Preview: Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth

I've been watching Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth with a fair bit of curiosity. When announced as a Kinect title that would not be a tie-in to the recently released film, I put myself in media blackout mode in anticipation...

Preview: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (beta)

Clone. Ripoff. Copycat. Call it what you want, but PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a game that stands on its own. There have been a couple games that have aped the style of Super Smash Bros. in the past, but none of...

Dead or Alive 5 has those jiggle physics you love, more

At E3 last week, there were a good amount of new fighting games. Conrad and I made our rounds to all the booths that had fighting games to show off, and Steven Hansen eventually joined us as well. Here we made our way to the...

Injustice: Gods Among Us made me all kinds of happy

In our quest to check out all the fighting games, Conrad, Steven, and myself managed to convince Warner Bros. to let us get down and dirty with Injustice: Gods Among Us. In no time at all, we were behind closed doors where S...

Jimpressions: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

There's no escaping the fact: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is one of the most blatant and shameless rip-offs seen this generation. It might as well embrace the sarcasm and actually call itself Sony Smash Bros., because...

E3: When Vikings Attack is good for drunken party play

Okay, so State of Emergency wasn’t the GTA III-killer that Rockstar hyped it up to be. So, what? Sometimes it’s fun to play an embarrassingly dumb game about throwing things into other things.

E3: Body slamming men in tights from space in Injustice

I never thought I'd want to play a DC superhero fighting game, but then again, I never thought I'd want to play another Mortal Kombat after the series' decline in the '00s. Once again, NetherRealm is changing my mind. Injusti...

E3: PlayStation All-Stars can be played on Vita, but why?

I love what Sony is doing with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, but I have a hard time finding the appeal of playing it on such a small screen. The visuals hold up surprisingly well on Sony's handheld, with only some slig...

E3: PS All-Stars Battle Royale hands-on: Drake, Big Daddy

With every new character unveil, I become more excited for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Now that the Internet has had a couple of weeks to fight over whether it's a soulless Super Smash Bros. clone (it isn't), Sony ha...

Hands-on preview: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

The rumors were true, and now that I've played it, I'm glad. Sony has been working on a mashup fighting game that pits many of their first-party characters against each other in a Smash Bros. style four-player match. This bra...

Look how much fun I had playing Dragon Ball Z For Kinect!

As promised, here's the video of me playing Dragon Ball Z For Kinect following-up on my hands-on impressions. Just look at me go! Flailing away like an idiot. Don't I look so happy?! For the record, I'm not faking anything here. I really felt this miserable during the entire experience.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2's 2 vs 1 battles will be balanced

One of the biggest attractions in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is the new 2 vs 1 mode. The mode goes alongside the 2 vs 2 and 1 vs 1 options, and despite the presumption that the fights won't be fair, Tekken Producer Katsuhiro Ha...
