BloodRayne: Betrayal Screenshots

Some screenshots from the upcoming BloodRayne: Betrayal arcade reboot of the BloodRayne franchise for PSN and XBLA.

Two Worlds II: Pirates of the Flying Fortress Screenshots

TW2 is really coming together, they just sent in another batch of screenshots for the Pirates of the Flying Fortress release and things look sharp. If you’d like to see TWII in action, it looks a lot like Witcher 2 crossed with Age of Conan; in the sense that it has the MMORPG feel to [...]

Anti-Aliasing in Java 2D is an Expensive Operation

This post is more of an aside or random observation and it likely only effects folks trying to do animation or games with Java; normal folks using Swing, probably won’t care. I was just playing around running some of the old-ass JFC demos that come with the JDK on my machine; something I’ve done over [...]

The UnderGarden (Xbox Live Arcade) Review

Summary The UnderGarden is a cute, artistic and calming romp through a bioluminescent underwater world full of dormant plants that you need to repopulate. The only challenges you encounter in the game are physics puzzles that must be solved to continue through the level. The use of simple, tonal music combined with the colorful flora [...]

Mafia II Release Party Planning

Mafia 2 is coming out August 24th, that’s in 6 days. We will explain why you should care… Almost 8 years ago to the day, the original Mafia was released for the PC. It was, in our opinion, the best game of 2002 and a sleeper hit that garner none of the attention it deserved. [...]

Alan Wake on Xbox 360 Looks Bad

I picked up Alan Wake for the Xbox 360 yesterday and I have to say: good lord are the textures crumby. The entire game looks “muddy” or “washed out”, depending on if you are in a light or dark scene. What is so disappointing about this is that you can tell with the right horsepower [...]

After seeing CryENGINE at work with games like Crysis, Crysis: Warhead and Crysis 2, I’ve always wondered “Why don’t more MMOs use this engine to create incredible realistic worlds that I can adventure around in?” I mean, jesus, just look at this completely dialed out screenshot from Crysis 2 on max quality setting:

Crysis 2 Screenshots – No More Jungles

VE got a dump of “in-game” Crysis 2 screenshots from the Crysis 2 team that are looking bee-a-u-tiful. As amazed as I was at the Jungle scenes in Crysis, Warhead, Far Cry and Far Cry 2 (different Engine) I was always wondering “what would happen if you took this insane graphic prowess and rendered urban [...]

Splatterhouse PS3 Screenshots

GameInfoWire got the dump of recent Splatterhouse PS3 screenshots and we are loving it – gore everywhere. It looks like Rick (the hulking main character) shows damage real-time in the form of actual crippling injuries to his body that we have to assume regenerate by some means or else he dies. Above you see Rick [...]

BioShock 2 (PC) Review

Summary [8 out of 10] True-to-form I ran through BioShock 1 for the first time in preparation for BioShock 2, and last night I finally wrapped up BioShock 2 (fighting through the keybinding bugs on the PC) and found it to be an excellent continuation of the BioShock story, feeling very much like the first one [...]

Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days Screenshots

At first glance I thought these screenshots were grabbed via cam, but upon further glancing at some of the other screenshots they look flat-out grainy, almost like they were grabbed from the Wii: Click to see the full version of that screenshot and look at Kane’s beard, it’s not fuzzy it’s just really detail-less and [...]

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Screenshots

Well it’s coming and everyone is waiting for it, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2, so we figured we’d put up as many screenshots as we could find that were tasty.

Dragon Age: Origins Villages, Environments and World Screenshots

Most of the Dragon Age: Origins screenshots we’ve seen up until now have focused primarily on battle and the party in the game. That is why I was excited when an environments-only screenshot pack dropped in our lab tonight. These screenshots show of the world that Dragon Age: Origins takes place in. The type of [...]
