Arizona Sunshine: The (Steam) VR revolution will, unsurprisingly, have zombies


Virtual reality zombie shooter
May 21
I sometimes feel like I'm less on board with VR than most. It's a fun novelty to show a family member for 20 minutes, not something I'd like to be cocooned in for hours . Maybe that's why there's expectation of it doing gang... read

Dying Light dev cancels dark fantasy tale Hellraid


To make more Dying Light content
May 21
Hellraid was announced as a Dead Island follow up in 2013. We finally got a good look at it late last year following a delay for current gen and PC exclusivity. It was meant to come out this year, but that's not happening, H... read

Daybreak bans thousands of H1Z1 cheaters


Boo hoo, you're breaking my heart
May 19
Nearly 25000 cheaters just got the permanent boot from H1Z1. According to Daybreak president John Smedley's Twitter, the purge targeted cheaters using ESP hacks, a cheat designed to reveal other player's location and status a... read

Dying Light's new DLC is called The Bozak Horde


Gee, I really wonder what it could be
May 15
I’m going to play a little game with you called "guess the DLC". Dying Light is an open-world, cooperative zombie game with a heavy emphasis on parkour and violently slaughtering zombies in as many different ways as yo... read

Slice Zombies

It's just like Fruit Ninja, but with zombies


Sold on it? No? Didn't think so
May 08
This all rather smacks of ingenuity. A new game just released on Xbox One, and it looks an awful lot like another popular title. Trade some produce for the undead and throw in some coins, and it seems as if you have a border... read

GoatZ DLC brings fire-breathing zombie elephants to Goat Simulator


Also includes boring human zombies
May 05
Zombies are coming to Goat Simulator and absolutely no one is surprised. The zombie-filled GoatZ expansion calls itself "the only survival game on Steam that isn’t in Early Access," which is only a little untrue. ... read

Deep Silver delays Dead Island 2


Pushed back until 2016 over quality concerns
Apr 30
Dead Island 2 was supposed to release this spring, but that's no longer in the cards, as Deep Silver has announced the open-world zombie game has been delayed until 2016. The publisher and development team at Spec Ops: T... read

Dying Light shambles toward top of Japanese sales charts


Only one game could fight off the zombies
Apr 22
Dying Light doesn't seem to have any intention of dying anytime soon. Three months after its initial release, it's maintained popularity through support of modders, new game modes, and wacky gags. Despite being widely av... read

The new DayZ update seems to be breaking legs left and right


Left and right, get it?
Apr 09
This rather boring GIF represents the agony that some DayZ players are going through. Version .55 just launched, and it looks like randomly broken legs are one of the features that rolled out. Just when you thought the ... read

Dosh! Grab it while it's hot!
It's been a good while since the release of the original Killing Floor back in 2008. Over the years, its been sitting on the Steam best-sellers list for quite some time, and built a loyal and dedicated following. While hoard-... read feature

Forget zombies, bears are the best part of H1Z1


And the deadliest
Mar 26
H1Z1 is a game about surviving the zombie apocalypse. It should be a game about surviving the bear apocalypse, because they are way fucking scarier than any zombie. But, maybe that hits too close to home since bears migh... read

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition debut trailer, releases April 28


GOTY 2013, if you don't mention The Last of Us to me
Mar 19
State of Decay was one of those pleasant surprises back in 2013. Sure, the sandbox/RPG-lite horror game was a little rough, but it was an intense experience full of free flow situations, base building, and likable survivors.... read

Dying Light just made surviving the zombie apocalypse a whole lot tougher


Oh, great
Mar 11
When it comes to zombie outbreaks, it'd be foolish to go looking for a challenge. The easier you have it, the better. Why make a mockery of fate and scream "Come at me, bro?" It may be ill-advised, but Techland's giving thos... read

One giant horde mode
The Sniper Elite series has been around for quite some time, entertaining fans since 2005 on pretty much every platform known to man. But alongside of the core historical-centric games there has been a lesser known sub-franch... read feature

This 2015 D.I.C.E. Summit talk explains the entire history of Call of Duty's zombie mode


Worth the 25-minute watch
Feb 12
Call of Duty: World at War's zombie mode was an incredible addition to the industry. It was a fully featured mode that was actually included in the base package, and I played the first map for 100 hours, easy. I still play z... read

Dying Light to add hard mode

If you're finding Dying Light to be a bit too much on the easy side, then Techland has heard your zombie screams and announced that they plan on releasing a free content update that will add Hard Mode. We weren't given an exa... read

In a complete 180° from the events of last week, Techland has announced it will support mods for Dying Light. In an attempt to stop hacks for the "Be the Zombie" mode, Techland accidentally blocked modders from being able... read

You can beat Dying Light with no weapons, just punches and dropkicks


And with some patience
Feb 04
Not long removed from Dying Light's recent release, one boy decided to play through the entire game engaging only its best elements. That is, running around and drop kicking fools. It's dubbed the Jean Claude Van Damme run and its the only correct way to play a game that has drop kicks.  More games need drop kicks. read

Dying Light review photo
Dead Island with fewer rappers and more polish
As you may have heard, we got our Dying Light review code pretty late. As in, the day before launch. A late show doesn't necessarily instill confidence in a project, especially since a lot of fans had no idea what to expect from Techland's latest. It's strange that this situation even happened considering Dying Light is one of Techland's best games outside of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. read feature

'I love this game. It's sooo awesome!'

Jan 27
Techland did its best to hold off on handing out Dying Light review codes until the day before release. That's never good. But Techland doesn't need to cherry pick reviews for box quotes when it can pay for them. No, this is the future. And the future is sooo awesome! read
