Shogun 2 Receives Massive Update

Earlier this week an enormous patch was applied to the lately installment of the Total War series, Shogun 2. The bulk of the update seems to be fixes, but there's some unit tweaking, DirectX 11 support, and even four new multiplayer maps included as well. We found the game to be a great co-op strategy/RTS game, giving it an impressive 4.5 out of 5. For the full list of patch notes, read on:

Starhawk Officially Unveiled, Features a 4 Player Co-Op Mode

Lightbox Interactive to the wraps off the rumored Warhawk sequel today.  Starhawk though looks to change things up - instead of simply a "flying game in space" - Starwhawk mixes ground and vehicle combat with RTS elements while still maintaining the feel of the series.  For instance players can erect walls and defensive structures to alter battles as well as call in different vehicles through a Build and Battle menu.

Serious Steam Sale: Serious Sam Series

I have fond memories of playing the first Serious Sam game.  Humor elements like that of Duke Nukem, plus huge hordes of enemies in a gorgeously rendered setting made for a great time.  Recently, the Serious Sam games were given the HD makeover, and this weekend, each game is on sale for a whopping 75% off!  That's a really... er... serious savings!  Definitely worth picking up if you are a fan of fun.

Speculation on Nintendo's New Console "Project Cafe"

It's time once again for the E3 rumor mill to start churning up some great stuff before the show. This year the big buzz is around the new Nintendo console (code named "Project Cafe" for now, but also referred to as WiiHD and Wii2), as some preliminary specs (or rumors of specs) have begun to surface. The new system itself has been confirmed by Nintendo, shooting for a 2012 launch, but the rest is all bits and pieces found from various sources. Here's what we're hearing so far.

New Developer Diary Video for Operation Flashpoint: Red River

Operation Flashpoint: Red River is almost upon us.  Okay, if you're in Europe it's already here.  Nuts to you!  In this latest developer diary the good folks at Codemasters discuss the new command wheel used for giving orders, the graphical details of bombs and getting shot, and a host of other things.  They manage to do all this while sitting in some sort of dilapidated warehouse.  Man, I thought my work space was bad.  The game is supposed to be an incredibly realistic military shooter, which is just a fancy way to say that bullets killify everything real good.

It's Man Against Machine In Binary Domain

It always makes me proud to be a gamer when the "new game" scene gets its hands on a solid game. Not a puzzle game, not a score-based game, not a mindless shooter, but a game with story, machines, and flesh and blood. Binary Domain looks to encourage the use of flesh and blood on the Xbox 360 or PS3, as the machines have taken over - and their intentions aren't so pure after they're granted an ego and emotions. The machines in Binary Domain started off as simple workers, but became a formidable enemy as they take on more and more human traits.

Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury Co-Op Review

Treasure’s growing catalogue of XBLA games increased by one last week with the release of Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury. Fun levels, but nothing that ties them together; a leaderboard that doesn’t feel too competitive, Bangai-O is more bi-polar than the Ikaruga ship. Even the co-op feels a bit divided…

Brink Gets Update, More Fixes on the Way

Many of you probably noticed an update for Brink when you first began the game.  Splash Damage took care of a host of minor problems on all three versions. They also make it clear that they "have teams at Splash Damage and Bethesda dedicated full time to resolving any issues you discover."  You can leave your witty remarks about paying $60 to be a game tester, or the wisdom of launching an unfinished game, down in the comments section.  I will most likely agree with you, even though I really enjoy Brink.  I gave it a 4 out of 5 for our Co-Op Review, having a decidedly different experience than some other critics.

Magicka Will Get a Sequel, Publisher Talks Console Version

Magicka's sales have been strong enough to conjure up a sequel.  In a recent interview with Joystiq.com, publisher Paradox Interactive dished the dirt on the game's sales numbers.  Magicka "sold over 30,000 copies in the first 24 hours" of it's release.  The five dollar "Vietnam" expansion pack, which moved the game setting from a fantasy realm to the Vietnam war (Seriously!) has reportedly sold "well over 100,000" units.  This comes as no surprise to us.  We really liked the game, giving it a 4.5 out of 5 in our Co-Op Review.
