The Resident Evil Extravaganza continues with five story heavy minutes of Revelations gameplay footage that premiered at Capcom’s 15th anniversary event. If you own a 3DS, you can grab the demo from the Nintendo eShop right now. Or, you can check out the footage after the break. Even if you’re not necessarily interested in the game the video is still worth checking out, if only to laugh at the ridiculous flock of seagulls hairdo that red-haired guy is sporting. It’s a classy look.
Revelations, due out on February 7 for the Nintendo 3DS, is only the first Resident Evil prepping to release this year. It will be followed by Operation Raccoon City on March 20 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, and Resident Evil 6 on November 20. READ MORE
As we all mentally prepare ourselves for our return to a more horrifying Resident Evil when Revelations releases on February 7, some new details have come out regarding the creatures we’ll be fighting and the possibility of a demo. The monsters definitely rank up there in the what-the-fuck-is-that category that Resident Evil 4′s Regenerators fell into — seriously, those things terrified me — so that’s good for a game that promises a return to the series’ roots in survival horror.
Most of these things look like they were ripped from Silent Hill; the Ooze in particular is something I could easily picture lurking in a foggy alley. Head past the break some details on a possible demo and a look at some of the ass-ugly creatures we’ll be fighting when Revelations hits next month. READ MORE
Thanks for David Harley for the heads up about this. Movies.com posted yesterday that apparently Light and Shadow Productions was making the Gremlins game 10 years ago for the Playstation 2, and Nintendo Gamecube. However based on the video below, you can tell why the project was canned.
How could you make a GOOD Gremlins game? READ MORE
I don’t own a 3DS and haven’t had too much interest in one until I started seeing gameplay from this game. I mean, damn does it look good, especially for a handheld title. With the 3DS’ price now at the low, low price of $169.99 I might finally be getting my hands on one, followed swiftly by this game. Too bad it’s not coming out until next year, but don’t you worry, Uncle Adam has you taken care of with some Revelations goodies, including some gameplay below.
Not enough? I agree. That’s why you’ll find even more gameplay and a batch of new screenshots fresh out of Gamescom waiting for you after the break. If that’s not enough, well, I suppose you’ll have to come with me to my bedroom. I might have something else for you, and I promise it’s just as terrifying as Revelations will be. READ MORE
So Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is finally out and with one major exception, people seem to be liking it so far. You see, there’s a little issue with the game that keeps you from being able to delete save files. Weird, right? I mean, how many games don’t let you start fresh? Understandably, this bothered a lot of people and stirred up a little controversy when a rumor arose that Capcom removed this feature we all take for granted to try and keep people from trading in their game. Game companies don’t make money off used game sales so it makes sense that Capcom, who’s notorious for their shady strategies to fight used game sales (like with strict DRM), would want to try and motivate gamers to keep their game.
When asked as to whether or not deleting save files was implemented to influence us to keep their game, Capcom responded with an unsurprising “no.” Actually, their response was a little more eloquent. Check it out after the jump. READ MORE
Did you hear? Nintendo’s next console has been unveiled and it’s capable of some pretty cool things. Sure, it looks like a Wii with rounded edges and its controller doesn’t look like the most confortable thing you could hold for hours on end – if you’re focusing on those things than you’re missing the point. The Wii U is Nintendo’s attempt at satisfying us, the hardcore market, and with the lineup of games the system has for it so far (more on that later), it looks like they might be on the right path to capturing the hearts of people who aren’t soccer moms, retired or can’t legally drive.
We’ve covered some of the important features and the many ways you can play it, but there’s still plenty we haven’t discussed. I’m talking about the games you can expect on the console and the specs, or at least the ones Nintendo has revealed so far. Head past the break to get in the know.READ MORE
Earlier this morning Nintendo’s followup to their hugely successful Wii was unveiled with the monicker Wii U and it’s pretty exciting. Arguably the most innovative thing about it is its controller, which is great if you have to share a television since it allows you to continue playing on the controller’s screen should you have to give up the TV. Oh, and it’s backwards compatible with the Wii’s games as well as its peripherals, so that’s pretty great too.
One thing we didn’t touch on when covering the console’s reveal was the myriad of ways to play the Wii U. If you head past the break you can find all of the ways you’ll be able to experience your games (I’ll give you a hint: there’s more than six ways) when it violently breaks down retail shelves sometime next year.

Nintendo’s E3 press conference just wrapped up and it ended with a bang: the reveal of their next console, the Wii U, and specifically its controller. It confirms the rumors that their next console had a controller with a massive (6.2″) touchscreen on it, as you can see below. Nintendo Global President Satoru Iwata said Nintendo’s goal is to appeal to both the casual and hardcore markets, “The goal of innovation is to serve every player, then though each brings to video games an individual appetite, a personal passion and a distinct gaming history.” Nintendo is definitely trying to address the concerns of core gamers, a majority of which never warmed up to the family-friendly Wii console.
The Wii U’s controller might not be the most attractive thing on the market, but its large touchscreen, twin analog sticks, a front-facing camera, and gyroscope are still easier for my mind to wrap itself around then that Wiimote, which after years of using controllers for the PlayStation and Xbox, it just never felt quite right. The rumors that you could take the Wii U controller on the go, making it a portable gaming device, were squashed. However, if someone wants to use the TV you can switch the screen to the one on the controller and continue your gaming uninterrupted. Head past the break for some of the console’s announced games, a look at the console itself, and when we can expect this exciting new device. READ MORE

Now that the picture below grabbed your attention, I can get down to the nerdy end of things. The gaming industry in 2010 brought in somewhere over 33 billion dollars, and that is with sales of around 3.2 billion games. Those are amazing numbers to see in such a terrible economy. It goes to show us gamers the industry is not going to slow down for anyone ever.
If you head past the break you can see the 33 Billion broken down by console, dlc, android, etc. READ MORE

Well almost 1 year ago exactly Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 set a record as the biggest entertainment launch in history pulling in 310 million dollars in sales. Well Call Of Duty: Black Ops brought in 360 million in sales. INSANE. 2 years running Activision and its 2 Call Of Duty producing children Treyarch and Infinity Ward destroyed the competition.
Although it does help sales having a multi-platform release, none the less they have still together pulled in close to a billion dollars. READ MORE
Terrifying moments aren’t just limited to horror games; even the most innocent and huggable of children’s titles can house within it a level filled with twisted mockeries of sanity that bring us to the brink of madness before killing us and forcing us to start over again. What makes these levels all the more frightening is their sudden appearance, in a game we would’ve never expected such an experience.
We’ve toiled away spending hundreds, possibly thousands of hours researching dozens of games across all imaginable platforms just so we could be sure to give you the definite list on the 15 shit-out-your-spine scariest moments in non-horror games. So go ahead dear reader, and muse over our list, vigorously disagree with it, and tell us just how wrong we are. Come on, we can take it. READ MORE
Since Rock Band came out, it has taken its place as one of my most played games of all time. Rock Band 2 came out, and the majestic Ion drum kit, which I purchased and ran me about 300 dollars. I’ve spent an ungodly amount on extra songs, and we are less than 2 months from the release of the 3rd game.
So on that note, check out all the magical songs you’ll get to play past the break. READ MORE
It really started around the time the Next Gen systems came out, but the video game, music and movie worlds are colliding like never before. Actors becoming musicians, actors voicing video game characters, musicians becoming actors who voice video game characters and become sports stars. Everything just keeps coming together. Below you can check out Avenged Sevenfold’s new video for Welcome To The Family, that features footage from the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Opps.
You will be able to pick up COD Black Opps on November 9 for the PC, Playstation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360. And Avenged Sevenfolds album ‘Nightmare’ you’ll be able to pick up Tuesday the 27th of July. READ MORE
It’s safe to say The Big Three brought their A games to this year’s biggest gaming expo. After the last couple years of resting on their laurels, Nintendo really kicked ass with some seriously jaw-dropping announcements tailored to excite their audience, rather than their investors. Nintendo wasn’t alone though, as Microsoft threw out more than their fair share of surprises including the long anticipated Xbox 360 redesign (and might I say how sexy the new, slimmer 360 is?), and Sony gave us an upgraded PSN as well as the delicious Twisted Metal.
But that’s just the pre-E3 conferences, there’s still the actual Electronic Entertainment Expo that managed to give us even more tasty, video game goodness. So with all the goods that E3 brought us this year, what were the craziest, most insanely unpredictable unveilings? TJ and I have ranked the ten announcements that left us picking our jaws off the floor, let’s see if you agree. READ MORE
Nintendo, an obviously large force at E3 has set it up so you can watch their presentation live from start to finish. Nintendo’s E3 Presentation will begin at 9AM Pacific time on Tuesday, June 15. If you head to E3.Nintendo.com you’ll be able to check out everything as it goes down.
I’ll update as soon as we find out what games they’ll be showing off this year. READ MORE
It’s official. Sony’s new motion controls have been unveiled and they’re superior to the Wii’s. How could I say something like this? I’m a Sony fanboy, you declare? Here are the facts: the controllers have less buttons (good for new gamers), chargeable batteries right out of the box, they’re more accurate even when pointed away from the TV, and did I mention they’re wireless? Oh, and they have color changing balls on the tips, and who doesn’t love colorful balls? Colorblind Nazis, that’s who.
But this isn’t a post written by a Sony fanboy (though, should a Sony bigwig read this and decide to toss some Move my way, I’m easy to convince. Very easy. Seriously, I’m an extraordinarily slutty games journalist void of any integrity.) Instead, this is merely a discussion on possible exciting ways the genre could make full use of the Move, Natal, and while we’re on the subject of new tech, we’ll even talk about 3D. Afterwards you can trot on over to the comments section and tell me what I forgot. READ MORE
