[NSFW] Shake it, baby: New Onechanbara Z2: Chaos screens

Look, I'm not gonna mince words. The last Onechanbara title I played was absolutely horrible. For some reason I thought Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad for Xbox 360 was going to be this sexy amalgam of zombie-slaying goodne...

The years have not been kind to Resident Evil's visuals

Capcom has posted screenshots of its 2015 remaster of Resident Evil as well as equivalent shots from the so-called "REmake." There are even sliders on Capcom-Unity so you can quickly see how the new version stacks up to the W...

Escape Escape Dead Island's time loop on November 18

Do you like piña coladas and getting caught in zombie-infested time loops? Are you not into yoga, but into land masses that are surrounded by water on all sides? Deep Silver took out a personal ad. It wants ...

The Walking Dead Pinball is just as good as I had hoped

Zen Studios has been quite busy the past few years expanding its line of pinball tables; most of which have been in the form of licensed Marvel and Star Wars tables. There have been videogame-themed tables in the past --...

Ray's the Dead lives on with a new and improved Kickstarter

I liked Overlord, I loved Pikmin, and I'll probably dig Ray's the Dead. You might remember the game from its successful Steam Greenlight campaign, its showing at Sony's E3 2013 press conference, or that canceled Kickstarter....

H1Z1 is a lot more playable, still a ways out photo
H1Z1 is a lot more playable, still a ways out
by Steven Hansen

I stopped tallying at ten counts of the word "iteration" in the early goings of the SOE Live 2014 presentation for SOE's upcoming (PC, PS4) survival zombie sim H1Z1. Okay. I get it. That's why the game wasn't so hot when it was first shown off and why there's still work to do before it comes to Steam Early Access "soon."

"It kicked us in the butt," I was told of initial previews, which were not all that kind to the project (our own Wett Brett Makedonski called it "almost unplayable").

Explode zombie heads into raspberry jam with Dead Island 2

This game is a bloody messy. In a good way. I've never been too keen on Dead Island, but maybe with Spec Ops developer Yager on Dead Island 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), this will make for a good time. Maybe some white ph...

Twitch viewers can screw with you in #killallzombies

Dumb name aside, I quite like the premise of #killallzombies. It's a top-down shooter for PlayStation 4 in which zombie survival has become a televised sport, and there will be real, human spectators watching you play (if yo...

Dying Light's gamescom trailer is all about hunting and hiding

As I wrote about at E3, there's a lot that you can do in Techland's Dying Light. First and foremost, you can run, jump, and grapple your way across terrain at a breakneck speed. You can take a break from traversal and use yo...

So, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is happening

Based on the name alone, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies doesn't sound like a legitimate, officially-licensed game, but it is. Valve's okay with it! And, actually it's not too far-fetched when you recall that Nexon is responsib...

The Walking Dead Seasons 1 & 2 priced and dated for current-gen consoles

Amazon has updated the listings for next-gen versions of the first and second seasons of Telltale's The Walking Dead. Both will be sold separately for the whopping price of $30. Considering that both seasons could have been h...

Dead Island Epidemic is a 'ZOMBA,' not a MOBA, get it right

Dead Island Epidemic's four-minute gameplay video tries really hard to be hardcore, but I cringed at the way the announcer said the title. It wasn't good. With that said, it looks like it could be fun. Obviously this is a MO...

Stay far away from these Killing Floor 2 monsters

Slashers, and Crawlers, and Clots, oh my! Everything in this Killing Floor 2 trailer looks positively no bueno. Especially that Fleshpound character. His concrete pound looks aggressive enough, and I doubt that skin would hold up any better than that cement did.

Dying Light is less about zombies and more about movement photo
Dying Light is less about zombies and more about movement
by Brett Makedonski

What can be done freshen up the zombie genre at this point? Videogames, television shows, movies, comics -- virtually every pop culture medium's been infested by the craze, long ago hitting a saturation (and then oversaturation) point. So, how does a developer like Techland, who's most well-known recently for its zombie games, take the concept and still manage to make it its own?

Techland's creating a game about zombies, that isn't really about zombies. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, that's what it's doing with Dying Light. And who knows -- maybe that's the take on the undead genre that'll liven it up a bit.

Dead Island 2 wants to be cool and kickass

The debut of Dead Island led us to believe that it would tell a very dramatic and serious story about the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. That’s not quite the game we ended up with, so it’s refreshing to know th...
