Resident Evil 5 demo shown off at TGS

Resident Evil 5 'TGS 2008 Demo' clip
More drool-worthy Tokyo Game Show videos coming your way. The video seems to be a co-op demo for Resident Evil 5, which thankfully, isn’t included in this year’s mad holiday rush. As you may have observed, the PlayStation 3 demo is in Japanese so it’s not clear whether the […]

Of course, in this busy season of game releases, let’s not forget Far Cry 2, which made its presence felt in this year’s Tokyo Games Show. With this year’s batch of great games, we wouldn’t be surprised if blood banks are flooded with donors.

1UP Show: Gears of War 2 Single Player Preview
There’s a new preview for Gears of War 2 over at 1UP, and it tackles the sequel’s single-player campaign. It’s interesting to see that the next installment presents some new sequences that break up the familiar cover-oriented gameplay the series is known for.

High ground gives advantage in Far Cry 2

There’s a new trailer for Far Cry 2 showing some more gameplay mechanics. This time, it’s about gaining the high ground to “win.” Unfortunately, all the advantage offered by high ground won’t be much help if you can’t shoot a lick.
Let me guess. Gamepad? No wonder.
For what it’s worth, this guy can shoot […]

The Conduit 'Features' trailer
It looks like the Wii is finally going to have another “hardcore” game. High Voltage Software, known for titles such as Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law (PS2, Wii, PSP) and Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude (PS2, PC, Xbox), is developing The Conduit for the Nintendo Wii. While the Wii may be […]

Video review: Crysis Warhead is still the best way to punish your PC

Aside from a growing list of must-have games, the other thing I’d like to have this coming holiday season is a beefy new PC that can run bleeding-edge FPSes Crysis and Crysis Warhead at maximum resolution and detail without any hitches. Fat chance of that happening, though.
The next best thing is to watch how GameTrailers […]

Call of Duty: World at War co-op gameplay seems to offer depth

More surprises by way of video. This time, the revelations come from Call of Duty: World at War, an upcoming first-person shooter that’s again set in World War II. While the setting may induce a lot of groans, the game does offer some interesting features for multiplayer, just like its predecessor, Call of […]

Surprise of the week: Yahtzee thinks Mercenaries 2 is “fun”

Here’s something I didn’t see coming—Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw, the grumpiest gaming curmudgeon that mocked so many games this side of Metal Gear Solid 4, has begrudgingly admitted that Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is fun. Yes, the AI is shit and the GTA clone sandbox game is full of bugs, but it’s still fun.
I was […]

Shellshock 2 morphs into a survival horror FPS

Remember Shellshock: Nam ‘67? It’s a reviled third-person shooter from Eidos that came out four years ago. There’s a sequel coming this December, but it isn’t quite the same game. Shellshock 2: Blood Trails has morphed into a survival horror FPS.
