It's now possible to reach Vlambeer's Nuclear Throne

After months of updates, the in-development Nuclear Throne now has an actual Nuclear Throne, though getting to it -- and surviving the ensuing battle -- won't be easy. "To us, reaching the Nuclear Throne is the most crucial m...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is getting another free DLC

I'm really glad that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is still chugging along with free DLC. It's a truly great shooter that was pretty risky for a developer like PopCap, but since EA keeps greenlighting new content i...

The Last of Us Remastered PS4 bundle spotted

No official announcement out of Sony, but it seems there's a PlayStation 4 bundle featuring The Last of Us Remastered on the way. Amazon France lists the package for release on July 30, 2014. This upgraded version of The Last of Us may not be an all-new game, but it's a meaningful exclusive for PlayStation. More than enough to warrant a bundle, in other words.

Get splattered with straight Splatoon gameplay

The first couple minutes are tutorial and a frustrating watch. I actually didn't have time to play Splatoon at E3 (Darren did), so it's nice to watch a whole match play out. And it's like playing Graffiti in Tony Hawk's...

PC players will get this new Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare map first

In a show of unity, Sunset Overdrive lets you be a female assassin

I enjoyed messing with Sunset Overdrive's multiplayer mode at E3, partly because you could play as a beefy Middle Eastern man in a skirt or a tiny woman with bunny ears. Anyone other than Sunset's 'in your face' punk protago...

Good news, everyone: Splatoon will have local multiplayer

One of my favorite showings at E3 was Splatoon. It looks so wonderfully simple, yet had a layer of tactical depth that I could really get on board with. But my big concern was that it would have online-only play, and if ...

You don't say: GTA Online heists are taking longer than expected

Rockstar has been putting out fairly regular updates for GTA Online but to some players, that content has been essentially irrelevant -- it's the heist update we want, not this other stuff. The company responded to player inq...

Dreadnought's huge spaceships are a fairly untapped idea, but still feel familiar photo
Dreadnought's huge spaceships are a fairly untapped idea, but still feel familiar
by Darren Nakamura

The reveal trailer for Dreadnought pushes a lot of the right buttons for science fiction fans. It puts potential players into the right frame of mind and really sets up the scale of the endeavor. Combatants will not be darting around in fighters, they will be commanding huge, lumbering vessels that scoff at smaller ships. "Probably just debris, sir."

Despite the inherent coolness of taking control of a ship on the scale of a Battlestar, it is not something that comes up too often in games. In practice, it makes sense: the speed and control afforded by a smaller vessel is exciting, and that alone does not translate to huge ships. However, with its focus on tactical combat, Dreadnought makes it work, and it does so while remaining accessible to new players. Even though it treads less traveled ground in its subject matter, it features classes and tactics that will feel familiar to most gamers.

Warframe heading to Xbox One this year

Digital Extremes' free-to-play shooter Warframe has done well for itself on PC and PlayStation 4. It'll probably do well on Xbox One too, which is where it's coming next, sometime this year. Although, fact of the matter is i...

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.

As much as I like Sunset Overdrive's mix of Jet Set and Ratchet and Clank, I'm less in love with the insufferable punk aesthetic its sleeveless jean jacket wearing lead puts forth. Just because you pin cloth to your jean jacket doesn't make you punk, punk.

Thankfully Sunset Overdrive has eight player co-op and character customization so you can play as a beefy middle eastern man with bunny ears or something. I tried out its Night Defense mode, which is a horde/tower defense sort of deal with you and your friends protecting vats of goop.

The Last of Us Remastered comes to PS4 on July 29
by Jordan Devore

Here's a proper trailer for The Last of Us Remastered, coming to PlayStation 4 on July 29, 2014. Looks fantastic, visually -- but is that enough for another playthrough?

The video assumes you have already gone through the PS3 version (or have a reckless disregard for spoilers). So don't watch it if that doesn't describe you.
