Zombies are a reliable cultural phenomenon. If you want to sprinkle a little danger and high-stakes drama on your fictional premise, then add zombies. It’s an approach that’s worked for The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later (yes, they’re not technically zombies, but they fulfil the same purpose) and Sony’s upcoming epic Days Gone, among others. Zombies are a universal villain: they’re unstoppable monsters with no recourse to reason, so they’re a natural fit for villainy. They’re also a great bad guy for video games. You can dispatch as many of these shambling horrors as you like without feeling guilty, making…

Indiana Jones and The Great Circle will be a first-person title, with some third-person moments…

Today, boxing is a much less brutal and much more sporting discipline. Most boxing takes place under Queensberry Rules, named after the Marquess of Queensberry, who refined many…

When Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed was released back in 2022, it had some rather thin content to offer. Despite the rich lore that the Ghostbusters IP has available to mine, there were only a few maps and a “story mode” available. The latter served as a tutorial, to a certain degree. Now, the developers over at IllFonic have not only added more; maps, customizations, and ghost classes, but also an extension of the story. Which, by the way, is free DLC for everyone to enjoy. This was a welcomed surprise for players, especially since this story extension was dropping during the…

Of course, without an official announcement, we can only speculate, but the fact that the Switch is starting to show…

It’s fair to say that the console war between Microsoft and Sony has taken on a very different shape to how it originally looked back in the 2000s. These days, Microsoft’s ecosystem is spreading over more than just Xbox consoles; the company is taking a hybrid approach, focusing on both PC and Xbox and attempting to achieve a degree of parity between the two. As such, traditional Xbox-only exclusives are generally rare these days; for the most part, Xbox games also launch on PC, and so any analyst still calling for “Xbox exclusives” is lagging behind the times. Of course,…
