Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper

11-21-2012

Warriors Orochi 3 was one of the best entries in Koei's long-running Warriors series, perhaps since Dynasty Warriors 3. Not only was it packed with content, the inclusion of Ryu Hayabusa, Joan of Arc, and other characters fro...

Warriors Orochi 3

03-28-2012

Warriors Orochi 3 is Tecmo Koei's Super Smash Bros. Considering Nintendo's pedigree as compared to Tecmo Koei's, that statement can be seen as quite laughable, but nevertheless, Warriors Orochi 3 dabbles in the kind of crosso...

Warp

02-17-2012

If you've been holding out for Warp, but you don't happen to own an Xbox 360, you'll be relieved to know that it is finally out for PlayStation 3 and PC. On PC though, you won't find it on Steam. Instead, you'll have to head...

Warlords

11-14-2012

In the '80s, if you had three friends over who all wanted to play Atari with you, there was really only one game you would reach for. Warlords was the go-to game for multiplayer combat, and it was also the source for many fru...

Warlock - Master of the Arcane

05-18-2012

Back in May I reviewed Warlock: Master of the Arcane, a delightful magical 4X game which tasks mages with building empires and generally kicking the crap out of each other and the hordes of unfriendly NPC monsters that r...

On Tuesday of next week, Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team will become available to PlayStation Network users in North America. As was the case with the already out Xbox Live Arcade release, this twin-stick shooter will be $9.99. I...

Wargame: European Escalation

03-01-2012

Modern-day military simulation Wargame: European Escalation is now out for Linux users. If you own it on Mac or PC, you already own it on Linux thanks to Steam. Along with the strategy game being released on Linux, there is a...

Wargame: AirLand Battle

06-08-2013

I was thoroughly impressed with Eugen Systems' Wargame: AirLand Battle; an extremely complex, realistic take on modern warfare. It's one of the most impressive RTS titles to come out in the last couple of years, and one that ...

Warframe

09-04-2014

Warframe has just released on the Xbox One, and it's undergone some changes since it launched -- mostly good changes, meant to add more content to the game in the form of items and missions. It still fails in all of the same areas however, mostly its inability to craft an interesting world, and the free-to-play scheme that encourages far too much grinding.

War of the Roses

10-11-2012

War of the Roses newest map, Greenwood Forest, is now available as part of a free downloadable content pack called "Outside the Law." In this lush forest players will get to brutally kill each other with new weapons...

Waking Mars

03-01-2012

If you didn't see this coming, then you clearly don't pay enough attention to the Humble Bundle. The recently announced Humble Bundle with Android 6 is halfway through its two-week run, and that means a "surprise" addition of...

VVVVVV

12-29-2011

Terry Cavanagh's gravity-flipping platformer VVVVVV is beloved for many reasons, and for a lot of fans, one of those reasons is Magnus "Souleye" Pålsson's kicking electronic soundtrack, PPPPPP. I know I have spent after...

Voltron: Defender of the Universe

12-12-2011

Nostalgia is a funny thing. Sometimes, what we remember fondly from our youth turns out to not be as enjoyable as we get older. It can cloud our perceptions, and we hope that new things based on cherished memories will hold t...

Volgarr the Viking

09-23-2013

Volgarr the Viking is a pretty awesome success story. It stayed with its old school roots and gave us a punishing, yet fair retro 2D adventure, and it became a hit in many circles. Now, according to an ID@Xbox announcement at...

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown

06-25-2012

Before Street Fighter IV completely revamped excitement in the fighting game scene back in 2009, Virtua Fighter was still going strong with the fifth installment hitting a couple years earlier. Even though the arcade, PlaySta...

Virtua Fighter 5 Online

11-08-2007

When Virtua Fighter 5 hit the PlayStation 3 earlier this year, everyone loved it. On a system lacking in quality software, it was hailed as the second coming of Christ (albeit, Christ with a wicked left hook and lightning fas...

Viral Survival

08-11-2010

Viral Survival was released on WiiWare back in May. If you take a look at your wall calendar, you'll notice that it is currently the month of August. That is, of course, if you've remembered to keep track of the days. Otherwi...

VidRhythm

09-08-2011

VidRhythm is a silly little iOS thing that's a lot of fun to play with. I created the above corgi music video with it. I've already recommended it to you, but I'm giving you another push now as it's free today. Harmonix...

Victoria II: Heart of Darkness

05-10-2013

To call Victoria II dense would be a gross understatement. It's a pound cake, with each ingredient -- the tangled politics, vast wars, and simulated economies -- adding greater depth and increasingly complex, interweaving sys...

Victoria II: A House Divided

02-18-2012

Victoria II: A House Divided adds 1861 as a new starting point to Victoria II. This puts you right at the beginning of the American Civil War, meaning you can pick the Confederate States of America as your fact...

Vessel

03-14-2012

In a bit of sour news for fans of puzzle platformers, it appears that Namco Bandai, who was handling the Xbox Live Arcade release of 2012's PC title Vessel, has stopped working on the port. In an email with XBLA Fans, John Kr...

Venetica

Back when I wrote for one of those girl gamer sites (yes, even I have a dark past), I got a press release about a game the got me pretty excited. Small German development team, Deck 13 were to publish Venetica, a fantasy them...

Velocity

The choice was simple: Go indie or go big. However, over the past console generation, this changed. Now, some indies make more money than major studios, and “going indie” has become a fair bit more difficult th...

Vanquish

10-19-2010

In case Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance isn't enough action from Platinum Games for one week, PlayStation 3 owners can step up to the plate for a second helping in the form of Vanquish. The high-energy third-person shooter arr...
