Alcatraz -- has there been a more infamous prison? Immortalized in movies from the likes of Point Break to The Rock, the Bay Area's notorious penitentiary hasn't featured in too many games, so it's exciting to see screenshots of Daedalic Entertainment's new adventure game 1954: Alcatraz.

The studio behind 2012's Yesterday has me immediately interested due to my love of the noir-ish setting and the tantalizing idea of breaking out of Alcatraz. The game stars Joe, who is eager to escape the harsh confines of the Rock after being sentenced to 40 years in prison after a successful armed robbery.

Joe's plan relies on his wife Christine but she's being threatened by Joe's partner in crime Mickey, who want's to know where Joe stashed the loot. It sounds like a great idea; busting out of Alcatraz has been the stuff of myths and urban legends and the setup sounds like there's the opportunity to have multiple character's working in tandem. We'll see if Joe makes it out in late 2014.

Escape from 1954: Alcatraz

San Francisco is an underused setting in games. I still need to play Driver: San Francisco, but I'm not sure how much it takes advantage of the city. Daedalic's new adventure game 1954: San Francisco seems to, as you split p...more

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2

This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28. more

With gamescom now behind us, you'd figure that CD Projekt RED would keep a tight lid on all things related to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But apparently not, as it would seem. A week after the show, the developers decided to un...more

Check out new direct-feed Bloodborne gameplay

Last week, I got to go hands-on with Bloodborne. This visually evocative and bleak follow-up to Dark Souls II is a change of pace, but also something that feels and plays very much like the games of the past. While the change...more
