Gearbox is hard at work on making Aliens: Colonial Marines as authentic as possible. And you won't believe the lengths they've gone to. We've got tons of new info, so step right this way. Mind the acid on the floor...
Aliens: Colonial Marines' asymmetrical multiplayer was on display at E3 2012, and we went hands-on with the marines in an interesting game of cat and mouse...
Gearbox Software's Aliens: Colonial Marines is inching closer to completion. It's clear that the game will capture its source material, but will it be fun to play?
Zombies may be getting a little passé, but there's no denying that the undead make delightfully guilt-free, satisfyingly gore-filled enemies. The spiritual successor to Burn Zombie Burn , All Zombies Must Die brings the same dual-stick, top-down shooter action as its predecessor, but this time the experience feels more robust. It still has that arcade-y feel, but the score-based objectives have been replaced with a full story campaign and more RPG-style upgrades and character progression. Of course, there are still endless hordes of zombies to decimate too...
You may have noticed that your football-mad buddies are walking around with a glint in their eyes lately. Thats because the era known as the Dark Ages of Football Games will be ending this month, as the much-beloved 2K gridiron series is revived on the Xbox 360 and PS3 in the form of All-Pro Football 2K8. While it may – or may not – be everything its long-suffering fans are hoping for, its undoubtedly a loud shot across EAs bow in the newly revived Football Wars this

Having watched the way fire curls around wood and propagates across surfaces in Alone in the Dark, we can only advise that pyromaniacs everywhere should put their pennies away for a future purchase. You can almost choke on the smoke.
This time around, the survival horror series reprises the life of private investigator Edward Carnby in modern-day Central Park, New York. The devs have modeled the park down to 50cm accuracy, as well as making sure the major features are bang-on.
Since inventing the survival-horror genre 16 years ago, the Alone in the Dark series has been defined mainly by creeping around in dimly lit corridors and hoping something didn't lurch out of the shadows to gnaw your face off. The creators of the new Alone in the Dark, however, want you to know that crawling through claustrophobic spaces won't be the focus this time around - and to hammer that point home, they'll literally tear those spaces
When it comes to cutting edge trouser-spoilers, Resident Evil is still the daddy. Continually bending the rules of survival horror, the fourth game in the series was not only one of the best games on PS2, but probably one of the best games ever made. And yet… while they could certainly lay claim to propelling horror gaming forward with arse-clenching frightfests like RE Nemesis, Capcom cant claim to have invented the genre. That honour goes to Alone in the Dark, originally developed by

Alone in the Dark is a game that has spent serious time in development - and, eventually, all the early hype surrounding it has ever so slowly trickled away... but, we said it before and well say it again, thats a damn shame because, put simply, the game is shaping up to be a cracker. Forget Alan Wake, forget Silent Hill 5, forget even Resident Evil 5 - this really could be the hidden gem of next-gen horror gaming… so weve donned our boots and delved back into a distinctly
When every day heralds a near-endless procession of videogames to peer at, you quickly learn how to sift the good from the garbage. A particularly telling sign is when, as a game is demoed to you, your glaringly empty hands start to itch. Because you really want to play this one. Which is exactly how we felt during a recent eyes-on with Alone in the Dark.
