Zombies are immortal at this point. It doesn't matter that as gamers we have killed them by the millions in seemingly every genre with all manner of weapons, - at this point there’s just no getting rid of them. We might be sick of them as video game villains but every time we think we’re done to (ahem) death, they rise from their graves with some new twist. Case in point- Audio Defence: Zombie Arena.
After a series of betas, the multiplayer always-online racing title The Crew has launched on PC and consoles. Its ambitious game world includes an approximation of the entire continental United States, and the racing mechanics are solid enough. Sadly, it looks like the developers fell flat on delivering some fundamental functions despite the impressive features.
Capcom has released Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for the Nintendo 3DS, completely remastering the visuals and sound of the first three titles of this beloved series. Is it worth revisiting these games? Hold it...
Sltherine's new turn-based strategy title Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon offers a great many units and scenarios to play with, but possesses a visual aesthetic that feels almost 20 years old at this point. Warhammer fans will find much to love, but newcomers could easily become bored or disillusioned.
The spinoff could have taken more risks, but the experience is different enough to satisfy fans.
Among the releases of Dragon Age Inquisition, Far Cry 4, Super Smash Bros for Wii U and other major titles, you could be forgiven for forgetting the coming launch of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. The title hasn't had the same marketing push and doesn't carry the big-name franchise that many of those others have, but ahead of its release at the end of this week, positive reviews have come in.
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions launched this week, bringing with it a new twist on the arcadey top-down, twin stick shooter in the form of 3D grids. The game also offers a more classic experience, but has the combination worked, and is it worth your money?
Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire arrived last week, the latest in a line of Pokemon remakes and the second 3DS title in the series. X and Y were the first handheld Pokemon games to use 3D graphics--offering an original story and new characters--and the developers have now applied the advancements to previous titles.
The Walking Dead? The Wolf Among Us? With a single episode, Tales From The Borderlands shows that it has the potential to be the best Telltale series released this year.
The Wii U title offers a staggering amount to do and see, and the sheer joy of playing and collecting permeates every aspect of the game--this is the best game in the franchise to date.
Ironhide Game Studios released Kingdom Rush: Origins. It plays like its predecessors, adds one or two new things but is every bit the kind of tower defense game you've come to love from the studio. A must have on all mobile devices.
The consensus is that Far Cry 3, unsurprisingly, stays very true to the successful Far Cry 3 formula, with many of the same mechanics and features transported to a new locale--but another fun romp through an exotic environment may be all that fans are looking for.
A war game like no other- you’ve really never played a game like This War of Mine.
First-person shooter addicts, you've found your new mouse.
The title received fairly mixed reviews, with most complaints centering over bugs (which can be patched out over time) and a failure to fix the series' persistent issues. Fans of the franchise will likely still find something to enjoy, but this doesn't seem to be the revolution some were hoping for.
