Another Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and you know what that means: tons of holiday-themed articles from websites like ours, scrambling to clumsily link videogames with romance and reminding the lovelorn that fictional characters have it better than they do.
A lot of stuff happens in the world of games every week - some of which you might have missed. Here's a quick round-up of what we considered to be the most talked about news stories of the past five days....Ubisoft reveals Ghost Recon Future Soldier
The new Ghost Recon replaces its advanced warfighters with future soldiers. It's coming from the same dev team that worked on the two GRAW games and is down for release at the end
There are ways to die in a game and there are ways to die. Being horrendously, but heroically squashed under a size 400 foot as we single-handedly fight a giant robot with nuclear weapons. Now that’s a respectable way to embrace gaming death. Having our hero get done in by birds, spiders or a bad case of the cold (like in the following collection of games)? Yeah, not so much. So join us as we doff our gaming hats and monocles to
Whetting our appetite for some Wild West action still further (it's pretty whet already to be honest) is this new trailer of Red Dead Redemption. It's called 'The Law' and shows you the thin blue line in frontier times. Looks pretty rough if you ask us. Still, the characters look perfect for the game and we can't wait to get our next hands-on with
Valentine’s Day approaches! What’re you gonna do? Get your special someone a heart-shaped box of chocolates and a card with a puppy on it? How Hallmark™ of you. We have a better way to ignite that sexy spark…by which we mean worse: gaming, plus, sex. It’s so stupid it just might work…or involve more awkward silences and tears than a JRPG.
We've had Dante's Inferno, the book. Then, some 700 years later, a video game based on it. Know what's missing? An animated movie based on the game of the book, that's what. And as luck would have it, that's exactly what we've got here on Blu-Ray to give away to one lucky reader, complete with a brand spanking new Blu-Ray Player to play it on. Can't say fairer than that.
Real-life shopping. Unless you enjoy shambling about like an extra in a Romero flick, it's a mostly soul-destroying activity that ranks somewhere between 'watching The X Factor' and 'tasting vomit' on our list of Things We'd Rather Not Do If We Can Help It. So it's testament to the subversive qualities of games that they can make shopping not suck. How do games do it - what makes shopping in games so much more enjoyable than shopping in
The Pirates of the Caribbean movies raked in over a billion dollars worldwide. There’s no doubt that a big part of that success was down to the loveable sea dog Captain Jack Sparrow. So how will a licensed game without him fare? Batman: Arkham Asylum was a big influence on Armada of the Damned. That game took all the things that made the DC characters and the universe so awesome, and then did something fresh and unexpected with them.
Way back in 2007 we cobbled together a fun little list of frequently mispronounced game names. Far more obnoxious than the simple “Mah-rio/May-rio” switch, these names are routinely butchered and for a defensible reason – they’re almost all nutty as hell.
We thought we’d expand on that original feature, as 2007 is like 70 million years ago in internet time.
