When it comes to Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky, I am as fascinated with the game itself as I am with the uncontrollable hype machine behind it.  Before E3, some people had heard of No Man’s Sky, but they didn’t really understand what it was.  After the E3 trailer, millions of people had heard of

As much as we enjoyed Left 4 Dead, we really weren’t sold on Turtle Rock’s new project until we watched the recent 4v1 trailer.  Don’t get me wrong.  There was never much chance of Evolve being unenjoyable overall; it just didn’t look like much fun for the player being hunted.  The original pitch sounded a

I have to admit.  When I first passed the Dive Kick booth at PAX East 2013, I just kind of assumed that the game was a joke.  Even without playing it, I understood the premise.  Dive Kick is two button fighting game centered around one overpowered move, the dive-kick.  Using only two buttons, and no

Ubisoft’s booth may have been the most central spectacle on the PAX East 2013 expo hall floor, and the action surrounding ShootMania Storm was a major reason.  They were running live matchups all day, with dozens of PC stations streaming directly to the big screen monitors above.  They even had a host onstage hyping up
