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 ...   read

Hands-on: Darkspore PvP

When EA announced Darkspore earlier this summer, the fusion between Spore's character customization and a Diablo-esque RPG set in space makes for an interesting set-up. Last night, we had the chance to see how the game's PvP elements a...   read

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...   read

Hands-on: Homefront 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 ...   read

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 ...   read

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...   read
