Mass Effect 2 confirmed for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3

That Electronic Arts and BioWare have been at work on a follow-up to 2007’s Mass Effect hasn’t exactly been a guarded secret. The term “Mass Effect trilogy” has been bandied about by EA brass since it acquired the studio in 2007, with CEO John Riccitiello most recently pegging the game for a multiplatform release in […]

Fallout 3 PC Review

Fallout 3 takes place in a bombed-out, futuristic version of Washington DC, and in the game, the area is bleak but oddly serene. Crumbling overpasses loom overhead and optimistic 1950’s-style billboards advertise their products with sunny catchphrases.

Resident Evil 5 Review

Microsoft Cooking Up an Enhanced Xbox 360 Controller?

I should not have been talking about this until next year, but a story of a motion sensing add-on for the Xbox 360 controller forced me to interrupt my holiday break. First, let me tell you that the image floating around with supposed prototypes of a motion sensing Xbox 360 controller is FAKE. The image […]

God Of War III Confirmed For 2009 – PlayStaion 3

Well, we were kinda hoping against hope that it would arrive in time for the 2008 holiday season, but that was probably pushing it. Provided this inside source is correct, God of War III is scheduled for release some time in 2009. The game’s composer, Cris Velasco, confirmed the title would release in 2009. Furthermore, […]
