Dead Space 3 trailer yells Kinect commands

By Alice O'Connor, Jan 07, 2013 8:15am PST

Sure, you could press A to revive your pal in Dead Space 3's co-op mode, but wouldn't it be quicker and easier to say "Revive partner!" to your Kinect? No, of course not. Still, Visceral's scary shooter supports just that, as a new video shows off. Gasp, as the possibility o...

By Alice O'Connor, Dec 27, 2012 6:00am PST

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel preview: not so gritty

By Kat Bailey, Dec 07, 2012 1:00pm PST

It seems as if Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel will be far from the worst shooter ever released. Like its predecessors though, this "gritty" shooter is apt to be quickly buried by the competition when it arrives in March.
