EGM Review:
Batman: Arkham City: Nightwing DLC

By
Posted on November 3, 2011 AT 01:19pm
So, with Batman: Arkham City featuring Catwoman and Robin as playable challenge map characters, it would only make sense that the next member of the Bat-family to be featured would be the original sidekick for the Caped Crusader in the form of Grayson. But is he worth the $7 DLC price-tag (560 Microsoft Points) he comes with or should he simply retreat back to the shadows? READ MORE

Hands-On: Lollipop Chainsaw

By
Posted on November 1, 2011 AT 07:59am
Suda51 loves nothing more than to parody American culture as well as mix in some musical aspects to his games and so a lot of the elements to his upcoming hack ‘n’ slash zombie fest Lollipop Chainsaw should come as no surprise. Described as sex, blood, and rock ‘n’ roll, Lollipop Chainsaw follows one Juliet Starling, a former cheerleader of San Romero High School (named such in tribute to the father of modern zombie culture, George A. Romero) and how she must put down many of her former classmates who have been turned into the walking undead. READ MORE

Top 5 Games That Scare the S*** Out of Us

By
Posted on October 31, 2011 AT 04:57pm
Games can educate us, entertain us, and enlighten us in many ways. They are also often more capable than any poorly written Hollywood blockbuster in scaring the s*** out of us and these terrifying tales are a testament to the medium’s interactive experience. So, in honor of this most horrific of holidays, we here at EGM have compiled a list of our top five games, in no particular order, that have probably collectively taken a couple of years off our lives and forced us to change our pants on several occasions.

ADMIT ONE – Movie Previews for the Weekend of Oct 28th, 2011

No surprise to see Paranormal Activity 3 pull away with the box office win and it might repeat as there are no horror movies looking to compete with it this Halloween weekend. There are four movies that have their own merits though and the audience that saw Paranormal Activity 3, if they’re regular movies goers, will have plenty of new choices on their hands worthy of their bucks depending on their demo. So click here to look at the competition! READ MORE

House of the Dead: Overkill: Extended Cut

By
Posted on October 26, 2011 AT 06:30am
Back in 2009, an arcade classic was in desperate need of a makeover—and, of all places, it came from the Wii, surprisingly enough. The House of the Dead: Overkill served as a prequel for the immensely popular lightgun House of the Dead games and explained, sort of, both the origins of Agent G (the series’ main protagonist) and the zombie-causing formula he’s fought for 15 years—all wrapped in a ’70s B-movie setting with over-the-top voice acting, tons of sex and swearing, and cheesy moments galore. Looking to capitalize on that surprising success, Sega’s ported the game over to the PS3 with some upgrades in hopes of catching lightning in a bottle with a new audience. READ MORE

The Cursed Crusade

By
Posted on October 26, 2011 AT 06:00am
The Cursed Crusade revolves around the idea that those who commit heinous crimes against their fellow men—whether in the name of God or not—see their bloodline marked for generations, and that their descent to hell is guaranteed. I think this game may suffer from the fate it laid out for several of its in-game characters. READ MORE

Kinect Sports: Season Two

By
Posted on October 26, 2011 AT 05:00am
When Kinect launched last year, several titles showed off the possibility of the peripheral, but few had the lasting appeal of Kinect Sports. Fun when played individually—but truly appreciated with a group of friends—the game made a clear, lasting impression on the casual market. Now, Microsoft looks to see if they can reel in soccer moms again with Kinect Sports: Season Two. American football, baseball, golf, darts, tennis, and skiing are all featured in this newest iteration—and if you thought you broke a sweat before, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. READ MORE

Motion Sports: Adrenaline

By
Posted on October 26, 2011 AT 04:02am
The MotionSports series is Ubisoft’s attempt to give gamers a more realistic alternative to the Kinect Sports offerings while also providing a variety of different sports. Since Kinect Sports took a cue from several of the original MotionSports games and added football and skiing to their gamut of minigames this year, MotionSports decided to go a step further with Adrenaline and focus on extreme sports: mountain-climbing, kite-surfing, wingsuit-gliding, mountain-biking, kayaking, and the return of skiing. But could they fix their own flaws from their first go around? READ MORE

Assassin’s Creed Encyclopedia to release same day as Revelations

By
Posted on October 25, 2011 AT 09:00am
For many people, what makes Assassin’s Creed so great is how it molds the story it wants to tell around actual real world events from history. In this way, Assassin’s Creed has written its own special history that parallels our own. But it can get a little confusing after a while as well just trying to keep things like who all the Borgias are straight and what the differences are between a Turkish Flanged Mace and a Florentine Mace. Well, with their fourth game in the series in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations about to come out, there is a lot more history to Assassin’s Creed than even a lot of us diehards may realize and so Ubisoft is getting ready to release the Assassin’s Creed Encyclopedia.

The Pullbox – Issue #10

By
Posted on October 22, 2011 AT 07:50pm
Sorry for the lateness for this week’s Pullbox. Our big reveal for NFL Blitz this week forced a lot of people’s responsibilities to be pushed back some, including mine, and so I’m still in the process of catching up on everything. Never fear though as it was another solid week in comics as we’re seeing the return of H.A.M.M.E.R. storyline ramp up in the Avengers, Fear Itself finally came to an end and ANOTHER Marvel event has started with The Fearless. Meanwhile, we also saw the end of Uncanny X-Men so a lot was going on with Marvel to compete for my spotlight. DC continues to be strong with several new titles and a surprising new Indie comic makes it into the Pullbox this week. So here’s this week’s Pullbox! READ MORE

ADMIT ONE – Movie Premiere Previews for the Weekend of Oct 21st, 2011

By
Posted on October 22, 2011 AT 12:30pm
No surprise to see Real Steel to come out on top for a second week in a row last week especially against a pair of remakes, but it was a little disappointing to see The Big Year debut in 9th place. But as I forewarned, it just seemed too smart of the average moviegoer. With another trifecta of movies coming out this week, it should be interesting to see if Real Steel can hold off another remake and another seasonal horror movie. READ MORE

Hands-On: Saints Row: The Third

By
Posted on October 19, 2011 AT 10:27am
There are a lot of games out there that take themselves too seriously. Everything is about saving the world from this or protecting people from that. Rarely do you get a game like Saints Row: The Third that just doesn’t give a crap about any of that and whose main purpose is to just give the gamer as many tools as possible to blow stuff up. It was for this reason that I was drooling like Homer Simpson over barbecue for the chance to go hands on with this game and it looks to deliver in ways I couldn’t even begin to imagine. READ MORE

Batman: Arkham City

By

Comic book fans are easily some of the most rabid fans out there. Maybe it’s because of the history, maybe it’s the appeal of the characters, maybe it’s because of a lack of social skills developed in their mom’s basement, but whatever the reason, whenever something features comic book characters, the fans tear it apart. Well, good luck finding fault with this one. And trust me, being a fan myself, I tried. Check out our full review of Batman: Arkham City here! READ MORE

PowerUp Heroes

PowerUp Heroes, Ubisoft's superheroic Kinect offering, puts you in direct control of your Xbox 360 Avatar. You’re just going about your digital business when a spaceship crash-lands in front of you, and—in a scene that hearkens back to Hal Jordan’s origins as Green Lantern—a dying alien warns that a menace to the galaxy is on its way to Earth. Only by accepting and mastering this extraterrestrial’s potent power will you be able to overcome this global threat. READ MORE

ADMIT ONE – Movie Premiere Previews for the Weekend of Oct. 14th, 2011

We have a new heavyweight champ at the top of the box office and it is little surprise with the incessant PR campaign the movie had to see Real Steel as the big grosser last weekend with over $27 million. The Ides of March had a strong debut with over $10 million to take the distant number two spot as well, which was just enough to edge out the previous week’s top two, Dolphin Tale and Moneyball, which did fairly well with over $9 and $7 million respectively to come in at three and four. Let's see if any of this week's newcomers can take a shot at the title! READ MORE
