Gearbox Gaffer Randy Pitchford Attacks 'Evil' PlayStation Network Hackers

Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford has hit out against the "cyber-terrorists" that have brought the PlayStation Network to its knees, pleading with gamers to support Sony in its endeavours to restore online services to the PlayStation 3

Speaking with Eurogamer as part of a promotional tour for Duke Nukem Forever, Pitchford said we are all victims of cyber-terrorism. "Every one of us who plays games..

Amazon Outs Mafia II: Director's Cut Edition

Mafia II was a surprisingly captivating game

The open-world lacked variety, but the story had us hooked from the moment we started it up. If you're yet to experience the game yet, it might be worth holding on just a little while. Amazon's listed [looks like it's been pulled now, folks - Ed] a "Director's Cut" edition of the Godfather-inspired sandbox shooter, touting the full game plus..

Hang On, Duke Nukem Forever Has A 'Capture The Babe' Multiplayer Mode?

Uh-oh, time for the sexist white knights to jump on their horse and ride to the rescue -- guess what, Duke Nukem Forever objectifies women? Hang on, wait a minute, Duke Nukem? Is that the sound of a thousand angsty nobodies dismounting their horse? Sure -- because in any other video game this would be deemed "sexist" by said sensitive types, but Duke Nukem always gets a free pass

Mainly because it's "funny". Supposedly. Take Duke Nukem Forever's "Capture The Babe" mode. It's a play on..

Levine Rules Out PlayStation Move For Bioshock Infinite, Keen On 3D Though

Irrational Games' Ken Levine has ruled out any PlayStation Move support for the upcoming Bioshock Infinite, stating that gamers would feel "cheated" by it

"I'd never want to throw in Move support just because it's going to make some first party happy or because some marketing department wants it on the box because, at the end of the day, gamers know," he told Play magazine. "If you..

Heads Up: Duke Nukem Forever Now Has An Official Website

Duke Nukem Forever now has an official website

Which is pretty crazy when you start to think about it. The game — which has been in development for, well, forever — is actually coming out in May (apparently). The website's packed with assets, terrible music and "hilarious" quips from the Duke himself. Click through here if you're interested in that sort of thing.

Why Top Spin 4 Is Disappointing With The PlayStation Move But Ace With The DualShock 3

Sports Champions just doesn't get enough credit

Its art-style might be as flat as a pancake, but some of the package's mini-games come closer to true simulation than sports franchise's that have been iterated upon for years. The reason behind its success is the PlayStation Move, which is a wildly responsive unit when used in the right regard. It may have been a launch-title for Sony's motion unit,..

Good Grief, Duke Nukem Forever's Campaign Is 16-18 Hours Long

The general consensus seems to be that Duke Nukem Forever is an old-school shooter

Run into a room, face a hundred monsters, circle strafe and shoot, rinse and repeat. There's nothing wrong with throwback at all, in fact games like Bionic Commando Rearmed and Super Street Fighter IV have had tremendous commercial success because of their reverence for the past. But now you go and tell me that Duke..

Duke Nukem Forever: Balls Of Steel Edition Includes A Bunch Of Crap You Don't Really Want

We're not sure where we stand with collector's editions anymore

At first we thought they were a really novel addition to really big releases, but now that every game gets one, they're starting to feel less special. What's more, the stuff that's included is getting a bit predictable. We suppose they are still great for real fans of the franchises involved, but having bought a couple of these (and..

The Darkness II To Get Cel-Shaded Visual Make-Over

The original The Darkness had a dark but predictable visual style

The sequel, however, will be cel-shaded. That's according to the game's lead designer, Digital Extremes' Tom Galt, who insisted that the new studio are "carving" their own path for The Darkness II, with a bigger emphasis on action and story. “What Starbreeze did well, in a nutshell, were characters and story,” said Galt..

2K Reveals The Darkness II, Developed By Digital Extremes & Due In 2011

Remember The Darkness? Vaguely

Yeah, us too. We remember watching "To Kill A Mockingbird" with our polygonal girlfriend. Then it all went a bit weird and we had snakes coming out of our shoulders. Then it got even weirder, and we started walking around trenches, except the soldiers in them were all skeletons. Or something. Honestly, we can't remember much else. We do know people have been..

Duke Nukem Forever will launch in North America after 13-years of development chaos.

Top Spin 4 Drop (Shots) Onto PlayStation 3 March 18th In The UK

After yesterday's March 15th US release date announcement for Top Spin 4, we anticipated the UK date wouldn't be far behind

2K's just sent us confirmation that the PlayStation Move controlled tennis title will launch on March 18th in good ol' Blighty. The game will feature Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and Ana Ivanovic (please stop losing! <3) on the cover. The US cover's slightly different. No Ana..
