review | 12/10/05 | George Holomshek
Activision's Call of Duty series has been a big hit, so it's only natural that fans are excited about Call of Duty 2: The Big Red One. Exploring the campaigns of Russia, Central Europe and North Africa, Call of Duty 2 offers a cinematic FPS experience that is intense and gritty. Smoke and dirt and explosive action makes the visuals as beautiful as they are terrifying. George has battled through COD2: The Big Red One on the current-gen consoles, and has brought back this report from the front.

review | 11/29/05 | Amanda Bateman
Fight the metal demons, commune with Guardians, discover secret treasure, and restore Filgaia to it's original splendor! What, you've already done that, you say? Well, how about another round? Wild ARMs has been cleaned up, reworked, and enhanced from scratch to create Agetec's latest RPG, Wild ARMs Alter Code: F. It's a big improvement, but is it enough to grab your interest? Amanda has the verdict right here.
review | 11/26/05 | Shawn Rider
Neversoft's latest offering diverges greatly from their history with the Tony Hawk franchise. Gun is a wild western that puts you in the role of Colton White as he hunts for the man who murdered his father. This is a gritty action game with plenty of awesome shootouts and gorey mutilations, and it's definitely something that anyone who loves Unforgiven or Deadwood ought to check out. But can Gun win over gamers to become the baddest disc your box has ever slotted? Shawn takes it for a ride and lets you know in his commplete review.
game: Crash Tag Team Racing
review | 11/17/05 | Matt James
Crash Tag Team Racing comes a year after the old Double-Dash did in the venerable Mario Kart on Gamecube and double-dashed the hopes of many a fan. But don't be fooled by the immediate resemblance here: Crash Tag Team Racing might look like a Double-Dash rip-off, but in reality it has much more to offer. Combining a quality Crash platformer with zany, fast-paced racing action, Crash Tag Team Racing is unlike any other game we've played. Still not convinced? OK, then, two words: Ninja Penguins. 'Nuff said. Check Matt's review here.
game: Tony Hawk's American Wasteland
review | 11/16/05 | Jeremy Kauffman
Tony Hawk's American Wasteland marks the third incarnation of the immensely popular series. Is it a worthy successor to THPS and THUG? Well, do BMX bikes and the French sport of freestyle walking, aka Le Parkour, turn you on? They should. And does a seamless recreation of Los Angeles help? It might. And what about online multiplayer for Xbox owners? It's about time. Veteran skate punk, Jeremy, put thumb to controller to give you this review.
game: Magna Carta: Tears of Blood
review | 11/15/05 | Amanda Bateman
No, we're not talking about a legal document limiting the power of English monarchs in the year of 1215 (But, if you can make a fun videogame about that, we'd love to see it!). Atlus and Softmax's Magna Carta: Tears of Blood is a new roleplaying game for the PS2 that has made its way from Korea to Japan, and is now on its way to make a new niche in the United States. Unlike the real Magna Carta, this game is no guarantee of increased rights for the aristocracy, but it's still OK with us. Get Amanda's take on it right here.
game: Resident Evil 4
review | 11/13/05 | Laurie Taylor
Resident Evil 4 is a massive lurch forwards for the quintessential survival horror franchise. A completely new control scheme makes RE4 a much more agile, fast-paced game experience, and the storyline is a refreshing departure from the old "take out the secret Umbrella experiment" rigmarole we've gotten used to. This isn't your mother's Resident Evil game. Making its debut on the PlayStation 2 after a huge success on the Gamecube, RE4 is finding a whole new audience. Our woman Laurie gets down to business with Capcom's venerable old franchise, and she likes what she finds.

game: Shadow of the Colossus
review | 11/10/05 | Shawn Rider
Sony's Shadow of the Colossus is the latest offering from the team behind cult hit, ICO. Colossus has been making waves among gamers because of its completely unique game design: Basically, the game is comprised of 16 of the most massive boss battles ever. But it's also one of the most incredibly beautiful games ever created, and it features an amazing narrative that pushes the boundaries of what we've seen in game stories so far. Any gamer worth her salt MUST play this one.
podcast | 11/04/05 | Val Townsend

game: Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
news | 11/03/05 | Shawn Rider
One of the titles we're most excited about this Fall is Peter Jackson's King Kong, the game based on the movie. The combination of Peter Jackson's visual storytelling and Michel Ancel, Ubisoft's resident super game designer, is a potentially dynamic duo that has so far demonstrated an incredible game in the making. Now, Ubisoft sends word that they will host public preview events for the game in New York City and Los Angeles, the week before the game hits stores for pretty much every platform on the planet. The preview events will be major affairs, featuring a full mock-up of Skull Island and 11 kiosks where gamers can experience King Kong, the game, in full big-screen, HD glory on Xbox 360. Get the dates here.
game: Playstation 3
news | 11/03/05 | George Holomshek
Sony recently confirmed to Playstation Magazine that they will utilize a non-centralized system for online multiplayer on the PS3, sticking with their departure from Microsoft's Xbox Live or Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connection services. Sticking with an online gaming strategy similar to how the PS2 currently handles online gaming means that game publishers have much greater flexibility with their online content. It also means that gamers will need different accounts for each game they play online, and also makes it more difficult for developers to insure an even playing ground in online multiplayer.
game: Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2
review | 11/01/05 | Amanda Bateman
Atlus serves up another hot helping of demon-eating anime goodness in Digital Devil Saga 2, the final chapter of their dark sci-fi RPG adventure. With additions including mini-games, stronger spells and attacks, new characters, and other secrets, you'd think it'd be hard for them to mess this one up. But don't go 'berserk' on it just yet; get the scoop here before sinking your fangs into this RPG.
game: Shadow of the Colossus
news | 10/26/05 | Shawn Rider
Why are we always such suckers for this viral marketing stuff? Sony (or somebody working for Sony) has created an utterly believable Typepad blog called Giantology, which features images and videos shot by "scientists" and "enthusiasts" all over the world. What is in said images and videos? Just some fossilized and otherwise dessicated remains of things that look an awful lot like the Colossi from Sony's recent release, Shadow of the Colossus. There's some fun stuff on the site, so check it out.
