  • Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Hands-On Preview

    While most shooter fans liked what the Rainbow Six series did when it went to Vegas, some fans of tactical military shooters wished that series had stuck to its realistic roots. Well now Codemasters is bringing the Operation Flashpoint series to consoles with Dragon Rising, and while it won’t be a hardcore sim by any stretch of the...

  • Homefront Preview

    While some pundits, and the creators of South Park, view Kim Jong-il, the leader of North Korea to be a puppet-like bumbling fool, others view him as a clear and present danger to the United States and its allies. Clearly, the guys at KAOS Studios are among the latter camp (or they just think it makes an interest premise) because they’re...

  • Just Cause 2 Preview

    When the original Just Cause came out in 2006, it was a true guilty pleasure, an open-world third-person shooter that tossed reality to the wind like so many ’80s action flicks. Now a sequel is being readied for release by Eidos next year on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, and if our look at the game today at E3 showed us anything,...

  • DiRT 2 Preview

    It may not be called DiRT 2: Electric Boogaloo, but for fans of realistic offroad racing games, there is something electrifying about this upcoming driving game from Codemasters. Slated to be released this September on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii, DS, and PC, the game is promising to offer more of the great road-less racing driving...

  • Sony Working On UMD Transfer Service For PSP Go

    If you are someone up to your neck in PSP UMDs, then you might have been a bit bummed out when Sony finally (and unsurprisingly) revealed its new UMD-less PSP go at E3 2009 on Tuesday. Then again, you’d probably have to be a major tech fiend to want to own both a PSP and a PSP go, but Sony apparently anticipates this group of people to be...

  • Developer Rare Has Been Instrumental In Project Natal's Development, Says Microsoft

    Despite Major Nelson's somewhat under-the-radar announcement that Rare’s sci-fi FPS Perfect Dark for N64 will be released on XBLA this winter, developer Rare had virtually no presence at E3 2009 whatsoever. And yet, the company was virtually present the entire time. Wha-wha-whaaaat?! Microsoft’s vice-president Shane Kim told Kotaku...

  • Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny E3 2009 Hands-On Impressions

    Before we get started, yes, God of War’s blood-thirsty protagonist Kratos is appearing in Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny for PSP. No, I didn’t get a chance to play as Kratos during my hands-on time with the game at E3 2009. Sad, I know, but that’s how things go sometimes. Fortunately, the game (at least the portion that I saw) is...

  • A Boy And His Blob Preview

    I’m going to tell you about the best game feature I saw at this year’s E3. It wasn’t a new weapon in one of the countless brown-tinted shooters and realistic war simulators at the show, and it wasn’t a spell-casting wheel in an epic, sweeping RPG fantasy. Those games were nice, and innovative and complex and graphically...

  • Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Preview

    Konami could be producing my favorite Silent Hill since the original -- ironic, given Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a remake (they're calling it a "reimagining") of the first journey to the foggy ocean town. Konami enlisted Climax, the same European studio who produced Silent Hill: Origins (a game I didn't actually play) on PSP,...

  • Left 4 Dead 2 E3 09 Gameplay Trailers

    I'm going to write this post very quietly as right now, I'm typing past a witch. Turn off your flashlight! Jeez, what are you doing? Are you trying to get us all killed? Ok, so now that I'm whisper-typing, which is a term that I just made up, I'm going to give you the lowdown on these seven separate Left 4 Dead 2 gameplay trailers we acquired...

  • Order of War Preview

    Die-hard fans of real-time strategy games may disagree with me, but I've felt like the genre has been due for something of a new approach for some time. So I'm definitely intrigued by Order of War, the World War II-themed RTS due on PC from Square Enix this Fall. Order of War Trailer Watch Larger Version | Watch HD Version Though it might...

  • Trauma Team First-Look Preview

    The Trauma Center series has delivered blood and guts to Nintendo platforms since the launch of Under the Knife for the DS in 2005, and really came to prominence when Second Opinion was released as a launch game for the Wii. Using a series of minigame-style scenes, players would operate on patients with a variety of ailments, accompanied by a...
