While it would have been nice for Gears of War: Judgment to come out of the gate with more content, the fact that some of the post-release DLC is free helps reduce the sting.
Following the Haven map and Execution mode, anothe... more
On Tuesday, owners of the VIP Season Pass for Gears of War: Judgment will get more mileage out of their purchase with the arrival of a second map pack named Call to Arms. Everyone else can get this multiplayer content on Apri... more
Ubisoft has been slow to roll out media for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, and that's not changing much from the looks of it. This new teaser trailer is exactly that -- a teaser, with a date and everything, for another video. A... more
There's still no exact release date for Atlus and Old School Games' wacky cooperative third-person shooter God Mode, though the publisher does have the final cover art, viewable below.
A game's box art doesn't seem quite as s... more

Prior to being picked up by Jagex and released to a wider audience on Steam, Ace of Spades had an alpha build that was available as a free download. While both versions carry the same name, it was the earlier Ace of Spades wi... more
This isn't the first time Electronic Arts-published games have seen crossover items, and it will almost certainly not be the last. Those who have played Mass Effect 3 and still have the save file to prove it need only buy a ... more
Between the four-person multiplayer, seven new levels, and inclusion of Pale Wing, I am so ready to play through Earth Defense Force 2017 again on the PlayStation Vita. Mentally, that is -- I still don't have a Vita to play i... more
Pig masks. Are they ever not terrifying? This trailer for Hotline Miami, a mix of live action and footage taken from the top-down action game -- or, in Devolver Digital's words, the "top-down f*ck-'em-up" -- seems like a nat... more
Ubisoft and Techland have announced Call of Juarez: The Gunslinger for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and PC. Before you even think to ask, the answer is "yes" -- they're returning to the Wild West. No more of that m... more
I still can't believe this is an actual thing that is happening.

Remember Fur Fighters? The PS2/Dreamcast classic was never successful, but did enjoy a lot of critical praise when it released in 2000. The chaps who made it haven't let go, with former Bizarre Creations staff -- now working ... more
Bohemia Interactive Studio is showing off a few complex sims at E3 this year, one of which is Arma 3. To its credit, even a slowly paced, open-world shooter can provide enough unique variety to get a tired editor smiling and ... more
It’s not always necessary for games to have any sort of ultimate meaning or context, but when they do, they’re made a bit more satisfying. When you’re given a role, are required to shoot specific anomalies, ... more
Game Informer -- seemingly in an attempt to scoop the Internet detectives that were likely going to spoil its exclusive -- has gone ahead and blown its wad to reveal the recently teased Gears of War game. It's going to be cal... more
At PAX East, the first gameplay footage of Trion Worlds' Defiance was unveiled. This game is notable for two reasons, the first being that it's a massively multiplayer online shooter for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

It looks like the future is going to be a scary place with invisible, all-seeing assassins who blow crap up and break down doors and windows for fun. My vision of a future solider involves more singing and dancing and possib... more

Rayforce is now out on the App store for iPhone and iPod users. It's the classic shoot 'em up you remember, but there are some new features like the obvious touch controls. Additionally, you can view the game in the origin... more
There seems to be a certain stigma in gaming, as of late, that Japanese developers have lost their touch when it comes to creating experiences that appeal as much to western gamer as they do to the Japanese. Once dominant ... more
I had forgotten about AfterFall: InSanity, a post-apocalyptic third-person shooter with mutants. No wait, come back -- it actually looks intriguing. Previously, this was teased as having a more ambiguous Q4 2011 release; it'... more
No, I don't have any sincere expectations for Cabela's Survival: Shadows of Katmai, but I do have a minor obsession with the game after seeing its box art.
These new screenshots and trailer are more or less in line with what... more
I'm fairly certain there has yet to be a Cabela's-branded game that wouldn't be an absolute blast to play while trashed. This looks to be true of Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Hunting Party for Kinect, which was just announced fo... more
Rounding out the multiplayer maps in Gears of War 3 is Gridlock, because of course it is. I have not-so-fond memories of rushing forward and immediately dying in the Gears 1 version of the map. Good times.
In total, we're loo... more
[Update: The original screenshots we ran were, in fact, old. Someone let the Ghoulies run wild in the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe offices again. Q-Games sent over the latest batch of images, so check 'em out.]

There exists quite a few rules which one must follow in order to craft the perfect undead apocalypse. Key ingredients include a small ground of survivors, weapons aplenty, and of course, it must be set in either a shopping ma... more
Sega has put up some new screenshots for Binary Domain, and it's looking as washed-out as ever. I really hope they put some bolder colors in before this game releases, because it's looking so very unremarkable. I don't like t... more
Gamescom has drowned me in a sea of SEGA assets today, in case you couldn't tell. Here's the next selection -- some screens and art for the hot looking downloadable title, Renegade Ops. This game is one that I'm seriously loo... more
Binary Domain may be the most grey game I have ever seen. There's some interesting design at play, especially with the game's various robots, but the actual scenery is as drab as they come. It's not even a pleasant grey (such... more
The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut will be presenting two all-new levels when it arrives exclusively on PS3. The first of those levels, Naked Terror, has been revealed today for your viewing pleasure.
This l... more
Long game names lead to boring headlines, due to me not having enough words to fit in all the information! There's quite a bit of information to get through, too, since the PlayStation Blog updated with a bunch of new assets ... more
Square Enix released ten new screenshots of Deus Ex: Human Revolution today. These are those very same images. I like this one in particular because I think the augmentations look really cool. Sure, the arms aren't exact... more
D3Publisher has sent out another batch of screenshots for Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon.
To the outside observer, they probably look fairly serious. The images do, after all, portray an insect- and robot-led armagedd... more
A new batch of content has been released for Inversion as part of Namco Bandai's flood of stuff out of Level Up. There's a mess of screenshots in here and almost all of them seem to have at least one guy who has lost con... more

It's going to take some serious convincing before I'm entirely sold on this game, but this is a solid debut. The last few shooters I've go... more
Nadeo and Ubisoft have pushed out some more details on TrackMania 2 Canyon. Namely, the closed beta for the sequel is going to start in July, with ManiaPlanet -- a connected system for PC which contains tools that allow for ... more
New screenshots for Serious Sam 3: BFE, everybody!
As far as I can tell, they still haven't told us what BFE stands for. "Beyond First Encounter" makes the most sense, since Serious Sam 3 is a prequel, but I'm hoping Croteam ... more
This week at GDC, I had the opportunity to put my grubby little hands on Shoot Many Robots. I'm not allowed to talk about what I've seen there until later this week. What I can tell you is that Demiurge Studios has anno... more
You could hardly be blamed for not looking at all of these screenshots for Time Crisis: Razing Storm, but you may want to browse through them anyway. In addition to a clump of character models, there are a considerable quanti... more
There are some videogames that people would rather talk about than play. For instance, folks have spent more than a year prattling on about how much they "appreciate the significance" of BioShock, and how Braid just... more
I’m a big fan of anything involving the sparking and utilization of fire. While Alone in the Dark was a huge disappointment considering its rampant usage of my weapon of choice, Far Cry 2 has revitalized me. The new bat... more
As a Silent Hill guy, it almost shames me to say that I’m excited for the next iteration of the Resident Evil franchise. Resident Evil 4 and its much-improved mechanics revitalized my hope that Capcom will eventually cr... more
While I'm inclined to argue that the last thing the Wii needs is a game that look like a pre-schooler's construction paper project gone awry, Blast Works: Build, Fuse & Destroy does sound like it's bringing so... more
Creepy. I once dated a girl that used to this all the time, but I'm a light sleeper and it would always result into accidental morning headbutts of shock and confusion. It just wasn't meant to be. What a pic for a Val... more
Bioshock may be utterly lacking multiplayer (because it is apparently going to be way too interesting) but is banking that they'll more than make up for it with gorgeous and disturbing substance. Three new Xbox 360 scree... more
InCrysis offered three morsels on the day after Christmas -- three high resolution jaw dropping screenshots Crysis, the game that will make you wish you had $5k to splurge on an Alienware clone. Unlike the various lush gree... more
As if the brand new Bioshock video wasn't reason enough to steal your grandmother's life savings for a new gaming rig, these five new screenies may push you over the edge. Massive detailed weapons, demented environm... more
