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

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 ...

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 ...

Firefall Review (PC)

Firefall Review (PC)

Even though it’s been available (albeit in a closed access state) since 2011, Firefall has recently come out of its beta phase and onto Steam for the low price of zero dollars. After such a long development period, a lot about the game has changed. It’s still an MMOFPS, just as it ...

Kingston HyperX Cloud White Review (Headset)

Kingston HyperX Cloud White Review (Headset)

Big Bang, Little Buck You know it’s going to be a gaming headset when the product you’ve got in your hands is called the “Kingston HyperX Cloud“. That’s a name only a gamer could love (or make sense of, but only barely). Amid all the SteelSeries number-letters and Razer creepy-animals, ...

Titanfall: Frontier’s Edge Review (PC)

Titanfall: Frontier’s Edge Review (PC)

I may have been a bit too kind to Titanfall. While it was a fantastic game, two glaring flaws have become apparent since I started playing it way back at launch week. First, there is not enough content here to justify the $60 price tag. Granted, that price has dropped ...
