Is it about time to revive the WW2 shooter?

Years ago, World War II shooters were everywhere. Then the bubble burst. Activision, EA, and all the pretenders trained their sights on more contemporary settings, quickling transitioning series like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and Battle...

Happy Friday! Have a HAWP about Ecco the Dolphin

It's Friday afternoon, and you know what that means. Game news slows down. You're doing lots of sitting around idly, pretending to be busy, waiting to slip out of work and start up the weekend as soon as possible. Maybe you need something t...

Reminder: Enemy Front out next week, it's actually decent

Pretty sure I'm the only person in this industry that's talking up Enemy Front. Is it going to be a mindblowing revolutionary first-person shooter? No, not really. Is it going to be pretty fun? Yeah, I think so at least. But it's understan...

Get a taste of Enemy Front's stealth combat

Enemy Front is the upcoming World War II shooter that feels a whole lot like Far Cry 3. That's a good thing! For one, it's nice to go back to a World War II shooter. It's even nicer when it's just not a straight up mindless corridor shoote...

Enemy Front is a fresh approach to World War II shooters

Back in 2011 CI Games announced Enemy Front, a World War II shooter that was being worked on by Stuart Black who was the guy responsible for Black. It's funny how over-hyped that game was looking back. Anyway, Black left at some point in 20...

Company of Heroes 2 removed from sale in Russia

Whilst our own Joshua Derocher loved Company of Heroes 2, it has not gone down too well in Russia and Eastern Europe. Polgyon reports that the game's publisher in those regions, 1C-SoftClub, has removed the game from sale, bowing to online ...

Things go boom in the latest Company of Heroes 2 trailer

The latest look at Company of Heroes 2 shows off just how action packed this real time strategy game is. There's action, explosions, and death all around you in the battlefield. There's so much action here that the trailer even says you sh...

Here's your Company of Heroes 2 campaign trailer

I'm really grateful that Sega has picked up Company of Heroes 2 after THQ's collapse. The original was a great real-time strategy title, one that I had most of my fun with in multiplayer more than the single-player. This trailer for the ca...

Company of Heroes 2 teaser trailer is a little unsettling

If it isn't broke, don't fix it. That seems to be Relic Entertainment's philosophy with the follow up to the most highly regarded strategy game in all the land. As is natural for a sequel, the Company of Heroes 2 developer hopes to expand ...

Red Orchestra 2 cuts price in half and adds friend pass

Red Orchestra 2 recently had a free-to-play weekend, and it was wildly successful. The influx of new players was a good start, but Tripwire has decided to do even more to bring players into the game. Red Orchestra 2 is now permane...

A WWII shooter, you say? Ask and ye shall receive!

In what can only be described as truly serendipitous, City Interactive has just wrapped their first media tour for Enemy Front and it's shaping up to be not half bad. Stuart Black, the brains behind Black and last year's les...

World War II shooters, World War II SHOOTERS!

Is it just me, or does the idea of a first-person shooter set in World War II seem really fresh right about now? With the industry being so afraid to touch such a tired concept recently, it seems we've barely seen anybody touch the setting....

E3: Nazi killing fun in Brothers in Arms: Furious 4

Before diving into just how retarded awesome Furious 4 is, know that Gearbox isn't done with the main Brothers in Arms storyline. They'll be getting back to that series when the time is right, but in the mean time they're going to be telli...

Robots in WWI: Toy Soldier's 'Invasion' add-on

I'm of the opinion that you can improve just about anything by adding robots. That includes World War I, and taking it one step further, videogames about World War I in which army miniatures duke it out. Videogames like Signal Studios' Toy...

World at War: Zombies App gets a lite version

There's now a demo for Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies (quick, someone make this title stop!) up on the App Store. Excuse me, make that a "lite version" -- gotta abide by Apple's law. Essentially, this is a translation of World at War's...

EA: Saboteur sequel could happen if first one sells

With the death of Pandemic and Electronic Arts not exactly putting its marketing weight behind the thing, a sequel for The Saboteur seems unlikely. Nevertheless, EA has said that a sequel could come ... provided enough people buy the first ...
