Review: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris photo
Review: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
by Darren Nakamura

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was a surprise hit for me. I had never been a huge Tomb Raider fan, but its focus on puzzles, asymmetric cooperative multiplayer, and replayability drew me in. It's hard to believe that was already four years ago.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris (abbreviated as Lara Croft: TOO, which any word nerd will appreciate) picks up the torch from Guardian of Light, adding four-person multiplayer, new puzzle mechanics, and updated visuals. It has a great formula for success, but it slips a little in execution.

Our own Jonathan Holmes was on the Russian news to talk about Australia's GTA V

Just last week, Target of Australia announced that it would no longer carry copies of Grand Theft Auto V due to the game's violent content. No big surprise there; Australia, after all. But, some don't think that the mov...

Drawn to Death: A PS4 arena shooter from David Jaffe photo
Drawn to Death: A PS4 arena shooter from David Jaffe
by Steven Hansen

"They said I could cuss." Oh, Jaffe.

Jaffe's (Twisted Metal, God of War) new studio's PS4 exclusive (in conjunction with Sony San Diego) is Drawn to Death, a third-person arena shooter set in a high school kid's violent notebook. That should get someone sent to a principal's office.

There are a number of different characters and some oddball weapons, like a dragon stuffed with gasoline breathing fire. Oh, teens. That everything--levels, guns, characters--comes from some teen's messed up imagination could make for a lot of wild, interesting stuff.

Drawn to Death is playable at PlayStation Experience, but in pre-alpha, so the team will be impromptu focus-testing at the show.

Killing Floor 2 is coming to the PlayStation 4

Killing Floor has done amazingly well on the PC, and the sequel is now coming to the PlayStation 4. This will be the console debut for the series. There's no date announced so far, but you can get plenty of gameplay footage in the video above. I'm actually pretty excited for this, and I'll probably play around with it a bit more on a console with friends.

Enter the Gungeon: Go get a big gun and kill the past

Devolver Digital has announced it is publishing Enter the Gungeon next year. Something about, "A gun...THAT CAN KILL THE PAST" just won me over. I don't even have to understand what it means. Plus there's table fli...

Review: Secret Ponchos photo
Review: Secret Ponchos
by Chris Carter

I'm loving how much easier it is to bring indie games to consoles this generation. With tons of nasty hold-ups like WiiWare sales thresholds, lengthy and expensive certification and patching processes, and a general negative attitude towards indies by big publishers, every console manufacturer has made strides in that department.

In the case of Secret Ponchos, Sony actively helped developer Switchblade Monkeys bring their game to the PS4, by offering up development kits and additional assistance. That partnership paid off as Ponchos has just launched by way of the PlayStation Plus program.

It turns out that it was an endeavor worth pursuing, but I'm hoping there's more meat on its bones down the line.

This is Saints Row: Gat out of Hell's musical number

Payday doesn't have much to be thankful for in its Christmas carol

Crime doesn't have a slow season. You strike when opportunity presents itself. If that means getting your ass out of bed on Christmas morning and proverbially crossing the Delaware River, you do it. But, all that doesn't mea...

Evolve's story trailer makes its monsters look more badass than ever

Everything we've seen of Turtle Rock's Evolve thus far has largely been without context -- two points of view ranging from "go kill that giant thing" to "go kill those four little people." This trailer isn't exactly wil...

Epic is sending out Fortnite alpha invites now

What I played of Fortnite in September, a good two hours, was super fun. I didn't want to stop. Epic Games has offered sign-ups for an alpha build for quite some time and here we are, at last: the first wave of invites went o...

Review: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions
by Brett Makedonski

Geometry Wars games have always been, in a sense, one-dimensional. They present the player with the seemingly simple task of "shoot everything in sight," and that's the sole objective apart from staying alive. The onslaught of flying colors and booming music molds the experience, but the core remains uncomplicated. For many, that's enough to be held in the highest regard when discussing twin-stick shooters.

In 2008, the heralded Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 vastly and competently iterated upon its predecessor. It added a handful of new modes, each one legitimately fun and addictive in its own right. But more importantly, it fueled sincere and passionate competition across online leaderboards -- a social dynamic that few games since have been able to recapture. In many ways, it was the perfect game.

All hyperbole aside, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions makes Retro Evolved 2's efforts look puny by comparison. It adds depth in so many more ways than just literally, but never strays from the formula that makes Geometry Wars incredibly lovable. It's certainly the most ambitious and fully realized title in the series to date, and it's difficult to imagine a different take that would improve it. In many ways, it is the perfect game.

Great offer and I hope there are more to come.

This Splatoon 60fps trailer is just hnnngh

Splatoon came out of nowhere, and it shot into my most anticipated list of 2015. As an unconventional shooter it looks pretty great, and the constant morphing from human to squid looks like it has a lot of value on a tactical level. Although this trailer isn't new, Nintendo has uploaded another version of it that runs at 60fps, so give it a go!
