Tomb Raider Video Trailer

Square Enix logo

Tomb Raider was one of our favorite games at E3 2011, and even now one month out our Editor still talks about it with pseudo reverence. Even if you've not experienced the Tomb Raider games before or have grown tired of the franchise, what Square Enix is doing to the franchise is a complete reboot, and as cliche as it is to say this, Lara's next outing is intense, gritty and definitely not your mama's Tomb Raider. If you've not yet seen it, or if you want to re-live the video once again, we've included below the E3 trailer video for Tomb … [Read more...]

Saints Row The Third Video Trailer

New THQ logo

Saints Row The Third made a whole lot of noise at E3 2011, not the least of which was a bikini car wash outside the LA Convention Center we hinted would likely happen in the days leading up to the show. But outside of the hype, Saints Row The Third managed to stir up some comments about being some attendees' "guilty pleasure of the show" for its open-ended gameplay and the freedom it gave to let players be total a-holes if they so desired. The official Saints Row The Third trailer was hard to track down during the show, but we've managed to … [Read more...]

Kinect Disneyland Adventures Video Trailer

One of the biggest "family friendly" surprises of E3 2011 was the unveiling of Kinect Disneyland Adventures, a Xbox 360-exclusive title that lets kids (of all ages) walk through a fully realized digital version of Disneyland while interacting with characters and the environment. Using nothing but the Xbox Kinect, players can meander down Main Street USA, frolic through Frontierland or tiptoe through Tomorrowland to see -- and then play mini-games inspired by -- their favorite Disneyland attractions. Our Executive Editor has been to the … [Read more...]

Fable: The Journey E3 Trailer

Fable thumbnail

We've been fans of the Fable series since Peter Molyneux first debuted the franchise, and we've covered them quite a bit in our Fable 2 Demon Doors and Fable 3 Demon Doors walkthroughs. The next chapter in the series, Fable: The Journey, marks a serious departure for the game, largely because of its use of the Xbox Kinect. By using the Kinect's motion controls, Fable: The Journey at this point is a largely on-rails experience -- as were many Kinect games at E3, to be honest. The gameplay demo we saw at E3 showed the hero casting spells using … [Read more...]

Video: E3 2011 Door Opening (Crowd View)

E3 logo

The madness of E3 2011 was subdued somewhat from years past, but there were still about 45,000 people in attendance, which made for quite a rush when the doors first opened at the LA Convention Center. We thought you might want to experience that scene first-hand through this video we shot when the crowd was let into E3. This video shows the doors opening, the crowd behind us, and our quick stroll through EA's booth, past the Xbox 360 and Ubisoft booths and into Activision's unique theater-like setup for E3 2011. Activision was our first … [Read more...]

Nyko Brings Zoom for Kinect, Enables Up-Close Gameplay

Xbox Kinect thumbnail

Ever since the release for the Xbox Kinect, a similar problem has been an issue to most people who plan on owning this Xbox 360 add-on: gameplay space. The amount of actual space needed to use the Xbox Kinect is great when you have the amount to use, but it can be very unrealistic to many people. At least six feet is needed to start playing a Kinect game, which may require you to move some furniture around. If you plan to play with another person, an additional two feet is required, making this minimum space requirement cap up to eight … [Read more...]

Although we've not gotten our hands on Ubisoft's Wii U games so far … [Read more...]
