I have been an avid gamer since I learned how to hold a controller. My favorite games include Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Mega Man, Ratchet & Clank, Resident Evil; the list could probably go on forever. I am also a big movie and television junkie. Pretty much anything technological or entertainment-related will satisfy my curiosity.
Most of you are probably too busy playing the actual game to be watching the menu screen of Batman: Arkham Asylum. If you look closely towards the bottom of the screen though, you’ll see a news ticker.
Normally these aren’t too exciting/newsworthy, but free DLC is always awesome, especially for such a great game.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will be receiving a collector’s edition like many of the other games on the market. Unlike the rest of those games though, this one cannot be purchased, at least until one of them hits eBay.
What makes this edition so special is that not only does it include an exact in-game replica of the Phurba Dagger Artifact and Collectible Art Book, but the Collector case is actually autographed by Naughty Dog!
While we were aware that 3D is the next step for gaming, we had no idea that all past, present, and future games can support the “realistic” effect. According to engadget, the PS3 is perfectly capable at outputing 3D signals to TVs and that a future firmware update in 2010 could bring the mode to all existing games…
Earlier this week, news broke that Disney will be acquiring Marvel Entertainment and its vast portfolio of over 5000 characters. The agreement came to Marvel shareholders receiving $30 in cash and about 0.745 shares of Disney for each share they held, totaling approximately $4 billion.
As fans of both Disney and Marvel, we can’t help but wonder how this will affect the gaming community. Will we be seeing a cross-over game featuring superheroes and cartoon characters ala Kingdom Hearts or will the differences be much more subtle?
Gather around the fireplace, kiddies. It’s time for another tale of adventure, mystery, and a whole lot of bloodshed. That’s right, we have a new trailer for Fairytale Fights; this one showcasing all four playable characters hacking and slashing their way through our beloved fairytale creatures.
Watch as Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Naked Emperor, and Jack take on the imaginary kingdom of our dreams in this nightmare of a trailer. Fighting fair definitely isn’t the fairytale way…
Remember the classic Combat2600 on your old school Atari? No? Well, two players would navigate their blocks (tanks) around a board filled with walls and attempt to destroy each other. Back in the day, it was a blast!
Gameloft has decided to bring that classic gameplay back with Battle Tanks, a rocket filled playground where the last tank standing is victorious.
Infinity Ward have updated their YouTube page with a new video showcasing a multiplayer match of Capture the Flag. Watch as two soldiers use teamwork to completely dominate the map and successfully deliver the flag to their base.
Gunfire, explosions, rockets; Modern Warfare 2 appears to have everything of a AAA game. Be sure to watch through the entire video to see some that the gun is not always mightier than the sword…
If you ever felt like you were destined for something more than rocking out in the comfort of your own living room, the Rock Band Bar Nights is the thing for you. Now you can take your show on the road to your local watering hole and perform in front of a roaring crowd.
Bars across the U.S. can now host their own Rock Band parties; complete with everything needed to throw the ultimate rock out.
Gameplay, graphics, storyline; these have always been the defining element in video games. Not to be outdone, the score of a game is becoming equally important.
Below are some of the games that have left lasting impressions, sometimes even more so than the gameplay itself. Rhythm games, such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band, are not included as they revolve around music, and let’s face it, we already know how awesome their soundtracks are.
The Ratchet & Clank series have always been about exploration and collecting. Up until now, this feature has been targeted at the various worlds that the duo explore. Space has always been seen as just a glimpse from the cockpit of your ship or as a brief shooter style level in which you are hindered to a set path.
With A Crack in Time, you’ll be able to take full control over your spacecraft and travel wherever you wish to go; exploring moons, asteroid belts, and whatever other surprises you might find.
This weeks new arrivals to the PSN Video Store include action, comedy, magic, and a little bit of mystery. To top off the list is Zach Snyder’s amazing adaptation of the graphic novel 300. Watching it will make you think why is this just now making it to the PSN?
Also near the top of our suggestion list is I Love You, Man staring Paul Rudd and Jason Segal. If you’re a Harry Potter fan then The Order of the Phoenix is the choice for you. If you can’t seem to find a film to your liking, then perhaps one of the hundreds of television shows will catch your eye.
While Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao was supposed to hit the North American PSN yesterday, a little hiccup has caused a delay in the update. In case you couldn’t wait any longer for the game, Blitz Games have kindly put the entire soundtrack up online for everyone to enjoy.
The latest issue of Famitsu brings us details of two new characters to the Final Fantasy XIII universe; Jill Nabato and Yaag Rosch. Despite appearing in the latest trailer at E3 this year, up until now, we have had no details on these two antagonists of Lightning.
We all know that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is going to be huge. First came the announcement of the massive Prestige Edition, complete with night vision goggles, and now we have Mad Catz, the accessory guru, bringing us official MW2 themed merchandise.
