Bizarre Creations releases retrospective video as its doors close forever. Noooooo! (Blur)

Posted on February 20, 2011

Metropolis Street Racer. F1 ’97. Project Gotham Racing 4. Freakin’ Geometry Wars. Do none of these names matter any more? Apparantly not, as today, Activision closes the doors of Bizarre Creations, breaking the hearts of thousands of gamers across the world. And, in case you avoided such pulmonary discomfort, the team has signed off with a farewell slow motion montage. With piano. Sniff.

iPhone review of the day: Legendary Wars – How do you improve Plants vs Zombies? Unicorns (Legendary Wars)

Posted on February 18, 2011

The modus operandi of Legendary Wars isn’t much different than that of hundreds of other castle vs. castle or tower defense games available in the App Store. Your castle is on one end of the side-scrolling battlefield, the enemy’s stronghold is on the other. You mine gems and then use the gems to create an army to defend your turf and raze the other guy’s to the ground. But Plants vs Zombies proved that adorable art and music combined with near-perfect gameplay can transcend this simple concept. And Legendary Wars was taking notes while reading Tolkien in the Ren Faire beer garden…

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – what we want to see (Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception)

Posted on February 16, 2011

The only people you ever hear complaining about Uncharted are those who don’t own a PS3. In other words, it’s hard to actually play a Nathan Drake adventure and not fall in immediate love with every breath-taking, death-defying, wise-cracking moment. Can the franchise really be improved, then, or is “more of the same” more than enough in this case?

Well, close to perfection is still just that – “close.” Here are 13 things that Uncharted 3 needs if developer Naughty Dog hopes to raise the stratospheric bar set by Uncharted 2…

Duke Nukem Forever: 4 big reasons it’s 100% old-school authentic (while also 100% fresh) (Duke Nukem Forever)

Posted on February 15, 2011

Before my most recent session with Duke Nukem Forever, I had plenty of questions. Even having previously played through the PAX demo, I had questions. Superficially, I knew this game was Duke Nukem. It had balls-out action. It had one-liners. It had all the iconic weaponry. But as a fan of Duke Nukem 3D since its original 1996 release, I needed to know more.

How Duke Nukem would the full game feel? And how Duke Nukem could it get away with feeling, after thirteen years and countless developments in the FPS genre? Would Duke Nukem Forever be a legitimate and worthwhile sequel to Duke 3D, or just another FPS with the name tacked on? Having fine-toothed the game’s opening couple of hours with my fanboy comb, I now feel like it’s the former, 100%. Here’s what you need to know.

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (Review)

Posted on February 15, 2011

Marvel vs Capcom 3 is a celebration of everything that makes videogames great. It’s a celebration of Capcom’s heritage. Of comic books and super heroes. Of laser beams, celestial brush strokes and grenade launchers. A celebration of button mashing and obscene complexity of control. Of combos, juggling and finishing moves. But most of all, it’s a celebration of everything that makes the very word ‘videogame’ excite our minds. And it’s time you joined the party.

Cave Story remake announced for 3DS (Cave Story 3D)

Posted on February 12, 2011

It’s official: Cave Story, the 2D indie darling that started life as a free PC game in 2004, is headed to the 3DS. And not as a downloadable, depth-of-field-enabled version of itself, either – Cave Story 3D, announced today by publisher NIS America, will be a full-fledged remake of the original, with new content, character designs and fully 3D visuals. To get the full story, GR editors Mikel Reparaz and Brett Elston were privileged to sit down with Cave Story’s creator, Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya (who developed the original by himself, and whose website has lots of cool, free stuff), and its producer/music director Tyrone Rodriguez, to talk about Cave Story, the 3DS and what exactly drives a man to spend five years creating a massive, retro-styled adventure…

Is Duke Nukem’s Titty City the coolest real strip club in history? (Clue: Yes, yes it is) (Duke Nukem Forever)

Posted on February 11, 2011

So as you’ll know by now (particularly if you follow us on Twitter), myself and Tyler Nagata have just returned from a bout of good-natured debauchery in Las Vegas. The reason for this? Duke Nukem Forever. We both got to play the opening couple of hours (Tyler’s preview is here, and my take is coming soon) and were mighty impressed overall. The standout element of the trip though? The venue.

A real Vegas strip club, converted in meticulous detail into Titty City, Duke’s own fictional in-game boob bar. Throughout the whole event (and the late-night after-party) we were constantly staggered by the attention and care 2K had ploughed into this place. Themed venues are pretty common at preview events, but this was smething more. This was like stepping into the game. Thus, I thought it was worth a gallery feature all to itself. And thus, over the jump you’ll find 20 photos taken in and around my new favourite place ever. And a video of the dancing girls. Because well, you know, dancing girls…

New Halo: Reach map pack is apparently called "Defiant". Step right up for all the blurry screens (Halo: Reach)

Posted on February 10, 2011

One of the many winning qualities of the internet is its ability to host high-res images that make your pupils go positively wobbly at the knees (well, it that wasn’t anatomically impossible). Unfortunately, you won’t be getting a single image with a respectable resolution here. Instead, what we can give you is brand new, leaked screens, which have apparently been taken from Halo: Reach’s latest map pack, Defiant.

If video game jobs were true to life (Tomb Raider (2011))

Posted on February 09, 2011

“Is that your profession or pleasure?” Well, when it comes to jobs in games, it’s usually both. Y’see, your average gaming hero’s nine-to-five is a never-ending stream of employed excitement. Acrobatic plumbers who frolic in magical fantasy kingdoms. Archaeologists with pornstar bodies who can dual wield pistols like everyone’s favourite slaphead assassin. And suspiciously buff scientists who routinely save the human race with nothing but a crowbar. They all enjoy incredible careers we mere mortals could only dream of. Of course, if their jobs were a little more true to life, Mario would probably do himself in when he faced his first backed-up toilet…

New Batman: Arkham City screens will improve your day 100% (after breaking its spine from the shadows) (Batman: Arkham City)

Posted on February 02, 2011

Don’t worry, it happens to us all. You’ve made it halfway through the week, surviving the attritional slog of Monday and bravely pushing through to the relative levitity of Tuesday, but now you’ve realised that it’s Wednesday, the furthest possible point from any weekend, and you can barely bring yourself to think, such is the pain that will be inflicted if you do.

You’re probably reading this from under a duvet, and you’re very probably thinking that the only thing that could possibly give you reason to go on with the rest of this accursed day would be a few new Batman: Arkham City screenshots, showing Batman doing all kinds of cool Batman things in some beautifully grimy environments. Well fear not! Such things have arrived.

Batman. What a goddamn hero.

Fed up with your pathetic human DNA? Albert Wesker makes a convincing argument for injecting Uroboros (Resident Evil 5)

Imagine that product being called ‘Old Uroboros’ and being endorsed by Resident Evil’s metrosexual bad guy Albert Wesker. Now imagine if the TV commercial for ‘Old Uroboros’ was like this…
