The Darkness II Gets Delayed Out Of October, Into February

It's that time of the year again

The time of the year where publishers of not-quite-blockbuster-games delay their big fall releases because of the looming threat of Call Of Duty and Uncharted and Batman and Battlefield. 2K Games' The Darkness II is the first notable title to be pushed out of its release window, presumably for marketing reasons. The title will now release in February, as opposed to..

This Is What BioShock Infinite's Protagonist Looks Like

The face of BioShock Infinite's protagonist, Booker DeWitt, has been revealed on the cover of EGM magazine

The character looks rugged and dishevelled in a classy sort of way, sporting an expensive jacket and pin-stripe trouser. One thing we liked about the original BioShock was the mystique surrounding the protagonist, so we're not sure how we feel about Booker DeWitt's big reveal.

Tear Deeper Into Columbia in BioShock Infinite

Tearing the worlds apart

Maybe it was the way that Rapture gripped us from beginning to end in the original BioShock, or maybe it was the way the game created such a surreal alternate lifestyle in the underwater city that it almost seemed like it could actually be lying in wait somewhere in the ocean depths. Today we grasp at every morsel of...

No doubt if you've been reading previews for the game, or listening to podcasts, you'll have heard about this section from the game's E3 demo where Elizabeth — your side-kick throughout the game — opens up a portal (or tear) into a 1980s sidewalk while trying to save a horse. The potential for other psychological craziness is..

A. Noire</a> off its perch at the top of the UK sales charts, scoring a number one finish for the long-in-development FPS. L.A. Noire finished up in second, while Sucker Punch's new superhero escapade finished up just behind Zumba Fitness in fourth. The game probably deserved to do better than..

E3 2011: The Darkness II's New Visual Style Looks Great

The Darkness II's New Visual Style Looks Great

When we first heard The Darkness was getting a sequel, we were a bit like, "Yeah whatever?" We liked the original game a fair amount, but never considered it a classic like many others do

That said, we were wrong to be so dismissive of The Darkness II. This new trailer for the sequel looks pretty impressive. We adore the new graphic novel visual style that developers Digital Extremes have..

Duke Nudem Is Ridiculous, Not Really Safe For Work

Ok, so there is a safe for work version of Duke Nudem -- 2K Games' latest Duke Nukem Forever spin-off game -- but who wants to play that? The game even appropriately boos you when you try to select it

And rightly so too. The actual game is a trashy target practice mini-game — but if you win you get to look at girls take their clothes off. You even get a wallpaper for completing a level. Our..
