Gears of War head Cliff Bleszinski is at it again! Not content with just criticizing honest reviews and calling 8/10s "hateful", it seems as if Cliffy B has now set his sights on a new target: the Japanese game industry and t...

Review: Shadows of the Damned photo
Review: Shadows of the Damned
by Jim Sterling

A demon with a goat's head is riding a horse that defecates pure darkness. Then the demon eats the horse's heart, grows to the size of a ten-story building, eats the rest of the horse and proceeds to urinate more darkness into a gigantic fountain. 

That's just the first boss. 

Welcome to Shadows of the Damned.

Shadows of the Damned gets a launch trailer

Make no mistake, Shadows of the Damned is a silly game. One of weapons available to protagonist Garcia Hotspur is called, quite simply, "Boner." Yeah, they went there. The marketing for this game has taken a similar over-the...

A weird bird thing dies in Shadows of the Damned

Lots of things are going to die in Shadows of the Damned, mind you. This is just one of them. It's some freak who transforms into something like a giant bird with the mouth of a Tremor. You'll face this abomination as a boss fight in the game's third act and possibly every night as you lay helpless in your bed sleeping. June is a terribly painful month for my wallet, it seems.

Have some balls-mental Shadows of the Damned screens

Here's a bunch of new screens for Grasshopper's Shadows of the Damned. The game launches June 21 and I'm incredibly excited for it. So are you. Even if you think you're not, just trust me, you are.  The game features big guns, crazy monsters, and the typical eccentric premises that Suda 51 and his team are known for. I'm expecting some pretty awesome stuff here.
