Titanfall hands-on preview: The FPS that reminds us why we love shooters

Titanfall hands-on preview: The FPS that reminds us why we love shooters

At the Eurogamer Expo, I got to spend some hands-on time with Respawn’s Titanfall and to put it curtly, I have to say this game was simply amazing. It feels like the Call of Duty 4 of next-gen; the battles are fast-paced but you’ve always got a second to get your bearings straight. And the guns feel like they actually do damage. The map we played on was split into two ways. We could battle on the lower areas, this would create [...]

Fable Remake hands-on preview: Broken and laggy but pretty

Fable Remake hands-on preview: Broken and laggy but pretty

One of the games I have been looking forward to is the remake of Fable, but after getting some hands-on time at the Eurogamer Expo, I can safely say, it really needs work. Important to note though that the demo I played was very early code. The game lagged frequently, the buttons didn’t respond quickly and it crashed constantly. These are issues that I really hope they resolve before they launch the game. To be honest, I imagine Lionhead are smart [...]

Batman: Arkham Origins hands-on preview:  Short but brutal

Batman: Arkham Origins hands-on preview: Short but brutal

At the Eurogamer Expo, I got a quick  hands-on preview of Batman: Arkham Origins. So, how does it fare in this short playthrough? Read on to find out. The game’s premise follows Batman in a struggle against pretty much every villain in Gotham city looking to kill the Bat under a hit put out by Black Mask. The demo, though short, was very impressive. An objective was placed out straight off the bat in the demo, but as I went towards it, other [...]

Beyond: Two Souls hands-on preview: Supernatural smashings

Beyond: Two Souls hands-on preview: Supernatural smashings

I’ll be upfront, Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain was one of the main reasons for me buying a PlayStation 3. Microsoft were no doubt kicking themselves when they veto’d on Heavy Rain over that “kidnapping” controversy, and I have no doubt they’ll be kicking themselves even harder, as Beyond: Two Souls is equally as amazing. Beyond: Two Souls follows a young girl called Jodie (Played by Ellen Page), who has a “weird” friend called Aiden. By weird, I mean Aiden is not human [...]

Splinter Cell: Blacklist hands-on preview: Three ways to prowl

Splinter Cell: Blacklist hands-on preview: Three ways to prowl

Recently, I was fortunate enough to get some hands-on time with Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and here’s my initial impression of it. Now, I’ll admit I’ve never been the best when it comes to Splinter Cell, but I was told Blacklist would be different because the player can run through the game in three different ways. Fortunately for me, I managed to try all three styles and have split the preview to detail exactly that. One very important thing to note is [...]

Race The Sun preview: Endless adrenaline pumping fun!

Race The Sun preview: Endless adrenaline pumping fun!

Race The Sun is an upcoming infinite racing game. Developed by Flippfly, an indie developer, the game promises endless fun. We’re the pilot of a solar-powered craft and are racing against time to prevent the sun from setting. We can collect boosts to increase our speed and cover as much distance as we possibly can. Each level has various obstacles in our path that add an extra challenge. The aim? To get the highest possible score. This is one of [...]

Saints Row IV hands on preview: “What is love?”

Saints Row IV hands on preview: “What is love?”

I was fortunate enough to be able to get my hands on a Saints Row IV preview build over the weekend. Our good friends over at Deep Silver were nice enough to send a code our way. I spent about seven hours with the game and thought you would want to know how it is. Don’t worry, it’s awesome. You can listen to a very special Fourth of July “Let’s Get Pixelated” to hear more analysis of my hands-on experience [...]

Need For Speed: Rivals E3 hands-on preview: The Hot Pursuit DLC that wasn’t

Need For Speed: Rivals E3 hands-on preview: The Hot Pursuit DLC that wasn’t

Chris Anderson here once again; last week I headed to E3 in LA to play and record three new EA games for Pixel Enemy. One of those was Need for Speed: Rivals, the latest installment in the driving series. Before I talk about that let me digress for awhile. Do you guys remember when games didn’t have yearly sequels? When the next series was 3-4 years away and we didn’t have 20 dubstep trailers and knew absolutely everything about the [...]

Battlefield 4 hands-on: This is the Battlefield game you’ve been waiting for

Battlefield 4 hands-on: This is the Battlefield game you’ve been waiting for

This is Chris Anderson, formerly of Don’t Revive Me Bro and last week I had the extreme honor to represent Pixel Enemy at E3 in L.A. I was flown out to play Battlefield 4 hands-on and record exclusive gameplay for PE, which you can see above. The game was set-up as a 66 player multiplayer PC LAN (64 players and 2 commanders). We got situated, checked out the kits, and dropped into the game. As you’ve seen from the trailers, Battlefield 4 looks incredible. From the water, [...]

Remember Me hands-on preview: Remembering other games

Remember Me hands-on preview: Remembering other games

I got hands-on with Remember Me at the MCM Expo and we’re here to give you our thoughts on the game so far. The game is set in the year 2084, Paris has become Neo-Paris and looks like present day Tokyo, lots of neon lights and signs. There are some very familiar platforming segments in the game that have you climbing up the signs and walls, it felt a whole lot like Tomb Raider or Uncharted; but it was well-thought out and [...]

Hands on with Lost Planet 3; don’t leave this game out in the cold

Hands on with Lost Planet 3; don’t leave this game out in the cold

Lost Planet 3 has been playable at a few events, but this was the first time I got to try the actual start of the game, where we get to meet a lot of the characters and learn about E.D.N III. I’ve been a fan of the Lost Planet series for awhile, I even enjoyed Lost Planet 2! Crazy, right? This game introduces a new protagonist to the series, Jim Peyton who does odd jobs for money; in this case it’s [...]

Hands-On With the Deadpool Game, crude fun and insane

Hands-On With the Deadpool Game, crude fun and insane

While at the MCM Expo I got hands on with the Deadpool game. This was the first time that the general public could get hands on worldwide. The game is as insane and wacky as Deadpool fans would want it to be. It opens up with Deadpool in his house, where he is trying to get a game of himself made, but the game companies didn’t like any of his ideas. So he plants explosives in their offices, in hopes of [...]

The Last of Us Hands-On Preview: Not the last I’ll see of this

The Last of Us Hands-On Preview: Not the last I’ll see of this

I got hands-on with The Last of Us this week, this brutal stealth action horror game is a force to be reckoned with, the blend of exciting melee combat, gunplay and harsh landscapes make this game stand out uniquely above other games, in both gameplay and graphics. The Last of Us is Naughty Dog’s most recent IP, and is not a zombie game. They were adamant on making that clear, instead the game uses fungus to spread infection. The fungus [...]

Hands on preview: FUSE, is four player four times the fun?

Hands on preview: FUSE, is four player four times the fun?

I recently managed to get hands on with FUSE, a four player third person shooter developed by Insomniac Games, the guys behind Resistance and Ratchet & Clank. But have Insomniac Games dropped the ball this time? Hype for this game has been… well, non-existent. The game follows a team of four agents, and while the story was understandably limited in the preview, it began to get a lot deeper. The team begin to find themselves having some investment in the people they’re fighting. But details were [...]

GTA V previews are in: it’s “radically different”

GTA V previews are in: it’s “radically different”

Welcome to Los Santos. It all went down at Rockstar HQ this week where the company showcased the upcoming, and much anticipated Grand Theft Auto V.  Kotaku reports that the center-focus of event was the three-character system. We’re all familiar with the names now. Michael. Franklin. Trevor. The landmass of GTA V is 3.5 times the size of Red Dead Redemption. That is not all. The game also includes underwater areas. Overall, GTA V is bigger than GTA: San Andreas, GTA: IV and Read Dead Redemption put together! GTA V also features a [...]

Pixel Preview – Defiance (Beta)  

Pixel Preview – Defiance (Beta)

  Hey Pixel Nation, This weekend Will and I got the chance to play through the Defiance PlayStation 3 beta. Above is a short conversation we had about the things we liked, disliked, and thought needed improvement….we also talk about SyFy’s Robot Combat League …. because, why not? Last week we gave away over 100 Defiance beta codes here on the site. So hopefully you guys have gotten a chance to jump in and play as well. We would love to hear what you guys thought [...]

Battlefield 4: I Need You More Than Ever

Battlefield 4: I Need You More Than Ever

In front of a packed AMC theater crowd in downtown San Francisco Patrick Soderlund takes and sets the stage for one of the most anticipated titles of 2013. With no formalities or BS he simply says, “Here is Battlefield 4” The camera sinks deep into the cold dark ocean and we can hear the faint sound of Bonnie Tyler’s 1983 hit Total Eclipse of the Heart playing softly in the background. Once upon a time I was falling in love [...]

SimCity preview: Why it’s worth a look

SimCity preview: Why it’s worth a look

Is shooter fatigue setting in? If so, you might want to take a peek at EA’s upcoming reboot of SimCity. If for some reason you’re not familiar with the game, we’ve embedded a video below to give you an overview of what’s in store. Narrated and produced by Pixel Enemy content provider CANjamin000, he talks about what makes the beta interesting and why he’s looking forward to the final game. Take a gander as he creates an entire city in [...]
