Just to clarify…

Just as a note from the Video Games Channel editor, Matt’s post came as a misunderstanding about the blog closing. There was a conversation about the blog’s progress, its future, and our hopes for its success, and Matt didn’t feel like he could devote more time to the blog due to his other commitments. As [...]

FPS Rantings runs out of ammo

Well folks. Due to a lack of traffic and readership, the powers that be have decided to close the pages of FPS Rantings.
It’s been fun and I hope you all enjoyed reading my thoughts and sarcasm regarding the genre of FPS games.
Anyways, take it easy and keep on playin.

Far Cry Vengeance for the Wiiiiiiiiiiiii..iiiiii..ii

In an addendum to the Metroid 3 post about FPS games being on the Wii, Far Cry was yet another attempt at pushing out the genre to Nintendo’s most fun (to say) console.
Sadly, it seems harder than it should be. While the other FPS game Red Steel didn’t do so well on the Wii due [...]

Half Life 2: Orange

What do you do when you’re snowed in and have already missed a day of work and are coming in late to the next day? Why you look at pretty pictures of course. No, not those kind of pictures. Evil Avatar has some new screenshots of the Half Life 2 Orange set. Which includes Half [...]

Don’t forget the obligatory colon and subtitle
:Corruption
As most of us know when Metroid Prime came out on the gamecube and they moved to the FPS oriented gameplay style, the folks at Retro pulled it off quite well and with the sequel they showed the Samus was enjoying her new view and we were too.
Now we [...]

Red Ocean

Of blood!!!!
I dunno. This German game might get a US release but they’re working on it. In an odd twist I almost hope they don’t push it out here. I mean, I’m sure it’s gonna cost them more money to do so and reading the article, seeing the screenshots and the weird little teaser trailer [...]

Warhound

Kinda funny, but when I saw the screenshots for this I thought to myself “Looks like the same engine that Call of Juarez used”. After a bit more digging, sure enough. It’s from the boys and girls at Techland. Those are the people who made Call of Juarez if you weren’t sure.
Warhound looks to be [...]

Power of Destruction

Rawr and…stuff. Always love those catchy game titles. This one is especially fun as it looks to be a bit more on the sucky side. While not your typical WWII shooter it’s one of those alternate reality ones. Hitler won the war and now they control everything. Then one day you wake up and decide [...]

Fields Ops Video Preview

Hexux TV has a narrative video of their first hands on experience with Field Ops. The game that’s combining RTS and FPS gameplay styles. For those of you interested in how this game is turning out I suggest you go and watch. There’s a nice little british gamer guy in the corner explaining everything and [...]

Looking back

Voodoo Extreme has a recent article on the top 20 games released for the “last gen” era for Windows. Among this list are several of our bread and butter “shoot em in the face” classics.
Coming in at 19 is our frat boy favorite Halo. At first I was rather surprised that this came in so [...]
