You may not have heard of Electronic Arts, a boutique publishing label based in Redwood City, Calif. Well, I bet you will be raving about them once you pick up the "EA Indie Bundle" on Steam, the indie-friendly digital marketplace, unlike that Origin bullshit run by that place that screwed up the end of Mass Effect 3.
Well this is some creative marketing. Head on over to markoftheninja.com to play through a ninja-centric text adventure game. It's called "Mark of the Ninja," and it's brought to you by Klei Entertainment, makers of Shank.
This launch trailer for Shank 2 is a spectacle of gore and cartoony style. One of the sequel's additions to the original downloadable game is Survival Mode, which you can get your bloodthirsty eyeballs on right here. Both there and in the game's single-player, rest assured that yes, you will feel like Rambo (and…
This week, there's a good amount of solid stuff new at the PlayStation store; it ain't the horn of plenty that we've seen in the past, but it's certainly better than the cursed wasteland that was last week's PlayStation Store update.
The sequel to Klei Entertainment's cartoony stab-em-up brings me something that I desperately wanted from the first Shank: a frantic 2D twist to the waves-of-enemies gameplay popularized by Gears of War's Horde Mode. The nuts-and-bolts of Shank 2's Survival Mode get laid out in the clip above, which looks a lot…
Klei Entertainment's sequel to the stylish stab-em-up I—and many others—loved is scheduled for an early 2012 release. The clip above shows off new enemies and moves but the game still looks like the bloodiest Saturday morning cartoon never made.
We've seen our share of Humble Indie Bundles over the past year or two—independent developers who gather under the "Humble" brand and release a bunch of their games priced at whatever people want to pay.
Klei Entertainment's upcoming Shank 2 brings a new brand of extreme slice-em-up to the stage with its co-op gameplay. We've already seen some of it in action off-screen, and it certainly looks like a lot of team-stabbin'.
Inspired as it is by 1980s action-movie tropes, you can probably guess the plot of Shank 2's story mode. If your guess involves the hero renouncing his violent ways and trying to embrace a quieter existence, only to have his old life come back to wreak havoc in his new one, then you get a prize.
Released through the EA Partners program last year, Klei Entertainment's gorgeously gory sidescroller won legions of fans with its retro presentation and fluid animation. The one thing everybody wanted was co-operative play featuring the bandanaed badass and his cohort Falcone. Your pleas were heard and the video…
"We literally put our mortgages to it...It was a big deal. It needed to be good."
Last year's side-scrolling slice 'em up Shank is getting a sequel, EA and Klei Entertainment announced today. They're calling it Shank 2 and it's coming to PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and PC early next year.
Endless streams of tough guys. One after another. I pull out my blades, switch to a chainsaw and then start shooting. Shank isn't a beat 'em up. It's a slice 'em, shoot 'em, pummel 'em up.
Shank, the side-scrolling beat-and-slash-em-up out this week, runs like a dream on the PS3 but is having some stuttering issues with its cinematics on the Xbox 360. The game's developer says older models of that console are the problem.
Shoot, slice and strangle 'em up Shank is coming to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this August, a gory stabfest that you can share with a buddy, as seen in this co-op video preview of the game.
Klei Entertainment's side-scrolling action game Shank will hit the PlayStation Network on August 24 for $14.99, with an Xbox Live Arcade release on August 25, priced at 1200 Microsoft points. Are you ready to get Shanked?

First I shanked the guy, then I shot him, then I stuffed a grenade down his throat and punched him in the face, then it exploded, and then he died.
It was recently announced that God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk will be lending her talents to the upcoming game Shank.
I thought the God of War games were above-average in the video game narrative department and Shank looks like a well-done update to one of my favorite games, Metal Slug. However, instead of…
