far the high-tech handheld has had a rough start in Japan. Sony announced at CES that it had sold 500,000 units since its December 17 launch, but over 324,000 of those were sold in the first week. (more)

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2130 days, 2 hours, 27 minutes ago
Monday, November 21, 2011 8:47:04 AM GMT
Instead, the console launched with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, a game that sent all the wrong messages to third parties on how to create a successful Wii game. Twilight Princess sometimes utilized the Wii Remote in cool ways (like pointer aiming) but also tacked on motion control in unnecessary ways (like sword swinging), giving the illusion of added functionality while adding little to the gameplay. The game looked great by GameCube-era standards but did nothing to exploit the increased powe... (more)

Review: Resistance 3

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2189 days, 9 hours, 38 minutes ago
Friday, September 23, 2011 1:36:28 AM GMT
Resistance has always been a bit of a strange series for the PlayStation 3. As an exclusive, it's always enjoyed added exposure and attention from press, but divisive opinions on its quality and the dated nature of its gameplay have awarded it far less commendation compared to the likes of inFAMOUS and Uncharted.
