Remember the goofy old days when virtual reality was the
future and everyone would soon be wearing goofy visors to control their
computers? Why do you think that never panned out? It’s possible that the
technology was ahead of its time – the most advanced graphics back then were
untextured polygons running at fifteen frames per second. It didn’t exactly
make you feel like you were inside some virtual world. The other problem was
that the equipment was way, way too bulky to be practical for home use. Sony
came by our offices the other day to show us something...
From the silly to the sexy we stalked the show floor to give you hundreds of photos of cosplayers from PAX this year...
Capcom unexpectedly cancelled Mega Man Legends 3 last month, fans flooded the
internet with questions. But here’s the most important, and one we can easily
answer for you: What was the game
Power’s Chris Hoffman happens to be the only journalist to ever play Mega Man
Legends 3 before its cancellation, and he also happens to work right down the

Legends 3 in our comment section and Chris will answer them…
Deus Ex: Human Revolution has ended Zumba Fitness' insanely long stay at
the top of the UK all-formats chart. One week before Zumba would have
equaled the record held by FIFA: Road to the World Cup from 1998 as the
most consecutive weeks atop the UK charts. But that's not the only
statistic of note. We know the main reason you get up every morning is in the hope some
statistics of note come along, so you're going to love this.
played any Spider-Man games or watched any Spider-Man TV shows, then you’ve
already heard voice actor Josh Keaton deliver Peter Parker’s signature witty
banter. He’s voiced the wall-crawler in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Spider-Man:
Shattered Dimensions, and the Marvel Super Hero Squad games, and he’s returning
to voice the Amazing Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Edge of Time. In this trailer
for the game, Keaton talks up the character, and explains why the stakes are so
much higher this time around. He also says “You’re also going to have to
compete against time… itself,” with a straight face, proving why none of us
could ever be voice actors...
has released this short clip of Star Fox 64 3D to remind you that the game's
not all talking animals exchanging action-movie pleasantries in spaceships. Oh
no, there's also talking animals trading warm-hearted banter in tanks, and
talking animals in submarines feebly making excuses for the dire
underperformance of said submarines (on the plus side, keep shooting, because
you've got lots of torpedoes). But hey, don't those landmaster levels look
better than ever? Not a huge orange beach-ball explosion in sight...
The 3DS price-drop
was disheartening for many early adopters, though rumors are it’s not going to
be the last blow that Nintendo “Ambassadors” will be dealt. Nintendo is supposedly
holding a pre-Tokyo Game Show event for the 3DS on September 13 - a rumor that
has already lead to a small bump in the company’s stock according toBloomberg Japan. While Nintendo may be
using this time to talk about improved sales, tease upcoming games, or announce
release dates, word on the street is that they’ll be taking the stage to
announce a full-blown redesign of the 3DS.
This 3DS reboot rumor comes from French site 01Net, which cites a source from within
Nintendo claiming that the 3DS will re-launch in 2012, sporting a remodeled
body and a second circle pad. Nintendo is apparently disappointed that it
didn’t originally include a second circle pad with the 3DS, and hopes to not
only add one in this new iteration, but to create a detachable version for the
current 3DS that will retail for around $10...
According to Raptr, only 10 percent of players actually finished the last
mission in Red Dead Redemption. This is why we can’t have nice things
We like games – and since you’re reading this site, it seems safe to assume
that you like games, too. But according to a recent CNN report, most players
don’t finish the games they start…
The Videogame History Museum doesn't exist. But it could exist if the project gets enough help during the last few days of fundraising. The organizers of the Classic Gaming Expo, Joe Santulli, Sean Kelly, and John Hardie, hope to reach their fundraising goal of $30,000 in the next nine days. If they can do it, they've pledged to create a permanent home for their collection of over 30,000 objects of gaming antiquity in Silicon Valley and put together a mobile unit that they'll send to as many gaming trade shows as possible. They were one of our favorite parts of this year's E3, but just getting the small subset of the full collection took the three of them over two months of preparation. With a mobile unit they'd be much more... err, mobile...
