It's Time To Kick Ass & Forget About Duke Nukem

Duke Nukem Forever's going to get announced tonight

There's no way it's not going to happen. The evidence has been mounting. First there was the Gearbox rumour, to which the studio's gaffer, Randy Pitchford, said we'd find out more at PAX. Then 3D Realms' George Broussard posted a picture of some flying pigs on Twitter, one of which was wearing Duke's glasses. Now 2K's teasing a huge announcement..

Hey Mr. Levine, Could Bioshock Ever Return To Rapture?

The latest Bioshock game, Bioshock: Infinite, is notably set in the sky

Aside from going into space, you couldn't get further from the depths of the ocean. So is this the end of Rapture then? This was the question CVG put to Bioshock's creator, Ken Levine, during GamesCom last week. His response was decidedly indecisive (ooooh): “It was a very challenging and very difficult thing for me not to do..

Ken Levine On Skipping Bioshock 2 & His Thoughts On The Game

With the announcement of Bioshock: Infinite, many people are asking the question as to why the series' creator, Ken Levine, skipped on Bioshock 2

The answer's simple, he told Joystiq that he "felt like we said what we wanted to say about Rapture". He continued: "That's one of the reasons Bioshock 2 wasn't the right project for us and, as we agreed with the company, we didn't have..

Borderlands Gets New DLC This September, "Claptrap's New Robot Revolution"

It was nice of Gearbox to mention that there'd be even more Borderlands DLC

Assuming the third pack was the last, we eliminated Borderlands from our growing PlayStation 3 software tower a while ago. Wrong move, PushSquare. "Claptrap's New Robot Revolution" is due in September and will set you back roughly $10. The DLC will include 20 new missions, Claptrap (skag-traps, etc) modded beasts,..

Mafia II on PlayStation 3 Demo

"Take out the fat guy," our partner declares as we point a sub-machine gun out of an upstairs window

Just moments earlier we'd been knocking back coca-cola while perusing a copy of Playboy magazine. Such is the life of a gangster. There's a good sense of place in Mafia II. Almost meticulously so.

Mafia II "Behind The Scenes" Trailer Talks About Technology

Making open world games is hard

This "Behind The Scenes" trailer with the developers of Mafia II details just how hard. They make an excellent point when they state that Mafia II is not a "sci-fi game and therefore people have an understanding how things should work within the gameworld". And it's true — watching people wait for the traffic lights to change in order to cross..
