Orc Attack  



Orc Attack's orcs attack with colon explosions


3:30 PM on 01.02.2012



The fart joke is one of the mighty pillars of comedy because it's so basic. Any embarrassing action accompanied by a sound effect is automatically rendered hilarious to all witnesses. And although good timing can amplify the effect, it's a joke that doesn't usually require any setup whatsoever. It just happens and it's funny.

Unless you're the gang at Casual Brothers, who decided that their fart-joke-cum-action-game Orcs Attack needed a bit of exposition. In this four-player co-op brawler coming to Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, PC and OnLive late in 2012, orcs driven out of their homes by ecologically-challenged humans have developed dangerously explosive flatulence due to consuming fruits grown in their now poisonous environment. Now they're turning the tables and using this new found anal armament to seek vengeance.

Looks silly, fun and very promising for a game with up to nearly a year remaining until release. Hell, the above video is footage from a demo level from E3 of last year, meaning things may have yet progressed quite significantly already in the last six months. Worth keeping an eye on, I'd say.

Review: Axiom Verge

It seems like a foregone conclusion when looking at Axiom Verge that comparisons are going to be made to Metroid. It is, without doubt, similar in more ways than it differs from Nintendo's iconic franchise. The differences matter, though, and Axiom Verge merges classic environment design with new mechanical twists, producing a game that feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.more

Whoa, Myriad looks like no other twin-stick shooter

It takes a lot for a twin-stick shooter to get my attention these days. I like the genre just fine, but it's so saturated that it's hard to muster any excitement for the next one that looks just like the last one. Thankfully...more
