Hands-on: Need for Speed Shift 2: Unleashed

EA's recently announced Need For Speed Shift 2: Unleashed is again a step away from the arcade style action racer. Despite the rather outlandish title, this is a racing sim more in line with Project Gotham Racing or Forza (ma...

Review: The OnLive MicroConsole and Controller

It's really easy for PC snobs to hate on OnLive. Because it is a streaming service, visual fidelity and lag pose a serious problem, leaving many to write off OnLive before it has properly launched. And let's be real, while t...

OnLive subscription plan detailed

While OnLive had been available for customers since June, it's been a fairly bare-bones service for the most part, but it looks like that's about to change. With 40 titles in their catalog and a release date for the Microcons...

Hands-on: Darkspore PvP

When EA announced Darkspore earlier this summer, the fusion between Spore's character customization and a Diablo-esque RPG set in space makes for an interesting set-up. Last night, we had the chance to see how the game's...

Hands-on: Wildlife: Forest Survival

Wildlife: Forest Survival is one of the weirdest class-based versus games I have ever played. Different from the upcoming Tokyo Jungle, Wildlife: Forest Survival only has four animals, and is an arena based game that's in cute forest environments. It's all rather odd, and it is certainly like nothing else on the market. Follow for more.

Hands-on with Dead Space 2's Puker

Last time we checked out Dead Space 2's multiplayer, we were impressed with the Left 4 Dead-influenced survival modes. While the Humans versus Necromorphs gameplay doesn't leave for variety of modes, the core gameplay looks l...

EA announces two new downloadable titles

Last night, EA held an event to showcase some of their new titles coming out for the coming winter and spring. Fantastic indeed, and in addition to all of the games the company has been developing over the last few years, Ele...

Five things you didn't know about THQ's Danny Bilson

THQ is on a rise right now. After years of relying on licensed titles and WWE wrestling games, the company is stepping it up to compete with the likes of Ubisoft, EA, and Activision. With a new studio in Montreal that will ...

Hands-on: Homefront single-player

Last month, I was fortunate to be in THQ's brand new (and massive) new development studio, THQ Montreal. It's a beautiful place, with all sorts of snazzy offerings for the future Quebecois employees. However, while that's all...

Hands-on: Donkey Kong Country Returns

People have been really stoked for Donkey Kong Country Returns. And they should be! After all, the original Donkey Kong Country games remain classic fan favorites, even as DK has been pushed to the side in favor of other Ni...

Impressions: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood single-player

Ubisoft has Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood coming out in just a couple of weeks, and for fans of the franchise, that means a lot. Known for the impossible feats, assassinations of real world people, and the based-in-reality ...

Impressions: Kinect Adventures

No bit of hardware is any good if there is no software to show it off. Arguably, Wii Sports was the system seller for that console, and the fact it came bundled with the Wii only made the whole shebang that much more appealing. Microsoft is making the same bet by bundling Kinect with an equally casual title: Kinect Adventures. Does it measure up?

First Party Microsoft Developer Working on 3D with Kinect

While Nintendo and Sony have been pretty proactive on 3D stereoscopic gaming, Microsoft has been a little quiet on the homefront. Sure, some rumors have popped up, but there has not been any real solid confirmation that the...

Impressions: Kinect Joy Ride

Kinect Joy Ride has a weird history. Initially introduced as a free Xbox Live title, the game has gone on to become a flagship Kinect launch title. Kart racers are a dime a dozen, and while many have stepped up to the plate...

Impressions: Faery: Legends of Avalon

It's hard to be a fairy in videogames. Remember, Navi in Ocarina of Time is universally derided, and Rare has basically gone on the record stating that Kameo just shouldn't have happened. So when a studio decides to take a ...

Hideo concert brings videogame music to Bay Area

One of the most popular events for Dtoiders to go to are those annual Final Fantasy concerts, or listen into the ever popular Video Games Live, or even just watch arrangements of videogame tunes on Youtube. Something about th...
