Shoot 'em ups are basically the sharks of the videogame industry. Relics from a bygone era, they've remained steadfast since the dawn of time. And really, would you have it any other way? Exemplars of the mantra "if it ain't broke don't fix it," these venerable killing machines achieved perfection long ago and have no intent on changing any time soon.

Over the years Treasure has amassed an impressive résumé of STGs which includes Radiant Silvergun, Ikaruga, and Sin & Punishment: Star Successor. But what's the developer working on now? Word is they've trained their sights on the 3DS. CEO Masato Maegawa divulged to gamesTM that the company is currently hard at work on an exclusive action title for Nintendo's portable. That's not a whole lot to go on at this point but, as a shark enthusiast, I'm incredibly excited. Because sharks, dear reader, are awesome. Always have been and always will be.

Fortified is a base defense shooter inspired by 1950s science fiction

Admittedly, Fortified looks rough around the edges at this pre-alpha stage, but I'm liking the concept of a third-person shooter centered around base defense in a 1950s sci-fi setting. You and up to three friends will throw ...more

Wear the carcass of Chester Cheetah in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

I was prepared to get mildly annoyed at this Cheetos partnership with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, despite the fact that it's not the first time the game has dabbled in brand-sponsored character variants. (There were ...more
