Set in a post apocalyptic future, players assume the role of a single mutant creature who's trying to both survive the radioactive world and become the most powerful being around. Using the environment's available nuclear waste to mutate it's appearance and abilities, the outcome of its full potential becomes entirely up to the players imagination. This rouge-like action game becomes very intense right from the get-go, so players find themselves in a fast past setting that constantly keeps them on their toes and evolving their strategies to survive. Vlambeer showed off an all new trailer of the game during this past PAX East, shown below:

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare Heads WestNick Puleo

A few weeks back the game got its first set of free DLC, called the Garden Variety Pack, it added a new map, new game mode and plenty of new unlockable content. Today another free DLC pack is being released called Zomboss Down, a pack set in the old west, and it contains a load of content.

In a slight turn of things, rather than working to hunt vaults or take down Handsome Jack, you're actually working for the hideous fascist to help establish his moon base. It's Borderlands... in spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!

The update includes new weapons, many AI improvements, revisited map scripts and pathways that contain lengthy and challenging levels. We checked out the update briefly and the AI does appear to have improved a bit, but we'll need to dig deeper to see just how much fuel is behind the improvements.

The stream should serve as a guide not only to tell you about the new adventure mode and how to take advantage of the spoils, but also showcase just how insane Diablo 3 can get on the higher level fights. Let us take you on...AN ADVENTURE!

Most importantly for owners of Ragnarok Odyssey is the ability to import their characters from the original game into RO Ace - on either their PS3 or their PS Vita. Yep, that's right, RO Ace also supports cross-play between the two systems. The one caveat about importing a pre-existing character into RO Ace is that players will have to start the story over from the beginning. Content hasn't been added to just the end of the original game, however, so there should be a bunch of new content for veteran players to explore back on their way through the story.

Dark Souls 2 is a tough game solo, and some people just want to play with their buddies instead of summoning random phantoms in their game. Here is a quick video tutorial on how to summon your friends into your world using an early game ring that can be acquired quite easily. What does this mean? Never go adventuring in Drangleic alone again! ...

Like the Dead Island series that Epidemic is based on, weapons, loot and crafting items are the focus for the free to play game. As you play the game's modes you'll earn weapon parts and blue prints to craft new weapons to bring into the game. On top of this there dozens of characters that you can pick from that each have defined class roles like healer, damage dealer, and support. It appears as if most characters will be locked and you'll earn a form of currency for playing to purchase new ones. There are also skills, boosts, and several other tweaks that can be made to your character to customize it to your liking. One thing I really enjoyed was that all the characters weren't just human, some were mutated.

Not too long ago, we got news about a new twin-stick shooter that would be joining the cooperative ranks called Waves: Arena Tactics. The idea of a shooter with rogue-like elements intrigued us so we recently chatted with the developer, Squid in a Box, to hear more about this "Dive" mode, how the game came about, and what life event ...

After last night's session we have to say the new game feels a lot more fair and balanced compared to the previous outings. The tension created by the slow, deliberate shots of the sniper rifle, combined by the overwhelming army of zombies continuing thrown at you is still top notch.

Up to 4-players online can play together within the main campaign like in the previous title, but now there will be 2 other modes to enjoy as well. Neocore hasn't revealed exactly what these modes are at this time, but hopefully they will include co-op. With lots of new upgrades and features to the gameplay, as well as a modest graphical boost, players should be kept busy for the $14.99 price point. In addition to 2 new character classes and the level cap being increased to 60, this game is shaping up to be quite the upgrade to the original. The provided chart below describes (in comparison to Van Helsing) what will be offered in Van Helsing II:

In the past couple of years even I have become jaded with collecting points for a total that means nothing, but in January I was pulled back in when I was asked to join a knockout competition with 3 friends on Trueachievements.com.  Each week the eight teams with the lowest Trueachievement (TA) score are knocked out of the tournament.
