Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is already great before it’s even finished

Croatian developers Croteam have proven themselves a developer of two extremes. For many years they were about dumbfest shooter fun Serious Sam and Serious Sam alone, and then out of absolutely nowhere produced the cerebral and utterly brilliant The Talos Principle. Since then we’ve had a splendid expansion for Talos and a frankly peculiar number of Serious Sam VR games. Now comes Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour [official site], a rather brilliantly titled game resulting from a team-up with indie devs Crackshell, that fits in neither extreme, despite being entrenched in the IP of their most famous protagonist. A top-down twin-stick action game that eschews all the modern stylings of your Hotline Miamis in favour of something much more madcap, frenzied and enormous. Read the rest of this entry »

Serious Sam’s top-down Bogus Detour due in summer

Today on Oh Hey I Forgot This Was Being Made, Cool, Thanks for the Reminder, we have Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour [official site]. That’s the mega-bang top-down shooter with online co-op from the makers of Hammerwatch, which is a good thing for a game to be. And yup, it looks like it could be a lark in a new trailer released by Devolver Digital to let us know that the game’s coming some time early this summer. I look forward to shooting these shots with my shootpals. Read the rest of this entry »

Reigns update adds 100 cards, including fake elephant

“Game Of Thrones + Tinder = You Died,” Alec declared when he told us Wot He Thought of left-right-swiping monarch simulator Reigns [official site]. He enjoyed it, y’see, though I don’t know whether he engaged in intercourse with his PC or… I don’t know how this all works. Whatever he does, he (and you) can now do more of it, as a free update has added over 100 new cards, including new deaths and not an elephant. Read the rest of this entry »

Absolver’s multiplayer melee combat looks ace

When our Adam played Absolver [official site] last year, he declared the online melee murderfest “one of E3’s best games.” Oh we’re all very happy that you had such a good time, but what about us? We won’t get to play until later this year. No scampering around an open world duffing up enemies and other players, not for us yet. If it’s any comfort, we can watch a 15-minute new video with one of the devs explaining the ins and outs of PvP face-mashing. Hey, this does look fun. Read the rest of this entry »

Hands On with cyberpunk action shooter Ruiner

I’ve had my hands on a short demo of Ruiner [official site], the top-down twin-stick action-adventure hyphen-described cyber-thriller from oh-so-naughty publishers Devolver. Not a lot of it, mind, but enough for me to form a few impressions to share. Read the rest of this entry »

Shadow Warrior 2 gets new missions and guns for free

Seeing as Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] has been out for five months, by now you might have murdered millions of demons with every one of its dozens of weapons and be ready for something new. Good news: developers Flying Wild Hog today released a free ‘DLC pack’ adding new missions, perks, and weapons to the first-person looter shooter. Expect everything from a Medusa Ray to trouble with demonic rabbit lords. Have a look at the new weapons in this trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

Laaag! Strafe delayed

Bloodsoaked faux-’90s FPS Strafe [official site] has been delayed a touch, publishers Devolver Digital have announced. It was due later this month, on the 28th, but is now slated to arrive on May 9th. Strafe, to refresh your memory, is a roguelikelike FPS with procedurally-generated levels, a throwback style, and so very much gore. I find the wacky exaggerated xtremeness of everything surrounding the game more obnoxious than endearing but our Adam played a bit last year and said it was good stuff. Read the rest of this entry »
