New game from developer of Spider-Man 2's swing mechanic is out tomorrow

Brigador review

Review: Brigador

  Watch Video Imagine, if you will, Syndicate as a shooter. No, not that one. A shooter from the older days, when console and consumer PC hardware lacked the power to render violence in the first-person. That's Brigador, and it's glorious that way.   read

The giant, hellish bosses of Death's Gambit

Inside review

Review: Inside

  Watch Video Normally, it'd feel disingenuous to directly compare games during a review; this is a unique case where I think it may be impossible not to. Inside is developer Playdead's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Limbo, and it's a better version of that in almost every conceivable way.   read

Local Ford dealer steals Firewatch art to sell freedom (and cars)
