Control Will Be Using Some New Tech For Better Immersion
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 21st of August 2018 - 07:00 PM ]
Control A new video for Control is here and it shows us how the game will leverage some new tech from NVidia to make the world of Control feel ‘realer’ We are still waiting for some new gameplay details for Control and what we have here is not much in the way of that. What we do have here today is a small look at how Remedy will be using some new technology to help further the realism of the game's world and in turn increase the immersion of it all. At least that is the hope and it does look like they are on their way to do that with Control given the new ray-tracing and illumination effects we have to look at here. At least on the PC side of it all as there is no word on how this will translate over to the PS4 and Xbox One side of things, if at all. Read More...

Control The next developer diary for Control is here to show us the Oldest House and headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Control Here we go with the next developer diary for Control and this one takes us deeper into The Oldest House of the game. This would be the headquarters of the main organization we will be in charge of in the game as well as the location for the game. We have heard and seen a bit of it from Remedy in the past, but this time we get to know it a bit better and also see more than we have seen in the public before. Not much more, but it is a slight bit more of Control to look at as we learn more about the location that is part of a lot of other Sci-Fi buildings and constructs from the past. Read More...

Video Games A lot has gone on this week in video games. Here is a recap of what we covered in the world of video games on the site this week This week is now over and we can go back to focusing on playing our video games instead of hunting down for any new tidbit for them. At least on our side of the screen here. Not that it has not been exciting hearing more about The Walking Dead and Darksiders III, but it is finally time to let loose. How else are we supposed to get up to date with our South Park DLC and hammering out more for Shadow Of War? Read More...

Well, more about the path that Remedy games took when crafting the gameplay for the game as we do not have anything new in those terms to see but they do have a lot to say about it. At least if you are willing to dig into the new developer diary for Control that we have just below to look at as the team describes their approach to it all. They are aiming to make a different game than we have seen over the years from them so it is worth knowing how things may be a bit different than before. Read More...

More Of The “New Weird” Will Be Introduced In Control’s Story
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 3rd of July 2018 - 05:00 PM ]
Control The first developer diary for Control is here to explain how the team went about constructing the world and story of Control So far, what has been shown for Control has been impressive and it looks like we could be getting ready for another great hit from Remedy. It does seem to tick off a lot of what we all have come to expect from the developer and now that their title will be coming to the PS4 on top of the Xbox One and PC, it looks like it could all be more promising for the team to do well. All that needs to happen now is to make sure that the world and story of Control work just as well as the mechanics and we are all golden for a nice new franchise to pine over. Not the loftiest of demands, but it is all something that we are all waiting for to find out the full details. Read More...

E3 2018 Impressions — Control
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 25th of June 2018 - 07:00 PM ]
Control While at E3, I was able to see Control in a more intimate setting than just a trailer. Here is my take on Control. Another of the interesting titles that we saw get the reveal out at this year's E3 was Control from Remedy. It came at us all with a weird and unusual trailer, as was to be expected, and made a huge splash during the Sony conference where 505 Games opted to show it all off to the world. Maybe to hit home that their game was going to be on all platforms here or just the right place to unleash Control to the world. Either way, it was announced and slated to hit us in 2019 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Read More...

From The People Who Brought You Guacamelee!… Here's Severed
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 14th of April 2014 - 05:00 PM ]
DrinkBox Studios has announced there next title, Severed, and we have a trailer. When I hear the name Severed for a game title I automatically think survival horror or something alike. DrinkBox Studios apparently has a different idea with a FPS gesture based fantasy game. Quite a different stretch given the title but I was a huge fan of Guacamelee! that I will be willing to give it chance given my odd expectations. In fact, let us take a look at the first trailer for Severed and see how it is looking and how the gameplay will pan out a bit. Read More...

Review: PDP's Collector's Edition Tron Wii Remote
by Corey Dockendorf [ Monday, 17th of January 2011 - 09:46 PM ]
By Matthew Dockendorf I recently received an awesome piece of equipment from the company PDP gaming. Many out there know them as the creators of Afterglow controllers. I got a chance to test one of their newer products, the Collector's Edition Light up Tron Wii remote. First of all, everything about it looks fantastic. The sleek black blue and white remote came with an easy open magnetic black collectors box, complete with rainbow holographic certificate of authenticity on the inside lid. I won't lie. Read More...

Yesterday, Activision announced a new hardware bundle for Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo Wii. Goldeneye 007 is a polished up remake of the Nintendo 64 game of the same name.

Guitar Hero Warriors Of Rock Separates Your Reality
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Monday, 7th of June 2010 - 08:47 PM ]
After the reveal for Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock and the awesome new tracks, you may be thinking it may have been after E3 that we would hear or see anything further about this next Guitar Hero installment. Well since you are reading this, it is obvious that is not the case. There are still no further details on the game itself, but we do have a look at the next set of plastic guitars we will all be forced to pick up for Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock. Although forced might be a little harsh to say after looking at the new redesigns. Also keeping us interested in the new peripherals is finding out that they are interchangeable, which will lead to some epic custom plastic guitars. Read More...

Monsters, Controllers & Previews, Oh My!
by Brian Bentley [ Friday, 12th of February 2010 - 05:44 PM ]
Skepticism reigned as I sat down to play Monster Hunter Tri, but it began to dispel as I took the new Wii Classic Controller Pro in my hands and looked across the table at Binh, who was joining me for some co-operative hunting on another Wii. Capcom is breaking ground bringing the immensely popular Monster Hunter series to the Nintendo Wii along with this brand new controller. Though the franchise is huge in Japan, but not nearly as well known here in Europe and North America, Capcom looks to indoctrinate a new audience. If what I played at CES is any indicator, they are off to a good start. Read More...

Sony Motion Controler Delayed... Big Surprise...
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 20th of January 2010 - 05:13 PM ]
That's right. Get ready for that surprise. Just announced, Sony is pushing the launch of the new motion controllers back to this Fall instead of in the next few months as they stated at E3 2009. Not to big of a surprise as it was still in very early tech demo stage no more than a half a year ago. Even though according to the below press release, it isn't for development issues on the hardware side. But more along the lines of not having a large list of titles ready to go for the launch of the new controllers. I'm not to sure if I buy that, but at least it is a good excuse to wait on launching new controllers that will require a $40 camera as well as how ever much it will cost to buy them. Read More...
