Hopeful Wishing Time: Microsoft Reportedly Renews Killer Instinct Trademarks

A true megaton could be upon us based on the latest trademark registration Microsoft has made. Either that or we’re in for a true disappointment of such epic proportions that gamers could enter such a zone of jadedness that their souls are forever imprisoned within the Phantom Zone.  The Microsoft acquisition of Rare has proven to be a bust based on what has transpired in the last five years, but one of the flagship properties of the company may return: Killer Instinct.

Metal Gear Rising Hands-on [PAX Prime 2012]

I’ve said, since I got my Sonic Team logo tattoo, that if I hadn’t gone with Sonic for permanent ink/nerd-cred I would have paid respect to Kojima-san by getting a Foxhound tattoo. So when Metal Gear Rising was first shown, I found myself a little leery, to say the least, at the concept of breaking the entire Metal Gear/tactical espionage genre being cast to the way-side in favor of a ridiculous, over-the-top action/adventure title.

Injustice: Gods Among Us Hands-on [PAX Prime 2012]

I have a fair few passions in life, video games, music, movies, TV and the like… but two of the front-runners that have shaped my experiences throughout my life are that of fighting games and comic books. That’s why, since its announcement, I have been keeping a very close eye on Injustice: Gods Among Us, and why I made a special point to swing by the WB Games booth as soon as humanly possible to check out what’s next from NetherRealm.

Assassin's Creed III Preview [PAX Prime 2012]

Hopefully by now you’ve had an opportunity to peruse our awards from PAX Prime 2012. If you haven’t, take a quick peek, because I’m about to go into full-on fanboy mode for our Best of Show winner: Assassin’s Creed III.

Far Cry 3 Hands-on [PAX Prime 2012]

Here’s the problem I have with the Far Cry series, as a whole: It demos really, really well. Every single time they put a demo out there, and I go hands-on for the first time, I find myself absolutely blown away. The problem being that the games themselves, when you get that full-version game you’re so excited for, always seem to drop the ball somehow.

Halo 4 Hands-on [PAX Prime 2012]

Microsoft has a tendency to drop the ball when it comes to PAX. Their booth is hardly ever the largest, or most impressive at the show… Though an argument can be made in the favor due to the titles that they tend to have. This year’s showing offered up game-play time with sequels to two of their biggest franchises: Halo and Gears of War. I wound up getting play time with both, but it was Halo 4 that caught my attention…

Stunt Fans Rejoice: Joe Danger 2 Is Finally Given A Release Date

The fine chaps over at Hello Games have finally finished their ode to the classic era of over-the-top stunts and cartoons as Joe Danger 2: The Movie has a release date. Announced last year to the merriment of gamers, Joe Danger 2 looked to retain the same core elements found in its predecessor all while including a plethora of new stuntastic scenarios that would make any daredevil gamer smile with glee.

Best of PAX Prime 2012

First of all, before the merriment of an award ceremony (in text format) I want to offer a quick apology for our readership. This year’s PAX Prime information will be coming to you a day (or rather a couple of days late) due to an unhealthy amount of poor planning on our part, in conjunction with some rather unfortunate circumstances…

TwistedPixel Reveals First Footage Of Lococycle, Looks Absolutely Crazy

Microsoft's E3 press conference this year may have had some high and low moments, but aside from the ever boring Kinect segments the attention of gamers was grabbed when MS showed off their exclusives. Besides heavyweights such as Gears and Forza, Microsoft made a splash with their upcoming XBLA exclusives. One XBLA teaser trailer that was a high point, almost in a "lol, wut?" sort of way, was TwistedPixel's Lococycle.

New State of Decay Video Offers A Glimpse Of Base Building

After being in development for ages with only small glimpses shown here and there, Undead Labs finally gave us a proper look at their 3rd person survival-action zombie game State of Decay. Bound for XBLA, State of Decay may seem like nothing more than the latest game to cash in on the still popular zombie fad, but beneath the head popping action the game provides is an experience which is rooted deep in fort building and making the best decisions to stay alive.
