Crysis 2 on Xbox 360 Looks Excellent

If there is one thing the launch and subsequent existence of the Xbox 360 and PS3 have taught me: Impressive specs mean very little. You could say the Nintendo Wii and gaming on the iPhone showed us that, but I would argue that with all the chest-puffing Sony did over the PS3 and eventual graphical […]

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (Xbox 360) Review

Introduction Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is Ninja Theory’s 2nd epic adventure after their landmark 2007 PS3-exclusive, Heavenly Sword. Enslaved has all the ear-marks of an epic Ninja Theory adventure except some weak character interactions and budget constraints near the end don’t bolster the title into an edge of your seat adventure like it could […]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Looks Excellent

With a God of War heritage and MercurySteam’s unexpected talent at creating graphical marvels, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is shaping up to look like a beautiful launch for October. My first interaction with MercurySteam’s was their work on developing Clive Barker’s Jericho. As much as I liked the story (I’m a horror fan) and was […]

Walmart Taking $199 Preorders for Xbox 360 Kinect

Since E3 everyone has been speculating what the Microsoft Kinect (originally called Natal… the video-motion-control stuff) with most pundits agreeing that anything over $99 was going to back Microsoft into a nasty corner of “new tech that no one wants”.

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 […]

New Prince of Persia "Story Trailer"

This was actually a really good trailer. Alot of times when developers try and sell this epic adventure storyline, it falls flat. Personally, I’m not to interested in playing the boring artsy game that tries to validate the industry when I could be having tons of fun playing a mindless shooter like Gears of War […]

Left 4 Dead, Level 2 Gameplay Video

Andrew Burnes over at VE3D has thrown up 26mins of Left 4 Dead gameplay video from the demo. I found the following bit of gameplay the most representative of the environments, scenarios and team-dynamic going on in that title: I’ll admit, the first time I saw Left 4 Dead demoed (maybe a year ago?) I […]

Xbox Live Poll Shows Support for Obama

According to the data released by Microsoft’s gamerscore blog, Senator Barack Obama is the favorite among Xbox 360 owners in the race for the white house. The presidential hopeful and his running mate Joe Biden are leading the McCain/Palin camp by twenty percent. While this doesn’t reflect all of America, I do believe that this […]

Dead Space (Xbox 360) Review

Summary [9.0 out of 10] While mildly repetitive, Dead Space is one of the most surprising games this year. Not only has it redefined the control scheme made famous in Resident Evil 4, but it has also proven its self worthy of being crowned the best horror game of all time. Introduction In 1999, Konami […]
