There's been a lot of activity on the point-and-click front, thanks to all the Kickstart campaigns that have been launched recently. The so-called "Golden Age" of adventure games may have passed, but could there be a resurgence?
If you're a video game publisher desperate to connect with the 'youth' audience, then only one genre of music exists. The bassy wub-wub-wubs of dubstep are not only the only type of music anyone under 30 listens to, but they're the music that everyone under 30 listens to. All day. All the time. Even asleep.
So I've taken this most prevalent current gaming fad to its logical conclusion. Behold, gaming once dubstep has completely taken over everything. It might make your brain go a bit funny, but just imagine what happened to me while I was making it.
Mass Effect 3. Need we say more? Well, with a strong month ahead - including new entries in franchises like Street Fighter, Resident Evil and Ninja Gaiden - you may find yourself tempted by more than just Commander Shepard’s final fight to save the galaxy. A look at all 40 of March’s biggest game releases…
Every week GamesRadar receives more game trailers than the internet can be expected to hold, so in those seven days some people might tragically miss a few of these new videos. That's why we've collected them into one new video, remixed for your pleasure...
Our sixth annual celebration of all things amazing in gaming in 2011 continues - in fact, it's only just starting! Now that the feel-good Special Awards are
out of the way, we can start in on the real Platinum Chalices. Looking for the most
satisfying gore, the best sidekick or the game that surprised us the
most by not sucking in 2011? You've definitely come
to the right place...
Once again, we begin our yearly celebration of all things great in gaming, the Platinum Chalices. For
our sixth annual awards event, though, we’re doing things a little differently, posting the Chalices in three parts. So while you can still
expect to see our “normal” Chalices later in the day, as well as our Game of
the Year, we’re starting today off with our special and console-exclusive
awards. If a game deserved a nod for doing something unique this year, or stood out as
the best title to only be available on one platform, you’ll find it here.
Be sure to check back later this afternoon, as our Platinum Chalices continue!
internet speeds and digital storage gets cheaper and cheaper every
year, downloadable games get closer and closer to matching the
experiences provided by their retail counterparts. They also offer the
chance for smaller development teams to experiment or stray off the
beaten path; we doubt that EA would ever publish a game featuring a dead
fetus is a power-up. They draw the line at killing unbaptized babies in
hell thank you very much. And hey, there’s no better way to detox from a
100 hour Skyrim binge than with a quick, fun 5 hour game. In
anticipation of our year end Platinum Chalice awards, we’ve compiled a
list of our favorite 2011 downloadable titles across all platforms to
help you separate the w00t from the chaff...
It's not easy being a horse, especially a horse during these tough economic
times. Despite the huge federal deficit, massive layoffs, and two wars,
American humans will find the time and money to waste on useless gifts for
friends and family members this holiday season.
Like sheep lined up for the slaughter, they gather in droves to attend Black
Friday sales. There, the humans will procure unsightly sweaters for the nephew
they never see, dresses for the niece too fat to wear them, home appliances for
mother's domestic prison, gift cards for unappreciative sons, and books about
the civil war for the father who stopped loving them years ago. But I
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...
downgraded to an XBLA/PSN download after having initially been announced as a full-scale
AAA game, I Am Alive has managed to grab our interest again. Yesterday, we got
our first look at the post-apocalyptic survival game, and saw four different
areas that gave us a good picture of I Am Alive's tense – and often bloody – gameplay...
