Leipzig GC 2007: Quake Wars

Time was short at Activision on the day I popped over for a look at the new Quake II-themed Enemy Territory game, so I unfortunately didn't get as long as I'd hoped for with what was one of my most looked-forward-to games of the GC. What I ...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Far Cry 2

Around a week into my Leipzig coverage, and looking at my writing schedule I've still got a bunch more FPS to detail. It's a sign of the times my friends, and one I'm not entirely happy about. Somehow, this whole genre bandwagon thing never...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Crysis

You might have read Fronz's report of his play test of Crysis back in January. While he found the game to be trouser-troubling beautiful and solidly playable -- despite bugs -- he ultimately wasn't blown away by the overall experience. I ha...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Rayman Raving Rabbids 2

I like Rabbids. They do a lot of important work. In this world of mopey, emo, RPG heroes, violent, grizzled, downtrodden anti-heroes, earnest corporate mascots, and cute and cuddly cartoon critters, the Rabbids want nothing more from their ...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Warhound

Remember when I said in my Dead Island preview that Techland could have another sleeper on their hands if things work out? Warhound is that game. Most of the journalists I talked to at Leipzig who went to Techland's booth went there for Dea...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with Spore

Leipzig GC 2007: The rumors are true! Heavens be praised! New Dreamcast games!

When I first met up with Lukas "3r0t1c n3rd" Cerin -- a sterling chap in case you don't know him, and a thoroughly dedicated member of the Dtoid army -- on Wednesday night, he told me of a story he'd heard that there were going to...   read

Why is The Witcher so stupid looking? (Possibly NSFW video)

Okay, so seriously ... what the [intercourse] is this [fecal matter]? That's a cleaner example of the kind of thought that's been going through my head consistently during every minute of my watching this video. Apparently, this classes as ...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Test driving the Wii Balance Board

I stepped up to the Wii Fit Balance Board feeling rather ambivalent about the whole thing. On the one hand, while I'm a big fan of what Nintendo is doing in taking games beyond being playthings and into the new realm of mainstream experienc...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Hands-on with the Super Mario Galaxy demo's secret levels

I did not enjoy Nintendo's press "booth tour." Not one little bit. I never suspected for a second that they'd use the occasion to unveil anything radically new, but surely they could have done better than to spend the best part of...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: A New Beginning

I've been ranting about the need for a resurgence in point and click adventures for a good while now. The genre's been forsaken as unfashionable for far too long, and in this Wii and DS-dominated climate, there's absolutely no excuse for no...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Dead Island

I've noticed over the years that I have three main reactions to new videogames I like. Firstly, I have the "serious" reaction, whereby I take on an expression of thoughtful reverence in the face of a something groundbreaking or ar...   read

Leipzig GC 2007: Sony Press Conference

Okay, so we've already heard from EA, but what of the company who many still feel has most to prove this generation? I was sitting in on Sony's Leipzig press conference and now, a bit later than planned due to the failings of hotel WiFi, he...   read
