The Amazing Spider-Man preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 05, 2012 12:00pm PDT

It's unfortunate that The Amazing Spider-Man is titled as such, because it's inevitable that not-so-clever journalists like myself will go for the obvious headline: "The Bot-So-Amazing Spider-Man."


"That title goes all the way back to 1963 and Mr. Stan Lee. (The movie should have been ..."

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate announced, is 2D/3D hybrid for 3DS

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 05, 2012 12:00pm PDT

Mirror of Fate is an interesting marriage of Lords of Shadow and the classic 2D Metroidvania games. The game is played on a 2D plane, but features the combat of its 3D console counterparts.


"Uh, spoilers, dude. And it's also not actually new to make them related, it was heavily ..."

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 05, 2012 12:00pm PDT

I cut clean through the top half of a man's head. It was a genuinely uncomfortable sight--and only the beginning of the hyper-violence featured in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.


"Agree, I am dying to play it, been watching its progress for a long time."

DmC: Devil May Cry preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 05, 2012 12:00pm PDT

Yes, he's younger and has black hair. But having played the new DmC, it's hard to think of it as a reboot. It plays so much like the previous games, that it might as well have been called Devil May Cry 5.


"Actually having seen that trailer i'm more interested in this now, wasn't too impressed with the ..."

Sleeping Dogs preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 05, 2012 9:00am PDT

A Square Enix exec claimed that former publisher Activision was "crazy" for dropping the title, and after some time with it, I'd agree.


"Hell, the Yakuza games have a loyal, if small, following. This would probably have a bit wider ..."

Quantum Conundrum preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 05, 2012 9:00am PDT

The similarities between Portal and Quantum Conundrum are almost too numerous to write up. But that's not really a bad thing, right?


LittleBigPlanet Vita preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 04, 2012 8:00pm PDT

Yes, LittleBigPlanet for Vita is "just LittleBigPlanet for Vita." But it is also much more than that, thanks to powerful game creation tools aimed at touch screen gameplay.


Sports Champions 2 preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 04, 2012 8:00pm PDT

Sports Champions 2 features far more iconic sports, but they aren't quite as good at showing off Move's accuracy.


Far Cry 3 preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 04, 2012 4:00pm PDT

The quintessential elements of Far Cry seem to be intact, which should sate fans of the original games. However, what makes Far Cry 3 such an interesting experience is what it tries to do new.


"Watch Dogs demo was pretty cool, i'll admit.. gave you a sense of the gameplay and it seems that ..."

Connor is easily the deadliest assassin Ubisoft has created.


Gameglobe: A free-to-play browser-based UGC engine for games

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 04, 2012 8:00am PDT

The crown jewel of Square Enix's upcoming lineup is a game that no one is talking about: Gameglobe. It's a free-to-play browser-based game that takes user-generated content to a whole new level.


"It requires installing a native plugin, but it's still impressive. I wish the video would show ..."

Rock Band Blitz is not only a great value for fans that have amassed a significant Rock Band library, it's a fun return to Harmonix's roots.


"Online while-playing score tracking ala Trials is going to be AWESOME."

ShootMania Storm preview

By Andrew Yoon, May 23, 2012 12:01am PDT

ShootMania is the FPS expansion of the ManiaPlanet universe, letting players play, create, and share their own maps and game types. While playing, I couldn't help but think back to the days of Unreal Tournament.


"Yeah I worded that badly. I meant stuff more like Quake and UT. Love Tribes: Ascend though"

Company of Heroes 2 preview

By Andrew Yoon, May 22, 2012 9:00am PDT

With such a storied legacy, how can Relic possibly build upon Company of Heroes? By taking the war to the Eastern Front, of course.


"If you are going to call the German soldier a Nazi, you should also call the Soviets Bolsheviks."
