Evolve screenshots show a menagerie of monsters

What is it with aliens and weird mouths? You can probably tell a lot about the potential aggression of an unknown species by the size and shape of their maw. In this new set of screenshots for 4-player co-op shooter Evolve, there are some classic examples of Danger Mouth: from the weird glowing tentacle faces, to the multi-pronged jaw claws. All the better to eat you with.

Mass Effect 3 trailer pits Reaper vs. giant worm thing

There's one thing that the Reapers didn't count on: giant indigenous sand worms. The big evil alien race that's threatening to overwhelm the galaxy will be very familiar with Shepard after the end of the second game, but the big evil baddies have never read Frank Herbert's Dune. Perhaps that is the weakness the allied races will use to defeat the Reaper threat. It looks like the third game will have set pieces on a scale that could rival the spectacular final acts of the first two games. Roll on March 6 2012.

Borderlands 2 trailer details GameStop pre-order bonuses, gladiatorial beast combat

Borderlands 2's playground world of Pandora teems with monsters, bandits, psychos, burning psychos, cowardly robots, and the ever-ubiquitous loot, but what if a special retreat existed for the wayward warrior to take a break, dust off his or her feet, and plug a few (thousand) bullets into the slavering maws of bloodthirsty beasts?

You can't escape Doom.

No pressure or anything.

And in other PC gaming news...

We've all heard about how Mass Effect is trying to be Star Wars, or Star Trek, or just about every other classic sci-fi universe you've ever heard of, but now it seems it's aiming for a new homage. If this reaper vs thresher-maw fight is anything to go by Mass Effect 3 is going to be... Dune! Yep, I take this trailer as conclusive proof that Shepard will actually spend most of ME3 as a desert nomad, trading in mysterious spices and killing people by shouting his name really loud, at least until the inevitable sandworm assault in the final act. He who controls the PC gaming news controls the universe. I've placed mine inside.

Orion: Dino Horde stampedes onto Steam April 15 with new competitive multiplayer mode

The next great challenge for the industry might be turning the PC into a bastion of shooting ancient dinosaurs in the maw with plenty of bullets and perhaps a rocket or two. The latest game vying to fill that gap is Orion: Dino Horde, a more robust followup to Spiral's shakily launched Dino Beatdown co-op shooter from last year. Along with continuing the same mode of class-based co-op against waves of scaly assailants, Dino Horde also brings 5 vs. 5 competitive matches with one team channeling their inner Skorpiovenator.

Chaos Reborn gets photo-finish funding and multi-language translations

Scary thought: We almost lived in a world where a tactical wizard-on-wizard RPG from the creator of X-COM would never have been. Julian Gollop's Chaos RebornKickstarter campaign teetered between nabbing the public's monetary thumbs-up or the eldritch maw of oblivion as it entered its final week of funding earlier this month, with Gollop himself tweeting the "nail-biting conclusion" of the drive's dwindling hours. At the 34-hour mark, the campaign's Summon Moneydollars spell finally reached the $180,000 goal, climbing over $210,000 in funding by the timer's end.

But what about the mobs you'll face throughout the area on your own?

First look at Rift's newest raid, stuffed with pirate ships and dragons made of gold

As you read this, all of Telara's most powerful defenders are busying themselves stomping on balloons and throwing plastic rings at tiny seacaps scuttling inside a fence. The Carnival of the Ascensed is a fun, whimsical event celebrating the game's first anniversary--but it's about to come to a screeching halt, replaced with fire and brimstone as patch 1.8 introduces the next large-scale raid, the Infernal Dawn.

League of Legends' AI bots multiply, get smarter, and move to Dominion [Hands-on]

I ran out of my spawn area on League of Legends' Dominion map and made a move for the nearest capture-point, which an enemy Sona was stealing from us. I was confident I could take the flimsy healer and reclaim our home point, but before I can get in range, a burst of flames erupts around me and burning-man Brand bursts from the bushes. He's now pacing side-to-side between me and Sona, tossing out flames if I get close, but stubbornly refusing to let me drag him off point, where I could safely kill him. Now, Brand running interference on a point in Dominion isn't that unusual—but this Brand is a bot, and he's ruining my day, courtesy of the improved AI and bot rosters being added to League of Legends in the next few weeks.

A tour through the Smithsonian's The Art of Video Games exhibit

It's an argument that's been beaten to death over the past decade: are video games truly art? The debate might've finally been settled, now that gaming has a place in one of the nation's most distinguished museums. The Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C. recently unveiled The Art of Video Games exhibit, showcasing 40 years of our favorite pastime's evolution. We decided to drop by, see what all the hubbub was about, and, more importantly, make sure the PC gaming classics made it in.

Saturday Crapshoot: Monty Python

Every week, Richard Cobbett rolls the dice to bring you an obscure slice of gaming history, from lost gems to weapons grade atrocities. This week... wait for it... wait for it... It's... If a man's worth can be judged on how many drunken students and parents have repeated their material, the Monty Python team is rich indeed. They've not done too badly in terms of more mundane success either. From the Spanish Inquisition to the Dead Parrot, to the cinematic masterpiece that was Life of Brian, there's no sense pretending you don't know who they are. (Though if you don't, you'd probably best avoid sitting down with a notepad for that upcoming Holy Flying Circus thing...) But did you know there have been Monty Python games? Five of them to be exact, four on PC. How do you turn the anarchic surrealism of a sketch where anything can happen, but will probably get forgotten due to not being about Vikings singing about spam, into a game? Let's find out...
