  • Resident Evil 5 Hands-on

    Over the years, Resident Evil has slowly become a household name through not only its ubiquitous videogame franchise, but more recently, Sony Pictures' highly successful movie trilogy. The name is synonymous with zombies, disease, and ultimately, death by shotgun. As you can imagine, I was very exci...

  • Pure Hands-on

    A lot of people aren’t going to want to hear this, but move over MotorStorm. I had the chance to get some hands-on time with Pure and I must say that I was quite impressed. I went into the Disney Interactive booth figuring I’d be greeted with some MotorStorm knockoff that lacked any subs...

  • BioShock Eyes-on

    2K Games had an impressive media room setup with bright lights, modern furniture, free Red Bull, and a preview look into the world of Rapture on the PlayStation 3. While the Red Bull was more than enough to impress me after an exhausting day, what I was preparing to see was nothing short of extravag...

  • Resistance 2 Eyes-on

    The lights dimmed, the door closed behind us and Insomniac’s Ted Price stepped up beside the incredibly large HDTV before us. The logo for Resistance 2 popped up and I knew the moment was finally here. Price started explaining what they’ve been doing lately and discussing the choices the...

  • FaceBreaker Hands-on

    Facebreaker. It’s a word that many gamers know so long as they’ve been following anything EA related over the course of the last two months. While it hasn’t been given a great deal of marketing at present (certainly not in the same capacity as Madden or NCAA), Facebreaker is well a...

  • Fallout 3 Hands-on

    Fallout shelters are great, aren’t they? They’re always packed to the brim with awesome canned foods and powdered milk. What more could you possibly hope for? Not much, except for an awesome videogame to occupy your time. I had the chance today to test the latest installment to the Fallo...

  • inFamous Eyes-on

    [Editor's Note: I did not sign an NDA for this closed door session, nor was I told not to write my impressions of it. If this was something I was not supposed to write, I apologize fully and will take the necessary actions to remedy the situation. I was told ahead of time that if things were going t...

  • LEGO Batman: The Videogame Hands-on

    Traveller’s Tales is up to their LEGO shenanigans once again. This time around, you can expect the entire city of Gotham to be included. With benchmark franchises from the movie industry such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones already taking up several notches on their belt, they’re preparin...

  • Rock Band 2 Hands-on

    I’m sure I wasn’t the only one preparing to rock out on Tuesday as I headed into Harmonix’s private meeting booth. I walked in to the booth to immediately discover that the new Guns ‘n’ Roses album is a reality due to the fact that Rock Band 2 will be showcasing a singl...

  • Guitar Hero: Aerosmith Hands-on

    While attending the latest Activision event in San Francisco late last month, PSU was given some quality hands on time with Neversoft's upcoming title, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. Obviously inspired by the classic rock band Aerosmith (it may have been the title that gave it away), this upcoming iteratio...

  • FaceBreaker Eyes-on

    If FaceBreaker were a cheap PlayStation Network title, then we’d be gung-ho, but as of right now, the game lacks depth and caters only to the frantic button smashing newbies of fighting titles. Earlier this month during the EA Sports event, PSU.com was given a first look at the new flagshi...

  • Madden 09 Hands-on

    EA and Tiburon have set the bar high this year with Madden NFL 09, providing not only 60fps gameplay for the PlayStation 3 platform but rethinking and improving much of their game mechanics and A.I. system. For all the Madden fans out there, get excited, because this year’s edition will be wor...

  • NCAA 2009 Hands-On Preview

    [Editors Note: My entire hands-on was in regards to All-American and Heisman modes of play.  I gathered the hands-on over about 20 hours worth of gameplay.] Last week I had the chance to get some hands-on time with EA Sports’ NCAA Football 2009 before the PlayStation 3 cover announcement...

  • Soul Calibur IV Hands-On

    Namco Bandai had an updated build of its latest installment in the Soul Calibur franchise playable on PlayStation 3 at its recent Editors’ Day event. Since the game was last shown at CES, when the announcement that Darth Vader would be playable exclusively on PS3 and Yoda on Xbox 360 was made,...

  • The Bourne Conspiracy Hands-On

    Sierra Entertainment and developer High Moon Studios set up shop at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Hotel in San Francisco to show off part of three levels of the new demo of The Bourne Conspiracy. PlayStation 3 owners will be able to download the free demo beginning May 22 and the game ships June 10. A...
