Bionic Commando: Rearmed Demo Impressions

Sweet but very short. Maybe the shortest demo since Heavenly Sword. You get literally half a level, 2 challenge stages (which I haven’t tried yet), and a tutorial. It’s just an appetizer, at best. Capcom could have given us a little more to fiddle with, without screwing with their sales figures, I reckon.
I guess it [...]

Haze Demo Impressions

I took Haze out for a brief drive last night. I’ve been quite curious to see how this one would turn out. Specifically, if it would differentiate itself in the vast sea of first-person shooters.
The answer: inconclusive. I know, that’s a cop-out, but the demo only gives you the Mantel Corp troopers to try out. [...]

Echochrome is cool.
English demo is out now.
Brain explodes, leaks out.
Call of Duty 4.
Map packs way late on Triple.
Not much more to say.
Ok, Army of Two.
Slam a Dew and run foot-race.

Massive fucking patch kills bugs.
Next up, bikes at night.
Iron Man is shit.
The movie looks sort of neat.
But the game is shit.
Sigh. Lost Odyssey.

Haze Clears; Demo on May 23

ShackNews says that Free Radical’s new shooter Haze will have a demo released to the PlayStation Network on May 23. I was gratified to see that said demo will contain both a single-player section as well as a 4-player co-op mode. That particular mode has been unique to Halo 3 thus far in the console [...]

Universe At War Demo on Live

I’ve had my eye on this one for a while now. There’s a strange bumper crop of RTS games on the 360 this year, but this one stood out for it’s unique setup and radically asymmetrical balancing. Also, Petroglyph did those Empire at War Star Wars RTS games, which I understood to be not-sucky.
I heartily [...]

Pata pon chaka don pon demo

The Patapon demo materializes this afternoon on the PSN Store (PC and PS3).
Nothing more needs to be said. The game looks really promising. There’s a goofy, overly saccharine corporate-themed faux romantic announcement over at the SCE blog.
After you heave yourself, spent and drooling, off of your loved one this evening, you can enjoy some frantic [...]

Twitching and Snarling

(I’m going to be trying these big compilation posts for awhile, see if it works better. If you’d rather I did the old format, by all means, hurl fruit in the comments section, kthx.)
Ah, but these minor delays do tend to pile up, don’t they. I looked upon that little calendar on the right [...]

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Demo Impressions

I was running through the jungle.
The pirates were up ahead, screaming alarm positions as I approached. While they were still surprised, I popped off a few shots in their general direction while grabbing some cover behind a log, which was already splintering from the return fire. Just then, one of these assholes starts to try [...]

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Demo Goes Live Tomorrow

Big one for PS3 owners. Will it be Tomb Raider with more guns and less boobs?

Neil Springer, I Name Thee: Fuckwit

Seems that Neil Springer from canoe.ca played a Haze demo and didn’t like it very much. No big deal – no one in their right mind goes to canoe.ca for anything other than a traffic report. But the particular way in which he criticized the demo is, to say the least, weak:
You control proud soldier [...]
