Activision announces Blur

This year is quite interesting for racing fans as you have the upcoming Split/Second which according to the developers at Black Rock will revitalize the dying out racing genre. Besides Split/Second you also have upcoming games like Forza MotorSport 3, MX vs. ATV: Reflex and perhaps if we’re lucky some sort of Gran Turismo 5 and Twisted Metal news later this year.

The latest Kojima teaser continues to get people excited

The madness around the mysterious Kojima project countdown is continuing with the previous countdown being merely a countdown for another countdown. Rapid internet fanboys are ablaze with the latest update to the site being either a 5 or an S and off course the popular and somewhat blind decision among many is that it’s a 5 and that means “OMG MGS5 is coming soon!” It’s also a bit presumptuous to assume the S could also stand for Solid Snake as it could also be for this:

Is Criterion going to develop the next Need For Speed game?

A few months ago a rumor popped up that involved Criterion, the makers of the Burnout franchise, taking over an installment of the Need for Speed franchise. At the time many simply brushed the rumor aside as it seemed odd that EA would have Criterion work on an installment of the series especially since Burnout Paradise was just released at the time.

New Bionic Commando gameplay trailer shows off impressive environments

New footage of Bionic Commando shows off some of its incredible dynamic lighting, lens effects and detailed environments. The amount of diversity in settings and landscapes in this trailer is very impressive. You'll also be treated to a glimpse at a completely aerial battle against a seemingly endless sea of wasp-like robots.

New Mass Effect 2 trailer

So far not a lot of media has been released for Mass Effect 2 with the exception of an extremely brief teaser trailer and some leaked footage from GDC. Thankfully it seems Bioware is ready to show us everything we can expect with ME2 next month at E3 and they're already teasing us with this "Prelude to E3" trailer.

The trailer isn't awe-inspiring but if you're a Mass Effect fan it'll definately get you hyped up based on what the developers promise to be in ME2 and it does have a few small snippets of footage so it's definately worth checking out.

 

 

Tony Hawk plans on taking you for a Ride

When the first Tony Hawk game was released it was a massive hit that was the first game to really capture what skating is all about. The game then became a massive franchise that helped make skating more mainstream and acceptable. Like any good franchise each installment in the Tony Hawk series added new features and improved visuals that really improved the product and it’s widely regarded that Tony Hawk 3 is the pinnacle in the series.

THQ announces MX vs. ATV: Reflex

If games like Motorstorm: Pacific Rift and Pure didn’t wet your appetite for off road action then you’re in luck as THQ today announced the latest installment in the MX vs. ATV series, MX vs. ATV: Reflex.

Rebellion discusses Alien vs. Predator

When it comes to the Alien vs. Predator franchise I’m usually a bit more critical of it mainly because I love both characters. As a kid I watched the Alien and Predator movies and fell in love with them and dreamed of when these two characters would perhaps team up somehow or perhaps face off against one another. This dream finally came true in the early 90s with the Dark Horse Alien vs. Predator comic which I read along with the novelization which came out a few years later.

Hideo Kojima is up to his old tricks again

Over the years we’ve come to know Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima as somewhat of a trickster who has no problem playing tricks or practical jokes on his audience. As you may have read by now on reputable and not so reputable gaming sites it seems like Mr. Kojima is up to his usual tricks again. This time it’s in the form of a mysterious magazine ad and a blank page on the Kojima Productions website.
