In case you missed it, here’s this week in gaming (Week ending 4/20/12)

In the week that ended with bad jokes about 420, it was pretty uneventful. A few games were announced for 2013. And betas were opened for all the world to see. We also got a brief walkthrough of Pax East from our very own Steph, who was featured on Xplay! So, let’s look at the week that was, in case you missed it!  

PAX East Abridged Series

A week ago I found myself standing shoulder-to-shoulder with my fellow nerds as we waited for our second performance for the night to begin. If you have never been to PAX (either East or Prime), then you are truly missing out on a phenomenal experience where you meet the thousands of best friends you never knew you had. You find yourself throwing shame away and getting lost in the thrilling excitement that flows through your...

Modest Law’s PAX East’er Weekend Round Up!

 So PAX East’er weekend as come and gone and while you were out macking on chocolate eggs and jelly beans, I was out being awesome! (And by awesome, I mean nearly crippling myself with the amount of walking and driving I did this week) Through the rest of the week I‘ll go into greater detail on games I got to spend some significant time with: games like Transcript, Quantum Conundrum, Sleeping Dogs, and more! But...

Rocksmith – New way to rock or just a repeat roll?

Let me start off by saying that  I am not a musician. Nor have I ever dreamed of being one. As a matter of fact, in school I purposely stayed away from music classes as much as I could. The thought of playing an instrument just brought on a severe case of boredom. I have always preferred a marker to a mouthpiece, but that’s just me. When Rocksmith was announced, I was instantly annoyed.  Having worked at...

Uber First Impressions Preview – Just Dance Kids, Just Dance 3, Abba, The Black Eyed Peas Experience

  Lets just say it: UbiSoft has definitely stepped it up to a whole other level when it comes to music and rhythm games. Or maybe just casual games in general. It was just a few weeks ago when I absolutely fell in love with Rocksmith and now there are a few other musical titles that I’m getting all excited about again. Give me a few moments to explain, I was lucky enough to try...

Ubisoft Discusses Dynamic Difficulty in “Rocksmith” [Video]

Being one of the most anticipated musical rhythm games, Rocksmith tries to explain the dynamic difficulty component found in the game. Everything from song selection to why introducing such a concept is covered in the video by UbiSoft’s Paul Cross. If you don’t know about the awesomeness that is Rocksmith, why not check out my first impressions article to get a little bit more insight into why the game is so awesome. Hope you guys...

Rocksmith goes to ELEVEN – First Impression Preview

It was about a year ago when the web buzzed about Rock Band 3 and it’s ability to finally allow gamers a way to learn how to play guitar and bass. However, it’s innovative buzz came and went. I hardly ever see a pro player on multiplayer these days. Instead, the uniqueness of the game was lost and all that remained was a new installment into the Rock Band franchise. As innovative as it was, it...

E3 Editor’s Choice: “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood”

The on-going struggle between the assassins and templars has reached new heights. Ezio Auditore da Firenze is back and a little shaken up from his last encounters. However, he is still much wiser and deadlier than ever. “Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood” continues exactly from where the “Assassin’s Creed II” left off.
