Sniper Elite 4 Vid Bursts Heart Shoulders Knees & Guts

Heart shoulders knees and guts (Knees and guts) Heart shoulders knees and guts And jaw and brain and liver and nose Heart shoulders knees and guts (Knees and guts) That's a handy song to help you remember which bodybits get shot, stabbed, punched, kneed, ruptured, shattered, and exploded in slow-motion internal views in the first 'gameplay' trailer for Sniper Elite 4 [official site].

Battlezone 98 Redux Launches Red Odyssey Expansion

Battlezone 98 Redux [official site], Rebellion's recent revamp of Activision's ace RTS-FPS, now has an expansion. Not a new expansion, mind. Not really. Available now is a revamped version of Battlezone's old expansion The Red Odyssey, which adds two new singleplayer campaigns with two new factions and loads of vehicles and weapons and whatnot to continue the secret wars across our solar system and beyond.

Battlezone 98 Redux Brings Back FPS-RTS Fun

Battlezone 98 Redux [official site], a revamp of the splendid sci-fi FPS-RTS from 1998, is out... oh! Today! Now! It's out now! Publishers Rebellion today jumped out a box yelling "Boo!" and flinging it onto Steam. They say they have more revamps coming too. Battlezone's your usual '90s arcade-y RTS - the space race was a cover for an interplanetary hot war between the USA…

Sniper Elite 4 Announced, Going To Italy

Rebellion are returning to World War 2 for more sneaky sniping action later this year, having today announced Sniper Elite 4. This time, Ian Elite is headed to Italy to fight with the resistance against the forces of fascism. While we see Nazis in movies and video games all the time, Mussolini and friends are less common. Is the most known pop culture image of…

Battlezone 98 Redux Blasting Off This Spring

When Sniper Elite devs Rebellion announced last year that they were bringing back Battlezone, everyone responded "Oh. But not the good Battlezone?" (by which I mean I said that, but I'm using my authority to make you complicit, sucker). Luckily, Rebellion soon added that as well as making a game based on Atari's 1980 arcade shooter, they were revamping The Good Battlezone, the FPS/RTS Activision…

Feature: A worthy twist on Dungeon Keeper.

Have You Played… Evil Genius?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. It's a little baffling that nobody's tried to make Evil Genius [official site] again. A transparent derivative of Dungeon Keeper, it did more than enough to distinguish itself from that noble luminary of base building and evil overlording.

Happily Ever After: Rebellion Buy Woolfe

Whoo yeah, October 22nd! This means... Wombat Day? Yeah, it's Wombat Day! And, you, ah, you know what's like a wombat? It's a wolf. Right? Kinda. I mean. They're both mammals. Greyish. Got legs. Basically the same. This works. Happy Wombat Day! Sniper Elite developers Rebellion have made a furry friend of their own, announcing that they've bought up Woolfe – The Red Hood Diaries…

Have You Played… Rogue Trooper?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Alec recently revisted Rogue Trooper to take pretty screenshots of Rebellion's cover shooter, so I'll try not to tread similiar ground. It's a third-person shooter based on a 2000 AD recurring story about a genetically-engineered blue supersoldier fighting with the help of his…

Left 4 Dead Invades Zombie Army Trilogy

Louis, Francis, Bill, and Zoey, and Ellis, Rochelle, Coach, and Nick have returned, though probably not in the way you'd hope for. The Left 4 Dead survivors have found themselves transported back to Nazi Germany to tackle those dreadful Nazi zombies in Zombie Army Trilogy. A free update last night added the eight survivors to Zombie Army's character lineup for your undead-redeading enjoyment. To celebrate…

Feature: The Beauty Of A Sniper's Patience

One vs. One In Sniper Elite Is Still As Tense As Games Get

The everlasting threat of a single bullet, the terrifying glint of a sniper scope in your eyes, and the darkness that covers your enemy make Sniper Elite V2 [official site] one of the most gripping gaming experiences I’ve had. You can't take your eyes off the screen for a second; instead, you must remain calm, remain patient, and study your environment. Was that sliver of…

Tanks, Memories, Etc: Rebellion Bring Back Battlezone

I didn't know Sniper Elite devs and 2000AD owners Rebellion had the Battlezone [official site] rights these days - seems it's passed through more hands than a brown envelope at FIFA HQ. Anyway, the olden tank battles game is coming back, back, back for the umpteenth time, now as a VR-focused game based on the original 80s Atari game rather than on Activision's 90s FPS/RTS…

Zombie Army Trilogy: When It Brains, It Pours

Zombie Army Trilogy [official site], the follow-up to Sniper Elite 3 as well as Nazi Zombie Army 1 and 2, is out now. As the 'Trilogy' in the name suggests, this package also includes Nazi Zombie Army 1 and 2, plus a third chapter based on Sniper Elite v3. Confused yet? Don't worry, there's plenty of delicious brains to go around.

Feature: A retrospective of the best 2000AD game

Dispense 4K Screenshots: Remembering Rogue Trooper

2006's Rogue Trooper, an adaptation of the 2000AD comic, isn't the first game off anyone's lips, unless they're specifically talking about 2000AD games which were pretty good but no-one remembers them. But I remember Rogue Trooper. I was all about 2000AD at a certain point in my life, enough so that an attachment to the holy trinity - Dredd, Johnny Alpha, Rogue Trooper - will…

Sniper Elite Spin-off Zombie Army Trilogy Announced

Yeah, I guess that is Adolf Hitler as a burning zombie demon sort of monster. Okay then. I imagine that's what you'd end up with if you formed a committee to design the video game villain players would feel least bad about killing. One person insisted he be a litterbug too, leaving a trail of Twix wrappers and Coke cans, but it was decided that'd…

AvP Retro: A Stand-Up Fight Or Another Bughunt

Every Sunday, we reach deep into Rock, Paper, Shotgun's 141-year history to pull out one of the best moments from the archive. This week, Alec's 2007 celebration of the real meaning of Aliens, in (the original) Aliens versus Predator. Like every good geek, I have a favourite gaming moment. It's in Aliens Versus Predator, a vintage but oft-forgotten first-person shooter that gets mentioned by my…

Game On, Man: Aliens Versus Predator Free On GOG

Years of pining for a decent Alien game have been ended by Alien: Isolation, a right little stonker, which probably means it's time to start hoping for another good Aliens game. That little extra s makes a huge difference, calling for space marines with big guns yelling "Let's rock!" then melting in sprays of acid blood. If you fancy a fun interspecies rumble on PC,…

Tanked Up: Bionites And Battlezones

In the first of what certainly won't be a regular innuendo-strewn column entitled Dan's Hot Tip, I bring news directly from the Twitter feed of handsomely bearded journo Dan Griliopoulos. Jason Kingsley of Rebellion, the home of Sniper Elite and 2000 AD, discusses the UK developer's plans for Battlezone. [We] "bought the IP at auction from Atari last year. Have some exciting plans for it…
