Co-Op Shooter Fuse will be releasing a demo for its game on May 7th. The demo will be available through Xbox live and the PlayStation network. The demo will include solo play or four player co-op.

Tomb Raider Weekend

All Tomb Raider games will be on sale at 50% off this weekend on Steam. I have just recently started playing the new 2013 Tomb Raider and it is a fantastic game. If you have been thinking about picking up any or all Tomb Raider games, this would be the perfect time.

Microsoft “Xbox” Domains

Looks like Microsoft has grabbed every Xbox Fusion domain it possibly can. Microsoft is revealing the new Xbox on May 21st this year, could this possibly be the name of the new Xbox or maybe a new Xbox experience? It could also very well be nothing, we will just have to wait and see as anticipation for the the Xbox conference and E3 draw near.

Neverwinter Online

The new MMO Neverwinter Online by developer Perfect World has gone into Open Beta. Anyone interested in playing this Online experience of the Neverwinter universe can download and play for free at Neverwinter-Online. This beta will not experience any character wipes, so when it does go out of beta into final, you will not have to worry about re-rolling a new character. This game is also free to play, so nothing is stopping you from checking it out.

Epic’s Unreal Engine 3

Epic released a video awhile back showcasing a run through on a level called Citadel running on the new Unreal Engine 3. Now you can try out Citadel yourself, through the Firefox Browser. Citadel is able to run on the new Firefox 23 (nightly) in HTML 5, so make sure you have the most “up to date” version of Firefox.
