Shadow of Mordor looks good but is it Lord of the Rings?

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has gotten a lot of people excited because of its seemingly great combat and interesting reputation system but is it me, or does it just look like a generic dark fantasy game? I'll be honest, m...

Dying Light's gamescom trailer is all about hunting and hiding

As I wrote about at E3, there's a lot that you can do in Techland's Dying Light. First and foremost, you can run, jump, and grapple your way across terrain at a breakneck speed. You can take a break from traversal and use yo...

Engage in psychological warfare with Shadow of Mordor's Wraith

You might've thought that Orcs were all fleshy and a good ol'-fashioned sword through the squishy parts would be enough to take care of them. False. Some might fall to the blade, but you'll need something decidedly more cere...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor shall not release on October 7 anymore

October is going to be ridiculously packed with high-profile videogames, so the news that Warner Bros. has decided to fast-track Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's release from October 7 to September 30 is certainly welcom...

Adam West is still the best Batman and will hopefully prove it in LEGO Batman 3

The official LEGO Batman Twitter account posted an image of a Lego Adam West this week (seen above), which hopefully means we'll see a whole lot more of him in the upcoming LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Adam West is also goin...

Preorder Lego Batman 3 anywhere but Best Buy for a physical reward

Following the abhorrent trend of announcing different preorder bonuses across different retailers is Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, which is shipping with six different doodads depending on where you go. Fortunately, it's not ...

Batman: Arkham Origins Complete Edition outed by Amazon

A listing for Batman: Arkham Origins: The Complete Edition has been outed by Amazon Germany. You are all shocked, just shocked, that Warner Bros. is planning to re-release the last Batman game with all the downloadable conten...

Fight against a giant Scarecrow in Arkham Knight's exclusive PS4 DLC

Scarecrow's reveal during the Sony E3 2014 press conference was a highlight. Woke me right up, it did. Batman: Arkham Knight was yet another one of those games to (annoyingly) have system-exclusive content -- in this specific...

Microsoft Store lists Batman: Arkham Knight for February

[Update: It seems that they've changed the date listing to read "Not announced" since this morning. Tease.]  We found out that Batman: Arkham Knight was delayed right before E3, and last week we learned that the wait mig...

Dying Light is less about zombies and more about movement photo
Dying Light is less about zombies and more about movement
by Brett Makedonski

What can be done freshen up the zombie genre at this point? Videogames, television shows, movies, comics -- virtually every pop culture medium's been infested by the craze, long ago hitting a saturation (and then oversaturation) point. So, how does a developer like Techland, who's most well-known recently for its zombie games, take the concept and still manage to make it its own?

Techland's creating a game about zombies, that isn't really about zombies. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, that's what it's doing with Dying Light. And who knows -- maybe that's the take on the undead genre that'll liven it up a bit.

We've known that Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed into 2015, but we haven't had a time frame to hinge our expectations on. Anyone eagerly anticipating the game might be pleased to find out that there's a chance we ...

I made someone's nuts explode in Mortal Kombat X

I've always felt like the videogame industry doesn't feel right without a Mortal Kombat. So many games are always striving to be these serious affairs, and it takes something like Mortal Kombat to remind people that oh right,...
