Curve Digital made a name for itself in recent years by porting popular independent games like The Swapper and Thomas Was Alone to PlayStation platforms but Iron Fisticle, an upcoming twin-stick arcade arena shooter, is another one of its homegrown projects. Looks fun!

The game supports two-player co-op and has persistent character upgrades, over 150 items (including weapons, power-ups, and score boosts), and boss stages. Looking over the screenshots, it seems there are also bonus sidescrolling levels for a bit of added variety.

Iron Fisticle is coming from Dave Parsons and Dugan Jackson of Stealth Bastard / Stealth Inc. fame with a planned Steam, Humble Store, and Green Man Gaming release on September 26. All told, I'm loving the look of this so far. Not much in terms of footage yet, but there is a clip here.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell leaves no deadly sin unchecked

Johnny Gat's not a good man. Powerful, but not good. That's why he uses each and every of the seven deadly sins to send all of those already dead to the after-afterlife. Most of them look like they deserve it, to be fair. Especially those nipple-rubbing demons.more

Hotline Miami 2 might not be done until early 2015

Hearing that Dennaton Games is taking more time to polish up Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number -- it's now looking like late 2014 or early 2015 -- sits well with me. Totally okay with waiting. I know that should be the default r...more

Geometry Wars 3 releasing in late November

I didn't want to stop playing Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions at PAX Prime. Part of that was due to the years-long gap since the last one released, admittedly, but more importantly the game ended up being a lot of fun. There's no...more
