I didn't think I'd enjoy Bayonetta this much

Fighting angels as a witch dressed up like Samus Aran is a fun way to spend an evening. I'm several years late to playing Bayonetta, a game I might have never sought out had Nintendo and Platinum not packaged it in with its W...

Eitr looks gorgeous, Soulsian in 2D

Eitr. Well, this looks lovely. Dungeons. Long pixel limbs. Flaming swords. Skeletons. Dashes. "Touch?" prompts. My kind of jam. And two people made this?  Also, the second half of the trailer is a bit more exc...

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare photo
Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
by Chris Carter

After the disappointing Call of Duty: Ghosts, Activision needed fresh ideas, and Sledgehammer was just the developer for the job. Even before it delivered its first game, a weight has been lifted off of Infinity Ward and Treyarch's shoulders. No longer does it need to turnaround a Call of Duty every other year, and there is more time to figure out how to make the series fresh again.

As a result, Sledgehammer has a lot riding on Advanced Warfare, the newest game in the series. It has everything going for it -- a fresh futuristic theme, the same core multiplayer gameplay everyone knows and loves, and the talented Kevin Spacey running the show with the campaign.

The gambit paid off, even if it won't bring back in those who have sworn off the series.

What the hell, Assassin's Creed? Time-travel isn't part of the deal

Well, this changes things up. Assassin's Creed Unity is going where no ancestral assassin has gone before -- the future. This trailer shows the Animus simulation collapsing, forcing the protagonist -- still acting and d...

I still haven't beaten that Bloodborne TGS demo photo
I still haven't beaten that Bloodborne TGS demo
by Steven Hansen

Usually seeing a demo you played just a month ago means there isn't too much more to wring out. This is not the case with Bloodborne.

The Tokyo Game Show demo bested me. That same demo was playable today at Paris Games Week. Its stations were behind me when I was playing The Order for the first time. The two rectangle setups shared a side. The Order's demo area was strewn about with rope, like cartoonish, espiga colored rope. Fake ammunition belts and singular rounds were glued to the table and up against some walls were crates with weapon replicas.

The Bloodborne area was threaded with leaves and one large angel statue with bleeding eyes. These are opposite games, positioned opposite each other. After playing The Order, I turned about, more excited to try and get through a Bloodborne level I had already played.

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...

Particulars explores the subatomic world next month

I always appreciate seeing science represented in games, outside of the typical "heroes need to clean up the mess these mad scientists made" trope. Videogames can be so powerful as tools for learning, and that potential is s...

Where is our Lords of the Fallen review?

Lords of the Fallen reviews are flittering about the 'net. Except ours. Well, mine. There are a combination of reasons for this. Initial PC review code we were provided had some issues with booting players out of the game aft...

Bloodborne developer targeting 30fps

When Bloodborne arrives next year on the PS4, it will clock in at 30 frames per second. This is apparently because that rate is the "best" for action games, according to producer Masaaki Yamagiwa. In an interview with Pl...

Review: Sunset Overdrive
by Chris Carter

After booting the game up, it's apparent that Sunset Overdrive is the result of Insomniac Games going back to its roots. Before the developer was called upon to release the shades-of-brown-tinted Resistance and Fuse, it was known for the bright and exciting Spyro and Ratchet & Clank franchises, which were among the PlayStation's finest offerings for gamers of all ages.

Not only is Sunset bright and exciting, it's actually a good game too.

There are just too many assassins in the new AC Unity TV ad

The new Assassin's Creed Unity television spot sheds a few tears, but it sheds way more blood. That's what happens when it figuratively rains assassins in the streets, from the roofs, and through the windows. Sometimes it takes a flood to spark a revolution.

'Time is literally running out': Lengthy look at Quantum Break photo
'Time is literally running out': Lengthy look at Quantum Break
by Steven Hansen

Have we even seen this much Quantum Break gameplay? The half television show, half videogame from the developers of Max Payne and Alan Wake is coming to Xbox One next year.

Everything about this is hokey and trite, a Marvel comic in a leather jacket ensconced button up with less color. It also has a pretty nice look to it compared to other photorealistic games. There's some color and good lighting there. It's like a not gross and exclusively piss-covered Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

It's winning me over for the first time though through technical marvel but because that initial bit of combat starts with shrug inducing third-person cover boredom before moving to Singularity-reminiscent time powers--gained by being involved in a freak accident that is killing time--that seems to encourage scaled back, Vanquish-style movement. Active gunplay. Like, there could be a good action game under all this pomp instead of what easily could've been lazy cover-based shooting gluing a bad plot together? 

I still don't want to sit through the TV show, though, especially when it looks as if the game will have more than enough cutscenes and non-interactive bits.

Review: Bayonetta 2 photo
Review: Bayonetta 2
by Chris Carter

Outside of Devil May Cry 3, Bayonetta is one of the finest action games of all time. The action systems were so clean, so precise, and so rewarding that it leaves pretty much everything these days in the dust.

Bayonetta 2 doesn't change a whole lot, and that's perfectly okay with me.
