I adore watching VFX studio reels, so when I heard that Konami had released one for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, I just couldn't help myself. I had to click. And here we are.
At three minutes in length, the video is wo... more
TimeGate Studios was making a free-to-play third-person combat game called Minimum that seemed like it had potential. It continues to despite the fact that its creator went through bankruptcy. Now, publisher Atari has "worke... more
Responding to a comment on the EU PlayStation Blog post about The Last of Us' final content release for Season Pass owners -- a bunch of new stuff for multiplayer and the single-player's "hardest challenge" yet, Grounded Mode... more
Hotline Miami by way of Stranglehold or any other John Woo flick, at least. Which is appropriate for the setting. Though I'm also reminded of Michael Mann's Miami Vice movie for some reason.
I guess it can't exactly be Hotli... more
So Kero Blaster is apparently pretty much finished, despite Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya (Cave Story) originally scrapping the entire project (known as Gero Blaster) and doing the whole game over. It stars a businessman frog and hi... more
I'm not sure which alternate dimension Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare came from or how it got here but PopCap's wacky third-person shooter has been a pleasant surprise. Against all odds, the game keeps on giving: another... more
With Housemarque's 2010 top-down zombie shooter Dead Nation releasing on PlayStation 4 last month, I had wondered about the status of the long-promised but little-talked-about PS Vita port. It's still coming, we were assured.... more
A third-person shooter in which combatants are humans pretending to be airplanes -- this is Cult of the Wind. Despite the usual fears that something like this will lose its audience not long after launching, I'm so charmed b... more
Today at PAX East, Vlambeer's Rami Ismail announced that their latest game, Nuclear Throne, will feature cooperative multiplayer. The mode will allow for up to four players to play simultaneously, either locally or over ... more
Whether it's the smartass name or the numerous references to action stars, there's nothing subtle about Broforce. Then there's the seemingly never-ending barrage of explosions and showers of pixelated blood that make the stag... more
Here's a trailer for The Last of Us Remastered which shows a bunch of accolades and an all-too-brief snippet of gameplay footage. Sorry, there's no side-by-side graphics breakdown here.
Only time will tell how far the enhanc... more
A GameStop product page for the Watch Dogs Season Pass describes what the $19.99 purchase will cover, at least in general terms: "a unique single-player campaign featuring a new playable character plus more missions, weapons,... more
Switchblade Monkeys' Secret Ponchos is no longer only coming to PlayStation 4 -- the spaghetti western multiplayer game is also on track for a PC release this year.
You knew this was coming but, yes, the title will launch fir... more
Epic has kept mostly quiet about Fortnite for years now and in that time I've gone from being excited to not caring at all to really, really caring. Now that the studio has opened alpha sign-ups and shared a bunch of informat... more
I really want Broforce in my life. As of today, that can be a reality as the game has launched in Steam Early Access. You may now feel free to exchange $14.99 for the ability to play on PC or Mac.
A new trailer has also... more
Talk about intense! D'you think the players in this trailer for Warside ever take their finger off the firing button? When I first started watching the trailer above, I initially though this was a 2D platformer/shooter in th... more
Rockstar has detailed what it has in store for GTA Online and while there's quite a lot of content planned, my eyes went straight for the line about the long-awaited Heist Missions. They're coming at some point this spring --... 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
Even though Microsoft says it has a "renewed focus on Windows and PC gaming" internally, we've been hearing that sentiment for a while and little if anything has come to fruition yet. It'd be unexpected for the company to bri... more
Born Ready Games isn't moving on from Strike Suit Zero just yet. The Director's Cut is set for a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launch slightly later than anticipated, on April 8, 2014 for $19.99.

How desperate does Microsoft think we are to play anything Halo on Steam? We'll see if the company's decision to bring Halo: Spartan Assault to the platform next week pays off, I suppose. This overhead dual-stick shooter will... more
In an effort to get you to finally install Origin, Electronic Arts has begun a new On the House promotion in which "full games, expansions, and more" can be downloaded for free.
The first selection is one those who can deal w... more
After no small amount of effort (and a couple of glitches that I am a bit peeved about), I finally managed to complete all of the challenges in Luftrausers and the reward you get for doing so is totally amazing. more
Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts was released into the wild today for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U. Activision released this trailer to accompany the launch. I love it so, so much. It's less about the gameplay, which... more
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... more
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 ... more
It's been known for a long time now that the PlayStation 3 and PS4 versions of Watch Dogs would get a little something extra and here's a good -- possibly even great -- look at that content. As far as trailers for the game g... more
Armored Warfare is an upcoming modern military tank shooter for the PC that's being developed by Obsidian, the studio that brought us South Park: The Stick of Truth, Fallout: New Vegas, and much more. The debut trailer ... more
I really enjoyed Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, which was a pleasant surprise amidst a sea of "me too" shooters. I enjoyed it so much in fact that I still play it, and I find myself spending more time with it l... more
I've been slavishly playing Luftrausers like a madman this past weekend, and I'm shaping up to be a fairly decent player. To help you get a sense of the different Rausers you can pilot, I put together this little video ... more
Vlambeer's air combat game, Luftrausers, has finally been cleared for take-off, following a wait that seemed far longer than anybody expected it would. It's been worth holding out for, and fans of high speed, challenging shoot-em-ups have something pretty special on their hands. 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
Do we still care about game lengths? Really, truly care? (I say "we" as if we're some sort of hive mind, which obviously and thankfully isn't the case.) Probing for Watch Dogs information on Twitter, a fan asked how long it w... more
I've been pleasantly surprised by the way Electronic Arts and PopCap have handled Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. First, the game itself is loads of fun -- the foundation is solid. But more than that, they don't have paid... more
Sometimes, players want to take in a thought-provoking narrative, with realistic character development and emotional events. Other times, players just want to shoot robots and blow things up. Meltdown is definitely meant for... more
Glorkian Warrior is the latest from Pixeljam Games and it looks just wonderful. It has elements from Galaga, but it looks like the longer you play the more of a shoot 'em up it turns out to be as you take on procedurally gen... more
Activision put out a few new screenshots of Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts, releasing for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on March 25. They depict animals to be shot and environments in which they can be shot, lik... more

It's as if we slipped into some alternate dimension. The long-awaited Plants vs. Zombies 2 went straight to mobile, passing over PC fans, and while it wasn't bad -- not at all -- I sure lost interest.
Instead, it's PopCap's t... more
Doujin shooter Gigantic Army is out now on Steam for a measly $5.99. You should check out our review and buy it maybe. That is, if you like fun things. You do like fun things, don't you?

You know who else would appreciate seeing more Metal Gear Solid games on PC? Me. And a bunch of you too, I'm willing to bet. The more opportunities for people to play it, the better.

Sidescrolling run-and-gun games are, arguably, a classic that never seem to go out of style. Games like Contra and Gunstar Heroes, with their multiple weapon types, hundreds of attacking enemies, and billions of bullets whizz... more
If you came up to me and told me I could be this turned around, bearingless and disoriented, on a two dimensional plane of movement, I would say, "Gee, that's oddly specific, why are you telling me this?"
And then you would f... more
The original Rambo is more than just a guilty pleasure for action enthusiasts. While the latter two in the trilogy are arguably just popcorn flicks in terms of their overall impact on the industry as a whole, the fi... more
Plants vs. Zombies has been on one wild ride since PopCap was acquired by Electronic Arts. What started off as a grassroots (hah) series with humble beginnings on the PC has become an exclusive-heavy franchise -- with Pl... more
Steel Diver kind of came and went in 2011 on the 3DS. As a brand new IP for Nintendo it was a gamble, and one that seemingly didn't pay off with critics or fans. But they're back in 2014 with a free-to-play version title... more
No, it's not a ploy to trick people into thinking they're buying Titanfall. Titan Invasion is a collection of two indie PC games; the Space Invaders-styled Titan Attacks!, which won me over with its well-done trailer (above)... more
