PS3/X360 Preview - 'Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2008

Genre: Fighting
Publisher: Midway
Developer: Midway
Release Date: November 10, 2008

There are few things as odd in the video game world as the concept of crossovers. Oh, placing two great tastes that take great together seems obvious enough, but in some cases, the combination doesn't consist of great tastes that you'd dare to stick together. Take the bizarre announcements in just the past year. You've got Capcom crossing over Tatsunoko, which will feature the oddity of Ryu and Chun-Li battling characters from Gatchaman and Gold Lightan. Then you've got Cross Edge for the PS3, which will

Well, two out of three isn't bad.

There was, however, one message that got through louder than any of the others: Street Fighter IV is

PC Preview - 'Dragon Age: Origins'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2008

Genre: Role-Playing
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: BioWare
Release Date: Q1 2009

I first remember hearing about Dragon Age back around the time when Jade Empire came out. It was what Bioware was pointedly not discussing at E3 2006; it was first an MMORPG, then it was not, and then it was again. Every project they were involved with was, for a time, either thought to be Dragon Age or initially viewed with irritation because it obviously wasn't.

It's odd to live in a world where the game actually exists. It feels like a dream or a trap or
