Savage Moon Preview

PAX was really the place to be when it came to fun releases for the online market.  This little title will be gracing the PlayStation Network later this year.  It’s basically just a really nice tower defense game.  If you don’t know what this is, then it is basically just a quick version of an RTS.  You put down defensive towers to stem back a nearly endless wave of enemies.  Savage Moon features a complex base defence against hordes of bugs. ... 

Crash Commando Preview

This little beauty showed up at PAX.  Imagine that Super Smash Bros and Metal Slug had a little mutated baby.  That’s what you’re going to get with Crash Commando.  It offers a side-scrolling experience for single player gaming and a party version reminiscent of Smash Bros.  It focuses more on a plethora of weapons and explosives to tear apart the rich environment and obviously cause a whole bunch of gibs.  It will be released on the PlayStation... 

Bayonetta Preview

This sounds like a fun little game for the consoles.  It is an action series that features a witch fighting a bunch of evil angels with a bunch of guns, swords, and supernatural powers.  I’m pretty much sold.  The graphics from the early screenshots look amazing and they are promising persistant damage on the game’s bosses.  It may just be another action game, but it sounds like it’s bringing some fun stuff to the table.  Read More →

Resistance 2 Preview

This sequel looks like it could really step up and be amazing.  The single player has been amped up a bit for more intense play, but they’re a little tight lipped about it for now.  The good news comes from the multiplayer arena.  There is a separate and full co-op campaign that can host up to eight players at a time.  That pales in comparison to the multiplayer, which promises up to 60 people in multi-level maps.  I hope that they can pull off Team... 

Legendary Preview

You get to shotgun werewolves and shoot rockets at griffins.  Do I honestly have to say anything else?  This looks like a really cool first-person shooter.  It’s basically the same as Call of Duty in it’s interface.  You’ll just be fighting hordes of mythical creatures instead of the usual Germans.  This really looks amazing with a good variety amongst the enemies.  Early reports are that you’ll actually have to alter your gameplay. ... 

LittleBigPlanet Sneak Peek

I honestly don’t even know what to say about this game.  It combines basic platforming with full physics games.  Each level basically works like a little playground with a ton of ways to win.  You can build platforms with sticks, use stickers on walls, play around with dark matter, navigate bridges, etc.  I don’t think a basic platformer has ever looked so polished and good. The big draw is all the social options though.  User-created content... 

Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty

This should be a fun treat for fans of the series.  This isn’t a full sequel to Tools of Destruction.  Instead, it focuses on about 4 hours of solid platforming as Ratchet tries to find out what happened to Clank.  Clank’s absence means some serious changes for the gameplay.  More efforts have been put into acrobatics and wrench play.  The wrench now has the ability to act as a grappling hook or even a light gravity gun.  The best news is... 

Tomb Raider: Underworld Update

It seems that we have a new Lara Croft adventure to look forward to.  I won’t say that any of the new screenshots look groundbreaking, but it sounds like a good addition to the franchise.  The graphics look pretty good for a pre-build and the gameplay sounds interesting.  They’ve added a grappling hook to make for more acrobatics and the maps look a lot more non-linear than the previous incarnations.  It’s at least something to keep an... 

RE5’s Co-Op Play

Resident Evil 5 just demonstrated a few new levels for their game right as they gave the release date (March 13th 2009).  It included all the standard Resident Evil stuff.  There are mobs of crazed enemies and lots of intense running and fighting.  The graphics are sharp too.  That’s really all I can say.  They didn’t try to reinvent the wheel with this one so it doesn’t seem like much has changed from RE 4. The one cool addition was... 

A Cry in the Night

The latest look at Far Cry 2 is pretty promising.  They just unleashed a nighttime demonstration for the Pipeline mission.  In general it holds all the basics of Far Cry that the old fans will like.  You can sneak around and use silenced darts to knock out guards and eventually rush in to finish the rest off.  The mechanics look smooth and the tactics seem to be amped up a bit. More important though is the consideration that is being put into this.  Ubisoft...
