D&D: Daggerdale Gets To The Fighting

The most exciting news in the last 24 hours has nothing to do with PC games. And yet it still feels like it does. HBO have revealed the first fifteen minutes of their adaptation of George R. R. Martin's Song Of Ice & Fire series, in the form of Game Of Thrones. And it looks utterly flipping excellent. (Warning: the clip stops before showing tiny…

Wot I Think: Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime

This top-down arcade shooter came out earlier this week, and is available to buy for a relatively budget price on assorted download services now. Should you cross its stream, or aim for its flat-top? I don't even know what that means, but look at me, I'm saying lines from a film you've seen! That means you will love me. Guh. Here's my verdict on Sanctum…

Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime MP Trailer

Atari's lightweight Ghostbusters game Sanctum of Slime arrives this month on March 23rd, which is eight days after Shogun 2, five days after both Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Homefront and two days before Crysis 2 and The Sims Medieval. So many games! So close together! And lest we forget, games, like breasts, are best when they are pressed close together. If you told me this…

Test Drive Unlimited 2 Says Sorry, Patches

You may remember that Test Drive Unlimited 2 did not have a great Valentine's Day. Launched to cries of, "Er, could you finish it now please?", its buggy state did not win favour. Eden Games and Atari are attempting a big old "sorry" by offering not only a patch that addresses a lot of issues, but also the first globule of DLC for utterly free.…

Testing, Testing: Test Drive Unlimited 2 Bugs

In a surprise move for a videogame, free-roaming racer Test Drive Unlimited 2 "was released" last week, and is now available to buy in shops both real and imaginary the world over. You can read John's impressions of the beta here. It looks like all is not well in car land, however, as the game's shipped with some nasty technical issues across all platforms that…

The Yars’ Revenge Remake Is On Rails

We can reveal that it is an on-rails shooter because, well, that is what is revealed in the art-trailer which Atari have just released. That trailer, as is the fate of all trailers, is entombed below this post for you to watch. It talks about how the super-abstract shield-egg-fly weirdness of the original has been re-imagined as an Anime-inspired shooter, with a touch of Avatar.…

Some Custom Cars In Test Drive Unlimited 2

So I was just having a look at the customization trailer for Test Drive Unlimited 2 (because in my soul I am actually dude in a hoodie driving around my neighbourhood in a noisy hatchback with bucket seats) which you can also see below. And the cars look good. But that's not what got my attention. It was more that, well, the environments - and…

Poo Ghosts? Sanctum Of Slime Footage

Tell me, who is it that you are going to telephone? The ghost removers! Just a small tip to the folks at Atari, for when they make their next trailer for the four-player top-down Ghostbusters co-op: Boasting that the game takes place, "Even in underground sewers!" is not exactly the basket into which you want to place all of your advert's eggs. A game that…

Champions Online Free-To-Playness Dated

It was announced back in 2010 that Champions Online would be moving to a free-to-play model, but that has now been dated: JANUARY 25TH IS THE DATE. Needless to say, you can keep subscribing to unlock loads of the content that will now be available via the "C-Store", or you can play for free and buy various content packs with micro-cash. Here's an FAQ that…

Bit Of Posh: Test Drive Unlimited 2

Come on open world racing games, smarten up. After the weak Need For Speed World, and the almost great Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, I'm now banking my hopes on next year's big-money, big-car Test Drive Unlimited 2. The original Test Drive Unlimited also fell into the "almost great" category, so I'm very much hoping to see even more this time. To get an idea…

Ghostbusters Electronic Video Footage

The pictures that move have looked into the future and foreseen the workings of a new Ghostbusters game, known as Sanctum Of Slime. The glimpses we get of the 4-player co-op game make it look fairly colourful and entertaining, with a moderate chance of progressing into being mental. It's got a chaotic Smash TV sort of thing going on, but with a whizzy 3D camera…

Atari Returns To Ghostbusters, Slime

A new game based on the comedy wraith-wrangling movies has been revealed by Atari, via USAToday for some reason, and it's going to be called Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime. Mmm, sanctum. Although it returns to the tale of the rookie 'buster from the previous game, it looks like Atari (and developer Wanako) are going down a slightly different route, with this game being a top-down…

No… But Yes! Yars’ Revenge To Be Remade

Have you ever actually played Yars' Revenge? You can play it here. Of all the games to remake, Atari choose that? A classic, perhaps, but it nevertheless boggles the mind. Big Download got the scoop: "This new version is the first game that's due to be released by Killspace Entertainment... Its remake of Yars Revenge will have a Japanese anime art style as it tells…

No Euphemism: The UnderGarden Demo

Lovely ambient underwater explore 'em up The Undergarden has a demo out, and you get can it here. It's time limited to thirty minutes, so I suppose you have one chance to speed run the entire game. (The full thing is just $10.) It's looking really lovely, incidentally, as I noted when I watched John playing the full game yesterday. We should have some thoughts…

Most Tranquil: Test Drive’s Ferrari

If you are a British motorist, like me, then you are more likely to associate sports cars with Jeremy Clarkson's sad, frantic clowning than you are any sense of genuine style or chic, which is something of a shame. After all, objects like modern Ferraris really are engineering genius pushed to fetishistic extremes, and I think that's what Atari and Eden Games are getting at…

Neatly Trimmed: The Undergarden

Vitamin G and Atari have announced their intriguing puzzle-platformer, The Undergarden. Here's what they say about it: "The UnderGarden is a casual zen-like game that challenges players to explore beautiful underground caverns filled with strange life forms, physics based puzzles and plenty of hidden secrets. The world comes alive and music evolves as players get deeper into the world of The UnderGarden." There's shades of…

Cryptic Messages: Emmert Talks Neverwinter

It's been fascinating to watch the MMO scene evolving over the past couple of years, and seeing the various players stepping away from traditional models. Now it seems to be Cryptic's turn. After City Of Heroes, Champions and Star Trek, they are now looking at creating something a little different: Neverwinter, a D&D game that appeals to both the adventurer and the Dungeon Master, relying…
