If you read my E3 preview of Madden 13, you know that I’m tenuously excited for it. If you haven’t, well, I’m tenuously excited for it. The reason behind this cautious optimism is that Madden has finally imp... more
So, I finally picked up Battlefield Premium yesterday, and I can't tell you how excited I am to play the new Tank Superiority mode that's coming with Battlefield 3: Armored Kill in September. So, in Tank Superiority ever... more
Sorry, Holly Green. I'm going to miss you.

I fear for my bank account. more
The last FIFA game was pretty well received. Accordingly, much of what I saw for FIFA 13 seemed to be more of a refinement of FIFA 12 than a complete overhaul, although I’m sure this is what most players are expecting.
I know, these Need for Speed subtitles are getting a bit confusing, but the games are anything but. People seem to find something appealing about driving sexy, nasty cars that break the $100K mark, and playing chicken with th... more
As reported earlier, EA has brought out the white glove on Zynga with SimCity Social for Facebook. This isn't just a rehash of any well-known farming games, though. Players will get to watch their cities evolve based on ... more
Those graphics, am I right? Unlike the other shooters EA showed off, Crysis 3 actually has some great color. It seems to be a blend of Crysis and Crysis 2 in terms of setting; an "urban rainforest," as EA describes. We also s... more

A lot of fantastic games came out this week, but there's yet another one that may have slipped past your radar or you just forgot about. Extremely bloody and violent 2D side-scrolling beat 'em up Shank 2 is this week's downl... more
A new trailer for Syndicate went up today, detailing the "DART 6" abilities that players will have at their disposal. The video details a lot of the stuff that yesterday's demo simply didn't have, making me feel much more co... more
Here's a great big wad of screenshots for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, full of massive swords, bright colors and pointy ears. Some of these are old, some of them are new. All of them are worth checking out.

Whoa, can you believe that Battlefield 3 is only 9 days away from being released in North America? That's, like, not a long time or something.
Now there are bound to be some out there who are a little frustrated or ... more
You'll see why they call this trailer "On The Edge" when you watch it.
EA really has arcade racing on lockdown, and they're not letting up. The next game in the NFS series, Need for Speed The Run, centers around a cros... more
One of next year's most promising titles is easily Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. It looks beautiful, has a wad of talent behind it, and I've been told by those who have played it that it's a lot of fun. Sadly still, nobody's... more
While it seems most people have come back around to SSX after a questionable start, anyone still not feeling this modern take on the series ought to give this new trailer a chance.
Prior videos have also shown that this game... more
Electronic Arts has released a couple of Battlefield 3 screenshots from the game's single-player mission Operation Guillotine. Not long ago, we got to see a short teaser video of this level which takes place outside of Tehran... more
Okay, now Burnout Crash! is starting to look more appealing. Spaceships? I had no idea. This is a good time, seeing as how the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade title was dated today. It's hitting PSN and XBLA on Tuesd... more
EA has found a great deal of success in its Autolog feature. So much, in fact, that it's implementing that same function into pretty much all of its other games. In it's upcoming SSX reboot, the autolog looks to be in full s... more

BioWare was ... more
Here's a brand new trailer and some fresh images of Battlefield 3, release just in time for Gamescom. You know the drill by now -- guns, beautiful graphics, some more guns, and OH WOW JETS!
Yep, vehicles are making their mar... more
DICE is one of the few studios that can get away with releasing a handful of screenshots at a time, because each Battlefield 3 screen is utterly compelling. Just take a look at the shot in the rail tunnel. The detailed textur... more
The new screenshots for SSX show Psymon's updated look for 2012. This larger-than-life character has been toned down a bit, but to me, his absurdity always truly stemmed from the random things he spouted off.

Electronic Arts' free-to-play online racer Need for Speed World is celebrating its one-year anniversary. As such, players are getting a new mode, 1000 SpeedBoost, and an exclusive vinyl and license plate.

One of the major selling points for Alice: Madness Returns is the game's twisted nature, and how the art style meshes nicely with the insanity. Take, for instance, these screenshots.
When you enter "Hysteria!" mode, Alice goe... more
When I was eleven or twelve, I was always on a skateboard. I wasn't one of those kids who was really attempting to learn how to ollie and kickflip, though I'll admit to an occasional fantasy that I might someday.
