Explode zombie heads into raspberry jam with Dead Island 2

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...

Call of Duty's multiplayer looks faster than ever in Advanced Warfare photo
Call of Duty's multiplayer looks faster than ever in Advanced Warfare
by Jordan Devore

Activision is offering an in-depth look at multiplayer in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare today during a live event but if you're content with seeing just the basics, this trailer will suffice.

With the new exoskeletons, gameplay is much more vertical. These high-tech suits allow soldiers to jump super high and boost to dodge and dash. At a glance, the speedier movement system appears similar to Titanfall but whether it plays that way remains to be seen. For folks who are into Call of Duty and not much else, this will certainly be a different experience.

The trailer also showcased a level with a tsunami which I hope is a sign of things to come. I like those one-off map events, even if they eventually get stale. Also, Hammer of Dawn, is that you?

Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space coming to Steam Early Access September 26

Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space looks like something you'd get if you spliced together The Residents, BioShock and Myst, and it definitely stands out from the crowd. Developed by Z4GO and Ivan Venturi Productions, i...

Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Nemesis photo
Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Nemesis
by Chris Carter

Look, $50 is a lot of money for a Season Pass in a first-person shooter. If it was just comprised of 16 maps alone, no matter how good they were, it probably wouldn't be worth the money for all but the most diehard of FPS fans.

But thankfully, Infinity Ward has made amends for the rather bland core package of Call of Duty: Ghosts, and the Nemesis map pack is no exception. In addition to four solid maps, there's another chapter of Extinction, the developer's out-of-this-world take on Treyarch's zombies.

Because of these packs, I'm actually a bit more excited for Infinity Ward's follow-up in two year's time.

Okay, Metro Redux looks really good compared to the originals

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...

Killing Floor 2 has more gore than you can twirl a katana at photo
Killing Floor 2 has more gore than you can twirl a katana at
by Bill Zoeker

Killing Floor 2 is showing in spades much of what made the original a success. Blood by the bucket is shown to stain the map for the duration of the match as players dismember genetic freaks every which way. Tripwire Interactive has revamped the Perk system, added a ton of animation variations, and even added some sweet little flourishes to melee weapons.

As a fan of the original game, suffice it to say that what I've seen so far promises to bring the familiar flavor of carnage to another level.

So, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is happening

Based on the name alone, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies doesn't sound like a legitimate, officially-licensed game, but it is. Valve's okay with it! And, actually it's not too far-fetched when you recall that Nexon is responsib...

Battlefield 4 is free to play for a week on PC photo
Battlefield 4 is free to play for a week on PC
by Jordan Devore

EA is back with another Origin Game Time promotion following that one for Titanfall. Those of you on PC can claim a week of free access to Battlefield 4 -- just add the game to your Origin library before August 14. The clock doesn't start until you launch the title, at which point you'll then have one full week (168 hours) to play as much or as little as you'd like.

This offer includes full access to the single-player campaign (don't feel bad about skipping it) and multiplayer, and any progress you make will be retained should you choose to buy Battlefield 4 afterward. Pretty good way to get your fill without committing.

Tempted to log back in after a long absence. Maybe I'll stand a chance now.

The conclusion to the Far Cry 4 devs' trip to Nepal is exceedingly grim

Part one of the video series chronicling the Far Cry 4 developers' trip to Nepal was strange. Part two was more dangerous than anything. The third and final part is just downright depressing. Talking with citizens that ...

Here's over 20 minutes of Evolve's Kraken

When I think about the multiplayer games that I really enjoy, one immediately comes to mind: Turtle Rock Studios' Left 4 Dead. In a sea of samey competitive multiplayer titles, something about that particular game really wor...

This Destiny player is better than everyone else

What's it look like when one player rises to the top of all others during a short beta that introduces the world to a game? That's a very nuanced question you ask, but this montage highlights some of the top-ranked Destiny player's moments during competitive multiplayer. Something tells me this isn't the first shooter that he's tried his hand at.
