The Force Unleashed Demo Hits XBLA, PSN Soon to Follow

Posted by Metallian on August 21st, 2008 at 5:43 pm

Fulfilling my role as a nocturnal manchild, I lurked on Live marketplace until 0400 ET then downloaded the hell out of The Force Unleashed demo. Here are my completely scientific findings. Basically the thing plays like God of (Star) War(s) and feels completely different than every SW game ever, in that your only goal is […]

E3 2008 – Sony Press Conference

Posted by inpheaux on July 15th, 2008 at 4:29 pm

Skipping Nintendo's lackluster conference because I was taking a lovely Automata Theory final exam while it was taking place. So we'll move straight into Sony's. PS3 Resistance 2 - Sony's big focus this time around. Unfortunately, to me, it just looks like more of the same stuff. It's a shooter. There are aliens. Big aliens. […]

GTA IV dated: 29 APR 2008, for real this time.

Posted by inpheaux on January 24th, 2008 at 1:55 pm

Take 2 issued a pretty short press release today announcing that the super mega anticipated Grand Theft Auto IV will debut on the 360 and PS3 on April 29th. Yes, that's three months from now. I will wait a moment for that to sink in. Got it? Alright. As for why it got delayed, well, […]

Valve Store Update: Cubes! Posters! Headcrabs! Other Stuff!

Posted by inpheaux on December 14th, 2007 at 11:14 pm

Well, the day is finally here. Time to rush rush rush to buy Weighted Companion Cube merchandise. Valve has two options to fill the Weighted-Companion-Cube-Shaped void in your life: Full-size plush (6" cube) or Fuzzy-dice-sized (4" cubes). They've got other new stuff, too, like some new Aperture Labs Propaganda Posters and an Aperture Labs Mug. […]

Sunday Dramabomb: Vivendi & Activision merge into “Activision Blizzard”

Posted by inpheaux on December 2nd, 2007 at 4:16 pm

In today's "Certainly Didn't See That Coming" news, Vivendi Games and Activision have buddied up to form "Activision Blizzard". So . . . it looks like we're down to three omni-platform super-developer/publishers now. In one corner we have EA, the only company allowed to make sports games, and who will be making sports games with […]

Deus Ex 3 formally announced. Why, Eidos, why?

Posted by inpheaux on November 26th, 2007 at 3:19 pm

Earlier in the year - much earlier - Eidos announced plans to open a new big fancy studio in Montreal. Ok, fine, all kinds of developers have studios in Montreal, most notably EA and Ubisoft, but today they actually opened up. Oh and they announced that their first game would be another multi-platform Deus Ex. […]

Review Megapost: Shooters, Future Law, Gimmicks and Hobos

Posted by inpheaux on October 28th, 2007 at 8:01 pm

We've been holding onto this set for awhile. It just kept snowballing, you know? Well, here they all are in descending order of quality. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BioShock - PC / 360 - The best single-player game I've played since System Shock 2. Portal - PC / 360 (and eventually PS3) - The second-best single-player game […]

BAD END: Bioware & Pandemic gobbled-up by EA

Posted by inpheaux on October 11th, 2007 at 7:14 pm

All bad news, all the time. Out of nowhere, EA has decided that it would be super neat if they went ahead and bought-out Bioware and Pandemic, to build upon their game-development Empire of Doom. If they were another less-established pair of independent developers, sure, this would be pretty decent news, since it would mean […]

Rock Band: 360/PS3 – 23 NOV 2007 for $170, PS2 – 10 DEC 2007 for $160

Posted by inpheaux on September 28th, 2007 at 5:05 pm

Well, prices and dates are finally out, and frankly I'm pretty disappointed. Hear me out, OK. Sure, $170 is way better than $200, but there's only one version, they're making you buy a full set of Guitar, Drum Kit and Mic. I have absolutely zero interest in the Drums and Mic. Sorry guys, I just […]
