DUST 514 is a free to play massively online FPS produced by CCP Games in their Shanghai studio. The game is only at the Beta stage but can be played on the PSN already. Taking place in the EVE universe and rich of its very large background history, vast star systems and millions of player controlling thousands of corporations and other pirate clans, DUST has a lot to answer for as the expectations of many, could not be higher.


One of the highlights from this year's PAX East event was a huge standee for Ubisoft's upcoming Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, featuring plenty of action from the co-op side of things.  In the demo, players could team up to defend their home base from invading enemies on all sides, using their various tools of the trade, weapons and accessories alike, to their advantage as they got the jump on their adversaries.  This will be a huge part of the game when it ships later this month for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.


When you think "Batman" and "video game", you usually think of something dark, foreboding and completely involving, like last year's stellar release of Batman: Arkham City.  But you don't really think shooter, nor anything that goes tongue firmly in cheek, do you?  That's why it's so fascinating to see Monolith, the developers behind the F.E.A.R. series, go against type and create a game like Gotham City Impostors.  Not only is it something you'd never expect from the DC Comics Universe, but, holy rusted metal Batman, it's actually fun.


Gears of War 3 players have been promptly rewarded with outstanding DLC thus far, including free-for-all content and the fun add-on RAAM's Shadow.  Now they can look forward to some fresh new content in 2012, as Microsoft and Epic Games have announced the new Fenix Rising pack, slated for release on January 17.  And you're getting a lot here.


When Konami released Zombie Apocalypse for download a couple of years ago, it brought forth an interesting – if somewhat limited – arena shooting game where the goal was to stay alive while battling hordes of the undead.  The sequel, Never Die Alone, expands on that with bigger areas and some personality-laden characters, benefiting as a result – even if it is still limited in the long run.


Earlier this evening at the New York Comic Con event, a Halo panel was held, where 343 Industries discussed some of the newer features that would be going into the game.  Not surprisingly, these features are actually Kinect enabled, which means you'll be able to use your motion-sensing device for some cool things.  While they aren't entirely gameplay related, they are interesting, to say the least.


Dead Island came out earlier this week for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and several thousands of players thronged to the tropical resort to do damage to all kinds of undead.  The game is a big hit, and it's about to expand even further with the announcement of an upcoming DLC pack called Bloodbath Arena, due for release later this month.

Certainly one of the biggest games of the year will be Modern Warfare 3. With Call of Duty's track record of hitting huge sales numbers, how could it not be? The third installment of the Modern Warfare series looks to be the biggest as the battle is being brought to some of the world's biggest cities such as New York, Paris, and London. It will also feature a brand-new Survival mode within Spec Ops, taking the Zombies mode from previous games, but giving the enemies guns so they can fight back. After getting a chance to play Survival mode, it really is a much more fun experience, and a little tougher too.
David Jaffe came under a lot of criticism for the first God of War game due to what people claimed to be a blatant copy of Devil May Cry. Though you could look at it from a negative perspective, you can't blame him for copying it as Devil May Cry gave new life to the action genre. The game went on to have three more installments, making it a staple franchise for the Playstation 2. Dante is back to hunt down the demons that plague the world, but you may not recognize him as he got a little bit of a makeover.
