Destroy All Humans! wants to make genocide smoother than ever

When the original Destroy All Humans! released, it was met with a favorable (but not spectacular) reception. So it may seem like doing a quick, cheap remaster could be viable, but you have to remember: that game came out in 2005. What was f...

Doom Eternal doesn't let you stop to think and that's okay

I'll admit it: Doom Eternal is not the kind of game I typically play. Don't get me wrong; I play first-person shooters a ton. But I'm more used to the flavor of shooters that have you ducking behind cover to catch a breath and recover some ...

Gears Pop! popped a new trailer with a smidge of gameplay
