PAX 2011: Rage Preview

In: Articles by Chris "FighterAce100" Salazar

29 Aug 2011

I can feel the RAGE inside me… Rage is a title that makes me think of Bulletstorm; which I will state openly I didn’t care for at all (editor’s note: And you’re wrong for thinking that). I had kept myself isolated from Rage related so I could keep any preconceptions at bay and form my own [...]

PAX 2011: Skyrim Preview

In: Uncategorized by Nick "Alsop Live" Dinicola

The Skyrim demo begins with the character creator, and the first thing you’ll probably notice is how much better the characters look compared to Oblivion. Characters actually look good now; men are handsome, women are pretty, they are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. There’s also a variety of non-human characters, and all of them have [...]

PAX 2011: Forza 4 Preview

Forza 4 is coming and it’s better than ever with more cars, more tracks, more scenery and even more fine details. And it’s those fine details that will make or break this game, and from what I saw at PAX today, it’s guaranteed to make you smile.

PAX 2011: Aliens: Colonial Marines Preview

The Aliens franchise is nothing less than timeless for fans of sci-fi. No one can forget Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) in the power loader fighting the Queen on board the Sulaco in the second movie, fighting not only for her life but Newt’s as well, and the new future she wanted to provide for her. The music was epic, the direction was suspenseful and [...]

PAX 2011: Rise of Nightmares Preview

In: Articles by Nick "Alsop Live" Dinicola

27 Aug 2011

Rise of Nightmares is a Kinect survival-horror game by Sega. No controller is used at all, at any point. It’s an interesting idea, and so far Sega seems to be pulling it off remarkably well. It has a very Hostel vibe to it: You play as Josh, an American riding a train through Europe with [...]

PAX 2011: Mass Effect 3 Preview

In: Articles by Chris "FighterAce100" Salazar

26 Aug 2011

The huge signs and posters, the non-disclosure agreement on the iPad I signed while waiting in line, the very strict control of who sees what and where — it’s all a part of the PAX experience for big title games. Mass Effect 3 is now partially playable and if you enjoyed the second game in [...]

PAX 2011: Dead Island Preview

In: Articles by Nick "Alsop Live" Dinicola

26 Aug 2011

You wake up drunk and everything has already gone to hell. This is how Dead Island begins, both the demo at PAX and the final game itself. Sadly, the intro doesn’t change depending on which character you start as, but that doesn’t mean they’re indistinguishable from each other. The demo forces me to play as [...]

PAX 2011: Borderlands 2 Preview

In: Articles by Nick "Alsop Live" Dinicola

26 Aug 2011

Before the demo starts, Steve Gibson of Gearbox reassures all of us in the room that Borderlands 2 isn’t just a quick, cash-in sequel; and the fact that it’s not coming out until “fiscal year 2013” certainly supports that claim. After watching the demo, I’m fully convinced: Gearbox is keeping what works while changing what’s familiar, [...]
