Upcoming FPS games for 2006

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

It’s great to feel so popular.
Or rather, to write about a popular genre.
I was never popular.
Sorry.
I won’t make the mistake of confusing the two again.
Anyways IGN has a list of upcoming FPS games for 2006. It’s not a huge list but it definitely highlights a few of the big up and […]

Time Shift Demo

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

I saw a video trailer for this and it looked rather nifty. Rather than slowing time, you just stop it. Hahah. Whatcha gonna do now Neo!?
Sorry. The game looks really nice and in addtion to stopping time you get the slow option, make it go backwards. It’s like a VCR. Do you kids still remember […]

Condemned Criminal Origins

Monday, January 30th, 2006

And this one will wrap up the last of the FPS games I’ve tried out for the Xbox 360 so far. This one, actually held my co-w0rker Don and mine’s attention for a little bit longer. There seemed to be a storyline that was beginning to develop, I still couldn’t hear a damn word that […]

The Onion strikes again

Saturday, January 28th, 2006

The guys over at The Onion have once again hit the mark with their riveting, gripping and truth-revealing stories. This time they took the story of Take-two’s new interactive game “Stacker” and really made it something worth reading. They interview both sides and get the full story without pulling any punches. Stacker looks to be […]

Perfect Dark Zero

Friday, January 27th, 2006

Zero. Well atleast the game knows it.
I boot up the game. Watch the screaming James Bond intro. Seriously. If Ms. Dark had been nude it would have been a killer James Bond opener. After having my brain maligned by that, I get into the game and immediately see “Co-op” And think. OHH SWEET. This game […]

King Kong

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

So with our new toy at work, I got to try out King Kong for the xbox. I had stayed late after work in order to get some time on it without infringing on my other..”duties” and one of my work buds decided that he had had enough work for the time being and came […]

Yay Xbox!

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

So here at my office, an Xbox 360 was magically procured and we had the fun of setting it up in one of the conference rooms for general amusement and merriment. It came with a few games. Tried a little Quake 4, but it was too dark and people couldn’t see anything. So we popped […]

Gene Troopers Interview

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

Yes! Now you too can explore your fantasies of fighting hordes of evil as you collect different strands of denim in order to combine them into the perfect pair of jeans!!! (A must have for you ladies)
No?
Fine.
Folks over at GameCloud did an interview with the HR manager of Cauldron, the folks bringing us the game […]

Planetside Free?

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006

As we all know, Planetside hasn’t been doing to well. My roommate got an e-mail from them recently letting him reactive his account for a free month or something. I, however, got no such e-mail. Hmph. Their official forums seem to be planning a bit more.
What do you do when your game isn’t doing well […]

Uber Soldier

Monday, January 23rd, 2006

I remember having seen a video of this somewhere. I can’t remember where though. It didn’t look too bad. The blood effect on the screen, while somewhat novel, looked like it just got in the way. Yes, my screen is bloody from my own body and possibly that of the thousand other evil Nazis I […]
