There's now a 10-hour demo for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has slipped out of my nightly rotation, but I clocked I don't even wanna know how many hours when I was still actively playing. If you were thinking of getting into the wacky shooter but haven't committe...

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sure is a name

Based on a now-removed promotional listing found on PlayStation Network (alternate view here), the next Call of Duty will be called Infinite Warfare. Assuming that's true, and it sounds just silly enough that it probably is, where does the...

 
Alienation review
Going into Alienation, I expected two things. First and foremost, I knew I was in for some frenetic arcade-style action. This is a twin-stick shooter from Housemarque, the studio behind Super Stardust HD and Resogun, so that'...   read

There's a slew of great concepts this year at PAX East and within Devolver Digital's booth we have Ruiner, a cyberpunk action-packed shooter. It stood out to me specifically as some kind of Blade Runner and Drive movie crosso...   read

Here's another crucial Overwatch play that helps explain why it's so great

Every so often I see an Overwatch clip that catches my eye. A few months ago, there was a crucial Genji play that looked like something out of Super Smash Bros. This one isn't nearly as exciting, but it's cool all the same that it's even al...

Ruiner is a slick-looking cyberpunk shooter

Reikon Games is taking us to 2091 with its upcoming top-down action-shooter Ruiner, and based on the cyberpunk imagery and snappy combat shown in this trailer, I am down. Where did this come from? It's being made in Warsaw by folks who pre...

 
Lawbreakers
Boss Key Productions was all about free-to-play last year for LawBreakers, and then flip-flopped recently in March, noting that the game was now a premium product. Who does it think it is, Hillary Clinton? Alas, free-to-play for LawBreakers is dead, and Cliffy B helped kill it.   read

Here's everything you're missing if you're not in the Gears of War 4 beta yet

A few days ago, Steven used his words to describe the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta. That's fun because we live in an age where videos take so much precedence over the written word. Still, writing about Gears has a sort of ridi...

 
Call of Duty DLC review

We're two weeks out from the Overwatch open beta

Housemarque's Alienation really snuck up on me

Dropshots are for badminton, not Gears of War
