Exclusive: Danica Patrick to guest star in Archie Sonic

I thought I was done with kart racers, but after playing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed at E3, I think I'm up for at least one more rodeo. It's extremely fun, easy to control, and more colorful than a bag of Jelly B...

Josh Holloway's six-pack abs aren't in Dishonored so STFU

Dishonored has one hell of a voice cast but Lost's Josh Holloway is not on the bill. Due to some confusion over this on other news sites, Dishonored co-director Harvey Smith cleared this up for us (as well as BethBlog's Twitt...

Paul McCartney working on writing music with Bungie photo
Paul McCartney working on writing music with Bungie
by Brett Zeidler

Well, happy Bungie Day everyone! On the seventh day of every July, Bungie fans impatiently wait for cryptic messages of upcoming projects that Bungie happens to be working on at the time. This year's most exciting Bungie Day announcement didn't come from the legendary game studio, but from Sir Paul McCartney himself. Announced through his official Facebook page earlier this morning, he stated that he's "really excited to be working on writing music with Bungie, the studio that made Halo."

A photo from Abbey Road Studios taken back in May surfaced this morning that showed Martin O'Donnell collaborating with Paul in the same studio where all The Beatles records were put down on tape. I can't explain my jealousy. It's not clear if this is just new music in general, or music that will be used in Bungie's upcoming unannounced project. We heard way back in January that McCartney was working on videogame music, so could this be what he was talking about?

I truly hope it's music for the rumored Marathon reboot/sequel. I would probably explode with excitement.

Aisha Tyler combats 'illiterate and racist' gamer attacks

Aisha Tyler hosted Ubisoft's E3 press conference this year and, in all fairness, continued the publisher's tradition of inflicting a cavalcade of embarrassing jokes upon a cringing audience. Backlash was inevitable, and Ms. T...

Snoop Dogg's Tekken Tag 2 rap vid is so unnecessary

I still can't get over the fact that Snoop Dogg has a themed level in the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It is truly one of the most bizarre bits of news to come out of E3 2012. Aside from his claims that he's long been a...
