E3 2011 - Payday: The Heist Hands-On Preview

About a week before E3 I was going over my scheduled appointments and realized I had a meeting with Sony Online Entertainment on day three.  I was wondering what I was going to see on the co-op front, other than maybe a few updates for DC Universe Online.  Then I checked my inbox and saw this message from Nick; "When you meet with SOE you need to try to see/play this." He had posted a link to the PlayStation Blog.  I glanced at a newly announced game called PAYDAY: The Heist. I took a little note, responded back with something like, "Looks cool. Kind of a Kane and Lynch multiplayer vibe," and immediately put it on the back burner.  I've never been too much into crime games, and shooting cops and taking hostages isn't my cup of tea.

Dungeon Siege 3 Commercial Welcomes Back Couch Co-Op

The first commercial for Dungeon Siege 3 has just hit the internet and it leans a bit on the lighter side of gaming.  The commercial showcases two gamers taking on the bad guys in a real world/video game cross over.  Best of all, they co-op the whole way through.  Obviously that's a big focus for Dungeon Siege 3 with both couch and online co-op support, though the commercial takes a dig at other games that have recently been omitting the couch mode.

E3 2011 - Rage Hands-On Preview

On the third day of E3, I found myself short on appointments and long on games I still wanted to see.  I had been to the Bethesda booth the previous day, but due to time constraints I didn't get a chance to play id Software's new FPS, Rage.  After batting my eyelashes at the front desk I managed to bypass the line and get some hands-on time with the post-apocalyptic title.  I only had a short session with the game, but I was very impressed.

Steam Mid-Week Sale: 40% off Darkspore

Steam sales are becoming more frequent, which is great for frugal gamers, but perhaps bad for their wallets.  The current mid-week deal is for Darkspore.  The action-RPG is 40% off during the sale, setting you back a mere $29.99.  We thought rather highly of the game, giving it a 4.5 score in our review.  If you like running around in outer space with up to three friends, killing stuff and collecting loot for your army of characters, it might be time to give Darkspore a chance.

E3 2011 - Aliens: Colonial Marines Eyes-On Preview

Randy Pitchford immediately quipped that he'd been stealing from Alien(s) for years, so it's a "dream come true" to actually be working on a true Aliens licensed title.  The passion that Randy shows for his titles at Gearbox becomes immediately apparent if you've ever met him or watched him demo a game.  At E3 2011 Randy and a two other Gearbox devs showed us a live demo of Aliens: Colonial Marines, the four player co-op shooter for the 360, PS3, Wii U and PC - and by all accounts - its an Aliens fan's dream come true as well.
