Battlefield 4's 'Levolution' is such a horrible buzzword

Levolution. It sounds like someone with a lisp trying to say revolution. Well anyway, that's the marketing buzzword Electronic Arts is pushing like crazy, and while the name is stupid the tech behind it looks cool. The newes...

Destiny looks so goddamn gorgeous

I still have a hard time believing Destiny is actually possible given the scope of the entire project. You're going to have multiple worlds to explore, so many guns to play with, tons of enemies to kill, and it all looks gor...

Resogun is a blast, lets you throw humans photo
Resogun is a blast, lets you throw humans
by Dale North

Housemarque's latest, announced at this week's PlayStation press conference at gamescom, is PS4 title Resogun. Any fan of Super Stardust HD or Super Stardust Delta would be glad to hear that this game is a spiritual successor, though it adds some new ideas and some next-gen shine to the formula.

It's a shooter at heart, reminding of Defender, though it's not as space-y as you're fending off alien invaders in an attempt to save the last humans. Resogun plays cylindrically, with free back-and-forth movement. It's fast, but it's not so fast that you're overwhelmed. The left analog stick controls movement while the right one fires either forward or back. And aside from a few buttons for special attacks, that's all you really need to know to jump in and have fun.

gamescom: Forbidden Hotline Miami 2 interview questions

Between appointments I popped in to play Hotline Miami 2 again. And it's still awesome. After finishing (losing) I turned around to find a list of forbidden interview questions written on the wall behind me. The banned questi...

Murasaki Baby is strange and wonderful photo
Murasaki Baby is strange and wonderful
by Dale North

PlayStation Vita title Murasaki Baby looked to be pretty dark and twisted in its debut trailer at Sony's gamescom press conference earlier this week. Now that I've played it, I'd say that it isn't quite as dark as it first came off to be. There's actually a cute side to it.

Kind of.

The cuteness starts with the premise: the player uses the Vita's touchscreen to hold the hand of a baby carrying a balloon. You're to guide her on her journey to bring this balloon to her mother, as she is lost. This baby is kind of cute in an upside down head with huge eyes kind of way. Scary cute, if you will.

EVE Valkyrie was the best thing I saw at gamescom photo
EVE Valkyrie was the best thing I saw at gamescom
by Dale North

I saw a prototype of what was to be EVE Valkyrie at E3 this year. Along with Respawn's Titanfall, it was the talk of the show. CCP knew they had something special, so they created a full game from this demo.

Here at gamescom, CCP are showing a build so new that they just wrapped it up five days ago. Work started on what was to be Valkyrie in Reykjavik, but now they've moved to Newcastle, where a studio of 20 are working on it full time. 

While exciting, what I saw at E3 was still rough around the edges, and running on standard definition Oculus Rift headsets. They've been working on it ever since, talking the experience and turning it up as far as they could. It's now running on Rift HD prototype sets, packed full of improvements.

Will you get DriveClub for free? Or on Blu-ray?

I know it sounds like an easy choice. Free is the best price, right?  PS4 title DriveClub will be available on launch day for racing fans, but there's a choice to be made depending on what level of content you'd like. At...

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...

I love the fashion in Lightning Returns: FF XIII

So I really like fashion. It's not to the extent that I can tell what label you're wearing. In fact I don't care about that aspect of fashion. I just care about what looks good. And Lightning looks so good in all of her outf...

gamescom 2013 Day 1 in pictures

gamescom is crazy. There are what seems like miles of exhibition halls, all packed with games, attractions, and lots of sweaty people. Last year, I felt like I missed some things. This year, the first thing I did was run thro...

by Dale North

Are you sick of hearing about Titanfall? Too bad. 

Actually, I'll try to spare you a bit, as we talk about this game non-stop. But we blabbler on for good reason -- it's amazing.

Instead of only blabbering on about just how amazing it is, we'll just update you with the new details from our hands-on experience here at gamescom 2013. There's a new mode, new loadout details and more.
