There are more easygoing introductory MMO experiences out there than the one offered by Guild Wars 2. You can find them in games like Club Penguin and Free Realms. They’re not that much mellower, though. And before you Guild Wars fans bristle at the association, rest assured there’s not a stitch of negativity in the comparison.

The rub here is that Guild Wars 2 does ease newcomers into the experience, but good-natured teasing aside, the way it does so is so beautifully streamlined that you always feel encouragement and support instead of pedant hand-holding. Bits of interface are skillfully explained by condensed and ephemeral tooltips, skills are previewed right before gaining them and placed in toolbars automatically in an order that makes sense. Guild Wars 2 feels wants you to have a good time because you’re new to game, not in spite of it. Perhaps ... Read more »

Having been born of conflict and strife, we really wanted Modern Warfare 3 to be a resplendent Phoenix rising from the ashes of its progenitor’s petty squabbles. And maybe it was at one point, who knows. But judging from the fifteen minutes of Survival Mode we played at Eurogamer Expo, it’s been thoroughly sprayed with fire retardant.

Don’t get us wrong, the new game mode is everything you’d expect. It ticks all the right boxes and definitely furnishes a solid co-op gameplay experience for two intrepid Spec Ops wannabes. But if it’s all that new, why exactly did it feel so familiar? The fact that it’s basically Gears of War’s Horde mode with Counterstrike’s weapon store could have something to do with it. But plenty of well worn game modes have seen some retooling to emerge on the other side a shining example of what a bit of spit and polish will do ... Read more »

Starting out the Arkham City demo by giving you control over Catwoman was the first shrewd move Rocksteady made. Padding out that leather suit with a downright distracting amount of simulated badonkadonk would be the second. But you need to get up pretty early in the morning to pull the wool over our eyes. There was no way we weren’t going to notice that there wasn’t much of a difference between Batman and Catwoman’s combat mechanics. On the plus side, there was no way were going to care, either.

Because even if it’s used for both characters, the new combat system is a sheer and utter joy to play with. Arkham Aylum’s fights were at their finest when you got in an unbroken string of hits and counters that had the pointy eared detective spinning in a perfect storm of ass-kicking until everyone not currently pursuing vigilantism as a career option was k ...

Last week Sprint announced that they would be putting a data cap on their mobile hotspot plans, many thought that the company would follow suit with their data on their smartphone plans.

It would appear that Sprint has decided to continue to offer unlimited data on its smartphone plans, and one reason for this could be to differentiate itself against AT&T and Verizon if it gets the new iPhone 5 when it is announced next month.

Both AT&T and Verizon removed their unlimited data plans, so Sprint keeping unlimited data could set it apart from its competitors, especially if the company gets the iPhone 5, which looks pretty likely considering everything we have heard over the last month or so.
