Killing Floor mystery revealed as the Twisted Xmas Event

Last week we started to see a mystery image teased on the official Killing Floor Steam group and knowing Tripwire Interactive's previous holiday season gifts, it wasn't a big leap of imagination to think that there would be a...

Killing Floor mystery image teased plus free weekend
by Alasdair Duncan

Tripwire Interactive's cooperative zombie shooter Killing Floor shows no signs of declining in popularity, if my Friend's List on Steam is anything to go by. It's still a solid, really enjoyable co-op experience that's been supported with plenty of paid DLC and free updates since its launch in 2009. If you're still on the fence about playing Killing Floor, then perhaps a free weekend might be of help.

Free weekends on Steam have convinced me to buy plenty of games and if you can find some friends to play with, I heartily recommend Killing Floor; there's plenty of maps to choose from and plenty of incentive to progress up the ranking system. You're not 100% dependent on teammates as you are in Left 4 Dead, but it's still best to play with buddies.

Tripwire has also teased a cryptic image on its Steam community page, which looks like it might be revealed before Thursday. What could it be? A stack of new weapons or enemies? I'm hoping for another Christmas bonanza like last year. 'tis the season to be jolly indeed!

Review: Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
by Joshua Derocher

World War II has never been this interesting. Five years ago, most gamers where tired of seeing WWII games, and now the cool kids are playing modern warfare shooters. If you're sick of the current trend in this genre, and want something that's a little bit different, then have I got a game for you.

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is all about bloody and massive 64-player battles set in the Eastern front of World War II. It's a refreshing blend of simulation and fun gameplay that should be a good change of pace from the generic modern-day shooters that currently dominate the market.

This preview is only for the multiplayer portion of the game. Honestly, it's good enough on its own to make this one a definite buy. The single-player will just be icing on the cake.

This new Red Orchestra 2 trailer amuses me so
