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.
The zombie infested Dead Island will be getting a new storyline in the form of DLC towards the end of the month, announced Deep Silver. Players will now be able to play as Colonel Ryder White, the main antagonist of the main game, and explore the story from his unique perspective.
Capcom has released a new trailer for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, this time featuring something that is perhaps more dangerous than the zombies, lickers, and tyrants rampaging through Raccoon City.
Motosports come in all shapes and sizes, from the massively realistic races of Gran Turismo 5 to the slot cars of PixelJunk Racers. Somewhere in between lies TNT Racers; an arcade-style multiplayer racer where driving skill and power-ups determines the winner.
Originally released for the PSP and Wii, TNT Racers has finally made it to the PSN and Xbox LIVE. Does the downloadable title manage to pack an explosive punch, or does its fuse fizzle out before the starting flag is waved?
High definition releases of the famed first person rail shooters The House of the Dead 3 and 4 will be coming soon exclusively to the PSN, SEGA announced.
The House of the Dead 3 will release first on February 7th with The House of the Dead 4 coming later in the spring. Both versions will feature updated HD graphics, trophies, and PlayStation Move support to give you that full arcade zombie experience.
Namco Bandai has teamed up with video game t-shirt company Insert Coin Clothing to bring fans an official SoulCalibur V shirt, just in time for its February release date.
Insert Coin Tees have always been of the highest quality gaming shirts, and typically feature some of the more obscure references such as Calber’s Fine English Ketchup from Metal Gear Solid or Hog Wild Airtours from Uncharted. No doubt the SoulCalibur franchise is in good hands.
2011 was a superb year for video games with titles such as Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Killzone 3, Modern Warfare 3, and a slew of other games, both with and without 3 in the title. With so many great contenders out there, it’s been difficult to pick just one to crown as Game of the Year.
I’ll admit that narrowing down my list of top games was a difficult task, but there was always one game that stuck out most; one game that managed to satisfy every criteria in my head; one game that excelled in all aspects. As a result, I’ve chosen Deus Ex: Human Revolution as the best game of 2011.
Originally released for the PSone, Vanguard Bandits makes its PSN debut in North America, nearly two years after its Japanese PSN release. The game features giant armored mechs battling it out in a tactical RPG fashion, like in Final Fantasy Tactics. With so many games in the genre nowadays, can this 10-year-old title still draw blood, or is it destined to collect rust on the battlefield?
MonkeyPaw Games is most notable for bringing original Japanese PlayStation titles over to the American and European PSN. With titles such as Chou Aniki and Sonic Wings Special, they’ve become somewhat of a niche. Their latest release, however, is not an import but a remake of the classic arcade game BurgerTime.
In BurgerTime, the object of the game is to create delicious hamburgers one layer at a time, all the while avoiding the dangerous condiments and toppings that try and stop you. It was popular back in the 80s and MonkeyPaw Games has teamed up with developers Frozen Codebase to bring the game into the current generation with BurgerTime World Tour.
Ninja Gaiden 3 will be available on March 20, 2012 alongside a special Collector’s Edition, revealed Tecmo Koei America.
One of the new gameplay elements of Final Fantasy XIII-2 is that you now have the ability to capture monsters and recruit them to your party for future battles. Like any other party member, monsters have special attacks and their abilities can be upgraded.
The latest gameplay trailer shows off the breadth of capturing monsters and customizing them to fit your party. With more than 150 different types to collect, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is looking to be the most expansive game in the series yet.
A new trailer for Hitman Absolution debuted at the Spike TV Video Game Awards this weekend. Skipping the stealthy assassinations the franchise is known for, the trailer puts Agent 47 right in the middle of a firefight where his only option is to go in guns blazing.
The Amazing Spider-Man, the video game based on the upcoming film by the same name starring Andrew Garfield, has officially been confirmed by developers Beenox and Activision and will show off its debut trailer at the 2011 Spike TV Video Game Awards.
The Darkness II is adding fast-paced co-op “Vendettas” that will run adjacent to the main single player campaign, announced 2K Games.
These Vendettas will allow up to four players to tackle team-based missions that further explore the crucial role each character plays in Jackie Estacado’s campaign to defeat the Brotherhood and expand the universe of The Darkness II.
New developer Might & Delight has announced its first video game venture in the form of Pid, an adventure/platformer set on a remote planet filled with robotic looking inhabitants.
Coming in 2012 as a digital download, Pid allows players to bend gravity to their will in order to solve puzzles, defeat enemies, and traverse the beautiful world you just so happen to be stranded on. The game has all of the elements of a platformer. There are items to collect in the form of stars, complex puzzles to unlock, and larger-than-life bosses to encounter.
Thor, the god of thunder, has been revealed by Zen Studios as the fourth and final table of the upcoming Vengeance and Virtue DLC pack for Marvel Pinball, joining the likes of Ghost Rider, Professor Xavier and the X-Men, and Moon Knight.
Rockstar Games has announced the Max Payne Special Edition that includes the game, still life art prints, bullet keychain, soundtrack, DLC, and collectible statue, all for around $100.
Available for pre-order from now until January 15th from select retailers, the Max Payne 3 Special Edition joins the long list of games that have upgraded themselves to more expensive, more content packed collector’s editions. Question is, is it all worth the extra money?
When it comes to the video game industry, the Call of Duty franchise reigns supreme, specifically the Modern Warfare series. How many other games can say they’ve sold millions of copies in a single day or had the biggest launch in entertainment history? Yeah, not many.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 continues to hunt for Russian Ultranationalist Vladimir Makarov in its main single-player campaign and further enhances its already top-notch multiplayer experience. Has the gameplay changed enough over the last iteration, or does the old “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” saying still ring true?
The original PlayStation fighting game Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors is headed to the PSN, announced Capcom today.
It’s been years since a proper Dalkstalkers release but Capcom has always made sure the franchise is never forgotten with its characters routinely making guest appearances in fighting games. Most recently, Morrigan, Felicia, and Hsien-ko all appeared in both versions of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Now, fans will have the opportunity to go back and play the game that started it all.
Dungeon Siege III was released to lukewarm reviews in June but the game is still going strong with fans of the dungeon crawling genre. For those of you who like to complete every quest and find every item, the Treasures of the Sun DLC opens an entirely new environment to explore; the Aranoi Desert. With it come an increased level cap, new abilities, and a new enchanting system.
Is this enough to once again venture into the deep dark caverns of the game, or has this Legion finally met his match?
