Reader Andrew McMurry sends us this short little video he made, in which he jumps head-first into a Metal Slug level and proceeds to shoot, slash and explode his way through legions of bad guys. All in the name of your entertainment.
First announced three years ago, Ubisoft's I Am Alive has barely been seen or heard of since. It's widely assumed to have been canned (or at least be in a very deep sleep), but if you feel like checking out what it looks like (or once looked like) anyway, here's a brief look.
Now that EVO 2011—the world's biggest and best fighting game tournament—has come to a close, it's time to look back at the best moments. Many of which have been thoughtfully compiled into this lovely video.
Glu Mobile has a game on the iPhone called Gun Bros. It's an arcade shooter, I've played it, it's pretty fun. It's also, sadly, one of a litany of games that are free to download then gimped so you have to pay/play for weeks for the upgrades necessary to advance.

Dropped on a mysterious, ice-covered Siberian island, Call of the Dead has players control a dream-team of zombie killers as they fight to survive an army of the Soviet undead led by the set-light wielding reanimated corpse of George Romero.
The folks behind Resistance and Ratchet & Clank may be best known for their inventive, sometimes kooky weapons, but Insomniac Games are also developing new ways of turning bodies into lifeless piles of meat.

Call of Duty: Black Ops' four newest maps add a healthy mix of new places to run and gun, hide and shoot, play and kill. Here's a first-hand play-through.
What if we didn't have to rely on our own bad judgment to make clinch decisions about what to do on a date?
LittleBigPlanet 2 for the PlayStation 3 is a fantastic little toolbox, capable of creating video games of all shapes, sizes and genres. We've seen plenty of game recreations in LittleBigPlanet, but this Legend of Zelda aims for strict accuracy.
