Oh The Evil Within, how I can't wait for you to scare the every living daylights out of me. Shinji Mikami's past games were my first tastes of the survival horror genre, and I'm quite looking forward to see what he does with...

Zombies Monsters Robots is ridiculous, cheesy, and so much fun

Hey you, what if I were to tell you about a free-to-play shooter that has you fighting against zombies. Not impressed? Well, I don't blame you. Zombies are kinda all over the place now. Fine, what about a free-to-play shooter...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare's DLC is off to a great start

I really enjoyed Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, which was a pleasant surprise amidst a sea of "me too" shooters. I enjoyed it so much in fact that I still play it, and I find myself spending more time with it l...

Review: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare photo
Review: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
by Chris Carter

Plants vs. Zombies has been on one wild ride since PopCap was acquired by Electronic Arts. What started off as a grassroots (hah) series with humble beginnings on the PC has become an exclusive-heavy franchise -- with Plants vs. Zombies 2 originally launching on iOS, and Garden Warfare launching on Xbox platforms and the PC.

In many ways EA has hurt the overall image of PopCap, but there are some benefits to being owned by a major publisher. Most notably, an in-house engine ripe for the taking, and the resources to create one of the most oddball third-person shooters ever made. While it's not everything it could be, Garden Warfare is most definitely a successful experiment.

Review: Earth Defense Force 2025 photo
Review: Earth Defense Force 2025
by Ian Bonds

In 2009, American and European Xbox 360 players got their first taste of the popular Earth Defense Force PS2 series from Japan with the game's third entry, 2017, by developer Sandlot. The cult classic budget title featured frantic arcade action, but was marred by terrible voice acting, low-quality graphics, and massive slowdown when multiple enemies were on-screen. Still, it managed to garner a fan following, as few could deny how fun the game was.

Two years later, Vicious Cycle took over development of the sequel, Insect Armageddon. This version retained the overall feel of the previous title, but improved the graphics and added online support, as well as multiple armor classes. While a technically better title, it separated itself from the previous game by focusing on being more of a squad-based shooter.

Now, the bugs are back, and with them original series developer Sandlot. Taking notes from what worked best in both of the previous entries, and retaining the heart of what made the series such a cult hit was a tall, mech-sized order. Thankfully, like members of the EDF themselves, it looks as though they were more than up to the task.

The Order: 1886: Gritty, cinematic eye candy photo
The Order: 1886: Gritty, cinematic eye candy
by Dale North

Sony and Ready at Dawn have been tight-lipped about upcoming PS4 game The Order: 1886 up until now, and even with what they showed us last week, it seems that they're still just barely scratching the surface. But it's not like they didn't want to show us more, or at least that was what I sensed after hearing from Ready at Dawn. It's just that what we saw was about all they had to show.

This first showing of gameplay is what the industry likes to call a "vertical slice." This slice of The Order: 1886 wasn't quite enough to fill me up, but it did serve as a pretty tasty sampler.

The anatomy of Evolve - interview photo
The anatomy of Evolve - interview
by Bill Zoeker

Our own gentle giant, Max Scoville, had a chat recently with Denby Grace of 2K Games about their upcoming title, Evolve. In case you missed it, Evolve is being developed by Turtle Rock Studios, the minds behind the Left 4 Dead series. Max got the scoop on some of the finer points of gameplay in this "4v1" clash of predator and prey.

After sifting through the game footage for this video, I'm thoroughly intrigued by the unusual concepts presented in Evolve. Knowing this game comes from the people who crafted the remarkable AI in L4D, I'm rather excited at the idea of a new multiplayer game I can just play by myself when my friends aren't around. *cough*Payday 2*cough*

PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886 won't have multiplayer

Your first look at the SOCOM spiritual successor, H-Hour

H-Hour: World's Elite is the spiritual successor to the SOCOM franchise. After the studio went up, the team reformed into Special Operations Forces Studios and created a Kickstarter for a new third-person military shooter. The team met their funding goal last year and now we're seeing the first footage of H-Hour. The gameplay video here is all in pre-alpha, and it's looking pretty promising. .
