I've been dodging the question all week: "Hey, so how is Dead to Rights: Retribution?" I know what they want to hear, of course. They're expecting me to savage a game that (1) is part of a series that's largely disliked by those who even remember it exists and (2) is made by Volatile Games, whic...

So what if the latest Dead to Rights: Retribution dev diary is unbelievably light on actual gameplay? It makes up for that in droves with a smattering of pretty images of the Abbey Road recording studio where the game's soundtrack is being recorded.

Don't let the headline throw you -- we don't mean the bad kind of dog fighting. We're talking about the kind of dog fighting where well-treated, justice-loving canines attack gun-toting criminals who pose a threat to their master, whom they love and remain eternally loyal to. When cast in that ligh...

As we reported last month, Namco Bandai is "rebooting" (that's cool-talk for "taking another crack at") Dead to Rights, its tale of a cop, his dog and lots of third-person shooting.

Hey, remember Dead to Rights, that mediocre shooter you played in aught-two that inspired you to teach your pekingese how to bite the hands off of gun-toting criminals? If the mention of that particular franchise summons fuzzy nostalgia, we've got great news -- according to a preview in the upcomi...
