0924 AC3 2

More screenshots were revealed today by Ubisoft – nine, to be exact – as promotion continued for Ubi’s big fall release, Assassin’s Creed III.  These screens run the gamut of life in American Revolution-era New England, or in the case of some of the photos, death.  Here you can see some cool explosions courtesy of Revolution-era weaponry, soldiers preparing these weapons for battle, and even some actual stabbing.  There are also some quieter and/or less […]

0921 Sleeping Dogs Feature Pic

Square Enix will be releasing several DLCs for Sleeping Dogs next month, and while none of these DLCs add anything to the main storyline, you can expect each of them to add some spice to the game and allow you to do some neat stuff you couldn’t do previously.   The Street Racer Pack would, according to the folks at Square Enix, allow players to “burn rubber on four wheels” and then some.  But don’t […]

0920 Battlefield 2

Today, September 20, marks the start of a one-week celebration of the tenth anniversary of the first-ever Battlefield title.  It’s actually eight days, as the commemoration of this landmark event in gaming will last until September 28, which is next Friday, but at any rate, the best part about the eight-day special would be the discounted prices on several Battlefield games.   Until midnight of today, you can get either one of these titles for […]

0920 Resident Evil

It is situations like this that make people wonder whether PC gaming has become an anachronistic afterthought in an era where console games are more popular.  In fact, console games seem to be losing their edge in favor of mobile-based gaming.  But we’re digressing here – the big news here is the announcement of Christian Svensson, senior vice president of Capcom.  The exec said on the Ask Capcom forums late last week that the PC […]

0919 Crysis

  Don’t expect a lot of action from EA’s new trailer for Crysis 3.  But if you consider that the trailer last just 40 seconds and is meant to focus on the upcoming title’s “summer accolades”, then there may be a relatively amount of fast-paced scenes to enjoy while waiting for Crysis 3 to become available.  Back in June, EA confirmed that it will be out by February 2013, so this quick video certainly won’t […]

0918 Zeschuk and Muzyka

  Canadian developer BioWare is back in the news and it’s not because of any fresh updates on the recently announced Dragon Age III – Inquisition or new DLC for Mass Effect 3.  The two men who founded BioWare in 1995, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, have simultaneously announced their retirement from the industry of gaming on separate blog posts.  Both discussed different ambitions in their post-gaming lives through their posts, and fortunately it looks […]

0917 Borderlands 2 Vault Hunters

  It’s been a while since Gearbox Software, in cooperation with publisher 2K Games, brought us the first Borderlands title.   A fast-paced first-person shooter set in the planet Pandora, the first Borderlands gained praise for staying true to the ideals of RPG play (e.g. looting, skill trees, management of items, etc.) but was considered by a few reviewers to be uneven in terms of storyline.  Still, it was innovative enough in its setting and overall […]

0917 Bioware

With little of the fanfare associated with major title announcements, Bioware used an open letter from executive producer Mark Darrah on the game’s official site to formally let the world know about Dragon Age III – Inquisition.   “I am pleased to confirm that we are, in fact, working on the next Dragon Age game,” said Darrah in his open letter to gamers, shortly after introducing himself and his credentials with Bioware.  “Not a big surprise to […]

0914 NBA 2K13

  The new trailer 2K Sports released today for NBA 2K13 is the realization of many a basketball fan’s dream matchup.  It showcases two of the most anticipated teams to come with the game apart from the 30 present-day NBA teams – the 1992 and 2012 U.S. Olympic basketball teams.   They’re all there – the players I rooted for (or against) in my boyhood days up against the team that won the Gold Medal […]

0913 PlanetSide 2 Feat Pic

The beta version of PlanetSide 2 can only allow you to do so much.  Players can choose whether they want to represent New Conglomerate, Terran Republic or Vanu Sovereignty, however, they are restricted to one measly continent – only Indar is playable at this time.  This isn’t due to the beta being “Planetside 2 Lite”, but rather due to the fact that only one continent is complete.  Speaking of that, Sony Online Entertainment president John […]

0913 Warfighter 1

    With less than a month and a half remaining before Medal of Honor: Warfighter makes its debut, EA released two more trailers today for the highly-anticipated title – one discussing the topic of fireteams, and the other interviewing an actual soldier who had contributed in the design and concept of Warfighter.  This comes right after the Osama-themed Zero Dark Thirty DLC was announced, a collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment promoting the film of […]

Guild Wars 2: The not so great stuff

  As with every brand new MMO that hits the market, there are sure to be a handful of annoyances and faults that found their way into the launch product of the game. Guild Wars 2 is no exception to this as despite beta testing, it still brought old baggage with it. Even though this has been resolved now, the people who rushed out to pick up Guild Wars 2 on the first day found […]

0912 Panda

Before you use World of Warcraft’s screenshot-snapping tool, you might want to think twice.  Reports emerged yesterday regarding watermarks surreptitiously embedded in each screenshot taken on WoW’s tool, containing the user’s account ID, the realm’s IP address and the screenshot’s timestamp.   According to OwnedCore, which had responded to feedback from several WoW players, the codes do not include really sensitive, personal user data.  No real names or passwords are included in these watermarks.  But […]
