LAS VEGAS -- Last year at CES, Razer showed us their amazing high-powered Windows gaming tablet code named Project Fiona with a TBA shipping date of sometime in 2012. Well it's 2013 and Razer has finally launched their long awaited, much hyped super gaming tablet and it is every bit as amazing as we expected. Packing up to an Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GTX 640 dedicated graphics card all in a package just over 2 pounds, the new Razer Edge gaming tablet has the specs gamers want at a size that makes gaming truly portable. The Edge also has optional game controller and keyboard docking accessories. We caught up with Razer's Brian Jang to give us the low down and show off the Edge in this exclusive video interview from the floor of CES 2013.

After being released this September, the 3D 'endless runner' Bust-N-Rush by Techtonic Games has undergone a few changes since we last took a look at it.

A price drop of 75% is now in effect, bringing the price from $19.99 to $4.99. To take advantage of this you can head over to the Techtonic Games website to pick up a truly fun and addictive game, or at the very least try out their new demo. Bust-N-Rush was worth the money at $19.99, and at $4.99 it's a steal.

When I was initially introduced to Fractured Soul I was extremely excited. Not because of the exciting platforming, or the nostalgic difficulty akin to that of the NES, but because for once I found a title on the 3DS Store that actually brought something new to the table. The innovation behind Fractured Soul’s gameplay enticed the Mega Man/Mario junkie inside of me to climb out and play a game that lovingly marries puzzling, platforming and shooting elements into a fantastic (and cheap!) experience.

No matter your age and no matter your gender take a moment to think back to your childhood toys. Remember that one teddy bear that you had? Some of you may even have had more than one. Now imagine that same cute and cuddly teddy bear as a homicidal murder weapon wielding manic whose goal is to dismember every other living creature in sight! That in a nut shell is “Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise”. “Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise” is the downloadable sequel to 2010’s “Naughty Bear”. “Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise” takes the best parts of its predecessor and adds a ton of new features. Do these new features make the game worth downloading? Let’s take a stab at it in our review.

Last June we reported on Dreamworks Entertainment winning the movie rights to the Electronic Art's racing franchise, Need for Speed. Up until now we didn't know who was going to be starring in the movie adaptation until now. According to insidemovies, Aaron Paul, the two-time Emmy winner, has signed on as the lead in DreamWorks’ upcoming feature film Need For Speed.  Paul is most know for his work in AMC's Breaking Bad series and has rumored to star in many films after Breaking Bad ends next fall. But this will mark his second movie he has signed on for after the series concludes.

A blinding blue blur, collecting tons of rings, spouting witty catch phrases, and defeating Dr. Eggman (or Dr. Robotnic depending on the version) are all things you think of when you hear the name Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic is one of the most recognizable faces of the console generation in the 90’s. The franchise has spawned everything from cartoons to comic books. It has also spawned a list of atrocities sequels and spin off games. “Sonic Adventure 2 HD” is a reminder of when Sonic stopped being about speed, and stopped being fun.

Tarsier and Double Eleven Studios have done a fantastic job in bringing a LittleBigPlanet experience to the Vita that rivals that of the "main" releases on the PlayStation 3.

There is an old saying that goes “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” What many people do not know is this famous quote has been paraphrased.  It originally went “If it ain’t broke, or Double Dragon, don’t fix it.” Okay, maybe it didn’t originally go like that, but it’s too bad, because Double Dragon Neon is a reboot to a franchise that should have been left alone.

There have been times in history where near the end of a console’s life cycle, a great game is created. A game that challenges and rewards the player while providing a story that the gamer wants to see continue into the next generation of consoles. With the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 currently nearing the end of their current lifespans, is “Dishonored” the final original gem of this console generation? The answer is… Yes.

The Sega Saturn was home to a rather whimsical set of releases, many of which strayed from the norm in ways the general public probably wasn't ready for. Knowing gamers, Sega's bizarre, colorful, and surreal NiGHTS into Dreams was a member of the strange game camp, attracting players with a purple-clad protagonist and the promise of navigating dreams.

It’s hard to argue with people when they say Skyrim has been made so simple for casual audiences when Bethesda releases such minimal DLC at a rather steep cost for what you get.

NBA Live 13 has already been canceled by Electronic Arts. Needing more time to error out the problems that game had, a repeat occurrence that set back the NBA Live franchise another year. It's been since 2009 since EA has published a NBA basketball simulator, allowing 2k Sports to seize control of the market. It was previously rumored that NBA Live 13 was going to launch for Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network, but no official word was given from EA on the matter, however Microsoft community leader, Larry Hryb might have just confirmed the direction the game was heading in.

The whole of the video game industry had a bit of a get-together this weekend at the Eurogamer expo in London. With more than 80 games playable on the show floor, the exhibition was giving the public and the professionals a good glimpse at what we can all expect from the few months ahead of us. GamerLive.TV was there, talking to players and developers, playing the games, chatting up the lightly dressed virgin pin-ups and, overall, looking for the future hits that everyone will need to play in the next 6 months.  In the next few days, I will have a look at the top 5 most awaited AAA games, why everyone is talking about them and if they really deserve the hype. But there are some excellent and very creative productions that you might not have heard of or might not have paid attention to, but that are definitely worth playing.

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is the video game your grandmother hates. A weird postmodern jumble of gratuitous gore, gaudy colors and vulgar creatures. Here a robot-legged panda will shoot at you with bouncing tic-tac-shaped lasers, as elsewhere a huge Spartan-masked scorpion spews waves of neon-bordered playing cards from its stinger. In this 2D platformer, your victims—98 more abominations like the ones above—must pay the price for having enjoyed humiliating photos of you in the bathtub. Anything goes.

The Spy Hunter franchise was a cult last console generation hit. The speedy arcadic feel mixed in with blowing objectives away in unrealistic ways delighted audiences in 2001 when it was last seen. The Saliva heavy rock metal theme combined with Peter Gunn’s Spy Hunter theme made the core gameplay experiences enjoyable. Since then we haven’t seen another entry until now. Spy Hunter is returning to the Playstation Vita with a new theme scored by Ryan Shore.

The original Torchlight was a shining beacon in a sea of samey dungeon crawlers for those looking for a suitable Diablo replacement. It provided an alternative to the deeper, darker recesses of Blizzard's triumphant cult classic while still serving up the same addictive looting and monster-crushing goodness we quickly became used to with the various dungeons and catacombs of yesteryear.

Dungeon crawling games are definitely coming out of the woodwork as of late.  Diablo III no doubt has its fans, and I'm pretty sure Torchlight II has a huge following as well, judging by game sales.  And let's not forget the titles that are still fun to play on Xbox Live Arcade, including the original Torchlight and the sleeper hit Crimson Alliance, which is even better playing alongside a friend.  So, with that, we're trying to figure out what made Focus Home Interactive think that R.A.W.: Realms of Ancient War would stand out, especially considering the problems it possesses.

Inquisitor by Czech developer Cinemax has quite an interesting history. It originally started development around the early 2000’s and was just released a few years ago in Czech and just now has been translated into english. It’s really strange that Cinemax decided to stay with this style of game for so long. Let me explain.

Capcom’s “Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collection” celebrates the silver anniversary of the successful fighting franchise. Packed with games, DLC, Blu-Rays, and exclusive collectables, the set is impressive but will it please the hardcore “Street Fighter” fanatics?

BOSTON -- The Assassin's Creed franchise will not only be getting a console game but also a Sony Playstation PS Vita-powered handheld version in Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, but this one is with a female assassin Aveline and based in New Orleans paralleling the time period of the American Revolution of Assassin's Creed III assassin Connor. We talked to Assassin's Creed Liberation writer Richard Farrese about Aveline as he previewed what we can expect with the handheld version of Assassin's Creed.
