Watch out, citizens of Los Angeles. There's a war on drugs in your city, and you just might end up as collateral damage. In Battlefield Hardline's take on the City of Angels, the forecast always calls for a fair chance of ra...

Today on Tuesday Newsday, we go over two games that Brett Makedonski previewed, which have both been delayed, The Order: 1886 and The Evil Within. The new Battlefield is Hardline, seemingly a cops and robbers theme rather tha...
Uncharted series writer and creative director Amy Hennig parted ways with Naughty Dog in early March and ever since then I've been dying to know where she'd end up. While Dead Space maker Visceral Games is not what I was expe...

It had co-op and cover-based shooting, but Electronic Arts' flailing attempts to make Dead Space 3 "appeal to a wider audience" apparently failed. Visceral's latest game now joins Tomb Raider, Hitman: Absolution and Resident ...

EA Mobile in Montreal faces 200 - 250 employee layoffs with more to come, a source with connections to EA Mobile told Gamasutra, and the studio will gradually become completely shutdown. EA confirmed layoffs but said that the...
It's very hard to believe a studio when it claims work never begun on a piece of downloadable content until after the main game was finished, especially when that DLC is a direct continuation of the story and was essentially ...
Dead Space 3's Awakened downloadable content was announced the week the main game was released in stores. DLC announcements made early on in production -- or even right around a game's launch -- typically draw fan rage by th...
Overall, I really enjoyed Dead Space 3. There were points that it dragged on, but a lot of the stuff near the end in those last few levels made it up for me. Still, Dead Space 2 is my favorite of the franchise largely because...

So, I haven't really been super interested in Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel. That is until this new trailer that focuses a lot more on the story. I think part of the reason is that the story presented here looks like it'll...
Last week's Assassin Creed debate turned into a rogue race between the first two games in the series, with Assassin's Creed II coming out on top by a few votes . . . and jumping to its close demise in a pile of hay below. Bro...
One of the things you can always expect from a Dead Space game is that Isaac Clarke will get torn to bits in so many wonderful ways. You can also expect someone on YouTube to take the time to great a big old montage full of ...

I just beat Dead Space 3's single-player mode this past week and overall enjoyed it. I need to do some co-op still, which I hear is a better way to play the game. While it was overall a fun experience, I'm not so sure I would...

Yup, Visceral brought back the foam finger gun for Dead Space 3. Kind of was hoping for something different this time, but it's still a pretty badass weapon. Like before, it's pretty much a one-hit kill weapon, and Isaac wil...
One of the elements of classic horror is that when the horrible thing you are dreading finally happens, it happens in a way far more gruesome than you expect. Visceral Games got this part right so many times in its Dead Space...
Dead Space 3 has barely been out 24 hours, but that hasn't stopped Visceral Games from getting started on developing their next game. Designer Warren Price took to Twitter earlier today and announced that the studio is a...
