First person brawler Zeno Clash featured a very unique world with great stylisation and a wide variety of enemies to fight using the satisfying combat mechanics. The sequel is looking like it will retain at least one of those things judging by these recently released screens of the game in action.

SteamBox to be available next year.
Valve boss Gabe Newell has said that Steam’s recent big picture mode was received “much stronger than expected” by consumers, and the company will now push ahead to get Steam Linux out of beta and onto specially designed PC packages, which he expects to be available next year.
He expects that along with Steam-manufactured boxes, third party manufacturers will also bring similar devices to market, which will be able to be hooked directly up to a TV and run Steam right out of the box. He confirmed they will compete with next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
“I think in general that most customers and most developers are gonna find that [the PC is] a better environment for them,” Newell told me. “Cause they won’t have to split the world into thinking about ‘why are my friends in the living room, why are my video sources in the living room different from everyone else?’ So in a sense we hopefully are gonna unify those environments.”
Irrational Games has unveiled the final box art for Bioshock Infinite.
SHOCKING NEWS! (Not really shocking) Next-Xbox Confirmed for Holiday 2013. Again.
We got it, start saving your pennies now. I know I am. Bloomberg is now getting into the act of letting us all know the worst kept secret in the gaming industry; Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox is coming next year and in time for Thanksgiving.
The new device is planned for Thanksgiving and Christmas sales, said the people, who declined to be identified because the product road map is confidential. The software maker hasn’t decided whether to unveil the new Xbox at an industry event such as the E3 show in June, or a separate event devoted solely to the machine, one of the people said.
Now the real question is going to be how much power is this thing gonna be giving us. I need DBZ power levels for reference.
