The first developer diary is out for Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, the FPS/RPG from Fatshark. The game is shaping up to be a sleeper hit and something to fill the void left by the absence of Hellraid this year.
Owner, creator, and mad scientist of Co-Optimus, Nick spends every spare minute devoted to gaming.
Co-Op gaming has been in his blood since the days of Sega Genesis playing Streets of Rage and Golden Axe. Of course the fond memories of the boardwalk arcade and Raiden II, Aliens vs. Predator, and Ninja Turtles didn't hurt either.
Nick's resume includes over 6 years of gaming coverage experience, including leadership roles at many prominent gaming outlets. He has created numerous websites to feed his insatiable appetite for world domination, of which, is coming along nicely.
There’s something really interesting about Rocket League when you look at it from a gaming and sports culture perspective. While we’ve had sports games almost as long as we’ve had video games, there’s a distinct chunk of gamers who scoff at following and/or playing those types of games. It’s the jocks versus nerds arch...
Firefly Studios continues to pump out packs of content for Stronghold Crusader 2 on PC. Each one themed as a head to head match-up between characters. We last saw (and gave away) The Emperor and The Hermit, but this time around we're looking at The Templar and the Duke. We'd love to see a co-op themed one next!
Dead Island 2 was noticeably absent from E3 this year. We spotted the beginnings of the title last year and had high hopes for what the game would do in the hands of a brand new developer in Yager Interactive. But alas all was not well with the game's publisher Deep Silver not happy with the direction or progress of the title, sending along an official statement on the development status.
We just recently posted our written review of The Red Solstice, it's a game we've been playing for the past year thanks to Steam's Early Access. The top down action game puts eight space marines onto Mars fighting back a brutal alien menace. Together through various classes they'll need to complete random objectives and escape before they are overrun.
Satoru Iwata, the president of Nintendo, has passed away at the age 55. Nintendo confirmed his passing today in a brief statement posted on their site.
Every year now, with the release of a Call of Duty game, we get a brand new take on the zombies mode. Each one seems more elaborate than the last and each time I say to myself - why is this not sold as a stand alone game? This year's Call of Duty is no exception, with Black Ops 3 getting a full zombies mode set in the 1940s fim-noir era with characters voiced and likeness of Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, Ron Perlman and Robert Picardo.
Let's face it, the 500GB hard disk on the Xbox One was never enough space in the age of required installs and digital downloads. Even though Microsoft recently launched a 1TB edition of the console, many users will likely still be hitting the space wall in no time flat. Luckily Microsoft built in support for USB 3.0 external hard drives, allowing users to install games and have virtually "unlimited" storage.
Our normal Monday Night stream took a magical turn this week as the crew was finally reunited after what seemed like forever. With our wands held high we headed towards a game that would surely re-establish the bonds of brotherhood in Magicka 2. The sequel to the hit indie game that sold over 2 million copies on PC, Magicka 2 looks to make it a more approachable title than the first.

If you're looking to take a history lesson in SHMUPs, you probably won't want to pass on XIIZEAL, a recent re-release from developer Triangle Service on PC. The Steam version of the game is from the same studio founded by Toshiaki Fujino, a programmer from Konami and the now defunct Oriental Soft Japan Studio. The hook here is the arcade style gameplay with the ability to build combos by deflecting bullets and chaining kills.
