Terraria feels so right on the Vita

You might not think it, but Terraria is definitely one of the more hotly anticipated games to come to the PS Vita. I myself have been looking forward to playing it on the go for the better part of this year after putting ple...

Payday 2 has sold 1.58 million copies

Payday 2 is doing very well for itself. At retail, it broke into the NPD's top 10 for August 2013 but, here's the thing about that: the game's 1.58 million copies sold, according to Starbreeze, were 80 percent digital. Intere...

Payday 2 is a success, because the people making and publishing it weren't completely stupid. What sorcery is this?

Yes, it's one of those episodes where we celebrate one game getting it right and not stuffing everything up. Speaking of stuffing, Jim at last unveils the Dragon Dildo ... and does things with it. Terrible things.

Review: PAYDAY 2  photo
Review: PAYDAY 2
by Jim Sterling

Nobody could ever claim PAYDAY: The Heist wasn't a good idea. Tapping into every human's secret desire to be part of a beautifully orchestrated, flamboyantly daring theft of grand proportions was a masterstroke, and while the execution was spotty, the overall result was a ton of fun. 

Overkill is having a second crack of the whip with PAYDAY 2, clutching its clever idea jealously while surrounding it with much more content. A deeper leveling system, greater customization options, and a ton of new heists are all on offer.

The execution is, once again, spotty, but the result is, once again, a ton of fun.

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons also coming to PS3, PC

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons Achievement Guide photo
Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons Achievement Guide
by Brett Makedonski

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons is an anomaly when it comes to Achievements. Not a single one will be unlocked through normal gameplay. However, every last one takes only seconds to get and isn't dependent on anything other than traveling a bit off the beaten path.

No, there's nothing strenuous about this list, but most of the Achievements are pretty cryptic in their description. If you're stuck on some or simply want to take all of the mystery out of it, I've put together a guide to unlocking all of them in the order that they appear. I've tried to keep it as spoiler-free as possible, but you probably shouldn't check it out if you want the purest experience possible.

That being said, 400/400 Gamerscore is right around the corner!

Review: Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons
by Brett Makedonski

It all starts innocently enough with a pair of brothers making their way through town. Sure, there's a task at hand, but urgency isn't an issue. It should be, but it isn't. Soaking in the warm glow of the sun and playing with some bunnies feel like more pertinent matters.

Before long, it's not apparent where the siblings are, but it's obvious that they took an unexpected turn toward Crazyville. Thinking back to just a few hours prior, it's remarkable that this is even the same adventure -- how far things have come.

That's when it hits you. Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons isn't about the destination; it's about the journey, cliché be damned. And, oh, what a journey it is.

There's a little Hotline Miami in Payday 2

There's a special homage to Hotline Miami in Payday 2! You can purchase a pig mask called "The Hog" and it has some familiar sounding text associated with it too. Yeah that's about it. Just a neat little thing. Anyway, we're...

My teammate shot me in Takedown: Red Sabre

Takedown: Red Sabre should make tactical first-person shooter players happy. I'm not one, I've come to realize, but I gave it my best during a demonstration of this squad-based PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 game from S...

Zombie survival title How to Survive was a real gem photo
Zombie survival title How to Survive was a real gem
by Jordan Devore

In EKO Studios' How to Survive, you'll travel from island to island, monitoring hunger and sleep meters, crafting items from junk you find lying around and, oh yeah, taking down zombies with a bow or machete. The whole undead survival thing is over and done with for a lot of you, and I'm not far behind myself, but this was a lovely surprise for me at E3.

What sold me on the premise more than anything, I think, was that the zombies didn't merely exist to be killed -- to make you feel like a badass. While a well-placed shot will still do the trick, a swarm could come out of nowhere, and they were serious trouble if they got anywhere near your face. Good luck shaking even a couple of zombies off once they're within range.

The other standout feature for me was that the extensive crafting system allows you to uncombine items at any point free of penalty. That kind of freedom is always appreciated, especially as someone who would never experiment with weapons otherwise. As familiar as How to Survive initially looks, in practice, there's nothing quite like it. Perhaps it's the pacing. Do keep an eye on this PC, Xbox Live Arcade, and PlayStation Network release.
