about X hours ago from

Shadow Warrior 2 was one of the stand-out indies at PAX East. The team at Flying Wild Hog has overhauled its approach to the classic 3D Realms title, turning the linear slashfest into an open-world experience.

I talked about about my fun with the game in our indie roundup, but you can now see it for yourself. Carve out 12 minutes, because this a long one.

Zombies Look Unhealthier Than Ever In New Screens

If you missed out on Techland’s open-world zombie slugfests when they first release, Deep Silver is making a return trip to these tropical islands with Dead Island Definitive Collection, which includes Dead Island, Dead: Island Riptide, and a new side-scrolling/endless runner called Dead Island Retro Revenge.

Dead Island was something of a breakout hit when it originally release in 2011. The stand-alone expansion Dead Island: Riptide wasn’t a giant leap forward, but it was still pretty fun. This new batch of screens for Dead Island Definitive Collection helps show off the visual improvements to the games now that they are on the new generation of hardware.

The collection will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 31, but pre-orders have already opened up for PS4 owners.

about X hours ago from

Ever since we first played it at PAX Prime 2014, Yager’s Dreadnought has been on our minds. The team-based multiplayer affair opts for methodical action over twitchy PvP. And it’s finally entering closed beta.

Since we first looked at Dreadnought, we’ve played the team deathmatch mode, the one-life team elimination game type, and experimented with some of the ship and weapon customization.

You’ll finally have your chance to give it a try if you sign up and are selected or buy a founder’s pack to enter the beta. The $9.99 Hunter Pack gets you a preconfigured medium Dreadnought hero ship, the Morningstar, 500 Grey Box points used for cosmetic customization, and seven days of experiencing boosting Elite Status when the game launches.

Learn More About Battleborn's Richly Developed Lore In Motion Comics

about X hours ago from

You've played the Battleborn beta (or at least 2 million of you did), now read the motion comic! If you're looking for a little more context to what exactly is going on in the hero shooter, you're in luck. Gearbox and 2K Games have released three motion comics that outline what happened before players meet up with the game's heroes in the campaign.

The series outlines what happened before Penarch, the second to the last remaining star in the universe, was destroyed. It features Battleborn leader Trevor Ghalt, lots of panning and zooming, and more pulpy dialogue than you could possibly want. Check it all out below.

Chapter 1: Running the NumbersA few years and several hundred star veilings are enough to drive even the most loyal espionage agents to betrayal.

In Homefront: The Revolution’s alternate history, North Korea embraces free trade following the Korean War. The country becomes home to a Steve Jobs-like tech genius and the nation flourishes by becoming technologically superior.

Of course, with all of the tech coming out of North Korea and the United States’ hunger for consumables and weaponry, we get into debt. A lot of debt. You can see how that plays out in the game’s opening move:

MXM Makes A Play At The MOBA Market

about X hours ago from

At PAX East 2016, I played some of NCSoft's upcoming MOBA MXM (Master X Master). While I readily acknowledge that breaking into this genre today is a difficult task, there were some cool things going on in MXM that makes it an interesting addition to the crowded competitive MOBA market. It's a "pick a character, then go push down some lanes" traditional experience at the core, but there are some new and interesting elements that help set it apart from the endless deluge of clones.

Perhaps the biggest change is that you're actually in control of two heroes instead of one, with a "tag in, tag out" system to swap between them. You can swap freely in battle, though it has a cooldown to prevent constant swapping abuse. This means if you get focused in combat and one of your characters is down to dangerous health, you can pop your other full character out and into the thick of things.

Nintendo And Riot Alums Come Together For Advance Wars-Inspired Super Senso

It’s been far too long since we’ve seen a new Advance Wars game. Fans are desperate for a new entry, but Nintendo doesn’t seem to be budging. Thankfully, someone else is stepping in give the people what they want.

Turbo Studios’ Super Senso is a fast-paced turn-based strategy game that gives each player a towering robot (the eponymous Senso) and a number of smaller units. You're on a mission to take out the enemy base, and your opponent is live and playing at the same time, with matches finishing in mere minutes.

Each Sense has different abilities, like stronger counters or being able to take an extra turn after killing a unit. Losing your Sense won’t end the match, but it will set you back.
