Comic-Con is back in San Diego this July 18 to 21. The massive convention plays host to comics, video games, manga, animation, movies and shows, cosplay and much more. In an effort to counter unscrupulous folks from hording tickets and reselling them at a profit, anyone wanting to attend Comic-Con (from normal attendees, volunteers and press) will now have to go through a two-step process to gain access to an entrance ticket. First comes Member ID registration, which s are […]
Real Racing 3, announced in September during Apple’s iPhone 5 announcement event, is a mobile racing game slated for iOS this month. This third iteration of Real Racing will sport much better graphics (taking advantage the widescreen and more horsepower that the iPhone 5 has to offer, but it will likely also run on older phones with iOS 6) and several new features. One of them is called ‘time shifted multiplayer’ which enables players to play against their friends from […]
SimCity is coming up in less than a month, arriving as early as March 5th depending on where you live. The game will contain a sandbox mode, apparently a highly requested feature according to Guillaume Pierre, lead gameplay scripter behind SimCity.

Of course, this also means that players will be excluded from leaderboards, global market participation and cannot […]

The ‘gear gating’ system requires players to acquire the suitable tools to unlock inaccessible places and allows players to uncover the island’s mysteries when they return to that same area.

It looks like we won’t be seeing as many Resident Evil games as often from now on and a shift back to the horror genre when we do see the next Resident Evil come out. Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata has acknowledged that there have been too many games coming out under the Resident Evil umbrella in the past two years and, as a result, future releases might be spread out over a longer time between games. He mentions […]
A new Sherlock Holmes game, titled Crimes & Punishments, has just been announced by Focus Home Interactive this weekend. The new game will be different from previous Sherlock Holmes titles in the gameplay and graphics departments.

Players will be faced with the newly-introduced moral choices, instead of ‘going by the book’, which will affect in-game events.
Sherlock Holmes: Crime & Punishments is in development for PC, […]
