A Date With Capcom At CES
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 12th of January 2011 - 12:20 PM ]
CES is generally not known for the game developers rocking out their new products and IPs. That is what E3 is for and we all know that. Capcom likes to break the mold and show up in force every year just to spread a bit more of the word on all of their upcoming titles. In this case, the titles were Marvel vs. Capcom 3, MotoGP 10/11, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and Okamiden - all of which I was able to put hands on. Let the impressions begin! Read More...

Impressions: DC Universe Online
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 7th of January 2011 - 09:12 AM ]
So here we are a week out from the launch of DC Universe Online and considerable time has been spent tweaking and fixing bugs in the beta, both on PC and PS3. I had the chance to be a part of the beta, along with all of you PSPlus subscribers or those lucky to have swagged a code to get in. If you don't fall into either of those categories, let me fill you in on what you have been missing out on. The Story Just like any RPG, be it MMO or Table Top, there is an ultimate evil trying to destroy/control the universe. In this case, it is Brainiac and he is doing it in the form of stealing all of the powers of the heroes and villains of the DC Universe. Read More...

The Softer Side Of Bulletstorm
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 5th of January 2011 - 12:25 PM ]
With a FPS centered around awesome and mindless violence - mixed with some story somewhere - it is time to show a softer side of this seemingly ultraviolent game. What better way to do that than have the President of Epic Games in the shower sharing his inner thoughts about Bulletstorm. Sounds on par with what the game is all about. Right? Well not from the description I just gave. Read More...

Review: World Of Warcraft: Cataclysm
by Corey Dockendorf [ Thursday, 30th of December 2010 - 01:51 PM ]
Blizzard's World of Warcraft is the current definitive MMO. With six years of collected content, twelve million players, and three expansions, it doesn't look like WoW is going anywhere soon. Blizzard had built an empire, but to strengthen the empire's walls, it would have to rebuild itself from the inside out. For the past six years, in order for a player to reach the cap level of 80, players had to grind through some of the most grueling quests we've seen since Everquest. Kill, collect, rinse, repeat, this was the old scenario until Wrath of the Lich King. Read More...

Atari Announces Dungeons And Dragons: Daggerdale
by Corey Dockendorf [ Thursday, 23rd of December 2010 - 02:24 PM ]
Looks like Atari is breaking out the D20's. I'm a big D&D fan so any news of the franchise coming back to life is always a big plus. It was only this August that Atari was announcing its Neverwinter project for the PC, and now we have another D&D title slated for a 2011 release. Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale is an action packed RPG that will take place in the Dungeons and Dragons Forgotten Realms universe. Dungeons&Dragons: Daggerdale centers on the desperate struggle to defeat the evil Rezlus and his Zhentarim in their attempt to invade and conquer the Dalelands. Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale is an engaging multi-player experience that introduces a riveting narrative and treacherous new characters. Read More...

Another Episode For Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 21st of December 2010 - 12:36 PM ]
I've always been under the impression that Episodes had to have some kind of link between the stories. You know, one ends and then the next picks up where that one left off thus continuing the circle of life. So to speak. It seems that Capcom has forgotten that part of things when titling the latest story trailer for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. The last clip left us with a fight between a slew of heroes fighting Doom and Super Skrull. Read More...

Bulletstorm Will Help Sate That Gears Of War 3 Need
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 20th of December 2010 - 01:14 PM ]
No I'm not saying that Bulletstorm is going to be the stop gap in the need for Gears Of War 3. It will however score you a slot in the GoW3 beta. Well at least if you preorder the "Epic Edition" of Bulletstorm that is coming to the XBox 360. There is no price difference for the "Epic Edition" from any standard price for a new title ($59.99) but there are a few extras outside of the Gears beta. Those being 25,000 experience points and visual upgrades for the iconic leash, deadly Peace Maker Carbine, boots and armor for online play. Read More...

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Trailer AT VGA's
by Corey Dockendorf [ Monday, 13th of December 2010 - 04:22 PM ]
This weekend Bethesda revealed their latest endeavor with a new Elder Scrolls series during the Spike TV VGA's. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the long awaited sequel to Oblivion. The teaser doesn't give us much except for a little bit of story and some awesome stone wall which comes to life. If you want to take a full look at the wall check out the Skyrim teaser site. Skyrim also brings with it new technology, a new graphics/game play engine actually. Bethesda has announced that this time around they will be using a custom built game engine that will be more powerful than the previous Gamebryo engine which brought us Oblivion, Morrowind, and Fallout 3.

Mass Effect 3 Announced At VGA's
by Corey Dockendorf [ Monday, 13th of December 2010 - 12:31 PM ]
Well I think we all saw this coming. Mass Effect 3 revealed its debut trailer at the Spike TV VGA show this weekend. This was by far one of the most anticipated announcements for the VGA's, with BioWare running a Facebook and Twitter campaign leading up to its debut. Mass Effect 3 is slated for a holiday 2011 release, but as we all know that can change. This is the final chapter in the Mass Effect trilogy, focusing on Commander Shepard and his battle against the Reapers, except this time they've decided to hit home and invade planet Earth! We've all seen this formula before (*cough* Halo *cough*) but hopefully BioWare will be able to add its own flare on an already used up storyline. Read More...

Batman To Take On The Military In Arkham City
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 10th of December 2010 - 07:03 PM ]
At least that is the impression the below teaser for Batman: Arkham City is giving off. Unless some super villain inside has their gang always dress up like someone from a Tom Clancy novel. Something that would seem odd but I guess the people over at Rocksteady Games could find a way to make it work with DC's approval. But this is only one thing that caught my eye here. What caught my eye is the graphics here. Read More...

OnLive Now Giving Us Another Way To Be Voyeurs
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 10th of December 2010 - 04:47 PM ]
Raise your hand if you are a glutton for pain and torment. Also if you are a fan of being teased by others playing games while you are stuck somewhere you can't. I know my hand is staying down. But there is good news for you out there that are a fan of strip clubs and being teased. Just released on the iPad and Android Tablet is a way live spectate of any of the OnLive game sessions from around the world. That way of course being a new mobile app that is ready for download and does not, I repeat does not, require jail breaking to run the full-featured Flash, Silverlight and Windows 7 application. Just took Cloud computing to get Flash on an Apple product it seems. Read More...

Keeping An Eye On Deus Ex
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 10th of December 2010 - 12:39 PM ]
Let the "viral" marketing begin for Deus Ex: Human Revolution with a fun new website showcasing some of the great augmentations Sarif Industries will be offering up to everyone, Adam included. Not only that, but a lot of other interesting facts can be found by "Hacking" the system. If only the careers section worked. I'd totally be down for some R&D. But I digress. Read More...
