That Guy From Gamecock Is Also The Star of This Stoner Comedy

Mike Wilson, he of Ion Storm, Gamecock, Gathering of Developers and Devolver Digital video game company founding fame, is also the star and producer of Austin High, a "goofball stoner comedy" that has nothing to do with video games (I think) and everything to do with joints and bongs and slackerdom. » 10/10/11 8:00pm 10/10/11 8:00pm

Gamecock Resurrected As Devolver Digital?

Today's announcement of Serious Sam: The First Encounter HD for Xbox Live Arcade had a hidden bonus announcement buried within, the existence of Devolver Digital. That's the new production company from the founders of the extinct Gamecock and G.O.D. » 6/25/09 6:20pm 6/25/09 6:20pm

"Young" Velvet Assassin Trailer Feels Old, Sounds Awful

If you watch the new extended trailer for Velvet Assassin and feel a strange sense of deja-vu, there's a reason for that. Sadly, that reason doesn't make the trailer any better. » 4/06/09 11:30pm 4/06/09 11:30pm

Velvet Assassin Trailer Evokes Disturbing Mental Picture


What was presumably meant to be a sexy and inspiring trailer for Replay Studio's Velvet Assassin instead manages to bring to mind the disturbing image of Sir Winston Churchill in a bloody nightie. » 3/16/09 11:20am 3/16/09 11:20am

Velvet Assassin – Morphine Makes Everything Better, Seriously

There were several things that stayed with me long after I’d put down Velvet Assassin – the most vivid of which was the morphine. In this World War II stealth-action game, morphine acts sort of as bullet-time; when you botch a sneaking mission and your character Violette gets shot at, you can inject yourself with a… » 10/22/08 2:00am 10/22/08 2:00am

SouthPeak Devours Gamecock

Whoa, I didn't even know SouthPeak Interactive swung that way, but apparently they've been Gamecock-hungry for quite some time and aren't too proud to pay for it. SouthPeak today announces that they have acquired wild-and-crazy Gamecock Media Group. 'Cock head Mike Wilson swells with excitement.

Tons of New Mushroom Men Screens

The whole Mushroom Men concept is one bizarre creation from Gamecock. The thing is that you can't help but stare at the beauty of it. There's something really intriguing about helping a lone fungi find his place in society. We have screens from Spore Wars (Wii) and Rise of the Fungi (DS) after the jump. » 10/02/08 4:00pm 10/02/08 4:00pm

Velvet Assassin Slinks Back To 2009

European gamers who fancied some 1940s stealth gaming in Velvet Assassin will have to wait until the new year. Replay has pushed back the game's European release to early 2009.

Pirates Vs. Ninja Dodgeball Coming To Wii

I always knew the age-old conflict between pirates and ninja was too large to be contained by one console.

Legendary Hands On - Epic Moments

My first real "wow" moment at the Games Convention in Leipzig came when a griffin threw a taxi at me. Mind you it could have been a roc – I'm not exactly up to date on my mythical birds, but whatever it was it was impressive. It was exactly the sort of epic moment you'd expect from a game called Legendary, and after… » 8/26/08 1:00pm 8/26/08 1:00pm

Wars are Won in the Shadows, New Velvet Assassin Trailer

Click to view » 8/25/08 1:00pm 8/25/08 1:00pm Along side Mushroom Men, Gamecock is also publishing Velvet Assassin which looks utterly bad ass. I am going with I hope they get this stealth gameplay right. An Assassin game set in WWII, count me in! The game will be hitting Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

A Uniquely Bizarre New Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi Trailer

Click to view » 8/25/08 12:00pm 8/25/08 12:00pm While Gamecock's Mushroom Men looks weird as hell I am very intrigued by the idea of controlling a Kung Fu trained piece of fungus. I mean think about it, what is stranger than using fungi to karate chop other fungi all in a bunch of mushroom nations? I'm getting hungry just talking about this. The game…

Velvet Assassin Trailer Has Two Appealing Things

Those two things would be tight pants and Nazi killing. Looks like Replay Studios, by way of Gamecock, will be serving up both in spades, as crouch-walking and fence-scaling are ideal activities for maximizing the exposure of a caboose in taut leather.
