God of War 3 isn’t perfect, but we still love it, even more after our chat with Game Director Stig Asmussen. Summing up its greatness is hard without spoilers, but in this case, spoilers are abound. We'eve already exposed the downsides to God of War 3. Now let's look at the highlights. (more...)

God of War 3 is an excellent game. I think it’s, in many ways, the best exclusive PS3 title thus far. But it ain’t perfect, and we're all about finding the best, and worst, in games. As critics, it's our job to point out the extremes on both sides, so here, we discuss the darker side of God of War 3. (more...)

Yes, You Can Beat God of War III in Around 8 Hours

A post by Ken Feldman of Santa Monica Studios, the developer of God of War 3, stated on the God of War forums that it took their fastest tester 12-13 hours to complete the game. As a game reviewer, I don't consider myself privy to special knowledge or skills, especially considered to testers, who literally play games 8-10 hours a day, and more often 6-7 days a week. But this is a false statement, as I completed the game in roughly 8 hours, 35 minutes, including the end credits and cutscenes. This screenshot is of my final auto-save:

Originally, I thought this was the last autosave upon fighting Zeus, but apparently it's the final cutscene before killing Zeus, so thankfully no spoilers there. Video below for non-believers. And just so you all know, there's nothing wrong with 8 hours of brilliance. Nothing at all. And no, I didn't run through the game, I played every bit and never restarted. Beat the game in two sittings. (more...)

Stig Asmussen on God of War III’s Ending

When I’d set out for GDC, God of War 3 was fresh in my mind. I’d just beat the game a few days earlier, and while my brain still today staggers in awe of the grandiose nature of Kratos’ finale, one rotten tart left a sourness only someone who helped make the game could remove. I didn’t intend to find a cure to my ailment concerning the end of the game, which you can read about here, but instead received some important, and somewhat numbing and humbling, food for thought.

It all came from a chance meeting with Stig Asmussen, Game Director on God of War 3. (more...)

MLB 2k10 Review: Just Barely Tips the Ball

filed under features, reviews, xbox 360

To break it down simply, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 have their own exclusive baseball games, SCE's The Show and 2k's MLB 2kXX series. What this means is that if you only own a Xbox 360, and are an avid baseball fan, your choice of baseball game is pretty much set as there are no alternatives on the platform. Since 2k's MLB series debuted on the 360, the yearly iterations each had their shares of steps forwards and backwards but could never match up against PS3's The Show. Does this dilemma continue with MLB 2k10?

InstantAction Aims to Embed Any Game Within Any Website

In case you haven't noticed by now, I've been trying to figure out just what InstantAction has secretly been working on these past few months for a while now. Thankfully they've started to reveal what they have in store for the future of InstantAction.com, and it's quite big. But first, a quick recap to bring everyone up to speed:

InstantAction is a website created by GarageGames that features games playable within the browser. However, instead of being merely yet another Flash-based gaming site with countless Asteroids clones, the games on InstantAction boast the one thing most browser games lack: great graphics. Take a look at Fallen Empire: Legions to see what I mean.

In July of 2009, Louis Castle, of Command and Conquer fame, hopped on board as the new CEO of GarageGames and InstantAction. Shortly thereafter the company went silent, and the InstantAction studio was split in two. One in Portland, OR., the other in Las Vegas. All we were told is that whatever Castle was working on, it was big. If things go as planned, I believe they're right... (more...)
