PlayStation gamers can finally play Shadow Complex next month

Shadow Complex? Still great! It's a thrill to start out with little more than a flashlight only to eventually become this supersuit-wearing force of nature that can walk off missile strikes and stare down mechs. Chair Entertainment brought...

 
Shadow Complex Remastered
Fans of Shadow Complex have desperately wanted a follow-up for years. I know, because I was (and still am!) among them. The 2009 side-scrolling adventure was a genuine hit on Xbox 360, deservedly so, and ended up becoming one...   read

Nice 'Big Head' mode you got there, Unreal Tournament

There's a newly-updated version of the Unreal Tournament pre-alpha with a Big Head mutator and, jeez, how the heck do I keep forgetting this is in production and also freely playable? Lookin' good. Epic Games and community creators have bee...

Paragon, Epic's MOBA, enters Early Access on March 18

As someone who has played MOBAs since the dawn of the original DOTA mod, I'm all about trying new things that stray from the typical formula. Heroes of the Storm does that wonderfully, and Paragon for PC and PS4, based on ear...

Epic's Paragon introduces a pipe-smoking Ivan Ooze

Grux is the last of Epic's Paragon character reveals

I've mostly stayed away from the Paragon marketing, as I'd prefer to just jump into the beta when there's something actually substantial to see. Then again, this is the last of the character reveal trailers, so it allows me to rant a ...

Epic reveals another character for Paragon, still won't tell us what the game is

We're getting a firm grasp on Paragon's who, but we're still left in the dark as to its what. Epic has had no problem rolling out teaser trailers for the game's roster, but has neglected to tell us anything of substance about it. All in du...

Peek at Gears of War: Ultimate Edition's touched-up cinematics
