I've been pleasantly surprised by the way Electronic Arts and PopCap have handled Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. First, the game itself is loads of fun -- the foundation is solid. But more than that, they don't have paid... more
The next content batch for Grand Theft Auto Online is called The Business. New vehicles include the Albany Alpha, Dinka Jester, and Grotti Turismo R to fill out the sports car department, while the new Vestra private jet will... more
That's my hope, anyway. Cuphead is one of those games I feel bad for not noticing sooner. Sporting a remarkable sense of style and animation, this looks to represent the best of the run-and-gun genre, with developer Studio M... more
Let's unravel this polymer of nucleic acids and LinkedIn resumes. First, concept artist James Paick showed off some sci-fi art from "Unannounced IP" linked to Double Helix.

This new Grand Theft Auto V screenshot of Michael acting casual or whatever it is he's depicting doing here has some real potential to be used for Internet tomfoolery. I know you can't force these things into popularity ... more
There sure have been some stupid collector's editions, but this one takes the cake -- and I mean that as the sincerest of compliments. It's Saints Row, after all. You kind of just have to roll with it.

Remember Obscure? It was that fun looking four-player side-scrolling beat-em-up/shooter. Well it's undergone a name change, and you can now refer to it as Final Exam. The name was changed largely due to how fans kept thinking... more
Here's footage of tactical gameplay in The Bureau: XCOM Declassified to go along with the usual news that, yes, post-release DLC is happening. The August 20 launch on Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 isn't exactly right aroun... 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

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

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

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
