We’ve seen some great-looking new games at this year’s Toy Fair, but no one could match the sheer volume of Cryptozoic’s output. Showcasing a staggering amount of killer upcoming titles and expansions based on both established licenses and original designs, Cryptozoic is on point to really knock it out of the park in 2013.
Dead Space returns with a third entry but, much like the reanimated, mutated corpses that have been horrifying players since the series’ inception in 2008, the franchise has suffered an unfortunate transformation. Lacking the subtlety and cohesive narrative that made the original something truly special, Dead Space 3 bears little semblance to the smart survival-horror…
Designer Vlaada Chvátil and publisher NECA/WizKids Games deliver The Lost Legion, an amazing expansion to the acclaimed Mage Knight Board Game. This supplemental piece adds a great deal of variety to an already extensive rule set while avoiding the pitfalls that some game expansions stumble into.
A spiritual successor to the cult hit MadWorld, Platinum Game’s Anarchy Reigns finally hits shelves domestically after being delayed for over six months. Unfortunately, this much-anticipated title kicks off 2013 on a bit of a flat note, offering a bland multiplayer component and forgettable campaign mode.
Looking back, 2012 was a great year for gaming. Sure, it was home to the possibly the biggest disappointment of all time followed by the second biggest, but aside from that there was much fun to be had. Let’s take a look back at the ten titles we enjoyed the most.
Far Cry 3 was released as the last big-budget title of this year’s holiday season. With the promise of open-world gaming, a gripping narrative, and a return to the tropical locales of the original, I had high hopes for it. How unfortunate that Far Cry 3 concludes 2012, not with a bang, but with the…
By now, you should have an inkling of the insanity that awaits you in a Suda51 creation. He and his development studio, Grasshopper Manufacture, have gained a reputation for their unique artistic approach and a penchant for the bizarre that can be seen in every aspect of their products. Their latest release, Black Knight Sword,…
Fans of tower defense and strategy games absolutely need to check out Nano Ninjas, the new iOS game that perfectly blends those two genres into a criminally addictive, charming, and challenging package. Keep reading for our full review.
United Front Games wishes gamers a Happy Halloween with the release of the ghoulish new “Nightmare in North Point” downloadable episode for Sleeping Dogs. Resuming the role of Wei Shen, this DLC pack places you back into the familiar streets of Hong Kong, now with 100% more ghosts.
Fresh from their swag-heavy preview showing at NYCC, Chillingo brings He Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe to iOS platforms. Developed by GlitchSoft, He-Man’s latest foray into the world of gaming is far from perfect, but tons of fun and well worth the price of admission.
Capcom recently held back-to-back panels at New York Comic Con to promote their flashy upcoming titles to a packed crowd. Attendees were treated to exclusive new gameplay footage, announcements, and behind-the-scenes technical info on Lost Planet 3 and the controversially rebooted Devil May Cry.
Following Capcom’s panel highlighting the surprisingly impressive Lost Planet 3, the room quickly filled with gamers clamoring to get a glimpse of the much maligned re-imagining of Devil May Cry, now simply marketed as DmC. Similar to Bioware’s open panel discussions subsequent to Mass Effect 3’s launch though, the online fervor was nowhere to be found,…
While the bustling showfloor of New York Comic Con is currently home to a playable build of Hitman: Absolution, Square Enix treated us to an offsite showing where we were able to play through a sizable portion of the game at our own pace — and it rocked our socks.
Away from the insanity of the Javits Center show floor, we were able to get some quality time with a pre-beta build of the upcoming Tomb Raider game. From what we saw, fans of the previous entries in the series and action/adventure games in general will want to keep their eyes locked on this one.
The recent news that Rayman Legends, the successor to last year’s stellar Rayman Origins, has been delayed until 2013 is a major bummer. Playing a demo of the game on a Wii U console at NYCC has only made that news harder to bear, as my time with it left me wanting much, much more.
