This fall Sony Online Entertainment will launch DC Universe Online, an MMORPG for the PS3 and PC. It allows players to create their own super heroes as well as play classic DC Comics in player-vs-player battles.
Comic Con Preview: Vindictus
Massively multiplayer action games are rare as it is. What's even rarer are MMO action games that are free to play. The rarest of all, though, are free MMO action games that look as good Vindictus.
Comic Con Preview: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
The video game Spider-Man has almost always been an agile webslinger who wears a bright red and blue suit and swings from skyscraper to skyscraper. However, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions developer Beenox wants to pay tribute to the other incarnations of Peter Parker.
Comic Con Preview: Rush'N Attack: Ex-Patriot
Ex-Patriot isn't very faithful to the arcade game that inspired it but I'm glad. Developer Vatra has taken a frustrating side-scroller and turned it into a accessible and surprisingly deep stealth game. It seems like a smart break from tradition to me.
Comic Con Preview: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
The demo proved that Lords of Shadow can faithfully replicate the mechanics of God of War. I'm curious if and how it breaks the mold, though.
Comic Con Preview: Saw II: Flesh And Blood
Saw II: Flesh And Blood had a lot to prove to me. I'm always skeptical of games based on movie licenses, even when I like the licenses. The Saw films never bowled me over so right from the start my relationship with this video game was strained.
Comic Con: Darkspore Gameplay Details Revealed
The announcement panel of Darkspore was hampered slightly by the fact that EA had announced the game earlier this week. However, developer Maxis had plenty of fresh gameplay details to impart.
Comic Con: Darkspore Development Assisted By BioWare
Darkspore is an action RPG, a genre which doesn't seem like the forte of Spore developer Maxis. However, during the game's panel at Comic Con, the team tried to assure gamers they knew what they were doing.
Comic Con: Epic Mickey Tales Of The Wasteland Comics Coming Soon

Weekly Recap July 24th - Comic Con Edition: Trailers, Screenshots and Announcements
New previews, sneak peeks, trailers, screenshots and more from this year's Comic Con are featured in this edition of a very jam packed Weekly Recap.
Comic Con Preview: God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta
Chains is regarded as one of the best games ever developed for the PSP so Ready at Dawn is really competing against themselves, here. That sort of situation can result in some laziness on the part of developers but the team behind Ghost of Sparta seems intent on pushing the limits of the platform.
Comic Con Preview: GoldenEye 007 For Wii
The Wii version of GoldenEye 007 is not just a port of the Nintendo 64 version. While Activision's no doubt banking on nostalgia to move a few copies, the fact is that there's been numerous changes.
Comic Con Preview: Gears Of War 3 Beast Mode
Horde was the most popular multiplayer mode from Gears of War 2 so it seems natural that they'd add to it in Gears 3. However, instead of merely tweaking Horde mode, Epic Games is adding a whole new way to enjoy the action.
Comic Con Preview: James Bond 007: Blood Stone
Bizarre Creations' game isn't based on a previous Bond film but it's clear they're trying to deliver an experience akin to that. It's not just a matter of voice acting; they seem to have created gameplay that's diverse enough to accurately depict the many talents of Bond.
