Last-minute issue causes Battlefield 4 Naval Strike PC delay

The Naval Strike DLC for Battlefield 4 launches today for Battlefield 4 Premium members ahead of its wide release on April 8, 2014. That was the plan, anyway. The new content (four maps, Titan mode, a hovercraft) will be late...

What is even happening in this Beat Bros video?

I have watched the video above a couple of times now, but I still do not think I could describe Beat Bros accurately. It looks like developer Ultimate Walrus (of #Snake2 infamy) started making a rhythm-based Bomberman c...

So, Battlefield 4's Naval Strike DLC looks pretty great

It's been months and months since I last touched Battlefield 4, for a number of reasons -- some of them the fault of the game, some of them not. I'm thinking the impending Naval Strike DLC, showcased rather excellently in th...

Electronic Arts reportedly locked in for Titanfall 2

I know, I know -- talk of a Titanfall sequel already. Go ahead: give us your best groan. Of course Electronic Arts would want to turn the property into a full-on franchise and it sounds like the game sold well enough for the ...

Review: Strike Vector photo
Review: Strike Vector
by Josh Tolentino

Flying is great. Fighting while flying is pretty great, too, but for some reason, dogfighting in good ol' atmosphere hasn't caught on as quickly as dogfighting in space. Despite the resurgence of space games brought on by the rise of crowdfunding and indie development, "sky-shooters" outside the niche simulation market remain in somewhat short supply.

Strike Vector is the kind of game that aims to scratch that itch, and several more besides. Heck, the fact that it says "Brutal Aerial FPS" right on the figurative box is an apt descriptor for what developer Ragequit Corporation is attempting to do.

The only question is if they've enough thrust to send their little game soaring.

PvZ: Garden Warfare is getting substantial new DLC and it's free photo
PvZ: Garden Warfare is getting substantial new DLC and it's free
by Jordan Devore

I've been pleasantly surprised by the way Electronic Arts and PopCap have handled Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. First, the game itself is loads of fun -- the foundation is solid. But more than that, they don't have paid microtransactions yet even though they absolutely could have had those ready for day one, and the game's upcoming DLC is not only free, it's worthwhile.

Detailed today ahead of its March 18, 2014 release on Xbox One and Xbox 360, the Garden Variety Pack offers a new map, Chomp Town, and the eight-on-eight Gnome Bomb mode in which both plants and zombies try to destroy the other team's base.

There are also 24 new character ability upgrades -- three for each of the eight primary classes -- providing some additional (and much-needed) variety. Examples listed include a Super Goop attack for the Chomper which cements zombies, an Ultra Tackle for the All-Star, and a Solar Flare Beam for the way-too-happy Sunflower. Also be on the lookout for Pirate Zombies in the existing Sharkbite Shores and Port Scallywag maps.

Blame Titanfall: Digital console spending dropped last month

The US market spent less money on digital games in February, and there may be a somewhat unlikely reason for that. One school of thought is that the impending release of Titanfall is directly to blame. According to Super...

Jumping from jet to jet is business as usual in JetGetters

TinyBuild has taken to Kickstarter for JetGetters, a ridiculous multiplayer game in which players fly jets around and shoot at one another until they decide to leap out of said vehicle, fire their gun while in a freefall, an...

All those servers still down? Play Towerfall instead

Towerfall has been called "one of the best things you can do on a couch," which is high praise if you think about all the good things you can do on a couch. You can eat pizza and drink whiskey on a couch. You could read a bo...

TowerFall: Ascension is an absolute bullseye on PS4

One summer at scout camp, I made quite a discovery. It was a latent ability to lob arrows with incredible accuracy. I'd always been a terrible shot with a BB gun, but found it almost effortless to pick up a bow and strike the...

Impressions: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (Xbox 360)

It's as if we slipped into some alternate dimension. The long-awaited Plants vs. Zombies 2 went straight to mobile, passing over PC fans, and while it wasn't bad -- not at all -- I sure lost interest. Instead, it's PopCap's t...

This animation captures GTA Online perfectly

You don't need to have played GTA Online to enjoy this animation by Jameserton, but it'll hit much closer to home if you have done so. It's funny, and I say that as someone who goes into these game parodies with a sometimes unreasonable amount of skepticism. That dramatic music during the bomb sequence? The best.
