Nothing cool lasts forever. When Shogo ($2.99 on GOG) first landed in 1998, it was in a world where anime was finally making a splash in the West. The likes of Ghost in the Shelland Neon Genesis Evangelion were becoming geek household names, making it not just acceptable but (almost) cool to watch cartoons full of blood and nudity, with episode names like “GIVE UP! But Just Before We Do, The Sure Kill Sword Appears!”
The multiplayer portion of Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines seeks to offer a good time for both the Marines, who should learn to avoid dank, dimly lit facilities, and the Aliens, who very much enjoy hunting down and eviscerating those Marines. Today, publisher Sega announced a new mode called Escape. Just like it sounds, Escape challenges Marine players to an extraction point sprint as the Xenomorphs chomp at their heels with their acid-drooling mouth-in-mouth jaw things.
Gotham City Impostors' armed-to-the-teeth cast of Bruce Wayne wannabes may look sloppy and ragtag, but it's all subterfuge. Zany vigilante justice takes hard work, so Monolith's opted to delay the game into February to make sure every last hair is meticulously out of place. Currently, the developer isn't offering any further whens, whys, or wherefores, but I've requested details with emails and gravily bellows of "WHERE IS HE?" I feel like they might not be getting the message, though. Maybe I should try my Bane impression.
Warner Bros and Monolith Productions have announced Gotham City Impostors - an upcoming first-person shooter where you play as your own character in either "The Bats" or "The Jokerz" tribute gangs.
All sounds a bit "I'm not wearing hockey pads" to us.
