About Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes
Several years have passed since the events of No More Heroes 2... This time around, the setting is a small town in the middle of nowhere in the American South. Badman shows up at the trailer Travis has been living in to exact revenge for the murder of his daughter, “Bad Girl” – and things go horribly wrong. As they battle it out, the two are sucked into the game world of the legendary game console, the “Death Drive Mk-Ⅱ”.

Developed by Dr. Juvenile, the Death Drive Mk-Ⅱ has six games contained on “Death Balls”. It’s said that collecting all six and then beating each game allows the player to have one wish granted. Travis and Badman team up to seek out the Death Balls in order to bring Bad Girl back to life.

Epic MMO Boundless launches its first major update


The holidays are over but developers Wonderstruck have been working hard to provide a new year’s treat. The first major update for subscription-free MMO Boundless has now gone live! It introduces a new Guild system to the game, so meet up with your friends online (remember this can be played across both PC and PS4) and head in-game for a winter wonderland surprise.

Wonderstuck have been working hard to bring bi-weekly updates out since launch in September this year and are now pleased to announce the first major update, Empires.

Wonderstruck are showing no sign of slowing down either - the publicly-announced roadmap for Boundless includes game-expanding features such as farming, alongside content drops such as the Hunter creature, a vicious new addition to the food chain. The team have just released the much-anticipated 'LED' blocks, which will enable players to incorporate simple animations to their builds. With even more huge features yet to be announced, launch really was just the beginning for Boundless. The Empires update will introduce Guilds, enabling players in-game to organise settlements and resources much more effectively, grant various buffs to members, and improve the process of collaborative building.


Heavy Metal Machines gets vacation event that rewards gamers in “casual mode”



January 15, 2018 - Vacations are a time to kick back and relax, even in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Heavy Metal Machines. The free-to-play car combat MOBA with a rock n' roll attitude is starting today it's HMM 2019 Kick-off event, that rewards an exclusive "2019" celebratory theme portrait to players that complete matches in it's Casual Mode. So start your engines and… relax for a bit.

To get the avatar portrait, players need only to complete 20 games on Casual Match mode, rather than the popular Custom Game mode. Casual Mode is open to players of all skill sets, bringing a greater level of interaction between veterans and newcomers.

It is not necessary to win, they just need to finish the matches either alone or with friends. But don't chill out too much! As players can't be AFK (away from keyboard), otherwise the match won't be counted. Players will be given 13 "vacation time" to complete the event and get their avatars.

Narrated by Larry Huffman, of Rock 'n Roll Racing fame, the game pits two teams controlling heavily armed characters in deadly arenas, as they race to pick up a bomb and use it to score and destroy the opponent's base.

More information about Heavy Metal Machines can be found on the official website.
