#8 Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception (PS3)

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment — Developer: Naughty Dog

Naughty Dog’s flagship series hits another high note with the third chapter of Nathan Drake’s adventures. The organic storytelling makes this something every gamer owes to themselves to experience. Uncharted 3 delivers the thrill of an Indiana Jones movie and more twists and turns than a ride at Six Flags. Some parts of this game will leave the gamer breathless and pointing at the screen while asking the person next to him, “Did you see that?” As if that weren’t enough, after the credits roll and the brilliant colors fade away, there’s still a fantastic multiplayer game to experience.

Game of the Year 2010 – Red Dead Redemption (360/PS3)

Publisher: Rockstar – Developer: Rockstar San Diego

Review By: Eric Stuckart

Even though the game’s creepy vibe wore off, Singularity plays out like a compilation of gaming’s greatest shooter gimmicks of all time, and boy is it an enjoyable ride. But we’ll get to that in a moment. (more…)


Pads & Panels correspondent Chris Park was busy on the show floor all day yesterday. He stopped by the booths of Sega, Activision and Tecmo, as well as a few others. Here is what he had to report…


I arrived early to the Sega press appointment and was quickly shuffled into the Aliens vs Predator demo session. In the session, they were showing a demo of the Marines campaign, while they had Predator multiplayer on the floor. The game takes place 30 years post Alien 3. The story is a colony on a remote planet disappears from contact. It turns out there is a Predator pyramid on the same planet, complete with Alien eggs, much like the first Aliens vs. Predator movie. They send in the Space Marines. (more…)
