Feature: Lovely at this time of year

Hands On: Dead Island

Oftentimes with games, what you want is to gain knowledge from scratch. There's a title, a genre, and what we need is to build information upon that. With Dead Island it often feels like things are working in the opposite direction, thanks to that trailer. Everyone invented their own version of the game, and the reality can often feel like the result of chipping away…

Hands On: Serious Sam 3

One of the most refreshing moments of this year’s E3 was a trip out of the noisy, smelly Convention Center to a nearby hotel, to sit down and play Serious Sam 3. Refreshing to be away from the noise, but also to just be sat playing a game (on PC, no less) that’s so focused on being a game.

E3 2011 Booth Babe Babes Bonanza!

This year's E3 was packed with booth babe babes, making our time at the Los Angeles Convention Center one filled with titillation and excitement. We've collected together a gallery of the sexiest booth babe babes we saw as we made our way around, so you too can enjoy their camera-wielding hotness. Enjoy!

Mechin’ Bacon: Fresh Hawken Footage

Via our exuberant American chums at G4, come some E3 leftovers in the form of Hawken footage, which I've cleverly reblogged below. Once again it's looking seriously impressive, this time showing off a "Siege" game mode, where players have to gather resources to launch battleships against opposing bases. Only the battleships can destroy the enemy base, but they themselves are vulnerable to attack, too. The…

Feature: Bionic Interview

Square Enix Talk Deus Ex: Human Revolution

During E3 I sat down with Deus Ex: Human Revolution's director, Jean-François Dugas, and lead writer, Mary DeMarle. With the game nearly complete we talked about the experience of creating a game in such a renowned series, the transhumanist literary inspirations for its tone and design, and how characters nearly had deer legs. We explore the process behind how you can maintain multiple paths, whether…

E3 2011 First Look: Tomb Raider

The game I was most interested to see this year was Tomb Raider. Of everything on show, this was the one I was most intrigued by, based on Crystal Dynamics' stellar record with the license so far, and the dark, gloomy tone that's promised. Potential levels high. Which means I feel strange coming away from the demo a lot more concerned. Mostly by quick time…

Almost Complete: E3 PC At A Glance

Don't look directly at it! Just a glance, that's all you can take. Eugh. John looks at Skyrim / Skyrim footage of many minutes. Battlefield Hands-On / That Awesome Tank Battle. Bioshock Infinite unfurls its footage for us. Pretty! Batman's open world looks seriously impressive. Brothers In Arms Goes Beserk with Furious 4 / Screenshots of said madness. Carrier Command is being remade by Bohemia.…

Amy Looks Beautiful, Tender, Grim

IGN are reporting that Amy, Vector Cell's game that had previously only been confirmed for PSN, has now been spotted on the radar of other formats, including Steam. It's a game about a zombie contagion and Amy, a little girl who is resistant to it. You play a woman intent on rescuing the titular zombie survivor, who must lead the little girl through dangerous environments.…

Alienated: Some New Xcom E3 Screens

Xcom, then. Irrational's upcoming re-imagining of a strategy classic, transplanting all those government men and sinister aliens into a tactical FPS. Will it be any good? We couldn't say. Alec broke our crystal ball years ago because he thought it was a trackball. Maybe you can help? We had a trailer earlier in the week, and now we have some new screens you'll find after…

Driver: San Francisco Has An E3 Trailer Too

There hasn't been a decent Driver game since the original, twelve years ago. We know this. At this point a game breaking that curse would be like an oak tree sprouting from an active landfill, but maybe, MAYBE Driver: San Francisco will manage it anyway. Alec was pleasantly surprised during his hands on, and the new 'Shift' mechanic that lets you jump between cars like…

E3 2011 First Look: Skyrim

The largest issue with reporting on what Skyrim is like is I've only watched someone else play it. While that's the norm for the vast majority of what's shown behind closed doors at E3, in this particular case - a vast, elaborate game with an enormous non-linear world - watching someone else play it is a bit like being on one of those kids' cars…

Feature: More games than you can look at (which is three)

E3 2011 Preview Round-Up #1

Will there be a #2? I've no idea. But for now here's a collection of some games I saw at E3 2011 and the accompanying thoughts. Below you can find The Old Republic, Telltale's latest crop, and Codies' F1 2011.

BIA Furious 4: First Screenshots

I've posted a gallery of screenshots from the recently-announced Brothers In Arms Furious 4, below. I suspect you might want to take a look after the surprising CG announcement trailer from earlier in the week. The gallery shows chainsaws, blood, jetpacks, lightning powers, mohawks, and blood. All this images can be clicked for full size.

PayDay: The Heist Is A Game About Robbery

How would you like to play Left 4 Dead, only instead of killing zombies you're killing a building robbing a building? Do you think that's something you'd enjoy? That's what download-only multiplayer FPS PayDay: The Heist is going to offer. This game's name surfaced about a week back, but now we have a debut trailer and footage of some people playing the game at E3.…

The Old Republic Intro Cinematic Revealed

Bioware have released the six minute intro cinematic that'll be featured in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Critics (alright, me) are describing the video as "long", and "a bit like it was written using a flow chart of scenes from previous Star Wars cinematics". Ah, look at me being negative in the face of lightsabers and smugglers and a pseudo-R2D2 in a budget Millenium Falcon…

Mass Effect 3: The Live Actioning

We seem to be doing this backwards. On Monday we kicked off E3 week with an action-packed in-engine trailer for Mass Effect 3 featuring such bravado-soaked one-liners as "We need a plan to stop them!" "WE FIGHT OR WE DIE. THAT'S THE PLAN." Captain Shepherd that's a terrible plan and you are a bad captain. Anyway, today we've got a live action trailer showing various…

Okay, What: Sybil Danning’s Ruger

This could well be the single weirdest E3 announcement. 1980s action-movie "star" Sybil Danning is making a "cloud-based" action shooter. It's called Ruger, and will be loosely based on the 1989 movie L.A. Bounty. The baffling press release states: "While it is still early in the development cycle, Ruger will be a highly stylized, almost comic book styled shooter. The story, written by Sybil is…

Blimey: Carrier Command, The E3 Trailer

Carrier Command is being remade by Bohemia Interactive. I know! I've even been playing it, and I'll be putting up a hands-on preview, as well as interview with BIS boss Marek Spanel, on Monday. In the meantime you can take a look at the trailer they've released for the E3 reveal of the game. It's an all-new engine, not the Arma 2 engine, as we'd…

E3 2011 First Look: Saints Row The Third

If Saints Row 1 was a GTA "tribute", and Saints Row 2 was Volition discovering how they wanted to approach the genre for themselves, then Saints Row: The Third is the complete rejection of anything that originally influenced it. It is the most anarchic, vile, hilarious and puerile approach anyone has taken to a sandbox game. It's the silliest and foulest game of E3. It's…
