Be it guns, fists or blades, games very often live or die on whether or not the combat works. After playing a ludicrous number of hours of Sleeping Dogs, combat has been in the forefront of my mind. Which games stick with you because of their approach to combat?

Heroes always need sidekicks. In comics and buddy-cop shows, a wisecracking friend can be essential in bringing life to a potentially dull and uninteresting journey without humour.

A few of you wee rapscallions may be reading this post thinking, what the crap is The Demon’s Forge, why is it hunted, and why should a give a toss? All valid questions, and this trailer drops a few answers. Imagine a cross between Gears of War and Dungeons and Dragons. A dungeon crawler that rewards exploration and gives you two interchangeable co-op leads to toy with, each with significantly different tactics. Sounds cool, don’t it? Well that’s what those chaps at inXile Entertainment are bringing to the table. Well that, and sexy back.
