Wheelman hits the big screen

Originally set to coincide with the release of the game, the film adaptation of Midway/Ubisoft's “Wheelman” is finally becoming a reality.

The Evolution of Piracy: Here today, but gone tomorrow because the beta leaked yesterday.

The first time I realized how bad piracy was, was when I was a tester for Electronic Arts. The game I was working on promised to be quite good,  so I asked a friend if he wanted it for Christmas. While I was still working on it he replied. " No, man, its ok, I already have it". I thought: how the hell can you have it if I’m still testing the beta version? 

Red Dead Redemption premiere trailer

While quasi announced during the Sony E3 2005 press conference the sequel to Red Dead Revolver is almost upon us and it seems like it has been worth the four year wait. 

Is Microsoft ready to jump into the motion control war?

It seems like this year is when Sony and Microsoft take on Nintendo in the motion control arena. We all have an idea of what Sony could do but with Microsoft it’s been a bit of a mystery. Last year it was the rumored Newton motion controller that was a rampant rumor before E3 but instead what we got was the stuff like the Lips and We Love Movies announcements.

TMNT gets the remake treatment with Turtles in Time

After the release of Bionic Commando: Rearmed last year many gamers have been aching for HD remixes of classic games.

It seems to be that we’re in luck as another game is getting the HD remix treatment although it’s a game that we weren’t really expecting: a remake of the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game “Turtles in Time.”

Dead to Rights is back from the dead for retribution

One of the few games to be released in the post Max Payne era that turned out to be good was Namco’s Dead to Rights.  The game managed to establish its own gritty noir narrative while also having fun combat and unique scenarios that kept the action fresh. And how could you not like a game where you had a companion in the form of a dog that you could command to maul various enemies?

Xbox 360 exclusive Bionic Commando multiplayer demo impressions.

The original Bionic Commando for the NES is something that will always stand out in my mind. It was the first game that really instilled the concept for me of playing within the rules of a game. Instead of hating game play for lacking something (like for example the ability to jump). I began understanding why a decision like that would be made in your standard platformer, and began to wrap my head around the concept of a standard platformer now incorporating puzzle-based strategy.

New Dead Rising 2 Trailer Impressions

If you're an ADD gamer, with a taste for zombies, gore, and mall-rating like myself; then one of your favorite games of the last couple of years was Dead Rising for the Xbox 360.

Capcom announces Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes

One of the most popular fighting games to have been released in the past 10 years was the Marvel vs. Capcom series.

It has certainly been a long wait but now fans will be getting a follow-up to Marvel vs. Capcom in the form of Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes for the PSN and Xbox Live Arcade.
