A Look at Raven Squad

We covered the announcement of Raven Squad earlier.  They’ve released some new gameplay footage showing their tactical options in action.  If you didn’t know before, Raven Squad has been getting a lot of buzz because of its promise to provide a mixture of FPS action alongside RTS gameplay.  The mission that they showed started off with the two four-man squads moving in for a rescue mission.  One has more offensive options with grenades and machine... 

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3

More E3 goodness is on the way.  There is now a new update for the Red Alert series.  We have some new screenshots and a look at the new faction for the game.  This third game in the series will be a bit crazier than its Command & Conquer partner.  They’ve added a whole slew of Japanese goodness as the Rising Sun Empire.  It is basically what would happen if a J-pop star and all the transformers partnered up to fight the Soviet Union.  That’s... 

Mercenaries 2 – Personal Worries

I personally love the ideas behind the Mercenaries series.  It functions on the principle that blowing up stuff in a sandbox environment is fun.  I support that.  I’m worried by the new looks at gameplay we’ve been getting though.  There have been several times when they’ve demonstrated the gameplay as the August 31st release date draws near. One note in particular stuck out.  This is the inclusion of a grappling hook to hijack helicopters. ...

A Look at Space Siege

I think just about everyone and their charmed demon knows about the latest announcement from Blizzard. Well, it seems that Diablo 3 is now a bright speck on the horizon. This is good news for fans of the action RPG genre, but I think it is too far away to get overly excited about. I’ll take a hard look at the trailer and emerging bits of news later in the week. For now, I’d like to look at Space Siege. This upcoming release should help action RPG fans kill...

Far Cry 2 Tech Demo

For what it’s worth, I was a fan of the first few levels of the original Far Cry. I thought the game got a bit silly when the hairless mutant apes with cannons on their shoulders came into play. That being said, Ubisoft looks to redeem itself with the latest edition to Far Cry. Check out the tech demo below and be amazed. I genuinely can’t wait to get my hands on this.  Read More →
