Nano Assault: Infections are sexy now

If I had known that fighting viruses was as fun and gorgeous as Nano Assault makes it seem, I'd almost certainly have studied medicine at university instead of drinking. Thankfully, you don't need a medical degree and a massi...

BloodRayne: Betrayal's rockin' soundtrack hits Bandcamp

Okay, so maybe Jim didn't care for WayFoward's reboot of the BloodRayne franchise with last week's release of BloodRayne: Betrayal, but I'm here to tell you that it wasn't all bad. The game's soundtrack, composed by Jake Kauf...

Review: BloodRayne: Betrayal
by Jim Sterling

Very few people can claim to love BloodRayne as a franchise, and there's a reason for that. The original titles were critically derided, the series of Uwe Boll movies are particularly grotesque, and the comic books are obscure as Hell. However, when someone's looking for fans of BloodRayne, they need look no further than myself. 

So, when news of a new BloodRayne game dropped, I was beyond excited. The fact that it appeared to be taking its cues from Castlevania was an added bonus, and the stage was set for a game that would finally make BloodRayne a respectable series as opposed to an eternally guilty pleasure. 

However, this game's name -- Betrayal -- is stunningly appropriate, because I feel like I've been stabbed in the back.

Have some new BloodRayne: Betrayal screens

BloodRayne: Betrayal releases this month and HNNNNNNNG, I can't wait. I've waited five bloody years for a new BloodRayne game, and not even Satan's penis could stop me from getting hold of it.  Unless it's a really nice penis.  Anyway, here are some new screens of the game, which is looking more pretty every time I see it. Game's out August 31, which is far too far away.
