If your wallet’s still hurting after all the Christmas gift-giving, an extra two bucks for the PSN version of Amy might be a big deal for you. Recently it was announced the game would be coming out next week for $12.99 on PSN and 800 MSP ($10) for XBLA. This caused a bit of confusion, so publisher Lexis Numérique clarified that the price difference is because of Microsoft’s wonky and totally pointless space currency.
Some fans of the game were a little upset that they were going to have to pay more for the game than their Xbox-based brethren, so now they’ve decided to leave it up to us, the consumer, to decide how all this is going to go down. You have two options: get Amy on Jan 10 for the original pricing, or have the PSN version’s price dropped but have the release postponed a bit. When you make up your mind how you’d like to have Amy, I suggest heading on over to the game’s Facebook page so you can partake in a poll. This is what democracy is all about people, so savor it.READ MORE
Yes, you read it right. Gotham City Impostors has been judo chopped back into the brisk cold of February. GCI is a 1st person up to 12 player all out battle game. Online multiplayer against other players via XBLA, PSN, or on the PC.
You’ll be able to pick it up February for $14.99 on the PSN and PC, and 1200 Microsoft Stick It To The Player Bucks on Xbox Live. READ MORE
Well fuck me, this all just keeps getting better and better. As if getting the Silent Hill HD Collection in a few weeks (Jan 24) wasn’t enough, it was just announced via the AMY Facebook page that next week will bring us the highly anticipated arcade horror title. For a paltry $12.99 on PSN (€9.9 EU, £7.99 UK) or 800 Mutant Spring-Loaded Pompoms ($10) on XBLA you can kick monster hiney in AMY when it releases on Jan 10 for PSN and XBLA the following day.
Everything we’ve seen from the game so far points to it being an incredibly creepy game. If this sounds like your type of thing, and I’m sure it does, I suggest supporting it with your hard-earned money. Think of Amy, all alone, with no one to protect her. If you don’t get this game she will die, and that would make you a total dick. You don’t want that, do you? Oh, and head past the break for some creepy concept art. READ MORE
I’m pretty excited about Gotham City Impostors. Something I really love about many games is when they have massive amounts of customization. And no I’m not talking about where I can mess around with the cheek bones on my face, or the distance my eyebrows are apart from each other. I just mean, let me change my hair color, dress myself up however I want, that kind of stuff.
Gotham City Impostors is basically a 1st person shooter, multiplayer battles only. It comes out early 2012 on the PC, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. READ MORE
Unfortunately for the die hard Bloodrayne fans, Betrayal is not going to be a full 60 dollar release. Could it be due the the movie and it’s eternal horribleness? No one will ever REALLY know. But, the games release on Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network might be just what the franchise needs.
New screens past the break, and Bloodrayne: Betrayal will be out August 31st for the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. READ MORE
Remember Burn Zombie Burn!? It was one of the 1st per say, of all these zombie games that have come pouring out of the wood work, or graves. Well, developer doublesix is back with a new zombie game, All Zombies Must Die! While not a direct sequel to Burn Zombie Burn! they are however calling it a spiritual successor.
All Zombies Must Die! will have RPG elements to the game, such as character leveling, quests, many different weapons and weapon combos. A Gamer, a Girl, a Mad Scientist and an Alien are all that stands between 6 billion zombies and the world’s supply of delicious, supple brains. It looks as if there will be 4 player co-op (my fave), for some team zombie killing action. Check out some screens past the break. The game will be coming out sometime in the 4th quarter of this year on the PC, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. READ MORE
Just last week it was revealed that HD versions of both Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X would be releasing on PSN and XBLA in September. RE4 will come out on the 20th with Code Veronica following a week later on the 27th. When it comes to gameplay we really haven’t been able to see much of what these games look like in action, but today, that changes. Below you can sneak a peek at the new and improved Resident Evil 4 and after the jump you’ll find some Code Veronica gameplay.
Having played Resident Evil 4 off and on a handful of times since it’s release, the upgrade in visuals is very noticeable – the textures are crisper and everything is clearer, like you’re seeing what the world really looks like after wearing glasses for the first time. Or maybe you’ve spent your entire life crying, seeing the world through a veil of tears until finally, you heard my sultry voice in the Dead Pixels podcast, immediately cheered up, and can now see a world that isn’t clouded by tears. Head past the break for some Code Veronica gameplay and a batch of new screenshots. READ MORE
Capcom’s revitalizing two classic Resident Evil titles, with hopefully more to come in the future, and thanks to Comic-Con we finally have release dates for both Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X. The good news is we won’t have to wait long as both games are releasing this September.
Resident Evil 4 will become available on September 20 with Code Veronica X following a week later on the 27th. Still no word on what these games are charging but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were somewhere around the premium arcade game price of $15. READ MORE
Gotham City Impostors is a 1st person shooter, yes, and FPS, that is coming out on the PC, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. You basically get to dress yourself up like either super heroes, or villains, and go to town on each other with tons of fun weaponry. Check out the excellent trailer below.
Sure, it’s no Arkham City but it should be a lot of fun for a smallish price tag upon its release in early 2012. You’ll be able to pick it up for $14.99 on the PSN and PC, and 1200 Microsoft Monopoly Bucks on Xbox Live. READ MORE
I have a very unhealthy obsession with the undead. Tell me a movie, game, book, or porno has a zombie in it, in literally any capacity, and I’m immediately excited for it. There are no exceptions to this rule. I’m also a fan of playing with friends so a game that lets me fight alongside my friends against waves of zombies as we build traps, fortify defenses and all to the backdrop of some cool rock and roll tunes had me pretty excited. Then I downloaded the game, launched it, listened to the Elvis-style tunes that immediately greeted me, and jumped right in. READ MORE
Out today on the Playstation Network is the hit game Limbo. Originally only released for the Xbox 360′s arcade, you can pick it up now for 15 dollars on the Playstation Network. Playstation Plus subscribers will be able to get the game for 20% off for the next 2 weeks.
PC gamers will be excited to know the game will be coming to Steam on August 2nd so they can get in on the gloomy action as well. READ MORE
When I think of Bloodrayne, I think of blood and lots of it. The series is known for its hyperviolent splatterfests but with one exception the following screens are surprisingly void of gore. That’s not to say they’re not fun to look at, because now that my eyes have a chance to see what the game will look like when it’s not clouded in a crimson mist of blood and flailing limbs it’s easier to see how good this game looks. I’m glad they gave the game a more stylized, hand-drawn look, it suits the series well.
Bloodrayne: Betrayal releases on the PSN and XBLA on August 30th, head past the break for a handful of sexy screenshots. They’ll treat you right. READ MORE
Bloodrayne’s next adventure was only unveiled back in March and now it’s been given a release date. Bloodrayne: Betrayal will officially kick the ever living shit out of XBLA and PSN on August 30th, and what better way to cap off the slow months of summer than with a stylish 2D platformer filled to the brim with bloody mayhem? It’s been a long time since we’ve had a new Bloodrayne game, hopefully this will fill the void left in many fans’ hearts when the last game was cancelled.
Betrayal brings with it 15 levels set across a variety of unique environments from forests to ballrooms. Along the way you’ll come across puzzles, new characters, intimidating enemies, and you’ll unlock powerful new moves like the Heel Stomp (I’m picturing Rayne’s unique take on the always popular Curb Stomp) that you can use to vanquish them.

Catherine is a difficult game to explain because it’s just so bizarre. What I know is you control the 32 year-old Vincent who’s slutty ways has led him to cheat on his girlfriend Katherine with a girl he met at a bar named… Catherine. The only problem is he doesn’t remember what he did with Catherine the night prior so he has to fight through nightmares filled with puzzles and demonic sheep to remember, but he has to manage this before the time runs out and he… well, you get a Game Over, I don’t actually know what happens. Maybe Vincent decides women aren’t worth the hassel so he falls in love with a chiseled man-god named Cam, only to cheat on him with Kam, starting the whole process over again. That would be an amazing sequel.
Where was I? Oh, right. Catherine. Strangely enough, this game looks pretty great. It mixes a little of the puzzle-platforming I love so dearly with the horrors of sex and debauchery I experience on a day-to-day basis. This is totally my type of game, and if it sounds like your cup o’ tea I suggest checking out the newly released demo. READ MORE
Amy is a magical child with the power to keep an infection from taking over Lana’s body. Amy and Lana are 2 of the few “normal” survivors of yet another post apocalyptic disaster. Amy keeps the outbreak at bay, and Lana MUST keep her close at all times.
A few more pieces of dark art past the break. Amy will be out in September for the PC, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. READ MORE
There were a bunch of great games released in Xbox Live’s Summer of Arcade last year but my favorite was easily the brooding puzzle/platformer Limbo. I gave it a perfect score in my review because of its brilliant puzzles, gorgeous black and white art style, and tense atmosphere that’s best enjoyed with the sound up real high. It’s been a while since I died so many times in a game, but Limbo kept me coming back for more.
Until now the game’s been exclusive to Xbox Live, but that will soon change now that the game is finally headed to PSN. Thankfully, PS3 owners won’t have to wait long to experience this game as it’ll be out sometime next month. If you haven’t had a chance to play it I give it a fully recommend you check it out.

If you are a huge Back To The Future fan, you should be following Back To The Future: The Game. The 5 part series is on it’s 5th and final episode entitled Outatime. The voice of Marty is done by the excellent AJ LoCascio, you almost wouldn’t know the difference if you didn’t know it wasn’t Michael J. Fox. Check out the trailer below giving you a little from all 4 episodes and the 5th which is out now on the Mac and PC, and coming soon to the Playstation Network and iPad.
Notice it says “Season Finale”, which could be hinting at another season assuming the game has done well enough. If you want to give the game a shot, PC and Mac users can download the 1st episode for free over at Telltale Games. iPad users can download the 1st episode for free for a limited time from the iTunes store.

Remember those HD versions of Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X that were revealed back in March? Well, if this yet to be confirmed rumor from the latest issue of Famitsu is correct, Japan might be getting some crisp and sexy Resident Evil action this September. But please, don’t get too excited just yet. Famitsu is a Japanese gaming magazine so even if this is true the September 8th release date might only be for Japan. There’s no word on if this goes for the rest of us as well.
The reported price of the Revival Selection is ¥4,490, or roughly the price of a new game (56 bucks). Not a bad deal since the bundle includes HD versions of two fantastic Resident Evil games. Sadly, many lazier gamers like myself will have to get up to swap discs since the Xbox 360 version will come on two while the PS3 version will ship on a single blu-ray disc. Supposedly, the bundle will also bring with it a digital version of the two Resident Evil Archives books, so that’s a nice bonus for those who missed them. READ MORE
As of right now we haven’t really seen much for Amy. Past the break you can check out 1 short minute of the game, as Lana starts to become more infected as she is separated and cannot find Amy. Below, check out some awesome things the developers are doing graphically with the game.
Past the break you can also check out 3 new screen shots. Amy is going to be out this September, (unfortunately later than expected), on the PC, PSN, and XBLA. READ MORE
I never got around to playing Dead Nation when it first game out last November, but because of Sony’s offering of two free games in an attempt to make amends for the PSN network outage, I finally got my chance to play a game I might otherwise have missed. Now that I’ve beaten the game, and I never thought I’d say this, but the PSN outage isn’t looking that bad. READ MORE
Gotham City Impostors was announced not too long ago, and in my head it was hard to picture what they were going for. But the video below shows off exactly what they’re going for. And it’s looking pretty awesome so far. Basically, it’s going to be a 1st person shooter (multiplayer slayer only).
“Gotham City Impostors blows apart expectations for superhero games with an exaggerated take on first person shooters, set in a part of the DC Universe players have never seen before,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Monolith is creating a game that turns Gotham City upside down and we think fans are going to have a blast with this creative twist on multiplayer heroism and anti-heroism as they play up the classic rivalry between Batman and The Joker.” Screens past the break.
