Johnny Gat's not a good man. Powerful, but not good. That's why he uses each and every of the seven deadly sins to send all of those already dead to the after-afterlife. Most of them look like they deserve it, to be fair. Especially those nipple-rubbing demons. read
Sprout some wings and take an aerial tour of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and New Hades with Johnny Gat acting as a murderous guide. When he's not perusing the underworld via an overhead view, he's running down demons in his rambulance or firing swaths of rockets from his armchair.
Our promised musical number hasn't shown up yet, but so far, everything is so wonderfully Saints Row. read
I've played and enjoyed all of the Saints Row games to date, but wonder how much longer this can last. How much more ridiculous can the series get, and even if there is room to up the insanity, do we even want that? Where Vol... read feature
At its PAX panel, Volition announced a new Saints Row, a standalone expansion of Saints Row IV called Gat Out of Hell (PC, PS3, 360, PS4, Xbox One). It has you travelling to Hell, is half the size of Steelport, and feat... read
Do you like piña coladas and getting caught in zombie-infested time loops? Are you not into yoga, but into land masses that are surrounded by water on all sides? Deep Silver took out a personal ad. It wants ... read
4A Games' remastered Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are available today on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, either separately for $24.99 or together in the Metro Redux bundle for $49.99.
Aside from technical improvements, ... read
You'll be able to explore Los Angeles, Santa Monica, some beaches, a golf course, and maybe even more in the final version of Dead Island 2. But what Deep Silver was showing at gamescom 2014 was pretty limited. I only got to run around a small, closed-off section of the Los Angeles suburbs. It was a short taste of what the Southern California zombie-slaughtering life is like. read feature
There's a new gameplay trailer out for Dead Island 2, called "Sunshine & Slaughter" revealing a variety of ways to to dispatch the undead. The most interesting of which involves some sort weapon modifier allowing players... read feature
This game is a bloody messy. In a good way. I've never been too keen on Dead Island, but maybe with Spec Ops developer Yager on Dead Island 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), this will make for a good time. Maybe some white ph... read
I'm not sure if it's a testament to the visual fidelity of Metro Redux or a stark reminder of how 2033 and Last Light looked on legacy consoles, but this trailer shows that the upgrade for the remake is q... read
Crytek obtained the rights to TimeSplitters after picking up the studio responsible for the series, Free Radical Design, which was later renamed Crytek UK. Recently, that team and the game it was working on, Homefront: The Re... read
"I love it."
The specter of Diablo looms large over the action-RPG genre; most games borrow heavily from Blizzard's seminal game and those games' success is usually judged on how close they stick to the formula and how well t... read feature
A few years ago, Lionsgate picked up the film rights to Dead Island but now Deep Silver is moving forward with Occupant Entertainment to "package, produce, and finance" an adaptation.
It's unclear which direction the movie wi... read
It looks like things have finally come to a head at Crytek. The troubled publisher and developer behind Ryse, Crysis, and the upcoming Homefront: The Revolution has taken major steps to secure its own future. Crytek has sold ... read
Piranha Bytes went off in a different direction with its pirate-centric Risen 2: Dark Waters and that didn't sit well with some series fans. For the next game, Risen 3: Titan Lords, the studio claims it has gone back to its ... read
First came the CGI trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords, and now, screenshots. The one above? My favorite of the pack by a wide margin. Some of the others are oddly blinding.
The game features three factions and one of them is ca... read
Remember the last time we talked about a Dead Island collector's edition and it was a disembodied female torso? I don't think Deep Silver wants to go that route this time, so they're turning to the community to find out what ... read
The next Dead Island game isn't Dead Island 2. Of course, Dead Island: Riptide already showed the series' disregard for numeration. Counting the early access MOBA, Dead Island 2 should be Dead Island 5. But Dea... read feature
Not too long ago, we announced that Goat Simulator would be receiving a retail release in the UK. A boxed version of the bizarre farm animal simulator was awesome news, but North American gamers were still relegated to the di... read
Dead Island Epidemic's four-minute gameplay video tries really hard to be hardcore, but I cringed at the way the announcer said the title. It wasn't good. With that said, it looks like it could be fun. Obviously this is a MO... read
Well just like Saints Row: The Third, Deep Silver is re-releasing Saints Row IV and including all 29 downloadable content packs. Really? 29 goddamn pieces of DLC? Ugh.
Gross, but now's as good as time as ever to buy Saints Ro... read
Earlier this year, Deep Silver announced a visual remake of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, called Metro Redux. It has the original development team handling things, and at $25 apiece, you'll get access to either game with ... read
The debut of Dead Island led us to believe that it would tell a very dramatic and serious story about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. That’s not quite the game we ended up with, so it’s refreshing to know th... read
Huh. I missed that Spec Ops: The Line studio Yager is handling development on Dead Island 2. That knowledge combined with the excellent CG trailer has me mildly interested.
Here's Max sharing his thoughts after seeing an ear... read feature
As a result of THQ's fire sale at the beginning of 2013, several IPs were ushered off to new homes, just waiting for someone to advance their stories while being published under a new banner. One such example is Homefront, wh... read feature
Deep Silver has released a few more screenshots of Metro Redux, the remaster of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this summer.
The package (also available individually) represents a great wa... read
Thanks for not calling it Sacr3d.
This new Sacred game features online (four players) and offline (two players) co-op, which will probably be its main draw when it releases on August 5 for PS3, 360, PC. Plus, your homies' voices can drown out those badly acted, hokey combat barks from the trailer. read
As you may have heard, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are coming together for a new remaster package for the new generation of consoles and PC in the newly announced Metro Redux. This is better than your standard tweak-and-... read feature
Over the next two weeks, Humble Bundle will be running 24-hour deals and the promotion kicks off this morning with a repeat of the Humble Deep Silver Bundle. It was a pretty good compilation originally, and it's back with upd... read
Here's the extended CGI trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords that was first teased last month. I still don't know how Brittany managed to write that many words covering it, but now I'm thinking about What Dreams May Come, again,... read
The official teaser trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords is out now, and it involves a lot of pretty CG animation and generic combat. It's got all the hallmarks of a traditional Western RPG: darkness, big swords, and copiou... read
Ever since the third installment in the series, Saints Row has been a franchise that hasn't been afraid to toot its own horn. Not necessarily without cause, though -- after all, Saints Row IV was pretty darn good. B... read
