February seems to be a huge month for EA, with the release of Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3, both the final installments in their respective trilogies, and both drastically changing the direction of the series.
Where one game moves away from the slow and horrific corridors of space to appeal to a broader audience, the other tries to combine the better features of the previous installments to please its fans.

He then was then blown away by the well implemented new co-op element.
The co-op experience is a separate one from playing the game on your own, with each character doing separate tasks, including one of you playing in a hallucination mode, while the other protects you.
You can read his assessment here.
We’ll have to wait for our final play-though for the review to finally decide, but in the meantime it’s time to once again reward the readers for supporting us so well!

This is probably a sentence that you’ll be thinking to yourself over and over again when you get a chance to play the Dead Space 3 demo. Or, if you’re anything like me, you’ll be screaming it at the TV in a mad panic just trying to stay alive yourself.
The demo gives you two options to whet your appetite before the 7th of February when the game is actually released.
You can go at it alone and give the single player a try, or play the same section of the game with a buddy – or in my case, some random stranger on Xbox Live.

I myself have spent an ungodly amount of time with the game, racked up my fair share of kills, and had some fun times playing together with mates.
Personally, I feel that Premium, more precisely the expansions, have been key to the longevity and success of BF3.
Sure, the whole concept and execution of Premium has been debated before, and no doubt continues to be a hot topic among online gamers, but this sort of model seems to be the future of DLC map packs and expansions.
With that, the fourth and latest expansion for BF3 has been released, titled Aftermath.
The new expansion provides new maps, vehicles, as well as a new game mode and weapon for players to experience. It also allows me to make really bad Earthquake-related puns throughout this review. Read the rest of this entry
Time to Light the FUSE: Insomniac’s ‘Overstrike’ Game Revealed
OXCGN’s Hands-on look

FUSE, formerly known as Overstrike, has come a long way since its inception and with its unique take on co-op gameplay and weapon enhancements, it looks at making a name for itself to clearly stand out from the crowd.
If a single player campaign isn’t what you’re interested in, FUSE has an in-depth cooperative mode that is heavily dependent on teamwork that can make or break your success.
While it may resemble the likes of other cover-based third person shooter Gears of War, it is anything but.
