A Taste Of Wang: Shadow Warrior Demo

By Adam Smith on March 26th, 2014.

I liked everything about the Shadow Warrior reboot, except for the wang jokes. But to prove that there are no hard feelings, I’ve slipped a wang in right there at the top of the post. The reason we are returning to Shadow Warrior, as the headline makes clear, is to herald the unexpected (though far from premature) discharge of a demo. This coincides with a 75% discount so you can take a test ride and then settle on the full package for £7.49. That massive discount won’t last for very long – you know how it is – and the deal ends on March 28th. Important details below.

Board To Death: OlliOlli Coming To PC

By Adam Smith on February 28th, 2014.

I haven’t played a skating game since the last Tony Hawk that was actually a skating game rather than a modern American soap opera. The plot synopsis for a skating game should never be more than a thousand words long and it certainly shouldn’t contain sentences like this: “Gaining their approval, he is let into the ranch, and meets the leader of the group, Iggy VanZant, a very rough type guy who isn’t fond of outsiders. He agrees to let him crash at the ranch if he obtains some wood for a half-pipe he is building.”

Thank the skate lords for OlliOlli then, a side-scrolling burst of speed and trickery that pleased owners of Playstation Vital Systems when it was released on the handheld last month. The trailer below is rather spiffy and the PC version will be playable at EGX Rezzed, where developers Roll7 will also unveil their next game.

Bromantic: Devolver To Publish Broforce

By Adam Smith on February 12th, 2014.

Broforce is the smartest game with the dumbest name. Eighties action movies are the thematic springboard from which it leaps through the air – in slow-motion, away from an exploding nuclear power station, with a knife between its teeth – but its design is as retro as a 3d printed sculpture of the future. The blocky graphics might suggest otherwise but developers Free Lives have taken the run ‘n’ gun basics of Contra and spliced them with the full force of modern trends and techniques. Along with a gloriously effective arsenal, Broforce contains fully destructible scenery, variable attack patterns, exquisite particle effects and a dash of Spelunky-like compulsion. It’s heading to Steam Early Access this March under the guidance of publisher Devolver and if that news doesn’t make your mullet stand on end, you clearly haven’t played the free Brototype. Do so immediately.

Serious Sam 3 Explodes Onto Steam Workshop

By Nathan Grayson on November 2nd, 2012.

Wait! Before you shoot me, I just want to get your opinion on the quality of a couple beautifully aged wines from my cellar.

That right there? That’s Sir Buttersworth. His hobbies include savoring life’s most delicate fineries and single-handedly justifying the existence of Serious Sam 3‘s Steam Workshop support. Oh, and loping ever onward – to almost completely certain death – in dim hope of truly understanding that most top-hat-less of Others, Serious Sam. Can’t forget that. But he is not alone, neither in that indirectly suicidal pursuit nor his presence on Steam Workshop. Sam’s only just arrived on Valve’s mod-friendly service, but his page is already impressively populated.

Ryan Godling: Hotline Miami Comes To Steam

By Alec Meer on August 13th, 2012.

Sweet hat, dude

Hotline Miami will eat your children, and then you will ask to marry it. I have a new preview build on my PC, but I’m almost too intimidated by its brutal wonder to play it. While I attempt to gather courage, you could play it yourself if you’re attending GamesCom. Or, if you can wait a little longer, you’ll be able to buy it via Steam. That’s today’s announcement for Dennaton’s neon-hued odyssey of top-down sadism, though sadly it is not accompanied by a release date. You’ll have to make do with watching the new trailer below, featuring one of the best bits of the game’s soundtrack, and wishing Hotline Miami would somehow materialise on your hard drive.

Boom: Serious Sam: The Random Encounter

By Jim Rossignol on October 7th, 2011.

Watch the video.
Vlambeer’s Serious Sam spin-off/remake/demake/upmake/downmake/JRPGmake Serious Sam: The Random Encounter was always a bit of a bonkers proposition. The gameplay trailer (below) hasn’t really done much to change that perception. It is quite random.

And it looks totally awesome. Vlambeer say: “The game’ll launch on Steam & some other digital distribution platforms October 24th for $4.99. We’re pretty damned excited, that’s our first commercial release, I think.” They’re right.

Write Graffiti For Serious Sam 3: BFE

By John Walker on July 19th, 2011.

I'm going to be the winner.

A rather silly email appears alerting us to the shock news that Croteam’s Lead In-Game Wall Graffiti Artist, Davor Kovač, has quit the company midway through the development of Serious Sam 3: BFE, “to pursue his dream of being quoted in a rushed press release”. So now the team are asking players to come up with the nonsense that will appear on the game’s walls.

Exclusive: Serious Sam 3 Headless Kamikaze

By John Walker on July 8th, 2011.

It's good to personalise the infinite screaming hordes.

Here’s something you’re seeing here first. A new trailer for Serious Sam 3 BFE, following the life of one of the game’s many headless kamikazes. Because that’s the correct way to trail an old-school shooter – a documentary about a headless man with bombs for hands. We’re all agreed on that. So head below to take a world exclusive peek at the new video.
