Rochard Hands-On Preview

At last week's Game Developers Conference, I got a chance to get a first-look and some hands-on playtime with Rochard, Recoil Games' upcoming title for the PlayStation Network. In one of the conference suites at San Francisco's W Hotel, I was greeted by Rochard's Creative Director, Burt Kane, who got me up to speed while I played through a few brief sections that showed off an array of Rochard's different gameplay elements.

After watching Rochard's debut trailer (shown below), Kane provided me with a brief overview of what players can expect from the story: Read more »

Hands-on Preview: Breach

On Monday, Atomic Games announced Breach with little to no detail. Today, they stopped holding back. The game uses technology developed for Six Days in Fallujah to offer fully-destructible buildings and cover.

The game is playable at PAX East 2010, but I had a chance to play a build of the game on the Xbox 360 earlier this week and I came away impressed. The game is still a little rough around the edges, lacking the polish of a final version, but I had a really great time playing against Atomic's QA team. Read more »
