Feature: But Can We Play As The Zombies?

PopCap On Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare

Plants vs Zombies is boldly going where no popular gaming franchise has gone before: to a land of over-the-shoulder camera angles and gleefully bobbing crosshairs, whereupon things will be shot mercilessly. OK, maybe it's not the boldest move ever in the grand scheme of things, but Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is quite a departure for PopCap's vegetable stew of a tower porch defender, and it's…

Who ‘Won’ E3 And Other Assorted Musings

E3 happened last week! It was full of glitz and glamour and Z-list celebrities and A-list zombies and TV TV sports and cars and also games sometimes. I was there all by my lonesome, because I hate sleep and love hoarding awful press room box lunches so I can pile their damp, discarded remains into impregnable Journalism Forts. Also, to observe, learn, and then wordpuke…

CDP On Free Witcher DLC, Next-Gen DRM Concerns

Geralt's hit the big time. He's got his own open world, a handsomely haggard beard, and a simultaneous launch across multiple "next-gen" platforms. It's the latter, however, that could spell his undoing - or at least make his witchy charms a lot less bewitching for a sizable portion of PC gamers. Console-makers, after all, aren't too terribly fond of free updates, but CD Projekt's modus…

E3 2013, Next-Gen, And PC’s Bizarre Invisibility Problem

After sitting through nearly all of E3's press conferences (and catching up on Microsoft's, which I skipped to marvel at my super cutting-edge next-gen loft sink), I came away with two raucously growling gut reactions: 1) new Mirror's Edge yes yes yes yay yes mmm-hmm yes good indeed and 2) did I just step into an alternate dimension where PC never emerged from the primordial gaming…

Watch Dogs: Ubi Does Open-World Hack’n’Stealth

Tcch, everyone knows you don't reveal new game IPs at E3. It's all about companies trying to out-sequel each other. Or, if you're Microsoft, being insane enough to believe that anyone on Earth is interested that they've spilt more Bing onto their Xbox dashboard. Ubisoft have elected to buck the safe-bet trend with the mighty promising Watch Dogs - an apparently semi-open world game of…

Et Tu, E3? Valve Not Planning Any New Announcements

[Sound of a doorbell ringing.] "Hello there! Yes, I have a delivery for you, Mr, um, Hugh Mann." "What? That can't be right. I never ordered anything." "No, no, I'm pretty sure you did. I couldn't help but notice you're having a parade out back. It's very nice. Wouldn't want anything unfortunate to happen to it." "Er, yeah. Anyway, I guess I'll sign for this so…

Mafia II World Non-Exclusive E3 Trailer!

EDIT: Ahem. E3 is starting next week, but we aren't affected by the trifling issues of linear time. So we have for you a world unexclusive reveal of the new Mafia II trailer, The Made Man. This is not the only place you can watch the trailer until it's released properly at E3 next week. Which means we're the same as everyone else. Sigh.

Interview: GSC on STALKER: Clear Sky

Well, we've had more than a week of E3 coverage, and I'm sure you're sick of it by now. So I'm finishing up! I checked my huge pile of notes, recordings and press materials and found I have only one thing left to write about – Stalker: Clear Sky. This sequel/prequel/remake of the acclaimed, if divisive, FPS is an interesting one because it's the only…

RPS-ish At-Ish E3: Housecleaning – Capcom,Warner

Now here’s something I managed to forget about completely until I was sitting in Phoenix Airport, lamenting my missed connecting flight. Capcom actually really quite like the PC. I spent a fair bit of time in the Capcom booth having my arse handed to me in Street Fighter IV by a team of people who apparently came to E3 already unstoppably good at the game,…

RPS-ish At-Ish E3: Housecleaning – SOE

[Thanks to extreme tiredness, I didn’t manage to write up all of my impressions from E3. Over the next couple of days I’ll clean house and post up my leftover thoughts.] So if the Sony Online Entertainment game that you are looking forward to is DC Universe Online, well, E3 wasn’t for you. Because cleverly, SOE are going to reveal all of the details of…

RPS-ish At-Ish E3: Day 4 – Bethesda Softworks

I headline “Bethesda Softworks” to keep the format I’ve been using, but really I should just have put “Fallout 3” because that’s all they were showing and that’s all anyone cares about. I had a little bit of problem with this scheduled appointment – The time I was set to see it got confused by either PR or myself (we couldn’t decide) – so I…

E3 Rubbish, Say Bigwigs

From our comfortable slouch in front of our dusty LCD screens, E3 2008's seemed surprisingly fertile after last year's dampest of squibs. Perhaps there weren't many omigosh new announcements, but it gave a glad chance to see long-awaited shinies such as Dragon Age, Fallout 3 (DON'T SAY A BLOODY WORD), Spore, Mirror's Edge, Dawn of War II, Borderlands, Alpha Protocol and more in extensive action.…

E3: The Trailers – Dragon Age. In-game!

At last - no silly cinematic, no unhelpful announcement of name-change - just honest-to-god in-game action from Bioware's next RPG. It's not Mass Effect with orcs. It's not Oblivion with, er, different orcs. In fact, it's quite possibly exactly what you cRPG-starved masses been praying for (well, I say that, but really I'm braced for the inevitable storm of complaint). And for the non-cRPG-starved masses,…

RPS-ish At-ish E3: Day 3 – Sega

I’ve just passed the mid-point of E3, and by this point, no matter how hard I try, it’s all starting to blend together. It’s at this point that you might start to hallucinate that everything you’ve seen was actually all just the same game - a music title set in a decaying city that featured instrument peripherals with hundreds of buttons. Thankfully I’ve kept it…

E3: The Trailers – Tom Clancy’s (yeah right) Endwar

Does anyone under 50 even read Tom Clancy books anyway? So, "your voice is the ultimate weapon." I'll be honest - while I've no doubt all that Ubi money can make something that (unlike the horrible Will of Steel) works, I'm finding it hard to believe that Tom Clancy's voice controls will be anywhere near as slick and forgiving as the below Tom Clancy's trailer…

E3: The Trailers – Singularity

My hands can now write 'E3: The Trailers' before my brain sends a signal for them to do so. This scares me. I'm going to have to write something really long and self-indulgent next week to compensate for all these blinkin' videos. Singularity: the other new game from Raven, and the first time in a near-decade they're not hooking an FPS onto someone else's license.…

E3: The Trailers – Call of Duty 5

As there's doubtless a legion of Nazi-jaded folk queuing up to loudly lament COD's return to WW2, now seems an opportune moment to observe that hey, some of you seem really angry this week. Is it pre-release tension about all these games? Are you okay? Do you need a hug? A biscuit, maybe? Please be happier. Please. COD: World At War, then. A taste of…
