Rakion patch adds even more features

Mobius and Softnyx yesterday rolled out “From Dusk till Dawn,” across Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. No, it’s not that old George Clooney vampire flick. From Dusk till Dawn is a new Rakion patch that adds new features to the online action game.

No, you’re not doing a take-two. If you remember seeing a new […]

Unreal Tournament 3 hands-on impressions

If I’m not sucking blood in nightclubs and shooting zombies on the head, I’m spending quality time with the Unreal Tournament 3 demo, which is now available for download. I chose to prioritize it over the Call of Duty 4 demo (which is also available) because of one very important reason: size.

Size alone is […]

The Backlog Files: Vampires and shooters work, but severed arms don’t

What’s a gamer got to do when he’s waiting for Gears of War for the PC? He works on his backlog of unfinished games, that’s what. Ever since my PC upgrade, I’ve been steadily eliminating my list and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines is one of them.

Bloodlines is a three-year-old RPG/FPS that I put […]

You don’t know Jericho: Meet Billie Church

Another game I’m looking forward to is Clive Barker’s Jericho, which is scheduled to come out on the 23rd this month. Like his previous foray into games, Clive Barker made Jericho a first-person shooter. This time, there’s a twist: you control multiple members of a special ops team. Yes, the previous “special” abilities similar to […]

NBA’s Gilbert Arenas cheats at Halo 3

Don’t get cute, Agent Zero. It looks like Gilbert Arenas, guard and outspoken (yet unofficial) mascot of the Washington Wizards, has been busted for cheating at Halo 3 in Xbox Live.

The geeks at the Halo 3 forum revealed that Gilbert racks up his rank by joining up with a friend, then have his other […]

Call of Duty 4 for the DS might not suck like other handheld shooters

The last major shooter franchise that graced the DS left a bad aftertaste. Sure, Brothers in Arms looked pretty, its levels were of considerable size for a handheld game, and the explosions are a visual treat. Those are good stuff that you’d notice when you watch the trailers, but things start getting ugly when you […]

Master Chief does Mario in Super Halo Brothers

Yes, the video is indeed fascinating. What’s surprising is that someone took the time to make it.

Thanks to Patrick, the Ironic Gamer, for the tip.

Kwari’s visuals may end up looking up-to-date

I don’t normally retract my statements, but when I viewed a trailer showing off Kwari’s levels, I realized that I may be wrong about the game looking circa 1999. I may not have seen any 3D character models yet, but bear with me and watch the clip below:

Is it just me, or are the shaders […]

More Gears of War action can be seen in new clip

If you’re mad about Gears of War like I am, then you’d love me for posting a new video clip showing some satisfying action. According to GameTrailers’ description, the montage shows the new content that’s exclusive to Gears’ PC version. Enjoy the carnage and cussing.

I just can’t help but notice that while it’s […]

Half-Life 2: Episode Two lets you enjoy a joyride with Alyx

That’s right–you can drive around huge open spaces with Eli Vance’s hot daughter. Wanna see how it looks? Of course you do. Watch the video below:

I’m just surprised how the gal manages to stay in the vehicle even without wearing a seatbelt.
