A Marcus Fenix if you will. Who was the main protagonist in the first three Gears of War games. The ones where, the, err, aliens attacked earth? As much as we love Gears of War, we can't really pinpoint any specific story beats from the series. Which isn't a knock against the franchise, it's just that we kind of love Gears of War for the co-op action it provides. And the over the top characters. Which this new gameplay video showcases plenty of.
Humble Bundle has teamed up with 2K to once again to offer up a slew of its games for the low low price of 'extremely cheap and affordable'. $1 nabs you a copy of The Darkness II, Spec Ops: The Line, and Duke Nukem Forever.

With PlayStation VR support for a new mission called 'Blood Ties'.

Confession time! One of the very first digital games I purchased for the Xbox 360 was Uno, and I played it online against other people pretty much every day for months. This was back when the Xbox 360 had its infamous 'blades' interface. An avatar-powered version of the game came out a couple of years later, but by then I was probably playing something else. Let's say Team Fortress 2. For some much needed street cred. Which kind of makes today's news that Uno for PS4, Xbox One and PC coming on August 9 somewhat exciting.
One of the early Kickstarter success stories, Obduction raised over $1.3 million in late 2013. Mainly because it was the spiritual successor to '90s CD-ROM phenom Myst. Arguably the first game to be embraced by audiences of all ages and backgrounds. And now after a few delays the proposed July 26 release date for Obduction has been pushed back a month to the week of August 22. In order to add that final coat of polish.
The first bit of proper DLC for the excellent Total War: Warhammer introduces a new playable race, the Beastmen. Part men, part err, beast. The new horde-like race features a very different play-style to experience as highlighted in a new grand campaign walkthrough from Creative Assembly. Similar in style to Chaos, playing as the Beastmen means razing cities and causing grief to pesky humies.
After last weeks reveal, and availability in the Public Test Realm (PTR), Ana Amari has finally made her way onto PC as part of the latest Overwatch patch. Ana is a new support character that carries a special Biotic Rifle that can both heal allies and harm her enemies. Also included in the patch are changes to characters D.Va, Zenyatta, and more.
And it looks pretty good, and just about what you'd expect from Telltale. Although there's a lot to take in, the trailer is wise to keep a lot of the story elements a mystery. What we do get though is the sense that the game will feature a lot of Bruce Wayne. And a lot of Batman. And plenty of other stuff too. Including some surprise cameos. Episode 1: 'Realm of Shadows' is out August 2!
Which is the sort of headline that you don't really expect to be writing when you wake up in the morning. So yeah, Gary Busey of Point Break, Lethal Weapon, Predator 2, and Under Siege fame is the next Elusive Target in Hitman starting on Friday as part of a new mission The Wildcard. Why Gary Busey? Well, he was available and the Wildcard target was all based around a vote between two Garys. Gary Busey and Gary Cole.
