Forget Call of Duty, Real Men Need the Retro Love: Call of Duty!?

Oh, screw all of you. This had to happen eventually. Let’s just call it irony or something, and get on with our lives. Even the all-consuming, indestructible, almighty, haul-ass-out-of-my-way-I’m-off-to-crush-Tokyo behemoth that is Call of Duty had to start somewhere. It had its fairly humble... Read More

Because the Tiniest Ogle at ‘Doom 4’ is Better Than No Ogle at All

Earlier this week, Doomworld brought us a look at the old, scrapped version of Doom 4. It was so utterly, ball-bustingly non-Doom that manly tears were shed across the globe. What in the name of holy balls is this? A generic Rage-ish FPS? Not in our effing lifetimes. Doom was, is and always will... Read More

The 'Retro Freak' Cannot Be Stopped, Plays Anything and Everything

Meanwhile in ‘Tekken 7': Guess Who's Back. Back Again

As a franchise, Tekken has never been afraid to eff around. There’s some relatively complex, practical pugilism at its heart, true enough. But 'neath the surface, there’s some real balls-out crazy going on. The ongoing saga of the Devil Gene has taken the plot of the games to some whacked... Read More

Now Here’s Some Old-School Badass: Sharp’s NES Television

Back in Ye Olde days of gaming, ‘hooking up’ consoles was a real ballache. I remember my first, the PlayStation I was given at the age of twelve. It took my long-suffering pa a whole school day to fandangle wires and TV channels and such to make it work, and he was thrilled with himself when... Read More

Grab Grandpa's Shotgun, 'Dying Light's Bozak Horde is Coming

Whether you call it horde mode, survival mode or something a little nuttier like chicken pot pie mode (I’m not judging, you crazy bastard), you know the concept. It’s just you, in a small stage/arena, fending off waves of nasties with whatever you can find. There are score multipliers and pick... Read More

My, 'Metal Gear Solid V,' What Norktastic Action Figures You Have

‘This is either madness or brilliance.’ ‘It’s remarkable how often those two traits coincide.’ If you’re wondering why I’m bringing an obscure Pirates of the Caribbean quote to your attention (which you are, because I’ve just wantonly typed it at your faces with no context or... Read More
