The PlayStation brand was known to be a haven for many RPG fans, especially with its former exclusivity of popular IPs like Final Fantasy. Unfortunately, the cliché stories, long cutscenes, and repetitive gameplay have since made Japanese RPGs almost unplayable this generation, and they’ve become more scarce as a result. But there’s always a diamond [...]
The Tomb Raider franchise is easily one of the most successful franchises in video game history. Despite hitting some low points along the way (Angel of Darkness, per most), the series has remained primarily solid in its offerings. And with that, 2013 will see a reboot of the series, with Lara Croft returning as a [...]
At Microsoft’s booth on Comic Con’s exhibition hall floor, we got an early look at Halo 4’s multiplayer. Part of a 12-man, two-team group, the demo allowed a solid look at some of the features available in a revised Slayer in War Games mode.

Obviously, the mode worked well enough in Gears 2 that Epic Games didn’t need any massive retooling for the third installment. A few rounds were available to play, so [...]
The title of Most Surprising Demo at Comic Con likely has to go to Mass Effect 3. A video would have been expected. But a hands-on demo? It’s a sign of how important games are becoming at Comic Con. This was the same demo shown at E3, but Comic Con provided its public hands-on debut.
With an incredible amount of Batman fans eagerly awaiting the 2012 release of The Dark Knight Rises, they’ll be easily taken care of with the upcoming Batman: Arkham City. Picking up where its predecessor Batman: Arkham Asylum left off, Arkham City pits the Bat up against an entire city overrun by psychotic thugs.
