Chris Roberts and his team on Star Citizen were at PAX East to show off Star Citizen’s dogfighting module. You may have watched this footage already, but now it’s in super hi-def and the crowd isn’t totally drowning out the audience this time around either.
I need this game all over me.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster sold a whole lot of copies in March

What can I do for you? I can’t hear you. Square Enix hears you, and according to research analyst David Gibson, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster sold 208,000 copies during the month after its March 18 release. That’s a lot of copies. Maybe it’s more than amount of times I cringed at the “Y.R.P. in position” scene in Final Fantasy X-2, as pictured above.

Let's watch 50 minutes of H1Z1, AKA Sony's version of DayZ

Sony Online Entertainment is making an open world zombie survival game called H1Z1. Yeah, it’s blatantly going for the whole DayZ approach. You can’t really blame them though. It’s a genre people are really craving for, as evidence by how well DayZ and Rust have been selling.

Read the writing on the wall with Invisible, Inc.

Turn-based tactical espionage. Those words were all it took to sell me on the idea of Invisible, Inc. Going into the PAX demo, I knew I would have to be cunning, thoughtful, and sneaky if I wanted to successfully steal intelligence and make it out alive.
As it turns out, I overestimated how cunning, thoughtful, and sneaky I am. Invisible, Inc. requires proper espionage; players who run in and try to blow stuff up like James Bond will not make it far. Even those who play cautiously will often find themselves …
