Anybody who knows anything about games may remember Dead Space, a survival horror game by EA that was a cross between Resident Evil and Doom 3. The game recieved critical acclaim, encouraging the developers to create a sequel. And guess what? The demo is out in two weeks.


If you haven’t already added it to your queue, now’s your chance to experience some intense and gritty action with the new Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days demo. With a totally revamped visual-style, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is looking to add a whole new sense of tension to the action-shooter genre. “Kane and Lynch face the consequences when a simple job gone wrong sets off a desperate and frantic struggle to escape the entire Shanghai underworld. Ground- breaking art direction, relentless action gameplay and innovative multiplayer redefine the action shooter experience and positions Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days as the standout shooter of 2010.”

Jimmy Fallon is continuing to be relevant to the gaming industry by getting on the developers at Treyarch to show off Call of Duty: Black Ops live on his show tomorrow night. Fallon’s show was also the place where Kinect was first shown on television back when it was known as Natal, and also had Cliff Bleszinski for an interview talking about Epic Games and Gears of War 3. Treyarch’s appearance will either be the revealment of something big, or just a testament to Fallon’s geekiness. Late Night with Jimmy Fallon airs tomorrow at 12:30am EST.

Any owners of Halo 3: ODST wll be happy to know that you can now download the Halo: Reach beta off of Xbox Live RIGHT NOW! My download is currently at 6% and running at an extremely slow pace, so I’m going to assume a lot of people have been waiting for this game to come out. I’m not the biggest Halo fan in the world (I’m not even sure if the above image is ODST or Reach) but I can’t wait to get my hands on the beta.

Players who found the Splinter Cell: Conviction demo too easy will be happy to know Ubisoft have tweaked the difficulty profoundly.

Mark your calendars, pop an ollie, and feed your dog – Skate, Skate 3, and skating fans can get their grind on come April 15th, nearly a month before the game hits stores. The demo will take you through the University District of Port Caverton, a presumable skaters paradise that’s just asking to be grinded. Players can learn to ride from Coach Frank at the District’s Skate School, then either ride around on their own or face other players in online challenges.

The recently released demo of Splinter Cell: Conviction was a pleasant surprise, and whilst it had a mixed reception, it’s one of the highest rated demo’s on the Xbox Live marketplace. It’s quite interesting then, how Ubisoft creative director Maxime Beland stated it was a ‘nerve wracking’ process.
