Gears of War 3 Multiplayer Beta Postmortem

Friday, May 27, 2011 2 Comments

With the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta closed for nearly two weeks, I’ve had some time to sit and think about my experiences. Yes, I could have done this sooner, but time is needed to fully process… alright! I’m lazy! Here are my thoughts. The gameplay was rock solid, with few initial connection issues […]

Rod Fergusson, the game’s executive producer (he’s also been with the franchise from the start), was also […]

Michael Jackson: The Experience a Fun Surprise

Friday, March 18, 2011 2 Comments

I don’t love Michael Jackson. I like his music, but I don’t love it by any means. And the thought of a video game being announced not long after his death made me cringe a little. It felt opportunistic and sleazy and, to some degree, it still does. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be […]

I do still own every game in the series and just figured I’d let you guys in on the newest revelations regarding the next instalment, Metal Gear Solid Rising. If you haven’t heard anything about it yet, I’ll try and let you […]

Halo: Reach Drops Jaws with Feature Overload at X’10

Friday, August 27, 2010 2 Comments

With its brand new campaign, weapons, loadouts, expansive competitive and cooperative multiplayer features, a new version of the Forge map editor, ridiculous customization options, gameplay in outer space and more, Halo: Reach is an absolutely gargantuan title. I had the chance to speak with Bungie Studios’ Joe Tung, Reach‘s executive producer, about all of the […]

Fable 3 tickles, titillates at X’10

Thursday, August 26, 2010 1 Comment

I really adored Fable 2. The combat was very satisfying, it had some nice comedy bits, and it was just an all around pleasurable experience. In fact, just writing about it is making me want to go back and play through it again. Before I do that though, let me tell you about the third […]

Rock Band 3 Impresses, Teases at Microsoft’s X’10 Holiday Preview Event in Toronto

Thursday, August 26, 2010 No Comments

There was plenty to see and play at Microsoft’s X’10 holiday preview event in Toronto last week, but the game I was most looking forward to playing was, you guessed it, Rock Band 3. The chance to try out the game’s new features and controllers was too good to pass up, so after getting the […]

It has been three years since the release of the original BioShock for the Xbox 360 and, after a sequel that was considered a disappointment by some purists (not Nathan), Irrational Games has announced a return to the helm of their most popular franchise with BioShock: Infinite. The newest installment in the series looks to […]
