Helldivers reinforces for a free weekend offensive

Got friends free this weekend? Want to end those friendships spectacularly? Because there's nothing quite like 'accidentally' killing your pals with a turret dropped in from orbit in excellent co-op shooter Helldivers, which is free on Steam for the weekend. Developers Arrowhead have also buffed the game up a little for this event - calling the new version "A New Hell". The sharply satirical Starship…

The RPS Verdict: Helldivers

Adam: Helldiving is hard. I think I am the worst Helldiver. Alec: Helldiving is AWESOME. Adam: Helldiving is the act of diving into hell. Where hell is understood to be one of several planets occupied by hostile forces. Mostly, in our experience, bugs. Bugs that tore our starship troopers into pieces. To be clear about this, Helldivers [official site] is a cooperative game, from the…

Magicka Devs Release Co-op Shooter Helldivers

'Helldiver' is perhaps a good nickname for an elite troop who stands as humanity's last line of defense against alien invasion, but it's not a very realistic job title is it? Hey, Arrowhead Game Studios, how about Senior Earth Preservation Technicians? That'd be a good name for a game. Ah, no matter! The Magicka folks today released deathsome shooter Helldivers [official site] so you can…

Helldivers: Magicka Devs’ Co-op Shooter Coming To PC

With Magicka, Arrowhead Game Studios showed when four well-meaning but inept wizards try to save the world: co-op antics with a whole load of fun and friendly fire. Surely four sci-fi futuresoldiers would fare better? Ha ha. Good news, fans of friendly fire: Arrowhead are bringing their Helldivers [official site] over to PC next month. Released on assorted PlayThings in March, it's a twin-stick shooter…

Conjuring For The Gold: Magicka’s Olympics-Themed DLC

I think we've all - at some point or another - turned on the television during a major sporting event and thought to ourselves "You know what? If I really put my nose to the grindstone and trained like a madman, I too could be an almighty elemental demigod wizard." But that also sounds hard. And to that, I raise you videogames - specifically Magicka,…

QRRASE The Dead: Magicka – Other Side Of The Coin

More Magicka arrives tomorrow and it's of the vampiric, necromantic variety. "Being bad feels good" it proclaims in the launch trailer below, to which I must reply that I probably killed more people while trying to be a hero in Magicka than I'll ever kill by actually putting on an evil hat and setting out to cause harm. I think I've sucked all the fun…

Magicka: Other Side Of The Coin Landing In June

Magicka - much like a vampire or reality television - is seemingly incapable of death. Somewhat brilliantly, it's traversed locations as far flung as Cthulhu's stomping grounds and, er, Vietnam and lived to tell the incredibly silly tale. And now, it's letting you play as a villain, because how else do you impress people after exploring the two least likely settings possible? So this time…
