Gamescom 2014: PS4 Sequel Dead Island 2 Enjoys Some Sunshine Slaughter

PS4 Sequel Dead Island 2 Enjoys Some Sunshine Slaughter

Hot as Hell

The original Dead Island seemed to get its head turned by that iconic debut trailer. While it was ostensibly a silly co-operative zombie slayer, said first footage gave gamers expectations that the final product could never live up to.

Sacred 3 (PlayStation 3)

Nothing is sacred

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, while not what you’d call a big success, still managed to garner quite a following among a certain set of gamers, even in spite of a few rough edges. Those that did end up sinking hour after hour into the action role playing game really appreciated its massive open world, extensive loot system, and huge...

PS4's Homefront: The Revolution Development to Be Finished by Dambuster Studio

Deep Silver digs deep to acquire cursed brand

We’re not entirely sure why anyone would want to own the Homefront franchise at this point, as in addition to being a property with very little to differentiate itself from the wealth of other modern military brands on the market, it also appears to carry a curse.

NASCAR '14 (PlayStation 3)

Go daddy

NASCAR ’14 sets out its stock racing stall right from the starting line. Rather than bombard you with heavily edited footage of a Go Daddy branded bar of soap on wheels, it instead tempts you in with a Buzz-esque quiz on Jeff Gordon’s past performances in the Sprint Cup series. It’s these nuggets of trivia that link the racer’s...

Yule like this one
