  • E3 2012: Tomb Raider might give Uncharted a run for its money

    This morning, as soon as security started letting us E3 2012 attendees shamble our way onto the show floor, I immediately headed over to the Square-Enix booth. Tomb Raider was on the top of my list—not because I was particularly interested in Lara Croft’s reboot, but because I just n...

  • FIFA Soccer 13 Preview: New features and calculated unpredictability

    FIFA 13 is arguably the most realistic sports game we have ever seen. Arriving this fall, EA’s upcoming addition to its prime soccer franchise aims to raise the bar higher than ever, and leave competitors in the dust (or in this case, in the grass). But how does EA plan to stay ahead of the co...

  • Hands-on with Borderlands 2: refining Pandora, smarter bandits, badass weapons

    There are some great games coming out later this year, but it’s going to be hard to top Borderlands 2. That’s the feeling I got after spending about 90 minutes with the game yesterday and chatting with some of the guys working on the follow-up to the hit 2009 Borderlands. It was ab...

  • Preview: Resistance: Burning Skies

    Sony created PlayStation Vita with core gamers in mind by giving developers a quality piece of hardware that, for the first time in the history of handhelds, provides a serious platform which they can harness to produce console-like gaming experiences on the small screen. On launch day, Uncharted: ...

  • Hands-on with Sorcery, the PlayStation Move wand-waving adventure

    Do you know where your PlayStation Move controller is? It took me three days to find my rude-shaped peripheral before I could play Sorcery. That really boils down to the fact that there just hasn't been many games that have excited me enough to get it out and wave it around like a glow-stick at a ra...

  • Hands-on with Lollipop Chainsaw: What the !@#$ is going on?

    If you were at PAX East last weekend, you know about Lollipop Chainsaw. There’s no way around it – you would have noticed the long lines to play the demo, the school bus, Suda 51 hanging out, and let’s not forget the brow-raising cosplay by Jessica Nigri (which actually led to he...

  • Hands-On Preview: Top 5 reasons why Darksiders II is (mostly) great

      If you’ve been paying attention -- and you should be -- then you’d know that back in January we gave you our first impressions of THQ’s upcoming sequel to Darksiders. We introduced Death, the lead protagonist in Darksiders II, and outlined some new features and mechanics in...

  • Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends Preview - driving history

    If you know absolutely nothing about cars and racing games, you likely still know the name Ferrari. As kids we dreamed of cruising around some scenic Italian countryside behind the wheels of a prestigious, glossy red sports machine. The older we get, the more that dream seems just that—a d...

  • Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Preview: bigger, better, more Bruticus

    Almost two years ago, High Moon Studios released Transformers: War for Cybertron: a game that our own Steven Williamson summarized as “The best game to ever don the Transformers logo.” I don’t disagree with him either; I played the game through to completion twice (medium and har...

  • Prototype 2 Preview: Shape-shifting has never been this fun, gross

    Remember Prototype? It was that superhero game that came out around the same time as inFamous back in 2009. For some reason, a lot of you chose to side with either one or the other, in an attempt to swear your allegiance to only one open-world superhero game. Either way, whether you...

  • The Darkness II Preview

    Our local Fox news channel here in Washington, D.C., recently took a very stern, almost apocalyptic look at modern comic books. The reporter decried that the days of Archie are long gone, and in its peachy place are full-length comics filled with over-the-top gore, women wearing exceptionally provoc...

  • Darksiders II Preview

      Full disclosure: at the time of writing this preview, I’ve yet to finish Darksiders. Having spent a few hours with the game, I found myself unable to see it through to the end. It’s not because it was a particularly bad game, but there was just nothing there to keep me coming bac...

  • Need for Speed: The Run streamlines online racing

    Like past installments, Need for Speed: The Run includes many competitive features such as online racing, the Autolog system, and multiple modes to play. However, it has added one new aspect to the system that EA Black Box is hoping will prove a compelling feature coming into the holiday season. Doe...

  • Uncharted 3 multiplayer impressions

    What can be expected from a franchise such as Naughty Dog? Well, Naughty Dog knows what a good game needs, since they've done it twice already this generation and many times before it. The final release of the multiplayer experience in Uncharted 3 is now here for everyone to try. Does it improve on ...

  • Battlefield 3 Co-op Preview

    Just like our preview of the single-player campaign mode of Battlefield 3, PSU sat down to see what the game's multiplayer co-op mode had to offer in EA and DICE's latest attempt to be the prime first-person shooter on the market this holiday season. Battlefield 3 features online two-player co-op...
