Starting at $150 million
If you thought that the ever-growing THQ Nordic was done snapping up developers after it decided to set up its own team in the form of Nine Rock Games, then you might want to reconsider. Embracer Group, the parent company of the publisher, has acquired World War Z developer Saber Interactive for an initial $150 million. The...
Already? It doesn’t feel like that long since Saber Interactive’s arcade basketball game NBA Playgrounds broke the backboard of the PlayStation 4, but a sequel’s already on the way. Due out later this year, the sequel will add new online and local multiplayer game modes, as well as new music, courts, and a single player...
NBA fans have been spoiled in recent years, being treated to arguably the most accurate virtual sporting experience with the NBA 2K series. However, the rise of realistic sims has seen arcade basketball games become a thing of a bygone era. The 90s were jampacked with these types of games, while the early 2000s saw its fair share of titles...

If you thought it had all gone a bit quiet on the Inversion front, you weren't wrong
The topsy-turvy third-person shooter was originally due out next month on the PlayStation 3, but Namco Bandai's now said it won't arrive until "early 2012". The game's release was pulled into question when retailers started updating their internal databases with a March 27th date, as opposed to the..
Namco Bandai released a new trailer for Inversion at the Golden Joystick Awards
But seeing as most of you folks didn't attend the ceremony, the publisher's been nice and shared the footage on YouTube. You can catch the goods after the break. You know, for as generic as everything else in Inversion looks, we're actually quite taken with the mind-flipping gravity stuff. It definitely looks like top..
A protagonist with a shaven head. Enemies wearing silly suits. Cover points made from inexplicable, half-constructed walls. And dreary, muddy environments. But while Saber Interactive's Inversion seems totally generic, its underlying gravity mechanic is what pulls it into an entirely new dimension. Shootouts might be flat and predictable on their own, but they're significantly twisted..
Namco Bandai has pushed Saber Interactive's Inversion back a few days in the UK
The game will now release on February 10th 2012, a whole two days later than previously planned. The third-person shooter is a mix between Gears Of War and physics madness. Namco appear to be throwing a lot of resources at this game. For what it's worth, we're thrilled at the prospect of a new IP.
While most publishers duke it out over their catchy November 2011 release date, Namco Bandai's jumped straight to 2012 with Saber Interactive's zero-g shooter Inversion
The game was originally due to release last year, but has been pushed back to February 7th, 2012. We don't know about you, but we hate talking about 2012 right now. It sounds so far away. There's a new trailer for the game after the..
Ever wanted to invert gravity? Well now you'll get the chance, with Namco Bandai and Saber Interactive's recently announced Inversion
The game is a pretty standard third-person shooter involving aliens and what-not. The twist? You can adapt the gravity of objects with the protagonist's Grappler weapon. You'll need to aswell, because it's not just a case of you manipulating the gravity, but the..
