Test Chamber – See A Full Playthrough Of Resident Evil 7's Teaser: Beginning Hour Demo

about X hours ago from

Yesterday, Sony surprised us with a new Resident Evil that looks nothing like Resident Evil, and then took it a step further by releasing a demo for the game. So we decided to play it.

It's a short glimpse of Resident Evil 7, clocking in at about 20 minutes for the full playthrough. At this point, we're not sure how much this demo will reflect the final game, but It does prove that Capcom is trying something very different with its popular horror franchise.

Join myself and Kim Wallace as we respond to jump scares and basically just try to figure out what is happening in this weird, dilapidated house.

Test Chamber – Our Thoughts On The Halo Wars 2 Beta

about X hours ago from

Seven years ago when Halo Wars released, it was praised for being one of the few console real time strategy games worth playing.

With Microsoft announcing the open beta for the anticipated Halo Wars 2 yesterday during its E3 press conference, Matt Miller and I decided to check out the action. It's surprisingly approachable, even if some of the PC complexities are missed.

Let us know what you think below.

Science-Fiction Weekly: Mass Effect: Andromeda And The Games Of E3

about X hours ago from

E3 just kicked off a few hours ago, and I already feel like I'm in over my head with science-fiction games to cover. The press conferences from various publishers over the last few days produced a wealth of new information for some of science fiction's biggest gaming properties, including Mass Effect and Star Wars, and the show floor is filled with even more promising games to see.

The big game on my radar for E3 was Mass Effect: Andromeda. Given how long the game has been in development, I expected BioWare to be front and center at EA's Play event, but we once again walked away with a brief teaser video and no legitimate information. Or did we? After watching the video, I took to Twitter to ask my followers if they thought the Andromeda video contained any in-game footage. One of the first people to respond was BioWare's general manager Aaryn Flynn. "Yes, you did!" he said. Most, if not all of the footage shown, is from gameplay, and it looks absolutely stunning.

Thankfully, Sega and Relic held an event to reveal more about the ins and outs of the game. Here’s a rundown of the information to give you a better idea of what to expect from Dawn of War III.
