Chaotic Co-Op: Space Marine

Space Marine's recently added co-op horde mode already has additional content on the way. Latin-Dalek-impersonating Exterminatus mode originally added two scenarios for free, but THQ are preparing to release another chunk of content called Chaos Unleashed. Keeping Chaos on a leash is like keeping a cat on a leash so this is a sensible move but what does it add to the game? For the…

Expansive: Origin Signs Major Publishers

Electronic Arts' digital storefront is expanding next month, with the news that Warner Bros., THQ and Capcom will begin offering some of their releases through Origin. Batman: Arkham City and Saints Row: The Third are the only games mentioned by name but more will be available and "additional titles" are promised in the coming months. Both of those games will still be available elsewhere so…

Turtle Rock’s Shooter Goes CryEngine

VG247 have noticed that things are afoot over former Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock, with their THQ-published shooter being confirmed as a cross-platform CryEngine production for which they are now hiring. Although THQ are not talking about the 2013 title yet, Danny Bilson has claimed: “The Turtle Rock game we’ll probably talk about next year. It’s well underway. It’s fantastic. It’s one of the…

The Real Battlefield Has Purple Dildos

Saints Row The Third - a game that has been distilled from the boiled nightmares of Daily Mail readers - fears nothing in its ambition to mock and satirise the whole of existence. The massive moving targets of the monolithic military shooters that are currently trundling toward us on the hype-train are easy pickings for the Volition crew, as you can see below. Saints Row's…

No “Room” For Space Marine Sequel

Speaking to Joystiq, THQ bossman Danny Bilson wasn't lending support to the idea of a Space Marine sequel, preferring to emphasize upcoming MMO, Dark Millennium. He said: "We've already announced the Imperium in the MMO as a class you can play... and if you combine that it's very active, as opposed to the more turn-based stuff. I'm not sure there's room for Space Marine." Oddly,…

Hmm: Dark Millennium Online Details? No

UPDATE: THQ sent this statement to Massively: It has come to THQ's attention that some media are reporting that we've announced game details and a release date for our upcoming massively multiplayer online project, Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online. At this time THQ has not officially announced a release date and any reported features are pure speculation. THQ will announce confirmed game features and an…

Warhammer 40k Dark Millennium Dated 2013

UPDATE: The info has been removed now, so we must assumed it was posted in error. Whether that means it's wrong, I don't know. We won't be grinding nobz any time soon... THQ's Warhamer 40k MMO, Dark Millennium Online has been dated for the distant future of March 13, 2013. This official website bore the news, with a bit of text about the "Sargos Sector"…

Space Marine’s Exterminatus Co-Op Dated

Relic's mildly disappointing orc-eviscerating game Space Marine is getting a 4-player co-op mode later this month, with THQ dating the roll out of the free upgrade for the 25th. It's called EXTERMINATUS. Which, quite coincidentally, is my middle name. There will be two scenarios in this mini-expansion, in which you can play as tactical marines, heavy-weaponised devastators or whoosh-bam marines. You'll be fighting orcs and…

Trendbusting: Saints Row 3 PC Undelayed

Saints Row: The Third seems a bit more mad every time I see it and the latest announcement concerning its release is one of the maddest things of all. Showing a keen satirical sensibility, this declaration has emerged from the neon-lit, glitterball-strewn funhouse that is Saints Row HQ: THQ and Volition announced that the PC version of Saints Row: The Third is scheduled to release…

Homefront 2 To Be Developed By Crytek

Having closed down Homefront developers, Kaos Studios, earlier this year, THQ have had to look elsewhere to create a sequel for the massively disappointing shooter. They seem to be going straight to the top. It has just been announced that the publishers are partnering with Crysis creators, Crytek, for the project. The company, currently rumoured to be working on Timesplitters 4, and certainly developing a…

Tron Don: Saints Row 3’s Virtual Reality

It looks like Volition are not yet finished with their campaign to subvert everyone's expectations regarding Saints Row: The Third. I thought the craziest it could get is maybe a bigger poo truck than in the second game, but here we see an entire digital world squeezed inside the digital world of Steelport. As Saints Row: The Third's urban warfare spills over onto the digital…

Saints Row 3’s Street Cleaner, Hoverbike

A brief "vehicles" trailer for Saints Row: The Third has turned up. It shows off the game's street-cleaning machine, so that's good, but it also shows off a hoverbike and what appears to be a rocket-boosted sportscar. It neglects, however, to demo the VTOL jet or the the terrifying pedestrian-launcher thing. I've posted the previously revealed (and extensively bananas) game footage which includes those things…

Feature: What the heck do you call an act like that?

A Delirious Hour With Saints Row: The Third

It's hard to separate the reality of playing Saints Row: The Third from what I imagined playing Saints Row: The Third would be like. Because it's pretty much exactly the same. That is to say, it's what I remember playing Saints Row 2 was like - time, tall tales and fondness has seen me forget the busywork of the game and recall only the absurdities,…

Let’s Have A Look At Metro: Last Light

The sentinels at the VG247 news-tower have spotted the distant arrival of twelve minutes of Metro: Last Light footage. Needless to say, I've embedded it below for your watching pleasure. And I must say: crikey on the atmospherics. There's quite a bit of sneaking about and knifing people in the back, but much more straight-up firefight action, and it all looks extraordinary. Not only that…

So, The Space Marine Demo Is Available

Somewhere. I am presuming North American Steam accounts can see it and download it and play it, if they have pre-ordered, due to this post on the main site. The Space Marine page is not visible here in the UK at all. I contacted THQ to ask why that would be quite some time back, but we've yet to get a response. Our guess is…
