Walking with the dead
Walking with the dead
If you haven't already had your fill of the apocalyptic blast-'em-up that is Dead Nation, you'll be able to experience it on the go very soon. Originally shown at E3 2013, the zombie infested shooter is finally making its way to the PlayStation Vita this week in North America and Europe. Both the PlayStation 4 version, which...
The portable dead
Dead Nation was announced for the PlayStation Vita at E3 last year, and then was promptly forgotten about. A port for the PlayStation 4 came and went, offering the ultimate version of the zombie-filled twin stick shooter for fans who wanted better graphics and all of the DLC. Finally, almost as an afterthought, Housemarque’s...
Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition launched in a state somewhat more dire than the rotten corpses that populate its campaign. While we pointed out in our review that the game is more fun with friends, the title struggled to maintain a connection during online sessions. Fortunately, that’s just one of the things that’s been fixed as...
Super blood lust
Undead shooters are dime a dozen, and sadly the original Dead Nation did little to differentiate itself from the hordes of decaying flesh already pawing the PlayStation Store. With the release of the PlayStation 4, Finnish studio Housemarque has opted to shine its shaky flashlight on the isometric escapade for a second time – but...
Free for PlayStation Plus subscribers
As already heavily rumoured, Housemarque is reloading undead-‘em-up Dead Nation for the PlayStation 4. Dubbed the ‘Apocalypse Edition’, the re-release will boast a number of improvements over the original PlayStation 3 version, including enhanced broadcasting capabilities and an extra layer of visual...
Dead good news
It may not be officially announced yet, but it seems almost certain that Sony is reanimating dual joystick shooter Dead Nation for the PlayStation 4. Overnight, the platform holder listed an enhanced version of the popular undead-‘em-up on the Asian iteration of the PlayStation Blog, leaving many to ponder when we may find out more...
Don't lose your head
It looks like Housemarque's twin-stick zombie shooter Dead Nation really is coming to the PlayStation 4, as the Asian iteration of the PlayStation Blog has marked it down as a PlayStation Plus freebie for subscription holders. The title was rumoured to be part of the European Instant Game Collection recently, too,
Y'know, we didn't like Dead Nation as much as other people did
It all got a bit frustrating for us. That said, we'd love to hop back int0 the game — and the upcoming Road Of Devastation DLC pack is tempting us. In addition to picking up where the story left off, Road Of Devastation also includes new weapons and equipment to play with. Catch a...
Riding high on the exposure from Sony's recent outage apology giveaway, Housemarque has announced a fresh batch of DLC is coming to its twin-stick zombie blaster Dead Nation
Entitled the 'Road Of Devestation', the DLC sends players to a ruined laboratory. The pack's set to include new levels, weapons and enemies. Naturally it will support full...

There's a flaw in Sony's PlayStation Network "Welcome Back" package that was always going to occur
While Sony's offering a pretty compelling selection of games, the hardcore fans are likely to be the ones that miss out — mainly because they'll already own the choices. Still, think outside of the hardcore circle and Sony's "Welcome Back"...
Dead Nation is a really good top-down zombie blaster, and it's definitely most enjoyable in co-op
The problem is, the game's online co-operative component doesn't have voice chat. Bizarre, right? A little bit. Housemarque's said that they are working to implement the feature with a post-release patch, and hope to introduce it as quickly as possible. So it's annoying that it missed the proper..

Yes, Dead Nation is technically another zombie game
But it's a rad one. We know because we've been playing it and it's awesome. The game's from the makers of Super Stardust HD, basically the masters of the dual-stick shooter. And Dead Nation is a dual-stick shooter. So regardless of whether you're sick of zombies or not, you're going to want to buy this. It's out this week on the PlayStation Store..
We've been waiting a long time for Housemarque's next PlayStation Network title, but finally the wait ends as December nears
Sony's placed a November 30th date on Dead Nation in the US, with Europe getting it just a day later on December 1st. The game will cost £9.99 / $14.99 but will include a platinum trophy. Of course, Dead Nation's ambitious...
What's more exciting than shooting hordes of zombies in the face? Doing it with friends
Ask the millions of people who bought Left 4 Dead on the PC and XBOX 360. We've been sorely missing some co-operative zombie head popping on PlayStation 3, so its with some jubilation that Housemarque's announced their upcoming PSN shooter Dead Nation will be...
SCEA's began inviting people to test out Housemarque's latest PSN shooter -- if you're in the US and are a regular PSN user, check your PlayStation account's associated e-mail address for an invite to the Dead Nation beta
The terms of the beta are simple: "Make sure you are signed in to the PSN while trying to kill as many dirt-ridden flesh...
Housemarque, the developers of upcoming PSN zombie shooter Dead Nation, has a few tips in the game's latest trailer
It's expected later this year. We got a chance to play this recently and its ace. Read more about that through here.
Housemarque don't need a new title to prove that they're the masters of the PSN dual-joystick shooter
We've put more hours into Super Stardust HD than we care to imagine, so it was with lofty expectations we checked out the studio's latest zombie driven PSN endeavour - Dead Nation. The first thing you notice about the PSN download - due later this...
Housemarque's upcoming PSN dual-stick shooter, Dead Nation, continues to look particularly excellent -- even if this latest trailer is only showcasing zombies in baseball shirts
It's all completely cliche, but look at this game's engine - the lighting is sensational. Sony's promising more Dead Nation related announcements at Gamescom next month...
Sony's announced a special event called PlayStation Beta Rooms which will take place in Birmingham, England later this month
The event, which is scheduled to take place on the weekend of July 31st across August 1st, will be held at the Custard Factory in central Brum. Classy. Games playable at the event will include Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5, MotorStorm: Apocalypse, Dead Nation, Heavy Rain: Move..
Have any of you guys seen Planet Terror? It's terrible
Really, really bad. But that's what makes it totally awesome. This live-action Dead Nation trailer reminds us of that. The actual game's looking rather exciting too - it's from HouseMarque (Super Stardust HD) and looks to have the same trade-mark silky-smooth control set-up. It's just, this...
Sony are looking for zombies (or perhaps more reasonably, people who can dress as zombies) to appear in an upcoming trailer for a zombie-related video game
That game is presumably Housemarque's Dead Nation. You'll need to follow some instructions over on the Playstation Blog to take part. Let us know if you get involved.
Nowadays, zombie games aren't getting the attention they used to
We think it's probably fair to say we're all a bit fed up of them right? But, what if a newly announced zombie game was confirmed to be in development by Super Startdust HD developers, House Marque. Yup, thought that would catch you. Essentially, Dead Nation is very much Super Stardust...
We posted about Dead Nation yesterday when the game's title leaked
Now we've got the trailer. The PSN exclusive is a zombie shoot 'em up from the developers of Super Stardust HD. Carrying a grindhouse like feel, it's an isometric shooter in a similar vein as Burn, Zombie, Burn!.
