Review: The Amazing Spider-Man – The Game

by on July 23, 2012 >> PS3ReviewsXbox

The Amazing Spider-Man is a strange game in that it’s a sequel to a movie that many people wrote off simply because it’s a reboot of a film franchise that ended less than a decade ago. For that reason alone many of the people who might want to play this game, which is actually rather well done, may be turned off. The story picks up moments after the movie ends and right away spoils who lives an dies in the film as well as many other events pertaining to the characters and how they relate to each other. For that reason talking about the game’s story will be incredibly limited in this review. But to see if it’s worthy of adding to your collection, renting or passing over, keep reading.

Review: Modern Warfare 3 Single Player Campaign

by on November 8, 2011 >> PCPS3ReviewsXbox

Modern Warfare 3

It’s November: the leaves are turning colors and piling up in yards, grocery stores are filled with turkeys, and Christmas music is rapidly becoming inescapable during waking hours. Another yearly November occurrence is Call of Duty. Since the powers that be have decided we need a yearly installment, I think it would be a lot less confusing if they followed the naming conventions of other yearly series like Madden. Just call it “CoD 2011”. It seems like such a mouthful to have these long titles with colons like “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3”. The only way I can get behind this is if they give each installment a fun subtitle like “Soap on the Ropes” or “The Price is Right”. In any case, you’re probably wondering if this game brings the goods. Find out after the break.

PAX Preview: GoldenEye 007: Reloaded

by on August 28, 2011 >> PAXPreviewsPS3Xbox

You know that game Call of Duty? Well imagine it with less duty calling and more zeros and a seven and you’ve got GoldenEye 007: Reloaded for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The AI is dumbed way down, as in if there’s a guy standing three feet in front of you he’ll still miss by at least five feet for seconds at a time. Enemies aren’t really characters, they’re just polygon shapes standing waiting to die. This game feels like a Wii game uprezzed to HD (which it is) only with far worse controls. The camera just spins wildly with a flick of the thumb, and just about every action is unresponsive and feels wrong. That satisfying shotgun blast to the face feeling? Nowhere to be found here.

The only good thing I can say is this: if you play with a Move, the controls probably won’t suck.

Call of Duty: Zombies on the Moon – Behind the Scenes

by on August 11, 2011 >> PCPS3VideosXbox

From the Rezurrection Map Pack which includes four old Zombie maps from World at War and the new Moon map for fifteen bucks. Coming to Xbox on August 23rd (and PS3 and PC at a later date). As always, fifteen bucks is ridiculously expensive for a map pack, but I can’t disagree with zombies in space. Bouncing, floating, and eating brains, yay.

Goldeneye 007 will ‘reload’ on Xbox 360 and PS3

by on July 19, 2011 >> NewsPS3Xbox

If you wanted to play Goldeneye 007 but couldn’t be bothered to dust off your Wii, then good news – it’s apparently coming to Xbox 360 and PS3. Videogamer.com posted a bunch of screens up from the game, and they’re not looking too shabby. I know Kent really enjoyed this on the Wii, so I’d expect the 360/PS3 versions to be even better. We’ll let you know as soon as some official info is released.

Golden Eye 007 Reloaded in the Future? WE CALLED THIS WEEKS AGO!

by on June 27, 2011 >> E3 2011PS3Xbox


Joystiq is reporting that a new domain name has been registered by Activision and they are as follows “GoldenEyeReloadedGame.com,” “GoldenEye007GameReloaded.com,” “GoldenEyeReloaded007.com” and “GoldenEye007Reloaded.com”. Speculation on this is that it’s a redone version of the Wii Exclusive title which was far better than the blood diamond themed Xbox 360 and PS3 Bond game that hit at the same time. Personally we’re not surprised by this at all since a giant 007 logo was featured prominently during the Playstation press conference right after showing off Move properties.

The Wii title from 2010 was a huge hit, brought some hard core couch based multiplayer back to the Wii and is honestly the only game I have for the system.

What is Call of Duty Elite? Watch this video to find out

by on May 31, 2011 >> NewsPCPS3VideosXbox

If Call of Duty Elite is something like “if organized sports and social networking had a baby” then my interest level is officially at zero (especially if I’m going to have to pay for it), but I suppose there are people that would want this and for them this trailer will be super exciting.

For the rest of us, that guy’s face pretty much sums things up (and damn it YouTube, you better not change that thumbnail). Your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.

[edit] The face is a little bit different now, but I’d say it does the job just as well.

[edit] hey everyone… Kent here. Now I just watched this trailer for the first time and I have to say something… There is no The Legend of Karl… That voice sounded awfully familiar to me, and then I popped in Cloverfield. Sure enough, that’s T.J. Miller aka HUD from Cloverfield… you know, the guy holding the camera the whole damn film? Yeah that guy. I’d like to say that I think Activision has really dropped the ball on this one by not actually using one of the major gamers in the COD: BLOPS scene, but instead going with a lesser known hollywood actor.

1st Teaser for StarCraft 2: Part 2 (Heart of the Swarm)

by on May 28, 2011 >> PCVideos

Unfortunately the quality’s not so great, but hey, when a teaser leaks out into YouTube, what can you expect. And on the plus side, if you’re running a less than stellar PC rig (much like the one I used when playing StarCraft 2: Part 1) then this is probably a pretty good indication of how the cutscenes will look, just not as choppy.

Check out the video for now, and we’ll let you know whenever that release date decides to drop.
