Another Film Game Coming For The Amazing Spider-Man 2
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 21st of October 2013 - 04:42 PM ]
First let's start with the groans of "A film-based movie for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Then let's remember how not too horrible The Amazing Spider-Man film-based game was. In fact I rather enjoyed it more than I thought and I think that was part and partial to the game being in development longer than most film tie in games. It looks like this could be in the same boat. If you look below we have the announcement trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game that is set to launch alongside the film of the same name.

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 10th of October 2013 - 07:04 PM ]
Here we are five titles into the franchise and we are now getting the ability to manipulate some of our favorite characters and worlds with Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure. While personally I would have preferred a Marvel version, beggars can't be choosers when given the opportunity to rewrite, create, and travel to all of the famous locations in "nerd" history. As should be obvious, I had a chance to get down and dirty with Scribblenauts Unmasked on the PC and I am going to break it down for you to let you know if you should spend the time and money for the game. The Story After all of their fun adventures before, Maxwell and his sister Lilly are having a normal dispute on who is the best DC character. Read More...

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 6th of July 2012 - 11:12 PM ]
It's summer block buster time again in the film industry which means it's also the time we see the video games that coincide with said block busters hitting the shelves. While Marvel missed out on a proper Avengers title, Beenox and Activision made sure that they didn't miss out on a new Spider-Man title. The pair have already churned out the last couple of rather decent titles for the franchise so why not one for the film. Let's see how their faired in a genre that is usually know for making slop that just milks the films for more money. Read More...

by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 25th of October 2011 - 08:30 PM ]
Just in the nick of time, Spider-Man is back in another game for us to take on the many comic book villains who plague New York in Spider-Man: Edge Of Time. While not a direct sequel to last year's Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, it does have at least two of the dimensions represented and makes reference to the "Other Guys" from the game. That said, does SM: EoT reach or beat the bar that was set last year? We'll let's see. Read More...

Nintendo Drops 3DS Price, Rewards Early Adopters
by Brian Bentley [ Thursday, 28th of July 2011 - 04:01 PM ]
Nintendo recently announced that on August 12th, they will be reducing the price of the Nintendo 3DS from its original lofty $249.99 to $169.99 - a dramatic decrease. The most likely reason being they've sold less than a million units since the 3DS made its retail debut in North America at the end of March. Besides the high price, the 3DS had a few other things going against it: poor software library, no internet browser, lack of an online virtual store and the thrill over 3D is waning some in the general populace. Still, it all comes down to dollars and sense. Read More...

by Brian Bentley [ Monday, 13th of June 2011 - 03:37 PM ]
During the Nintendo E3 Press Conference, before the ooo’s and ahhh’s of the Wii-U unveiling and videos, there was the announcement of a sequel of the much maligned Luigi’s Mansion to be made for the Nintendo 3DS. While Luigi is often the forgotten, second fiddle, there have always been the defenders of the faith who hold true to the green overalls. With Luigi’s Mansion 2, Nintendo hopes to capture a new audience through the portable platform to formulate a new, bankable franchise. Let’s face it; the original Luigi’s Mansion on the Nintendo GameCube received a bad rep. Read More...
