Microsoft's drumming up a huge wad of excitement for a mystery announcement slated for later today. Is it a tablet? A last minute rumor revealing a leaked document suggests Microsoft will unveil a 7-inch Xbox tablet.
While most people were celebrating Father's Day this weekend, the gaming world was rocked to the very core when an alleged 56-page document document (with images) claiming to detail Microsoft's next-gen Xbox plans surfaced.
Are you not happy with the current Nintendo 3DS form factor? Are you hoping Nintendo will revise the 3DS, perhaps with larger screens or a thinner chassis? Nintendo says it's already working on a 3DS successor.
As you're about to see, it's a pretty good time to be both a fan of video games and science fiction. It's true that the two have always gone hand-in-hand, but at E3 2012 this year, we were treated to plenty of sci-fi goodness from familiar franchises and original ideas alike. Here we've collected all the games announced at the show that have a sci-fi angle. We've picked a few of our favorites and listed a couple of honorable mentions — it's all inside.
Civilization 2 was first released in 1996, which is approximately forever ago. Reddit user Lycerious has been playing the same game of Civ 2 for the past 10 years (!), and his virtual world of 3991 A.D. is a "hellish nightmare" devastated by global warming and perpetual nuclear war.
As the smoke surrounding the Wii U settles, even more new details (Nintendo sure is letting it drip out one drop at a time) are surfacing and, depending on where you stand, could make you either very happy or very sad.
Covering E3 2012 is no easy task. Because E3 is only open to industry folk, we thought it fit to close out E3 with a bang. Here's a for-your-eyes-only video tour of what E3 is like from the inside of the year's largest video game event.
Halo 4 has been a known quantity for some time now. The burning question now has more to do with the developer than the game. Can Microsoft-owned 343 Industries match or exceed Bungie, the creators of the Halo series? At this year's E3, Microsoft drew back the curtain on the multiplayer modes in Halo 4, and we were there to check it out.
Breathe deep, folks! it's going to be okay: Star Wars 1313 is not a Kinect game. At E3 2012, we were shown a behind-closed-doors demo of Star Wars 1313 in action. Here's what we saw.
Motion controllers (such as the Wii, Kinect, and the PlayStation Move) have created an entirely new way to interact with video games. But somehow, they've all failed at what we really want them for: virtual sword fighting. Neal Stephenson is going to fix that with a new video game called CLANG, and it's on Kickstarter right now.
