Stay far away from these Killing Floor 2 monsters

Slashers, and Crawlers, and Clots, oh my! Everything in this Killing Floor 2 trailer looks positively no bueno. Especially that Fleshpound character. His concrete pound looks aggressive enough, and I doubt that skin would hold up any better than that cement did.

Bayonetta 2's 'Tag Climax' cooperative mode allows players to exterminate enemies together

Bayonetta 2 will be much more than just a solo affair. Nintendo has announced an additional cooperative mode known as "Tag Climax," which will allow two players to team up together and take on the many enemies in-game all for...

Fable Legends combines Left 4 Dead with Dungeons and Dragons photo
Fable Legends combines Left 4 Dead with Dungeons and Dragons
by Darren Nakamura

For better or worse, Fable is one of the staple series for Xbox consoles. Since its beginning as a relatively simple action-RPG, it has seen some entries go off in various directions. Fable Legends is another game that takes the core gameplay and spins it off into something unique for the franchise.

Rather than focusing on a single player adventure with highly customizable character progression, heroes in Fable Legends are one of four set characters, and the four venture together to take on more action-oriented challenges. It might be a far cry from main series Fable, but it works well.

Yoshi's Woolly World looks AMAZING photo
Yoshi's Woolly World looks AMAZING
by Jordan Devore

At Nintendo's E3 Digital Event, Good-Feel gave us a long-awaited progress update on Yarn Yoshi, and it's without a doubt the Yoshi game we've been waiting for all these years. It's now called Yoshi's Woolly World and is set for release on Wii U next year.

Good-Feel wanted to create a new type of Yoshi game filled with the same kinds of elements from the adorable Kirby's Epic Yarn, but this time, the world has proper depth, visually.

Much of the focus has been placed on exploration, specifically by way of Yoshi's unique abilities and, going a step further, a two-player mode. Both players are Yoshi -- one red, one green -- and can eat and spit each other out to reach new areas. I'm in love.

I'd be more excited about this Phantasy Star Nova trailer if it showed gameplay

Remember how earlier I detailed Sega's E3 2014 lineup and we all lamented the lack of Phantasy Star Nova localization? Me too. But don't cry. Not yet. There's a brand new trailer that'll dry all of your tears, and then remin...

Equip this Gauntlet trailer to gear up for battle

Ready to play Gauntlet? No, you haven't time-traveled to the 80's, and you don't need a pocket full of loose change. You just need a PC and $20. In preparation for E3, Arrowhead put out this trailer for its remake of Gauntle...

1001 Spikes knows how to do a launch trailer right

Ooh, this is looking good. In the lead up to 1001 Spikes, there's been plenty of footage shared but much of it appeared to be from the earlier levels. Now, with this launch trailer, we've got a proper preview of the misery t...

Use an open world to fight for freedom in Homefront: The Revolution photo
Use an open world to fight for freedom in Homefront: The Revolution
by Brett Makedonski

As a result of THQ's fire sale at the beginning of 2013, several IPs were ushered off to new homes, just waiting for someone to advance their stories while being published under a new banner. One such example is Homefront, which was met with a relatively poor reception upon release in 2011. Now, Crytek has scooped up the rights and plans to reinvent the property with a sequel.

Homefront: The Revolution sees a continuation of the world that Homefront introduced us to, but from a different angle. It's now four years after the initial invasion by North Korean forces, and the United States is completely occupied. The North Koreans have opted to establish their base in Philadelphia, which is the setting for the game.

Flying Wild Hog's next game is a platformer

This is not at all what I'd expect from the studio behind Hard Reset and Shadow Warrior. And you know what? I'm digging it for that exact reason. (Besides, the studio will surely be back with more violent first-person games b...

PC Port Report: BattleBlock Theater

When BattleBlock Theater originally released last year for Xbox 360, we loved it. The cooperative platforming, secret-hunting, and unmistakable Behemoth style came together into one solid, surprisingly large package. Soon, it...

Killing Floor 2 teaser trailer is nothing more than a tease

Brittany hopes that Killing Floor 2 will be just as gory as she wants it to be. I don't have any real hopes or aspirations for the game. No, wait -- I do; I hope it doesn't have as much hard rock as this trailer does.
