We've already explained in great length what makes Respawn Entertainment's upcoming shooter Titanfall so special. The unique blend of mech-versus-infantry-versus-AI combat has been delicately balanced to create an experience that's unlike other multiplayer games on the market. Playing a few matches from the upcoming beta has only further cemented the notion that yes, this game is going to be something special. But perhaps words are hard to read. Instead of simply repeating ourselves, we thought it'd be best to show you. We've cut together a six minute video that gives you an abridged look at "Attrition," one of the game modes that will be available in the beta come Valentine's Day.

Kinect Sports Rivals was originally meant to be a launch game for Xbox One--one of the few games designed to take full advantage of the mandatory Kinect sensor included with Microsoft's next-gen system. Obviously, that didn't happen. The compilation will include new motion games, including climbing, wake racing, target shooting, soccer, tennis, and bowling. And it'll be available on April 8.

Delsin Rowe has quite the legacy to live up to in Infamous: Second Son. His predecessor, Cole MacGrath, left a lasting impression on PS3 owners over the course of multiple games. The new frontman of the Infamous franchise does have a lot going for him, though. Developer Sucker Punch has given him a vast sandbox to explore, a new anti-Conduit threat to deal with, and a brand new slew of powers to master. Of course, it wouldn't be an Infamous game if there wasn't a morality scale in place. Just like Cole before him, Delsin will have his own choices to make that will either shape him into a Conduit savior or an unrepentant killer. Shacknews was given the opportunity to briefly step into both roles at a special PlayStation event earlier this week.

If the world needed saving, which hero would you call: Conan, Indiana Jones, John McClane, Machete, Robocop, Rambo, or perhaps the Terminator? Well, why not all of them? That's the idea behind Broforce, a 2D shooty platformer with a cast including Bro Dredd, MacBrover, B. A. Broracus, and other bro-ised action heroes. Devolver Digital has announced it'll publish the game, and confirmed the once-dreamed console release will be a reality.

Now that Rust is a zombie-less world, humans will have to survive based on their own skills and instincts.
