Gearbox Wasn't Aliens: Colonial Marines' Lead Developer

Beep, blip

According to comments made up by an ex-Gearbox employee, the majority of Aliens: Colonial Marines was not built by the Borderlands developer. In fact, the game – which has been paraded around by gaffer Randy Pitchford and crew in the build up to release – was actually the product of TimeGate Studios, the developer behind the decent...

Squelch

Aliens: Colonial Marines will allow you to relive your youth next month. However, this time you won’t be burning ants with a magnifying glass – you’ll be pumping giant insects full of lead.

Don’t let the mellow piano melody fool you – Aliens: Colonial Marines does not require you to excel at the foxtrot. Instead, it demands big biceps, a steady aim, and a strong stomach.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Story Trailer Flashes Its Teeth

Remember to floss

We reckon that a trip to the dentist is in order for some of the extraterrestrial beings in this Aliens: Colonial Marines story trailer. We understand that maintaining a nightmarish persona is time consuming work, but it’s hard to chew flesh without a well groomed set of gnashers. You'll be able to brave the bad breath from 12th...

We Don't Know What to Make of This Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Commercial

Fruit pie

Danica Patrick should not be in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed – but we suppose publisher SEGA may as well take advantage of her while she is. This commercial for the casual kart racer shows the Go Daddy girl racing against a couple of full grown adults dressed as Sonic the Hedgehog and AiAi from Super Monkey Ball. It’s the...

Like a dragon

Yakuza 5 landed a devastating blow on all of the other new releases in Japan this week. The latest title in SEGA’s seedy series registered 356,757 sales, which was enough to score it a spot at the summit of the region's charts. The hotly anticipated sequel sold more than the combined total of the top three Wii U launch games – but...

Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming to both the PC and PlayStation Vita – but publisher SEGA has had to make some concessions in order to get the MMO running on Sony’s handheld.

Oh No, Sonic the Fighters Is Releasing Overseas

Bleurgh

Quick, cower behind your computer monitors, because the atrocious Sonic the Fighters is heading overseas. We think we’ve made our feelings fairly clear about the anthropomorphic fighter over the past couple of weeks, but just in case you missed them: this game is rubbish. The awful arcade release will be joined by the not-so-terrible...

These Kids Are Really Stoked About Sonic & All-Stars Racing

Passing breeze

SEGA didn’t really need to splash out on child actors to promote Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. All that the publisher needed to show was Gilius Thunderhead power-sliding around OutRun Bay. Still, at least the kids look like they’re having fun – even if they are sitting in front of an industrial fan while someone tips...

How long have you got?

Most story trailers run for a couple of minutes at most – but we suppose that the Yakuza series has always been eager to buck conventions. This brand new Yakuza 5 video lasts for a whopping 10 minutes, and you still get the impression that it could have been longer. In fact, this is fairly tame by the franchise's usual...
