Ubisoft's Wii U roundtable, now on video

Remember the second developer roundtable that Nintendo held during E3 2011? The one that featured Killer Freaks From Outer Space? First and foremost, it's rude to refer to Nintendo head Satoru Iwata and Ubisoft head Yves Guillemot as killer freaks, not to mention accuse them of being from other...

"My name's Peter Molyneux and I made this horrendous mistake." With that emblematic phrase, Lionhead creative director Peter Molyneux kicks off a hilarious public service announcement he created with the help of OXM UK. According to him, the Fable: The Journey demo he showed off at E3 2011 gave...

Resident Evil Revelations preview: Drained

My first potential action in Resident Evil: Revelations was simple and nostalgic: drain the bath tub? Well it did appear as if something was in the water -- at least that's what the text box before the question had told me. "Eff it!" I thought, caution to the wind. "Let's drain the bastard." And...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword preview: Swinging for the skies

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the Zelda game I wanted on Wii five years ago, when the console launched. I don't mean that to say it's not good, because I sure had a great time playing it.

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team preview: Dakka dakka dakka

Despite Warhammer 40K: Kill Team's dubious lot in life to be a digitally distributed tie-in for the upcoming Warhammer 40K: Space Marine release, the game actually stands on its own as a competent twin-stick shooter. It feels like a game that could be much more if THQ wanted it to be. My...

Orcs Must Die! preview: Pleasure in panic

It's hard to define Orcs Must Die!. On paper, it's a marriage of the Tower Defense and the action-RPG genres -- but the influence of one doesn't trump the other; it doesn't feel dominated by either one of those two genres. Robot Entertainment has expertly blended the two genres together to create...
