E3 2010




Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days

The original may not have set the world on fire, but IO Interactive's sequel, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, is poised to recapture action fans this August with a host of multiplayer modes. But what about those who like to play solo? Patrick Klepek spent some time with the single-player focused Arcade mode, and found it quite appealing:

"...if you enjoy the occasional multiplayer match but don't want to deal with actual people (common amongst some of my friends), Arcade can scratch that itch."

For more Arcade impressions, read our Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days preview from E3 2010.




E3 2010: Dead Space 2 Interview »


More nightmares are on our way in Dead Space 2. We caught up with Creative Director Wright Bagwell to learn where the game picks up after Dead Space and what sort of horrifying monsters are in store for us. Looks like I won't be sleeping well anytime soon.





E3 2010: Rock Band 3 Interview »


New peripherals! New songs! New gameplay features! It's like a dream come true. Rock Band 3 promises to be the ultimate music game, as we found out from E3 2010. Check out our interview with Dan Teasdale about what fans can expect from the game.




Ahh! Look behind you! Kevin Kelly went underground with the dev team behind Red Faction Armageddon to learn more about the sequel, such as its super awesome weapons.

"For instance, why would you want to swing away at a building when you can use the new Magnet Gun? Pop a shot at anything, and it attaches a magnet to it. Fire a second shot at anything, and a second magnet gets attached to that. And what do magnets do? They attract. Whatever you've tagged first will haul itself over to the second magnet, and cause a ton of destruction in the process."

Why can't they make this stuff in real life? Read his E3 2010 Red Faction Armageddon preview.

FIFA 11 Preview 2

With the World Cup still going on, there's no better time to become a true football fan than now. Resident soccer expert Sterling McGarvey learned about a new player type feature in the upcoming FIFA Soccer 11.

"This year, the team has pinpointed the attributes of the world’s best players and plan to imbue their personalities into the game. It goes for play style, animation, and physical size. The team has tripled the number of player types and sizes to make them fit real people more accurately."

E3 2010: Metroid: Other M E3 Trailer »


Samus returns in Nintendo's Metroid: Other M, and we strapped in at E3 to get our latest impressions of the game.  Here's a sliver:

"It’s a gorgeous and colorful game, from what I can tell, and I’m excited to play it."

Just a sliver! For the rest, you'll want to read our E3 2010: Metroid: Other M preview.







For those of you waiting for Mafia II to finally come around, your patience will be rewarded soon. Patrick Klepek checked the latest version of the game at E3 2010

"Mafia II has come a long ways since the first time I saw the game, just over a year ago. Back then, the game's first presentation to the press, the sequel was looking pretty rough...Though the frame rate could still use some tightening up, there's time for that to be addressed and it was heartening that the hands-on mission available was much more polished than anything else I'd seen of Mafia II prior."

Find out more in his Mafia II E3 2010 preview.



 

One of Microsoft Kinect's launch titles, Kinect Sports is a motion-controlled mini-game collection that will keep you active and competitive, and we've got a preview direct from the show floor at E3 2010.

According to G4tv.com's Jake Gaskill:

"Microsoft had no choice but to create their own version of Wii Sports to introduce players to the Kinect’s capabilities, and this collection looks like a solid enough title that will do just that. "

Read Jake's whole preview of Kinect Sports here.


E3 2010: Motorstorm Apocalypse E3 Trailer »


It's the end of the world! Perfect time to go racing, especially if it's anything like MotorStorm Apocalypse. Sterling McGarvey got some hands-on time with the game, and gushed:

"It’s got the same white-knuckle racing as past games, but the urban chaos (factored in with 3D, if you’ve got the setup) adds a new layer of intensity."

If you approve of new layers of intensity, check out our E3 2010: MotorStorm Apocalypse preview.

E3 2010: Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit E3 Trailer »


Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit was big enough for EA to open their E3 2010 press conference with the new trailer. Sterling McGarvey was able to learn more about the Autolog feature that brings a more social aspect to the game.

"Autolog is all about connectivity, and it seems more designed for interaction between you and your friends than with the greater global community. It seems like a game that’s constantly about staying connected to the Internet, but minus the unfiltered elements that have made online gaming a bit less savory."

Learn more about what Autolog can do in his Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit preview from E3 2010.




A kingdom has been torn asunder, and you're responsible for rebuilding the great Legion. Jake Gaskill was able to check out the amazing graphics in Dungeon Siege 3 at E3 2010, as well as two new features of integrated maps and co-op gameplay.

"Two of the biggest features Obsidian focused on for the demo were the idea of vistas and the game's jump in/jump out co-op. Vistas will play an important role in the game by serving as a way to orient players as they explore each new area...The co-op play was a nice surprise, and worked exactly as you'd expect. Whenever a friend wants to jump into the game to lend a hand, just hit a button, and poof, they're in."

Bulletstorm

Bulletstorm has been described as "Burnout with guns," but when TheFeed's Sterling McGarvey got his hands on the game at E3, he discovered something else:

"I’m not as sure that I agree with “Burnout with guns” as a descriptor. The irreverent (bordering on juvenile at times) humor, combined with score-based killing feels like a wedding of Serious Sam with The Club, and a measure of MadWorld thrown in. During an introductory video, a narrator broke down the fundamentals of Bulletstorm’s play with the sort of semi-enthusiastic delivery that we’ve all seen in EA games past and present."

E3 2010: Portal 2 Review - 1

GLaDOS is still alive! Jake Gaskill witnessed the new features in Portal 2 at E3 2010, such as the new multiplayer option. MULTIPLAYER. PORTAL. AHHH.

"Speaking of companions, Portal 2 will also feature a co-op multiplayer mode that stands as a completely separate experience from the single-player portion. It tells the story of two robots trying to make their way through Aperture Science just like Chell."

Check out his E3 2010 Portal 2 preview.






Attack 2

The classic arcade game is coming back, just in time for its 25th anniversary! Joe Rybicki played Rush'N Attack: Ex-Patriot at E3 2010 and found a game that would satisfy any action adventure fan.

A slick little game that mixes platforming elements with straight-up combat, with a few stealth elements thrown in. Using the Unreal Engine, Rush'N Attack: Ex-Patriot puts players in a side-scrolling world with multiple levels and branching pathways, and if that brings to mind Shadow Complex you're probably not far off.

Check out his E3 2010 Rush 'N Attack: Ex-Patriot preview.



E3 2010: Dance Central E3 Gameplay Trailer »


Not gonna lie. If there's one thing I like to do in the privacy of my own home, it's dancing badly in front of the television. Microsoft's Dance Central for Kinect fulfills that passion and Patrick Klepek gave the launch title a whirl on the dance floor himself.

"Dance Central smartly ditches the idea of having the game's avatar represent your own dance moves. The avatar on the screen is doing the moves right, making it look cool. Since the avatar isn't you, when you're flailing around in front of the camera, you don't feel as self-conscious."

Sounds perfect! Read the rest of his Dance Central preview from E3 2010.
