Who are you, and what have you done with Jack Tretton?
Sony’s E3 press conference Monday night was striking for a lot of reasons, but the greatest contrast of all wasn’t between Sony and Microsoft. It was between Sony and itself.
More of a Descension than Ascension.
God of War: Ascension is a game that I had a hard time getting excited for. For me, God of War 3, capped off the saga of Kratos on the right note. It was bittersweet to see the story end, but it did so on an epic (and violent) note. Instead of the series continuing with a new protagonist or mythology, we have a prequel to a story that I felt pretty comfortable with already. Ascension ends up being a sadly mediocre game, and I expected more.

Capcom Introduces New Ways to Play Resident Evil.
Resident Evil has been an important series in gaming for a long time now. Games like Resident Evil 2 and 4 were revolutionary landmarks in survival horror and third person gameplay. Despite its lineage of quality titles, the series has been often criticized for its departure from survival horror and its venture into more of an action oriented style. Resident Evil 6 aims to combine the best of both its past horror-focused outings and the action-oriented gameplay of its more recent titles.
Batman and Robin's latest outing answers some questions, and raises even more.
Batman: Arkham City was arguably one of last year's best games. Not only did it provide a ton of fan-service for Batman fanatics, but it also was a fantastic game, providing a great story, addictive combat, and brilliant production values. One of the most memorable parts of the game, for better or worse is how it ended. Harley Quinn's Revenge deals with the shocking conclusion to Arkham City, and its effect on not only Harley, but the Caped Crusader himself.
This review contains some spoilers of the ending to Batman: Arkham City. You have been warned!
