Could Gearbox's RPG/FPS be getting a complete edition including all of its DLC?
Rockstar offers you the opportunity to be the future of emotionally-damaged antiheroes in "GTA V" for the low, low price of $150.
"Metro: Last Light" is a delightfully tense slice of post-apocalyptic Moscow. Normally, I'd call it a first-person shooter, but I spent most of my time non-lethally neck-punching guards until they pass out. I can't be the only one that enjoyed time spent first-person punching his way through "Metro"'s subterranean dystopia: after strong sales, publisher Deep Silver promises that the franchise will "absolutely continue."
When the Xbox 360 arrived, Rare brought a HD revival of their N64 classic, Perfect Dark, to the party. And for the Xbox One, their cult favorite arcade (and SNES) brawler Killer Instinct is getting a similar treatment.
Though Rare is not involved here; Double Helix are the ones behind that particular game. The creators, on the other hand, are busy prepping Kinect Sports Revival, much to the chagrin of their longtime fans.
But there's good news; Rare is interested in reviving other classic franchises of theirs for the One. Though what they have in mind may still turn off certain fans.
A few days ago, those who pre-ordered the digital version of GTA V for the PS3 in Europe received a pleasant surprise: a large chunk of data was downloaded onto their consoles, well in advance of its release date next month.
Actually, it's somewhat common practice for a certain portion of a game that's digitally pre-ordered to arrive beforehand, to save time on downloading when the day of release finally arrives.
But the difference is how, unlike most other examples, in which the data is unusable, this particular chunk contained info that could be extracted, to spoil certain surprises.
In an interview with Polygon over the weekend, "Diablo III" director Josh Mosqueira intimated that the recently announced "Reaper of Souls" expansions could eventually come to consoles.
Electric zombies! Flaming zombies! Next year's "Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z" apparently has all kinds of zombies for you to hack away at.
I kind of have to wonder if Airtight Games, the Seattle-based devs behind "Murdered: Soul Suspect," are feeling a bit cranky that R.I.P.D. -- the Robert Schwentke flop about Ryan Reynolds and the Dude being ghost cops -- not only beat them the premise, but also spawned a videogame of the same name.
Taking solace in the fact that neither versions of R.I.P.D. well particularly well-received, Airtight has released a new Gamescom trailer for "Murdered," which, gosh, is a title that gets right to the point.
