Review: Goat Simulator (Xbox One)

Goat Simulator (Xbox One)

Bleat It

If you have logged into Steam recently, you have undoubtedly noticed that there are simulators for just about every single type of activity. Farming? Check. Warehouse and Logistics? Of course! This trend is obviously ripe for parody, so it made sense that the April 1st release of Goat Simulator on Steam last year became a hit. Now over a...

First Stage: Infinity Runner (Xbox One)

Infinity Runner (Xbox One)

Running and running and running and running...

Wales Interactive's Infinity Runner is launching on Xbox One next week, and while we're working on our review right now for you, we thought we'd capture a bit of footage to give you a taste of the game.

We're gonna need a bigger goat

We Are Doomed (Xbox One)

Yes we are.

Coming from indie studio Vertex Pop, WE ARE DOOMED (they like to have the title in uppercase, apparently) is a twin-stick shooter that looks like Jeff Minter got his hands on Geometry Wars and just went crazy. In Their Words: WE ARE DOOMED is a twin-stick shooter where you zap polygon baddies with an absurdly overpowered laserbeam...

Review: We Are Doomed (Xbox One)

We Are Doomed (Xbox One)

Gone too soon

When it comes to twin-stick shooters, Geometry Wars changed the game when it reared its head back in 2003. Plenty of pretenders to the throne have come and gone and the release of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions (and the subsequent free content-doubling DLC pack) has raised the bar once again. Out twin-sticking the wireframe champion is...

Project Cars Release Date Finally Locked In

We promised we'd tell you...

Well, it wasn't all that long ago (a few hours in fact) since our last story about Namco Bandai's Project Cars. But we said we'd tell you when the game's release date was finally locked in. Saying that, the game has been delayed three or four times from fixed release dates, so we can't promise anything. However, Namco...
