game: Too Human
preview | 07/18/08 | Chris Martin
This terribly cold, strenuous year has entered it's warming period. Twentysomethings venture to the park for volleyball or soccer. Some throw frisbees or discs, if you prefer the neutral term. Also, the demo for Too Human has hit Live Marketplace. We suggest you go download it and play it. It's a game with as much controversy as variety, as little tact as subtlety.
game: The Simpsons Game
review | 04/06/08 | Shawn Rider
The Simpsons are a perennial videogame topic. Many of the games created in the franchise are utterly forgettable. (Anyone up for a round of Simpsons Wrestling? Didn't think so...) But there have been a few well-done Simpsons games: Simpsons Hit and Run (a GTA clone) and The Simpsons Road Rage (a Crazy Taxi clone) were both enjoyable. The Simpsons Game isn't a direct rip-off of any particular game. It sticks to a platform/action approach and uses the whole world of videogames for its satirical fodder. The result is a Simpsons game that may be slightly less polished in terms of gameplay but is easily the game that feels most like a real Simpsons episode. Check out our review for more.
game: Lost: Via Domus
review | 03/22/08 | Shawn Rider
Never one to leave any stone unturned for clues about the next big revelation on Lost, our intrepid Editor in Chief, Shawn Rider, takes a look at Lost: Via Domus. It's a dirty job that nobody else wanted, and evidence that Shawn clearly has a problem. It's not a great game, but it is a solid six to eight hours of time spent with Lost. And sometimes that's all you need.

The other day we posted about BioShock's new DLC, stating new plasmids and the ability to turn off vita-chambers. There's more, don't worry. We've got the details on the new plasmids, as well as the answer to "what the hell does Horizontal FOV actually do?" While 2K ponders a sequel to BioShock, we can, at least, enjoy the bliss that is the first, again, if we so desire, we and our brass balls.

Undertow is what Xbox Live Arcade needs more of: a simple premise with perfect execution and excellent multiplayer through Live. Play with up to 16 players through Live or split-screen locally or System Link. Or just add bots. Capture the spawn-points to reduce the enemy's "tickets" or lives to zero. An absolutely simple, stunning game with deep combat and strategy, Undertow is a testament to the greatness developers can achieve in such a small package.
game: Kane and Lynch
news | 11/30/07 | Chris Martin
If this is true, Gamespot will be allegedly losing one of it's finest reviewers
over a critically mediocre game
, Kane and Lynch: Dead Men.
Primotech stated yesterday that Jeff Gerstmann, 10 year veteran on Gamespot.com, has been fired.
According to a fellow Gamespot contributor and close friend of Gerstmann who wished to remain anonymous, the editor was fired Wednesday morning because of his negative review of the game, which he awarded a 6.0. Comparably speaking, Metacritic lists Kane and Lynch as currently having a 68% average from critics.
Although Primotech admits there might be other reasons for Gerstmann's leave, but as of now there have been no announcements by Gerstmann.
game: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
review | 11/21/07 | George Holomshek
Harmonix may have moved on to Rock Band, but the Guitar Hero franchise still goes strong. The third Guitar Hero features online play, a great song list, and the best fake guitar money can buy. But did Tony Hawk developer Neversoft shred this one up too much? Do a few glaring issues keep this hero from saving the day?
news | 11/19/07 | Monica Hafer
E For All made its debut last month, attempting to be the more democratic, "everyman's" convention in the videogame industry. While its stature was smaller than E3 had been in the past, it certainly had a heck of a lot of heart. Monica was our eyes and ears on the scene of what might be the herald of a new focus in the world of game marketing and development.
game: Forza Motorsport 2
news | 10/27/07 | Chris Martin
Fans have been pressuring Turn 10 for this for a long time: new DLC Track Pack. "Twin Ring" Motegi is the first downloadable track to be featured in Forza Motorsport 2. And actually, it's the best download for Forza 2 yet. Because of the unique design of the Twin Rings we get not one, but four different tracks. Details inside. The pack is 400 Microsoft Points.
game: Project Gotham Racing 4
review | 10/24/07 | Chris Martin
Fans of racing games take note: Project Gotham Racing 4 is a dream come true--lots of exotic cars, tons of tracks, weather effects, Bulldog Mode, and a rock-solid career mode to boot. Oh yeah, and motorcycles. PGR4 might be working a gamer niche that is already supersaturated by the likes of Forza, PGR3, and Burnout. But it still manages, despite it's competition, to be a furiously enjoyable racer with more variety than it perhaps knows what to do with.
game: Halo 3
review | 10/08/07 | Chris Martin
You've been watching The Ticker, you've seen the reviews, you've been playing the game. Halo 3 has had a phenomenal launch, selling over 2 million copies in the first night of release. We've taken the good Master Chief into the heart of the ark, killed hundreds of thousands of Covenant, and rescued Cortana from the clutches of the Gravemind. Now here's our review of the most anticipated videogame of 2007. Is Halo 3 still the reason to own an Xbox 360?

feature | 09/23/07 | Chris Martin

Gamesfirst has the links to all the Halo 3 reviews, as well as overall thoughts from sites all over the interweb. Our own review is forthcoming (as we have to wait for the release) but in case you're curious about what everybody else is saying, this article is for you.
Come back to this article to see updated reviews as the week, and the Halo 3 playing, continues.
news | 09/22/07 | Chris Martin
The second downloadable pack for Forza Motorsport 2 has jsut been released, for 400 Microsoft Points. This pack is substantially meatier than the last one, including various cars from seven different manufacturers. A few Civics, two Lambos, and even a Saturn come our way this week. But for all you Le Mans fans, the gorgeous 2006 Audi R10 (#8 Audi Sport Team Joest) Prototype will be enough to entice you.
game: Gears of War
editorial | 09/20/07 | Chris Martin
Gears of War is considered one of the best shooters on the Xbox 360, scratch that, one of the best shooters period. But But Epic's gruesome stop-and-popper is still second best on Xbox Live losing to a last generation Halo 2. It's a great game, sure, but it has problems. Serious problems. Find out why Chris would be so quick to toss GoW to the wind, perhaps you sympathize.
game: Sega Rally Revo
news | 09/17/07 | Chris Martin
So, in case you missed it
, I'm pretty stoked about SEGA Rally Revo for Xbox 360. Some early reviews are in: IGN UK gave it 8.8/10
and EuroGamer gave it a 9/10
. Knowing this makes me ache for it more. If you're thinking about picking up SEGA Rally Revo, it's officially out today (09/17/07) in the UK--those in the US will have to wait until October 9th. And if you just want to check it out first, the Demo has just hit Xbox Live. At over half a gig, it's one of the smaller demos out there, but we'll let the gameplay speak for itself.
