PSA: The Smash Bros. Wii U Club Nintendo voucher is behind the cover art

This is a pretty strange PSA but I know someone is going to go on a Twitter rant after they crack open their new copy of Super Smash Bros. Wii U, so here goes. I don't know about you all, but one of the first things...

Thanks to Walmart's new online price matching, some customers were recently able to set up phony third-party listings on Amazon.com and convince the retailer to honor totally ridiculous discounts. For instance, how does a Pla...

The Phantom Bow makes me want to get back into Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 Premium players have dug into this week's Final Stand DLC and found a number of secrets, including a cool-looking compound bow gated behind a force field in Hanger 21. Last I checked, the community at large was...

Jet Jaguar looks like a real pain in the ass in Godzilla

Am I going to have to import this Godzilla game for PlayStation 3, Bandai Namco? (Psst: That's your cue to announce its localization.) It's out in Japan on December 18, so ... Nothing? Waiting indefinitely for the game to po...

Review: WWE 2K15 photo
Review: WWE 2K15
by Brittany Vincent

Professional wrestling was a cultural phenomenon when I was younger. In the third grade, conversations at school were a general 50/50 mix of Dragon Ball Z fact repetition and which was better: WCW or WWF. When Hulk Hogan started the nWo, school was chaos. I remember fistfights over nWo and WCW supremacy that lasted two years until the nWo split into nWo Hollywood and nWo Wolfpac. Then the saga between the poor kids who had white nWo shirts and whose parents couldn't afford the new red ones and the kids whose parents could afford them started to play out (because, duh, Wolfpac for life.)

As we all got older though, the wrestling fad gave way to Pokémon, then Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace (it's hard to believe, but we all loved it when it came out), and wrestling was soon forgotten by most and unfortunately relegated to the white-trash stereotype. However, wrestling continued, although these days it seems to lack the gaudy style of yesteryear. Its drama is a pale imitation of the antics of Randy Savage (bless his soul), Hulk Hogan, Sting, and others. WWE 2K15 is also is a pale imitation of 15-year-old-plus games like WWF: No Mercy and WCW/nWo Revenge.

We might learn more about Arkham Knight at The Game Awards 2014

Rocksteady's conclusion to the Arkham trilogy will happen a bit later than everyone expected, and as such, there's still more to learn about the game. That's no big surprise; we're still discovering easter eggs in Arkha...

I like Far Cry 4's map editor because it leads to goat butt stabbing videos

Imagine a scenario where goats take over and rule supreme. Not good-natured, frolic in the meadow, eat your leafy spruge goats. No, purely evil, human-devouring, straight-up refuse to eat your leafy spurge goats. Pretty...

I want to run right past these gravekeeper hags in Bloodborne

Bloodborne isn't coming out until March. That means I have a solid few months to mentally prepare myself for these horrific things, described by Sony Japan Studio producer Masaaki Yamagiwa as "deformed gravekeeper hags." I do...

Sakurai: Ridley as a playable Smash Bros. fighter 'wouldn't be Ridley any longer'

Super Smash Bros. fans are all about Ridley, and I get it. The Metroid character would be cool to play as, but it's just not happening. Not this time. Speaking to IGN, director Masahiro Sakurai laid out why: "...if we made Ri...

Korean MMO seems to outdo recent JRPGs

Just aesthetically, Peria Chronicles looks better than all these budget, tropefest JRPGs that fill time between Persona installments. And it's more impressive when you realize that this is a (Korean) MMO with ...

Far Cry 4 lead working on brand new personal project at Ubisoft

As much smack as I have to talk about the likes of Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs and all of Ubisoft's open world oeuvre, along with Uplay practices, I can never damn the company fully. Aside from it putting out Ra...
