Finally, a good look at Killer is Dead's gameplay. The first video here shows off some of the fighting mechanics with your sword and robotic gun arm. Plus we also get to see a boss fight against Hamadayama that starts off wi...

Deadpool is off visiting the Marvel HQ to promote the Deadpool game. You know, because the Marvel headquarters totally needs to be reminded about his game. Still, it makes for some nice funny bits as he harasses the various ...
A return to true survival horror. That's what Shinji Mikami, father of Resident Evil, and his new studio, Tango Gameworks, aims to do with The Evil Within. I saw the game in action at an E3 pre-show recently, and they've certainly nailed down the horror aspect.
The overall design structure of the The Evil Within reminded me a lot of Resident Evil 4's. Mix in the nightmarish creatures that would be right at home in the Silent Hill series with the set pieces from the Saw franchise and you have yourself a nightmarish cocktail of pure terror.
Insomniac turned a lot of heads when it first revealed Overstrike -- a colorful, cartoony, over-the-top cooperative shooter that looked promisingly hilarious. Even more heads turned, but for entirely the wrong reasons, when Overstrike mutated into Fuse -- a new and toned down version that took itself more seriously and, to be quite fair, looked considerably less interesting.
While the cynical among us saw Overstrike as yet another victim of the heavily focus-tested, leader following, perpetually terrified mainstream game industry, Insomniac worked hard to assure gamers Fuse would be as exciting and amusing as the original incarnation promised.
I wish I could say we were wrong and Insomniac was right. I can't. Fuse is everything we expected ... and less.
The latest barrage of screens for Killer is Dead focuses on two of the bosses you'll encounter in the game. First there's Hamadayama, who rides around on a freaking tiger. Yes, a tiger. How badass is that? Then there's Samura...
Watch Dogs is a pretty cool game, and if you think you're going to be picking this one up then you may want to take advantage of these pre-order bonuses. GameStop will give you the Palace Pack, which includes an investigation...
Watch Dogs is giving us a huge open world full of life, all alongside some innovative new multiplayer concepts. And it's all thanks to the new Disrupt engine. The team had some grand visions they wanted to pull off when they ...
First and foremost, Watch Dogs offers a full single-player experience that you can play offline. That said, I have no intentions of playing offline as the connected experience sounds very promising. Did you know we've actu...
Watch Dogs has been on everyone's radar ever since its surprise debut at E3 last year. It's an open world game, but what makes this one so unique is that you play as Aiden Pearce, an expert hacker who can control the connected city of Chicago right in the palm of his hands.
Anything that's electronic or connected online can be controlled with ease, and with this power Aiden will use whatever means necessary to get revenge on those that have wronged him. At the same time, Aiden becomes sort of a vigilante for the city of Chicago, and your actions will have an impact upon the game's world.
Those of you worried about story spoilers need not fear, as Ubisoft ran us through a live demo that merely consisted of exploring the open world environment to show us just how much future Chicago can offer players.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will see the return of Spies vs. Mercs. If that news didn't get you excited at all then maybe this live-action take by the gang at CorridorDigital will. Their film production and editing keeps getting better with every video, and I'm beyond impressed with their latest efforts.
Some lucky folks got a hold of an early uncut version of Conker's Bad Fur Day. The final version of the game removed a bunch of stuff, such as a squirrel getting operated by two Tediz while still conscious.
So what els...
Deadpool has been a favorite of mine ever since I got into Marvel comics years ago. So I was pretty delighted when High Moon Studios announced it'd be working on a Deadpool game. The studio has done a rather good job with the Transformers license, and for the most part Deadpool: The Game is pretty decent based on what I got to play recently.
Basically, imagine DmC's combat mechanics, but just not as polished. Don't get me wrong, I liked my time with Deadpool and know I'll enjoy the game when it's released, but I think you're going to have to be a Marvel fan in general to appreciate this one.
A forum poster by the name of Borman over on the Assembler Games forums has in his possession both a PAL and NTSC beta copy of Perfect Dark, and a build as well as a demo version of Conker's Bad Fur Day.
Most notable here is...
Since Gears of War 3, Epic Games has not been afraid to squeeze every last cent out of its customer base through premium maps and skins for characters and weapons. Don't get me wrong, I still consider the All Fronts DLC pack for Gears of War 2 to be one of the best available for any game. The amount of replay value that my friends and I got out of all of those maps was well worth the 800 Microsoft Points.
With Gears of War: Judgment's Call to Arms, however, Epic and People Can Fly are only giving us a sparse amount of new content -- for a game that already didn't have a lot of multiplayer variety to begin with.
While quantity does not always equal quality, in this case, it wouldn't have hurt to give the fans more.
Confession time ladies and gents: I'm not a big Splinter Cell fan. I didn't much get into the first two, had an inexplicable obsession with Chaos Theory, largely passed on Double Agent, and only dabbled in Conviction.
A disgrace, I know, and a dry spell I'm increasingly tempted to break with Splinter Cell: Blacklist. It's shaping to be the biggest Splinter Cell game yet. We've seen the campaign at length, and not to be outdone, the multiplayer is bringing back Conviction's acclaimed cooperative mode, as well as the return of the fan favorite Spies vs. Mercs.
