At PAX East 2014, Nick and Krispy were fortunate enough to get some time with Klei Entertainment to try out Invisible, Inc.

Last January, I wrote an article about Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes concerned that the “dark content” we had been promised wouldn’t be handled in a mature manner, or would be shock value for the sake of shock value. Upon the game’s release, I reviewed it and ...

We talk more in depth about South Park: The Stick of Truth and Dark Souls 2 this week but expect more in the weeks to come. In a rather shocking turn of events, Jack Tretton has stepped down within SCEA which has us all speculating and Amy Hennig’s departure ...

It was only a matter of time before we talked about the insanity that is Rust. There's nothing quite like running naked through a field with nothing but a rock to protect you from the elements... and dudes with Kevlar vests. We also talk at length about Bravely Detault ...
It's Octodad week! Brad shares his thoughts on this goofy indie title in preparation for New Release Tuesday.

There is potentially troubling news (depending on how you look at it) regarding the forthcoming release ...

I have to emphasize the "almost" here, but it's still worth watching this incredibly slick launch trailer. Gorgeous CG visuals, great music, and a narrative which appears to have been unfolding over the course of the game's trailers! There's so much clever going on here that you ...
Here at 4Player we know you guys like to come for the laughs and we try to provide.  However, it can be a bit difficult to find certain clips from our live stream so, to that end, I'm going to start doing Highlights of the Month, a compilation of ...
SUBSCRIBERS!!! Are you not entertained!?!?!?!?  Subscriber Night was fantastic on Monday. We didn't get responses from all of our Subscribers so the first few hours we did a semi Open Game Night. The night started out with a lonely Brad playing Urban Chaos: Riot Response (Xbox), a classic 4Player ...
I’ve been growing more and more optimistic about the new Alien game (Alien Isolation) from The Creative Assembly as the team lets bits of information trickle out. A few weeks ago, Sega confirmed that the game would be hitting all major consoles and PC on October 7th. This date ...
Final Fantasy XIII has had more than it’s fair share of criticism over the years. The game was longfully awaited as the first “next-gen” title in the series but was met with mixed reactions from both critics and fans alike when it debuted in 2009. I personally forced my ...
Review: Titanfall

Posted by Chris Davis on March 23rd, 2014 ( 3 COMMENTS )

I don’t think there is anyone in the world that can reasonably argue that Call of Duty isn’t the biggest shooter franchise on the market right now.  Its solid foundation of twitch-based combat, powerful killstreak rewards and variety of weapons makes a go-to series for competitive FPS players ...
Snake is back. Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes was the first part announced in the two-part storyline that, together, makes up Metal Gear Solid V. With Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain a significant distance away, Konami and Kojima Productions decided to release this slice of the full package ...
Stoic's The Banner Saga is a beautiful and atmospheric game with a powerful soundtrack. The world sets up an emotional story with incredibly high stakes, where every decision feels supremely important. The Oregon Trail-like meta structure forces the player to make tense choices at every turn. And the ...
Review: Thief

Posted by Zack Wheat on March 8th, 2014 ( 4 COMMENTS )

What a long, strange trip it has been for the fourth game in the Thief franchise. After years of a confused, tumultuous development, this sort-of reboot is finally on store shelves. With new ideas and a new developer come new challenges and successes, but the industry has changed quite a ...
I can still feel my heart pounding from this episode. Wow. The latest episode in Telltale's The Walking Dead series has finally released and it was worth the wait. “All That Remains” had improved upon the UI and adventure game elements of the previous season, but was poorly executed ...
In 2012, Telltale Games released a game that would become one of the most beloved titles of this generation. Telltale surprised most of the gaming industry with their dark, emotional, and character driven take on the zombie apocalypse based on the graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman. The first episode ...
Review: Battlefield 4

Posted by Chris Davis on December 13th, 2013 ( 4 COMMENTS )

With the Fall release season comes our annual allotment of modern military shooters trying to thrill us with rollercoaster singleplayer campaigns and multiplayer suites with tons of DLC on the way.  And, like any Fall season, it’s the usual suspects.  Activision’s multi-studio, cyclical juggernaut series continued its annual ...
Review: Peggle 2

Posted by Jeffrey Demelo on December 9th, 2013 ( 3 COMMENTS )

The ‘casual game’ that even ‘core’ gamers love, is BACK! For those familiar with the joy of Pop Cap’s Pachinko-like puzzle game: read this while it’s in the download queue. Truth is, Peggle 2 is simply more Peggle, but better than it has ever been. No surprise, really ...
Game: Contrast Developer: Compulsion Games Platforms: PS4 / PS3 / Xbox 360 / PC Release Date: November 15, 2013 Contrast has had my attention since I first set eyes on it at PAX East 2013. It is a game that at first glance, appeared to exemplify the great things about the Indie game ...
Zack takes a look at Sony's biggest launch title for the Playstation 4, Killzone: Shadow Fall.
Krispy gives us his expert opinion on the latest entry in the Batman Arkham franchise from WB Games Montreal. What did you think of Batman: Arkham Origins?

Nick gives us his take on the sequel to the indie horror darling Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
Review: Outlast

Posted by Nick Henderson on September 8th, 2013 ( 8 COMMENTS )

True survival horror is somewhat of a rarity these days. Games like Resident Evil continue to abandon the genre entirely in hopes of achieving more mainstream success while games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent remind us that this genre is still relevant and open to innovation. Red Barrels, a new ...
