TriForce Unveils Their SDCC Catwoman Trophy

TriForce announced their San Diego Comic Con exclusive today – a 1:1 scale Catwoman version of their insanely cool riddler trophies.  Just like in Arkham City, the trophy will glow pink thanks to built in USB-powered LED effects (although, unlike the game, these will not electrocute you when you try to grab them).

PAX East 2012: Max Payne 3

Rockstar Games’ booth at PAX East 2012 was host to a slick visual design, thumping house beats, piles of swag and, most importantly, a playable build of a game that I’ve been anticipating for nearly a decade: Max Payne 3. As such, that was my very first stop at this year’s convention and I’m happy to say that it didn’t disappoint– in fact, any doubt that I had in my mind after Rockstar’s brief presentation at NYCC 2011 is now gone, replaced with joy and anticipation. Max Payne has returned in a big way and fans of the series have much to look forward to. Continue reading “PAX East 2012: Max Payne 3” »

We were able to go hands-on with a demo of Gearbox’s soon-to-be-blockbuster and can tell you that it’s already shaping up to be one hell of a shooter — employing all the stylish flair and fast-paced action that made its predecessor so memorable while refining nearly every aspect of the first game’s winning formula.

PAX East 2012: Assassin’s Creed III

The sight of droves of PAX East attendees carrying around inflatable tomahawks could only mean one thing– Assassin’s Creed III had arrived. Ubisoft had an enormous black booth set up for the game with nothing on the outside but the crest of the Assassin Order and the roman numerals “III”. Inside the booth was a gameplay video that showed off many new aspects of the title that players can look forward to.  Even though it’s still a work in progress, the gameplay looked incredibly polished and it seems like Ubisoft Montreal are making some serious changes for the better.
