Hey Everybody, it's Monday Night Combat's Loveable Mascot, Bullseye! Kill Him. Kill Him Now!

HIGH As Captain Spark, leaping in at the last minute and preventing an enemy player from using the annihilator.

LOW Trying to play as the Gunslinger and being mostly useless.

WTF Staring in awe at the people that have figured out how to dominate everyone with Leo.

Max Payne 3 Second Opinion

Payneful

HIGH Soaring through the air, blowing away dozens of gangsters with my dual pistols like a John Woo hero.

LOW Did he seriously just shave his head as a disguise?

WTF Why doesn't Max just shootdodge out of all these situations where a few unarmored guys are holding a gun on him?

The Bride of Frankenstein

HIGH A slow-motion, high-caliber rifle round breaching an enemy's skull is terrifyingly beautiful.

LOW Anyone else tired of morally mucked-up shooter heroes?

WTF Devil May Cry 3

To clear the crowded sky

Early on, Mass Effect establishes that the Citadel Council forced humanity to establish colonies in dangerous parts of the galaxy, then refused to offer aid when those colonies were inevitably attacked. The existing power structure is only interested in humanity's ability to serve as a buffer against its enemies, not in helping us thrive. Despite all this, humans get a comparatively sweet deal.

The most interesting part of Take-Two's 2012 fiscal year earnings conference call covers what was—and what wasn't—said regarding Grand Theft Auto V.

Armchair Analysis: Three possible causes for BioShock Infinite's delay to February 2013

BioShock Infinite Screenshot

The announcement of the BioShock Infinite delay to late February of 2013 doesn't surprise me in the slightest. The original October 2012 release date seemed a bit risky, given the already-impressive lineup of software that is slated to ship near the same time. Assassin's Creed III, Halo 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Wii U hardware, and other games would likely have eaten into potential sales for BioShock Infinite. Would these other software releases have led to disappointing sales for Infinite?

Extra Credits: TransGaming

The guys at Extra Credits take a quick look at an idea that has been on the minds of game developers and publishers for years now. It's dubbed "transgaming" and it lets fans of different genres all play and exist within the same game world. There is a lot of potential there, so have a listen.

Fission Mailed

HIGH Seeing the Raccoon Police station rendered in gorgeous HD for the first time ever.

LOW Firing a full clip of assault rounds into a hunter as it yawns indifferently.

WTF There's a "special" vision mode designed to make zombies invisible to the player.

Binary Domain Second Opinion

Better Than Human

Binary Domain Screenshot

HIGH Every setpiece.

LOW Not realizing I could do a certain action, causing me to miss a key event.

WTF Rachael is a refreshingly atypical female squadmate. Why isn't there more of her?
