E3: Disturbed's John Moyer penning Scivelation soundtrack

While meeting with TopWare Interactive to discuss their upcoming sci-fi shooter, Scivelation, all I was actually shown of the game was its logo. But what I heard of the game brought an interesting surprise. Accompanying the logo on screen was a dramatic, layered orchestral track. Very fitting for Scivelation's post-apocalyptic setting, it was moody and rather beautiful.

Then I was told that it was composed by John Moyer, bassist of the metal band Disturbed, and my mind was blown. TopWare's PR Director Vincent Harding explained that Moyer has been working closely with the developers, receiving key assets and drawing upon them for inspiration in creating the music. 

I honestly never would have guessed. I don't typically doubt the capability of musicians to expand into other styles and genres of music because it's kind of a stupid thing to do. Everyone likes to experiment, after all, and you don't get into playing music professionally without a love for it. Just goes to show you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

Review: Ironfall: Invasion

Developing a Gears of War-like cover shooter for Nintendo 3DS is unconventional, but that's just what VD-Dev did with Ironfall: Invasion. Featuring both local and online multiplayer, as well as an 11-stage campaign, the project seems fairly ambitious for the handheld, and as you'd expect, there are mixed results. While multiplayer turned out well enough, the campaign is a mess.more

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...more
