Dead Rising 3 Receives Patch on PC, Crashing Issues Persist

Dead Rising 3 on PC has the potential to be a really great version of the game. Unfortunately it's been marred with numerous issues since the game launched a little over a week ago. I myself have been unable to play for more than 15 to 20 minutes at a time before the game crashes to the desktop. Capcom assures us a fix will be coming ASAP, but it looks like we're still going to have to wait a bit longer.

Guns, Gore & Cannoli Greenlit, Coming to Consoles in 2015

Crazy Monkey Studios isn't afraid to ask the tough questions, like "What if The Godfather was less like a book and movie series and more like Metal Slug?" Enter Guns, Gore & Cannoli, a sidescrolling arcade action game that shoves you back to the roarin' 20s with a truck load of guns and plenty of old fashioned Italian knowhow.

Stronghold Crusader 2 Introduces: the Wolf

Being a medieval Duke comes with a set of unique challenges. When you're not fighting off religious fanatics or the plague, you've got to make sure your peasants can strike a balance between being productive, and also too blindingly inebriated to rebel. Stronghold Crusader 2's newest AI opponent, the Wolf, cuts all that out by running his kingdom through brain-paralyzing terror.

Barely co-op...still fun.

Some Clarification on The Crew's Co-Op Gameplay

A few weeks ago we checked out the closed beta for Ubisoft's, The Crew. While we found the game to be gorgeous and a ton of fun, we pondered exactly how the co-op works within it. Sure we could race together (and against each other) - but none of the objectives themselves required input from both players. We reached out to Ubisoft for clarification and we've finally got it.

Heists in Unity Bring Stealth Back to Assassin's Creed

One of the selling points of Assassin's Creed Unity is the many ways to take out your targets with friends. In a new video from Ubisoft, we see something a little different; a Heist mission isn't about taking out a target, but instead about remaining undetected while stealing some treasure. Creative Director Alex Amancio takes us to the French Revolution where players are working together to acquire artifacts smuggled into a hospital by the Templars:
