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...

Ghost Busters Heading Even Deeper Into A Sanctum Of Slime
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 9th of December 2010 - 05:26 PM ]
Last Week we brought you the first look at the new Ghost Busters game that is being produced for spring 2011. Let's just say they were a bit unimpressive. In fact mixed with the news that none of the original cast where attached to the project, there is a lot of doubt cast on Sanctum Of Slime. I mean they turned the Ecto-3 into a fucking hummer for the game. You can totally see it in the larger images and video below. Now to my hopes. Read More...

A New Loock At L.A. Noire
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 9th of December 2010 - 12:07 PM ]
More like four new looks at L.A. Noire for your viewing pleasure. All with a little bit of history mixed in. Like did you know that 1947 was the most violent year in L.A.'s history? Or that it was alright for Lester The Molester to group dead bodies as long as the window was open to any and all voyeurs out there? My personal favorite is the fact that "Talk To The Hand" was coined way back in those days by a flatfoot defending a lone barricade. Isn't history fun and exciting? Read More...

Time For A Tomb Raider Reboot
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 8th of December 2010 - 12:47 PM ]
Looks like it is that time again. You know the time to brush the dust off a franchise that paid off well in the past because we are running out of original ideas. Square Enix just let loose the announcement of another new Tomb Raider game. A full on game at that and not just a downloadable PSN/XBLA game. Only thing is, they are going to try and tell us all where Lara Croft came from…except it isn't the Lara we already know. Here is the short description of the title Crystal Dynamics will be working on. Read More...

Review: Poker Night At The Inventory
by Corey Dockendorf [ Friday, 3rd of December 2010 - 02:09 PM ]
The guys over at Telltale Games recently released a title called Poker Night At The Inventory, which pits you against some infamous characters from the gaming universe. It's an interesting deviation from your typical Telltale fare like Sam&Max and The Tales Of Monkey Island series. The title is $4.99 on Steam right now, so let's see how it holds up. The game starts in front of a door where you head down a secret elevator leading to an exclusive club: "The Inventory." Here you are greeted by the host who escorts you to a table in the back room for a poker tournament with The Heavy from Team Fortress 2, Strong Bad (nuff said), Tycho from Penny Arcade and Max from Sam&Max.

Onlive Monthly Charge Making a Come Back
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 3rd of December 2010 - 09:06 AM ]
I swear the monthly charge thing for Onlive is flip flopping more than Ross Perot's candidacy for President in the 90's. First they are going to charge a monthly fee just so you can buy or rent games. Then they take away the monthly fee and leave it open for anyone that wants to buy or rent games. Now they are offering a monthly fee again. At least this time it isn't just to have access to the games you have already purchased or rented. Looks like anyone that has picked up their MicroConsole or uses the PC/Mac app will have the ability to pay $9. Read More...

Ghostbusters Heading Into A Sanctum Of Slime
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 2nd of December 2010 - 02:03 PM ]
With Ghostbusters: The Videogame selling over a million copies, it looks like Atari decided to milk our childhoods for more money by having Wanako Studios, a studio owned by the makers of Naughty Bear, slop together another game in the franchise. From these preliminary views, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime is going to play just like Alien Breed or Dead Nation with a coat of Ghostbusters paint on it. A 3/4 view running around an area aiming proton beams to wrangle up all the unsavory specters. Maybe they will include the purple slime from the second film in some way. Read More...

Review: Call Of Duty: Black Ops
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 1st of December 2010 - 04:21 PM ]
We've been through WWII and up to Modern Warfare so now it is time to tackle two "wars" that seem to be glanced over by most FPS franchises. Yea, Call of Duty: Black Ops places us deep in the mix of the Vietnam War and the Bay Of Pigs Invasion all in another attempt to stop the Russians from destroying the U.S. This time they are trying it through chemical warfare and biological warfare.

The Shattering Is Upon Us And I Blame The Gnomes
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 23rd of November 2010 - 11:43 PM ]
It's been six years to the day since the original release of World of Warcraft and how does Blizzard celebrate? By destroying the old world of Azeroth compliments of a big angry dragon made of fire and metal. According to a forum post by moderator Zaryhm the latest patch 4.0.3a has gone live on servers today thus changing the way denizens of Azeroth have adventured for years. The cinematic below is the same that you will see when you first login to your account, so if you haven't seen it (doubtful), or don't want to spoil it (your call) don't watch it! Let's take a quick look at what this new patch is actually brought today. Read More...

Guardians Of Graxia Gets Steamed Up
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 23rd of November 2010 - 06:01 PM ]
Although it launched on Steam last week to a rocky start, Petroglyph games released its latest content filled Map Pack, for the tiny price tag of $12. There has been some great content added and a few items that didn't make it in. So let's take a look at what we should be thankful for in this latest content release for Guardians of Graxia. With Guardians of Graxia's Steam launch, players can pick up the original game along with the expansive map pack for under $12. This includes the %10 Steam discount. Read More...

Finally What Deus Ex Game Play Will Look Like
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 23rd of November 2010 - 11:19 AM ]
Up until now we have been given pre-rendered scenes and clips to show off Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Those clips did have some gorgeous visuals no doubt. I mean look at the studio and publisher for it, it's kind of what they are known for. But in the end, none of that did all that much to show off what we will actually get to control during the game. I also mean really control since the last "Game Play" clip was more scripted scenes than anything. Below is another clip showing off a bit more of what I mentioned we've missed so far, actual game play. Read More...

APB Finds A Buyer And Re-Launching In 2011
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 16th of November 2010 - 01:12 PM ]
Two months ago the company known as Realtime Worlds announced that the First-Person-Shooter-MMO All Points Bulletin was shutting down, and being laid to rest. Many people fought to get their money back, and EA was pretty cool about the whole thing. Not knowing if it would ever be revived, rumors started flying that companies around the globe were looking at buying APB and its fate was held in the balance. Well it looks like the California based GamersFirst and its subsidiary company Reloaded will resurrect APB early next year. The question stands, will it have a better launch than it did its first time around? Read More...

New L.A. Noire Trailer May Make Or Break You
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 12th of November 2010 - 04:31 PM ]
Heavy Rain was my first real endeavor into the "crime drama" genre of video games. I am talking real crime drama style here as well. After watching the below trailer for L.A. Noire, I think I might be making the jump back into a genre that has only caught my eye once. While there is not much given away, I will say that it looks to be an intense experience with some crazy events that will transpire. It is RockStar after all. Also another thing to note, just like the previously mentioned Heavy Rain, the facial and character movements seem to be pushing the envelope. Read More...

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Is Loaded With Zombies
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 9th of November 2010 - 11:48 AM ]
So if you stayed up till midnight, or are heading to the store to pick up your copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops today you're actually getting multiple games for the price of one. If you want to avoid spoilers and find out everything on your own, go no further. The path you take here will lead to certain destruction. With the midnight release of Call of Duty: Black Ops we've already got our first look at an unlockable mini-game called Dead Ops Arcade. This overhead arcade style shooter is very reminiscent of Alien Breed. Read More...
