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.

Microsoft Flight is a Free to Play PC Flight Sim. We’re in!

by on January 4, 2012 >> CESNewsPC

Microsoft has been king of flight simulators for more than a decade. Some set ups are so robust that they mimic actual cockpits, and many pilots use it to keep sharp and train. It’s simply fantastic. But now we have a free to play version coming out, which will debut at CES. Simply called Microsoft Flight the game will feature a few planes at launch with the islands of Hawaii to buzz around. We’re guessing that this game’s nature will be that it’s free to play at start, but if you want to explore more of the world you’ll simply need to buy more content. This is great because it allows players to make the game exactly what they want it to be. Want to buzz around some gorgeous islands in a small prop plane? Go for it! Want to take off in something a little more powerful and fly from China to New York? Do it! The game will launch with the Icon A5, the definitive small sport aircraft, which looks incredible as you can see in the trailers below. For the full press release and trailers click here.

Nintendo Desperate to Show They Have Games: Part 2

by on August 15, 2011 >> 3DSVideos

And it continues, this time with a Pokémon game that looks like it would be more at home on an iPhone for 99 cents, and another video with some generic old press quotes and a few brief seconds of Mario Kart and Mario Land. I find it hard to get excited by yet another Pokémon spinoff especially for 40 bucks and even more so when you consider that the graphics here look worse than the free Pokedex “app” on the 3DS eShop. Why would I want to play something with low res models that might as well be on the DS when the newly rendered Pokemon in the Pokedex look great?

Is anyone actually excited for something like this? Sure, it’s got the Pokemon name, but it certainly isn’t pushing any boundaries or even trying to justify adding a “3” to the DS.

Click through for the press video, at least that’s got a few seconds of Mario Kart.

Nintendo Desperate to Show They Have Games

by on August 13, 2011 >> 3DSVideos

Man Nintendo needs to show that they have content at this point. With nothing coming out on the Wii that’s worth a damn, and no games on the 3DS they really have to push the idea that they do indeed have content, hence their new commercials. Dropping 80 dollars off their price tag was a massive mistake and this just goes to show why.

AppleTV Games?

I love the AppleTV. I have a 1st gen, want a 2nd gen, and if they put out a 3rd gen I’ll probably grab that too. Today Engadget dropped a bit of a hint that the in the very near future there may be support for some kind of gaming ability on the 2nd Gen Apple TV. With iOS 4.3 hitting soon, and the Beta already out, there are lines of code people are finding that could imply some kind of game support for the system. What kind of games? Our best guesses after the jump.
