Max Payne 3 Details Emerge, Sound Like They Have Potential

Posted on April 04, 2011

After opting to stay coy for nearly two years, Rockstar Games surprised us all last week by unveiling three new images from Max Payne 3. No, Rockstar wasn’t fooling us with an almost twisted April’s Fools’ Day prank as the images were legit and were a tease of an impending reveal.  Of course we didn’t have a clue as to when Rockstar was planning to fill us in on the long in development Max Payne 3, but thankfully Edge managed to get the details on the long awaited return of everyone’s favorite tortured police officer.

Johnny Cage Shows Why He’s So Awesome In This New Mortal Kombat Video

Posted on April 04, 2011

 

Fans of the Mortal Kombat franchise all know that when it comes to being totally cocky and too egotistical that no one trumps Johnny Cage.  The man that’s supposed to be a riff on the Hollywood action stars that we love has been a fan-favorite character since he first appeared in MK1, way back in 1992.  Since debuting as a somewhat obvious parody on Jean-Claude Van Damme, Johnny Cage has since blossomed to become a character whose one-liners and attitude is completely unrivaled by anything we’ve seen before, whether it’s a real person or a completely fictitious one.

Posted on March 30, 2011

 

Another creepy trailer has been released for the upcoming paranormal horror first-person shooter, F.E.A.R. 3 from Day 1 Studios.

The new trailer showcases the lovely family of Alma Wade and her two sons Point Man and Paxton Fettel and the horrific circumstances that binds them all. A rather spooky family ensemble tailor made to appear on an episode of the Jerry Springer Show.

F.E.A.R. 3 is shaping up quite nicely to give Dead Space 2 some serious competition for the scariest video game of 2011.

Shift 2: Unleashed review

Posted on March 29, 2011

I am in favour of the RPG-ification of all things. I want points for successfully waking up in the morning, points for getting my legs through the right holes in my trousers, points for not falling over and voiding my bowels on the way to work. Shift 2 has the right idea: it gives me points for everything.

I overtake another car and the invisible car god of the sky gives me 20 points. I stymie a rival’s progression through the pack by weaving my multi-thousand dollar machine in front of his, and he gifts me another ten. All points from my benevolent driving lord go toward Shift 2’s career mode, and fuel a healthy and compulsive unlock schedule that makes me want to swear undying fealty to my new car god and kill all unbelievers.

A second later I was rammed off the road.

Points spill forth from all Shift 2’s orifices. Winning races or getting the fastest lap on a time attack session will typically give the largest rewards, but they don’t satisfy quite like the mid-race prizes. On default settings, Shift 2’s tracks are lit up by a racing line of green chevrons: follow them perfectly and you’ll tot up XP. Each course has mini achievements – leading for a lap, or following the line through every corner – and the points-haul is chunky.

Connecting solidly with the racing line and sticking to it adds an extra frisson to an already tense game, but the wayward handling model makes the process more complicated than it needs to be. Shift 2’s default camera mode is in the racer’s helmet. Slightly Mad studios have artfully recreated the sense of climbing into a turbocharged tin can and getting knocked about so hard your vision swims, but in doing so, it feels like they’ve tied Shift 2’s cars too closely to your on-screen hand movements.

The in-helmet view makes for a juddery ride

Let’s take turning left as an example. On a Xbox 360 pad (and for the love of new magic sky god, do not attempt to play with a keyboard – controller or wheel only), pushing the stick slowly to the left has one of two outcomes: a yank on the wheel that realigns your car at least ten degrees, or nothing at all. As an experience, the helmet cam is breathtaking – being close to the tarmac with the noise and speed feels properly dangerous. But to win races, I had to switch to the behind-the-car camera, or suffer as my guesses about the way my car was facing were proved wrong. Mastering a race from further out, Shift 2’s all-or-nothing handling can be studied, judged, and reasoned with. Car type and quality make a huge difference, necessitating some minor grinding. I was having problems finishing on the podium in one of the game’s early C-class races, using a cheapo front-wheel drive Nissan. Much swearing later, I hocked it and used some extra cash to pick up a four-wheel drive Impreza, adding a few technical-sounding tweaks from the garage along the way. Popping back into the same race, I slipped my competitors on the first corner and giggled all the way to the top spot.

Shift 2’s sheer weight of stuff – from mud-ring circuits in a VW Golf to Bugatti duels at the Nurburgring – gives it a deep bag of appeal. There’s an array of fiddly details for car geeks to poke at, and a range of control-difficulty settings that allow you to tailor races to your ability. The only downside to such a complete package is that it demands so many hours of acclimatisation before the cars start to make sense

Using your 3DS to put boobs on everyone and everything: The professional photographer’s guide (Nintendo 3DS)

Posted on March 25, 2011

So, 3D on the 3DS then. It’s good. Not just in games though. Oh no, some of the very most fun stuff so far is to be found lurking amongst the plethora of in-built 3D toys, games and general tools of tomfoolery coded into the handheld’s dashboard. Nintendo really wants to show this tech off in the coolest, most imaginatively Nintendo-y ways possible.

We however, want to shoe it off in the most GamesRadar-y way possible. So we’re going to show you how to put boobs on anything you want. Anything. Actual 3D boobs. Ladies and gentlemen, the evolution of video game breastery has taken a quantum leap forward this day.

Duke Nukem Forever release date disparity demystified

Posted on March 24, 2011

The new Duke Nukem Forever release date raised a question around the PC Gamer US office: why is this game, which stars the quintessential American badass, is made by an American developer, and is published by an American company being released four days later in North America than internationally?

What gives? Don’t 2K and Gearbox know that Americans have grown accustomed to preferential treatment? Who are the conspirators behind this? We want names!

We asked 2K PR Manager Charlie Sinhaseni, and the answer is so simple that it’ll surprise you.

“We have a commitment to our fans to get the game out as early as possible, and every day counts. New games are available on Tuesday in North America, so we’re getting the game out as early as possible in this territory. The international markets do not adhere to this release timing, and it just happens that they will be able to release the game a few days before North America. We don’t want to hold it back, we want to get it into the hands of consumers as soon as possible,” says Sinhaseni.

So there you have it: it’s all the retail world’s fault. While it’s true that digital distribution knows no release schedule, big, powerful companies like Walmart and GameStop get their shipments of new games on Tuesdays, and don’t appreciate the online competition getting a head start. Publishers can ignore the wrath of the retailers at their own risk, of course, but in a climate where every game sale counts, it’s hard to blame them for going after those retail dollars.

We’ve got a date with Duke.
