Star Wars The Old Republic: Hope Trailer

MMMMM… It’s E3 week and that means all of this year’s hotly anticipated games are being pimped across the internets like a $5 hooker fresh from the free clinic. Not to be out done by lesser titles there’s a spiffy new cinematic trailer for Bioware’s upcoming MMORPG, Star War The Old Republic. Produced by Blur Studio, the same company that developed the Dragon Age: Sacred Ashes trailer, this trailer depicts an epic forest battle between Republic Forces and the Sith… Continue »

Mass Effect 2 Extended Cinematic Trailer

Oh Bioware, what a generous Christmas gift you have given us, a beautifully rendered cinema quality trailer for Mass Effect 2. Much like the Sacred Ashes trailer for Dragon Age: Origins, the extended Blur trailer looks spectacular. There’s a bit of intrigue here by way of The Illusive Man and plenty of action, more than you’d expect to find in a 3 minute clip. I know, I sound like a broken record here, but damn, this quality of 3D animation… Continue »

Army of Two Mask Customization

EA has recently unveiled a new component to their upcoming title Army of Two: The 40th Day, the ability to customize your in-game character’s mask. And according to the video from the fine folks over at Gamespot, players can use the online Mask & Armor Creator to smear rainbow sprinkled clown-poo all over their face. Actually, I tried the Mask & Armor Creator out for myself, and despite what the video shows, you can in fact create some pretty bad-ass… Continue »

Dragon Age: Origins—Initial Impressions

Alright, Bioware’s Dragon Age: Origins (DA:O) has been out for a couple of weeks now. The reviews are in (87/7.2 on MetaCritic) and the bulk of the gaming industry has since moved on, leaving DA:O in the dust like so many prom queens. There is probably no real point in yet another review, but technically that’s not what this is. There’s no way I can give it a fair shake in the limited amount of time that I’ve had to… Continue »

Nine Minutes of Mass Effect 2

It’s not a trailer, it’s not a v-doc, what it is is a chunk of actual gameplay footage, nine minute worth to be exact. Granted, this content has been edited for length because if you’ve ever played Mass Effect you know that it’s next to impossible to have two meaningful conversations, and a massive firefight in under 30 minutes realtime. Even so, I like what I’m seeing, especially the enhanced party tactic controls. Now if you happened to be disappointed… Continue »

Halo ODST Commercial

The latest live action commercial for Bungie’s upcoming Halo: ODST looks pretty good, but it’s sure no Landfall, the short film/long commercial directed by Neil Blomkamp to promote the then upcoming Halo 3 back in 2007. I suppose the one thing that disappointed me is that fact that they didn’t get Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, or Adam Baldwin—who all give voice to the protagonist’s team mates—to do cameos in this thing. If you’re interested, you can pick up Halo: ODST… Continue »
