Bejeweled is a game that pretty much everyone has already played. If you haven’t, you live in a cave. Bejeweled 2 is now available on the PSN, but does it do enough new to make it worth downloading? Continue reading

Magic Ball is another PSN game by Creat Studios. I’ve played alot of PSN games since I’ve gotten my Ps3 and some have been great and others have been pretty crappy as much as I hate to say it. Which category does Magic Ball fall in? Hit the jump to find out. Continue reading

[By Ryan]

Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom is a hard game to review. For one thing, it’s a game that many people enjoy. On the other end, its a game played with tiles. Not a Playstation 3 Controller. The main issue this game had to overcome in my eyes at least was to get it to work well with analog sticks. Did it work? Is this game worth your 10$? Hit the jump to find out. Continue reading

Ubisoft has confirmed that the sequel to Assassins Creed, Assassins Creed II (2), is official. It is guaranteed to be in our hands by the short time of….March 2010. Yeah it seems really far away for those who were fans of the game, but personally it should give them time to fix the errors made with the first game (exciting combat?). Anyway, best hopes for the game, the first was pretty cool for a new IP.

It’s official. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has been announced, and were loving every bit of it. The original Uncharted: Drakes Fortune was one of the games that helped the Playstation 3 really come into it’s own as a worthy household system, and we can expect great things out of this sequel. Naughty Dog knows what they’re doing, so I have absolute faith that this game will be another hit. If you want proof that the game has been announced, check the teaser after the jump. And also, obviously, there is no set release date. Continue reading

Japan is getting Resident Evil 5 on March 5. Nice news to hear for the Japanese, but thats the tip of the iceberg for what else is coming their way. Japan will also get its own Limited Edition of the game, and this thing is serious. It will include (along with the game):

  • A 2GB USB drive modeled after the TRICELL vaccine as seen in Resident Evil 5
  • A 32-page hardcover art book
  • A BSAA carrying pack, as worn by Chris Redfield
  • And as you expected, it isn’t cheap. The Japanese will be paying ¥12,800 (about $134 or 103.967 EUR). But if your a hardcore Resident Evil fan and…speak Japanese, you could pick it up. It looks like a quality collection of memorabilia.

    A new patch for Hot Shots Golf: Out Of Bounds gives you the ability to talk to your opponents. It’s game innovation like we’ve never seen before! That was a joke, but it’s a nice and much needed addition to the game. There was also more costumes for characters in the game added. Hey, it’s new content, always a good thing. Check out the 7 new screenshots that show you the costumes.

    Criterion is giving us more DLC for Burnout Paradise in 2009. Shocking. This time it’s “Toy Cars”. Of the nine cars that are being released in this pack, we know of five of them. So far there is the Hunter Manhatten, Hunter Takedown 4×4, Carson GT, Concept P12 and the Kreiger Racing WTR. I am not sure if all of those five are pictured above, but the picture gives you a hint of what they mean by toy cars. I guess any DLC that Criterion puts out is good DLC, so keep your eyes peeled for this in 2009 to build your ever growing collection of whips on Burnout Paradise.



    Get yourself a new axe for Guitar Hero/Rock Band: Literally!

    [By Ryan]

    Now we’ve seen a lot of third party guitar periphrals, and most of them just don’t really seem worth spending your money on. Then this beast of a controller comes along. The Gene Simmons Axe Guitar is a new guitar periphral by Kobian USA and is probably the most bad ass looking guitar on the market. Now I myself am not really a KISS fan, but I think I can look past the goofy sticker of his face near the strum bar for such a cool looking guitar. This Playstation 2/Playstation 3 exclusive guitar will work with both Guitar Hero and Rock Band. It can be pre-ordered right now on Amazon.com and will cost 79.99 USD (about 63.71 EUR). The peripheral is set to be released on November 15th. If you want to order your Gene Simmons Axe guitar, click here.

    I’ve recently downloaded and played the Mirror’s Edge demo. When I first saw this game I was skeptical about the how the controls would work, and if this was just another gimmick to sell a game. Hit the jump to see how this demo has changed my mind. Also, this is just a demo play-through, so come back soon for Anthony’s full hands-on with the game from his visit to i35. Continue reading
