GTA V

Will Grand Theft Auto V be the GTA I actually finish?

Posted by & filed under .

So, a new trailer for Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V came out this week, and it looks fantastic. Every frame is filled with the kind of expansive, anything-goes gameplay that has been the series’ calling card since the release of Grand Theft Auto III way back in 2001. In fact, the game looks like […]

Die Hard: Beyond the movies

Posted by & filed under , , , .

Did you know the first two Die Hard movies were based on pre-existing novels? Or that eight videogames based on the Die Hard franchise have been released? Or that Al Powell once showed up on an episode of Chuck?! If not, settle in, as we’re going to take you through the inspirations for and spinoffs […]

Videogame review: DmC: Devil May Cry

Posted by & filed under .

This review is a bit late, yes. Although it was because, in truth, I simply can’t stop playing this game. As I said in my demo impressions a couple months back, there has been no shortage of controversy surrounding Capcom’s reboot of their groundbreaking Stylish Hard Action series, Devil May Cry. A graphics engine that […]

An early look at Bayonetta 2

Posted by & filed under .

Platinum Games has finally shown off a bit of the Nintendo Wii-U exclusive Bayonetta 2, which is already looking pretty good even in development form. The director on the first, Hideki Kamiya, has taken the role of supervising producer on the sequel while Yusuke Hashimoto, producer of the original game, takes over the reins as […]

Dead Space 3 demo impressions

Posted by & filed under .

After playing the demo for Visceral Games’ highly anticipated Dead Space 3 last night and getting some hands-on time with both the single player and co-op components of it, I can say with great relief that Dead Space 3 is still as scary and intense as ever, if the bit I got to experience was […]

Going puzzling with The Room

Posted by & filed under .

I’ve always liked puzzles. Growing up I was constantly buying various types of Rubik’s Cube-esque contraptions to fiddle with. I remember, as a teen, being at the house of some friends of my parents’. They had this little plastic puzzle. It was four interconnected cubes with a big red ball trapped inside one of them. […]

The terrible hissing of Far Cry 3′s Komodo dragons

Posted by & filed under .

There are bigger and tougher and deadlier animals than the Komodo dragon in Ubisoft’s jungle-island shooter Far Cry 3, but it’s the dragon I continue to hear in my head after I shut the game off for the night. It’s that hiss. That horrible, horrible hiss. It’s the stuff of nightmares. When you hear it, […]

Resident Evil 6 … a number of nice new touches.

An open letter to Capcom
regarding Resident Evil 6

Posted by & filed under .

Dear Capcom, We’ve had a relationship, your company and I, for well near three decades now. The Capcom brand has always synonymous with a quality gaming experience for me. Ghosts’n Goblins, Street Fighter, Speed Rumbler, Commando, Gunsmoke, 1942, Bionic Commando, Mercs, Captain Commando, Section Z, Strider … and that’s just naming the obvious ones. Capcom […]

The end of an era at BioWare

Posted by & filed under .

I doubt it was an accident that BioWare made Dragon Age III: Inquisition official on Monday. They probably wanted to build up a little bit of goodwill before the next bit of company news broke a day later, when BioWare founders Ray Muzkya and Greg Zeschuk both wrote blog posts announcing their retirement from the […]
