Crytek's Kinect Brawler Ryse Is Still Alive For Now

 

Games come and go either because they get cancelled or they get released only to earn fame or in some cases earn a decent amount of scorn and hatred.  The video game business is an interesting one as there are also games which we forget about simply because they disappear and we’re too busy to notice.  With half a dozen games announced every couple of months and people being preoccupied playing new releases, it’s not too uncommon for known games to be forgotten about since they only show up once a year.  

E3 Hands on with Mad Catz World War II Arcade Flight Game Damage Inc.

Known world wide for their high-end video game accessories, Mad Catz is publishing their first videogame, but is it any good?

Titled Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII, the game will have players step into the cockpit of a variety of World War II era fighter planes while offering a complete campaign mode, along with a variety of multiplayer options, including co-op.

Dishonored E3 Impressions: One of the best games at E3.

One of the games I was personally excited to check out was Dishonored, a brand new IP that is currently under development at Arkane Studios.

In the game you’ll assume the first person role of Corvo Atano, a bodyguard who is seeking revenge against Lord Regent who framed him for the Assassination of the Empress he was sworn to protect.

Along with a slew of Victorian steam punk style weapons, Corvo also possesses great supernatural powers and gadgets... a crap load of them.

Ubisoft E3 2012 Confrence Recap & Impressions

After experiencing the awkward 2011 E3 showing from Ubisoft (the one where they announced they invented laser tag), I wasn’t really sure what to expect from them this year. What Ubisoft ended up delivering was a streamlined presentation that catered directly to its core E3 audience.

New Mini Ninjas Game Bound For Kinect

So far 2012 has promised us a more core centric array of Kinect releases in the form of Steel Battalion and Crimson Dragon, both of which could become the go to game for Kinect owners.  The amount of Kinect based shovelware may not be going anytime soon, especially when one considers the recent reveal of Harry Potter Kinect, but it seemed like things were back on track. Well at this point we could be going back to receiving the somewhat mehtacular Kinect offerings we’re used to seeing and this time it involves none other than Mini Ninjas.

WB Announces Harry Potter Kinect (No This Isn't A Joke)

With the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 it seemed like the Harry Potter franchise had come to a complete close in just about every regard.  The tales of Harry Potter were obviously over as creator J.K. Rowling had vowed against writing future Potter books but even more it seemed like the video game entries in the Harry Potter franchise were done as well.  

Mass Effect 3: Rebellion Pack DLC Incoming Next Week

Bioware today officially revealed the contents of their new Mass Effect 3 Rebellion DLC Pack whose content was apparently leaked a couple of weeks ago.

The Rebellion DLC Pack arrives next week on Tuesday, May 29 and will be available to download for free via Xbox Live, Sony's PlayStation Network and the PC. If you live in the UK area then you have to wait just one extra day (May 30) to download the new DLC for the PS3 version.

Borderlands 2 Special Editions' Content Finally Revealed.

Back during this year's PAX East, Gearbox Software gave Borderlands fans a sneak peek at two pieces of Borderland themed goodies that will be included within two different Collector's Edition versions of Borderlands 2 that will release along with the standard version.

We got to see a Marcus Kincaid bobble head doll and Loot Chest replica and finally today Gearbox has revealed what other loot fans can expect that will come with the two different Collector's Editions.

Rare Could Be Going Back To Form On The Next-Gen Xbox

There have been quite a few injustices done in the video game industry, but one that still has gamers in complete scorn mode is how Microsoft has handled Rare. The prolific studio behind games such as GoldenEye and Conker’s Bad Fur Day, the purchase of Rare by Microsoft didn’t seem all that bad when it happened in 2002.  The $375 million sum Microsoft spent on acquiring Rare was certainly one to balk at, but the prospect of Microsoft tapping into the talent Rare possessed seemed like it would’ve been a dream scenario.

Kinect and Wii U Superhero Action Is Coming With The Avengers: Battle For Earth

Seeing as how the movie made a bazillion dollars in a mere week, Ubisoft and Marvel decided to let the cat out of the bag by announcing The Avengers: Battle For Earth.  Hinted at last weekend, Ubisoft is indeed making a game based on Earth’s mightiest heroes but there are a few surprises in store which could make the game either a mega hit or an unbearable disappointment in the eyes of gamers and comic book fans.
