by Mike Martinon 10/30/2013
Beyond: Two Souls is like playing on a seesaw. When it’s up, you’re up. When it’s down, you’re down. At its peak, Beyond: TS has some of the most realistic 3D character modeling and animation ever and surprisingly enjoyable, unique movement based controls. At its lowest, it takes a scattershot approach to telling a story […]

Killer Is Dead Slashes Towards Retail

by Mike Martinon 08/28/2013
Killer Is Dead launched at retailers today for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game looks equally as bizarre as its premise. Players control contract killer Mondo Zappa who favors a sword in one hand and a multi-use bionic arm to slay nefarious enemies in a cel-shaded, ultra-violent, surrealistic romp through a cyberpunk world. Look for our review shortly. PSN and Xbox 360 Games on Demand versions will launch on Sept 13.

E3 2013 Preview: What to Expect from Sony

by Mike Martinon 06/09/2013
Sony had better send Microsoft a thank you card for setting E3 up perfectly for the PlayStation 4. They couldn’t ask for better circumstances. The PS4 will make its official debut and I’m betting will have a fantastic showing of games. While Sony sat back and watched Microsoft take its lumps over the last couple […]

Blizzard Entertainment announced on that Diablo III will indeed be hitting the current generation consoles, PS3 and Xbox 360, on September 3.
