Typing of the Dead Overkill gets sweary with Filth DLC

Considering that Typing of the Dead: Overkill wasn't known about until the day of release and almost never saw the light of day, it's great to see more DLC packs extending the life of the game further. First there was the Sha...

Four Alien: Isolation screenshots have surfaced

The Alien game rumored to be in development at Creative Assembly, Alien: Isolation, has gone through another leak following a pair of images getting out earlier this week. I hate to say it, but the disastrous Aliens: Colonial...

Play Sonic Racing Transformed for free this weekend photo
Play Sonic Racing Transformed for free this weekend
by Jordan Devore

One of the best kart racers in years can be played for free this weekend on Steam. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is yours for the trying now through Sunday at 1:00pm Pacific.

If you like what you see, the full game is currently on sale for $4.99 until Monday at 10:00am Pacific. This version has a number of exclusive characters, including the Spy, Pyro, and Heavy from Team Fortress 2. (There's no beating Joe Musashi, though.)

Steam has had its fair share of good games going free for the weekend, but Transformed is one I urge all Sega fans to check out. It single-handedly rekindled my love of kart racing.

The Typing of the Dead: Overkill DLC goes Shakespeare

I was over the moon when The Typing of the Dead: Overkill was released, as I totally loved the original Typing of the Dead in concept and play. But maybe the text offerings were a little too vulgar for you and you'd appr...

Review: Company of Heroes 2: Victory at Stalingrad DLC photo
Review: Company of Heroes 2: Victory at Stalingrad DLC
by Joshua Derocher

Victory at Stalingrad is paid DLC that's a part of the larger Turning Point update, which also includes new free multiplayer maps, the World Builder tools, four free commanders, and four premium commanders. The free stuff is great, so even if you don't want to buy more DLC for Company of Heroes 2, you will still find something new if you jump back into the game.

I really enjoyed the base game quite a bit, and it has added a lot of content since its release. It's also been patched up, balanced, and polished even further. Finally, the new content is here, and I can't wait to fail miserably at all of it.

Review: Football Manager 2014 photo
Review: Football Manager 2014
by Alasdair Duncan

As I finish this review, English Premier Division side Tottenham Hostspur, managed by Andre Villa Boas, sit fourth in the league, despite some inconsistent performances. In Football Manager 2014, Tottenham Hotspur, managed by myself, are just inside the top half of the table and are lucky to still be involved in the Europa Cup.

Videogames often criticized for being power fantasies, letting players live out unlikely dreams of being heroes and warriors. Football Manager doesn't do that; it overwhelms you with information and makes you eat all drunken armchair punditry you've spewed whilst watching your favorite team. No, you couldn't do a better job and Football Manager 2014 is going to prove it.

Review: Mario & Sonic at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games photo
Review: Mario & Sonic at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games
by Kyle MacGregor

The prospect of Mario and Sonic appearing side by side in the same videogame was once a near-unthinkable fantasy. But it happened. Thanks to the demise of Sega's console business, the bitter rivals eventually put aside their differences and joined forces to create a novel assemblage of Olympic sports minigames for the Nintendo Wii.

That was six years ago. In the interim the unlikely pairing has since spawned a biannual franchise with three entries across as many systems. And like clockwork, just in time for February's international competition, the iconic mascots have reared their heads for fourth.
