Hey big mechs, what'cha doing over there on Xbox Live Arcade? It's so green over there. We have a party waiting for you, and your friends Psychonauts, Stacking, and Costume Quest are all here! Oh good, you're coming: Double Fine has announced (opens in new tab) that Iron Brigade (formerly known as Trenched) will be available on Steam next week, on August 13.

The once XBLA-exclusive is a hybrid tower defense/third-person shooter which takes place in an alternate reality version of World War I. The PC version will also include the DLC, Rise of the Martian Bear. Martian bears? Terrifying -- let's hope NASA's Curiosity continues to find rocks.

He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
