Anyone who’s played just about any Splinter Cell besides Conviction will instantly recognize the Spies vs Mercs mode and in fact the disappointment by Splinter Cell fans by it’s […]

The multiplayer beta of Divinity: Dragon Commander is underway, and I had the chance to preview it. Dragon Commander is an RTS/Action game hybrid made by Larian Studios for the PC. It promises to make for interesting blend of strategic and Attack gameplay and perhaps it will make good on that promise.

We couldn’t resist get a demo of one of most unique games out there, Scribblenauts! With Scribblenauts Unlimited for the Wii U, it really is unlimited because there is an object editor which lets you pretty much make almost anything and use it in the game. We get a hands on demo of the object […]

Sony Online Entertainment had a great showing at PAX Prime 2012 for their upcoming massively multiplayer first-person shooter release, Planetside 2. The sequel to the original Planetside game is picking up where the first one left off, but there are some additions and changes that make the second game worth noting, even beyond the new […]

PAX Prime 2012 allowed me a sizable sneak peek at the sequel to the highly regarded tactical real-time strategy game Company of Heroes. Hailed as the highest rated strategy game of all time, Company of Heroes set a high standard for anything that followed it, including a sequel of the same title. THQ owned developer […]
