PAX Prime 2014: Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Hands-On Preview

Not One Ring in Sight Mordor used to be a nice place. Mighty stone structures dotted the landscape, fields of lush grass lined the planes, and Uruk herded slaves throughout the region. It’s a deceptively pretty world I got to explore in Monolith Productions’ Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. If it weren’t for ...

PAX Prime 2014: Fortified Hands-On Preview

Verb of the Adjective Noun from Location 50′s B-movie sci-fi World War II alien invasion tower defense, plus jetpacks. You’re welcome, SEO. Fortified is a third-person shooter/tower defense hybrid from Clapfoot Games.

PAX Prime 2014: This War of Mine Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: This War of Mine Hands-On Preview

The Call of Duty Goes Unheard This War of Mine was my PAX Prime 2014 game of the show. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, allow me to explain exactly why I think that. This War of Mine is a sort of “what if?” story of my life, your life, ...

PAX Prime 2014: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Hands-On Preview

Come With Me Now What if I told you the next Borderlands game consisted of fifty percent playable bad guys, twenty-five percent anti-heroines, and twenty-five percent annoying orange robot? Would you scream and cry? Would you shout to the heavens, “by god, they’ve done it!”? Would you ask, “does it take place ...

PAX Prime 2014: Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell Hands-On Preview

My first trek down the show floor of PAX Prime 2014 went something like this: “oh boy, I get to see the new Volition game they’re revealing here! I wonder what it is!” Then I glanced to my right, and just past the Metro Redux displays was Saints Row: Gat Out ...

PAX Prime 2014: Minimum Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: Minimum Hands-On Preview

My demo with Atari’s Minimum, or “how I trekked over a mile from the Seattle Convention Center to go to the top floor of a really expensive-looking hotel and demo Atari’s Minimum” (we’re still working on the strapline) was very different from the rest of my experiences at PAX. More casual, more ...

Until Dawn: PAX Prime 2014 Preview: Campy Meets Bloodbath

Until Dawn: PAX Prime 2014 Preview: Campy Meets Bloodbath

I was told Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn was a campy “I Know What You Did Last Summer” take on the action adventure game, closer to something you might have seen in the Sega CD classic Night Trap. The conceit behind the game is that you are part of a group ...

PAX Prime 2014: Escape Dead Island Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: Escape Dead Island Hands-On Preview

The last words I expected to describe a Dead Island game with were “third-person stealth/action psychological horror”. But it’s true; in developer Fatshark’s spinoff to the zombie slaughter simulator, you play as Cliff, a college student rich-kid douchebag that decides to make a name for himself by uncovering the government coverup of ...

PAX Prime 2014: Dead Island 2 Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: Dead Island 2 Hands-On Preview

Very rarely does a game put a smile to my face. Perhaps it was when I kicked a zombie with such force that it flew back thirty feet and exploded into a bloody smear on a house, or when I grabbed a walker by the throat and snapped its neck ...

PAX Prime 2014: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Hands-On Preview

Hotline Miami is kind of like the Alice Cooper of indie games. Alice Cooper came into popularity when Rock & Roll wasn’t the Rock & Roll we know today. The ’60s were a time for peace, love, and all the other flower power bullshit that took over the scene, but ...
