Aliens VS February

Chilly, Wintertime face-munching and spinal severing awaits us on the the 19th of February 2010, according to trade mag MCV. Which, while pleasingly soon, does mean we've got one more game to add to the now frighteningly busy Feb/March period. February: it's the new Christmas! Oh, and there'll be three different editions of AvP to choose from - sane people will want Standard, people who…

AvP: The Alien Trailer

We remain quietly hopeful about the upcoming AvP game. If it manages to capture some of the terrifying atmosphere of the original game then we could be in for a treat. The one part of the jigsaw we haven't yet seen in action was the alien itself, which gets fixed today. Eeech, face-huggers still give me the willies. And I wonder if the speed of…

A Note On Ground Control Being On GoG

Update: cheaper Ground Control bundle here, but only for Britons.Quite a few people sent in comments about classic, resource-free, 3D real time strategy Ground Control being on GoG.com. It's interesting to see the game up there for a number of reasons, not least because the original game was actually freely distributed by Vivendi for quite some time. Of course with Vivendi disappearing into the ActiBlizzard…

Aliens Vs Predator: Rumble In The Jungle

Wahey - proper footage at last of what looks to be an epic comback for Aliens, Predators and fallen-from-grace Britdevs Rebellion alike. Should we be concerned they're trying to rescue their reputation by revisiting past glories? Nah, not when it looks as good as this. Only the Predator mode is shown off for now, but there's nonetheless plenty of opportunity to ogle the sci-fi FPS'…

Aliens vs Predator Resurrection

Okay, most folk have known about this for a little while already, but today's the day official word and oh-gawd-so-pretty pictures spill into the public domain. It's Aliens! It's Predators! It's by Rebellion, creators of the still-splendid original AvP game! Admittedly, Rebellion have been churning out rubbish for the last couple of years, but I'm quite sure that, with this, they intend to reclaim their…

Retro: Rogue Trooper

It’s Splinter Cell if Sam Fisher wasn’t such a gigantic pussy. Escape From Butcher Bay if Riddick was more than a shiv-wielding, growly thug. Gears of War with something like brains. Metal Gear Solid, as written by someone with a mental age of more than 14. Call of Duty: Far Future Warfare. So: why wasn’t 2006 tacticalish shooter Rogue Trooper massive?

Retro: Dredd Versus Death

I recently found myself rereading a whole load of Judge Dredd strips I’d eagerly devoured as a violence-crazed teenager. I’d not questioned the politics or attitudes of them at that age – I’d just cheered when Dredd killed a guy. Coming to it now is fascinating, trying to spot the dividing line between satire and the disturbing inherent implication that a police state is a-ok…

Shellshock 2: Shellshockier

Here's a sequel I didn't expect to happen. Shellshock: Nam 67 was what Guerilla Games got up to before making those Killzone games on Playstation 2/3. An underwhelming fps-but-with-more-shoulder, it turned up in the midst of the brief Vietnam obsession that hit the PC in the mid-2000s. It was also a straight down the line war is hell jobbie. Which makes its having a sequel…
