E3 09: Hands-on with Overlord 2

I love me some Overlord. I might not love it as much as Jim does but I think it would be a close race as to who has a bigger tent for the upcoming sequel. Now that I've had an opportunity to play it on the show floor at E3, I'm even more excited than ever.Hit the jump and check out why it feels so good to be so bad.

Overlord II demo coming soon

Overlord II is my jam, which is why I'm bummed that I can't get to check it out at E3. Luckily, our man Conrad Zimmerman is on the case, so stay tuned for our first impressions of the game coming soon. Those impressions can b...

Overlord II is lording it over these new screens

The best thing is that I get paid to write headlines like that. Anyway, Overlord II is a matter of weeks away and I am very excited indeed for the sequel to what was quite possibly my favorite game of 2007. With a more evil O...

Have some Overlord II videos, by all means

Codemasters' Overlord II is nearly upon us, and I am looking forward to it significantly, thank you very much. In anticipation of the hopefully excellent sequel, two brand new videos have been unleashed. A second developer di...

Overlord Dark Legend is as dark as it is legendary

Codemasters is pumping out the Overlord-themed goodies this year, with Overlord II coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, Overlord Minions hitting the DS and Overlord Dark Legend invading the Wii. The latter is one we haven't talked...

Pre-order Overlord, get Minion figurine, make me jealous

The life of a reviewer might seem pretty cushy to you lot. Sure, we get free games, but there's a downside that you must consider. First of all, we have to play a bunch of wank like Velvet Assassin, and secondly, we get to mi...

Overlord II trailer be bringin' the Minions!

Overlord was one of the coolest games of last year, and the sequel is a matter of months away. To celebrate, here's a fresh new trailer and some screenshots, focusing this time on the most important aspect of the game -- the ...

Overlord Minions assets for your diabolical pleasure

I love Overlord and I love my DS, so it's hardly surprising that Overlord Minions is one of my most eagerly awaited games of the summer. Being able to take control of the Minions directly is hopefully going to be a lot of fun...

More Overlord II screens give us excuse to talk about Overlord

Apparently, Codemasters didn't have room in its email to give us more than two screens with yesterday's dev diary, and has provided three more pretty pictures for Overlord fans to gawp at. I don't really mind, however, becaus...

Overlord II dev diary promises much more evil (also, harems)

I'm probably the biggest Overlord fan on staff, and pretty much fell in love with Codemasters' original title on sight. My only real problem was that the titular Overlord was never really as evil as he was advertised, and you...

Overlord Dark Legend promotes suicide bombing in such a cute way!

Overlord Dark Legend takes place before the original Overlord, but the premise remains the same. Take control of Minions and cause havoc across the lands. The Minions are under the control of the Overlord and will do anythin...

NY Comic Con: A look at an early build of Overlord: Dark Legend photo
NY Comic Con: A look at an early build of Overlord: Dark Legend
by Jonathan Holmes

One of the more pleasant surprises of New York Comic Con '09 was the appearance of a playable build of Overlord: Dark Legend. When I came upon the game, it was sitting unattended, with no one around to demo it, or no controllers to play it with. I had to sneak some controllers out in order to play the game, but since it's in pre-alpha mode, I couldn't even get the thing out of debug mode. I had to cry for help to Dan Robinson, Marketing Manager for the game's developer Codemasters, in order to get the game running.

What I saw is not likely to be fully indicative of what we'll get from the game when it's released later this year. Still, I probably know more about how well Overlord: Dark Legend is coming along than most people on the planet, so I figured it would only be right to tell you what I know. Hit the jump for my full impressions.

Overlord Minions conquers the DS and my heart

As a big portable gamer, I always love to see a console title that I'm fond of hit the DS or PSP. Naturally, one of my top games of 2007 being announced for the Nintendo DS made me very happy indeed, and with these new screen...

New Overlord: Dark Legend screenshots and saucy information

I could barely contain my joy when I announced that Codemasters was bringing more Overlord to us, and it's good to see that Wii fans will be able to enjoy this darkly comic IP thanks to Dark Legend, a game which puts players ...
