Amazon Game Studios Announce Three Games

Amazon have announced three PC games being made by their own games studio: a multiplayer sandbox world, a MOBA-ish 4v4 mythological murdersport, and some sort of class-based Battle Royale 'em up. That sandbox 'em up sounds like it might be interesting, at least. As Amazon also owns Twitch, all three games have bits to entertain livestream viewers or let them fiddle with what's going on.…

Feature: RED HOT

Strider review

Hands up folks, who wants to play a game that makes you feel awesome? That looks incredible? The game that has had my stomach doing somersaults, my right thumb hammering away for all it's worth, and my brain pumping out adrenaline like Coca-Cola at a Justin Bieber concert? Strider is that game! Oh man Strider is that game. YES! If 'it' for you is 2D…

ReNinja: Strider Leaps In Today

As a writer for Rock, Paper, Shotgun I am contractually obliged to know absolutely nothing about the series that Capcom are most recently rebooting.

No, not the pony named after Aragorn from Lord of the Rings. This Strider is an ultra-ninja from a future that (sadly) never will be. He battles the Cybersoviet Union's robot legion in…

Hot Wanzer Action!

It might be the lack of sleep, or the caffeine I've used to prop my brain open, but the glimpse of robo-customisation in the new Front Mission Evolved trailer (below, via Big Download) made me a bit giddy. Also: roller-skating robots in the classic Japanese urban robo-war style, big guns making noise, and wanzers (that's the mechs) doing circle strafing in the classic This Game…

Squenix Announce Front Mission Evolved

Robots! Squenix seem to be making some serious inroads to newish (or at least refreshed) gaming territory, with their most recently announced title being a mech-based third person shooter called Front Mission Evolved, of this lineage. The robots in question are called "Wanzers", which made me snigger a bit, but I'm sure they'll satisfy a few robo-porn-hungry gamers out there. Clearly it's going to be…
