Zombies Monsters Robots is ridiculous, cheesy, and so much fun

Hey you, what if I were to tell you about a free-to-play shooter that has you fighting against zombies. Not impressed? Well, I don't blame you. Zombies are kinda all over the place now. Fine, what about a free-to-play shooter...

Obsidian's Armored Warfare takes a spin at the tank genre

Obsidian is probably the last company you'd expect to make anything like Armored Warfare, a free-to-play MMO tank shooter. It's certainly different than anything the company has brought us in the past, that's for sure. I got ...

Chroma: A musical first-person shooter from Harmonix

It makes sense that when word gets out that Harmonix is working on a new game, everyone is going to want to see it. This was exactly the case at an invite-only showing earlier this month, taking place during D.I.C.E. Summit 2...

Hands-on with the 3DS' F2P Steel Diver: Sub Wars

In the middle of last year Nintendo announced it would try out the whole free-to-play scheme with Steel Diver, to the collective sighs of relief from various Nintendo series fans. Now we have details on just how that pricing ...

Rusty's Real Deal Baseball: Haggle a dog to buy games

Leave it to Nintendo to make "free to play" weird. This time, thankfully, it's my kind of weird. Rusty's Real Deal Baseball is not a baseball game. Rather, it's a compilation of baseball-themed minigames. There's a hitting mi...

Mobile slot machine RPG Slot Revolution has strong hooks

I tried Konami's latest money eater this morning. Their iOS, Android, and Kindle title, Slot Revolution, doesn't have the best name. It doesn't do a good job of describing this free-to-play slot machine-based dungeon crawling RPG, but I could tell that it had role-playing roots from the screenshots, so I gave it a spin. A spin, folks.

Extraction: A free-to-play FPS with some solid roots

Many of my staff members wander off in the other direction after hearing things like "free-to-play first-person shooter." I get it. But I wanted to see Extraction's debut at PAX this past weekend because Splash Damage were be...

Tanks a lot: World of Tanks Xbox 360 hands-on

I tried my best to flank the enemy and shoot out his treads while trying out World of Tanks for Xbox 360 at gamescom. That helps. Lesson learned. That was after a previous unsuccessful roll-out where I died so quickly that I ...

Hawken's next big update is all thanks to fan feedback

Hawken has been in open beta for the last several months, but all in all things have been pretty quiet from the giant mech combat simulator. Well that's about to change as developer Adhesive Games unleashes a massive update t...

Preview: The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot

It should go as no surprise that Ubisoft’s The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot caught a lot of people by surprise at this year’s E3. A clever combination of two genres that inherently belong together; this lovechild of...

Preview: Anno Online

Simulation fans have had quite a storied history of games to choose from. While the genre may seem homogenized to outside viewers, sim-nuts can't get enough of the technical nuances of each title, and although they may look s...

Dust 514 now in open beta on the PlayStation 3

CCP's ambitious first-person shooter Dust 514 is now in open beta. The free-to-play shooter, as you may already know, is linked to EVE Online, the crazy space game that's an actual viable export of Iceland. I'm not joking.&n...

Preview: Catching up with Marvel Heroes' closed beta

In our prior coverage of Marvel Heroes, Steven set the stage for the free-to-play MMO. On paper, it all sounds rather good: an action-RPG starring iconic heroes and villains being worked on by Diablo creator David Brevik...

Is it weird that I have a favorite shape? Probably. Regardless, I have one, and it's the hexagon. It's all Heroes of Might and Magic's fault, really, and I can't look at the shape without thinking about kicking the living day...

TGS: Phantasy Star Online 2 on the Vita is a great fit

I've put somewhere around 70 hours into the PC version of Phantasy Star Online 2. Despite being free to play, it's a fun and complex multiplayer title that's been getting a steady stream of updates since release. Having playe...

TGS: Picotto Knights is a free-to-play Castle Crashers

Castle Crashers became an international hit in a way no one expected an American indie game could achieve, so it's only natural for a Japanese game seemingly influenced by it to appear on the marketplace. Picotto Knights is ...
