Feb

Granted, it's been 6 years since the final episode of Stargate SG-1 aired (and a staggering 16 years since the series premiered), but this franchise still seems to be trucking along. SG-1: Unleashed is being billed as an "interactive adventure," which is bad news for fans of non-interactivity. The game will be released "soon" for the App Store and Google Play, and features at least a few of the original actors from the show. Give the trailer a watch below.

Steam Wants More of Your Money, Introduces Week Long Deals

Feb

Continuing its unrelenting war against your wallet, Steam is adding week-long deals to the already ongoing daily and weekend deals (not to mention its seasonal money sinks). This week's deals include FlatOut, Steel Storm, Alpha Prime, and Karateka. This set lasts until Monday, when the next batch of weekly deals rolls out. At this point, I think Steam should just institute a subscription service wherein my entire salary is automatically wired to them.

Check Out the First Official Trailer for 'The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct'

Feb
07

The first official trailer for the upcoming Walking Dead shooter is here, and I've got to say, not that impressive. I understand that photo-real graphics aren't everything (I mean, take a look at what Telltale did), but man, this trailer just screams "unfinished." Hopefully, the gameplay will justify the dated look, but one has to consider that it's entering a world where Left 4 Dead 2 still exists, not to mention the stellar Walking Dead adventure games. In any case, give it a watch below, and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
