Fairy tales and urban legends aren't really real, are they? Because I don't think anyone told that to the urban legend that's kidnapped and probably mutilated loads of small children in this horror/thriller set in the woods of Norway. Read More.

Yes indeed the Giant Chicken is back in this rowdy video game nod to Family Guy. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when walking into the demo for this one, but I was incredibly blown away by how hilariously fun this game was. In it, Stewie is being chased by his half-brother Bertram throughout the multiverses (apparently because Stewie has killed Bertram and now a multiverse version of Bertram is trying to stop him). Read More.
Klei Entertainment, the same company that created Shank and Eets has come up with another challenging game within the traditional 2D format. One of Mark of the Ninja's first appearances was in the form of a text based adventure to introduce the basic premise of the game. Read More.
ZombiU is a planned Wii U exclusive from Ubisoft; an entry into the library of Nintendo's newest console. It's a pretty good indicator of the capabilities of the Wii U controller and was very interesting and fairly intuitive to play on. Read More.
Out of the entirety of E3, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit came as perhaps my own personal most surprising title of the show.

Not entirely sure what he's been doing with said ducky, but the pictures, once posted online, are bad enough to hurt his reputation. Read More.

When walking into the demo for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, I wasn't too sure what to expect. My sole experience with a Transformers game consisted of me getting incredibly frustrated because I wasn't having fun and could barely tell who was on my side and who the enemy was. Read More.
End of Nations by Trion is an upcoming Real Time Strategy Massively Multiplayer Online Game. These two genres don't typically mix, so it's interesting to see how Trion has turned a unit based RTS into a game that can be played online with 80+ players at the same time. Read More.
