You Can Binge Watch Mortal Kombat Legacy Season 2, But Do You Want To?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 2nd of October 2013 - 11:52 AM ]
Earlier this year we got a trailer and a few details about the second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. I was not overly impressed. Now the time has come and we have the full season available to watch. I have and am still not impressed at all. Again this feels like a simple milking of the franchise and nothing more. If you don't believe me or think you might have a different opinion on the quality of the web series you can watch all ten episodes below. It makes me sad to know that an original idea that happened three years ago spawned just another telling of the same story we have heard a hundred and one times already. Read More...

Burning Down Gotham With The New Batman: Arkham Origins Trailer
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 22nd of August 2013 - 03:28 PM ]
With the below trailer straight out of Gamescom, we are up to five of the eight assassins hunting Batman in Arkham Origins now. There are still loads of other villains, NPCs and sidekicks announced as well, but now we can add Firefly to the list of killers. Also it looks like there might be some pretty damn cool fight/flight scenes mixed in with this new character as well. Keep an eye out in the trailer and you'll most likely see what I am talking about. Also keep an eye out in case you missed all of the other villains and NPCs that have been announced thus far as they are all interwoven into this pretty bad ass trailer. Read More...

Here Is An Extended Look At Dying Light's Gameplay
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 16th of August 2013 - 06:00 PM ]
It only took a few months, but the world has been gifted with what was for Dying Light behind doors back in June. Yes, I'm talking about the E3 press showing of the game. Although I do have to say that there are at least a few differences that I saw here that I didn't get to see before. One of which actually pin points one of the features. The feature I am talking about is the dynamic side missions. In the below video you will see a side mission with a little girl in a closet. Read More...

What's The Good News From SDCC For Batman: Arkham Origins?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 30th of July 2013 - 02:15 PM ]
Well, not that much that we have not seen or heard from E3 will answer that question. It makes sense that Batman: Arkham Origins would be on display at the San Diego Comic Con but you would think that there would be some kind of information dump that wasn't handed out a month prior. I guess it is more about getting the information out to the public directly and not through the filtered lenses of the media. Who knows? While I don't think much was shown on the floor or during their panel, there were a few little tidbits and a new trailer shown for the latest assassin, Copperhead, hunting The Bat. Read More...

E3 2013 Impression: Dying Light
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 26th of June 2013 - 02:09 PM ]
Dying Light was one of the first games I got to sit in and watch at E3 and it was also one of the titles that really caught my attention leading up to the show. I completely enjoyed both of the Dead Island games and was interested to see how the FPS zombie genre was going to be changed as to make this a truly new IP for us gamers. Then I was a bit let down by essentially being shown Dead Island, with a few upgrades, mixed with the basics of Mirror's Edge. This isn't a horrible combination, but it doesn't really create anything completely new. Read More...

E3 2013 Impression: Mad Max
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 21st of June 2013 - 07:00 PM ]
I was born when Mad Max 2 hit the big screen and I was barely four when Beyond Thunderdome came out, but that still didn't stop me from enjoying the films, and the NES game, in my youth. You can only imagine my excitement when I saw the announcement trailer for Mad Max during the Sony press conference. Even though it was all CGI, Avalanche Studios had an Alpha build of the game in the Warner Bros. booth to show to all of us eager fans. Read More...

E3 2013 Hands On: Batman: Arkham Origins
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 20th of June 2013 - 07:39 PM ]
I have been filled with all kinds of mixed emotions since the announcement of Batman: Arkham Origins. I am a huge fan of the franchise and storyline of the game's world. I am not a fan of most prequels and unfortunately Arkham Origins falls into the prequel world. Usually prequels just feel like the developers wanted to do another title in the franchise but have been written into a corner or need to find a reason to explain why the protagonist is weaker compared to where fans left them. Fortunately for myself, I was granted access to the elusive "behind doors playable demo" of E3 and had a chance to play around with the younger version of Batman. Let me pour out my feelings on this now. Read More...

Is Dying Light A Capture The Flag/Parkour/Zombie Game?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Saturday, 8th of June 2013 - 04:18 PM ]
Talk about another E3 trailer that is all CGI and no game play. A new trailer for Dying Light has just been released into the wild and it surprisingly shows no game play despite the fact that it will be on deck at the convention this year. What is interesting to note though is that even though there is no game play some of the events could point toward other aspects of the game than "survive the zombie uprising." Watch and enjoy the trailer and I'll throw out my speculations afterward. So we all know that Dying Light is going to have a free running aspect to the game. Read More...

Parkour And The Undead Is Becoming A Thing In Dying Light
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 28th of May 2013 - 11:43 AM ]
Looks like Techland doesn't want to stop bringing the FPS zombie games with just the Dead Island franchise. Just announced is their new IP Dying Light which, as you have guessed, is another first person zombie game in an island/jungle locale. Before we start calling them out for rehashing the same platform like other developers and franchises, let's see what they have new to offer so they can claim this as a completely new IP. As mentioned in the title, there is a "free running" mechanic in place for starters. There isn't much detail on it as Dying Light is still in the early announcement stages but what is known is that it will allow us freedom of movement throughout the vast environments. Read More...

Batman: Arkham Origins Gets A New Trailer And Reveals
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 20th of May 2013 - 05:14 PM ]
Last week we got a pretty lackluster "teaser" for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins title still in the works at Warner Bros. Games Montreal. Granted it came along with a short time span before we were supposed to get a full trailer for the game. The wait is now over and the trailer has been released in its full five minute version. Unfortunately, it doesn't do much in the way of showing the actual game nor does it do much more than show a beautifully fully rendered fight scene. Don't get me wrong, I think the below "trailer" looks pretty cool but it is like saying the next WoW expansion is a trailer for the game. Read More...

More Screen Shots For Batman: Arkham Origins To Show The World
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 2nd of May 2013 - 07:01 PM ]
Who wants a butt load of new screen shots for Batman: Arkham Origins? You do of course. This should be something to help tide us over until we get some actual in-game footage or at least an awesome CGI trailer. Hopefully that won't be too far off. I'm thinking at least a month, if not sooner. We'll have to see. Maybe they are still trying to work out the Voice Actors still. Anyway, the following images do show off some cool action shots as well as a few villains. Read More...

Batman: Arkham Origins Announced⦠Yet Another Prequel Title
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 9th of April 2013 - 07:45 PM ]
With the success of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, most of us figured there was going to be a new Batman game coming. Lo and behold, just announced by Warner Bros., we have Batman: Arkham Origins to look forward to this coming October. Not only that, but there is also a handheld side kick that has just been announced for the Vita and 3DS; Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate. Unlike the previous two titles, Arkham Origins will not be developed by Rocksteady but in house at Warner Bros. Games' Montreal studio. Read More...

What Have They Done To Mortal Kombat: Legacy?
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 18th of February 2013 - 05:21 PM ]
Remember about two years ago when Mortal Kombat: Legacy made a huge splash on the internet? I do as I wrote a small review about each episode that came out. With each review came more and more disappointment as the story and whole concept moved back into video game cannon from the original concept that re-sparked the whole project. If you are not sure what I am talking about still, look to the very bottom to see the original video. Well now that we've taken that walk down memory lane let's move forward. Read More...

Big Surprise... Lex Luthor In Injustice: Gods Among Us
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 25th of January 2013 - 06:59 PM ]
As it should come as no surprise, Lex Luthor has joined the roster for NetherRealm's upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us. Why would he not have been in the game with his Superman/Meta-human hate speech? It makes sense. But either way, with the below trailer he has been officially added to the "Gods Among Us." Like the pun? Outside of that, there doesn't seem to be much more for the title here at all. Read More...

Sounds Like Batman Knows What's Going On In Injustice: Gods Among Us
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 20th of September 2012 - 06:04 PM ]
So details about the story of Injustice have been sparse and they still are. Even the full character roster has still not fully been disclosed. But there has been a lot of fun game play since the announcement and first public showing. Now that TGS is in full swing, it would make sense that there is a new trailer for the game. So you shall see that and a few new screen shots below. But before you dig in there is something I want to bring attention to. Read More...
