Terrifying Soldiers Look Like Comic Book Villains

Ballistic facemasks aren't new. We've seen them in movies, comic books, video games like Army of Two. And we've seen them in real life, where they are utterly intimidating. » 10/21/13 4:00am 10/21/13 4:00am

Intense Action and Stale Design Characterize Army of Two: The Devil's…

Army of Two was all about bromantic frolics through blood-spattered, limb-strewn locales. So was the sequel, The 40th Day. And so is the newest sequel, The Devil's Cartel. For some people, that just doesn't cut it anymore. » 4/02/13 4:00pm 4/02/13 4:00pm

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel: The Kotaku Review

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel drifts in a Lagrangian point of video game mediocrity. No force pulls it toward being a contemptible or even bad effort, but nothing budges it into the orbit of entertainment, even as a guilty pleasure, either. » 4/01/13 5:23pm 4/01/13 5:23pm

Is Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel The Most 'Bro' Game Ever?

In terms of 'bro' games, I’d thought I’d seen it all. I thought gaming had hit peak bro: the point at which bros could bro no further. I thought we’d fist-bumped, roadie ran and keg-stood our way to humanity's limit. Well, I was wrong.

Somehow, the New Army of Two Game Seems More Bro-Dacious than Ever

Nowadays, it seems like all sorts of beefed-up characters in shooter games can sling taunts and emotes. But back in 2008, Army of Two won a crucial bros'-rights battle when the two leads-whose names, c'mon, no one even remembers-were able to express their bro-love for each other in a series of team-based mechanics.… » 11/02/12 2:30pm 11/02/12 2:30pm

At Least The New Army of Two Has a Decent Trailer

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel might be the most unnecessary sequel of this console generation. Who asked for this? Did you? You? What about you? It sure as hell wasn't me. » 8/24/12 3:00am 8/24/12 3:00am

The Devil’s Cartel Gives the Army of Two Franchise a Leg Up

Army of Two is a polarizing franchise. It had the one thing the original developer EA Montreal set out to create: exceptional cooperative gameplay. Everything else, with the exception of the over-the-top bromance comedy between the two private military contractors, fell to the wayside. Now with Dead Space developer… » 8/17/12 2:00pm 8/17/12 2:00pm

Army of Two's Sequel Is Not Army of Three

Army of Two is a 2008 co-op third-person shooter that allowed one player to control one of the mercenaries, while the other player controlled the second. A sequel followed—Army of Two: The 40th Day—in 2010, and it was more of the same. The next game could be different. » 12/01/11 4:00am 12/01/11 4:00am

This Week In Comics

I recently read about a big change scheduled for a Superman comic. Superman won't be in it. Lex Luthor will star. That raises a question you could ask for any medium: Can villains be the stars and still be villains? » 5/28/10 9:00pm 5/28/10 9:00pm

This Week In Comics

Two new gaming comics this week, one non-gaming comic for you to consider. The non-gaming comic is probably not a classic. It is not created by an all-star cast. No, it merely has an amazing title: Executive Assistant Iris. » 3/17/10 4:00pm 3/17/10 4:00pm
