Oct 12

Three Yager (Spec Ops: The Line, Dead Island 2) developers have left the company to go indie as inbetweengames. This is a few months after publisher Deep Silver dropped Yager as the developer on Dead Island 2, just a few mon...

Take a look at the heroes and enemies of Dragon Quest Heroes

Oct 12
// Chris Carter
One of the first games I ever played was Dragon Quest on the NES, known as Dragon Warrior in the west. It was the game that gave me the RPG knowledge I have today, and I still have vivid memories of the colorful and...

Oh right, a new Fatal Frame comes out next week

Sneaky Nintendo
Oct 12
// Kyle MacGregor
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is creeping its way to North America next week. Literally. Nintendo of America hasn't been terribly gung-ho about promoting Koei Tecmo's latest, despite the fact it's one of this autumn's mo...

This fake crossover of The Sims and Pokemon actually looks fun

Can it be real?
Oct 12
// Chris Carter
The Sims gets a lot of shit. Sure, it has DLC and expansions coming out of the rafters, but historically, the core games have been pretty decent -- outside of the latest iteration that stripped out a ton of features of ...

Halo 5 is almost out, so 343's getting busy defending microtransactions

Oct 12
// Steven Hansen
"It's not pay-to-win," "you can get everything in-game without paying," "balance," "oral doesn't count as sex." Every time a game with microtransactions is about to release -- especially if it's a big 'ol game like Halo 5 -- ...

Get a quick look at the Disney Infinity Force Awakens Play Set

I hope Kylo Ren isn't lame
Oct 12
// Chris Carter
I'm so torn on Kylo Ren. On one hand, he looks awesome, has a sufficiently cool-sounding backstory, and the fact that he's "not a Sith" is intriguing. On the other, he's played by Adam Driver, the absolute worst character on ...

Oct 12
// Patrick Hancock
On October 21, 2015, the date Marty McFly went to in Back to the Future Part II, Rocket League will be getting some movie-flavored DLC. The DeLorean and a "Burnt Rubber" rocket trail will be added into the game for a me...

NASCAR unveils two Halo 5 themed paint schemes in real life

Yes this is real
Oct 12
// Chris Carter
I had to do a triple-take to make sure this wasn't a promotion for Forza or something, but yes, NASCAR has unveiled two actual real life paint jobs promoting Halo 5. Dale Earnhardt Jr. himself will race No. 88, featuring...

Sonic Boom Season 2 is coming, you can't stop it

He's the fastest thing alive
Oct 12
// Chris Carter
As far as Sonic cartoons go, the Sonic Boom show actually isn't bad -- hell, it's way more entertaining than the games themselves. For those of you who do enjoy it, you're going to get more of it, as distributor LER has ...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III unlocks all campaign levels from start

'Unlocking level system is [archaic]'
Oct 12
// Steven Hansen
If the (expected) seven hours it takes to finish Call of Duty: Black Ops III's single-player campaign is too much of a time commitment, note that you can just skip right on to the end of the game. (And if you're on PS3 or 360...

Get free Halo 5 DLC for watching ten short videos

One REQ pack
Oct 12
// Brett Makedonski
Most microtransactions ask that you trade real-world money for small chunks of video game content. A Halo 5 pre-release microtransaction promotion doesn't require your money, however; it requires your time. Fortunat...

Star Wars Battlefront has a $50 season pass

Burn it all to the ground
Oct 12
// Brett Makedonski
No! No, no, no! We were doing so well, Star Wars Battlefront. We had that open beta that anyone could play, with nothing locked behind a pre-order wall. Gameplay looked like fun, and we got a bunch of amusing clips out of it....

Cutting cords

At GDC this year, Phil Spencer announced that sometime in 2015 people would be able to use their Xbox One controllers wirelessly on their PC. It seems as if Windows 10 was a big part of those plans. Now that the operating sys...

Star Citizen, the massively crowd-funded, ambitious space game, has seen a rough patch this year of missed release windows and a more recent lawsuit threats against a media outlet, but there's also a video game in developmen...

It looks like Nintendo is planning a Yo-Kai Watch demo

If you want to see what all the hubbub is about for Yo-Kai Watch, it looks like you don't have to spend any money. Given this Australian Classification listing, Nintendo, the publisher of the game outside of Japan, seems to b...

NBA 2K: Jerk Kobe, teammates smacking each other, and the best dance moves

I could go for some jerked kobe
Oct 12
// Steven Hansen
NBA 2K16's been out for a while now and since both baseball season and football season are already over and there's nothing to watch, here is a collection of things people have shared from NBA 2K16 that have amused me over the past two weeks. Here's a cheeky, old man Kobe stealing a high five.

Nintendo held a pretty cool launch event for Chibi Robo at the World Store

Maybe there's hope for the little guy
Oct 12

The Chibi-Robo franchise is in dire straits. Nintendo has noted recently that Zip Lash is his last shot, and the reviews so far haven't been kind. On the bright side, this launch event held at the Nintendo World Store actual...

You can play Windjammers 2 right now (kinda)

The closest we'll get to a sequel
Oct 12
// Myles Cox
Windjammers on the Neo Geo has to be probably one of my favorite multiplayer experiences of all time. Unfortunately if you'd like to actually play it today it's going to cost you hundreds of dollars as well as a plethora of ...

The Overlord series again makes a trip to Hell in little more than a week. Kind of sudden, eh? Extended stays in the Underworld aren't things that get rigorously planned out and marked on calendars for months to come. O...

Yo-Kai Watch Busters is so popular that it's getting a third version

Yo-Kai Watch is so popular in Japan that they can get away with the "multiple version" concept like every Pokémon game before it. It's so popular in fact that a spinoff, Busters, is getting its third iteration soo...

Supermassive Games is considering an Until Dawn sequel

It 'surpassed expectations'
Oct 12
// Chris Carter
Until Dawn didn't blow me away, but it was a fun little horror romp that everyone should experience once, even if it's at a discount price. It was kind of understood that Sony put it out to pasture as it didn't advertise...

Is he right?
Oct 12
// Vikki Blake
Nathan Drake's voice actor, Nolan North, reckons we don't want to see an Uncharted movie. In an interview with GamesNewsOfficial, North said that fans are so invested with the Drake we know and love (and lust after - although that might just be me), "no matter who's the star of it," we just don't want a movie.

Usually when science and video games meet, it’s to do the billionth study on whether or not they cause violence. Every time, a lot of money is spent to find out that no, video games probably don’t cause violence, ...

A generic cardboard box.  It may look pedestrian, but it's light, sturdy, and has a hundred and one uses. How can we get by without them? A good cardboard box is a soldier's best friend; having one handy can mean the difference between life and death. [Via @Wario64]
