Preview: Two Worlds II (it's actually fun!)

There are children yet unborn who weep within the bellies of their mothers, knowing they are to be thrust into the same world that gave us Two Worlds. The original RPG from Topware Interactive is so atrocious, so unutterably ...

E3 10: Hands-on Nail'd

I typically don't get along with "realistic" racing games, but I'll love any good racer that does something a little over-the-top. This is why I am somewhat drawn to Nail'd, a new bike racing game from Southpeak Interactive. It trades in realistic physics for sheer speed, and surprisingly it works out quite well.

Two Worlds II debut trailer is all epic n' stuff

Two Worlds II is a game with a hard job. It's got to convince people it's worth buying despite its status as a sequel to the worst RPG made this generation. It's shocking to think Two Worlds ever got a sequel, but watching t...

We think Dementium II is trying to tell us something

Southpeak just sent over a review copy of its DS horror game Dementium II, with a mysterious message attached. As you can see in the above image, it came packed with a diaper and a label that reads, "Seriously... just trust m...

Shop smart, shop Dot-Mart

3D Dot Game Heroes doesn't try to hide what it is and I respect that. One can call it a Zelda clone and they'd be falling right in line with the marketing. Take this brilliantly funny European trailer as an example. The...

This new Dementium II trailer is yucky

A brand new Dementium II trailer was released and it's pretty damn gross. The whole time you're looking at little screens sewed into someone's body. That's pretty messed up Southpeak and Renegade Kid. You guys are freaking s...

Section 8 'Seek and Destroy Map Pack' DLC available now

Remember Section 8? It’s TimeGate Studios’s twitch-FPS, featuring mind-melting swivel action and massive dudes in robot armor that drop from space planes. Keep that last fact in mind a bit longer, because now the...

3D Dot Game Heroes coming to Europe!

Every time we've posted a 3D Dot Game Heroes story, at least one reader asks the same question: Will it come to Europe? A fair question, since Demon's Souls is still due a European release date, and the PAL territory always s...

Dementium II to terrify retail on February 16

SouthPeak has announced that Dementium II for the Nintendo DS will hit shelves on February 16. This means that it can finally stop sending me horrifying post cards in the mail. It's kind of freaking out my post lady.  S...
