PAX: Daylight takes horror into the YouTube age

When gamers argue about whether or not a game is survival horror, they tend to focus on the scares. Jump scares are a particular bone of contention because they can be effective only a few times before they get predictable. T...

Review: Special Forces: Team X photo
Review: Special Forces: Team X
by Patrick Hancock

Special Forces: Team X looked to fill a certain void in the PC market. One without the joint effects of chest-high walls, competitive multiplayer, and a cover system. Mass Effect 3's multiplayer helped bring third-person cover-based shooting to the PC, and it was good at best. I remember feeling as if it was pretty standard at the time. But then, oh how does the saying go? You don't know what you got ‘til…you play an absolutely terrible game that tries for the same thing.

Yeah, that's how the saying goes.

The maps are never the same in Special Forces: Team X photo
The maps are never the same in Special Forces: Team X
by Abel Girmay

At first glance, you may find Special Forces: Team X to be just another in today's long line of military shooters. I mean, for God's sake, it's actually called Special Forces: Team X. I don't think titles get more generic than that.

In some ways, you'd be right. It is, after all, a third-person cover-based shooter, complete with a progressive leveling system. A bit tame for Zombie Studios, coming off of Blacklight: Retribution. While there isn't much to be excited about at a quick gander, Team X rocks its own little oddities to good effect, possibly good enough to warrant your added attention.

Review: Blacklight: Retribution
by Jim Sterling

When I first heard that Blacklight: Tango Down was getting a sequel, I was stunned. While the original game looked pretty, this particular reviewer found it incredibly tiresome and miserable to play. I was reluctant to tackle its free-to-play successor, but decided to give it a try anyway. 

Some things deserve a second chance, and it seems Blacklight: Retribution definitely earned one of its own.
