Halo 4 PAX Prime 2011 Panel Recap --  The Foundation And

According to a poll conducted by Nielsen, the most eagerly anticipated games for 2012 are Halo 4 and Assassin's Creed 3.  If you asked me this question, I'd say BioShock Infinite and Max Payne 3, so apparently I'm pretty average.

The "anticipation level" among gaming consumers was derived from combining eight key consumer metrics, including Awareness and Purchase Interest, into one overall score. That score was then compared to scores from all previous games released on the same platform, to determine the percentile ranking of the upcoming title. Some of these games will get release dates and more info at E3 2012.

Check under the "Read More" tag for the top ten most anticipated titles for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii.

Men In Black: Alien Crisis Release Date Announced

Activision's Men In Black: Alien Crisis' release date has been announced. Get ready to experience ultimate alien-zapping on May 22, 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii, three days before the release of Men in Black 3, the movie. Men in Black: Alien Crisis will feature Peter Delacoeur, a MIB agent who's training to find aliens who are planning to destroy the Earth. Pesky aliens, go back to Mars where you belong.

We don't have too many details on the game yet, but so far it seems there will be two different types of gameplay in MIB: Alien Crisis. In one you'll have to dodge guards and surveillance cameras in order to ambush confidential alien intelligence. Alternatively, you'll also have to stop alien attacks. If you have a Wii Zapper or a PlayStation Move sharp shooter peripheral you'll get to dust them off, as they're both compatible with the game.

I'll have to wait for more details on the game to emerge before I pass judgement, but I'm a fan of the Men in Black series itself. What do you think? Are you going to run out and pick up the latest Men in Black video game?

Wii U E3 2011

According to an email obtained by WiiUDaily, supposedly from a well-known Japanese retailer, Nintendo's Wii U will hit shelves on November 18, 2012 in the U.S. and a week later in Japan.

While Nintendo has publicly said the Wii U would be out in fall 2012, the exact date has not been announced. Judging from the mid-November release of the Wii six years ago, it's definitely a plausible rumor, maybe even likely.  Although, it's unclear from the source of this rumor whether the November 18 release date is an internal target date for Nintendo, or whether the company has committed to releasing the Wii U to the public on this date.

"Oswald comes with his own set of abilities, including his remote control that can send out electrical jolts, and a 'Boom-arm-erang' where he takes his own arm off and tosses it out boomerang-style. Oswald also has the ability to use his ears like helicopter blades and hover. If you partner up with Mickey, Oswald can jump in the air while Mickey reaches up and grabs hold of his legs, allowing you to traverse short distances while airborne."

We've seen Ada's death scene in Resident Evil games at least three times since the 1998 release of Resident Evil 2, so we thought we'd take these three death scenes that span the years and cut them together into one, amazing Rashomon-style look at Ada dying. 

The videos are taken from Resident Evil 2 on the PlayStation, Resident Evil: Dark Side Chronicles on the Wii and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon Cityon the Xbox 360. Check it out:

If that's not enough Resident Evil history for you, check out the similar take we did on Hunk stealing the G-Virus.




The goal of playing video games for a living often begins with becoming a game tester, whether you want to end up being a designer, programmer or executive producer. This is the best way to get your foot in the door and demonstrate that you can not only play games, but have a knack for attention to detail.

How to Become a Video Game Tester : G4U

That’s exactly the advice of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 QA Project Lead Jeff Roper. “The basic characteristics managers look for would be a fundamental love and passion for video games,” he says. “Other important characteristics would be an eye for detail, critical thinking and the ability to stay focused throughout. Of course, being a team player and getting along with your fellow co-workers is also important.”

Disney Epic Mickey 2 Announced: Co-Op, Multiplatform And Song And Dance Numbers!

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two has officially been revealed, and it will feature co-op gameplay, a multiplatform release, voiced characters and even musical numbers! It's coming out this fall.

According to creator Warren Spector, speaking to The Associate Press, Epic Mickey 2 will be released on the PlayStation 3, Wii and 360, and will feature a drop-in, drop-out co-op mode that puts players in control of either Mickey or Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

Mickey will wield the paintbrush and paint thinner from the first game, while Oswald will work with a remote control that can command electricity. When playing single-player, Oswald will still be in the game, presumably as an AI-controlled buddy.

EA Sports MMA

Electronic Arts is going to be shutting down the multiplayer servers and online services for a number of its online-enabled games on April 13, 2012, including one which uses the publisher's controversial Online Pass. That game is EA Sports MMA, released on October 19, 2010, though the most recently released title on the list -- Spare Parts -- was out on January 11.

The statement on EA's Online Service Updates page is pretty clear about why these shutdowns happen: "...as games get replaced with newer titles, the number of players still enjoying the older games dwindles to a level -- fewer than 1% of all peak online players across all EA titles -- where it’s no longer feasible to continue the behind-the-scenes work involved with keeping these games up and running."

Low traffic or not though, how soon is "too soon" for a server shutdown? And is it really fair to turn off the servers on a game that any number of players could have separately purchased Online Pass access for?

LEGO Batman 2

We've got a preview of Lego Batman 2 for you enjoy! Once you've finished checking out the new Lego Batman 2 gameplay video, you've gotta read up on the game. The great Kevin "Minifig" Kelly got to check out the game recently, and was impressed not just with the Batman, but with the variety of other super-hero pals he'll have in the game.

Check out this taste of our Lego Batman 2 preview:

"Superman is just one of the new heroes coming to LEGO Batman 2, and although we only saw Batman, Robin, and Superman in the demo, in the menu screens we caught a glimpse of the Flash, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and others, and develop Traveller’s Tales promises that there will be over 50 DC Comic characters in the final game, though it’s not clear how many of those you’ll actually be able to play."

Transformers Prime Announcement Trailer »


A new Transformers game, Transformers Prime, is coming. The game is a brawler aimed primarily at younger gamers, as it's based on the Transformers Prime cartoon, not the movies .It will be released on the Wii and Nintendo DS later this year.

"Hasbro Studios has done a phenomenal job with the Transformers Prime television show," said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing. "We are collaborating closely with the series creators to capture all the adventure, humor and friendships from the show to create an authentic action experience for Transformers fans of all ages to enjoy."

If you're a more "mature" Transformers fan, you'll want to try Transformers: Fall of Cybertron which is also coming out later this year for the PS3 and the 360.
