Jade Raymond Outlines EA's Star Wars Release Schedule, Teases Upcoming Titles

At today's EA Play press conference, Jade Raymond, the founder of EA's Motive Studios, took to the stage to give a general outline of EA's plans for upcoming Star Wars games. We didn't learn the name of any new titles, but we did get a brief snapshot of the studios working on the projects. I sat down with Raymond for a few minutes following the press conference to discuss EA's plans and to get some clarity about what is coming next. Raymond wouldn't reveal too much, but she also didn't deny certain assumptions.

Our E3 Walking Guide For Dummies

about X hours ago from

Ahh, E3. It's that time when companies dazzle the public with their latest and greatest gaming offerings, as well as a bunch of regrettable nonsense. If you've attended, you also know that the show floors are crowded and tricky to navigate. Fortunately for you, we've drafted a special guide to show you the most efficient path through each of the two main halls. It also provides a super-informative idea of what you can expect to see from the biggest booths.

If you've already drafted a schedule of your own, great job. Otherwise, feel free to superimpose a dotted line on the floor and start walking. Our map is not only 100-percent accurate and to scale, it's also absolutely serious.

Super Replay – Tex Murphy: Under A Killing Moon (Part Six)

Super Replay – Tex Murphy: Under A Killing Moon (Part Six)

A few months ago I emerged as the victor of Game Informer's most recent Super Replay Showdown. My prize? Subjecting my fellow editors and our viewers to the strange and maddening FMV adventure game that is Tex Murphy: Under A Killing Moon. Starring a bumbling private eye who spends his weeks trying to make rent and ends up going on a quest to prevent the end of the world, Under A Killing Moon is a peculiar mishmash of genres, the kind of game that could have only been birthed in the early '90s.

It's pure, undistilled zaniness that has to been seen to be believed. So sit back in your chair and push the Maltese falcon on your desk out of the way of the screen so you can join me, Andrew Reiner, Dan Tack, and Kyle Hilliard as we navigate this twisted, futuristic vision of San Francisco, putting our flimsy detective skills to use while being constantly berated by James Earl Jones.

8 Reasons Why Video Games Are Bad Role Models

about X hours ago from

If you were to attempt half of the things commonly occur in video games, at best you would get dirty looks. At worst you would be imprisoned for life or end up dead. From eating food found in the street to disobeying traffic laws, committing mass murders, and lighting yourself on fire, there are a few lessons we shouldn’t take away from video games. 

We collected some of the worst ideas video games have tried to put in our minds as a cautionary tale of what not do from day to day.  

Eating Food Found in the Street or TrashAs a general rule of thumb, any food found on the street, in a trashcan, or in a wasteland should avoid the inside of your mouth. Contrary to what you may have been led to believe from games like Streets of Rage 2, Bioshock, or the Fallout series, street-turkeys, trash-cakes, and irradiated Salisbury Steaks will do little to help your overall health. In fact, eating said items will likely just give you food poisoning, cancer, or worse.

The Early-Generation Games We Think Deserve A Second Chance

about X hours ago from

Console launches are typically one of the most exciting times to be a gamer. Earlier in the console cycle, while we waited for the heavy-hitting software like Uncharted 4 and Halo 5, we were eager to pick up anything that showed off the potential of our brand new gaming machines. Adopting a new piece of hardware at launch is always a gamble, especially when the majority of titles that release early in a new generation of consoles tend to underwhelm.

For a developer with an interesting new idea for a franchise, poor sales or middling review scores shouldn’t have to be the end. With the release of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One far behind us, and E3 approaching quickly, here is a list of a few such games that deserve a sequel or follow-up to win us over.
