All Articles: The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut

Modern Warfare 3, BioShock, House of the Dead Overkill, more added to PS Store

After a few ridiculously game-heavy weeks, Sony is dialing it back a bit with this yesterday’s PlayStation Store update. The PS3 Full Games section is the highlight of the week including the underwater adventure of BioShock, the modern warfare of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and the grindhouse horror of The House of The Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut.

Also available this week is the PSN/Vita game Zen Pinball 2. The base game is available to download for free, and 12 additional tables can be purchased including several featuring The Avengers.

Finally this week, Battlefield 3 Premium subscribers will be able to download the Armored Kill expansion for free, a week before it’s available to the general public (for $14.99).

New Releases: Battlefield 3, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land, Pokemon Rumble Blast, More

The war begins this week as DICE’s Battlefield 3 will be published by EA on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will have two weeks by itself on store shelves before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 returns fire on November 8. Have you chosen a side yet?

Also available this week is a Kirby game that we all thought was cancelled back in the GameCube days, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land. It’ll be available on the Wii this week, and yes, that’s Kirby wearing a Link hat and wielding a sword that looks suspiciously like the Master Sword. Nintendo will also unleash the melee-battling of Pokemon Rumble Blast on the 3DS.

A ton of smaller games will also make it onto store shelves this week including Namco Bandai’s Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi (PS3, Xbox 360), Sega’s The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut (PS3), Disney’s Disney Universe (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360), Atlus’s The Cursed Crusade (PS3, Xbox 360) and Telltale’s Back to the Future (PS3, Wii).

Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)

Celebrate the weekend with a new House of the Dead: Overkill trailer

The weekend is upon us, so its the perfect time to hunker down and enjoy a new trailer for The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut. Why is this the perfect time? Because this trailer for the vulgar light gun game is most definitely NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut will be available exclusively for the PS3 on October 25.

Hungry for more brains? Here’s a new House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut trailer

Not only does House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut have a hoard of subtitles, it also has more zombies than you can pistol whip. This HD remake, out October 25, features even more of your favorite zombie-dismembering operatives, Agent G and smart-mouthed Detective Washington. They’re back in two additional levels, so Washington definitely has some unfinished swearing to do.

Sega has plenty of other new features planned including an exclusive crossbow weapon, a new “baby mutant” enemy type, a Hardcore Mode (mutants can only be killed with headshots) and improved boss fights in all levels.

Who smells zombie brains? I do!

Sonic leads Sega’s E3 lineup… again

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It’s a popular phrase that goes back almost 200 years and Sega has certainly adopted it in their crusade to create another great Sonic the Hedgehog game on a console. The publisher will try again this year as Sonic Generations (3DS, PS3, Xbox 360) leads their E3 lineup. Sega is so sure they’ve got it right this time that they’re even giving the public a sneak peek at the game at the Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 8 at 6 PM (Pacific Time).

The remainder of Sega’s lineup is pretty diverse and seems to have a little bit of something for everyone:

  • The long-gestating squad-based shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines
  • Platinum Games’ latest brawler, Anarchy Reigns
  • The Terminator-esque Binary Domain
  • Movie-to-game adaptation Captain America: Super Soldier
  • The reborn puzzler Crush 3D
  • The XBLA debut of Treasure’s Guardian Heroes
  • The brilliant light gun shooter House of the Dead: Overkill, on the PS3 for the first time.
  • Downloadable action title Renegade Ops
  • The first M-rated Kinect game, Rise of Nightmares
  • The rally racer Sega Rally Online Arcade, which is available now
  • And Shinobi emerging from the shadows on the 3DS

Sega also has a few surprises in store for the E3 Expo as they’ve promised “more than 13 new games across all major platforms,” but they only listed 12 games. Considering the company’s close relationship with Nintendo, I’d bet good money that we’ll get a Wii 2 announcement or two.

More information on Sega’a announced E3 slate can be found after the break. (more…)

House of the Dead: Overkill gets extended on PS3

Holy ****! Agent G and Detective Isaac Washington bring their grindhouse antics to the PS3 for the first time in The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut. And just for ***** and giggles, the pair plans to add Move support, two exclusive levels, high definition graphics and eye-popping 3D gameplay.

Thankfully, all of the ****ing naughty language (which there was a lot of) and bullets (which there was more of) return as well.

“The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut on PlayStation 3 will send players to the shrieking mad heart of mutant mayhem. This time we went further, faster and bloodier than before. We extended everything, even the title,” said Gary Knight of Sega.

The House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut will be released on October 25, just in time for Halloween. But Sega won’t make us wait that long to learn more as the game will be shown at E3. You can also get an eyeful of the first four screenshots after the break. (more…)
