Major League Baseball 2K11 and Top Spin 4 from 2K Sports usher in the springtime of gaming for 2011. If you are familiar with 2K games then you can expect the same attention to detail and deep roster on both titles. Much hype last year came from MLB’s contest to give away one million dollars to the first person who could pitch a perfect game. The same contest will take place again this year but doesn’t start with the game release but instead at the opening of the baseball season – giving everyone a chance to ‘warm up’ before taking

Old school beat-em-ups have fallen to the wayside ever since the rise of 3D gaming. The audience has become more and more niche, despite titles like Castle Crashers and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Every game needs a hook now rather than throwing the player at some thugs and expecting magic to happen. When the 3DS was announced, I thought games would use it as a way to illustrate depth, not breasts. With such a fan-service oriented gimmick, Sengan Kagura Burst seemed like it would be nothing more than an exhaustively long boob joke. Imagine my surprise when despite the
Call of Duty is one of gaming’s biggest franchises and has sold millions upon millions of copies for years. It became annualized and exploded with Call of Duty 4, and has continued to sell well ever since. Sales isn’t everything, though. There have been murmurings and whispers that the self-proclaimed king of first person shooters was starting to take a slide. Not only in sales, but also in quality. As I dove into Call of Duty: Ghosts the dichotomy of fun gameplay versus new innovations and quality was swimming through my head. Was it enough that a game has solid,
Watching competitive gaming or eSports either online or in person can be a treat but nothing fills the excitement level like watching top pros go head to head in StarCraft 2. In November the fine folks at Red Bull will host the ‘Red Bull Battlegrounds‘ tournament pitting 8 top StarCraft 2 pros against each other for a grand prize of $50,000. The stakes are high and the excitement level even higher! Red Bull Battlegrounds will kick-off November 23 & 24 2013 – tickets are available now to attend the event in person which will be held at the Hammerstein Ballroom
Time is on your side in Super TIME Force, a new side-scroller by Capybara Games. You control an elite squad of time travelers that spans from normal soldiers to skateboarding dinosaurs. Your enemies are just as varied sometimes leading to a bullet-hell like atmosphere. This is both the best and worst part of playing as the Temporal Inevitability Manipulation Experts, as difficulty is steep even on the first level. Still it wouldn’t be fair if you didn’t have the edge somehow which is where this game really shines. The rewind mechanic is the meat of the gameplay. Whenever you die
I’ve always felt that boxing games have to be one of the hardest types of games to make. The developer has to walk a razor-thin line between a fighting game and a sports game. In Real Boxing, Vivid Games does their best to walk that line and at times is very successful at it. Released exclusively on the PlayStation Vita, Real Boxing puts you in the ring to duke it out in beautiful detail. Visually, the game is stunning. Running on the Unreal Engine 3, all the stops are pulled out to give a dynamic, visceral experience in the ring.
Grand Theft Auto V Review – Part 1: Living in Los Santos That’s the best way to describe it, really. If you’re not one of the millions of gamers who contributed to Rockstar Games’ one BILLION dollars in opening week sales for its latest orchestration of unbelievable violence and dry wit, then you need to know that Grand Theft Auto: V will consume your life. GTAV is still as wonderfully wild and cinematic as you’ve grown to expect this franchise to be. The biggest hurdle to get over with a series as notorious as this one, which has had past
