There were some exciting news from Nintendo today, like Sega developing an exclusive Sonic game for Wii U. That has been countered by a recent Kotaku report that EA will be abandoning the Nintendo console.

Can you hear that? That’s the sound of rejoicing and clapping from used games buyers and used game stores like GameStop. EA will be stopping its online pass program for future EA video games.
The very unpopular program started in 2010 to prevent second-hand sales of video games. This was the year More >
Disney recently teamed up with EA to help produce more Star Wars games after Disney closed down LucasArts. One of the studios under EA already has experience with Star Wars games. BioWare worked on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, which is one of my all-time favorite games. Other studios More >
When Disney bought out Lucasfilm, one of the things on their to do list was to abandon LucasArts. Gamers and Star Wars fans worldwide were disappointed, because they were afraid that there weren’t going to be any more Star Wars games in the foreseeable future. Star Wars 1313 was a highly More >
EA was recently voted by Consumerist readers as The Worst Company in America for the second year in a row. In the 9 years that Consumerist has been running this competition, this is the first time that a company has won twice, beating out such giants for the position as Bank of America, Walmart, More >
So in an effort to keep customers (and possibly bring back a lot of them that left), Origin is pulling a Steam sale cleverly disguised as a “Player Appreciation Sale” today with literally a couple hundred games marked down by a huge margin. Their catalog can be found at the Origin Store.
Here’s a More >
I feel bad for the Customer Support team over at Origin and Amazon right now having to deal with all the ongoing problems with SimCity. It should have been a simple and easy process of fans purchasing the game and playing to their heart’s content, which is what a publisher’s goal should always be More >
Remember last year when Diablo 3 came out and “Error 37″ became one of the worst things to come out of a game’s launch? Well looks like SimCity 2013 might’ve just beaten it.
Over the last week we’ve seen one of the worst launches made from a game that had a much devoted fan base (and I write had, More >
Is anybody really a fan of microtransactions in video games? No really, I want to know, since EA Games CFO Blake Jorgensen is saying that gamers are enjoying this new business model. Really? I think it’s the fact that we’re not really annoyed by it…yet. We’ll see how it all goes down, since EA has More >
We recently received a new art book from Titan Books that explores the perverse horrific world of Dead Space. “The Art of Dead Space” gives an in-depth look at the art behind one of the most successful survival horror franchises in recent history. From the creation of Isaac Clarke to the More >
One game in 2013 that I am really looking forward to in 2013 is Dead Space 3, a game that combines horror, suspense, and action. It’s the perfect game to play in those dark nights when you want to feel trapped in space.
Right before Christmas a special event was held. If you followed the Dead Space More >
Medal of Honor Warfighter was just released to much fanfare, and I know I’ll be picking it up. There’s been many CG trailers for the game but no live-action, which is something many games nowadays are doing for advertising. A group of guys in Finland took it upon themselves to create a really cool More >
How’s that for a title?! Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning said “F**k you very much” to EA when the company wanted to acquire his studio, Oddworld Inhabitants. Now that he’s back to making games, he’s getting to do what he wanted to do all along, which is making games for fans.
“Our agreement is, you More >
Zynga has been copying games from smaller developers and creating their own versions of it. One developer, Nimblebit, wasn’t too pleased. They released a sarcastic image dedicated to Zynga (which you can see below) when Zynga took “inspiration” from their Tiny Tower game and created Dream More >
Thanks to the addition of a co-op mode, many of the heavily invested Dead Space fans have been worried that Dead Space 3 was going too far into action territory. Visceral Games has been trying to appease fans, telling them that the core of the series is still there. They also briefly said a few More >
Electronic Arts along with GamesRadar will be airing their Game Developers Con 2012 press conference live tomorrow on August 14, 2012, at 7AM PDT. DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson revealed already that Battlefield 4 will be set in “modern times”. BF4 was announced last month, but with More >
How many endings are we up to now? This will be the second revision, which brings the total count up to 3 versions. Take your time, Bioware; I’ll just be kicking back on the lawn chair, sipping my lemonade until this whole thing, which is starting to resemble a debacle, gets sorted out. So far More >
When the Reapers were revealed in Mass Effect, I was blown away. The mystery behind this race of sentient AI drove the story straight to the top of the video game heap as far as I’m concerned. Bioware is now prepared to reveal the origins of the reapers, and most notably the fabled “Leviathan” More >
Dead Space is a series that started off fairly well. It wasn’t a good enough start for EA, but the series has been picking up steam. Now with the inclusion of a co-op mode, and Visceral Games’ claims that Dead Space 3 will retain all of the original elements that fans love, it’ll be interesting to More >
Steven Spielberg’s Dreamworks Studios has just purchased the movie rights for EA’s Need for Speed franchise. I don’t know about you, but I thought Need for Speed was already in movie form, but just called Fast and the Furious? Production has already been scheduled to start in 2013 with the More >
In the eyes of many, the Dead Space series has taken the survival horror crown away from Resident Evil. Dead Space 2 turned a bit more towards the action, increasing the unease of fans who want Dead Space to remain solely focused on horror. At E3 2012, Dead Space 3′s new cooperative mode was More >
Back in 2010, EA rebooted one of the most prolific racing franchises the gaming industry had ever seen, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. They even entrusted that franchise to Burnout creator’s Criterion. It was one of the best arcade racing games that I had ever played. I know when Criterion made the More >
Not much has been said about the singleplayer aspect of this game, but I bet most fans aren’t too concerned with that. In this newly released trailer, we get to delve in a little bit with the multiplayer for the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The previous Medal of Honor game had a fairly More >
Why do I get the feeling that fans of the Dead Space series are going to get a little upset over seeing these screenshots? Oh, right, co-op; though word on the net is that the co-op mode will feature an extra character, and those going solo will actually be going solo (no ai partner, thank the More >
