Dead Space requires unlearning of headshots

It pays to look past the hype. Take Dead Space, EA’s upcoming survival-horror shooter, for example. The game has been publicized lately by “news” of being banned in several countries. If you take it against the game, there’s a chance you might tune out everything about Dead Space, including this interesting new video […]

Controls for Resistance: Retribution demonstrated

PlayStation 3 owners aren’t the only ones who’d get a chance to shoot up some Chimeras with the arrival of Resistance 2 on the Blu-ray console later this year. The pint-sized PSP is also getting some alien-busting action with Resistance: Retribution, a third-person shooter that’s slated to hit store shelves in spring 2009.

Resident Evil 5 is turning into a shooter

Speaking of Resident Evil 5, a new trailer for the survival-horror game was recently released and it’s looking mighty fine. The new Resident Evil is looking more and more “deliberately-paced shooter” than “scary action adventure game.” Want proof? Watch the trailer after the jump.

So Max Payne can dance

Our resident retro gaming nerd Joel recently showed us a hilarious video that just begs to be shared. It’s a clip of Max Payne from Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. It’s actually a good idea to use the second Max Payne because Finnish writer Sami Järvi’s lookalike has this permanent constipated look […]

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.

Watch the Resident Evil 5 producer interview

You’ve witnessed the new Resident Evil 5 trailer, but you’ll always have questions regarding the survival horror shooter. The next best thing is to watch this Jun Takeuchi interview about RE5’s new character and gameplay. Just who is Jun Takeuchi? If the titles Onimusha or Lost Planet mean anything to you, then you’ve seen the […]

Review: Mass Effect for the PC is one of the better ports

When one speaks of Bioware, the first thing that comes to mind are role-playing games. With critically-acclaimed titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Neverwinter Nights tucked under its belt, Bioware has truly established itself as one of the premiere RPG makers.
Mass Effect for the PC is the latest […]

Capcom sheds light on Resident Evil 5 release date

Remember the thrill you felt when you first heard about Resident Evil 5? At that time, GameCube owners were the only people enjoying Resident Evil 4, though the promise of a PlayStation 2 version was imminent. RE4 was critically acclaimed and with good reason; it was a reimagining of the franchise that had relied too […]

New MGO videos show how gameplay is like

Enjoying your access to the Metal Gear Online beta? I hope you are because the best we other mere mortals can do is drool at the sight of MGO videos. I’ve got a couple of new ones today. Watch them and be reminded of how excruciating it is to wait for June 12, the game’s […]

Kane & Lynch leaves a bad aftertaste

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is no stranger to controversy. Perhaps what would be remembered most about the third-person shooter is the chaos that it caused at GameSpot late last year. Then-executive editor Jeff Gerstmann came out with a very negative review of the game, which ended up being edited and its video review pulled […]

Kane & Lynch gets free DLC

Here’s something that could slip by your radar: Eidos said it will release four new downloadable maps for the Fragile Alliance multiplayer in Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. Like anything I enjoy downloading, the DLC will be free on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. Strangely, there was no mention if the free goodies would be […]

Army of Two is repetitive? What shooter isn’t?

I’ve never played Army of Two as of this writing, but Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw’s review gave me an idea on how the game plays out. Strangely, Croshaw sees homosexuality in almost every topic.
