House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut

Thank Rodriguez’s Planet Terror for this journey into schlocky exploitation. Originally a Wii-only title, House Of The Dead: Overkill shuffles into HD with two extra chapters of awesome grindhouse bad taste.

Payday The Heist PS3 Review

Why aren’t there more bank heist games? It’s a brilliant premise that exploits the five-minute fantasies we’ve all had, and it’s perfectly suited to gaming. Payday is ripe with potential – four player co-op bank robbing with hostages to control, safes to crack and SWAT teams to stave off – which makes it all the harder to swallow when the first few minutes reveal some shoddy game design and a…

Battlefield 3 PS3 Modern Warfare

Hey there, Rambo. Flick on the safety on that M60E4 for a second, lose the ammo belts draped across each shoulder and take a knee. You see, the war’s being fought across two titles now – Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3. Even if you’re a decorated Call Of Duty veteran, there are plenty of reasons you’ll still want to play Battlefield 3. For your consideration and to avoid humiliation,…

Modern Warfare 3 first fifteen minutes

I’ll be honest I’ve not watched this all the way through because I don’t want the spoilers. I’ve seen it up to the start screen and scanned through the rest and it’s legit but don’t blame me if it turns into Rick Astley at any point. Well, here you go: the first fifteen minutes of Modern Warfare 3. I reckon you’ve got about ten minutes before Activsion take it down…

Modern Warfare 3 kills children

Well, child. Oh, and most of London. It’s the little girl blown up in Modern Warfare 3‘s terrorist attack that’ll probably get noticed the most. I’m going to put the rest behind the click if you want to avoid spoilers…

Aliens Colonial Marines screens PS3

There are a few new Aliens screens over at developer Gearbox’s Facebook page. Not much more to say than that really. There are aliens, and marines, colonial ones. Oh and welding. Very important the welding.

Approximately three seconds. That’s how long into an exclusive, extended hands-on with Saints Row: The Third it takes to realise the level of crazy that this game packs in. Because before I can even take one step forward or spin the camera around, I’ve seen a man walking down the street in full-on S&M gear, followed by a guy in a string vest casually wielding an assault rifle. And oh, look…

Battlefield 3 PS3 review

The line between perfecting a genre and flogging it into the ground is a thin one. After being thrilled by WW2 shooters for so long in the mid-noughties, watching boats draw toward a ubiquitous beach-landing set-piece eventually grew yawnsome. Modern shooters are gradually going the same way – and for all its moments of genuine oorah-ing brilliance, Battlefield 3’s solo campaign is very much a case in point.

I’m about five hours into Battlefield 3 and I still have no idea what this Bond/Bourne inspired opening is about. It is, however, probably the highlight of the game so far as you fight through, and occasionally outside of, a speeding train. The game’s out today and we’ve got our initial verdict on the Battlefield 3′s single player game (with a full review on Monday once we’ve spent some time with the multiplayer).  We’ve also got info on Battlefield 3′s trophies…
