Overkill's shooter sequel to PAYDAY: The Heist has officially broken its cover to the pubic! We have a little video preview describing PAYDAY 2 details since the developer’s move from Sony to 505/Starbreeze Studios.
Last Friday I had the pleasure of attending the Aliens: Colonial Marines New York Comic Con Event. I'll just get it out of the way right now and admit that I know very little about the Aliens universe and lore. I have absolutely nothing against it, I just haven't gotten around to watching any of the movies. That being said, however, I have some friends who are huge fans and they've gotten me curious about the upcoming game.
This past week tower defense/FPS hybrid Sanctum received both a free update as well as a DLC map pack. The patch, entitled Still Alive, adds a new weapon (the Tesla Gun) as well as two new towers (the Drone and the Accelerator) to the base game. The map pack (entitled Map Pack 2, who would have thought?) gives purchasers access to three new levels (Industry, Chasm, and Invasion) for the price of $4.99.
More video footage of the alpha phase of upcoming MMO/FPS zombie-thriller, War Z, has surfaced, showcasing some good use of defensive tactics to survive in an apocalyptic world. War Z is the first MMO, sandbox style zombie game to feature an open world, with no emphasis on a set storyline or even character classes.
People must really love Dead Island, because they’ve already been playing it for over 6,500 years, cumulatively of course. We have cooperative gameplay to thank for that.
Alien movies are known for their gruesome horror, and having pushed the boundaries of Sci-Fi to where it stands today. Taking that into account, we think you should watch this video involving Gearbox’s game development of Aliens' post events in Aliens: Colonial Marines.
PAYDAY: The Heist’s newest DLC episode, “Mercy Hospital”, has got to be one of the best cross-over, non-canon gaming episodes we’ve seen in a very long time. Why not grab a crew and try fighting off the impending zombie doom yourself?
Still think Japanese developers don’t have what it takes to make fun games? Well, Square Enix had signed on to make a new game called Catacombs and was well into development of the RPG Shooter co-op before deciding to put it on hold.
Soon to beginning their 2nd closed beta testing weekend, Muse Games is well on their way to finishing their multiplayer title, Guns of Icarus Online, and starting to hand out beta keys to their Kickstarter supporters.
Ever wanted to know what happened to the TimeSplitters series? After waiting years for additional news on the TimeSplitters 4 development, we discovered that the game’s long awaited return might be sooner than we thought.
The upcoming Call of Duty sequel, scheduled to be officially announced on May 1 and is most likely going to be the next Black Ops game, might be featuring in a near-future setting instead of a 1970's-1980's one.
Once a thief, always a thief, right? Well, don't forget to get your clown mask dry cleaned, because Payday: The Heist will be given a sequel in the not so far off future!
I still consider myself a PC gamer. Though I now own several consoles and handhelds, my heart still has a special fondness for the good old mouse-and-keyboard set-up attached to an upgradable rig. The sad truth, however, is that many developers don't share my fondness for the PC. What used to be staples of games on PC (like dedicated servers and LAN support) are often cut out (which results in much nerd rage, believe you me).
