I've been playing Crysis 2 for a week and a half or so and I've got a pretty decent crack at the campaign and the multiplayer, and I've got to say it's a definite breath of fresh air from these endless sequels that seem to trap us every couple of years. Now Crysis is itself a equal but it is new to most console gamers and most of the PC community due to it's almost legendary system requirements. (more...)

Good news for PS3 owners who fondly remember or recall the 2003 cult classic adventure game Beyond Good & Evil. Not to be outdone by Microsoft, Sony has announced that the Playstation 3 will get an HD treatment of the game giving PS3 owners what Sony calls "...the best version of Beyond Good & Evil yet." featuring improved visuals and sound. Specifics on the exact release date are mum, but Sony expects the title to be available on the Playstation Store this May.

For the uninitiated, Beyond Good & Evil was developed and released by Ubisoft  back in 2003 on the PC, Playstation 2, Gamecube, and Xbox. The title was highly regarded by critics and gamers alike garnering a metacritic score of 87%.  Despite the high praise and cult like following, Beyond Good & Evil did not sell well leaving it to be labeled a commercial disappointment much to the chagrine of the game's fans.

BNG Reviews: The Novint Falcon

Take a moment and ask yourself how much money you've really spent on PC gaming peripherals. Sans a high quality keyboard and mouse you probably didn't come up with a substantial amount, and for good reason. Gaming gadgets are a mixed bag. For every one product that delivers anything worthwhile there is a counter collective of misguided ideas and plastic doo-hickeys that fail to bring anything to the table. As a result 'innovative' gaming gadgets tend to go unnoticed, which in turn robs the noteworthy peripherals of their time in the limelight. Case in point, the Novint Falcon, a hap-tics based 3D touch game controller from Novint Technologies. There is one goal behind the Falcon. Allow players to interact with the virtual world in a way they have never before. Does the Falcon succeed or is this another gadget out of touch with its ambitions?


Crysis 2 Intro Theme Composed by Hans Zimmer of “The Dark Knight”, “Inception” Fame

Great games often have great music and you could easily make the case that Hans Zimmer, the man behind the driving scores heard in some major Hollywood blockbusters including The Dark Knight and Inception, is a solid choice to pump up a game's musical score. That's exactly what's happening with Crysis 2. While most of Crysis 2's sound track was scored by Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu, Hans Zimmer was brought in by EA to add a finishing touch to the game's acoustics. And, like the good publisher they are, they felt the need to trumpet this fact to the masses at the near-eve of Crysis 2's launch along with a sample bit that can be heard through the link provided below.

Crysis 2 will be hitting the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC this March 22nd.

Play the You Don’t Know Jack Demo on Xbox Live

Good news for trivia buffs who might be on the fence about Jellyvision's recently released You Don't Know Jack. Xbox owners can now get their feet wet with a demo for the game from the Xbox Live marketplace. You Don't Know Jack is best played with four players who have a deep seated desire to wreck up each other's day, though if friends are hard to come by you can take on the game's AI which may convincingly feign ignorance and maybe let you win, despite the fact it has all the answers. It's best not to think about that though. It might make you sad.
