Dark Souls II directors differ on how to tell story

After reading the Edge Online interview with Dark Souls II co-director Tomohiro Shibuya earlier this year, I was curious as to how the game's story would be told. He commented, "I’m hoping to make [story elements] a lit...

Forza Motorsport 5 is set to lead the next-gen pack

We'll start by saying that what we were able to see of Forza Motorsport 5 was not nearly enough. Though Turn 10's next game is slated to be a launch title for the Xbox One this fall, they were only offering a sneak peek at E3 2013. Still, what we saw was enough to know that we're in for something bigger and better with Forza 5.

I ran around and then died at E3

This was a historic year at E3. The 8th gen console wars have officially started, independent developers are infecting Sony like a disease that makes you feel awesome, the Xbone caught more heat than a Alabama volcano in the...

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is your new horror action comedy

Under Itagaki's watch, the Ninja Gaiden series was about big production values, precise action, and serious-face gameplay. Those days are over. With Inafune at the helm of this new Ninja Gaiden spin-off, the tone has gone th...

6180 The Moon has a complicated name

I'm going to be perfectly honest with you guys; I'm not super into puzzle-platformers anymore. There is something about them that just doesn't click with me like they did before. Except for 6180 The Moon. That game is rad.&n...

Samus doesn't mind having no game at E3 this year

In a sectioned off outer space section of E3, I bumped into none other than Samus Aran. She was keeping it really, doing whatever, and having a pretty good time. I figured she'd feel left out, what with Nintendo ignoring her...

Luigi the Kaiju in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team

Funny thing about the 3DS demo stations at this year's and last year's E3: they were mobile. And I don't mean they were attached to rolling podiums. Nintendo hired a bunch of girls to walk around the floor with 3DS units fast...

Rest your weary bones with Devolver Digital

There were some strange goings on across the street from E3 this year. Girls were dancing in a tent all day for some reason, Ouya was having some sort of party, and Devolver Digital rented some mini-trailers homes to sh...

It's Deadfall Adventures Time!

UPDATE: Deadfall Adventures will be $39.99 on PC and $49.99 on X360, not $60. Deadfall Adventures may seem like an Indiana Jones or Uncharted rip-off, however the game is doing the exact opposite: it is engrained in the ...

PS4's DC Universe Online, PlanetSide 2 won't need PS Plus

[Update: Seems there was a bit of confusion and PlanetSide 2 will NOT be cross-compatible between PC and PS4. DC Universe Online is a still a go for cross play, however.] As amazing as the PS4 conference was, Sony was able to...

Killer Instinct is a mash-to-win noob-friendly combo fest

The best thing about E3 this year was the constant loitering of awesome developers at the Sony booth. It was like a Sup Holmes reunion special. That's where I bumped into Adam Heart, creator of the PS3/PS Vita/PC fighter Div...

Mad Max has a flair for the dramatic

“You know what the world needs? A videogame adaption of Mad Max, a franchise that’s sat in stagnation for almost three decades.” That’s apparently what someone at Avalanche Studios said, because here ...

A Link Between Worlds is the 2D Zelda revival we need

Yoshi's New Island is shaping up to be a crappier-looking retread of the original Yoshi's Island, and some folks worry that The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will likewise compare unfavorably to A Link to the Past. I...
