Condemned 2 toned down in wake of Manhunt ban

The uprising kicked up in by the de facto banning of Manhunt 2 had some folks scratching their heads. They wondered: why all the ruckus over Manhunt? The original wasn't all that great, after all. Though I count myself among the angry m...

E3 2007: Hands-on with Devil May Cry 4

My eyes weren't fixed on DMC4 until I ran into our own Colette trying her hand at the game, giggling with a sort of unrestrainable glee that only a good, solid action title can draw out of you. I was blowing away the hordes of zombies a...


E3 2007: Portal will melt your face off

Portal is one of those games that, in my heart of hearts, I believe to be made just for me. That’s right: somewhere in the last couple of years, a magical faerie descended upon a group of Digipen students in the dead of night, sprinkl...


E3 2007: Hands-on with Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles

Famitsu reveals Trauma Center: New Blood

When I got my Wii in November, I picked up two games to complement my Sports pack-in: Twilight Princess (which was damn-near required) and Trauma Center: Second Opinion. Sure, the DS version was hard as balls, but Goddamn, it was a hell of ...

Here it is, the last bit of Rock Band info Harmonix has to share before the big show next week, when yours truly and the rest of the Dtoid bunch will get a chance to put our skills to the test and suck royal-like in front of colleagues and ...
