The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

The 10 Best Games Based On Movies

I had twin criteria for this. The first was 'is it a decent game?' and the second 'does it meaningfully evoke the spirit, themes or characters of the movie in addition to having Quite Good Guns And Graphics?' The second saw quite a few games which would otherwise qualify ruled out. This year's Mad Max, for instance, was an agreeable murder-romp but it's much harder…

That Riddick Game Diesel Teased? An iOS Movie Tie-In

Update: I sought clarification from Gaming Corps about Vin Diesel's comment, further games in the Riddick series, and whether or not PC will be involved, and CEO Nicklas Dunham replied with the following: "At the moment we can only disclose that the iOS version is just the beginning." So there's more to come, but it's still far too early to determine the exact form it will take.…

Diesel Powered: New Chronicles Of Riddick, Maybe MMO?

I've not seen the third Riddick movie yet, but oh boy do I plan to. Obviously Pitch Black is a great action movie - how could anyone question a film with the opening line, "They say most of your brain shuts down in cryo-sleep. All but the primitive side, the animal side. No wonder I'm still awake,"? But then comes The Chronicles Of Riddick -…

Chronicles Of Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena review

It's taken me a while to get around to Starbreeze's remake and expansion of Chronicles Of Riddick, but I've finally punched and stabbed my way through it. The original game is one of my favourite olden FPS games, as detailed here, but can this contemporary-tech revamp and sizable sequel live up to the legacy? Here's Wot I Think.

Riddick Footage Aplenty

One of 2009's more interesting FPS projects is Assault On Dark Athena, which is both a remake of the original Chronicles Of Riddick and also its sequel. The titular Dark Athena section follows on from the first game, and takes place aboard some kind of crazy spacelane pirating merc ship, onto which the begoggled space murderer finds his way. I was lucky enough to preview…

Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena Trailer

Earlier in the year we talked about just how good Chronicles Of Riddick was. Astonishingly, the Riddick game to be released next year, Assault On Dark Athena, is not only a complete remake of that original game in Starbreeze's modern engine, but also its sequel, with a full-length campaign of new man-butchering material. The debut trailer for this delectable double whammy is after the jump.…

Retro: The Chronicles Of Riddick

One particular game seems to have come up a great deal in our gaming discussions from the past couple of months, and so I decided it was time to go back and play it. 2004's The Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay (TCOREFBR?) is one of those games that sits at the back of my mind, silently benchmarking everything else that has appeared since.…
