posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 13 hours, 34 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:45:29 AM GMT
E3 has just ended, but we're already running at top speed at the next big gaming conference, the Tokyo Game Show. Destructoid will be there covering it, and it sounds like we're going to be bringing you some epic news about a Hideo Kojima PS3 exclusive that "will own the show." (more)

Last Call: Win a copy of The Whispered World

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 13 hours, 36 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:43:10 AM GMT
Sure E3 has exploded its big gamey load all over the industry, but don't you just want to sit back and win something every once in a while. Dtoid always has you covered for that. This time we're giving away five copies of point-and-click adventure game The Whispered World, and you could win one of them. If you read our review on the game you know it's a very solid entry in the genre that fans of said genre will really enjoy it. The art alone is worth a trip through the game, and if you don't have to pay... (more)

Sony talks sh*t about 3DS technology

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 13 hours, 38 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:40:51 AM GMT
So, Nintendo murdered everyone at E3, not just with its rather terrifying selection of awesome games, but with its stunning 3DS demonstration. If you haven't seen the thing in action, let me confirm that it's pretty amazing stuff. Sony boss Kaz Hirai hasn't seen the 3DS, but that didn't stop him chatting sh*t about the technology behind it.

E3 10: Hands-on Nail'd

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 13 hours, 39 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:40:09 AM GMT
I typically don't get along with "realistic" racing games, but I'll love any good racer that does something a little over-the-top. This is why I am somewhat drawn to Nail'd, a new bike racing game from Southpeak Interactive. It trades in realistic physics for sheer speed, and surprisingly it works out quite well. Read on for some hands-on impressions of Nail'd. (more)

Free App of the Day: Tilt to Live

Monday, June 21, 2010 8:40:04 AM GMT
When I posted yesterday's FAotD, a lot of people told me that Tilt to Live was also free. Clearly a popular game, and one worth checking out, I decided to see if it was free today. Joy of joys, it is. Therefore, Tilt to Live is today's Free App, as chosen by the readers. (more)

E3 10: Treading in the Sea of Chaos with Deadliest Catch

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 13 hours, 43 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:36:27 AM GMT
I did not realize at the time how many games based on television shows I saw at this week's E3. I probably only scratched the surface, for that matter, but it seems like a lot. Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos is another such game. The television show, which I'm really only aware of through hearsay and passing glances, it's about fishing for crabs, right? That's what the upcoming game is all about. Crab fishing. Is there a collection of minigames in there that are representative of the act? Yeah, you pret... (more)

Preview: Mafia 2 (and Mafia 2 3D)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 13 hours, 44 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:35:42 AM GMT
Mafia 2 feels, from the demo we played, like it could just as easily be called Grand Theft Auto: Godfather. If that's what you're looking for from the mob-o-rama sequel, then celebrate by throwing someone off a pier with cement shoes. It's actually pretty hard to note anything unexpected or different in the Mafia 2 demo. Almost everything you'd expect from a game that borrows heavily from the GTA IV template is there, both the good and the bad. (more)

Preview: Ivy the Kiwi?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 13 hours, 46 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:32:54 AM GMT
For some reason, I thought of Prope's Ivy the Kiwi? as a mellow title, a generally relaxing and lightweight game -- at least that's what I thought before actually playing the game. To my surprise, I was presented with a challenging, often chaotic arcade game instead of a frothy, low-impact diversion. It's just the kind of game I seek out, actually -- a game whose challenge comes from mastering a single, unique gameplay mechanic. (more)

Monday, June 21, 2010 8:32:11 AM GMT
While E3 attendees file out of a darkened room after a demonstration of the new Mortal Kombat, series co-creator Ed Boon is approached by a pair of enthusiastic fans. He gladly gives them a few autographs, and his face lights up in surprise when he learns that they've grown enamored with the fighting franchise in their 18 years of existence -- despite being born well after its inception. Has Mortal Kombat really been around for almost 20 years? (more)

This week at E3, Disney was showing off its latest Pirates of the Caribbean game, with nary a movie in sight. Armada of the Damned is being developed by Propaganda Games, creators of the most recent Turok titles, and it's ambitious: An open-world action-RPG with a morality system, based on the popular license but not on any specific movie.

That's it folks. E3 2010 is done and done. The Joystiq staff is now enjoying some much needed sleep and putting together what remains of our E3 coverage. You'll likely see a few more previews over the next few days, so be sure to keep checking back as we wrap everything up. After the break, watch our E3 goodbye, a montage of all the things we saw at this year's expo. (more)

Preview: Batman: The Brave and the Bold

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 13 hours, 55 minutes ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:23:54 AM GMT
Despite starring the same character, Batman: The Brave and the Bold and last year's Batman: Arkham Asylum are worlds apart. Rocksteady's game used Unreal technology to realistically render a Grim & Gritty(tm) Gotham in which Batman has to rely on his detective skills and the element of surprise to survive every encounter. The Brave and the Bold, however, is brightly colored and brimming with cartoon flourishes, and stars a Batman who punches thugs with abandon in broad daylight. (more)

Sonic Adventure on PSN and XBLA won't venture outside of 4:3 aspect ratio

The Xbox Live Arcade versions of both Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure were playable at Sega's booth, and both still look great, even ten-plus years after their release. However, each game has one issue that keeps the XBLA (and PSN) version from absolute perfection. (more)

Take a spin through a scenic Gran Turismo 5 gallery

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2616 days, 14 hours, 1 minute ago
Monday, June 21, 2010 8:18:44 AM GMT
1000 cars, 20 tracks, head-tracking (via PlayStation Eye), NASCAR, World Rally Championship, Super GT, two player split-screen, 3D, YouTube uploads, custom soundtracks and PSP connectivity. To say that Gran Turismo 5 is packed would be an understatement. This new batch of E3 media certainly looks pretty, but the real question is: will it be worth the wait? We'll all find out in November. (more)

2010 marked Nexon's first appearance ever at an E3, and that says quite a bit about both the company and the free-to-play business model it's adapted for MMO action titles. The South Korean company was showing off three different games at the show: the recently released 2D action MMO Dungeon Fighter Online, an upcoming 3D fantasy MMORPG with a casual bent called Dragon Nest, and this one, Vindictus, an action RPG using a heavily modified version of the Source engine to provide a little physics-based hack...

You might have seen an unofficial sneak peek of this phone earlier in the week.

E3 10: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood single-player story

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2619 days, 13 hours, 57 minutes ago
Friday, June 18, 2010 8:22:38 AM GMT
Last night, you saw a sample of the multiplayer component in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. When Chad played it himself, he wasn't so hot on it, but he really enjoyed the single-player stuff that he checked out on the E3 show floor. Now you can get a taste of the game's single-player story yourself -- above, you can find a seven-and-a-half-minute cut of gameplay/cutscenes narrated by Associate Producer Jean-François Boivin (it's the same thing that Ubisoft showed as a live demo at its press conference on...

Actually, that is a lie. We could all handle a whole lot more, but this is all we're getting right now so you better enjoy it. (more)
