Attention all Yakuza series fans: the Yakuza 3 demo just launched in Japan last night. I was able to get my hands on the demo at a friend’s house, and let me tell you, it looks incredible. I had never played a Yakuza title before, so I was really excited to finally play this critically acclaimed series. The visuals were on par with any current-gen PS3 title, but was the gameplay fulfilling? Read on to find out. Read more… »

In the 80s, games really didn’t offer a whole lot to look at.  There were few colors and the level designs were pretty dull.  These games didn’t provide much of an immerse experience, especially if you consider the god-awful displays they were viewed on (20″ cedar tv anyone?) Read more… »

Shoot ‘em up games started innocently enough. Spacewar shot it’s way onto PCs back in the 1960s, and after Space Invaders was released, the rest was history. Galaga and Galaxian would go on to further popularize the genre, and R-Type and Gradius would modernize it.

Most people won’t believe it, but Shoot ‘em ups started as casual games. I mean, who hasn’t played Galaga?! That wouldn’t last long, however, because once Eastern game studios got their hands on the genre, they changed it forever. Shoot ‘em ups were no longer heaven; they were absolute hell.

What would you do if your childhood video game hero was in trouble?  Imagine him in the middle of a dark room, bound and gagged in a chair with an interrogation light beaming down on him.  His arch nemesis stands behind him with a can of gasoline, a Bic disposable razor, and a package of uninflated balloons, ready to do god-knows-what.  The end seems inevitable at this point, but is it too late?

A question everyone asks themselves when faced with another ‘classic compilation’ is ”Why should anyone buy a collection of games that were released on vastly inferior systems with dated graphics and simple gameplay when we have multimillion-dollar franchises and Hollywood actors featuring in open-ended games of intricate story-lines and complex characters?” Read more… »

Our new “Mash Up” feature showcases one retro and one modern game fighting for the crown. The first competition category is “beat ‘em ups”: hit the jump for a look at both games, and instructions on how to vote! Read more… »

Robert Foster’s a complicated man. Brought up by indigenous Australians in “the Gap”, a barren wasteland much like Fallout 3′s post-nuclear Washington, after surviving a plane crash as a child, Foster seems like a mish-mash of Rick Deckard and Mad Max with some extra dry humour and a hot-tempered robot side-kick. Still, you’d think he’d take being kidnapped by stormtroopers who then murder his adopted family a little bit harder than he does.

The topic of this article has plagued my mind for some time, it has been something I have wanted to discuss for a while now, but before I proceed, I would like to make a few things clear. I have been a gamer for a little over thirteen years now, and of those thirteen years, I have been a great fan of Nintendo and its gaming consoles and titles. Read more… »

F.E.A.R. 2 : Project Origin is the sequel to the highly acclaimed PC title (and the distinguishably less acclaimed console ports) F.E.A.R. Project Origin is supposed to be a refinement of the original, and bring gamers more excellent gunplay and more eerie scares.

The First Hour is meant to be a comparison guide to your own experiences with the game. Feel free to comment or let us know how your time with the game compares with ours.

All things said, lets see how the first hour goes:
