Shadows of the Damned Review Roundup

21 June 2011

Shadows of the Damned out now for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360

Here’s what reviewers are saying about our work on Grasshopper Manufacture’s Shadows of the Damned:

“This is Resident Evil 4 rewritten by a 12-year-old obsessed with d— jokes. As it turns out, that’s a good thing… Shadows of the Damned is unapologetically adolescent, but instead of trying to be cutely ironic and wink at players, the humor comes off as genuine, playful, and fun.”
Game Informer

“In short, Shadows of the Damned is insensitive, puerile, gross, incredibly profane and … kind of wonderful.”
Joystiq

“…the overall plot and impressively performed dialog is just so charmingly out-there that one cannot help laughing along… one of the funniest mindfucks this industry has to offer.”
Destructoid

4 June 2011

E3 is almost here! Join us for one last round of rumor-mongering and baseless speculation on what’ll go down at next week’s big event. Former 8-4 intern and Resident Evil superfan Alex “cvxfreak” Aniel joins us to talk about Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, Kojima Productions’ pre-E3 announcements, the merits (or lack thereof?) of calling your handheld “Vita,” and our very own E3 predictions.
