In The Secret World, The Templars Are From London
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 31st of August 2010 - 01:41 PM ]
Holy hells! We haven't seen anything new about The Secret World since the end of March. Like the whole team over at Funcom was ushered into the basement bunker owned by the Men in Black for trying to show the world what is truly going on. I was a bit afraid that was the case too. I am overly excited to see if they are going to be able to make up for Age of Conan. While there is still no release time frame anywhere in sight, there is a new video showcasing part of the creation process of The Secret World - at least in the form of one of the factions in the game. You will be surprised that the Templars are also nothing akin to the real world or the Assassin's Creed version of the society. Read More...

Borderlands Giving Out DLC For Free
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 31st of August 2010 - 10:42 AM ]
Isn't it always the case now? Everyone is out to make a buck one way or another at the expense of our pockets. The recent price hike for XBL is a good example of that. What you may have missed is the push for Game of the Year (GOTY) or Special Edition versions of games that come loaded with all that expensive DLC pumped out after game launch. Obviously this is simply a play to grab all the people who didn't shell out cash to make sure the DLC was created. LittleBigPlanet and Batman: Arkham Asylum are great examples here of this.

Review: StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
by Corey Dockendorf [ Friday, 27th of August 2010 - 12:15 PM ]
Starcraft II has been out for almost a month now and Binh and I finally had an opportunity to sit down and really get into the game. All we can tell you is that if you haven't had a chance to pick up the title, you need to go out and do so right now. We should state that this review is going to be mainly about the campaign mode because the multiplayer is worthy of a whole review in itself. (I am locking myself in a closet and playing multiplayer until my eyes bleed Zerg Blood.) Let Binh and I break it down for you. Read More...

We Got A Mafia II Developer's Call We Couldn't Refuse
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 24th of August 2010 - 07:40 AM ]
Now that you have seen the videos used to muster up your interest in the game that was eight years in the making - Mafia II - what else do you think the developers would want to tell you about the game? Yea, trailers and clips are fun, but they don't always convey certain things about a game you want to know. Sometimes they don't even truly show how the game is going to look and sound like. Well, we got on the horn with Jack Scalici, Director of Creative Production, and had a few questions answered for you. Read More...

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Sunday, 22nd of August 2010 - 01:25 PM ]
Have you been left out of the loop on the news surrounding Marvel Vs. Capcom 3? Did you know there have been 16 announced characters already? Well more like 18, but more on that below. It would be nice if there was one place to see all the action up until now. Like some kind of montage video of characters and game action. We have just that for you here. Not only that, but two guys that didn't seem to make it into the montage. Read More...

Mafia II Web It Up With Videos
by Binh Nguyen [ Friday, 20th of August 2010 - 07:27 PM ]
A couple of days ago 2K released two web videos called “The Art of Persuasion” and “Tools Of The Trade” for our viewing pleasure as it gets closer for Mafia II to drop this upcoming Tuesday August 24, 2010. You can certainly learn how to persuade someone if you are watching "The Art of Persuasion." Especially with a baseball bat. How about making yourself useful in "Tools Of The Trade. Read More...

Torchlight II Teaser Causing Salivation
by Brian Bentley [ Thursday, 19th of August 2010 - 05:14 PM ]
With the crazy amount of news coming out of Gamescom this year, even a little teaser trailer of the recently announced Torchlight 2 is generating plenty of buzz. Besides showing some outdoor environments, there really isn't a whole lot shown here, but the teaser did absolutely everything it needed to accomplish - raise the level of excitement and anticipation. I think our very own Corey Dockendorf demonstrated the proof in the pudding when he instant messaged me shortly after watching the trailer: "The new levels look pretty epic. If you all don't play with me, I'm gonna be pissed. Read More...

Looks like players of Lord of the Rings Online will not have to wait much longer for the highly anticipated Free-to-Play content update. Today it was announced that Turbine will be releasing the update on September 10th. The entire free-to-play structure has been under close scrutiny by fans and the press alike. In response to that, Turbine has conducted a fairly long beta test of the new material. The update is not made up of just the new economic model. Read More...

World Of Warcraft Cataclysm Collector's Edition Announced
by Corey Dockendorf [ Wednesday, 18th of August 2010 - 10:26 AM ]
In the tradition of Blizzard releases, today the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Collector's Edition was announced. Collectors of the World of Warcraft series will not be disappointed because everything Blizzard does for its fans is all here - from a full color art book to a starter deck of World of Warcraft TCG (featuring Worgen for the first time). Just like the Collector's Editions before, there will of course be an in-game pet. This time it's Deathwing, which is totally going to hang out with my Onyxia whelpling. Read More...

Dragon Age II Trailer Released At Gamescom
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 17th of August 2010 - 02:59 PM ]
Not long ago BioWare announced Dragon Age II with a website and more recently a good amount of information from hands-on previews and a full article in Game Informer. At the EA press conference in Cologne Germany during Gamescom, EA gave us our first look at the cinematic trailer for Dragon Age II and it is definitely worth watching. The trailer is titled "Destiny" and it is a spectacle to behold; nothing less should be expected from BioWare. The cinematic is beautifully rendered with some great looking characters and awesome action sequences. Read More...

Review: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 17th of August 2010 - 10:39 AM ]
Last we left this extremely odd couple, they were fleeing for their life with Kane's daughter not too well off. Now, from what you have seen so far of the story, it is years later and the two seem to have become closer even over international lines. At least it seems they are closer because I know I wouldn't want to go meet up with a psychopath that moved to China unless I had a better bond than "We Broke Out Of Jail Together." In any instance, the duo is back and ready to cut a new deal to finally get Kane out of the life of crime. Only with their luck, things are just not that simple. Read More...

Now That Revolt From Deus Ex Can Be Seen
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 16th of August 2010 - 05:07 PM ]
Earlier, we got to see some new screen shots for Deus Ex. Really nice shots. In fact, to me they looked like they were taken from another hi-res trailer we would be getting in the near future. You know what? I was partially right. That is, in the fact that we have a new "trailer" to look at for the game. Only thing is, it is not a hi-res clip but an in-game clip. A clip that you can see below once I am done telling you about it. Read More...

Tropico 4 Announced
by Brian Bentley [ Monday, 16th of August 2010 - 02:34 PM ]
On Friday, it was announced that Haemimont Games plans to build on their success in the strategy game genre with Tropico 4. This announcement is not a complete shock as its predecessor was well received by both critics and consumers alike. The series hits a fairly specific audience as you tackle being "El Presidente," a ruler of a small tropical island. Armed with the hopes of being a powerhouse nation, you decide how you will make this happen - whether that is politically, diplomatically, economically or militarily. The simulation-strategy genre has many different development houses that cater to a wide range of scenarios. Read More...

Team 17 has been busy lately. On the heels of their recent release of the Steam title, Alien Syndrome, Team 17 returns to its roots to bring us Worms Reloaded. Worms Reloaded will be released on the Steam platform, and from the looks of the video below, we are getting a revved up version of the 2D classic. Worms Reloaded will feature a number of new weapons, tactics and features, along with some classics like the Holy Hand Grenade and rope swinging. Old school players will be happy to see that the hilarious and addictive game play is still intact; new players, on the other hand, will be introduced to one of the most entertaining tactical games ever to grace the PC.
