Dead Horde – Preview
Posted by James Livett on under Gaming, Reviews
Dead Horde is a title that's coming not so much shuffling as sprinting towards us. Moving away from the classic rigor mortis zombie and back to the modern fascination with 'infected.' On the face of it my initial impression was that Dead Horde is a blend of Left 4 Dead and Alien Swarm, i.e., a top down shooter where you need to reach a checkpoint while killing fast zombies trying to claw and b... more.

The video shows Dan DiDio, Jim Lee, Grant Morrison, and others talking about how big a deal this whole thing is. There's really no new art shown off in the trailer as everything is from the covers that have already been released. Jim Lee does do a quick Batman sketch, which is always co... more.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon Review
Posted by Jeremy Conrad on under News, Reviews
The third time is definitely the charm for the Transformers series. Dark of the Moon is not only the best of the three Michael Bay Transformers movies, but it's a grand apology for the disastrous second movie, and a great way to spend $12 in the middle of the summer. As you expect from a Michael Bay movie, that $12 won't get you strong characters or world-class acting, but it'll give you one of th... more.
