Initial Sonic Boom redesigns caused 'discomfort' in Sonic Team

A lot of people reacted strongly to the new Sonic Boom character redesigns. While the designs mostly seem goofy and easy to jab at, they were way more outlandish at the onset, according to a GameSpot interview with Big Red Bu...

The man behind Lamar from GTA V to become Black Jesus

This is TOTALLY barely even videogame related at all but I still wanted to write about it because Lamar from Grand Theft Auto V was one of my favorite characters from a videogame last year. So I'm happy to see Gerald "Slink"...

The Xbox One Media Remote is now official

An accidental unveiling of the Xbox One Media Remote warmed us up to the device being a thing that exists, but I'm still not too keen on paying $24.99 for it. Microsoft has now properly announced the remote -- it's releasing ...

Preview: South Park: The Stick of Truth is ambitious
by Alessandro Fillari

So, where were you when South Park: The Stick of Truth was announced? This was all the way back in 2011, around the time another certain RPG title was on the minds of players. It was certainly a surprising reveal, don't you think? A brand new full-fledged RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment and written and produced by the talent from the show? Sounded pretty cool to me. With an initial 2012 release date, I was looking forward to the day I could try it out.

But then things happened; it got delayed, and delayed again, and then the original publisher THQ filed for bankruptcy. Things seemed to have looked up when Ubisoft acquired publishing rights and announced a new date. But then it got delayed again, and again. This game has been delayed so much, the TV show it's based on has actually poked fun at the situation. Seriously, go check out the episode "Titties & Dragons" -- it was almost like a tease.

But now, we can  see the light at the end of the tunnel as the game has finally gone gold. With less than a month away from release, Ubisoft invited the press to get some much-appreciated hands-on time with the long-delayed title. Though read ahead with warning: if you hate South Park and you're otherwise easily offended, I can tell you now this game will probably piss you off.

Xbox developing show around rapper Nas' life in 90's NY

Maybe the yet-to-be-dated Halo series isn't your speed. Nor is that soccer reality show. Maybe you'd like a TV show loosely based around Nas' life as an up and coming rapper in 1990's New York? According to Deadline, Street D...
