by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 2nd of February 2009 - 08:37 PM ]
Resident Evil 5 Viral Marketing So once again, the people behind marketing and getting gamers psyched about Resident Evil 5 have sent out yet another cryptic email to lure fans into the site for more content and exciting live action shots. This time it is a short film with Chris and Claire. Kind of fun to get you into the game, like you were not in the first place. Well interestingly, yes I used a big word, this time around is kind of like the first one. There is need for a password to get in to view the content. Read More…

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
by Kevin [ Monday, 2nd of February 2009 - 02:32 PM ]
Most licensed games that stem from movies have a history of well, being garbage, or at the very least having very few redeeming qualities. A lot of people attribute this to rushed development cycles to tie in with the film's release. There are high hopes for this though considering Raven Software, the team behind Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is at the helm, along with Amaze Entertainment, who have some debatable successes. It will no doubt be a great representation of the character, but with the previous Wolverine centered game, X2: Wolverine's Revenge getting somewhat a luke warm response, will people be ready to accept a new form of Logan - that's another movie tie-in?The official site: http://www.

The Joke Is On...
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 30th of January 2009 - 06:30 PM ]
Batman: Arkham Asylum "Joker's Trap" trailer Yet another trailer for this awesome looking game just came out. Arkham Asylum is the game for those who glanced over the titles. But back on topic. This trailer give you a good look at some cut scenes as well as a bit of game play for the game. It looks dark, twisted and how a Batman game should look. On top of all of that, it gives you the overview of the story of the game. Or at least why Batman has to go around kicking ass and taking names in Arkham. Read More…
Play Mirror's Edge The Way You Want
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 30th of January 2009 - 05:59 PM ]
Mirror's Edge Third-Person View Activated One of the major complaints I've heard about from this game is the fact that you can't play it in any way except first person mode. It is to keep you immersed in the world, but in some instances, it would be nice to have the option to just out to an over the shoulder camera view. Or at least a 3rd person view. Something that just isn't a normal option for the game. Read More…
Final Fantasy Like You've Never Seen
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 29th of January 2009 - 06:09 PM ]
New Final Fantasy XIII Trailer So last week I brought you the view of the counter on the Final Fantasy XIII web site. There was a lot of question what it was going to bring when it hit zero. Well now that it has hit Zero, which option was it from the list. Not the sephiroth one, unfortunately. But it was what some flash decompilers let out to the world. A New trailer for the game. Not to big of a surprise. Read More…

Darkness Creeps Into The Void
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 23rd of January 2009 - 10:04 PM ]
Dark Void Game Play Videos Not much to really report on here. The short and skinny of it is that Capcom has brought out some more game play videos for their new Sci-Fi Action-Adventure game. All of which are videos that got glanced over by all the other big things that Capcom was bringing out at CES. But what kind of a news guy would I be if I let something like this fall to the curbside. So with no further gilding the lilly, such a great phase, I will give you some more footage of Dark Void.
