Not all of Total War: Warhammer's DLC will cost money

Creative Assembly is no stranger to DLC for its Total War series and the upcoming Warhammer seems particularly suited for post-release content given how much stuff there is to the property. Thankfully, some of it will be free -- including n...   read

Total War: Warhammer's Vampire Counts overwhelmed me, but they seem damn cool

Last year, Jordan conjured up a post titled "Okay, Total War: Warhammer looks awesome," and that about sums up my knowledge of the game. I have no background with Total War aside from a vague awareness that it exists, and some folks are kee...   read

Total War: Warhammer pushed to May 24, 2016

Creative Assembly has delayed the launch of Total War: Warhammer from April 28, 2016 to May 24, 2016 in order to not "rush it," according to creative director Mike Simpson. Always a good thing. "This could be the best Total War game we've e...   read

You can rename your dudes in Total War: Warhammer

Creative Assembly is giving us another glimpse at the particulars of Total War: Warhammer. Just like the Greenskins walkthrough before it, this video drops us partway into a campaign, albeit with the Empire. It's seven minutes long, but tha...   read

A modder has taken the Alien out of Alien: Isolation

The first time I played Alien: Isolation, I was at developer Creative Assembly's studio in Horsham, England. The game hadn't been announced yet and we were the first non-Sega people to see it. There was the briefest of introductions before ...   read

Xenomorphs are resilient little buggers. One year removed from the release of Alien: Isolation, we thought we had done away with the titular alien. Nope. It comes back to haunt us today because a flamethrower isn't hint enough that we don't...   read

Total War: Warhammer looks appropriately ridiculous

I'm watching orcs and goblins and spiders march into battle and I'm losing my mind. After all of those trailers for Total War: Warhammer, this is exactly what I needed: in-game footage! It's a scripted demonstration, but damn if it isn't ex...   read

Okay, Total War: Warhammer looks awesome

Some folks were invited to see Total War: Warhammer. We were not. But thanks to the power of the Internet, we can all share in the absurd spectacle. I sincerely hope Creative Assembly works its magic here. The premise alone is the stuff of ...   read

Maybe Ripley's arms are made of fire?

In what was probably an alternate ending to Alien: Isolation, Amanda Ripley looked down and noticed that her arms were fire. How she went through decades of life without realizing that her limbs were constant chemical combustion wasn't imp...   read

Alien: Isolation's latest add-on serves up a gruff face to the Xenomorph

Just like Alien: Isolation's last piece of content, the newest add-on again asks you to decide what's more important: a shot at leaderboard fame or safety? The two are mutually exclusive, and there's a pissed off Xenomorph that's coming af...   read

Playing Alien: Isolation on a convention floor isn't the best idea

Demoing a game like Alien: Isolation at a convention such as EGX or PAX has always been problematic since horror works best when there's time for quieter moments between the scares. There has to be a period of tension building before you st...   read
