Valve is putting out a feature-length documentary which tracks three professional Dota 2 players as they train for the million-dollar tournament, The International. The movie, rather strangely titled Free to Play, releases f...

The Last of Us making-of documentary free on Amazon photo
The Last of Us making-of documentary free on Amazon
by Jordan Devore

Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us is a documentary produced by Area 5 and if you have cleared the game's story mode already, it's definitely one for the to-watch list. Better yet, it's actually free on Amazon in the US right now, either to rent or own.

According to Naughty Dog, Grounded will be up on the PlayStation YouTube channel "very soon" for everyone outside of the US in addition to possibly coming to more venues later on.

I watched about half of the movie last night and as ever, I was left baffled at the sheer time, energy, and devotion that goes into making these monstrous games. It's scary.

Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us Now Available on Amazon Instant Video [PlayStation Blog]

Making-of Killer Instinct documentary shows a humbled dev

There's been a lot of skepticism circling around the return of Killer Instinct. It's understandable, to be sure, that nervousness would be the natural response to a new developer taking point on a long-dormant series. It's n...

DuckTales flies in August, boxed PS3 version incoming photo
DuckTales flies in August, boxed PS3 version incoming
by Tony Ponce

You know what I never had a chance to do at E3 this year? Visit Scrooge McDuck's money bin. Not my fault that iam8bit planted the installation friggin' miles away from the show floor! Those jerks!

Anyway, Capcom has finally announced launch dates for DuckTales Remastered. Wii U, PS3, and PC players can solve a mystery on August 13, but Xbox 360 players will have to wait until September 11 to rewrite history. But wait! There is an additional surprise in the form of a limited-edition boxed release, exclusive to the PS3, arriving August 20. Okay, it's just a download code rather than a physical disc, but you get sweet cover art and a special DuckTales collector's pin!

To hype yourselves up, check out the first part of WayForward's documentary chronicling their whirlwind development journey. Also remember to set aside some fowl funds -- $14.99 for the digital release, $19.99 for the PS3 box.

Minecraft: The Story of Mojang airs on Xbox Live soon
by Jordan Devore

Now that an absurd amount of Minecraft sales have happened on Xbox 360, it makes a bit more sense that the console would be home to the premier of 2 Player Production's documentary about the studio behind the hit game. Catch the trailer for it above.

Minecraft: The Story of Mojang airs this Saturday, December 22 at 8:00pm Eastern for Xbox Live Gold members, according to Major Nelson. As tends to be the case, there are restrictions based on applicable regions -- the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal, Austria, France, Finland, and Sweden are good to go.

We feel your pain, Canada and everyone else excluded. If you're unwilling or unable to catch this initial free viewing, The Story of Mojang will be available for purchase on December 23.
