E3 2008

  • Video: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II could be the coolest RTS game

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=36578 I’m not big into RTS or MMOs because I think they’re a waste of time. Nicholas and VV used to hound me about joining WoW, but I refused every single time. AT E3, however, Relic/THQ opened up my eyes to something new and exciting, Dawn of War II. I was sort of tricked into thinking that it wasn’t an RTS because it… Read More

  • E3 2008: Borderlands trailer

    [blip.tv http://blip.tv/play/ih_C8VOJ5FQ%5D I may have been a little harsh on the Borderlands demo I was given at E3, but what do you expect when they show you Bioshock before hand? Anyway, here’s the trailer and it’s well put together, but most trailers are. We’ll be on the look out for gameplay footage and you can be the judge. Read More

  • Duke Nukem Trilogy trailer

    If you’ve been paying attention to our E3 coverage you’ll have noticed that most of the trailers we posted show actual in-game scenes along with perhaps something more compelling than still images of men in gas masks and Duke Nukem’s animated box art. If you’ve been following the Duke Nukem saga you’ll remember that the original game came out eleven years ago and… Read More

  • E3 2008: Mega Man 9 trailer – yes, it's awesome

    [blip.tv http://blip.tv/play/ih_C7WuJ5FQ%5D Oh yeah, baby. I’m going to beat this mother in one sitting no matter what. I’m really glad they went back to about the Mega Man 2 era in terms of skills and enemies since that’s the era I rock. I’m going to play some Mega Man tonight with “Eye of the Tiger” on in the background to get ready for this. Read More

    [blip.tv http://blip.tv/play/ih_C61uJ5FQ%5D Here’s the quick rundown on this 20+ minute video. Rock Band guitars and drums will be compatible with GH:WT. Brand new guitar with a dedicated Star Power button. Longer strum bar. Slider bar on the neck that’s touch sensitive: tap strum and a wah-wah effect. Non-Guitar Hero guitars can be played up on the frets without actually strumming. Read More

  • Why Bungie got left out in the rain at E3

    We were as pumped as everyone else to see what was going on with Bungie, and their big countdown suggested it was both big and imminent. So we were just as disappointed when they were a no-show altogether. What’s up with that? Bungie posted yesterday: “For the last several months, we’ve been building toward a reveal of something exciting that Bungie is working on,”… Read More

  • E3 2008: Call of Duty: World at War detailed by Activision

    [blip.tv http://blip.tv/play/ih_C6RmJ5FQ%5D Activision chose not to participate in E3, but they still made their presence felt in LA by holding their own press conference off site. They covered a handful of titles that included Guitar Hero: World Tour (details on this coming later today), Quantum of Solace, Spider Man: Web of Shadows, Wolfenstein and Marvel Ultimate Alliance II: Fusion.

  • E3 2008: Red Faction is back, and it's fun as hell

    Do you like to blow things up? Do you like to watch buildings come down? Then you probably bought into the hype of Red Faction 1 and 2, both of which promised a lot of that, and delivered, well, not as much as we’d have liked. Fortunately, Volition has been spending the last four years making the game that should have been made back in 2001. More screens and impressions inside. Read More

  • Sega E3 08: Alpha Protocol, Sonic Unleashed

    I’m not sure what it is about E3, but I’m slowly getting the itch to play me some RPGs and RTSs, but more on the latter later. Let’s rap about the former and first up is Obsidian’s (They created Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic II The Sith Lords and Neverwinter Nights 2) Alpha Protocol, which is an RPG with a fair amount of action gameplay thrown in to keep… Read More

  • Exclusive: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for iPhone

    [blip.tv http://blip.tv/play/ih_CzAGJ5FQ%5D As far as we know and to THQ Wireless’ knowledge we’re the first with any sort of footage for the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and here it is for all of you readers. It’s a very cool game and an ingenious way of using the touchscreen. The accelerometer is only used to switch gameplay from landscape to portrait… Read More

  • Video: Hands-on with Soul Caliber 4, check out Darth Vader and Yoda

    [blip.tv http://blip.tv/play/ih_Cv2KJ5FQ%5D Hey folks. I know some of you have been looking forward to SC4, so here’s a rather lengthy video for you to watch when you have some time. I tried to get the Namco folks to show me everything possible, but they were being a bit sheepish about it, so I got what I could. Also, there’s gameplay footage of the Apprentice from the upcoming… Read More

  • E3 2008: Ubisoft gives us the business

    Ubisoft has got a hell of a lineup coming. And for once I am convinced of the necessity of having a headset to get the best out of a game — and believe me, with EndWar it’s a good thing. I also got to see the new Prince of Persia in action, and Far Cry 2 was in effect as well. Click below for shots and impressions. Read More

  • Hands-on with Nyko's goodies and booth babes!

    We already posted about Nyko’s newest intercoolers for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and they’re pretty dope looking, so I just wanted to get some hands-on photos for you guys. The PS3 media hub that was announced the other week is clean, simple and sits flush with the system. You wouldn’t ever know it was an add-on attachment. Nyko makes great accessories that are economical and… Read More

  • E3 2008: Project Origin, Left 4 Dead, and more

    I’m checking in from E3 and it’s been, well, a stressful morning. I’d like to say for the record that Peter can’t drive, and that rental cars should come with compasses standard. But more pressing is the gaming news going on here — you saw our coverage of the big Nintendo event this morning, which was sweet, and now we’re cruising around the (surprisingly… Read More
