Feature: Throwback Thursday

Why are so many old games coming back? We asked developers why they chase nostalgia

Remember that thing you like from 10 years ago? It’s probably getting a sequel. Shenmue 3. Evil Genius 2. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2. The calendar of upcoming games is packed with throwbacks that will revisit the worlds we left behind over a decade ago. Oddworld: Soulstorm is heading back to the strange homeland of Abe the skinny green freedom farter. Mechwarrior 5 is booting…

Feature: To the Max

Evil Genius 2 wants to feed the sharks, not jump them

This is Maximilian. As you can see, he is a very insecure criminal mastermind. Not content with having a scar on his left eye, he wears a monocle on his right. He is trying very hard to be the stereotype of evil. When you need this many sinister affectations to intimidate your staff, you are probably broadcasting your own neuroses straight to the camera. But…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Zombie Army 4: Dead War pits four players against Cloud Hitler, the hitler made of clouds

Reveal trailers are funny things. Sometimes, they flawlessly showcase the brilliance of the game in question. Sometimes they show you absolutely nothing. And sometimes, they end with a crimson-tinted smog effigy of Hitler laughing at you from the skyline. The reveal trailer for Zombie Army 4: Dead War is one of those ones. Have a butcher's below (I'm so sorry, that Watch Dogs game has…

Evil Genius 2: World Domination unveils sinister 2020 launch plans

Almost two years after announcing it, Rebellion have given us our first glimpse of James Bond-ish super-criminal sim Evil Genius 2 at E3's PC Gaming Show, plus plans to launch next year. Sequel to Elixir's entertaining 2004 Dungeon Keeper-alike, it's all about balancing the (evil) books and designing your volcano isle hideout for maximum work efficiency and resistance to super-spies. From the brief glimpse we get today,…

Take cover! Sniper Elite V2 Remastered shoots out

Sniper Elite V2 is the one where you can shoot Hitler in the testicles, right? I mean shooting people in the testicles is par for the (gruesome, slow-mo, finely rendered) course in Sniper Elite games, but this was the one with the Hitler hunting DLC. Except... it turns out every game since has included a different spin on Reich castration. Feels like flogging a dead…

During a development update stream on Twitch, Rebellion revealed that they've got more WW2 sniping on the docket, starting with a remastered version of Sniper Elite v2 due later this year.

They announced today that they've bought TickTock Games, the Yorkshire mob who had previously chipped in on Rebellion projects including Rogue Trooper Redux.

Feature: It's not ALL about guns...

Have You Played… Gun?

Playing Gun is a pleasant surprise every time (for me at least). It has this sneaky way of vanishing from my conscious thought only to resurface again later, at which point I have largely forgotten all about it. And hey look! It’s a cinematic Western with Brad Dourif in it! How did I forget this game?

Skellington bothering co-op shooter Strange Brigade is out now

Ah, the undead. Nobody likes them, really. Not even the vampires - far too pretentious. Those wanting a fresh opportunity to put the walking dead firmly back in their graves may be well served by Strange Brigade - Rebellion's 1930s pulp adventure-themed squad shooter, which is out now. Designed for four player co-op (though playable solo), players control a globe-trotting band of magic-wielding, gun-toting adventurers…

Feature: Shoot the real me!

We asked a lot of people: what would you do to a clone of yourself?

Over the past several weeks I have sent a lot of interesting people who work in the games industry an email containing the following scenario: "You enter a room. The door locks behind you. From a door opposite another you enters. This other you is a perfectly identical clone, created in the exact instant you entered the room, but as every second ticks by they…
