If you haven't seen Papo & Yo's endearing announcement trailer, you should probably go check that out right now. Go ahead, I'll wait. All set? Great. Now that you've seen it, you'll understand why it was one of the few E3 2011 games that I made a specific point of going to play, just for me. ...

Most top-flight puzzle crackers are known for their speed, but the FBI's Nelson Tethers isn't like most puzzle crackers. In fact, he'll need until June 30 to put together the answer to his latest stumper: Puzzle Agent 2, coming to iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC from Telltale. After a brief E3 demo o...

You guys, I really want to like Anarchy Reigns. It's a ridiculous, over-the-top brawler and I really liked MadWorld -- like, a lot. So imagine my disappointment when I realized the only thing holding back Anarchy Reigns from being a whole lot of fun is the camera. ...

You've seen Nintendo's E3 2011 setup, and you've seen Sony's, but had you considered that they might've been "Better with Kinect?" Microsoft undoubtedly believes as much, but, well, the publisher is only able to outfit its own booth, silly! Don't be ridiculous! Given that, you'll clearly see i...

Street Fighter X Tekken doesn't play like Street Fighter IV and it certainly doesn't play like Tekken. To be honest, it plays more like a marriage between Street Fighter IV and the Vs. series. It's a faster paced, combo-heavy fighter -- everyone has very quick recovery times and some fighter's tr...

So Prototype 2's lead James Heller spends the first half of this new trailer complaining about Prototype 1 lead Alex Mercer killing his loved ones ... then he cuts like 30 dudes in half. Jim, aren't some of those soldiers spouses themselves? Are you that certain there won't be a Prototype 3? U...

As it's the last official day of E3 2011, we took to the rapidly thinning show floor to snap some pics of Sony's enormous setup this year. Of course the company's forthcoming handheld, the PlayStation Vita, was on full display, but games like Uncharted 3 and Ninja Gaiden ... 3 seemed most adept a...

Pouncing on unsuspecting victims is as thrilling as ever in Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Earlier this week, Alexander and I reformed our effective stabbing partnership and got to experience the multiplayer follow-up's notable additions -- and a few subtractions. Though we didn't see for ours...

Of all the things I wasn't expecting at this year's E3, Driver: San Francisco's multiplayer turning out to be the "have you tried that yet?" game is definitely in the top three. The genius "shift" system brings a whole new dimension to driving games and delivers a "still in the race" feel, whethe...

We'd gotten in the habit of letting the ongoing Sherlock Holmes game series fall into our proverbial blindspots, perhaps because of the lackluster production values or PC-centric game design. That said, we got a sneak peek at the sixth game in the series, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, and we ...

Sam isn't a man of change. You won't find him giving Yoga a whirl and you probably won't find him taking a leap on a VitaBoost passion-mango smoothie or whatever. And it shows in Serious Sam 3: BFE -- a case where minimal change actually ends up being a good thing. I was able to check out two ...

They're here, they're juicy, and they've got pointy teeth. Apparently, they're Killer Freaks From Outer Space? That's what the trailer that Ubisoft released tonight says, at least. As revealed during Nintendo's second developer roundtable earlier this evening, Ubisoft Montpelier is making the sci...

After just barely revealing that an Assassin's Creed title is in the works for Nintendo's Wii U, Ubisoft reps took to the Nintendo roundtable this evening and spoke to some of the features we'll see in the still untitled game (we're calling it "Assassin's Cwiihd"). Well, okay, first Ubisoft wante...

We know you're probably not at E3, but if you are, drop what you're doing and check out Rotastic, a charming sort of multiplayer action puzzler from French studio Dancing Dots. Through tons of single-screen levels, players use their grappling hooks to swing between pegs collecting gems and perfor...
