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

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

GeoGuessr is an Awesome, Challenging Streetview Game

GeoGuessr is an Awesome, Challenging Streetview Game

I’m on a road somewhere. Looking around, I notice a few palm trees in the forest surrounding the road. It seems to be about eight in the morning, and there’s a yellow car just ahead of me. On my left it looks like there could be a lake, and on my right there’s a house. I shrug and head forwards- there’s not much information to reap. The signs are kind of fuzzy, and as I keep heading forwards I notice a couple on the side of the road, jogging. Eventually I make it to a sign- something about Great... Read On

Batman Arkham Origins Trailer Released

Batman Arkham Origins Trailer Released

Last week WB Montreal released a teaser for the Batman Arkham Origins trailer. I don’t know what sense that made, but it got people curious about the actual trailer. Well today they have released the full trailer for your viewing pleasure and it is all kinds of badass. Of course it’s just a cinematic trailer much like what was done with the previous two games and tries to set the tone for yet another long night for Batman.   Hopefully when it comes time to fight Deathstroke in the game it will be this intense. But honestly I just hope... Read On

Wii U to be supported by Cry Engine 3

Wii U to be supported by Cry Engine 3

The Wii U has been heavily pelted with doubt since the hardware was released November last year. A subject that has brought contraversial views that not only predict the systems future but all upcoming home entertainment consoles. EA recently stated that they would not be providing games for the Wii U format based on performance tests with their Frostbite 3 engine and the restrictions that go along with contributing to the Nintendo game library. Precursor games have emerged into the light with comments hailing the Wii Us performance in handling the Cry Engine 3. Nintendo’s next generation machine has... Read On

Deadpool Game Coming This June

Deadpool Game Coming This June

Next month High Moon Studios & Activision are going unleash a contagious personality onto the masses that will take the full video game spotlight. Deadpool aka Wade Wilson….aka “The Merc with a Mouth” is going to warp plenty of minds when Playstation 3, PC and Xbox 360 gamers get dragged into his demented world through the fourth wall. As a character Deadpool has to be the craziest son of a gun ever created in the Marvel Universe and most likely in comic book history altogether. Nothing quite spells about wacky than a mutant that can regenerate health, listens to... Read On

Game News: Is There Room for the Shield? Nvidia Needs to Learn from the Vita.

Game News: Is There Room for the Shield? Nvidia Needs to Learn from the Vita.

Not too long ago, I was at PAX East 2013 enjoying the sights, sounds and occasionally smells when I came across a pretty big booth that belonged to Nvidia in the middle of the show floor. There was swag galore being handed out- gigantic pins, bags, t-shirts- it was clear that Nvidia spared no expense to promote their latest product, the Shield. I got to try the handheld out, and I have to say that I was pretty impressed- it felt good to handle and the games showed off both looked nice from a visual standpoint (graphically better than...

Game News: McDroid Interview and Preview

Game News: McDroid Interview and Preview

As of late, we’ve been drowning in beautiful new releases- one game that captured my attention (and my heart) is McDroid, by Elephantopia. It’s an action strategy game in which you play as a robotic strawberry farmer trying to protect his crops from unusually aggressive worms. The game boasts a lovely cel-shaded aesthetic rather like Borderlands or Jet Grind Radio and gameplay that’s quite reminiscent of Pikmin. We got to chat with the creator of McDroid, Laurent Lavigne, and in addition to getting some insights on his upcoming game, we got a neat look into the mind of the artist himself- the interview...

Game Preview: Anomaly 2

Game Preview: Anomaly 2

When Anomaly: Warzone Earth was released back during the beginning of 2012, the title received great praise for everything it did correctly, and the content it brought gamers was unparallelled to most of the other titles that were competing in the same market. Anomaly not only gave gamers eye candy with very vivd and colorful graphics- even for the consoles it was released on- but complemented it’s visuals with an amazing soundtrack, meaty gameplay, and even a story that wasn’t dull enough to get gamers to quit. In addition to that is how well made the code of the game itself was-... Read On

LEGO Breaking Bad Parody Is Right on the Money

LEGO Breaking Bad Parody Is Right on the Money

I haven’t had the privilege of watching AMC’s Breaking Bad. I’ll give you a minute to yell at your computer right now. Feel better? Well don’t be too angry at me, because someone out there was awesome enough to make a parody in LEGO form. That’s right…LEGOs. And I for one would probably play this game. Now if only he would do a LEGO Walking Dead then we’d be in business. Tell me that game wouldn’t be hilarious. Read On

New Trailer for GTA V Shows Off Characters

New Trailer for GTA V Shows Off Characters

Let’s be honest, despite all the delays, we’re all still excited for Grand Theft Auto V. We’ve only had glimpses at the gameplay and not much info has been shared about all of the characters other than what Rockstar has said in interviews. But now they’ve released a series of trailers, each one focusing on one of the three characters we’ll be playing as. I’m still very curious to see how the game handles playing as three different characters. Though from the looks of things, it will be tons of fun. GTA V is expected to ship for the Xbox... Read On

Are Videogame Prequels Necessary?

Are Videogame Prequels Necessary?

Everyone loves a good franchise. Whether it is a movie series, tv series, book series, or game series, if it’s awesome enough, we the consumer want more. And why not? When a series is created that features not only a great story and great characters, but also a fantastic world, we want to be lost in that world. So it makes sense to make more entries into the franchise in order to give us more of what we love.   Videogames are notorious for having sequels. Not a year goes by when we don’t get a sequel to a... Read On

Movie News: Heavenly Sword Film Moving Forward

Movie News: Heavenly Sword Film Moving Forward

Earlier this week, Sony and Blockade Entertainment revealed a teaser trailer for the upcoming Ratchet and Clank movie, based on the series by Insomniac Games. Needless to say this got the gaming community excited. Heck I’ve only ever played one game in the entire series and I was excited. It helps that the trailer was hilarious. But it seems Blockade Entertainment wasn’t content with just one videogame adaptation. Today it was announced that the studio will also be working on an animated feature length film adaptation of Ninja Theory’s Heavenly Sword. Anna Torv, from the hit show Fringe as well as the...

Game News: World’s Largest Game of Pong Took Place On a Building (Video Here)

It’s tech week in Philadelphia right now, and many great things are happening around the city. One of them is the world’s largest game of Pong.Organized by Dr. Frank Lee of Drexel University, it’s something that he’s “been envisioning for quite a while”, and he says it’s “fun for anyone who’s ever played a video game, but it’s also a uniquely interactive art installation.” The first game took place on April 19th, 2013 and the next takes place on the 24th. The players are on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum, where they watch their game on the north wall of... Read On

TV News: Defiance Debuts; SyFy May Have a Winner

If you’ve been watching the SyFy channel since the name change, you may have been a little disappointed as of late by the current programming- ghost hunting, haunted thrift stores and “pro” wrestling seem to have been dominating as of late. Not to say that there’s nothing worthwhile on SyFy (Warehouse 13 and Continuum seem to be pretty well received), but for the most part, they don’t have any real heavy hitters- quite the disappointment from the channel that once ran Ray Bradbury Theater. So what’s going on with Defiance? in short, there was an attack by a group of relatively... Read On

Game News: Interview with Craig Stern, Creator of Telepath Tactics at PAX East

Strategy RPGs are a thing we don’t quite see enough of- if anything, the recent release of Fire Emblem: Awakening proves that they can be engaging and successful. I had the opportunity to talk to Crag Stern, the developer of a new strategy RPG called Telepath Tactics at PAX East 2013. His game looks intriguing- it contains some elements of Fire Emblem, but boasts some other awesome features such as destructible environments and mod support. How often do you see that in an RPG? Watch the interview below! Here’s some info ripped from the official Kickstarter page: Throw enemies off of cliffs; push... Read On

One of the coolest games I saw at PAX East 2013 was Windforge, a game rather like Terraria, but with a few differences (and airships!). I got the chance to chat with chat with Evan Hahn, the game’s developer. You can vote for the game on Greenlight right here. Read On

Batman: Arkham Origins Announced

Batman: Arkham Origins Announced

We all love the Batman games. Rocksteady took one of the most iconic characters in history and gave him not one, but two fantastic games. And after the amazing experience of Batman Arkham City, fans wanted more. Well sure enough, we’ll get it. GameInformer announced today with the reveal of their May cover, that there will be a new Batman game titled Batman: Arkham Origins and it will take place years before the events of the first two games. That’s right- let the excitement sink in because I can barely contain it myself. And yes that is indeed Deathstroke, which means... Read On
