Early Access Review: Fortnite

Did you know that 2011 was six years ago? It was quite a year for gaming. Big games such as Skyrim and Portal 2 came out and made it onto many people’s game of the year lists. It's also when Duke Nukem Forever finally released af...

Square Enix and People Can Fly are doing a game together

People Can Fly is partnering with publisher Square Enix for a "new high-end original title for console and PC." There. Now you know as much as I do about it! "We're building a game we all want to play which will be the perfect addition to o...

Duke Nukem's Bulletstorm tour is a big failure

When it was announced back in 2010 that Gearbox would acquire and finish Duke Nukem Forever, people let out a sigh of relief. Gearbox had a great track record of excellent first-person shooter games and had recently released Borderlands to ...

Review: Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition

When we bought into the promise of next-generation gaming in 2013 with the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One, I doubt any of us thought we'd be playing remasters of last-generation games four years later. Here we are, though, with yet another ...

The new Bulletstorm trailer is incredibly not-Bulletstorm

Bulletstorm is a game that's drenched in ridiculousness. Its inane over-the-top combo-centric action is complemented by its equally juvenile dialogue. Here's a sampling of some choice quotes: "I will kill your dicks!"; "You still reek...

So...Bulletstorm 2?

Polish-developer People Can Fly had already earned some acclaim for itself with Painkiller, but I think the Epic-co-developed Bulletstorm is what really did it. It was ahead of the resurgence of wild, violent first-person shooters and short...

People Can Fly head talks about split with Epic, new game

People Can Fly, a Poland-based developer, announced a split from Epic Games this morning. While the studio gained notoriety for its Painkiller games, in 2007 the majority of the company was acquired by Epic, and since then it's largely...

Bulletstorm inexplicably yanked from Steam

In a somewhat baffling move, it appears the raucous Epic Games and People Can Fly first-person shooter Bulletstorm has been removed from the likes of Steam. It's a classic case of "here today and gone tomorrow" as the skillshot-laden advent...

People Can Fly is working on Fortnite

Epic Games' sandbox survival title Fortnite was announced nearly two years ago. I've been anticipating it ever since, though I'd be lying if I said my interest hasn't waned. The company says it doesn't want to rush the game which, yeah -- w...

Bulletstorm dev on sales: 'We did everything we could'

People Can Fly wanted to make a sequel to Bulletstorm, one of the most pleasantly surprising first-person shooters in years, but the prospect was deemed too risky. (I'm still not over this, if you couldn't tell.) Instead, the studio went on...

Gears of War: Judgment gets another free map next week

While it would have been nice for Gears of War: Judgment to come out of the gate with more content, the fact that some of the post-release DLC is free helps reduce the sting. Following the Haven map and Execution mode, another multiplayer m...

Review: Gears of War: Judgment: Call to Arms

Since Gears of War 3, Epic Games has not been afraid to squeeze every last cent out of its customer base through premium maps and skins for characters and weapons. Don't get me wrong, I still consider the All Fronts DLC pack for Gears of Wa...

More maps and another mode for Gears of War: Judgment

On Tuesday, owners of the VIP Season Pass for Gears of War: Judgment will get more mileage out of their purchase with the arrival of a second map pack named Call to Arms. Everyone else can get this multiplayer content on April 30, which jus...

Reviews Elsewhere: Gears of War: Judgment

The release of Gears of War: Judgment has taken a fair few folks by surprise. Even I had a minor jolt when the review copy arrived on my doorstep, the prequel having enjoyed a relatively unsung build, at least when compared to the usual Gea...

Review: Gears of War: Judgment

Gears of War 3 may have seen an effective end to the war between the COG and the Locust, but in the game industry, a story isn't over until games stop selling. While Epic Games works on an inevitable sequel, it's joined up with People Can F...

Gears of War: Judgment trailer introduces Kilo Squad

Gears of War: Judgment launch trailer emerges

"Heroes make it up as they go along," as this new Gears of War: Judgment trailer boldly suggests. Judging by the video, "make it up" is some sort of military code phrase for "kill everything." Featuring the song "Shooting the Moon" by...

Gears of War: Judgment features two different campaigns

I love Gears of War. Like many earlier adopters of the Xbox 360 (I have and love a PS3 too so don't hate), Gears of War was that first big game that made me very comfortable with my system choice. With roughly a year and half separating Gea...
