Heavy Fire: Afghanistan releasing in November

It's disappointing that games Medal of Honor and Six Days in Fallujah get punished for authenticity, yet things like Heavy Fire: Afghanistan are allowed to exist. We may never see that tasteful, yet horrifying depiction of Operati...

1C Company brings screenshots of Theatre of War 2: Korea

Medal of Honor 'not necessarily pushing the genre forward'

You’d think that EA would be doing its best to separate Medal of Honor from the pack in a very crowded first-person shooter market. The team at EA Los Angeles is, indeed, working to make the game stand out, but the experience is not l...

New Darksiders trailer may be generic, but it gets my vote

Poor Darksiders: Wrath of War just can't catch a break -- the game's no where near being released (it's slated for August 25), and the general around the internet seems to be that it's just too generic to stand out. After all it's going to ...
