Poop is something frequently omitted in videogames. How many epic adventures have we all played without seeing our heroes take a quick trip to the water closet en route to saving the world? A lot. Probably. Thankfully, that w...


Think back on Far Cry 3. Reflect on all the memorable moments you had with that game. What sticks out the most? The missions or the unscripted stuff that happened in the open world? Chances are you primarily remember the unsc...


Considering most of the Metal Gear Solid games have been re-released in various fashions over the years, it's surprising that Hideo Kojima isn't too keen on remaking his older games. When asked at Konami's Metal Gear Solid V ...


Even though I wasn’t optimistic about the prospect, I wanted to put my best foot forward. With a cheery tone to my voice, I affirmed the stranger’s request to play Project Totem cooperatively with me. The entire m...


After the runaway success of the first two LittleBigPlanet titles on PS3, fans had been clamoring for a follow-up on Sony's new hardware. With the announcement of LittleBigPlanet 3 at E3 coming to both PS4 and PS3, the LBP co...


Today at gamescom EA, announced the last map pack for Titanfall -- IMC Rising. The three maps will be titled Backwater, Zone 18, and Sandtrap, and as always, it'll run you $10 or $25 for the Season Pass. The Xbox One an...


Gamescom is a noisy, crowded mess. Shoulder to shoulder with patrons that didn’t seem to care what they bump into, I trudged my way to my next appointment. As I stepped through the door to the meeting room, something un...


Far Cry 3 had some pretty wild moments. Like, remember when Vaas was dancing around on the stripper pole? Good stuff. Far Cry 4 will have some crazy segments as well, but these are a little more grounded to the core of the ga...


I am a little baby when it comes to horror movies. I just can’t. I can’t sit and force myself to stare at a screen that will make me scream and flinch. That’s not fun to me! The opposite is true when it com...


At a gamescom presentation today, Sean Murray from Hello Games wanted to give his comeback to a "guy in the comments" that goes against his claim that the universe of upcoming game No Man's Sky is infinite. The comments ...


It seems like yesterday when we were all huddling around the mysterious WebM videos floating around the internet. Showing a strange and unknown game resembling a Souls title, many people didn't know what to make of it. The ch...


A new system for upcoming From Software PS4 title Bloodborne was revealed at gamescom today in a behind-closed-doors meeting. It's called the Regain System, and it lets you recover health after taking a hit.  It's not as easy as it sounds to get your health back, though. 


Though it was initially seen as "Jaws-in-space," the legacy for Alien is certainly much more pristine than the one with the giant shark. Originally released in 1979, the first Alien would eventually become a much-loved horror...


At a gamescom briefing today, Dylan Cuthbert of Q-Games showed off their brand collaboration with Sony Studios Japan for the first time. PS4 title The Tomorrow Children (temporary title) is quite different from Q-Games' other titles, but it does share their trademark creativity and imagination. It's...pretty weird.


Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was a huge game. Like, you could easily sink 100 hours into that whole experience before getting 100 percent completion. So Assassin's Creed Rogue may or may not be quite the game for you. It ...


My Xbox One already looks dirty. Scummy, even. It's not just the fingerprints and dust in the grooves, either. I don't know what they did with their plastics or build or whatever, but mine looks like hell and it hasn't even b...


Okay, so technically there's three big changes that everyone will be excited about, the third being the whole two- to four-player cooperative experience in Assassin's Creed Unity. Personally I'm not all that looking forward t...


2K Games has been trickling out information about the playable characters in the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, but while it has featured Athena the Gladiator, Wilhelm the Enforcer, and Nisha the Lawbringer, the publi...


EA revealed the next update for Star Wars: The Old Republic at its gamescom press conference. The Galactic Strongholds downloadable content will let you build a home in the game. Yup, SWTOR is now Sims. You can show off your cribs to friends in the game.  The update will also include Guild flagships, used to go around space and conquer planets. 


Oh that Hideo Kojima. During Sony's gamescom 2014 press conference earlier today, there was bizarre, eye-catching announcement for something called "P.T." which was said to be playable immediately for PS4 via PlayStation Netw...


This trailer also best explains (though not completely clearly?) the 4 vs. 1, heroes versus villain mode, which we talked a bit about here. Though it's not traditional Fable, there is also regular single-player and co-op pla...


There was a surprising amount of brand new stuff out of gamescom (thanks, Sony!), but let's not forget Sunset Overdrive is coming out October 28. It's pretty fun, though I've only messed with the multiplayer. 


Just look at it. Look at how gorgeous Below is. I need it. I need it NOW!


Season 2 of Killer Instinct begins on October 15, 2014. Fans can expect new fighters, enhanced game modes, and a revamped interface. The Ultra Edition will cost $39.99 and will include eight fighters starting with TJ Combo an...


Ghosts was a giant disappointment but man Advanced Warfare is looking really good. I'm mostly interested in the multiplayer at this point, but the single-player looks like it will be worth it this time around too.  The latest video for the new Call of Duty focuses on San Francisco, showing off a chase and the eventual destruction of the famous Golden Gate Bridge. 


Sony's gamescom showing went by quickly, with announcement after announcement and more than a few new intellectual properties put on display for the first time. Really, though, it's still From Software's Bloodborne that has m...


If you don't like Halo, you probably didn't have a great time watching Microsoft's gamescom conference today. Having said that, they did have a decent indie sizzle reel showing, and the ID@Xbox program is making vast strides compared to how rigid its old ways were during the tail end of the 360. Check out all of the news from Microsoft's conference below.


Back in my day, when trailers and game ads showed players making real intense faces at the screen while clutching their controllers, it was because a game was TOO XTREME for a normal facial expression. Now it seems that such...


Resogun and Super Stardust HD creator Housemarque's next game is Alienation -- a cooperative shooter in which you can "support your allies or go rogue." It's a classic tale of dudes in power armor with giant machine guns ver...


Folk have been wondering what Michel Ancel's new project is and today we got our answer, WiLD. We saw a lovely looking trailer with lush forest, verdant grasslands and a pair of hunters trying to live off the land.  Anc...


PlayStation gamers will be able to invite their friends for a round of cooperative play in Far Cry 4 even if said friends do not own the game. We've known about this for a while, but more specifics have come out of the PlayS...


The last racing game to really hook me was Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit thanks, in no small measure, to the Autolog. Racing against friends was compulsive and really fun, so if Driveclub can do the same but let me race with m...


After all of those icy, blood-filled teasers out of Sony, we finally have our confirmation that they were leading up to Until Dawn. Originally announced back in 2012 for PlayStation 3, it's essentially a videogame take on sl...


Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has gotten a lot of people excited because of its seemingly great combat and interesting reputation system but is it me, or does it just look like a generic dark fantasy game? I'll be honest, m...


Snake loves hiding in cardboard boxes, you know. And it sure looks like our hero's favorite disguise will be incredibly, uh, versatile (?) in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. 


Guns Up!, the top-down free-to-play strategy game coming for PS3, Vita, and PS4, is looking much the same as it did last month, but the new Gamescom trailer makes a more detailed pitch with regards to features and multiplaye...


Sony gave us another peek at Rime today during its gamescom media event in Cologne, Germany, and good lord does this game look pretty. Bravo, Tequila Softworks. Bravo.


Bohemia Interactive's open-world survival game DayZ has its sights set on PlayStation 4. As announced by designer Dean Hall during the PlayStation gamescom 2014 conference, the multiplayer title will arrive on the console, bu...


The new Gamescom trailer for The Order: 1886 has a lot of things in it: Fancy PS4 graphics, Nikola Tesla's verbal handwringing, a release date of February 20th, 2015, and lots of shooting up Victorian monsters with big guns,...


Today during Sony's gamescom press conference, Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell took the stage in Cologne, Germany to showcase his sophomore project, Volume. Volume launches next year, and is coming first to PlayStation 4 and Vita.
