Insurgency 2 is a thing you can help fund


4:00 PM on 07.11.2012



Insurgency, the acclaimed, semi-realistic modern military mod for Half-Life 2, came at a time when Medal of Honor and Call of Duty were still set in World War II. Today, the creators of the popular mod formed a Kickstarter for a sequel. Though modern military shooters are far from scarce in 2012, the developer has plans to make it standout from other shooters on the marketplace.

The developer says the game will closely resembles the early days of the mod and is influenced by Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear and Day of Defeat. These are two of my favorite games as well, but I don't really see the similarity in the above video. What I see is another fast-paced tactical, class-based shooter set in the Middle East. Then again, I don't have a fondness for the original Insurgency that others might possess.

The game is being developed by much of the original core team, many of which have been picked up by Gearbox, Crytek, Blizzard, and other major studios. If you are looking for a more realistic shooter or are a fan of the original, you can help expand and expedite the project by contributing to the game's Kickstarter page. The developer is asking for $180, 000 but has stretch goals going as high as $800,000.

Strafe is the goriest, most realistic shooter of 1996

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too real...more

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more
