Hunted: The Demons Forge
by Corey Dockendorf [ Friday, 25th of June 2010 - 11:38 AM ]
Dungeon crawlers are making a comeback in this current over-saturation of first person shooters. One of the newest titles announced from Bethesda Softworks, and publisher inExile Entertainment is Hunted: The Demons Forge. This new title is built around the Unreal 3 Engine, and it looks amazing. Focusing on exploration, cover-based combat, puzzles and co-op play, all from a third person perspective, this looks like a must have title for any player that wanted to just rock hordes of monsters with their buddy. Hunted: The Demons Forge comes to life in a third-person dungeon crawl with the intensity and action of a modern-day shooter. For those that don't know inExile entertainment was founded back in 2003 by Brian Fargo. Read More...

E3 2010 Impression: Civilization V
by Brian Bentley [ Thursday, 24th of June 2010 - 01:08 PM ]
We've all been there. Light creeping over the horizon, you blearily look away from the monitor before you, slowly coming to the realization that many hours have passed – too many. Remorse settles in, but under that, a sense of appreciation for a game that can hold that kind of sway. Sid Meier's Civilization franchise has been at the root of many of those aforementioned nights for people around the globe. The franchise's newest member – Civilization V – was shown at E3 this year. Civilization V is the culmination of two and half years of development by Firaxis Games. Read More...

E3 2010 Hands-On: Final Fantasy XIV
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 24th of June 2010 - 11:04 AM ]
Now here is a title that I was overly excited to get to look at, and that is all I planned on happening this year at E3. Little did I know we would actually get to play hands on this up-and-coming bad-ass "sequel" in the Final Fantasy franchise. Hands-on with two of the major components for an MMO to boot: the character creation and a bit of the combat system. Let me break them down into two sections for you, with pictures. At least screen shots since pictures were not taken too kindly in the sectioned off tent in the Square Enix booth. Read More...

E3 2010 Impression: XCOM
by Brian Bentley [ Wednesday, 23rd of June 2010 - 02:06 PM ]
Idyllic ‘50s America - apple pie, baseball and... aliens? In XCOM by 2K Marin, you seek to remove that third tag, bringing peace to our tiny planet from the threat of alien invasion. The legendary title is back with a new spin on an old story. So, put on your pinstripes and suspenders and get ready for this new first person shooter. The story: you are Special Agent William Carter, head of the FBI’s XCom division - a clandestine organization tasked to locate research and ultimately eliminate the new, unknown force that is seemingly ripping apart America silently from within. As I walked into the demo room at E3, it felt more like stepping back in time with the entire room mocked up as a ‘50s kitchen. Read More...

Review: Alien Breed Impact
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 22nd of June 2010 - 06:53 PM ]
Alien Breed: Impact is a nostalgic nod to the classic top down arcade style shooter. Players take on the role of Conrad, a systems engineer who when it comes to weapons is a jack of all trades. If it shoots, blows something up or catches something on fire, you can bet that good ol' Conrad knows how to use it. Your ship is under attack by a swarm of Aliens and you will delve deep into the ship shooting anything that moves in an attempt to regain control. To keep things moving, at the beginning of every level you receive a cut-scene in the comic-book panel format filling you in on the story, along with full voice overs by individual characters.

E3 2010 Impression: Spec Ops: The Line
by Binh Nguyen [ Tuesday, 22nd of June 2010 - 04:34 PM ]
At this year's E3 it seem like everyone and their mother had some sort of shooter that will be coming out later this holiday season or sometime in 2011. Yager Productions and 2K games is no exceptions where they showcase Spec Ops: The Line for the first time. If for some odd reason you do not know much about this game then here is a little something about the game. Spec Ops: The Line is a third-person modern military shooter where you choose your own path in the game base on tough and unimaginable choices that you have to make on the field. The field where you have to make those choices, the destroyed city of Dubai. Read More...

Fire In The Sky For Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 11th of June 2010 - 05:10 PM ]
Awesome. Yet another title with an E3 trailer coming out before next week. Seriously?!? What is there going to be to see or talk about next week? Everyone will have already seen it all by then. All we need now is gameplay to be thrown out there and there will be no need for the huge event. Anyways, the next video to come out a week in advance is a new trailer for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Nothing to ground breaking either. Read More...

Get A Glimpse Of 2027 From Deus Ex
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 4th of June 2010 - 07:02 PM ]
Want a glimpse into the future? Or at least a thought of how the future might be in the next 17 years? Then do we have something awesome for you. A look at how the world might look in 2027 from Eidos Montreal and Square Enix in the form of the new trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. You know the title that has been getting the "secret" type treatment to build up to this. Now just like other concepts of the near future this is one that I can see working and hopefully not to far off. I mean, Demolision Man was way off and 1984 came and went. Read More...

Review: Lost Planet II
by Kevin [ Tuesday, 1st of June 2010 - 12:59 PM ]
When you start comparing Lost Planet II to its predecessor it seems like it should escape all of the pitfalls of the first title and really offer up a solid single player experience with a rich multiplayer to boot. Aside from technical issues, some slightly questionable AI and level design, it delivers. However, a word of advice: Don't bother playing the game by yourself. LP2 just doesn't seem designed for it.

Chris Hunting Hunters In Marvel Vs Capcom 3
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 27th of May 2010 - 05:21 PM ]
Ok, well not really, but think about the below shot of Chris Vs. The Hulk. Shot gun blast to the face of a big green hulking monster. Just like the first Resident Evil. Maybe that is how they are going to link a few of the stories for the game. That could also be a stretch though. But it could be easy to see happening. What other stories can we come up with from all the below Hi-Res screen shots from Capcom's next major fighter? Let's see. Read More...

Two Worlds II Trailer Debuts
by Corey Dockendorf [ Thursday, 27th of May 2010 - 12:55 PM ]
TopWare Interactive has just debuted it's latest trailer for Two Worlds II. The sequel to Two Worlds, which at release was labeled as the "clone" of the Oblivion series. Two Worlds was off to a rocky start and very buggy in the beginning. Not to mention the community had very little patience for an epic adventure of this proportion to be that buggy out of the box. Through it all TopWare moved forward and continued working on Two Worlds II to bring the players back to the world of Antaloor. Enhanced AI, balancing standards, experienced authors, an active combat system, theinnovative DEMONS™ magic management, and the PAPAK™ alchemy system guarantee enjoyment for new and experienced gamers.
