Halo ends friendship with Mtn Dew Game Fuel, makes Monster Energy new best friend

Is there a more infamous, or more orange, videogame tie-in product than the legendary Mtn Dew Game Fuel?

One look at Bomb Rush Cyberfunk ought to tell you what game it's inspired by—it's clearly a spiritual successor to Jet Set Radio, the 2000 Sega Dreamcast classic by Smilebit. The teaser released by indie developer Team Reptile is very, very brief, but it's so close to Jet Set Radio in style that fans immediately know what to expect — spraying graffiti, skating around the city to funky beats and of course staying one step ahead of the police at all times.

World War Z update out now, includes crossplay

It may have launched in a bit of a barebones state, but since then, World War Z has grown quite a bit, thanks to developer Saber Interactive's robust roadmap of free content for all of its players.

This is absolutely vital because World War Z, a slightly rough homage to the equally rough Left 4 Dead series, is only really fun when shared with friends in multiplayer.
