Mad Max is releasing the same week as MGS V

How unfortunate. Warner Bros. and Avalanche Studios announced the release date for Mad Max on PC, PS4, and Xbox One: September 1 in North America, the same as Metal Gear Solid V, and September 4 in the United Kingdom. Also, t...

Megaton Rainfall is superhero action on an epic scale photo
Megaton Rainfall is superhero action on an epic scale
by Alessandro Fillari

Last month, we got a tease from an upcoming indie action title that will put players in the role of a superhero during an alien invasion. The trailer certainly inspired a lot of interest, as it was more somber and earnest, not loud and over the top like other superhero games we've seen.

Watching the footage, I got the impression Megaton Rainfall was a mix between Superman and Earth Defense Force, which sounds like it would make for an exciting title. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long to play, as the sole developer Alfonso Del Cerro was excited to get the game in player's hands at GDC 2015's Indie Megabooth.

Dubbed a "first-person superhero game" by its creator, Megaton Rainfall feels like a unique blend of genres.

Assassin's Creed will feature more modern day segments in the future

The amusing glitch-fest that was Assassin's Creed Unity didn't intentionally eschew the series' whacked out modern day narrative. In fact, more dalliances into now-time were planned for Unity, Assassin's Creed lead writer Dar...

Chop looks nice and furry in GTA V for PC

April 14, 2015. Barring any extra delays, that's when Grand Theft Auto V will release for PC. Rockstar released 15 screenshots today that aren't making our wait any easier. Good job, people responsible for capturing these scenes -- you correctly assumed I'd want to see how Chop the rottweiler looks in the PC version. My mind goes straight to the animals, always.

Far Cry 4 somehow gets more dangerous in Valley of the Yetis

If Far Cry 4's jaunt through Kyrat serves as any indication, the Himalayas are an incredibly dangerous place. Whatever isn't trying to maul you is trying to shoot bullets at you. It's like being caught between a rock and a h...

Get possessive over Gotham in this Batman: Arkham Knight trailer

The upcoming, M-rated end to Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy has a lovely new trailer out today. And this one isn't polished, artsy CG the series is known for. Some well cut in-game footage, a view of the rogues gallery teaming ...

Batman: Arkham Knight has an M rating

The end of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, squeaked by with a PG-13, but it looks like Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy didn't have the same luck. Arkham Knight director Sefton Hill told IGN that the gam...

It's the news we've been waiting to hear for months: four-player online heist missions will debut in Grand Theft Auto V on March 10, and the game's PC version will arrive April 14. There. Finally. "Our apologies to PC gamers...

Terraria: Otherworld trailer shows an alternate dimension to the sandbox

Whoa. What's this? A new game in the Terraria universe? I have just recently been getting back into the similar-but-unrelated Starbound, so this is especially interesting news right about now. Re-Logic released the above alp...

It looks like Just Cause 3 will end 2015 on a high note

Cool song! And it's nice to have a holiday 2015 release window locked in for Just Cause 3 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), but I'll take gameplay footage over a CG trailer any day. Where's that? Writing on the PlayStation Blog, Avalanch...

This first-person superhero game has such raw potential

Megaton Rainfall brings that idea for a superhero game many of us have had at one point or another to life: it lets players fly around in space before seamlessly touching down on Earth to stop alien invaders. Even if what's ...

Atari is making a new Asteroids game (Yes, really!)

Worlds Adrift has open-world swinging, flying ships

The thought of harvesting more trees and crafting more trinkets is unappealing, but I'll put up with those mechanics if it means getting to swing around in an open world. This is Worlds Adrift, an adventure game from Surgeon...

Assassin's Creed Rogue sneaks over to PC on March 10

You can beat Dying Light with no weapons, just punches and dropkicks

Not long removed from Dying Light's recent release, one boy decided to play through the entire game engaging only its best elements. That is, running around and drop kicking fools. It's dubbed the Jean Claude Van Damme run and its the only correct way to play a game that has drop kicks.  More games need drop kicks.

It's hard to believe Grow Home is a Ubisoft game

In my dream world, Ubisoft would primarily put out smaller personal projects like Grow Home, but, I get it -- there's substantially more money to be made on Assassin's Creed and its ilk. I'll cherish these moments whenever I...
