I love me some Evil Genius. Enough that I'm willing to try Evil Genius Online, which is Rebellion's free-to-play approximation of the classic base-building game. It's playable now in open beta on Facebook and while it's got t...

Given how popular sniping has become in shooters these days, it's rather odd that there haven't been many games focusing on this mechanic. There have been a few here and there, sure, and you may have even seen a sniper cabinet at your local Dave & Buster's, but the genre still hasn't seen the same success as your typical run-and-gun war title.

Rebellion Games is looking to change this by revisiting their Sniper Elite franchise with Sniper Elite V2, which places you in the boots of a lone sniper during World War II. If you have been getting a bit exhausted by the current barrage of modern shooters, Sniper Elite V2 looks to provide a refreshing throwback.

Review: NeverDead photo
Review: NeverDead
by Jim Sterling

When creating a videogame protagonist with a particular super power, there's an extra responsibility to create a challenging, rewarding sense of balance. If your hero has enhanced strength and speed, how do you keep enemy opponents threatening without undermining the player's advantages? If your character cannot die, what elements can be introduced in order to maintain a believable conflict? 

NeverDead is a game that does not ask these questions. In fact, it uses the invincibility of its protagonist as an excuse to cut corners and ignore even the most basic factors of game balance. After sitting through the end credits of NeverDead, I am proud to say I did something that developer Rebellion did not do ...

I finished the game.

New Sniper Elite V2 videos are looking good

Back in 2005, a little game called Sniper Elite was released on the original Xbox, PS2 and PC. With a name as silly as that, many weren't expecting much from the third-person shooter which placed an emphasis on stealth....

Judge Dredd kicks some undead arse on iOS

Most of the time when I see police officers, they are asking gangs of youths to go somewhere else, or looking at me suspiciously because a man with a beard must have something to hide. Mega-City One's top lawman, Judge Dredd...

With the news that Creative Assembly is working on a new Aliens game, one may wonder whether or not Rebellion will get another crack at Aliens vs. Predator. According to SEGA, the answer is no. At least for right now.  "...
