And it's coming next year from Swedish developer MachineGames, home to a bunch of former Starbreeze devs (the folks behind "The Chronicles of Riddick" and the first "Darkness" game). In the short and sweet press release (no story details, nada), Bethesda described the shooter as "a eimagining of this franchise – offering players a gripping and dramatic experience," and it's being developed using id Tech 5.
The Plasma Cutter featured in EA's "Dead Space" franchise is an undeniably powerful tool-turned-weapon, and YouTube hobbyist AnselmoFanZero has brought it to life, creating a functional replica. Though it may not be an actual "plasma" cutter, it does emit five laser beams capable of burning whatever they touch.
For a free promotional game, I found "Doritos Crash Course" to be surprisingly entertaining, and it looks like Xbox Live is getting sequel. According to a recent tweet via Xbox's Major Nelson, "Doritos Crash Course 2" will be available for free this week.
With the recent announcement of intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo coming to "Injustice" as the first DLC character, we got to thinking about others who would be a great fit for developer Netherrealm Studios' DC Universe fighting game.
After the jump, we've got a list of ten characters who would be essential picks (and maybe should have been in the game at release), offering Batman, Lex Luthor, and the rest of the "Injustice" heroes and villains some formidable challenges while mining the legacy of the DC Universe.
A summer blockbuster based around giant robots beating the crap out of unearthly kaiju would be a natural fit for a big budget video game tie-in, right? If the Australian rating submission for the XBLA/PSN "Pacific Rim: The Video Game" that VG247 came across is to be believed, then we just might be getting a more modest take on Guillermo del Toro's next big feature.
Want a chance to visit Bethesda's studios and try out some new and upcoming games? Folks in the Dallas/Fort Worth area will be able to do just that as Bethesda has just opened a Play Test Lab at id Software's studios, and volunteers are needed.
"Blood Dragon" in a lot of ways is a perfect way to experience vanilla "Far Cry 3" without getting too invested. For 15 bucks (1200 MS Points), Ubisoft smartly detatches the main game and narrative threads of an island hopping, male power fantasy featuring a douchey 20 something for... a male power fantasy featuring a retro throwback of douchey action star. A mouthy look at some of the best (and worst) of what 80's and 90's action movies had to offer -- it's that mid-afternoon cable movie that you've just woken up to after passing out drunk on the couch, bathed in the dim glow of your TV set. Shirtless and confused, you stumble for the remote to turn it off but something compels you to perervere through your stupor because you just saw the most kickass and ridiculous action sequence of any action movie worth its salt.
"It's so bad it's good" seems to be Ubisoft's MO for "Blood Dragon" and it mostly works -- mostly. Read More...
In 2010 Telltale Games did the unthinkable, bringing a handful of random characters together to sit down at the same table, and play some poker. "Poker Night at the Inventory" had players face off against Tycho from Penny Arcade, Max from "Sam & Max," the Heavy Weapons Guy from "Team Fortress 2," and Strong Bad from Homestar Runner, in a PC only, Texas Hold 'Em tournament where poker was only half as interesting as the characters. "Poker Night 2" sends players back to The Inventory, and deals them in for another hand against some huge names from the worlds of video games, cartoons, and movies. Read More...
Whelp I guess the Skag's outta tha bag. An early tweet from "Borderlands 2" lead writer, Anthony Burch, has forced Gearbox to prematurely debut the 4th DLC for the boisterous loot 'n' shooter! Read More...
