I am a warlock who later gets to look like a Sha, so I might be a tad biased about all the shadowy energy going on in the Dread Wastes, but it's a fun place to do dailies. I love the dailies here since your questing in the zone helps you later do your dailies with the Klaxxi. Then after you've do...

Publisher Nordic Games and developer The Farm 51 are remaking the original Painkiller game (by People Can Fly) as Painkiller: Hell & Damnation, a title that seems more like a warning than anything else. If you're not scared off by that, you can sign up for a PC beta here....

It's hard to put a price on life's simpler pleasures, like staking dudes to walls, or staking dudes to other dudes, or lightning shuriken guns. If you could put a price on those things, it would be much, much higher than $3.99, the temporarily discounted price of Painkiller: Black Edition on GOG....

The good folks at Chillingo invited me to stop by their suite at GDC 2011 last week (which was actually run by EA, thanks to a new deal with EA's Partners program) to see the company's upcoming slate of titles on their way to the iPhone and iPod. On the next page you'll see previews of Blobst...

So here we were, thinking about how odd it was that a demo for Painkiller: Resurrection stealthily released onto the intertron last week after hearing nothing about the game for, oh, like six months, when all of a sudden we noticed that the full game is also now available. In fact, the release was ...

We've heard literally nothing from JoWood Interactive's reboot of the purgatorial stake-gun shooter, Painkiller: Resurrection, since it was first announced back in April. Therefore, we see this news post as providing two important pieces of information, the first being that the game apparently hasn...

Zero Punctuation's Yahtzee rocks it old school this week in a trip down "kill everything you see" lane with a review of Painkiller. Way back in 2004, which if internet time is converted to normal time is circa 1674, Painkiller received better-than-average reviews by embracing the first-person shoot...

In the latest installment of Zero Punctuation, Yahtzee (or rather Retard McSpacky Pants) has set his foul-mouthed sights on The Witcher, a computer RPG in the truest of forms (i.e. a really big manual and familiar medieval fantasy setting) also dubbed a "MUMORPUGER." If you're wondering what a M...

Everyone knows that the best thing about first-person shooter Painkiller is not its incredibly ironic title. (Do you get it? ... Because he causes pain.)

With the PS3 on the rise and the PS2 on the decline, PSP is starting to get ports from some unexpected pla...
