Ubisoft and Techland have announced Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and PC. Before you even think to ask, the answer is "yes" -- they're returning to the Wild West. No more of that modern-day cartel stuff.

The video above is a live-action trailer that doesn't reveal much. In The Gunslinger, you'll play as a bounty hunter who is a bad enough dude to go after Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, Jesse James, and other outlaws. The Concentration Mode mechanic is back again and will allow you to "unleash a flurry of bullets while dodging others." Uh huh. That certainly sounds like Call of Juarez.

Other than that, Ubisoft also teased the inclusion of a skill system without providing any specifics. The series seems to have gone downhill, and I have to imagine the scope of this title won't be as ambitious as prior installments, but it can't be worse than the last one, right? Don't answer that.

Preview: Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger is ... arcadey?

So it seems that Call of Juarez's brief stint in the modern era is over with. Goodbye and good riddance, I say. Returning to the old west setting of its series heritage, Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger aims to bring an arcade flair all its own. Does it actually work, though?more

Review: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was a surprise hit for me. I had never been a huge Tomb Raider fan, but its focus on puzzles, asymmetric cooperative multiplayer, and replayability drew me in. It's hard to believe that wa...more
