Resident Evil is The Beatles, The Last of Us is The Offspring photo
Resident Evil is The Beatles, The Last of Us is The Offspring
by Jonathan Holmes

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is the latest episodic game series about a grizzled man with a dark past protecting a mysterious child survive a zombie or zombie-like danger scenario.

Our own Alessandro Fillari recently had the chance to get some time in with the Barry Burton side of the game's campaign, as well as the new iteration of its score-focused Raid Mode. Both of these modes may be a little more strange than Alessandro led you to believe. Either that or he just has a much higher tolerance for weirdness than I do. From where I stand, this game looks bananas. 

This video was initially planned to be about a minute long, working as little supplement to Alessandro's write-up. Before I knew it, I was seamlessly splicing together sound-alike pop songs from different generations of music history, giving The Last of Us a new name, making a supercut of some of Barry Burton's best lines from Revelations 2, and erasing the whiteness around the one and only Sherlock Hemlock. 

If you have half as much fun watching this video as I had making it, then you're about to have an above-average amount of fun.

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Havoc photo
Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Havoc
by Chris Carter

Call of Duty map packs are definitely a mixed bag. Fifteen dollars is pricey by any standards, and the prospect of one or two remade maps and a grand total of four arenas isn't anything to get excited about.

Advanced Warfare's new Havoc DLC has just arrived this week on Xbox platforms, and it's par for the course in terms of what you'd expect. As usual though, zombies save the day.

Misanthropes rejoice: Evolve's solo mode is looking good

Sometimes I am in the mood for good competitive multiplayer action, and thus far Evolve has looked like it will be up to that task. Other times, I'd rather not deal with other people, and that's okay with Turtle Rock's multi...

OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood debuts its first trailer
by Chris Carter

OlliOlli took off like a storm after it hit the Vita. While it was an unassuming indie skating game, its quality spoke for itself, and it's a certified success at this point. Developer Roll7 didn't rest on its laurels though, as the studio is now showing off its first footage for the sequel, OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood for the PS4 and Vita.

It'll feature new tricks, a local multiplayer mode, new environments, and multiple routes. The development team notes that it has tried its hardest to make every stage feel unique, and four players will now be supported by way of split-screen.

Yep, I'm very interested in this. The current release window is still "2015."

Text box attacks and more in Dragon Quest Heroes

Dragon Quest Heroes is coming to PS3 and PS4. Non-exclusive property as it is--in fact, we've seen a lot more Dragon Quests on Nintendo consoles recently--it seems to be the PlayStation console answer to Hyrule Warriors, which Jordan is somehow still playing. I think he's even going to buy an amiibo for it.

Dying Light riffs on Destiny's loot cave

Destiny players have gone four months now without the comforting tedium of the loot cave -- a dark abyss that would yield decent gear drops in return for shooting at it for hours on end. Understandably, Bungie said that'...

Review: Dying Light photo
Review: Dying Light
by Chris Carter

As you may have heard, we got our Dying Light review code pretty late. As in, the day before launch. A late show doesn't necessarily instill confidence in a project, especially since a lot of fans had no idea what to expect from Techland's latest.

It's strange that this situation even happened considering Dying Light is one of Techland's best games outside of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.

Breaking: You can now fully copy and paste PSN codes online
