Lords of the Fallen shows a lot of promise

Action role-playing games are usually hit-or-miss in the way that they're received. The slightest deviancy in mechanics can turn a thrilling affair into a mundane and unexciting one. For the past few years, From Software's De...

Hero worship gone wrong in Hotline Miami 2

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number picks up after the events of the original game and focuses on two different groups of people you'll be playing as. While both groups are very different from one another, they both happen to be d...

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures will make you sad

"I think we have a demographic for it," I was told by a Namco Bandai PR rep. Let me back up -- mere moments earlier, he asked what I thought of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures; I returned his questioning with nothing more...

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 ...

Capybara's Below is a roguelike with permadeath

Of all the Xbox One games that were revealed during Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference, it was Capybara's Below that had me the most excited for the next-gen system. How could I not be? After all, Capy has had a track recor...

Blow's enigmatic The Witness is the highlight of the PS4

Braid-creator Jonathan Blow's The Witness is probably my most anticipated PS4 game -- almost definitely among games that are coming to the system this year. It, in its own way, stole the show at Sony's PlayStation 4 announcem...

Shadow Warrior is silly, old-school FPS fun

The original Shadow Warrior escaped me completely. History won't repeat itself with the remake in development at Flying Wild Hog (Hard Reset) -- not after some hands-on time with the first-person shooter at E3. The game ...

The Crew feels like Burnout Paradise on steroids

There was a plethora of racing games at this year's E3. Maybe too many, but whenever new consoles are on the horizon what better way to show off the power of these new machines. Ubisoft may not be known for pumping out high o...

Zombie survival title How to Survive was a real gem

In EKO Studios' How to Survive, you'll travel from island to island, monitoring hunger and sleep meters, crafting items from junk you find lying around and, oh yeah, taking down zombies with a bow or machete. The whole u...

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood shows promise

A spiritual successor to Max and the Magic Marker, Press Play's Max: The Curse of Brotherhood was about what I expected in terms of platforming. While the handling is a bit loose, I will say the magical marker itself co...

FIFA 14 feels a bit more methodical

The "step-based locomotion technology" behind FIFA 14 makes the game feel grounded, putting a greater emphasis on the fluidity of movement. It's cool to see, because dribbling and positioning are paramount in soccer/football...

Madden 25 going crazy with one-handed catches

Madden 13 was really the shot in the arm the franchise needed after several years of feeling remarkably stale. The implementation of a physics system in retrospect seems paramount for something striving to be simulation footb...

I'm down with Dragon's Crown

Dragon's Crown is easily one of my favorite games of E3. It's been on my radar for years, back when it was being published by UTV Ignition, but I've kept my distance lately with the visual style controversy. I had the opportunity to really dig in here at E3, and I like where it's headed.There's a lot more to this game than its polarizing visual style, so let's check it out.

NHL 14 fight system revamped, collision physics happening

One of the weird things about NHL 13 was its newly implemented first-person fighting system. Well, that system is getting removed because it takes the player too much out of the game. In its stead, some of the tech from EA's...

NCAA 14: Better with physics

When I previewed NCAA Football 14 earlier this year, I noted that the best news about the game is that it uses the Infinity Engine 2, the original iteration of which made Madden 13 the best entry in the series in many years. ...

Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies is lookin' fine in 3D

I'm a big fan of the Ace Attorney series but fell off the wagon somewhere between the Apollo Justice and Miles Edgeworth games, so it's exciting to see that Phoenix is making a comeback in Dual Destinies. The game takes place...
