Adult Swim is helping bring back ToeJam & Earl

You were aware that a new ToeJam & Earl game is currently in production, right? If not, I'm happy to be the bearer of good news. Series co-creator Greg Johnson took to Kickstarter last year to crowdfund ToeJam & Earl: Back in the G...   read

Alienation now has weekly challenges and new loot

Local co-op support was the big post-release addition for Alienation, but Housemarque is back with another free update for its twin-stick shooter, as well as some DLC. As of today, you'll now have Weekly Missions with "unusual rules" to tac...   read

Killing Floor 2 officially releases on PC and PS4 November 18

I've been playing a ton of Killing Floor 2 since it came to Steam Early Access April 2015, and it's been great, bloody fun. For those of you who tend to skip Early Access or prefer playing on PlayStation 4, your wait is almost over. On...   read

Earth Defense Force 4.1 has some tough new DLC levels on PC

I'm perfectly fine with my console copy of Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, but knowing that more of you are able to get into the bug-blasting shooter now that it's on PC makes me happy. And heck, I may double dip with th...   read

Review: Death Road to Canada

Execution is everything. We've seen lots of zombie survival games, and plenty of experiences that build on the classic Oregon Trail formula with one gimmick or another. Heck, there have even been titles that combine the two. But there is on...   read

Marvel creative director says the Ultimate Alliance mess is getting cleaned up

With almost superhero-like speed -- almost -- Marvel has rushed in to rectify the Ultimate Alliance fiasco. Earlier this week, the last-gen action games were re-released on current platforms. It didn't go swimmingly. There are ple...   read

Review: Ghostbusters

For the past week, I've been playing Ghostbusters for one hour each day. I'm technically capable of spending more time with it, but I'm not that strong-willed. After my one hour, I treat myself for my commitment to this job. One day I ...   read

Let's remember Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

It may seem impossible now, but in the mid-2000s (double-ohs? aughts?) superheroes weren't everywhere. They were on their way, though. X-Men (2000) and Spider-Man (2002) were box office hits as the world collectively thought "Hey,...   read

Star Wars Battlefront's much-needed offline multiplayer looks fab

Weird sports game Push Me Pull You now on PC

Review: 7 Days to Die

For better or worse, I didn't know what I was getting into with 7 Days to Die. I had heard that name before, and I was aware that it was a popular sandbox zombie survival game on Steam Early Access, but that's it. Prior to news that Telltal...   read

Alienation adds four-player local co-op next week

I am so down with Housemarque's twin-stick shooter Alienation, and I bet if you played it, you would be too. The game's lack of local co-op has understandably kept some folks away, but the studio is addressing that omission with an update n...   read

Watch Dogs 2 is on the right track

In my mind, Watch Dogs 2 has two things going for it over its predecessor: a not-dreadful protagonist (Marcus Holloway) and a sunnier, more dog-filled real-world setting (San Francisco). The rest of the changes are the sort of safe but stil...   read

Even at its most basic, Sea of Thieves is a total blast

Rare brought only a basic slice of its Xbox One and Windows 10 shared-world pirate adventure game Sea of Thieves for attendees to play together at E3 2016, and yet it still ended up becoming one of the more talked-about demos of the show. I...   read
