  • News Paragon Brings Big Beats and Bad Ass Heroes to PS4

    A MOBA for normal people

    Well, those Twitch metrics were always going to mean that MOBAs would make a dash to consoles eventually, eh? Paragon, the Unreal Engine 4 take by Epic Games, is trying to be a little different, though, pitching itself as a MOBA that non-crazy people can enjoy.

    Nothing to announce yet

    A sequel to last year’s adventurous first-person shooter Bulletstorm was in the works at one point, Epic Games’ Mike Capps has announced.

  • News Bulletstorm 'Didn't Make Any Money'

    Bulletstorm was a critical success when it released earlier in the year, and we'd figured it was a commercial success too

    The game spent a number of weeks propping up the UK sales charts, but according to Epic the balls-to-the-wall FPS failed to make the company any money. Despite that small caveat, Epic does not regret handing the project off to Polish studio People Can Fly. "The studio has..
