Yesterday, during EA’s E3 media presentation, it was finally confirmed that DICE had resumed work on the long awaited return of Mirror’s Edge. Still early in production, it will be a while before the game will be hitting the store shelves. Long enough that there doesn’t appear to be any plans (at least not as… Read More »

When Insomniac Games first showed Overstrike (the studio’s first multiplatform game) at E3 2011, the trailer was bright, colorful and showed signs of Insomniac Games doing something somewhat different in a sea of grey shooters. Then, we learned that the graphical style had been overhauled and the name had been changed to Fuse. Suddenly, the bright colorful… Read More »


Review: SimCity

SimCity is one of those classic, time-sucking franchises that egged me on to play for just another five minutes. Of course, another five minutes easily turned into hours and hours. Knowing this as I write up my SimCity review, I openly admit that there are some fond, rose-colored memories attached to my opinions of this… Read More »

In speaking with Game Informer, Deep Silver’s COO, Geoff Mulligan, had some choice words about triple-A development. “People say, ‘Oh, you acquired Volition and Metro, you’re going to be a triple-A publisher. What separates us from a triple-A publisher is that I don’t really have a desire to be a triple-A publisher. I actually think… Read More »

Sim City is pretty much dead and buried (save for the parts where it seems to work now), so I’d rather not start with an extended metaphor on the botched launch or series of lies that have been told to consumers about the product.

Dead Space 2 was my game of 2011. Given that, one could safely assume some high expectations for the third game in the series.
