Heavy Rain: Director’s Cut Releases WHEN??

Quantic Dream’s ineptitude toward successful promotion apparently equals what visionary developers the team has proven to be. So suppose you released a game. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, it was IGN’s 2010 PS3 Game Of The Year, Heavy Rain. Suppose you packed a bargain-priced “Director’s Cut” edition with fascinating extras, including the bonus […]

A Batman Game Gets A “Sensual” Voice Option? Ooooh, my . . .

The upcoming Gotham City Imposters will have players running about Gotham and taking down evil-doers and goody-goody vigilantes with the likes of assault rifles, shotguns, rocket-launchers and other gadgets, all wielded by what sounds like the pudgy, fail-bomb wannabe Dark Knights whose bad-ass hockey pad outfits the real Caped Crusader PWNS early in “The Dark Knight.” That, or an apparent member of The Joker’s crew……….

Original “Crysis” To Hit PS3, Xbox 360 In Oct. At Bargain Price

Every so often – not even often, but just every so often – I pray my prayers, and something gets through. I can guarantee that just this one time, it wasn’t the 15 minutes of sprint intervals that had my heart hitting 180 BPM on the treadmill. It was reading via the @totalgaming Twitter account […]

“Dead Island” DLC On The Way ALREADY?

Well, how nice. Deep Silver isn’t wasting time pumping out some Dead Island DLC. You’ll excuse me if that actually hacks me off a little bit.

The anticipated undead-slaying, action-adventure/RPG mash-up just hit shelves Tuesday – and many are probably only barely shin-deep in the game by now – but publisher Deep Silver has already announced that players won’t be waiting much more than a few weeks before the game’s first new maps become available…….

‘Captain America: Super Soldier’ Makes Fine Popcorn Gaming

“Sega bounced back from owing trusting gamers a 12-hours-of-our-lives-back apology for Thor’s inept design by unleashing Captain America: Super Soldier and proving that they do actually remember what makes a beat-’em-up action title enjoyable.”

Demo Impressions: “Catherine”

Judging Atlus Persona Team’s Catherine by mainstream American gaming expectations and norms would be about as futile as assessing a samurai based upon the 82nd Airborne’s standards and conventions. Putting subjective standards of quality aside, they’re just two completely different animals. The character-driven anime horror puzzler-platformer hits American shelves July 26 already receiving gaming press […]

Artful “LIMBO” Is A Must Buy [Review]

LIMBO is but a single-serving puzzler experience, but it’s an austere, sometimes taxing one-and-done experience that’s well worth having. It isn’t every day that a game with virtually no intrinsic replay value that won’t take most much more than a day to complete is a highly recommended “buy.”
