OXCGN’s Lost Planet 3 Review
Get your ass to E.D.N 3

(ED: We welcome another new contributor to the fold, Robert Addison, who brings us a review on Lost Planet 3.)
Welcome to E.D.N 3.
It’s cold, everything wants you dead, and you have a kick ass mech.
You play as Jim Payton, your everyday bloke on a mining mission to the uninhabited icy planet of E.D.N 3 by the promise of adventure and more importantly, a butt load of cash to support your wife and son back on earth.
After crash landing on your first day, you are rescued by your fellow miners and whisked away to the cosy confines of home base, run by mega company NEVEC. The first thing you notice about Lost Planet 3 is its horribly rendered cut scenes.
This is only highlighted by the fact that Lost Planet 3‘s voice acting is so spot on.
Embrace the cold and read on!

OXCGN’s DmC: Devil May Cry Review
A surprisingly solid reboot
by Gav Ross

Mired in controversy since its Tokyo Game Show reveal more than two years ago, DmC — a from-the-ground-up reinvention of Capcom’s beloved Devil May Cry franchise with UK development house Ninja Theory at the helm — arrives on shelves with a hefty weight of expectation on its shoulders.
Gone is the dashing, mystical demon-hunter with a silvery mop-top and predilection for exploring castles; the new Dante in his place is a cocky, well-groomed gent with plenty of swagger.
But, unable to remember more than random snippets from childhood, he’s also suffering an identity crisis.

Win DmC Game and Shirt Packs!
Devil May Cry, but you won’t, thanks to Capcom

I can still remember playing the original Devil May Cry on the Playstation 2 way back when it released in 2001.
The action-hack n’ slash Capcom spin-off of Resident Evil had attitude, fluid combat, and great atmospheric locations.
Though a Devil May Cry HD catch-up pack was recently released on 360 and PS3, with 5 games already made, the 6th became, as is the current trend, a reboot of sorts called DmC (Devil May Cry).
It takes place in an alternate universe, with a alternate (dark-haired) Dante, who can use angel mode or devil mode to combat the seemingly sentient Limbo City.
There looks to be the same attitude, fluid combat and great atmospheric locations as those before it and a good cure for shooter-itis, if you are needing a change of gameplay style (I know I am).
The game goes on sale next week for 360/ PS3/ PC.
Here’s how you win:
WIN!!! Details here

OXCGN’s Resident Evil 6 Review
Sexual Objectification, Next Gen Heroes, and…Pizza
© 2012 TheVixenGamer
This game is fun.
If you like suspense-filled, zombie slaying, shoot em up, kick ‘em down fuelled games you’re going to love Resident Evil 6.
Leon beholds a special place in my heart. The man is seriously fine (because ladies if you’re going to be in love with a fictional male character and have salacious fantasies about him make sure he doesn’t sparkle).
I feel bad whenever I manage to get Leon killed in the game and even worse when Helena screams “Noooo”.
