Our last preview of Kinect Star Wars was less than kind. The simple act of moving a Jedi through a totally linear, droid-filled tube was so laborious and unresponsive that Chris dubbed it "the worst thing that's ever existed." I can happily say the newly announced podracing section of the game is nowhere near as troublesome, and dare I say it was actually fun?
Kinect Star Wars caught us off-guard with some fun minigames during a recent demo. But there was a particular one that waved its hand and won us over...
Developer Neocore Games’ original King Arthur released in 2009 and was sort of a surprise hit. Sure, your average pedestrian probably won’t know what the hell it is, but the game provided an unapologetically deep RTS experience and received fairly positive reviews. With two years gone by, Neocore is finally ready to unveil a sequel that, aside from sporting a title that leaves nothing to the imagination, looks to continue the trend of relentlessly complex...
Long before the glorious days of King Arthur, even before
his father, Uther Pendragon was born, Britannia saw the arrival of the Legions.
In the name of the Roman Emperors they invaded the south, then set out to
conquer the whole land. At the northernmost point of their conquest, where they
met the sav—blah blah blah blah. King Arthur II has a story, but you're not
here for that. You want to hear about the big battles. You want to hear
about the political intrigue. You want to hear about the dragons.
And we saw all of those in our short time with King Arthur II: The
Role-Playing Wargame, NeoCore's sequel to their popular strategy game.
We recently sat down with the game's prologue and, mouse in hand,
marched into the twisted, fantastical world, ready to do battle with
massive armies... after taking part in some political back-stabbing, of
You just can't please some people. First, new-school fighting fans complained that SNK's King of Fighters series was stuck forever in 2D. Then when King of Fighters: Maximum Impact took the series into the third dimension at last, they didn't like that either. Hopefully, everybody will be happy with King of Fighters 2006, due out this summer.
Granted, we barely know enough to tell whether or not the second foray into 3D will please anyone at all. In Japan, KOF2006 is merely known as Maximum
Sooner or later, all things come to an end. Empires fall, cities crumble and the series that was stubbornly synonymous with 2D fighting must finally move into the third dimension. But don't get angry just yet; King of Fighters 2006 might look different, but from what we've played so far, the action's just as good as ever.
Granted, KOF 2006 (released as King of Fighters Maximum Impact 2 in Japan) makes a few trade-offs. The roster had to be trimmed down to 25 fighters - still impressive for a
Editors Brett Elston and Chris Antista took some time last week to interview representatives from some of the biggest games Comic-Con 2009 had to offer.

Eastern Europe continues to be a fertile spawning ground for reverential games inspired by genre legends. The original King’s Bounty was the precursor to the Heroes of Might & Magic series, and, like those classics, this new Russian-made game is primarily focused on tactical, turn-based combat on hexagonal battlefields. Addictive combat is clearly the primary appeal of this genre, but King’s Bounty: The Legend is aiming to
