After the gaming blizzard that was October and November, publishers are winding down the year with only a handful of releases in December. Still, a month that features Far Cry 3 and Hawken can't be completely forgettable, can it?
Isaac Clarke, Raiden, Rayman, and The Prophet are just a few stars lining up for February's new release schedule. See why consoles, handhelds, and PCs will be feeling the love this month in our jam-packed peak at the games of February 2013...
December may offer the true
climax of the holiday season, but in terms of new game releases, it's very much
the calm after the storm. Most of the giant blockbusters of the season made
their way out between September and November, but the final month of 2011 isn't
barren by any means: big releases like Mario Kart 7 and Star Wars: The Old
Republic lead the pack, while system-specific versions of some notable recent
titles also find their way to store shelves. But if you read this over and
don't see anything on the horizon that works you into a tizzy, surely November's overstuffed
lineup holds a few leftover options to consider...
Who doesn't love zombies? Well, apart from Jill Valentine, communists and possibly the Wolfman. It's also a well known science type fact that the living dead automatically make any game they appear in amazing. And who are we to dispute scienticians? That's why we've taken some games we'd love to see stuffed full of the undead and, thanks to Photoshop, made our zombie dreams so.
Champions are made of more than mutant powers and godly origins. Join as we pay tribute to the average men and women who rose above great odds in our countdown of gaming's top everyman heroes...
How many lives has your favorite hero saved? Chances are, it's probably less than those on this list. See which gaming protagonist is a savior savant after the jump...
Bored of having eyeballs? Take a look through these overly lit game stills and you'll never have to see again!
“Is that your profession or pleasure?” Well, when it comes to jobs in games, it’s usually both. Y’see, your average gaming hero’s nine-to-five is a never-ending stream of employed excitement. Acrobatic plumbers who frolic in magical fantasy kingdoms. Archaeologists with pornstar bodies who can dual wield pistols like everyone’s favourite slaphead assassin. And suspiciously buff scientists who routinely save the human race with nothing but a crowbar. They all enjoy incredible careers we mere mortals could only dream of. Of course, if their jobs were a little more true to life, Mario would probably do himself in when he faced his first backed-up toilet…
whatever reason, you don’t see a lot of video game characters taking time out
from shooting dogs or whatever to watch TV. We’re guessing it has something to
do with that thing we just said sounding insanely boring, but even so, games that let us watch
the characters watching TV have become gradually more common. Here are our favorites...
The tragic flip-side of increasingly ambitious video game narrative is when for whatever reason (more often than not an MIA sequel) an otherwise brilliant and rewarding story goes unfinished. So we've decided to help. We've decided to get you some closure by working out how nine of these unfortunately in-limbo tales should have ended. We've even done pictures to help you imagine.
