Shenmue 3 at E3?

Shenmue 3 at E3?

Shemnue 3 at E3? Years have passed since director Yu Suzuki left video game enthusiasts wedged on a cliff-hanger moment that’s teased our desire to see the series through to the very end. The original Shenmue was nothing short of groundbreaking, this is the second highest produced game in history and introduced completely new mechanics that weren’t seen ever before. This Dreamcast exclusive definitely stood out amongst the competition as a shining example of the systems future potential which was cut drastically short after the prescience of the Playstation 2 & the DVD drive came to light. Since the... Read On

Konami Reveals Voice Actor for Snake in Metal Gear Solid V

Konami Reveals Voice Actor for Snake in Metal Gear Solid V

For quite some time the voice of Snake aka Big Boss aka the guy that gets blown up then reassembled with clone body parts was unknown since David Hayter took to his twitter announcing he would NOT be voicing Snake for the first time in…well EVER. So many fans were absolutely baffled. Why the sudden change from Konami? Of course we should have expected some more surprises from Kojima who just loves make us scratch our heads with every new announcement. Today Konami released their pre-E3 show and of course the broached the subject of Metal Gear Solid V... Read On

Deus Ex: The Fall Announced

Deus Ex: The Fall Announced

  Deus Ex: Human Revolution  was a great game that featured a fully realized future, with stylized neo-noir architecture and great music too boot. Oh and the gameplay was awesome too and allowed player to create their own unique experience and play style. Aside from some terribly designed boss battles and multiple choice ending forced down our throats, overall it was a great game. So naturally many people would want a sequel and be re-immersed into this world. And guess what…we’re still not getting it. A few days ago Eidos released a teaser announcing the game, but no one...

Game News: Tiny Brains Coming to Playstation 4

Game News: Tiny Brains Coming to Playstation 4

If you’re a fan of puzzlers with wacky humor along the lines of Portal, you’re going to want to check out Tiny Brains, an upcoming indie puzzle game that puts you in the shoes of a lab animal trying to escape- you’ve been experimented on and now have superpower that you plan on using to bust loose. The game is built for co-op and was one of my personal favorites at PAX East 2013. If you’re interested in reading more about it, be sure to check out our interview with the game’s creator. As far as the good news about... Read On

E3 Isn’t Important (For Most of Us)

E3 Isn’t Important (For Most of Us)

“Adapt or die.” So said Darwin a great many years ago, and this has become a mantra in the business world today. It’s important to recognize when things are changing and be ready to change with them or face one’s own end. Such may be true for E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. For quite a few years, it was the only show in town- it was before the Penny Arcade Expo and New York Comic Con. It started in 1996- back when SNES games were still in production and the Nintendo 64 was brand spanking new. Things were very... Read On

Fallout 4 targeted to be an Xbox One Exclusive?

Fallout 4 targeted to be an Xbox One Exclusive?

Fallout 4 has been a pending nuclear weapon waiting to detonate following the groundbreaking prequel which interjected players into a baron wasteland that richly provided hours of entertainment. It became little surprise that the third instalment (a multiplatform release) earned a “megaton” in praise and recognised as “Game of the Year”. Bethesda has built a solid reputation with RPG fans and has continued to maintain the strong bond. The upcoming consoles to be thrown into the market this fall are beginning a struggle that has been emphasised recently based on Fallout 4s promise. Microsoft has attempted to strike a... Read On

Why I’m Excited For a Potential Mirror’s Edge 2

Why I’m Excited For a Potential Mirror’s Edge 2

  Back in 2008 EA and DICE gave us Mirror’s Edge- a first person game that said goodbye to standard run and gun gameplay and put movement and exploration in the forefront. Gone were the dark environments that populate most shooters. Instead we had a vibrant, clean world that we could only hope to have in the future. It was an interesting idea, though many gamers and critics were hesitant towards the concept. Sure the idea was cool, but the heavy focus on parkour from a first person perspective was something that wasn’t clicking with audiences. I remember when I... Read On

Game News: Two Awesome Bundles!

Game News: Two Awesome Bundles!

If you don’t know what any of the different charity bundles are that are offered by sites such as Indie Royale, or Humble Bundle.com, then you are missing out on very large opportunities. Basically, how these bundles work are, you pay however much you want, depending on what they the site thinks is the average, or some bundles just have you pay whatever you want, and then from there, you decide if the money should go to charity, or to the developers, or the site itself. This is normally a great opportunity to not only buy a pack of... Read On

Looks Like Young Justice: Legacy is Still Alive

Looks Like Young Justice: Legacy is Still Alive

I felt kind of terribly guilty for not having been caught up with the show Young Justice when it ended- it was a pretty good animated series about sidekicks kicking off and forming their own group. While the series has ended, a while back, a video game based on the show was announced. It’s name was Young Justice: Legacy. For a while, I forgot about it, and assumed it was dead after hearing of the show’s cancellation. Apparently, however, that’s not the case. While reading a press release for Majesco’s E3 2013 lineup, I spotted something that caught my... Read On

Current Generation to Lag the Next?

Current Generation to Lag the Next?

The Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 equally provide realistic power and have broadened by providing a multitude of entertainment. Consoles are no longer a one trick pony as you can access different entertainment services, listen to music, browse the web and watch a massive archive of movies. Its best put that they both satisfy many impulses to keep you amused by offering diverse functionality. Video game-wise we’re seeing a massive increase with titles being launched through the online marketplaces to occupy players for a very long time. Do note that massive titles later this year such as Watch Dogs... Read On

Epic Man of Steel Trailer Given MineCraft Makeover

Epic Man of Steel Trailer Given MineCraft Makeover

I think we can all agree that we’re pretty damn excited for Man of Steel. Each trailer released has been more epic than the last and it finally seems that we’ll be given the Superman film that fans deserve. I mean come on, the last awesome Superman film was the original 1978 version staring the late Christopher Reeves. And don’t get me started on Superman Returns (I’m looking at you Bryan Singer). Today has made me proud to be a geek as someone out there has taken it upon themselves to recreate the recent Man of Steel trailer in MineCraft. And they did... Read On

God Game Skyward Collapse Out Now: Trailer Here

God Game Skyward Collapse Out Now: Trailer Here

Looks like Arcen Games has just released an interesting new strategy game: Skyward Collapse. I’m a little surprised that I didn’t spot this one earlier- it looks gorgeous. Here’s a bit of info ripped from the official you-know-what: How do you balance — and indeed encourage — a war between factions without letting either side obliterate the other?  How do you rule over gods, creatures, and men who refuse to obey you?  How do you build a landscape of villages when bandits and mythology are conspiring to tear it down?  Skyward Collapse places you into the role of The...

Microsoft confirms first draft of used game system

Microsoft confirms first draft of used game system

Microsoft recently revealed a used game system for the Xbox One, though it may not be the final version of it. At present, you take a used game to the shop. The shop pays you a percentage of what they’ll sell the game for. The shop then gets 100% of the cash that used game sells for. With the Xbox One, you buy a game, put the disc in one time, enter a code, and the game saves fully to the 500 GB hard drive. No one else can use that disc. To trade a game into a shop... Read On

Interview with Guillame Boucher-Vidal, Creator of GoD Factory: Wingmen

Interview with Guillame Boucher-Vidal, Creator of GoD Factory: Wingmen

During PAX East 2013, there was a game that caught my attention- it looked like an ordinary space combat sim; it turned out to be much more than that. GoD Factory: Wingmen is a MOBA in which you design a ship and team up with three other people to take down the enemy team’s carrier (while taking care to protect yours). If you’re familiar with the likes of DotA or League of Legends, you’ll have an idea of what gameplay is like, to a certain degree. That said, the game takes place in space, and instead of using good... Read On

Microsoft meets Orwell and EA

Microsoft meets Orwell and EA

We’re all, to some degree, familiar with George Orwell’s nightmarish novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four. It’s about civilization’s plight against Big Brother, a fascist dictator who surveils the populace through everything, even their televisions. The way it seems, the Xbox One is on its way to making that possible. The Xbox One requires the packed in Kinect 2 to work. The Kinect 2 is much more powerful and accurate than its predecessor. It has the ability to recognize your voice and is powerful enough to detect your heartbeat and surroundings, even in absolute darkness. An internet connection is also required, along with... Read On

Pre-Order Bonuses Announced for Deadpool Videogame

Pre-Order Bonuses Announced for Deadpool Videogame

If you’re a fan of Marvel, then no doubt you love the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. What’s not to love about the guy? He’s got charm, charisma, knows how to handle a sword, causes lots of mayhem, and he’s got voices inside his head to boot. So naturally someone was bound to give him his very own game. And no one is more excited by this than Deadpool himself who seems to have highjacked Highmoon Studios and Activision’s e-mail because he just let spill the pre-order bonuses for his upcoming game. Don’t believe me? Read for yourself: Best... Read On

Assault Android Cactus Preview

                  From Brisbane Australia the developer Witch Bean introduces Assault Android Cactus which is a top-down arcade shooter up title that’s currently on Steam Greenlight rallying up support for launch this summer on Mac, PC and Linux. I was generously offered the opportunity to preview this game to spread the word on what to expect out of this title. The story behind the game surrounds the character “Cactus”, an enthusiastic yet inexperienced law enforcing android that investigates a seemingly stranded space freighter. Cactus soon discovers malfunctioning robots are aboard and recruits... Read On

What You Should Know About Used Games and the Xbox One

What You Should Know About Used Games and the Xbox One

The official announcement of the Xbox One was pretty average as far as launches go- it’s not that there weren’t some neat things, it’s just that they weren’t all that big. One question has been chasing Microsoft since the Xbox One was being called Durango, specifically, will it play used games? There have been rumors of Microsoft and Sony trying to kill the used game market with their upcoming consoles, since game publishers consider it a source of lost revenue. How Physical Games Will Work on the Xbox One Right here and now, I can tell you that the Xbox One will... Read On

Microsoft Unveils Xbox One; First Thoughts

Microsoft Unveils Xbox One; First Thoughts

Microsoft recently unveiled their next console- the Xbox One. And as per usual, they made the promises of this being world-changing technology, it’ll unite families, stop wars and cure cancer. We’ve heard it all before, Microsoft. Not to say we didn’t appreciate the neat reel of their developers in the beginning of the big press conference, but honestly? We wanna see the machine in action. And, after a bit of talk, that’s just what we got. Lot’s of features have been unveiled, and they showed off about… Three games, maybe four? Not very many, and not very much. They say... Read On

Xbox One Reveal Highlights

Xbox One Reveal Highlights

Today, Microsoft unveiled the next-generation Xbox, the Xbox One. What we saw the most use of is the packed-in, completely redesigned Kinect. The Kinect evolved from being a gimmick to help compete with Nintendo to a mode of input that is just as important as the controller itself. Xbox One turns on through the Kinect with the sound of your voice. The menu has also completely evolved to integrate these voice commands. You can operate apps with your voice, open your game, and even navigate to live television. A picture-in-picture-type feature, called “Snap Mode”, allows you to, say, Skype... Read On

Ubisoft to stand by Wii U

Ubisoft to stand by Wii U

The Wii U has faced heavy fire from critics and publishers alike. It was recently revealed that EA no longer had Wii U games in development, despite heavy endorsement of the console at E3 2011, and is doing anything it can to put distance between the seemingly-doomed console and themselves. However, a beacon of light has shined on the Wii U in the form of Ubisoft. The game behemoth stated that they understand that “it takes some time to grow an established base” and has a nice stable of games coming for the Wii U in the near future,... Read On

Sonic Lives On?

Sonic Lives On?

Sega’s greatest gift: Sonic. He’s been a household name in gaming for decades, but that’s begun to slow down in recent years. A May Nintendo Direct broadcast revealed that Nintendo and Sega are teaming up for yet another entry into the Sonic saga, this one being exclusive to the Wii U and 3DS. This partnership is worldwide and will probably persist until Sonic ceases to fill Nintendo’s pockets. The new game is titled Sonic Lost World. It’s well -known that one of the first video game industry wars was between Nintendo and Sega, with Sega losing out financially and not... Read On
