Review: Sniper Elite 4

I love sniping in games, but I never do it. That’s because I’m terrible at sniping in video games. Give me a sniper rifle during a multiplayer match and you may as well have pulled the plug on my session, for that&rsqu...   read

Earth Defense Force 5 looks like another silly good time

I can only imagine what it's like to watch a trailer for Earth Defense Force 5 without knowing what the series is about and why, for the right type of person, it's a damn good time despite looking like an outdated mess. "Why do they chant ...   read

Roadhog and Winston just got tweaks in Overwatch along with Bastion

Review: Bleed 2

When Bleed came out in 2012, it was a great throwback to run-and-gun platformers of the late '80s and early '90s like Contra and Metal Slug. The sequel looks a lot better, builds on the foundation established in the first game beautifu...   read

Square Enix's robot shooter Figureheads is coming to PS4 with Xenogears costumes

Japan gets all the cool mech stuff. Over in the east, Square Enix has yet another franchise in Figureheads, a free-to-play tactical shooter for PC. I hear it's actually good, so it's great that we may see a better chance of a localization n...   read

Fallout 4's 58GB high-res texture pack is out

That promised high-resolution texture pack for Fallout 4 is here, and even though it's been a week since we learned this was on the way, I'm still reeling over Bethesda's beefy storage requirement (58GB!). Doable? Sure. Wild? I'd say so. Th...   read

Drawn to Death launching on PlayStation Network this April

Honestly, I had completely forgotten about Drawn to Death until today. The last we heard of David Jaffe's (Twisted Metal, God of War) kooky arena shooter was in 2014, but I'm glad to see it alive and kicking.  Drawn to Death is an aren...   read

Season passes and pre-orders are two of the more objectionable trends in the current video game landscape. But, Polish developer CI Games has a marketing strategy that implements both while sort of also mitigating the effects of both. Savvy...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: Sabotage

The buffs for Overwatch's Bastion sound exciting

As I was just saying the other day, Overwatch's Bastion is woefully underrepresented at the pro level. The robot just isn't up to snuff given how easy it is to counter, and only really sees play on Watchpoint: Gibraltar. Blizzard is seeking...   read
