Just In Case You Wanted To Go Hands Free Here Is There Came An Echo
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 15th of July 2014 - 01:00 PM ]
A new gameplay trailer for There Came An Echo shows off the voice commands in the War Room mode of the game Who needs the Kinect or the PS Camera when you can control every aspect of a game with your voice like in There Came An Echo? Yes, this feature has been in many other titles in the past and it has been met with great criticism and hatred but why not try it again? It was talked about for There Came An Echo before but we have yet to see anything in the way of actual voice command working for the game. That was until now… (Queue epic movie voice) In the below trailer we actually get to see all of those promised voice commands in work for There Came An Echo. Read More...

Where Is The Teamwork When You Need It?
by Kenton Winkfield [ Tuesday, 19th of March 2013 - 02:59 PM ]
In a world full of Halos and Call of Dutys where players can be a one man army and carry their entire team to victory, how is it games like Army of Two, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, or even Battlefield manage to have such a large player base? The amount of people who group together isn't as large as it would seem. People, like me, don't have friends to play these games with because our friends either don't buy the game or trade it in shortly after it's released. So now I run into team based games alone and I'm forced to group up with people who either don't have a microphone or sit in a party with their friends who are playing different games. Read More...

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...

Review: UFC Undisputed 2010
by Binh Nguyen [ Thursday, 3rd of June 2010 - 01:02 PM ]
UFC surprised us with a lovely right hook with last year's title UFC Undisputed 2009. A year later THQ gives us the slogan “So you wanna be a Fighter” with this year's release of UFC Undisputed 2010. Yeah the name hasn't changed much, but the game certainly has. If you do not know what UFC is by now then you seriously have been living under a rock - especially with names like Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell, Royce Gracie, Randy Couture, George St. Pierre (GSP for short), Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock. Names made famous cause of UFC. Read More...

Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 Comin' At You In 2011
by 345 [ Tuesday, 20th of April 2010 - 03:10 PM ]
This is quite possibly the most miraculous announcement coming out of Captivate '10. Sure, there was that other little game that apparently was a big deal, but for me it's all about the return of Rad Spencer and some of the guys from GRIN, albeit under a different studio name. Fat Shark Games will be keeping Rearmed 2 true to the original, though some new things will be thrown into the mix, including jumping and more physics-based puzzles. Simon Viklund, who did the music for Bionic Commando: Rearmed and Final Fight: Double Impact will be returning to do the score as well, which is very exciting to hear. The one thing that is unclear at this point is whether or not the coop will be online or not, as the original was purely local coop play. Read More...

Behold Disciples Of Nod
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 25th of August 2009 - 05:29 PM ]
Command & Conquer™ 4 Fact Sheet You want updated facts for Command & Conquer 4? We got the cold hard facts about the final game in the franchise. Well most likely final chapter in this story of the franchise. But still, we have all the factsy goodness and screen shots to add a bit to the anticipation of the game. Still have about a year to wait for it, so why not? These features being the case in point on why I say it is only the end of the story and not to all things Command & Conquer. Read More...

Pyro Studios Making A New Commandos Game!
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 25th of August 2009 - 11:16 AM ]
Well it's about time...Pyro Studios, creators of the famed Commandos series, is set to release a new Commandos game more in line with the first title in this WWII strategy franchise. How many of you recall the critically low scoring FPS shooter that was Commandos: Strike Force? Yeah, even Pyro Studios was less than enthusiastic about the title. Well, players will be happy to know that this time around they are going to be bringing back all the tactical gameplay that players knew and loved. No word as to how much Commandos publisher Eidos will be involved. Read More...

UFC 2009: Undisputed Review
by Jesse [ Friday, 29th of May 2009 - 08:18 PM ]
It’s taken years for mixed martial arts as a sport to grow into the worldwide phenomenon that it is today and much of the success is thanks to the efforts of the Ultimate Fighting Championship which has become the largest fighting league in the world. But if there’s one thing that’s been missing is an MMA video game that captures the spirit and the essence of the sport without having to step into the cage and get your face smashed in. There have been half a dozen attempts in the past, but nothing really seemed to work. Thankfully all that is about to change with UFC 2009: Undisputed. Read More...

The Fighting Styles of UFC 2009: Undisputed
by Jesse [ Thursday, 14th of May 2009 - 06:08 PM ]
Earlier in the week I explored the three striking fighting styles in UFC 2009: Undisputed and whether you choose Boxing, Kickboxing, or Muay Thai, each has their own strengths and weaknesses. But standing on the feet is only one half of Undisputed. Every fighter on the roster and every fighter you create will also be able to make use of one of the three grappling fighting styles along with one of the three striking styles. For those thinking of taking the fight to the ground though, understand that there are more ways to win a match than on your feet. When striking it’s always about the knockout. Read More...

The Fighting Styles of UFC 2009: Undisputed
by Jesse [ Tuesday, 12th of May 2009 - 01:51 PM ]
We’re a week away from the release of UFC 2009: Undisputed and even though it’s early, there are plenty of reasons for MMA fans to be excited. Perhaps the biggest draw is the depth of the game engine which seems to accurately recreate nearly every aspect of a mixed martial arts bout. As a result, this presents a very unique and fun challenge which is trying to decide what fighting style is going to work the best and be the most effective for you. Whether you’re using 1 of the more than 60 UFC fighters in the game or choosing to take your own created warrior into the cage, deciding the best technique for your style of play can be the difference between seeing your hand raised in victory or having your teeth shoved down your throat. Today is all about standing in the pocket and going toe-to-toe with another fighter. Read More...

Be Bionic
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 27th of April 2009 - 06:47 PM ]
New Bionic Commando Video After playing this game almost a year ago at the '08 Comic Con, I wasn't all that impressed. I new it was in it's early stages of development at the time, as there was a large notice on screen and plastered all around that it was in early stages of development. So I passed it off and decided to wait for the whole process to be near it's end before giving any kind of thought on weither or not this game will be worth picking up. And well, it looks like they have solidified my opinion a little more with this new video for the game. Well it looks like they didn't do much to what I had originally played and seen almost a year ago. Read More...

EA Cancels Command & Conquer FPS After Realizing That Game Already Exists
by Ben Brody [ Wednesday, 1st of October 2008 - 09:15 PM ]
Okay, so not many of you may remember the 2002 game Command & Conquer: Renegade but it was CNC's first, and so far only, foray into the FPS genre. That was about to change in 2009 with EA's Tiberium (it would've been the first game without the Command and Conquer prefix), a first person shooter based in 2058, about 11 years after the third Tiberium war. In a statement released by EA on Tuesday, it was revealed that the reason for the cancellation was due to poor quality. Here is the full statement of it's cancellation by EA's Mariam Sughayer: "EA has suspended work on Tiberium effective immediately. Read More...

Capcom's Gamer Day Alright, so, I wasn't able to make it to this years Capcom convention. A little upset since it took place in my home city.

I'm a little let down I didn't go, but I have the stories to share with ya. The guys at one of the best Game sites,, has all the stuff we want. Read More...
