The power of neon!
Jack of all trades, master of none. Sure Delson from Infamous: Second Son has the ability to suck up other people's powers for his own, which is pretty cool in its own right. But those that just have one specific power to man... read feature

This is next-gen gaming at its finest

Hideo Kojima not keen on remaking his previous games


If he had to choose MGS 1 would be the one
Aug 13
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 ... read

Alien: Isolation photo
Admire its purity
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... read feature

Except now you're a bad guy so you can totally kill everybody

Here's a better look at that Sunset Overdrive White Xbox One


Ooh, shiny

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... read

Watch the Golden Gate Bridge get destroyed in Advanced Warfare


Okay, those grenades are hecka cool
Aug 12
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.  read

Lots of Halo
If you don't like Halo, you probably didn't have a great time watching Microsoft's gamescom conference today.
