  1. There are few things in this world more satisfying than killing Nazis, and no video game series handles this task with more righteous vigor than Wolfenstein. Originally created by id Software in the 1980s, it was 1992's Wolfenstein 3D which caused the series to skyrocket in popularity, revolutionizing the first-person shooter genre and changing video games forever. In 2014, developer MachineGames revived the franchise with Wolfenstein: The New Order, shocking audiences with its provocative alternate history story and impactful gunplay. Wolfenstein: Youngblood sees the twin daughters of series protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz take the fight to Nazi-occupied Paris after their father goes missing in the region. Set twenty years after the end of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Youngblood follows the next generation of Nazi-killers as they take up the family trade. Co-developed by Arkane Studios (Prey, Dishonored), Youngblood adds two player co-op to the mix, allowing players to team up with a friend to save B.J. from the Nazi menace. Along the way, the sisters will inevitably rack up a massive body count with the series' signature mix of efficiently gory stealth kills and visceral shooting. The Wolfenstein games (especially the latest chapters) have always been exceptionally violent, and Youngblood proudly carries the blood-soaked torch in that regard! The recent Wolfenstein games take place in an alternate history in which the Nazis won World War II due to their use of anachronistic technology developed by The New Order's main villain, General Deathshead.The aesthetic of Youngblood leans heavily on its 1980s setting, and the trailer offers moody synth licks which match nicely with the retro dystopia of a Paris subjugated by fascism. Youngblood ups the ante from its predecessors with even more visibly high-tech weaponry and lasers which fire a decidedly neon-hued stream of flaming light. B.J.'s daughters, Jessica and Sophia, know their way around a battlefield, and they both wear the same type of high-tech body suit which B.J. himself equipped in Wolfenstein II. MachineGames and Arkane promise Youngblood offers the biggest environments yet seen in a Wolfenstein title, encouraging players to use teamwork while still being able to tackle combat scenarios however they choose. The series already shines in this respect, and Arkane's work on such freedom-driven games as Dishonored can only add to this mission statement. Depending on how skillfully the game takes advantage of its co-op potential, Youngblood may prove more than just a stopgap in between "proper" Wolfenstein titles; it could be a fantastic co-op experience for the ages. Wolfenstein: Youngblood releases July 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

  3. After a poorly received attempt to revive the Wolfenstein franchise in 2009, many expected the franchise to wither away into obscurity. That is, until MachineGames, a developer formed from ex-members of Starbreeze Studios, took charge of the series and attempted to breathe life into the series one more time in 2014. They succeeded and created the adrenaline-fueled game (with a surprisingly tender heart) about a brain damaged soldier kicking off a new resistance movement against the Nazis in an alternate timeline where the Nazis were able to conquer the world. Is Wolfenstein: The New Order one of the best games period? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: Wolfenstein 3D 'My Loved Ones Are Gone' by Psycho Crusher (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02508) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it! If you want to have your opinion heard on air, share your opinion in the comments, follow the show on Twitter, and participate in the weekly polls: @BestGamesPeriod New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday View full article

  5. Wolfenstein: The New Order was a surprise hit when it launched in 2014 thanks to its well-designed throwback gameplay and surprisingly weighty emotional storytelling. BJ Blazkowicz is back and is taking the fight home to Nazi-occupied America. After apparently surviving the grave injuries he sustained during the New Order's conclusion, BJ awakens in a hospital bed after a what appears to have been a lengthy coma. Despite killing Deathshed in the first game, the Nazis control of the world remains ironclad. This includes the United States, a country who's values have been twisted to fit the Nazis vision. BJ embarks on a mission to unite America's scattered resistance forces and release the Nazis grip on his homeland. Gunplay looks to be as exciting and over-the-top as ever, featuring bombastic gun fights against killer robots, crocodiles, and fire-breathing mechanized behemoths. The New Order's balance of human characterization and storytelling combined with a pulpy element of humor appears intact as well. Players can begin the fight to take back America when the game launches October 27. How do you think the game stacks up to The New Order?
