Matador is the isometric mech game I didn't know I needed
by Steven Hansen

Ernest Hemingway was an aficionado of bull fighting, the "only place where you could see life and death, i. e., violent death now that the wars were over." He wrote of the matador as an artist in The Sun Also Rises, with as much reverence and even more mysticism than an American sportswriter might pen an article about Ichiro Suzuki, baseball's best and most transcendent player.

Then Gundam got to it. Matador Gundam.

Well, I'm sure we can have a better mecha'ppropriation than that. How about Matador, this isometric mech game? The synth laced trailer makes me want to watch Patlabor or Otomo's Short Peace segment. It's gritty in a good way. It feels scuffed, like 80's and 90's anime. 

Your goal, the website reads, is to clear the whole city in one night. Choose your armaments and you're on your own. "When you die, start over and try, try again." It sounds lovely. Look out for it on Greenlight one of these days, matadorks.

Murdered: Soul Suspect takes its dumb fedora to Xbox One

Fedora. Lame vest and tie combo. Watch -- or worse, wallet -- chain. Man, the protagonist of Murdered: Soul Suspect looks dumb. Certainly has nothing on the style of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective's lead, though I soul suspe...

Rock n' roll horror fighter Chainsaw Incident announced

I don't know about you, but when I think of a chainsaw incident, I think of Christian Bale dropping one down several flights and killing a woman in American Psycho. Or maybe that scene in Scarface. Chainsaws are pretty horri...

Tekken movie gets a prequel: Tekken - A Man Called X

There's another Tekken movie coming out, Cinema Today reports. Inexplicably, it's a prequel to the Tekken movie that came out in 2009 that no one cared about. Just start over. No one would care. I was going to mention fond me...

Alien: Isolation is the new game in the Alien franchise
by Brett Makedonski

After months of rampant Internet speculation, Sega has finally revealed that Alien: Isolation is the new title in the Alien(s) franchise, and that it's being developed by Creative Assembly, the studio behind the Total War series. True to its non-plural namesake, Isolation will be a survival horror game in the same vein as Ridley Scott's 1979 masterpiece.

Alien: Isolation tells the story of Amanda Ripley, the daughter of the movie series' protagonist, Ellen Ripley. Amanda has been plagued since childhood by the mysterious disappearance of her mother after the loss of the Nostromo. Amanda, now a Weyland-Yutani employee herself, is tipped off that a space station has recovered the audio log detailing the events of the Nostromo. She journeys with a team to the space station, only to find that a Xenomorph has gotten there first and is wreaking havoc.
