preview | 05/26/05 | Chris Martin

game: E3 2005: Hands-on With Gears of War
preview | 05/24/05 | Aaron Stanton
One of the more polished games shown for the Xbox 360 at E3 2005, Gears of War is an over-the-shoulder shooter with a style reminiscent of Brute Force, only fun to play. While the world was wondering what the next generation titles would look like, screens from Gears of War have been on the Internet since E3 2004, when they were shown off under a different name for an Unreal 3 engine demonstration. Now we get to see more details about how the game plays as Aaron checks out the title behind closed doors.
game: E3 2005: Call of Cthulhu: Destiny's End
preview | 05/24/05 | Laurie Taylor
Few things can lay claim to influencing the horror genre over the years as strongly as Lovecraft's dark tales of the unknown. The malformed shapes of the enemies in games like Silent Hill owe a debt to those creatures that first made an appearance in the mind of H.P. Lovecraft. Now, a game is coming that's using Lovecraft as source material directly. Read our E3 preview of Call of Cthulhu for an inside look at what you'll want to be afraid of in the coming months.
game: E3 2005: Civilization IV
preview | 05/24/05 | Blaine Krumpe
There were some dissapointments down at E3 this year, what with lack of any real gameplay footage from a number of hyped games. Civilization 4, the hotly anticipated title from strategy master Civ Meier, fell into that category, sadly. Blaine was able to drudge up some info.
game: E3 2005: A Meeting with Stardock, an hour with Galactic Civilzations II: Dreadlords
preview | 05/23/05 | Chris Martin
Stardock let us take a first look at Galactic Civilization II: Dreadlords, the sequel to their bestselling 4x space strategy of the same name sans the postscript. We're happy to report that the project, though early, is coming along very nicely. Chris has the scoop.
game: E3 2005: Star Wars Battlefront II
preview | 05/23/05 | Blaine Krumpe
The original Star Wars: Battlefront allowed players to experience their favorite Star Wars locations from the eyelevel of the troops on the ground. Whether you played on the side of light or the side of dark didn't matter; you were sure to enjoy using the weapons of Star Wars to battle it out in a galaxy far, far away. LucasArts was kind enough to take us behind closed doors down at E3 2005 and show us the goodies of the next game in the franchise, cleverly named Star Wars: Battlefront II. What are they doing to make a great game better? How about some space battles? Read Blaine's preview for more details on what you can expect.
game: E3 2005: Ministry of Sound StikAx
preview | 05/22/05 | Shawn Rider
One of the best things at E3 wasn't even a game. "Wha?!?" you say, in your best Jon Stewart, "B-b-but E3 is about games?!?" True dat. So if we must justify it, let's put the Ministry of Sound StikAx in the category of "performative play." Using a unique hardware controller up to two people can collaborate to mix audio and video on the fly. It's a revolution for VJs and DJs, and it's real, real fun.
game: Dungeon Siege II
preview | 05/22/05 | Eric Bodrero
There haven't been many really great hack-and-slash titles since Diablo II left the stage a few years back. While the classic franchise exited in fairly good form, it left behind a void that's been taken on by any number of competent top-down dungeon crawlers. While a number of these attempts were solid, we're still waiting for the title that will help us forget just how good Diablo was. Dungeon Siege II attempts to improve everything it's carried over from the first game, and wipe Diablo from your memory. Eric sits down to lay out some of the details about how they intend to do that.
game: Age of Empires: The Age of Kings
preview | 05/21/05 | Blaine Krumpe
For all of its innovative design and touch screen, so far the DS has not really delivered the kind of different experiences that it has the potential for. Blaine identifies one great use of the touch screen that makes possible a thoroughly enjoying pocket form of Age of Empires: Age of Kings. AoK is a classic turn-based strategy game, and so far the direction this handheld version is taking might make it one of the first pocket strategy games to be as enjoyable as the PC version.
game: E3 2005: Okami
preview | 05/20/05 | Laurie Taylor
Capcom's Okami blends watercolor fluidity with a mythologized storyline to create a beautiful and immersive game. To get the full effect of the game's beauty, you have to see it in motion and actually try out the blend of action and painting, but you can get the next best thing in Laurie's preview.
game: E3 2005: Turtle Beach Surround Sound Headphones
preview | 05/19/05 | Shawn Rider
Turtle Beach has long been one of the premier audio hardware manufacturers for the PC, and this year they are unveiling their new line of surround-sound headphones, which seriously thump. These headbangers feature front, center, and rear channels, plus subwoofers with flappers. Oh yeah, we like. We like very much...
game: E3 2005: Prey Press Demonstration
preview | 05/19/05 | Chris Martin
3d Realms seems to have been under the radar for a while. Duke Nukem Forever might be just a pipe-dream, but let me assure you 3d Realms' new title "Prey" is very much a reality. One of the real jems on the E3 floor, it blew our freakin' socks off - way beyond what we've seen in sample videos before! Impressions and screens inside.
game: E3: Her Interactive and New Nancy Drew Games
preview | 05/19/05 | Laurie Taylor
