As journalists, this is exactly the sort of thing we're supposed to avoid, yet try as we might, we can't help but be inordinately excited for Viking: Battle for Asgard. It's like someone took the narrative style of 300, infused it with the tale of Beowulf, and then tossed in the epic battles of The...

We've already seen how suspiciously close the game's bad guys look to that of Peter Jackson's orcs, but y...

Probably the biggest title on the list is Condemned 2: Bloodshot, the sequel to one of the 360's better launch titles, which releases March 14 acr...

Sure, we've played games with basically the same premise, location and enemies as Viking: Battle for Asgard, but one thing's for certain, we haven't grown tired of them yet. Battle for Asgard is shaping up to be a must-buy, and with The Creative Assembly, which is responsible for the excelle...

Someday, Blizzard will wise up and realize that they're wasting their time with World of Warcraft and Starcraft 2. What they'll someday realize is that the Lost Vikings IP is where the real money's at. Until that sweet day of vindication though, we have to placate ourselves with other Viking-themed...
