By Chris Faylor, Jun 23, 2010 2:20pm PDT

As communications manager Kieran Brigden puts it, Shogun 2: Total War isn't just a much different game than developer Creative Assembly's recent Total War entries, it's also the game that the studio has been wanting to make for the past ten years.

Time Crisis: Razing Storm E3 2010 Preview

By Raymond Padilla, Jun 23, 2010 7:00am PDT

Quick Take: This Time Crisis game eschews precision shooting for the joy of blowing stuff up. Using PlayStation Move, this game is all about gunning down enemies and destroying as much of the environment as possible.

Mario Sports Mix E3 2010 Preview

By Raymond Padilla, Jun 23, 2010 5:40am PDT

Quick Take: Mario and pals return for more athletic endeavors, Bo Jackson style! Instead of a single sport it's arcade basketball, volleyball, hockey, and dodgeball. The gameplay shown at E3 2010 was perfect for parties, but it remains to

By Chris Faylor, Jun 22, 2010 4:00pm PDT

"[The original Portal] wasn't inherently about portals or anything else, it was about people feeling like this was a different kind of game that they had to think about," Valve's Erik Johnson reveals. "So, the challenge for us [with Portal 2] was to re-su

Supremacy MMA E3 2010 Preview

By Raymond Padilla, Jun 22, 2010 1:40pm PDT

Quick Take: Eschewing realism for arcade gameplay and an over-the-top style, this fighting game reminded me of mixed martial arts with some Mortal Kombat and Blitz: The League thrown in. It's still in the early stages, but it has potentia

XCOM E3 2010 Preview

By Garnett Lee, Jun 22, 2010 12:20pm PDT

QUICKTAKE: The 50's "dawn of the atomic age" era provides a great atmosphere for an alien-hunt shooter whether you know the original or not. And for those who do, while it's not a strategy game, there are ample nods to the X-Com spirit
