    E3 2009: Hands On First Look at League of Legends: Clash of Fates by Riot Games

    One of the parties that I attended at this years E3 was hosted by Riot Games to show off their new online multiplayer action RPG, League of Legends: Clash of Fates.  Here you play as Summoners with an avatar tied to the player’s account that will advance and level up over time.  You can play as over 40 champions as well as choose from hundreds of items for your avatar.  What is great is that there are no monthly subscription fees so you can play online as  well as get frequent updates for the game. Riot Games is a Los Angeles based game developer and publisher made up of about 40 employees, many of them veteran game developers.  They set out to create this MMO PvP title and have introduced some fun and unique characters like Nunu, the Yeti Rider – who looks like a little boy riding on the

    First Look at new games from D3

    D3 has some fun new games coming out for younger gamers.  If you’re like me, even if you don’t have kids, you often find yourself mesmerized by some of the new animated shows aimed at kids on Cartoon Network.  Now, you can check out a few games linked with some of the popular shows like Ben 10 and The Secret Saturdays. This fall, you’ll be able to check out Ben 10: Alien Force Vilgax Attacks, The Secret Saturdays: Beasts of the 5th Sun, and Astro Boy: The Videogame all for the Wii, PS2, PSP & Nintendo DS. In the second Ben 10 Alien Force game: Vilgax Attacks you’ll play as Ben, in what feels like part 3rd person puzzle game and part role-playing game.  For the first time, players will control Ben and 10 of his Alien forms from the Omnitrix.  You’ll take Ben through an original story created for the

    E3 2009 Demo – Mass Effect 2

    By now, you may have already heard some of the big news surrounding Mass Effect 2 from EA and BioWare.  We had a chance at E3 to sit and watch the game play demo and see some of the exciting story that’ll be in the new game.  One of the coolest additions to the game is the ability to continue conversations while in motion, so there’s no more stopping to chat and losing time on your way somewhere – and those choices will let you have a bigger impact during cut scenes as well, letting you choose what to say, and how your adventure with Commander Shepard turns out.  I especially think that the interrupt feature is a nice touch – which was demo’d to us by the Commander stopping a discussion by shoving a guy out of a building. And one of the most surprising and sort of revealing parts

    E3 2009 – Our Beatles Rock Band

    There was a lot of excitement at the Microsoft Press Conference when Olivia Harrison, Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney appeared on stage to talk about The Beatles Rock Band coming out on 09/09 of this year, the same day The Beatles music collection is being rereleased.  For those of us that are fans of The Beatles, imagine the excitement of getting to play the game several months before it’s release.  Trina, April and I had a chance to get our hands on both the Wii and Xbox 360 versions of the game during E3.  We didn’t get a lot of time, just a song on each system, and if you’re a Rock Band fan I don’t need to explain how the game plays, because there isn’t a lot of difference.  What’s really awesome about The Beatles Rock Band experience is the way they’ve integrated the look and feel
