Meet Yoshi's New Island, same as the old island
by Steven Hansen

Do you know what's fun? Making Yoshi noises. Come on. Do it. The tongue grab. The flutter jump. The ground pound. Such an animated dinosaur. Hamza and Dale are really good at making Yoshi noises.

Yoshi's New Island is also fun.

You have a chance to name these three new Skylanders

Frito-Lay and Activision are holding a little promotion to let fans name these three brand new Skylander characters that will appear in the next game coming out in 2014. There's just something so off about that dolphin creatu...

AntiSquad resembles a Team Fortress 2 turn-based strategy

Set in a rocky desert environment and starring a cast of international mercenaries, it is reasonable to surmise that developer InsGames drew a bit of inspiration for AntiSquad from Valve's iconic team-based shooter. Of cours...

Wolfenstein: The New Order is as middling as I feared photo
Wolfenstein: The New Order is as middling as I feared
by Abel Girmay

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a videogame that has guns in it, and you use these guns to kill people. That's about as remarkable a statement as I could rack my brain for after spending three hours with game.

As much as some Wolfenstein fans may want to greet The New Order with fanfare and anticipation, I have to say folks, there just doesn't seem anything noteworthy to this newest title. With the exception of a few moments, Wolfenstein: The New Order feels like a phoned-in, by the numbers first-person shooter.

I don't think I'll mind getting lost in The Witness

I'm looking out my window as I type this and what I see is a mostly overcast sky and lots of drab grays and blues. It's sleepy. What I'd rather be looking at are these warm, teeming-with-life screenshots from Jonathan Blow's ...

Pre-order Wolfenstein, get access to the next Doom game photo
Pre-order Wolfenstein, get access to the next Doom game
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

You'll get to shoot Nazi faces off in Wolfenstein: The New Order starting on May 20, 2014 in North America, and May 23, 2014 in Europe.

Typically release date confirmations would be a story on its own, but Bethesda has sweetened the pot here as pre-ordering the new shooter will also get you access into the beta for Doom 4. Note that Bethesda is referring to it as the "next Doom game" instead of as Doom 4. A reboot, perhaps? The Wolfenstein site has a little more info regarding the beta.

Along with that the release date and the next Doom game beta is this new trailer that starts off with a bang. Literally, look at those President heads explode. Bethesda sure knows how to make killer trailers.

Spacemen, Zorros & foxes: Conception II shows off babies

Not to make a thing of it, but why are half the girl babies slightly less clothed than the boys? Maybe it's just the Rob Liefeld-lite uncomfortably arched back in the above photo that's bothering me. She looks like Christian ...

These Xenogears mecha made of Legos are incredible

Long before Xenogears became my favorite game of all time, Legos were my favorite toy of all time. So seeing the two combined is a thrill for me. Lego user diegocabrera has put together some of the mecha from the PlayStation ...

New Mythical Pokemon Diancie is a Fairy-Rock

Diancie, as well as the new Pokemon movie it will be featured in, leaked a couple days ago, but now we have official confirmation and some more screenshots. The rare Pokemon won't be found in normal gameplay, but Nintendo isn't yet spilling how you can acquire it. It looks like an arrowhead with a shirt and crystals up top. Shine on you crazy diamond.

Borderlands 2's final Headhunter DLC goes to the beach
