Aliens seems to be a video game title that isn’t going to go away anytime soon. With the release of the sub par Aliens Vs Predator, and Aliens: Colonial Marines FINALLY getting close to an actual release, why not release a classic 2D side scroller on the Nintendo Ds?
I have to say, it looks like fun! Definitely has that old skool Contra look to it. Aliens: Infestation is coming out in September, and you’ll get a chance to venture into the Sulaco, the Derelict ship, and LV-426. You can recruit and play as 19 different marines, while exploring the expanded Aliens universe. Screens past the break. READ MORE
X-Men Destiny has the makings of what could turn out to be quite an awesome game. The game focuses on you starting out as a mutant and you get to shape yourself as well as your powers. Sounds pretty excellent, I’ve been wanting to do that since I was a kid.
X-Men Destiny comes out December 31st on the Nintendo Ds, Wii, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. READ MORE
After playing Mega Man Legends 1 years ago, I had really hoped the RPG like Mega Man game would take off into a continuing series. It somewhat did, but never became the success I had hoped it would. Never the less, coming out at some point in the future is Mega Man Legends 3 for the Nintendo 3DS.
From the looks of the trailer you will be able to build robots. I fucking hope so. For those who know nothing about the Legend games, think of them like a 3rd person mega man shooter rpg. Screens past the break. READ MORE
If you’ve been waiting 100 years since the last Duke Nukem game came out and you are still having a hard time waiting for the release of DK Forever you can now pick up Duke Nukem Critical Mass for the Nintendo Ds and PSP.
In the game Duke’s original enemy Proton is back and he is launching a full out attack on earth, and of course it’s up to Duke to stop him. Kick some alien ass and save the babes. The usual. READ MORE
In X-Men Destiny you get to start out as a super hero YOU. You get to pick whatever powers you want, and basically get to kick ass. This is my kind of game. I love having free reign of my character as far as creation goes. I like to feel like “god” spewing out a person exactly as I want them.
Any who, the spotlight today is on a mutant known as Aimi Yoshida. Her power it would seem is to allow other mutants to use their powers more efficiently. Sucks to be her I guess. Head past the break for screens and her bio. READ MORE
It’s going to be hard for anyone to live up to Batman: Arkham Asylum. But I can look past that because Captain America is looking pretty awesome so far. And any game where I can kick some Nazi ass is at least a 3 in my book. In Captain America: Super Soldier you take on the Red Skull with your classic and totally epic shield. You can deflect enemy bullets right back at them in this 3rd person ass kicking game.
Past the break you can check out the games features, and a nice mix of Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo Ds screen shots. The game will release sometime this summer. READ MORE
Warner Brothers announced that in conjunction with the release of the Green Lantern film this coming summer, will be the release of Green Lantern: Rise Of The Manhunters the video game. The game will be based off the movie which stars Ryan Reynolds (My man crush), who yes, also played Deadpool. Ryan must like comics an the like, and that, is awesome.
Double Helix Games (Developers of Silent Hill: Homecoming) will be developing the game for the Playstation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360. While Griptonite who has working on tons of Marvel and superhero games, will be working on the Nintendo Ds version. Look out for the Green Lantern game and movie this summer. READ MORE
X-Men Destiny is just about every X-Men nerds wet dream. You basically start from the ground up as a super hero. Whatever special mutant powers you want are yours. I’m sure you can’t have them all, however it would be fun to rule the world. Check out this trailer below that will only get you more excited for the game.
You can expect new mutants (though, I would have thought by now they have sucked that well completely dry), lots of team work, and with any luck some beautiful graphics to go along with it. No release date yet, but the game will release on Nintendo Ds and Wii, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. READ MORE
Since Batman Arkham Asylum was such a success, more and more badass superheroes videogames are coming forth. With good reason. Batman proved that great super hero games could be made. So why not run down the list and start cranking them out? The game is being made for the 5 major non PC non cell phone systems so just about everyone will be able to get their hands it.
The game story is being written by Eisner Award-winning writer and lead Thor comic book author Matt Fraction. The game will also be voiced by Chris Hemsworth (Thor the upcoming movie, George Kirk in 2009′s Star Trek) and Tom Hiddleston (a number of TV movies). Screens past the break. No release is yet known. READ MORE
So I know I’m totally late on this, but I figured I’d post about it anyhow because it looks like it could be incredible. Since the release of Batman Arkham Asylum had incredible success, I think it really opened up a superhero door. Instead of having games like X-Men Legends and those like it, we can have full on incredible games like Batman, but with other superheros such as Captain America, and so on.
The game will be set in the World War 2 era and Captain America like a badass will be fighting against the Hydra Army, Iron Cross and Red Skull. You of course will get to use his totally badass shield as a weapon and for defense. Check out screens past the break, and the game is looking to be released on the Nintendo Ds, Wii, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3. No release date is known.
For those old skool Goldeneye fans, this video below will bring back some memories for sure. On top of bringing back old levels, they are introducing some awesome looking new ones as well that you can see in the video.
The epic re-imagining of Goldeneye will be hitting the Nintendo Wii and Ds November 2nd of this year. READ MORE
Tokyo Game Show is here and so far it’s the most exciting gaming event of the year, for horror fans at least. The most exciting news, at least for me, was the unveiling of the collaborative effort between Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, No More Heroes creator Suda51, and Silent Hill composer/producer Akira Yamaoka: the new action horror project, officially dubbed Shadows of the Damned.
But that’s certainly not it, there’s also been news on Resident Evil 6, Dead Space 2 multiplayer details, the exciting reveal of Project Dark by the guys who made the amazing Demon’s Souls, a Devil May Cry reboot, and two limb-flailing horror games for the Kinect. READ MORE
We’ve finally made it, September is here and with it the start of the holiday season, beginning with Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and the long anticipated Halo: Reach. But before you move on to new and better things, why not grab a soda and take a seat next to me so we can both take part in this retrospective on all August had to offer?
Sure September is pretty exciting on the new release front, but August gave us Gamescom, the latter half of the XBLA Summer of Arcade, and… Kane & Lynch 2? So if you think there’s even the slightest of chances that you could’ve missed even a single headline last month you should most definitely read on to get caught up. It’s what the orphans would want you to do, and you don’t want to upset the orphans, do you? READ MORE
Back in April I let loose my inner fanboy and talked all crazy like about an unannounced multi-platform action/horror game that’s (not-so) secretly in development by some of the most talented designers in the industry. I predicted it could “redefine horror”, despite knowing little about the title, and then predicted we would see it at E3. Well, the latter prediction turned out to be wrong but the former is still entirely possible, and when the Tokyo Game Show rolls around next month we’ll know a little more about the game as it will be announced at the event.
We’re nearing the end of the summer games drought, with some major releases preparing to hit shelves, and our consoles, next month. Combine that with TGS and September is looking pretty great right now. So to tide you over, why don’t you check out the biggest horror headlines, including some updates on Dead Space 2, a Halloween RPG, Left 4 Dead 2’s new DLC, and some nightmare-inducing Pokemon. Hopefully all this will help numb the pain that was left after Doom 4 failed to show its beautiful face at QuakeCon earlier this month. READ MORE
It’s that time of the month again, as a new month begins we take a quick glance back at the previous month’s offerings. July was, as it usually is, light on new releases but fairly heavy on news (thanks to Comic Con).
Inside you’ll find some thoughts from TJ, our impressions on the upcoming Saw 2: Flesh and Blood (it’s looking like more gory fun!), a few reviews, and what we think of the QPad 5K gaming mouse and GameCom headset. So if you think you might’ve missed something (maybe you were outside doing whatever people do outside in the summer?) you should definitely get caught up. READ MORE
We’ve officially entered the dreaded summer drought. July and August are infamous for their lack of big releases, and while for the most part this year isn’t much different from previous years, that doesn’t mean we don’t have a handful of things to look forward to as we anxiously await the beauty that is September, and the holiday season soon after.
But that’s not what we’re here to talk about, oh no sir. How about you take your mind off the lack of excitement right now by looking back at the pure awesome sauce that was June. Just last month there was E3; the biggest gaming event of the year, and this year did not disappoint. In fact, there were so many big announcements that there’s a fairly good chance you might’ve missed a few. Luckily, you can remedy this by clicking that little ‘Read More’ link to get completely caught up. READ MORE
Final Fantasy The 4 Heroes of Light is a traditional style rpg from Square Enix strictly for the Nintendo Ds. The game was designed to look traditional but with new game technology. The game story stays classic as the 4 heroes embark on an epic journey filled with dragons, kings, princesses, witches and so much more.
In my opinion the best part about the game is the fact that you can join up with 3 of your friends and embark on the adventure together. They are also using the common job system which you can easily flip through by changing the hat of your player. 20 classes to choose between. Lots more past the break. READ MORE
It’s that time of the month again, the time where we get all nostalgic and look back at the previous month’s offerings. That’s what Dead Pixels Monthly, or what I affectionately refer to as DPM, is all about. Well, that and unicorns. But what isn’t about Unicorns nowadays? Nothing, that’s what.
April might’ve been a little lacking in the new releases department, but May more than made up for that with Alan Wake, Red Dead Redemption, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and a slew of other titles I could list here but won’t. But as amazing as the past months has been, it’s merely a warm-up for June, which holds the highly anticipated E3 event that will no doubt shower us with jaw-dropping headlines, one after another.

Shoot me in the knee if I thought mind readings couldn’t get this serious. In Lux Pain, you’re playing as Atsuki Saijou, an undercover detective for an organization called the Fort. Atsuki has been assigned to Kisaragi City (hilariously located in America) to search for the originator of a mind parasite called Silent, which embeds itself into the shinen of other people and hijacks their minds. Shinen is pretty much what they call memories and/or feelings. You are immediately introduced to Natsuki, the game lolita (who is pleasantly obnoxious this time around) who can sense a person’s “Shinen” in the entire radius of a town. There’s also Nola, your tech-savvy go-to-gal for info and tough, pessimistic Liu Yee.
