Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2


The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners




Give Indie Games Some Love
by Brian Bentley [ Tuesday, 21st of September 2010 - 04:01 PM ]
Despite what the actual weather says or does, the summer season is about to close out for 2010. As was the case the last summer, independent developers have once again formed a coalition to digitally distribute their work to the masses in an attempt to fight hunger - most likely their own. In all seriousness, this is an excellent chance to get your hands on some fantastic indie titles and put money directly in the hands of the men and women putting their livelihoods on the line to push the envelope of innovation in gaming. You can pick up last year's six games in the Classic pack, this year's new six games in the summer pack or all twelve games in the Mega-Love Pack for $20, $20 and $30, respectively. It's only until Wednesday so get out your wallets immediately! Read More...

Always Look On The 'Light' Side Of Life
by Corey Dockendorf [ Monday, 20th of September 2010 - 06:29 PM ]
Today's developer diary from BioWare highlights Star Wars: The Old Republic's Jedi class, giving us a brief look into class versatility and the separate experiences players will get through both of the sub-classes, Knight and Consular. You don't necessarily have to be the goody goody Jedi (although you can), you will have options to play the more forceful and vengeful Jedi as well. From this video we also can see how diverse the Jedi class is, from playing the sneaky rogue style of game play, or straight on damage dealer, Jedi have a little of something for everyone. The Lightsaber battles are probably the largest parts of the Star Wars series, and by the look of this video, BioWare seems to be putting that extra polish on, and making sure players get the full Lightsaber dueling experience.

Under half a minute of non-game footage to promote the fact that Alice: Madness Returns is still coming to our gaming systems soon. Read More...

Diablo III Looks Healthy
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 14th of September 2010 - 03:59 PM ]
The Diablo III website was just updated recently with some info about Health in game. Now I know what you're all saying, "We know how health works, kill baddies, pick up orbs and regain health." While this mechanic remains true, we do get a few more details on boss encounters and strategies pertaining to gaining health throughout Sanctuary. Major boss fights make unique use of health globes. Each boss battle includes a custom-designed means of utilizing these globes to regain health. Read More...

Viva La Claptrap Revolution!
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 10th of September 2010 - 07:52 PM ]
Back in early August we mentioned the new DLC for Borderlands, Claptrap New Robot Revolution. It is bring a bunch of additions to the game, as we mentioned, as well as being included in the GOTY Edition, also mentioned. So what new do we have for you? Not a solid release date, but I'm willing to bet on 9/14, 9/21 or 9/28 if 2K and Gearbox want to keep their September time frame originally mentioned. It is, as you've most likely glanced already, a set of new screens and posters for the DLC. Nothing too revealing, but something to make you look at and give a thought about dropping the $9.

Portal 2 Co-Op Trailer Gets Extended
by Binh Nguyen [ Friday, 10th of September 2010 - 05:33 PM ]
I am sure we have seen the multitude of videos and screen shots of Portal 2 in the last few weeks. Yesterday Valve released the extended trailer for the co-op mode of Portal 2. Something that was shown at PAX Prime this past week at Seattle. It is worth a watch as it showcases that teamwork that is the only way to get pass certain levels. I'm not sure if they will include the high-five feature but it would be funny if you were able to self high-five yourself. My Take: I seriously cannot wait for Portal 2 to come out as I am a huge fan of the first one. Read More...

Review: Mafia II
by Binh Nguyen [ Thursday, 9th of September 2010 - 11:24 PM ]
From the moment my character woke up in the world of Mafia II, I was swimming in rich ambiance. 2K Czech did everything to put you directly into the life of Vito Scaletta. Waking up in your boxers and 'wife-beater' shirt, your buddy Joe is calling you with your next 'job'. This gives you an immediate sense of who you are that really draws you into this character. This is further supported by great narration and a robust storyline, but that is only a part of what happens in Mafia II. Let's talk about everything else. Read More...

Aggrocast Episode Seventy Eight: Keeping The Class Up
by Brian Bentley [ Thursday, 9th of September 2010 - 03:42 PM ]
Corey joins up with Brian and Binh again for another exciting and yet "classy" episode of the Aggrocast. The crew talks about what they have been playing - including Mafia II, Mushroom Wars, Persona 4 and going back old school with Dungeon Siege 2. This week the crew delves into the XBox Live price increase as well as the price drop of the Nintendo DSi. Then, Corey decides to play devil's advocate for Apple's newly announced GameCenter. Hilarity ensues when all three gentlemen dance around the PC/Mac debate once again. Read More...

Learn Where The Plague Comes From in Dead Rising 2
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 8th of September 2010 - 08:38 PM ]
Dead Rising 2 is only a few weeks out from launch. Wouldn't it be nice to have a solid feel for what is going into the game? You already know the basics of the story, the characters you will encounter, the weapons you'll use as well as the multiplayer. Yea, it kind of would be nice to have it all in one nice little spot. Well at least in four different video spots, which are all shown below. I do wonder if they truly did build all the jury-rigged weapons in house to see if they would work or not as it is shown in the clip. Read More...

Dungeon Seige III Gameplay Trailer Released
by Corey Dockendorf [ Friday, 3rd of September 2010 - 11:39 PM ]
What a way to kick off the Labor Day weekend! With PAX currently going on, there's going to be a lot of great stuff coming out of the convention and the first thing we get to kick off this holiday weekend is the new Dungeon Siege III Game play Trailer from Square Enix and Obsidian Entertainment. I have now watched this trailer three times and I still don't know what to say. We see a warrior type character and a caster archetype showing off the hack 'n' slash style game play we've come to expect from this dungeon crawler. The character models to me scream Square Enix; their digital footprint is all over this game. Read More...

Time To Go Back To The Future
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 3rd of September 2010 - 03:42 PM ]
I think Telltale Games took the DeLorean the wrong way through the time stream. Instead of going back and making a huge game based off the franchise back in the late 80's and early 90's, they went forward and decided to make a game 20 years after the last film hit theaters. That is, if it somehow came out before the end of the year. That just seems like the wrong way to do things. What they did do right though is snagged one of the guys who wrote the scripts from the classic films and also grabbed the great Christopher Lloyd to actually voice Doc Brown. Read More...

Batman Arkham City Covered In Blue Haze Too
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Wednesday, 1st of September 2010 - 08:14 PM ]
With the new iteration of the Batman: Arkham [Insert Location Here] franchise, a new look will emerge.  The technology and graphics capability have been expanded on and it would be irresponsible for the developers over at Rocksteady to not utilize these changes. Even just textures and character models would generally be enough to satisfy the ever-expanding needs and wants of gamers. Well looking below, they are doing just that with Batman: Arkham City and its denizens. To be truly honest, the only character model/textures that look similar from Batman: Arkham Asylum would be that of the titular character. Read More...

Review: Worms Reloaded
by Corey Dockendorf [ Tuesday, 31st of August 2010 - 10:52 PM ]
Team17's breaking away from the retail publishing biz and now focusing more on digital publishing. Now we may see more Worms games popping up on the digital market soon. Judging from their long line of Alien Breed and Worms titles, it seems like a smart move on their part; but we're not here to discuss Team 17's business model restructure, we're here to talk about Worms Reloaded. Overview For those that have never played Worms before, it is a 2D turn-based strategy game where you take your team of worms and shoot, sheep and blow up the opposing team in spectacular fashion. Worms can be played in single player campaign mode or multiplayer mode with up to four players. Read More...

In The Secret World, The Templars Are From London
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 31st of August 2010 - 05:41 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 - 02:42 PM ]
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.
