Hands-on: Need for Speed Shift 2: Unleashed

Review: The OnLive MicroConsole and Controller

It's really easy for PC snobs to hate on OnLive. Because it is a streaming service, visual fidelity and lag pose a serious problem, leaving many to write off OnLive before it has properly launched. And let's be real, while the service has ...

OnLive subscription plan detailed

While OnLive had been available for customers since June, it's been a fairly bare-bones service for the most part, but it looks like that's about to change. With 40 titles in their catalog and a release date for the Microconsole device, thi...

Hands-on: Wildlife: Forest Survival

Wildlife: Forest Survival is one of the weirdest class-based versus games I have ever played. Different from the upcoming Tokyo Jungle, Wildlife: Forest Survival only has four animals, and is an arena based game that's in cute forest enviro...

Hands-on with Dead Space 2's Puker

Last time we checked out Dead Space 2's multiplayer, we were impressed with the Left 4 Dead-influenced survival modes. While the Humans versus Necromorphs gameplay doesn't leave for variety of modes, the core gameplay looks like a solid gri...

Hands-on: Homefront single-player

Last month, I was fortunate to be in THQ's brand new (and massive) new development studio, THQ Montreal. It's a beautiful place, with all sorts of snazzy offerings for the future Quebecois employees. However, while that's all grand and good...

Impressions: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood single-player

Impressions: Kinect Adventures

No bit of hardware is any good if there is no software to show it off. Arguably, Wii Sports was the system seller for that console, and the fact it came bundled with the Wii only made the whole shebang that much more appealing. Microsoft ...

Impressions: Faery: Legends of Avalon

It's hard to be a fairy in videogames. Remember, Navi in Ocarina of Time is universally derided, and Rare has basically gone on the record stating that Kameo just shouldn't have happened. So when a studio decides to take a fairy and make ...

Hands-on: Rush'n Attack: Ex-Patriot

Rush'n Attack: Ex Patriot has a major problem when it comes to plot. You see, it's not the late 1980s anymore, so the rampant fear of Soviet Russia doesn't hang over us like a red curtain. So Rush'n Attack: Ex Patriot address...

Impressions: Fighters Uncaged

As much as Microsoft would like to indicate, Kinect is a device that is going to leave most hardcore gamers in the cold...at least initially. With the upcoming launch set for November 4 in the States, most of the expected launch titles are ...
