Fact: zombie invasions suck. Just ask anyone who’s been through one, and he’ll tell you: “bluurble gurrble braiiins.” Does that sound like the guttural moaning of someone who had a good time? No, it sure as shit does not.
Listen to see if your favorite blue-haired beauty made our list of Top 7... badass old folks.
It’s almost a year since the first footage of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine escaped Relic’s offices, but what a difference twelve months can make. Originally pitched as a melée-heavy Gears of War with a speed boost (ranged weapons subdue enemies but you need to get close and trigger one of the ‘cinemaction executions’ to finish ‘em off) it’s now an action RPG with hand-to-hand combat.
Despite the sad demise of the series’ flagbearer, 2007’s Colin McRae: Dirt managed to retain the feel of the previous games in the series while, at the same time, rebooting the franchise to give it a more universal flavor.

Film and television quotes are so entangled with our language that their origins have become irrelevant to most speakers. We use Seinfeld-popularized neologisms and phrases constantly without considering who popularized them (“shrinkage,” “yadda yadda yadda,” “close-talker,” “not that there's anything wrong with that”). But games are a younger medium, and for a time were thought to be the...
With the seas rising to envelop every last acre of dry land on Earth and all natural resources exhausted, mankind is on the verge of extinction.
