A new Onimusha game's always welcome round these parts - even if what Capcom's just announced looks to take the series in something of a new direction. As long as there's still demons and Samurai, we're still interested...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was the big winner at last night's Interactive Achievement Awards (IAAs) in Las Vegas, scoring a total of five top honors including the coveted Game of the Year title. Rest assured, the likes of Portal 2, Uncharted 3, and Super Mario 3D Land were also shown some industry love...

Game of Thrones: Genesis developer Cyanide has released a batch of shots for its upcoming Of Orcs and Men. Produced in partnership with Faery: Legend of Avalon developer Spiders, the game is Cyanide's first shot at bringing a large-scale new IP to the fantasy RPG arena. The game's hook rests on a simple perspective shift: those big green guys? That's you and your crew. The little pink dorks with the swords and armor? Those bastards are the enemy...
Orcs Must Die! will be out on October 5 for XBLA and October 12 on Steam and other electronic distribution platforms. The game is a blend of tower defense and third-person action, similar to Double Fine's mech-assault game Trenched, where you take the role of a powerful soldier in the battlefield, deploying defenses and fighting at the same time. Orcs Must Die!, however, is in a brightly colored medieval fortress — tower defense that's, logically enough, in a tower...
Could it be? Could it really be? Yes. Yes it could. Sit yourselves down people, and regulate your breathing, because it looks like Valve's epic Portal 2 ARG might just be about to drop the motherlode.
That motherlode? Half-Life.
Yeah. Half-Life. Finally, blessedly, mercifully, after our years of frustration and faith, it looks like sweet, sweet Half-Life might be set for its next reveal. My feelings? Incandescent, explosive joy, obviously, and also a hint of smugness, because I called this one in an excitable semi-drunken tweet to Tyler Wilde the other night. If you want my (non-booze-related) reasoning for that tweet, and the evidence backing up this latest potential development, click on.
There are certain pleasures in life that just make existence worth it. Waking up thinking it’s Monday, only to discover it’s actually Saturday. Deep-fried Twixes. And of course, seeing Gordon Freeman brought to life in a charmingly lo-rent hand-drawn animation. Inside, you’ll see Gordon’s first two adventures recreated with pen, paper and a whole lot of zombie boogieing. Enjoy.
There's a very simple argument to the misguided notion that the PC is dead or dying. Not just the bog-obvious fact that people have been saying it's dead for years now with no sign of being right, much like a crap soothsayer knocking back the date of the apocalypse every time it doesn't happen. Oh no. The reason the PC is evergreen (though you've likely got a grey or black one, with neon bits depending on how hardcore you are) is that anyone can develop for it, meaning that it will always be gaming's biggest hotbed for new ideas...
So you've got a console, probably a smart phone and maybe even a gaming-quality PC. Sure are a lot of options for gaming nowadays, huh? But one major player has been mysteriously absent from the game scene, which brings us to Google's recent reveal of the Chrome Web Store, yet another place where you can buy and download various new games and apps. The service just went live this week so there's not a massive deluge of content just yet, but c'mon, it's Google. There'll be a shitload of stuff in no time, including all kinds of cheap (or free) games that will hopefully have more meat than a typical iPhone or Android app.
