Condemned: Criminal Origins holds up better than expected

When I think back to the Xbox 360 launch, a few games immediately come to mind: Kameo, Project Gotham Racing 3, and Perfect Dark Zero. You had to take what you could get in late 2005 and hope your console didn't red ring. Min...

Get nostalgic for Portland Retro Gaming Expo with these lovely photos
by Max Scoville

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, perhaps you attended the fifth annual Portland Retro Gaming Expo which took place the weekend before last. If you didn't, well -- here's a lovely pile of photos that the talented Geoffrey Smith II was kind enough to take for us at this celebration of gaming from the days of yore, featuring cosplayers, special guests, and lots of games that require you to insert coins and/or blow on them to make them work.

Sega fans, you should be watching the SeHa Girls anime

The first episode of the new Sega-themed anime Hi*sCool! SeHa Girls has launched. As a diehard Sega fan, and a gamer that still uses his Sega consoles, I watched this adaptation of a ridiculous light novel weekend and loved ...

Very Quick Tips: Alien: Isolation photo
Very Quick Tips: Alien: Isolation
by Chris Carter

That Xenomorph can be one tricky asshole in Alien: Isolation. One time it walked out of a room, waited a second, then turned back around to find me awkwardly climbing out of the cabinet I had been hiding in.

What a dick. Here's how to avoid that situation and more.

I got chills from the music in this Alien: Isolation launch trailer

Man, there sure have been a lot of Alien: Isolation videos lately. I guess that's the rote cycle of triple-A games marketing. Here's one more. But, this launch trailer may be better than all the other ones that have rel...

Review: Alien: Isolation photo
Review: Alien: Isolation
by Chris Carter

From the old school "20th Century Fox" opening to the first few seconds, Alien: Isolation wants you to know that it takes after the first film from the series it was based on. One alien, one spaceship, one chance at survival.

This is the game we should have gotten from Gearbox.

Uber is giving Sonic Boom Rides at New York Comic-Con

Playing Alien: Isolation on a convention floor isn't the best idea

Demoing a game like Alien: Isolation at a convention such as EGX or PAX has always been problematic since horror works best when there's time for quieter moments between the scares. There has to be a period of tension buildin...

Something's stalking us in Alien: Isolation's television ad

The latest piece of media for Creative Assembly's impending Alien: Isolation prods "How will you survive?" It's a fair question. With that hulking Xenomorph nimbly crawling out of the airshaft, stalking its prey before terrifyingly ending its life, it'll certainly be a tough task. When the game releases on October 7, the most likely answer will probably be "There's a good chance we won't."

Game music fans: You've gotta watch Diggin' In The Carts

Have you heard of Diggin' In The Carts? This is a documentary series on Japanese videogame music, from Red Bull Music Academy. Episode 4, titled "The Cool Kid," was fantastic. It's all about vintage Sega game music, focusing ...
