If you've been itching for a new champion in League of Legends, Ekko has arrived. He's' described as the "Boy Who Shattered Time." He's an assasin, and his abilities include the power to stack resonance on enemies after hitt...
Look, Jurassic Park people. Just because you have this wrapped up in a Lego veneer doesn't mean the outcome's going to be any different. We've all seen the movies. Why should we expect vicious dinosaurs won't attack this time?
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a third time, and I never should've watched Jurassic Park III.
From pixel to hero
I've always been fascinated by games that tackle evolution. Not necessarily the scientific principle, but the mechanic -- though a few titles like the brilliant E.V.O.: Search for Eden have managed to address both.
Adventures of Pip which features a tiny pixel that turns into a real boy, and then a hero, isn't quite as groundbreaking, but it's still fun to play.
Today, Wave 4 of the amiibo shopping "experience" begins. We already assumed it was going to be hell on earth based on the pre-order process, and it turned out to be fairly uninspiring all around as shops opened across the US...
She looks awesome
Kazumi Mishima will be playable in Tekken 7, Bandai Namco has announced, and man does she look formidable. In addition to sporting a pretty awesome fighting style she also can call upon a freaking tiger to do her bidding. Pr...

I SAID, LOOK BEHIND YOU
Though Konami wants to "scorch the earth" and deny that P.T. was possibly the best game reveal in the history of forever (do I still sound bitter?), there are some determined to keep the dream -- or nightmare -- alive.
Insert Weakest Link joke here
Sony headlined UK consumer rights programme Watchdog last night.
Following a recap of Sony's troublesome history with hacks and insecure customer data, the programme took umbrage with Sony Europe's digital refund po...
Prepare thy wallet, the harvest is nigh
On a dark, humid night, you hear it. Slowly, it creeps towards you – clink. Clink. Clink. It sounds inhuman. You close your eyes, hoping the thing won’t find you… but it does. It always does.
You can feel i...
Another in a long line of KS failures
Here’s a fun game dev fact for you: making an MMO is a long, hard, and expensive task that will generally end in failure and misery for everyone involved. If huge companies like BioWare can screw it up, it’s proba...
Update: The stream is over, but feel free to watch the replay embedded below!
Tonight the game you've all been waiting for releases at midnight, Splatoon. I'm so darned excited I'm sitting here dripping ink in anticipation, b...
New game from WayForward vets
Breaking News! I just received a top secret communique via the World Wide Web that reads as follows ~ "Due to popular demand & the magic of @NintendoAmerica, Adventures of Pip will launch on #WiiU early: June 4!" Destruc...
Too good to be true?
This supposed image of the Prima strategy guide for Splatoon shows some curious weapons including, oh my god, NES Zappers. The names even reflect the light guns' release years!
Is this stuff real? One of the weapons, the Inkb...
$10 for iPad and Android tablets
With Desktop Dungeons now available for iPad and Android tablets, I can easily see it becoming an obsession all over again. This is $10, straight up; no in-app purchases, no bullshit. The Enhanced Edition's daily challenges a...
Step one: Play Space Marine
There's a lot to love in this Humble Weekly Bundle of Relic games, but I have to give a special shout out to Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. Years later, I'm still amazed it turned out as well as it did. Satisfying shooting, ...
Where there's a will, there's a whale
Whether we like it or not, mobile gaming has become huge. And for a publisher like NCSOFT that has long been an exclusive MMO provider, the company is making the smart move of shifting some of those dying genre resources over...
Let's go, giant robot of steel!
A blast of '70s-inspired action is bombarding Steam next week in Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser.
Announced for a western release nearly two years ago, the mecha shooter from doujin studio Astro Port (Gigantic Army) is fina...
The thing that gets us to the thing
In case you couldn't tell, the 1980s is having a bit of comeback. With so many games and films (Kung Fury is out today!) seeking to emulate the vibrant and lively era, there's plenty of people out there feeling nostalgic for ...
Four player fun
You know that great feeling in life when you've fucked up? Maybe it's immediate, like when you drop your iPhone or accidentally dismember and decapitate your neighbor and dump his body piecemeal into the ocean. Maybe it's th...
Why the Souls series' hardened rep?
"Prepare to die," Dark Souls warns, flashlight under face, as if 30 years of video games hasn't already prepared me.
"I'm not a masochist," people say, letting six years of Souls pass from afar, like they're looking out a tra...
Getting further and further from Unity
Plenty of publishers are high on the second screen experience, but Ubisoft's coming down from that -- well, at least a little. The next installment in the Assassin's Creed franchise won't come paired with a companion app...
Do you hate it?
When Hatred debuted, I pretty much kept quiet. No one can really win in that situation, when the explosion of opposing viewpoints was at its loudest. I decided to wait until the finished product was out and play it for m...
As a direct follow-up to the "Officer Down" video, WB's posted another seven-minute long Arkham Knight gameplay video detailing what Batman does best. There's some information gained via duress, a smooth 55x combat comb...
Also, Splatoon and Don't Starve
It's a great week for Wii U owners, with Splatoon arriving tomorrow on the eShop and at retail. You'll also find both the Blue Moon and Red Sun versions of Mega Man Battle Network 4 on the Virtual Console, in additi...
Racing games have flattened. There are still kart racers and there are still realistic racers (with mild middle ground for realistic-looking arcade racers, like Forza Horizon) and that's it. Why? Where are the horse racers a...
Terraria jumps the shark
Every time a new Terraria update trailer comes out, I find myself watching and rewatching it to try to pick out things that are new. The most obvious one in this 1.3 trailer is the mine cart. Now that it's here, it surprises...
Maybe more's in store at E3
June is almost upon us, and as is tradition, it'll be quite a busy month in the video game world. E3's set to take place in just a few weeks, at which point we'll get a ton of news about upcoming titles. It's like your birthd...
The Phantom Pootie Tang
Geralt, why are you bald? Also, where is your body?
Geralt, why are sniffing your own bum? I don't endorse ass play in fantasy settings without modern hygiene standards.
The naked bodies have fused in unholy matrimony erupti...
The minds behind the popular competitive Super Smash Bros. forums SmashBoards are at it again, and this time they have their eyes set on Splatoon. SquidBoards hopes to be the hub for all things competitive Splatoon, from...
