I'm starting to come around on Dead Rising 3

[Update: Footage has returned as part of a giant montage of Xbox games.] No, really. I'm starting to like Dead Rising 3 with more footage we see. I was kind of turned off with the game at E3, largely because of the framerate...

Review: Splinter Cell: Blacklist photo
Review: Splinter Cell: Blacklist
by Jim Sterling

Splinter Cell: Conviction was, in my opinion, a superb new direction for the Splinter Cell series, but a fair few fans were unhappy with the changes Ubisoft made. It's hardly surprising then, that Splinter Cell: Blacklist pulls the classic trick of making the old seem new again, bringing Sam Fisher's stealthy adventures closer to their roots. 

However, unable to quite abandon Conviction -- and the potential new fans it won -- Ubisoft has also unsurprisingly sought a compromise between the new and the old. Features from Conviction have been married to Blacklist's more traditional design, and the result is a game that's quite entertaining, if somewhat unsure of itself.

Dead Rising 3 gets stupid, potty-mouthed CG trailer

Dead Rising 3's CG trailer is not necessarily stupid in a negative sense. Just in a stupid sense. The beginning was great, though. It says, "Hey, remember Dead Island? LOL ME TOO." Then the lead starts swearing and I was rem...

A refresher on all of Splinter Cell: Blacklist's assets

This latest Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer reads like the Cliff's Notes to all the previous Blacklist trailers, summarizing the game's various aspects. There's the silly, hyper-organized terrorist attacks on the United Sta...

This trailer for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is spooky

Those suffering from coulrophobia look away now. In this new live-action trailer for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, we get another hint of the paranoid flavour of the game's early 1960s setting. Young Kevin is watching his f...

Celebrate Firefall's open beta with this cheesy trailer

Yeah, it's a cheesy video but it sure does make me miss when games had live-action cutscenes. Not that I want more games to have live-action stuff again. Oh far from it. I just love watching really bad stuff like this while cringing in my seat. Anyway, Firefall is now in open beta. It's a free-to-play shooter, go check it out.

Hideo Kojima suggests starting with Metal Gear Solid 3

I'm so behind with the Metal Gear Solid series it's bordering on pathetic. Since playing through the famous bait n' switch in MGS 2, I've maybe only given the franchise a few hours of my life. I made it across to the bri...

Bringing the Payne! Max Payne 3 now graces Mac

One of my favorite games of last year was the exceptionally-crafted Max Payne 3. From its dark and moody story to the pulse-pounding action moments, it all combined to create one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences from ...

Dead Rising 3 is more 'mature, sophisticated' photo
Dead Rising 3 is more 'mature, sophisticated'
by Steven Hansen



As Jim reported, Dead Rising 3 is being aimed to appeal to Call of Duty fans. It showed in the hands-off demo shown here at E3. The theme of the presentation was the partnership with Microsoft in bringing Dead Rising 3 exclusively to the Xbox One and how the technical capabilities of the Xbox One allowed the team to take Dead Rising 3 "in a more mature, sophisticated direction," which seems like the last thing it needed or fans wanted.

There were other Xbox One exclusive capabilities touted as well, like Smart Glass integration that allows you to search the game's fully open world for gun shops and set way points without having to pull a map up on screen. Smart Glass was also used to call in a drone strike and, later, a block leveling explosive airstrike.
