Third-person shooter


The Sniper Elite series has been around for quite some time, entertaining fans since 2005 on pretty much every platform known to man. But alongside of the core historical-centric games there has been a lesser known sub-franch...


The zombie saturation of the current videogame landscape will soon see another mindless meat shooter with the release of Zombie Army Trilogy this March. As if the literally hundreds of other zombie-themed games weren't enoug...


Developing a Gears of War-like cover shooter for Nintendo 3DS is unconventional, but that's just what VD-Dev did with Ironfall: Invasion. Featuring both local and online multiplayer, as well as an 11-stage campaign, the project seems fairly ambitious for the handheld, and as you'd expect, there are mixed results. While multiplayer turned out well enough, the campaign is a mess.


Well, I don't know what to believe anymore. This trailer has explosions, lycanthropes, and action up the wazoo. Everything looks so pretty, and the mustaches look real enough that I'm trying to pet them through my computer s...


Can you imagine Splatoon's "Inklings" looking more like tofu than squids? Speaking with Famitsu, the shooter's designers (Hisashi Nogami, Yusuke Amano, and Tsubasa Sakaguchi) revealed the creatures actually started out that w...


The Order: 1886 opens up in a fairly gritty fashion -- a first-person sequence involving a near drowning, by way of water torture. It begins with a bang, thrusting you into this unknown, and frankly frightening world whe...


Although the embargo for The Order: 1886 is Thursday morning, many gamers have gotten their hands on the title this past weekend and...they've completed it. Since there is no multiplayer component, controversy has been s...


Third-person shooter protagonists spend a bulk of their time glued to chest-high walls, so it's fitting that the highlight of The Order: 1886's collector's edition depicts this very action. In this unboxing video that P...


Splatoon finally has a launch month announced on Wii U, and it's May 2015. Announced during today's Nintendo Direct presentation, we also got a couple of new details for the upcoming colorful third-person shooter. Splatoon is...


As a single-player only, narrative-driven game, The Order: 1886 feels a tad quaint (in a good way), as even the most classically cinematic, narrative-driven things of recent years (Last of Us, Uncharted, Mass Effect) aff...


I'm still a bit wary of the PS4-exclusive The Order, but if they've last minute reimagined the game as a collection of Scary Stories to the Tell in the Dark sung by disgusting children, they might have a good 2D horror game on their hands. 


This feels vaguely familiar, doesn't it? A somber trailer punctuated by an eerily haunting, soft-spoken song. Gears of War struck gold with this approach many years back with the "Mad World" trailer. The Order: 1886's a...


The first quarter of 2015 looks to be an exciting period for games. But one such title is looking to keep players satiated all the way till its release. After a successful closed alpha period, Evolve is gearing up for another...

Ready at Dawn released a new trailer this morning imploring prospective The Order: 1886 players to "join the London police." Before you rush into things headfirst, take one minute to watch what happens to those law...


I finally played The Order: 1886, Ready at Dawn's upcoming PS4, monster-filled, alternate-London-history third-person shooter here at Paris Games Week. I still really want to like it. I like a lot of things about it. Well, ma...

Tomorrow, Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will be released to the public. It's basically the same idea as Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition -- a re-release with promises of enhanced visuals for current-gen systems ...


Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare has already done right by its users by providing good post-launch support via free downloadable content, and it is continuing on that path with tomorrow's Legends of the Lawn update. The DLC...


What can we expect from renowned development studios when it comes to creating games for current consoles? If you're in the camp that prioritizes stunning visuals and character models, Uncharted 4 looks as if it'll scra...


All those other trailers you've seen for Sleeping Dogs? Forget those. They weren't nearly as definitive as this definitive trailer for Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is. This is the be-all end-all of Sleeping Dogs&nb...


If you're anxious to get an early start on Motiga's stunning new online team action game Gigantic, then I've got good news for you. The alpha testing phase has begun and the company is actively recruiting play...

Warframe has just released on the Xbox One, and it's undergone some changes since it launched -- mostly good changes, meant to add more content to the game in the form of items and missions. It still fails in all of the same areas however, mostly its inability to craft an interesting world, and the free-to-play scheme that encourages far too much grinding.


The Dark Phantom is a neo-noir comic-book influenced third-person shooter about a man calling himself the "Dark Phantom" as he hunts down criminals across the city. Sound familiar? The Dark Phantom is reminiscent of Rorschac...

If you're new to this or simply need a refresher course, this Sunset Overdrive video should get you up to speed on all the points that Insomniac Games is looking to hit with its quirky, open-world shooter. Constant move...


Go, go, go. Always on the move. That's all that we've seen of Insomniac Games' Sunset Overdrive since its initial 2013 reveal. Seriously, think back. Do you remember seeing any footage of the game where the oddball prota...


Remedy Entertainment has made a living by following a tried-and-true formula: take a third-person shooter, support it with a catchy and innovative gameplay mechanic, and wrap it all up with an emphasis on narrative. Max Payne...


A listing for Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has been spotted on Xbox.com. Gamer In A Box discovered a box art image, along with a single screenshot. Capcom has yet to release any news of a new game, but it does make sense that...


One of the hands-down biggest hits of Microsoft's press conference at gamescom 2014 was the Quantum Break demo. In case you missed the show, here's the eight-minute demo that played. I could do without all of the third-...


Technically, the existence of Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition was just a rumor up until now, outed by a telling Amazon listing. Square Enix confirmed everyone's suspicions today by formally announcing the remake and p...

So you true, true fans are going to need to double up and knock your mother's ashes off the mantle to make room for two statues. 


Lara Croft may have moved onto new and exciting hardware, but that might not mean that she's seen the last of the faithful standbys from yesteryear. It appears as if Rise of the Tomb Raider, the franchise's next installment s...

A new 4v4 multiplayer game was announced by Nintendo, and will be a third-person shooter. Well, kind of. Ink is the key gameplay element in Splatoon that is used in many ways. It's shot on the ground so you and your tea...
