Dead Island 2 wants to be cool and kickass

The debut of Dead Island led us to believe that it would tell a very dramatic and serious story about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. That’s not quite the game we ended up with, so it’s refreshing to know th...

Huh. I missed that Spec Ops: The Line studio Yager is handling development on Dead Island 2. That knowledge combined with the excellent CG trailer has me mildly interested.

Here's Max sharing his thoughts after seeing an early demo at E3. He's feeling similarly guarded, but says the tone is improved and there's enhancements to weapon crafting -- you'll be able to build stuff like a motorized pitchfork, a weed-whacker with blades on it, and a fiery crossbow.

Dead Island 2 isn't due out until spring 2015 where it'll be available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, so we'll see how it progresses from here. Can't wait to see that motion-captured cat.

Use an open world to fight for freedom in Homefront: The Revolution photo
Use an open world to fight for freedom in Homefront: The Revolution
by Brett Makedonski

As a result of THQ's fire sale at the beginning of 2013, several IPs were ushered off to new homes, just waiting for someone to advance their stories while being published under a new banner. One such example is Homefront, which was met with a relatively poor reception upon release in 2011. Now, Crytek has scooped up the rights and plans to reinvent the property with a sequel.

Homefront: The Revolution sees a continuation of the world that Homefront introduced us to, but from a different angle. It's now four years after the initial invasion by North Korean forces, and the United States is completely occupied. The North Koreans have opted to establish their base in Philadelphia, which is the setting for the game.

Co-op hack 'n' slasher Sacred 3 coming August 5

Thanks for not calling it Sacr3d. This new Sacred game features online (four players) and offline (two players) co-op, which will probably be its main draw when it releases on August 5 for PS3, 360, PC. Plus, your homies' voices can drown out those badly acted, hokey combat barks from the trailer.

As you may have heard, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are coming together for a new remaster package for the new generation of consoles and PC in the newly announced Metro Redux. This is better than your standard tweak-and-ship remaster as it has seen a full year development cycle, with the original in-house team handling the work. They know their games inside and out so you can consider this a true director’s cut. 

Each game will be available separately as digital downloads, priced at $24.99 a piece, including all of the DLC released since each title’s original launch. A double pack including all will release for consoles, priced at $49.99

Yes, Risen 3: Titan Lords, I'll watch your CGI trailer

Here's the extended CGI trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords that was first teased last month. I still don't know how Brittany managed to write that many words covering it, but now I'm thinking about What Dreams May Come, again,...

Risen 3's teaser trailer looks vaguely like Dante's Inferno

The official teaser trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords is out now, and it involves a lot of pretty CG animation and generic combat. It's got all the hallmarks of a traditional Western RPG: darkness, big swords, and copiou...

Saints Row IV thinks highly of itself, releasing Game of the Century Edition

Ever since the third installment in the series, Saints Row has been a franchise that hasn't been afraid to toot its own horn. Not necessarily without cause, though -- after all, Saints Row IV was pretty darn good. B...

Goats make everything better

Goats, man. I've been all about them ever since I started playing Coffee Stain Studios' weird, wild, surprisingly secret-filled Goat Simulator. Fact: more games need goats. As uninterested as I am in Dead Island: Epidemic, a...
