Grand Theft Auto V trailer

5 Nov


Yeah, baby. GTA is back. This is the latest game on my Can’t-Wait-To-Play-It List.

Could this be the most amazing Star Wars game ever?

12 Jul

Sadly it’s not commercially available … yet. The game was designed by Arthur Nishimoto, a student at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This should be a wake up call for the folks at LucasArts whose game efforts in recent years have been less than memorable.

Reported by Kotaku.

New Batman: Arkham City trailer!

16 Mar

The trailer for the sequel to my favorite super-hero game of all time, Batman: Arkham Asylum, is out! This time the action leaves the confines of Arkham Island and now plays out in a city-sized map. At least, that’s what the folks behind Batman: Arkham City promise!

Not only was Arkham Asylum one of the best stealth / action games of all time, it was one of the best Batman incarnations of any medium. This Batman may be considered an extension of the one we saw in Batman The Animated Series and Justice League cartoons, complete with voice talents of Kevin Conroy as the Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker.

Can’t wait to get my hands on this sequel!

Batman: Arkham City will be released on 18 October 2011.

20 Aug

Check it out, kids. Those cats over at have released the latest version of their Star Wars-themed mod for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The Beta 0.8 version of ‘Star Wars Mod: Galactic Warfare’ is available for download here.

Can’t wait to dig up my copy of COD 4 and reinstall it. Here’s a little taste of the action.

New Trailer from DC Universe Online

18 Aug

The folks at DC Universe online unveiled today its latest trailer for DC Universe Online. Unlike the six-minute trailer shown at Comic Con 2010, which was a fully rendered cinematic, this latest trailer appears to consist entirely of in-game footage. And it looks great!

City of Heroes: Going Rogue goes live

17 Aug

Great assets are what keeps COH players loyal.

Massively multiplayer online role-playing game City of Heroes unveils today what it heralds as its most ambitious expansion to date: Going Rogue. While I haven’t had a chance to dive into it yet, Going Rogue is an example of why I’ve remained a fan since 2004.

City of Heroes may have never had the following anywhere near the size of World of Warcraft but that’s exactly what I love about it. Unlike most fantasy-based MMOs out there – and there are a ton of them – in COH I no longer get the feeling that my character is running alongside some snot-nosed, 13-year old brat. The choice of costumes, the banter and cultural references reassure me that I’m playing with folks closer to my age group: 30s & 40s. And people who are – naturally – partial to comic books. But most of all, the COH team has succeeded where most games have failed: keeping the content fresh and constantly improving on what’s already an excellent product.

Here’s a little preview. More ongoing Rogue once I’ve had more time to play.
