Here's a quick history lesson for you, our valued readers: Every Call of Duty game since 2012's Black Ops II has had a season pass. Technically, 2011's Modern Warfare 3 also had one, but it was confusingly included with the c...

Sniper Elite 4 is 'built from the ground up' for current-gen

I never would've guessed Rebellion had so many Sniper Elite titles in it, but people keep buying them, so the studio's output has been that series and not much else these past several years (aside from a reportedly badass Battlezone reboot ...

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...

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 ...
