Dead Space 2 Trailer Reveals Left 4 Dead Style Multiplayer Dismemberment

Dead Space was one of the surprise masterpieces of the decade, and the sequel has garnered quite a bit of hype. Dead Space 2 is set for release next January, and it will expand on the first game in a number of ways, from larger environments to a talking protagonist and - of course - multiplayer. Dead Space was a solitary experience; even Isaac Clark's allies only served to annoy him and then (spoilers!) get killed. How will multiplayer affect the overall experience? Well, the new trailer, after the jump, may provide a few hints. Now hit it or quit it. Read More

Weekly Round-Up: 3D Without the Glasses, Two Worlds 2, BioShock Infinite, and So Much More!

This week is full of exciting news, folks. Our own Jeff Grub produced an excellent video that explains just how Nintendo managed to produce 3D effects on the 3DS without the need for dorky glasses. It not only was a huge hit here on our site but was picked up by Kotaku, Joystiq, and pretty much every major blog out there. A big win for us, Jeff, and of course, our readers because that means we're creating the type of content that people across the net appreciate. You, obviously, know we always do, but it's nice to get that extra bit of recognition from the big fish in the pond, no?  Beyond Jeff's video, we have Mike Rougeau's awesome two-part interview with Jake DiGennaro on the upcoming RPG Two Worlds 2, we have reviews of Singularity, Red Dead Redemption's Legends and Killers DLC, and Madden NFL 11. And, of course, we have all the news that's worth covering this week in gaming. (There's this little thing called BioShock Infinite that looks pretty cool.) Hit the jump to catch up on this week's news in a heartbeat with our Weekly Round-Up! Read More

Singularity Review

Singularity Review

  Stories based on the premise of time travel often end up needlessly convoluted, and Singularity is no exception. That doesn't make the overall experience any less satisfying, though. Even those averse to paradoxical parambulations shouldn't let the plot stop them from picking this title up; the real meat is in the varied and polished gameplay. For a BioShock clone, Singularity has a ton of original ideas, and even those that are borrowed from other games are executed with finesse. After crash landing on an abandoned Soviet island, Captain Renko - the game's silent-but-deadly protagonist - is unwillingly transported back to 1955, at the height of the facility's experimental research into the newly discovered Element 99. Naturally, Renko screws up history, and when he's promptly hurled back to the future, he discovers that the entire world is now ruled by a communist chancellor. Hit the jump to continue reading.
