The very core of Turtle Rock's Evolve revolves around the four versus one premise, and even though it's only been two months since we last saw it, the "one" side of things has since undergone some changes. The developers... more
GameSpy Technology is shutting down on May 31, 2014 and that's real bad news for the many games that rely on the service for online functionality such as multiplayer matchmaking and leaderboards. It's largely unclear what wil... more
I'll hand it to Infinity Ward for spicing things up by included the Predator in Call of Duty: Ghosts with its Devastation DLC pack. More moves like that and the studio might just win over some of the fans who have moved on to... more
Respawn Entertainment is rolling out its next major patch for Titanfall across all platforms today and, most notably, it grants players the ability to create their own private matches. These matches can hold between 2 to 12 p... more
The industry is currently trying to support two generations of consoles at once, which means game publishers have to decide what the safest bet is for their next projects. Some companies are creating the the same content for ... more
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is official. The latest entry in Gearbox's shooter looter takes place between the original Borderlands and Borderlands 2, hence the Pre-Sequel moniker. The new game is based on the Borderlands 2 en... more
I've got kind of a thing for Wolfenstein 3D, since it was one of the first PC games I ever played, but also World War II and alternate histories in general. So excuse me while I indulge in some inappropriate levels of excite... more
We're approaching the tail-end of Microsoft and Respawn's staggered release of Titanfall, as the Xbox 360 version is set to release tomorrow. So, what does it look like? Take a gander at the first video of it out in the wild... more
Awash on a beach amidst scattered boxes and waterlogged wood, Betrayer drew me into its chiaroscuro world immediately. Behind me was a blinding, blown out whiteness and an impassable expanse of sea. Ahead of me was intrigue, ... more
Battlefield 4 has a ton of easter eggs. Such as the case with the Megalodon, which can be discovered in the Naval Strike DLC on the Nansha Strike map.
And yes, you will die if you get caught underneath its jump. more
I vaguely recall Sony announcing that it would pull its servers for the Resistance trilogy on PlayStation 3 this year and it's happening soon. Real soon. Consider this your last chance to play those games online (including co... more
Infinity Ward's DLC capabilities may not be up to snuff compared to Treyarch's, but the fact that they're trying is good enough for me. Call of Duty: Ghost's Onslaught DLC was a major step up in quality when compared to their... more
Punchy, semi-auto shotguns are my jam. I'm not playing 2013's Rise of the Triad, but maybe I should be. Update 1.4 has gone live and while it most notably introduces the Doomstick, there are also six community maps added to ... more
Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation is now out for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 for $14.99. You get four new multiplayer maps, a new gun, a new chapter in the Extinction co-op mode, and most important of all, you can play as the g... more
I really love Nuclear Throne. The procedurally generated stages and high challenge level have kept me coming back time and again as Vlambeer has continued to tweak and expand the game in Early Access. Today comes perhaps the... more
Killzone: Shadow Fall Season Pass owners and those with $9.99 to spare can download the game's first big multiplayer offering, the Insurgent Pack, as of today.
There's a lot included here, but the new Insurgent class and its... more

The new trailer for Call of Duty Ghost's second DLC pack, Devastation, is pretty standard stuff for the first few minutes. You know -- the typical overview of maps, lots of gunfire, and an Eminem track laid over it. Then you... more
Because Battlefield 4 -- a game released five months ago -- is still having issues, the newest bit of DLC was delayed on both Xbox One and PC. After two days the Xbox One version is now good to go this morning,... more
Titanfall cheaters, your time is up. Respawn has been using the FairFight system to detect cheaters on the PC since the game's launch, and if you're caught you will be banned from the general population. You can still play th... more
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... more
BioShock Infinite had an interesting run, with player reception all over the board. Some loved it, some hated it, others reveled in its celebration of violence, some disapproved. It's probably going to be a long time bef... more
As much as I truly am down for more Far Cry, I don't have it in me to play through another tropical island setting. There's been talk before that the still-unannounced Far Cry 4 will travel to the Himalayas -- a much more com... more
Wolfenstein: The New Order is one of those games that sort of just exists. While there are neat aspects to the game -- I'm a sucker for alternate realities and mechs, to be clear -- it's hard not to be largely uninterested e... more
We have known about the PlayStation Vita port of Borderlands 2 for a while, but had not yet seen or heard much more about it. The port is due out some time this year, and now we have the first look at how the shooter plays o... more
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... more
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 ... more
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... more
If you're anything like Phil or I you haven't put down Titanfall since it came out on Tuesday. It's really refreshing to jump back into a competitive multiplayer game. Now that I'm thinking about it, the last time I got into ... more
As if we aren't going to look crazy enough playing games with Oculus Rift, this gun peripheral is going to up the ante a bit. But, that's the tradeoff for some technology that's pretty damn cool.
This particular gun was desi... more
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... more
Respawn producer Drew McCoy had some time to kill before boarding a plane, so he took to Twitter to answer fan questions regarding Titanfall. Things that we learned from his Tweets include that they're working on a companion ... more
The first-person shooter business knows its audience. Year after year there are military shooters that are stuck in the "newer" era of shooters, offering up realistic experiences and killstreaks galore, which gamers eat up an... more
Natural Selection II is the first-person shooter meets real-time strategy title, and two weeks ago developer Unknown Worlds hosted their World Championship tournament for the game. It was the culmination of months of qualifi... more
Oh it's another resolution story. How great.

Destiny is coming out for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 this September. Those of you that have been following the game since it was revealed know this, but those just learning about it from this ne... more
I'm a sucker for a post-apocalyptic wasteland (I grew up in Glasgow, go figure), so Ashen Rift: A man and his dog looks to be the type of game I'd like to play. Set after a cataclysmic event, a lone survivor heads to the mid... more
[Update: Here it is!]
As you may have seen, the official Titanfall review embargo has just lifted. Where's our review? It's on the way, and here's why we're waiting to publish.
In short, with how big of an online focus T... more
Alright, everyone -- let's play a game. I'm going to tell you what's included in the recently confirmed Titanfall Season Pass, and you act elated about what a totally sweet deal it is. Ready? Let's do this.

We're a week away from Titanfall (god forbid we post about it less than twice a day) and while we know it will get DLC (because of course it will and because they've said as much), post release plans haven't been explained.
Titanfall is just one week from release, which also means we're nearing hype critical mass. Here is today's reminder that Titanfall will provide a much-needed feather in Microsoft's cap when the game releases for W... more
As a combination of the first-person shooter genre and the modern-day roguelikes, Tower of Guns is being pushed as a “lunchbreak FPS.” After playing, I can say this is a pretty accurate description, except I only ... more
In a blog post about the current state of Battlefield 4's multiplayer, DICE wrote that fixing netcode issues with the game is "one of the top priorities." I'd sure hope so -- few things are more irritating in competitive game... more
Property damages claims galore. They'd be headache, but they'd get you money. Muggings would be down (and then way up when muggers got mechs). You'd have someone to let your dog out to pee while you're work.
Plus you'd get to be an offbeat, meticulously unkempt bearded guy who's nicely dressed. Isn't that what everyone wants? more
We're one week out from the launch of Titanfall, and there's been so many leaks on the game over the last few days. All the leaks come from reddit, where a user has released several photos of the maps, including top down imag... more
Drunken Robot Pornography has a unique concept to go along with its memorable title. You take control of Reuben Mastumoto, who is having a real bad day. He accidentally made his robot bartender, Tim, self-aware and presumably... more
