Deadpool game being pulled from Steam again

2013's kooky comic book stab 'em Deadpool will soon be pulled from sale, again. It'll vanish from the Steam store this Thursday, November 16th, though people who buy before then will get to keep and still play it. Deadpool has a 70% discount before it vanishes too, if you want to break both faces and the fourth wall. Publishers Activision never explain why their games…

Deadpool Is A Videogame With All The Things In It

My Laugh-o-Tron 3000 calculates that this launch trailer for High Moon's superhero manthumper Deadpool is 30% funny and 70% slightly annoying. I know, I know, the Laugh-o-Tron 4000 is supposed to be far more accurate, but I still stand by my old 3000 even though it once determined that Call of Duty: Black Ops was surely written by Gilbert & Sullivan. Deadpool, which stars the…

Merc With A Release Date: Deadpool

The last time we mentioned the Deadpool game, we weren't even sure that it was going to come out on anything other than soon-to-be previous generation consoles, but the recent announcement of a release date also confirmed a PC release. The game is out on June 25th or 28th - the exact time you can play it is dependent on your geographic position. Deadpool can…

Transformers Fall of Cybertron review

Third-person shooter Transformers: Fall of Cybertron was released yesterday in North America, but due to a last-minute bait and switch is still a couple of days off in the UK. I've cannoned my way through the singleplayer campaign, which I can tell you about below. A multiplayer report will follow, by the way - at the moment, the staggered release date and attendant timezone issues…

Mouthing Off: Deadpool Game Announced

Deadpool, shatterer of skulls, gonads and fourth walls, will be the wisecracking star of a game from Transformers developer High Moon. The absurd violence and self-referential nature of Deadpool has made him a "fan favourite", which often means "popular but not particularly commercially viable". It's pleasing to see him enjoying life beyond the page, although I reckon there's a danger that the game, like the…

Fall Of Cybertron Trailer Reveals Metroplex, Dinobots

The latest trailer for Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron is the one most likely to set giddy hearts racing, for it shows both dinobots and the enormous Metroplex in action, fighting and punching. There's an inspirational voice-over from Optimus Prime, too, which is something everyone needs to listen to when they're eating their wheaty breakfast. No illusions about this game being a big dumb firework display,…

Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron Rolling On PC After All

So I haven't actually played Transformers: War For Cybertron, but Alec liked "the bit where the robot punched the other robot." If there is a more ringing endorsement - aside from, hypothetically, "it let me punch, kick, crush, blast, boil, mash, blend, throw the sun at, and gravely insult Shia Labeouf" - I've yet to hear it. For the longest time, however, its upcoming sequel…

War For Cybertron (Singleplayer) review

I've been waiting a while for this, despite myself. While the PC version of this self-evidently console-orientated third-person shooter doesn't seem to have been given all that many developer/publisher cuddles, it exists, and I'm glad. I'm also moving house, so this first chunk o'opinion concerns just the singleplayer. I'm aware the multiplayer's a major component of it, and I have played some of that, but…

Gobbets! War For Cybertron Backstory

Hasbro's head of designing imaginary robots, Aaron Archer, looks incredibly tired in the below video. He shouldn't be. He has an awesome job. I want his job. Anyway, here he is talking about the storyline behind the upcoming hopefully not-shit Transformers game, War For Cybertron. I'm not expecting amazing things from WFC, but I am genuinely looking forward to it in a massively nerdy way.…

Deceptive Con: War For Cybertron Exclusives

See this axe? Yes, the imaginary one I'm holding, made from laserbeams and impossible fury. Well, I'm going to grind it. I quite like Transformers. Ergo, I am quite looking forward to Transformers: War For Cybertron. One of the Transformers I most quite like is Shockwave. Shockwave is a playable character in War For Cybertron - but only if the game is pre-ordered from Gamestop.…

Go, Bots! War For Cybertron Explained

I've only had passing interest in the upcoming Transformers shooty-mcthumpy game War For Cybertron until now, but something about the previews that hit various sites earlier this week, and especially the below video - the first significant chunk of in-game footage to date - has awakened NERD-HUNGER in me. The environments look big and detailed, the robots are an excellent hybrid of 80s blocks'n'colours and…

War For Cybertron – First Footage

Well, it's supposed to be the first footage of Transformers: War For Cybertron, and I think there's some in-game snapshots in there, but this is one of those cases where it's hard to judge precisely where the FMV ends and the in-game stuff takes over. So that means it's looking pretty spectacular and, dare I say it, "cinematic"... Ooh, I had a little shudder there.…

The War For Cybertron Trailer

Following the news that there was going to be another Transformers game, this time a third-person shooter from High Moon Studios, we wondered whether it might not turn out to be rubbish this time. That's still not entirely clear after this following teaser trailer, which is sadly not in-game footage. Still, it does give you a flavour of thing thing, what with it being set…

Transformers Transforming Into Not-Rubbish?

As Jim brain-farted last week, something has to follow/replace the current zombie trend, as its time basking in the golden light of zeitgeist can't last forever. Giant robots seem a pretty good bet: a nerd-loved science-fictional touchstone that's lately found traction amongst the streamiest of mainstream. That is, of course, due in large part to Michael Bay's Transformers movies. The problem is 1) those movies…
