At some point during the escape, the gang finds their old pal, John Malkovich, except this time he's all "What's up, idiots, I'm a zombie now."  And Bill and friends are like "Woah", and the player is all like "Woah", and somewhere off the coast of Mali, Eric Hirshberg is slapping a cocktail waiter with the frozen hundred dollar bill that was garnishing his drink.

Upcoming Platformer Mekazoo to Feature Local Co-OpJohn Bardinelli

The Good Mood Creators studio was founded a few years ago by several Digipen students looking to make their mark in the gaming world. Mekazoo is their first big project. The game is a throwback to platformers of old, putting players in a 3D world that shifts and rotates but confining the action to a flat plane. There are giant bosses to murderize, plenty of environments to explore, and little shiny things to collect, like we all love to do.

The basic idea behind Nom Nom Galaxy is this: you need to make soup. Good soup, too, not that canned flavorless garbage you have to dump a handful of salt into just so it doesn't taste like the inside of an tin can. Making said soup requires you to establish a workflow from crop to nom, dealing with logistics ranging from soup storage to ingredient mixing. Oh, and you have to defend your soup factory from invaders. It's just that good.

Developer Edmund McMillen stated on his blog that he wishes to bring the game to all systems possible, but we will need to be a bit more patient while development is still underway. Also, there is no set release date for when the game opens up to those outside of the US (sorry!).

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...

From now through July 20th, Xbox Live Gold members with their Xbox 360 systems can pick up Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light for 75% off. It may not have four player co-op like its surprise sequel, but the puzzles are arguably better and the gameplay a bit more focused since it's only Lara and her spear-chucking friend. Xbox One owners will have to settle for some Battlefield 4 add-ons and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. No spears for you, sorry.

While players on PS4 and Xbox One can grab a friend and hop into the terrified boots of a Rebel agent facing off against endless waves of Imperials on a single console, PC players cannot. That's right, split-screen play is reserved for the console kids, while fans of the PC need multiple computers to get stuff done. No rationale was given for this decision, though if you and your couch co-op buddy jam primarily on the PC, I can see why you'd be pretty miffed.

What is N ? Being an upgraded version from the original N , players control a nimble and ninja who platforms his way around dozens of obstacles and robot enemies to collect gold. The graphics might seem primitive or retro to some, but the gameplay more than makes up for it. Up to 2-players either locally or online can team up in one of the modes being offered in the game. Working together as a team, the two ninja's must use their parkour abilities to navigate each level in different ways.

What we now know as the “Western” genre has grown exponentially over the years in both followers and pervasiveness, but what exactly is it that makes the Western so attractive?  Older generations seem to come to it for the sense of freedom it bestows, the dark storylines, the chance to see rad dudes do rad things.  For a few r...

The Cult of the Undead is at it again, doing their best to keep you from fulfilling what you think is your destiny. They're protecting a treasure you need to get your hands on, you see: a gun that can kill the past. (Time traveling bullets?) It's the only way you can be at peace with your past wrongdoings, so those shockingly bullet-like cultists will just have to mosey on out of your way. Or get shot, like, all the times.
