Preview: Ghost Recon Commander shoots you in the Facebook

Woah, a Facebook game! I don't think I've played one of these for a while. In fact, the last Facebook game I played was over a year ago, coincidentally another one linked to Ubisoft -- something about castles that my girlfriend urged me to ...   read

Preview: Kinect rules with Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

It's somewhat difficult to deny at this point that the whole motion controls movement has been a bit of a bust. Developers never quite figured out how to properly implement them into already established genres. The traditional controller ha...   read

Preview: Steam and spirituality in Civ V: Gods & Kings

Few games actually require no introduction, and this is certainly one of them. This long-winded, turn-based strategy series has persistently delved deep into the core of human history, and what it takes for a nation to start, grow and die. ...   read

About the 'art' debate: Please shut the f**k up

The greatest comment I've ever read from a community member anywhere was, "Son of a s**t-eating Christ, not another 'games as art' argument. Excuse me while I alleviate my pain by shooting out my left ball." Nope, I'm not making that up; so...   read

Preview: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Few developers have a large enough catalog of praised franchises that they can make entire games featuring a variety of their own iconic characters. Nintendo is obviously the leading company that has made a habit of doing this regularly, a...   read

Preview: Fun with guns in Max Payne 3 single/multiplayer

I'm going to slip on my flamboyant fanboy hat for a second here and say that I adore the Max Payne series. Ever since the third installment was announced about 63 f*ckin' years ago, every morning has felt like a lie to me; those subsequent ...   read

Preview: Darksiders II is inspired by the best there is

Though I never brought myself to complete the first Darksiders, I did enjoy it for the length that I played. It was nothing phenomenal in its own right, but it was still a fun experience, due to retaining enough good inspiration from o...   read

Correction: 1C's Men of War and King's Bounty not F2P

A recent preview I wrote (published earlier this week) regarding 1C Company titles contained misinformation on two of the three games featured, Men of War: Condemned Heroes and King's Bounty: Warriors of the North. In this piece, it was ori...   read

Review: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680

For some of us, upgrading our PCs with the best hardware and enjoying the most jaw-dropping games in all their glory is a not-so-distant memory. Even though I've consistently owned beefy rigs my whole life, I've spent less and less time uti...   read

Preview: Three 1C Company games worthy of a gander

[UPDATE: It has been brought to our attention that factual errors have been made with regards to this preview, and that only one of 1C's titles, Royal Quest, will be free to play, whereas the other two mentioned titles will be retail. We ap...   read

GDC: Conquering worlds for free in PlanetSide 2

First-person shooters lend themselves incredibly well to vast, open environments, so it's almost criminal that we don't have more games taking that to the level the original PlanetSide did. A normal session of gameplay involved me driving m...   read

Preview: Fighting an evil U.N. in End of Nations

I've never had much of a knack for strategy or warfare. I'm not relentlessly evil enough to be a dictator, and I'm not selfless and stalwart enough to be some sort of freedom fighter. So when the big WWIII hits, I'm probably going to be one...   read

Preview: Getting in deep with the Triads in Sleeping Dogs

I'm so glad this game has shaped into what it is now, because when I first heard that Sleeping Dogs was originally titled True Crime: Hong Kong, I thought to myself, "Damn it, hopefully this will be a short demo." Once I saw the game in act...   read

Surviving the haste and chaos of Resident Evil: ORC

The name Resident Evil conjures up a lot of fond memories for most of us gamers. For me, it was my very first experience with the original PlayStation -- as it was for many other people. This slowly paced and macabre series spearheaded a ge...   read

Preview: Street Fighter X Tekken through a noob's eyes

A friend once told me he thought fighting games had cool characters. After he wiped the blood from his head, he quickly apologized to me and said, "Perhaps I should rethink that statement." Then miraculously, out of a nearby TV jumped Roger...   read

Preview: Play with yourself in Blades of Time

Geeks seem to love screwing with natural order. Whether it's by creating biological weapons that breed a form of undead human, or by using ugly '80s cars to go back in time and narrowly escape sex with a younger version of their mothers, th...   read

Preview: Shank 2 makes killing joyful

Shank 2 is a lot nastier than I was expecting. That's the good kind of nasty ... the kind that makes you think, "I am so freaking glad I did that move." Anyone who has an odd attraction to exaggerated cartoon violence should probably keep a...   read

Preview: UFC Undisputed 3 turns me into a bro

I'm not an athletic person. To me, exercise if the farthest thing from fun, and exhausting myself half to death is akin to self flagellation. Even the never-changing world of sports is something that I find quite uninteresting. But that doe...   read

The Old Republic shows that narrative matters

Games are fun, and you can't really deny that they've got "fun" pretty streamlined and perfected at this point. They're so fun that people have been hooked enough to forget the basic necessities of life -- food, water, women -- and have die...   read

Preview: Besiege your neighbor in Stronghold 3

Do you think castles are awesome? Of course you do; everybody does. How about torturing naughty peasants in order to keep the rest of the population in line? Me too! Stronghold 3 is for those of us who miss the days when strategy and simula...   read
