Resistance 2 sends out beta test invitations

According to Joystiq, invitations for the Resistance 2 private beta have already been sent out. If you didn’t get an email informing you that you’ve been chosen to participate, then you’re probably not a subscriber to Sony’s Qore, an online magazine that charges $3 per month. Funnily enough, being a Qore subscriber is no guarantee […]

Review: Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy

I’ll try to keep this short. After all, I’ve already given my impressions on Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy when I first played it in early July. Finishing the game didn’t exactly change the way I felt about it. Here’s the skinny:

OPM: Left 4 Dead is coming to the PS3

Update: Looks like Left 4 Dead isn’t coming to the PS3 at all. Valve’s Doug Lombardi told IGN that “There is no PS3 version of Left 4 Dead currently in production.” Ouch.

Resistance 2 boss may be one of the biggest there is

The new Resistance 2 gameplay video from GameVideos’ E3 coverage gives new meaning to the term “stage boss.” It’s is one of the biggest enemies I’ve ever seen, rivaling even those of Painkiller’s (see image).
According to the some details leaked online, the biggest boss in Resistance 2 is about 300 feet tall. The game is […]

Now Playing: The Bourne Conspiracy

The toughest part about Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy for the PS3 isn’t the game itself, but the problems in running the game. If the opening screen loads without a hitch, then it’s your lucky day. When loading levels, there’s always the danger of stalling that even a 30 million dollar agent can’t fix.

Resistance ending is not satisfying

I’ve finally gotten around to finishing Resistance: Fall of Man, thanks to the latest FragFX firmware. Buttons no longer bleed into each other so the shooting doesn’t devolve into an exercise in frustration. There’s much to be desired about the game’s ending, though.

The ending is made up of a short narrative, a rather long list […]

Rant: Metal Gear Online griefers are not your ordinary griefers

There are griefers, and there are Metal Gear Online griefers. The run-of-the-mill griefers do what they do because it’s actually rather fun in a sick, zit-popping, puppy-kicking kind of way. MGO griefers, on the other hand, are a new breed of dolts.

Killzone 2 video shows cover mechanics

Penny Arcade looks at PS3 Bioshock “hate”

We’ve all heard of Bioshock coming to the PlayStation 3 for the longest time. I’ve raised this issue at least a couple of occasions. When Penny Arcade brought up the notion that a number of staunch PS3 fans “hate” (or as the comic suggests, “feel a blend of semi-grudging acceptance and cautious enthusiasm”) the 2K-developed […]
