Upcoming Tomb Raider comic to 'lead directly' into sequel

Having only recently finished up my first and only Lara Croft adventure outside of Guardian of Light, it was heartbreaking to remember that at 3.4 million copies sold as of March, Tomb Raider didn't live up to publisher Squar...

In an unexpected surprise here at Comic Con, Konami showed off an extensive hands-off gameplay walkthrough detailing more of the game’s systems, music, and environs. The demo took place a brief time after the events seen in the E3 demo, after Dracula has awoken from his thousand-year slumber and is exploring his castle in an effort to reclaim his lost power.

There are more reasons than ever to be excited about this game, so find out what it was all about below.

I took a break from the crowded show floor of San Diego Comic-Con to relax for a bit with the latest build of 5th Cell's upcoming game, Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure. Scribblenauts has always been one of those games that's easy to pick up but hard to break away from, but the new superhero twist in this latest game gives us even more to get lost in.

Belch out eyeballs of your foes in latest Pac-Man game
by Jayson Napolitano

We covered the newly-announced Pac-Man game at E3, and while Brett's assessment wasn't positive, I was shocked most by the belch that Pac-Man lets loose at the end of each stage, from which the eyeballs of his consumed ghostly foes spew forth.

Now, Pac-Man and the Ghost Adventures is tailored after the cartoon series, which is actually the most popular show on Disney Kids, so that should be an indication of who this game's target audience is. Still, we have some new details about the game, including its roots in the classic Pac-Man arcade titles.

Powerstar Golf is in the rough photo
Powerstar Golf is in the rough
by Dale North

Powerstar Golf is a launch title for Xbox One. It's an arcade golf title, but it's no Hot Shots Golf. On the surface it seems like it's par for the arcade-y golf course, but a few issues have it stuck in the sand traps.

If you were to pull out the big-headed/small-bodied Japanese characters of Hot Shots Golf and replace them with taller, comic book-ish characters, you'd have something that looks a lot like Powerstar. The courses are sharp and clean, and the HUD is exactly as you'd expect. Its environments look nice, though there's nothing about it that screams next gen.

The control scheme and shot mechanic are also pretty similar to Hot Shots. It uses the three button press swing -- once to start the swing, again to set the power, and one more time to set accuracy. Even course navigation and the putting grid are right in line with what you'd see from Clap Hanz's work.
