Climb Out Of The Space Ship For The First Person Shooting Demo

You can check out the extended demo below which features both the traditional on-foot exploration and shooting, as well as zero-g shooting. The first-person shooting aspect of the game is being developed by the studio, Illfonic.

about X hours ago from

Andy Serkis might be known for his work in The Lord of the Rings and recent Planet of The Apes films, but he’s got a history in gaming, too. Serkis was featured in Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and Heavenly Sword. He’s now joined the cast of another.

Developer Mike Bithell announced that Serkis has joined the cast of Volume, a retelling of the Robin Hood story. Serkis plays the sinister Guy Gisborne, a CEO who runs the country of England.

Serkis joins Charlie McDonnell as protagonist Rob Locksley and Danny Wallace as his AI accomplish, Alan. Volume is slated for release on PlayStation 4 and Vita first. PC and Mac versions will follow one month later.

Extreme Exorcism Dares You To Outsmart Its Shifty Ghosts

about X hours ago from

Halloween may be the only holiday that delights in all things spooky and supernatural, but developer Golden Ruby Games wants to bring its spirit into 2015 with the paranormal-themed arena platformer Extreme Exorcism.

Players will control Mae Barrons, an exorcist tasked with purging a haunted house of its ghostly occupants. Mae is more hardcore than other members of her profession; instead of wielding the tried-and-true combo of a cross, bible, and holy water, she brandishes a lethal arsenal of swords, guns, explosives, and even a razor-edged boomerang.

Extreme Exorcism hopes to earn its title not just with Mae's unconventional take on her profession, but also with challenging matches that get tougher the longer you play them. Each time you cut down a ghost, another appears in its place. These ghosts will mimic your moves, meaning you’ll have to strategically think about your platforming if you plan to make it to the end of the match.

Our Time With Evolve's Big Alpha

Our Time With Evolve's Big Alpha

Evolve's self-proclaimed Big Alpha is now underway for the Xbox One, PC, and PS4, and we hunted and got hunted in the game's appropriately named Hunt mode.

Being an alpha, naturally not all the game's modes or features are enabled, but the core experience is there: You take on the role of one of four hunters or the single monster. The goal here is simple: take down the monster if you're a hunter, and if you're the monster you must survive the round or alternately kill all the hunters or take down the map's power relay.

Picking who you want to be is easy: You can select to always be a specific class of hunter or the monster, or you can rank the five roles in order of most- to least-desirable. From here the game will try to match to your preferences. Of course, you can also state that you have no preference in which role you want to play. The menu lists an option to invite your friends, but as of the time of this writing, it's disabled.

Exclusive First Look At Alone In The Dark: Illumination Gameplay

We had a chance to see Alone in the Dark: Illumination in action this year at PAX. The title is a departure from previous entries, taking cues from Turtle Rock Studios’ Left 4 Dead, with additional procedurally generated elements.

The title features four-player cooperative action, in which light plays a vital role in surviving the enemy onslaught. You and your team will progress through a multi-stage encounter with a final fight against an elder god. And, because you can’t really kill a god, you’ll need to trap it or escape.

Lead Your Army Through Ancient China In Koei Tecmo's Newest Tactical Action Game

about X hours ago from

Koei Tecmo America announced today that the latest entry in its popular Dynasty Warriors series, Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires, will arrive in North America on January 27, 2015. The tactical action expansion of Dynasty Warriors 8 will focus on the lives of its 83 playable characters, and will even let players create their own custom hero.

Instead of the linear mission based style of Dynasty Warriors proper, Empires lets you conquer Ancient China territory by territory, similar to a board game like Risk. You decide which battles to engage in, while simultaneously managing your army, resources, and economy.

Empires also avoids the traditional story telling style by letting you create your own character, developing his/her story through your gameplay rather than following one of the preexisting characters. Although the actual combat is still traditional Dynasty Warriors, the Empires modes add a bit of extra depth.
