Those with loaded guns, and those who dig...

The Spaghetti Western/arena combat/ shoot'em up Secret Ponchos will not only be released on PS4, but is coming to Steam this summer through Early Access. Secret Ponchos is a multiplayer combat game that promises to blend the fast-paced excitement of arena combat with the finesse of a fighting game.

You'll play as an outlaw with a bounty on your head looking build a legacy for yourself by cashing in on other players' bounties. As you earn more of a reputation, you'll be able to spend it on new gear and clothes. You'll be fighting in one-on-one duels, gang fights, and free-for-all frenzies in local and online multiplayer matches.

For more info on Secret Ponchos, you can visit their website. Or if you're going to be at PAX East you can check it out there.

by: Sam - - Add a Comment

Supergiant Games announced today that their new game Transistor will be releasing on May 20th for PC and PlayStation 4. The follow up to Bastion, Transistor debuted at last year's PAX East and will be playable at this years PAX East to prepare for release. The action RPG stars a mysterious protagonist named Red who wields a strange and powerful sword. 

I haven't had a chance to play Transistor yet, but I'm looking forward to picking it up next month. If Bastion is any indication Supergiant knows how to make a good action RPG.

This week is all about pressure... on Microsoft that is! It’s a given that the new LEGO The Hobbit game will entertain fans of Tolken’s classic franchise and gamers alike, but how will both a new generation of the Kinect Sports franchise and a last-gen version of Titanfall fare with fans? I can speak from personal experience that Kinect Sports Rivals is an admirable addition to the franchise, despite some speedbumps along the way. AS for Titanfall, we shall have to wait and see...

Bruce Lee is in EA Sports UFC

by: John - - Add a Comment

Well this came out of nowhere. Bruce Lee, yes THE Bruce Lee, has been added as a fighter in EA Sports UFC

The legendary martial artist can be unlocked either by pre-ordering the game or finishing the career mode on pro difficulty or higher. With him unlocked, you can use him in the Flyweight, Bantamweight, Featherweight, and Lightweight divisions. 

It seems a little surreal seeing Bruce in the Octagon with UFC gloves on. Bruce's motto was to be like water, move fluidly. Jeet Kune Do, the style he invented, doesn't have a fix position and it's a lot about reacting to the opponent.

Now one has to wonder how he would have done in something like the UFC. His speed and power was legendary. It's too bad we'll never know.

Why isn't Starr Mazer a real thing? Somebody make it a real thing!

by: Randy - - Add a Comment

Starr Mazer is not a real game and that makes me sad and you should be sad, too. This video was put together by the snazzy folks at Imagos Films. This trailer—for a non-product—has some good bullet hell action, sure, but the cutscenes and point-and-click adventure elements really sew things together.

It was actually developed as an in-movie commercial for indie film maker Don Thacker's Motivational Growth. I would play the heck out of some Starr Mazer, though.

Alien: Isolation sounds really scary

by: Randy - - Add a Comment

If you don't think sound is a major (major!) component to horror games, then you shouldn't (should not!) be making horror games. But thank our lucky stars, The Creative Assembly knows. And they're putting that knowledge into Alien: Isolation. Authenticity is their drive, and access to the original audio recordings from the 1979 movie is a big contributor to that chase.

A full orchestra. Minor key tonalities. Boots stomping fruit husks. Good stuff.

Alien: Isolation will be making people pee their pants on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on October 7.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation DLC is out today

by: Nathaniel - - Add a Comment

Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation is out today and includes a ton of crazy stuff.  New maps, a new weapon, a new episode of Extinction, and the Predator are all included.

If that's not enough, NFL stars AJ Green and LeSean McCoy will go against one another to commemorate the release of Devastation.  

However, as a Cincinnati native, I think AJ Green should focus on being part of a football team that can win a playoff game before the heat death of the universe rather than publicly gaming, but I digress....

You can pick up Devastation for  $14.99 and it's also available as part of the CoD: Ghosts season pass.

For complete details, follow the jump.  You can learn more at www.activision.com, www.callofduty/ghosts.com, www.facebook.com/callofduty, and @InfinityWard

There were rumors that a Megalodon was hiding around in Battlefield 4. Well, it was a rumor til recently. With the release of Naval Strike DLC, the enormous shark is now a reality.

In the video below, you can see the giant shark come out of the water and lay waste to everyone in the water. It looks mighty impressive jumping out of the water. Now, we'll have to see if you can take out the Jaws wannabe.

Thanks Kotaku.

Alien: Isolation gets a release date

by: Sam - - Add a Comment

SEGA has officially announced the release date for their upcoming survival horror shooter Alien: Isolation. The game will be released globally for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 7th. The game's developer Creative Assembly wants the game to feel more like the Alien movies than previous games have, where the player actually fears the Xenomorphs rather than just constantly facing them in head to head combat.  

I avoided Aliens: Colonial Marines after hearing all of the negative press around that game, but I enjoy survival horror games from time to time. If there isn't much else out around the time Isolation releases maybe I will check it out.
