First Impressions: Just Cause 2 on Playstation 3 Demo

Just Cause 2 on Playstation 3 Demo

At first we were a little disappointed with Just Cause 2

It's a game we've been following closely here at PushSquare, namely because the original was somewhat of a flawed gem. Getting hands-on time with the recently released demo is the first time we've had a chance to play Just Cause 2 here at PushSquare towers, and honestly it didn't leave the best first impression. The opening cut-scene seemed..

New Lara Croft Game Looks Like "WTF, I Did NOT Expect That!"

Well this is weird

Remember we announced the new Lara Croft game to be downloadable the other day. Yeah, well that was strange enough, but did you expect it to be an isometric co-op arcade-esque game? Noooo. As described in a first-look by GameSpot, Guardian Of Light will feature two playable characters: Lara (obviously) and a Mayan dude called Totec. Both characters wi

News: Just Cause 2 Continues To Look Like 2010's Sleeper Hit Of The Year

Just Cause 2 Continues To Look Like 2010's Sleeper Hit Of The Year

Website visitor statistics tell us where public interest lies

For example, a post about Modern Warfare 2 sends the crowds running. But no matter how positive we are about Just Cause 2, no one seems to care. We're sorry Avalanche, but that's just what we're seeing on our end. Still, that's not indicative of the game's quality at all. Hence our sleeper hit comment. Sure, it's a bit too early to be..

For example, you can totally tether an enemy to another enemy, sticking them together and giving you an advantage. You can also hook enemies up to helicopters, or even whip people with it. It's just..

Say Goodbye To Eidos, They're Now Known As Square Enix Europe

Remember Eidos? The British publisher that got bought out by Square Enix earlier in the year

Well Eidos as a publisher now no longer exist. They're being rebranded as Square Enix Europe. The Eidos name will live on as a "developer" title - so the likes of Hitman and Tomb Raider will now be developed by Eidos and published by Square Enix Europe. It's all part of Square's master plan for..
