5 reasons Batman Brave & the Bold will rock

batman: the brave and the bold game
on Tue, Sep 7, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

Batman: The Brave and the Bold is a fun cartoon featuring wacky gadgets, themed villains, superhero team-ups, and corny jokes – it’s like an animated serial from the ’60s, blending the best of the Dick Sprang comics with the Adam West show and broadcasting half a century late. The Batman: The Brave and the Bold video game looks like fun, too, which is awesome because...

PAX Prime 2010: Hands-on with Mortal Kombat

Frame - 1722
on Mon, Sep 6, 2010 | By John De Large

While I was at PAX, I got a chance to play a little Mortal Kombat one-on-one with a man named Hector who works at NetherRealm, while we were surrounded by some of the most enthusiastic Mortal Kombat fans ever. This incarnation of Mortal Kombat features a super meter that you can charge to allow access to X-Ray moves, Mortal Kombat’s answer to the Hyper Combo. I watched...

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. The sentiment was bolstered upon sampling the 2D beat ‘em up at E3 2010. Shank, after months of waiting, is finally available for purchase on PSN and XBLA arcade (it’s also headed to PC later this year),...

Bit.Trip Fate concept art

on Wed, Sep 1, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

In typical Gaijin Games style, the concept art for the newest Bit.Trip game looks awesome. It’s called Bit.Trip Fate. It’s the fifth game in the series and looks completely different from the previous 2D-friendly style of the series. While the picture only reveals lava in a cave with a skinny, shiny version of Lost’s Smoke Monster, possibilities abound. According to...
