PAX Prime 2010: Duke Nukem’s surprise return

on Sat, Sep 4, 2010 | By Tim Torres

Well, I didn’t expect this. After 13 years of development hell, Duke Nukem Forever, the sequel to 90s first-person-shooter classic Duke Nukem 3D is finally, FINALLY FINALLY on its way to consoles and PC. And we’re all still here. No fire raining down from the sky, no boiling oceans. It’s happening. It’s really happening. Unless, of course, something...

PAX Prime 2010: Ubisoft unveils Outland

on Sat, Sep 4, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

Housemarque, developer of Super Stardust HD, has teamed up with Ubisoft to create a 2D platformer that pulls inspiration from an unlikely source: a shmup. A shmup named Ikaruga. What we know so far about Outland is that it’s a platformer in the vein of Prince of Persia – and it operates on Ikaruga’s infamous light/dark mechanics. The currently unnamed main character...

Shank (XBLA) Review – Big bang, baby

on Thu, Sep 2, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

  Klei Entertainment’s Shank has ranked high on my “must-play-in-2010″ list ever since I got hands-on time with the game at PAX East 2010.

Ys Seven
on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 | By Tim Torres

I only know Ys (pronounced “ease”) by reputation of its lovely music and the ports of ports of ports (of ports) of Ys Books I & II we received in America a long while ago. I never played a game in the series before so I’m going into Ys Seven with eyes unclouded by expectations or nostalgia. It’s kind of an exciting way to play a game! I haven’t...

on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 | By Christine Yi

If you’re a fan of the show, and you’ve always wanted to take on those “Big Balls” in real life, Activision lets you and up to 3 of your friends play as contestants in ABC’s Wipeout: The Game.  The game’s Show Mode is modeled almost exactly after the TV show.
