  • Fuse hands-on preview - lethal teamwork with attitude

    Formerly known as Overstrike, Fuse has faced a lot of changes over the course of its development cycle. Insomniac Games' third-person, co-op shooter not only received a complete overhaul of its weapons and graphics, but also faced major plot changes and a shift in pace, switching from stealth-based ...

  • Hands-on with Zombie Tycoon 2: RTS action on PS3 and PS Vita

    Many people may not remember the PlayStation Mini Zombie Tycoon. Released in 2009, the game is a strategy title set against the backdrop of a zombie apocalypse, as you might have guessed. Being a PS Mini however, it was fairly limited in terms of an overall gameplay experience. This time however, th...

  • Diablo III hands-on impressions - a PAX East preview

    Since the PlayStation 4 announcement, I've had a metric ton of questions about how Diablo 3 would perform on a game pad. Granted Blizzard has reworked the game quite a bit to suite a different play style with console gamers, but I’m ecstatic to report that it works, and works very well. Direc...

  • Painkiller: Hell & Damnation hands-on - old-school shooter has a new makeover

    While many modern-day shooters seek to impress with sparkling production values, in-depth narrative and more features than an issue of Edge magazine, Painkiller: Hell & Damnation keeps it real, taking us on a nostalgic trip down memory lane by focusing on simple, yet effective, FPS mechanics and...

  • Hands-on with The Last of Us: the past, present, and future of survival horror

    Twenty years after the outbreak of a fungal epidemic that ravages the United States, some of humanity's last remaining occupy a quarantine zone in Boston. Martial law dictates that any man, woman, or child stupid enough to step out of line or venture outside the camp will be shot on sight. So it is ...

  • God of War: Ascension hands-on

    Much ado has been given to the highly-publicized multiplayer component of God of War: Ascension, leaving longtime Kratos fans to wonder whether the titular Spartan anti-hero's story will be left by the wayside. I'm not sure why Sony Santa Monica has been so tight-lipped about Ascension's solo advent...

  • Hands-on with Tearaway, the PS Vita game that will charm and delight you

    Next to nothing has been said or revealed about Media Molecule's upcoming PlayStation Vita exclusive since its reveal at last year's Gamescom, so it was with great interest and wonder that I sat down to play a 20-minute portion of the game at a press event today. I walked away both charmed and delig...

  • Hands-on with Killzone Mercenary, PS Vita's first benchmark shooter

    When I think of first-person-shooters on PlayStation Vita, the image of a cinematic, enthralling, and console-quality experience is not what appears in my head. Rather, I see bite-sized missions, cramped gameplay, and artistic compromises. Killzone Mercenary has none of these things. After hands...

  • DmC: Devil May Cry hands-on video preview of first 10 levels

    With a new Devil May Cry developer looking to give Capcom’s hack n’ slash franchise a fresh impetus, it’s no wonder that some fans of Dante’s demon killing exploits are slightly concerned that Ninja Theory may not do the game justice. The fact that Dante looks like he’s...

  • Wonderbook: Book Of Spells preview - bringing the magic to life

    A good book has the power to ignite your imagination and take you on a journey where you can walk through its pages in your mind as if living the experience. The Harry Potter series has the power to do just that. Anyone who has read J. K. Rowling’s work will have visualised what it’s lik...

  • Behind Dust 514 - Understanding CCP's PS3 exclusive MMO shooter

    If you were watching Sony's E3 presser in 2011 you may recall the announcement from CCP, the Icelandic studio behind the spaceship MMO EVE Online, of a PS3 exclusive called DUST 514. Company CEO Hilmar Pétursson revealed the title as a persistent shooter focused on ground combat and planetary...

  • Hands-on with PS Vita Indies - Big Sky Infinity, Knytt Underground and Panic!

    There’s a shed load of cash ploughed into videogames in order to create blockbuster multi-million pound franchises that deliver epic encounters and blur the lines between fantasy and reality, but Indie developers have long been creating games that are just as much fun to play as those big-budg...

  • Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault Preview

    Full Frontal Assault, the next installment of the highly-championed Sony exclusive Ratchet & Clank series, which is doing a second outing on the Playstation Network here in the US, seems to have found a love for tower defense. This new gameplay flare is not only much needed, but seems to fit wel...

  • The Unfinished Swan Hands-on

    There’s something quite therapeutic about holding the PlayStation Move controller in the palm of your hand and magically flicking black blobs of paint onto a white canvas, but Giant Sparrow’s The Unfinished Swan isn’t just a game with a gimmick. At the start, players use black pai...

  • DOA5 hands-on showcases much more than jiggling breasts

    Dead or Alive’s female characters are simply stunning to look at, but there’s much more to Team Ninja’s brawler than just curves, jiggling breasts and fluttering eye-lashes. In our behind-the-scenes look at Dead or Alive 5, in the company of series producer Yosuke Hayashi, we also...
