E3 2005: Kameo: Elements of Power
game: E3 2005: Kameo: Elements of Power
preview | 05/27/05 | Eric Bodrero
One of the Xbox 360 titles that Microsoft was demonstrating at this year's E3 was Kameo: Elements of Power. Originally announced for the GameCube, then the Xbox, and finally settling on the Xbox 360 as an exclusive, this massive adventure title will help launch the new system. With huge battles involving thousands of enemy A.I. and a style that looks to target the Zelda-fan demographic, Kameo is one to watch. Check out our E3 2005 preview.

Conker: Live & Reloaded
game: Conker: Live & Reloaded
preview | 12/26/04 | Chris Martin
The trash-talkin', poo-whompin', Tediz slaughterin' squirrel is back. Conker: Live and Reloaded is the Xbox update of one of the best platformers for the N64. And although we loved the game on the N64, it's a little hard to imagine Rare spending the time to bring the same game out again on the Xbox. So let's take a hands-on look at the game with our man, Chris, to see just what we can expect, and get a better idea if this game should elicit a big sigh, or a big squeal.

Max Payne
game: Max Payne
review | 04/21/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
GBA players have reason to smile: Max Payne is that rare sort of GBA game that manages to deliver the fun, style, and feel of its console counterpart. The action is there, the bullet time is there”somehow even 20+ minutes of narration is there. It's all quite an accomplishment on a handheld. Click here for the full review.

Grabbed by the Ghoulies
game: Grabbed by the Ghoulies
review | 12/09/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
The wizards at Rare are easily one of the most beloved development studios around. Long the secret behind some of Nintendo's best games, Rare has a new home and they're starting to get their Xbox groove on. Grabbed by the Ghoulies is a bit too simple to be a hit for those looking for the Perfect Dark experience, but it will probably fare better with the kiddies and will no doubt find its way into a stocking or two.

Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge
game: Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge
review | 11/10/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Everything old is new again. That seems to be the motto of late, and that's not always a bad thing, but it is a risky venture. Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, is the latest offering in the stellar N64 series of Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie“this time on the GBA. Delivering remarkable gamepaly and remaining incredible faithful to the old, this is one port that rocks“while it lasts. Peek through the window of the house that Rare built right here.

Freelancer Review (PC)
game: Freelancer
review | 03/20/03 | Aaron Stanton
Microsoft\'s latest space epic is called Freelancer, and it\'s a ton of fun. Featuring a gigantic universe for you to explore, this game puts you in the role of a freelance trader and mercenary. Flying through the stars blowing stuff up has rarely been this much fun. Plus, it looks real pretty. Click here for the whole rundown.

INTERVIEW - Niel Wiser, President & Founder of UltraPrime Network
Articles Archive | 01/19/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
The Evolvers: A well selected name for what could constitute an entirely new perspective on massively multiplayer gaming. For years there have been videogames that have attempted to mimic the look and feel of Hollywood: vampire slayers, star trekkers, bounty hunters “ slews of voice actors trying to mimic other people in the name of a good videogame. It's amazing how rarely they succeed. Similarly, there are times when storylines built with the controls of a console or played out on the screen of the PC are used to produce a feature film. Resident Evil. Final Fantasy.

Nintendo Gamecube Info Roundup
Articles Archive | 05/20/01 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
While there were many points of interest at E3 this year, the most consistently really crowded booth was Nintendo's, where gamers flocked, nay swarmed, to see the GameCube. For those skeptics out there who think the general mediocrity of the N64 experience has soured gamers, witness the intense interest shown for the new system. Let's face it, the N64 has suffered from a general lack of titles, and some companies have released really terrible games for it, further causing pain to gamers who have been forced to pursue the "any port in a storm" strategy (Big Mountain 2000 comes to mind, er, flashes painfully across my memory). However, there have been some very good titles, and it's no mistake that the best titles on the system have been made by Nintendo and it's 2nd party developer, Rare. Nintendo is, in many ways, the Disney of the gaming world “ they have created and continue to create incredibly popular and lasting characters, who appear in all sorts of games and have firmly lodged themselves in the hearts of mainstream USA (as well as mainstream everywhere else).

bleem!
Articles Archive | 01/01/00 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
This past summer I reviewed bleem!, a Playstation emulator introduced at E3 last spring. We rarely revisit software titles but because of the ongoing legal battles between bleem! and Sony, and the recent release of version 1.5b, we at GamesFirst! decided to take a second look. The initial review can be found in it's entirety here; let's get this updated review started by sharing a December 13, 1999 press release:
