Here’s a couple of cool gun controllers I found while cruising the aisles at CES the other day. Both the Nintendo Wii and Sony PS3 are getting new guncons from CTA Digital, but the Xbox 360 got left out in the cold for some reason.
Still waiting for MechWarrior 5, eh? What about a mod based on a cutting-edge engine? Will that tide you over? If so, the Wandering Samurai team have quite a gift for you, as they have just released the beta version of their Crysis mod MechWarrior: Living Legends.
Most of the Wii gun controllers out there require that you slap your Wii-mote into some sort of add-on accessory, and usually feature questionable ergonomics. The new Penguin United CrossFire does away with such concerns by integrating their own Wii-mote into the gun itself – which as far as I know is a first.
Now I’ve not been shy in saying that the Gravity Gun in Half Life 2 is my all-time favorite video game weapon. So when I heard about Namco Bandai’s new Xbox 360/PS3 third-person gravity manipulation shooter Inversion, my curiosity was definitely piqued.
It’s true! It may be confusing as a concept, but once you start playing the Flash-based Upgrade Complete you’ll see how straightforward it is. Meta-video games like this are more often than not bursting with humor, and Upgrade Complete is no exception.
Would you survive a zombie attack? If the tech catches up to the idea, ARhrrrr might help you find out just how well-equipped you’d be. ARhrrrr is an Augmented Reality Game, currently in concept form, that aims to tirn smart phones into a window on the zombie apocalypse.
The somewhat-maligned Left 4 Dead sequel is scheduled for this November, just under a year after the original, but now grumblers have something cheaper (or, if you’re on PC, free!) to look forward to: a Crash Course in kicking zombies in the face.
BioShock 2, the sequel to Take-Two’s alternative history shooter has been delayed to the first half of 2010. The horror! The sequel was originally slated to debut late this year, just in time for the holiday buying season, but the title has been pushed back.
There’s only one thing better than blasting waves of alien dudes, and that’s doing it with a buddy. Even better than that? If, when the opportunity presents itself, you can also take potshots at said buddy.
So the vast gaming frontier is pretty well packed with shmups of all kinds. Scroll, bounce, dodge, a little running, a little gunning–whatever your preferred action, you can get it in a shooter… and now, that even includes kissing.
With a name like Planet Pachinko, you might expect this game, which is set for release next week in the U.S. on WiiWare, the Nintendo Wii’s marketplace for original games, to actually be a pachinko game.
Some people want games to be as sweet as sugar, with showers of fresh blossoms and lollipops instead of blood, and frolicking in place of combat. Those aren’t the people who made this custom Wii Zapper.
The gaming world is full of MMORPGs, games that feature interaction of hundreds or thousands of players. However, these games usually don’t put them all in the same place at the same time, and don’t have hundreds battling each other at the same time.
It amazes me how many shooter accessories are starting to surface for the Nintendo Wii, despite the lack of games that you can actually use them with. However, manufacturers continue to crank them out, and this is one of my favorites so far.
If you own an Xbox 360, you already know the crack-like addictive powers of the retro-mod arcade shooter Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved.
If you’re a Nintendo fan, you’ll now be able to get in on the action.
