First look at Agent 47 in the new Hitman film

2007's Hitman movie wasn't awful. In fact, I'd be willing to believe that people were even fans of the adaptation. But there's certainly plenty of room for improvement and here's hoping Agent 47 delivers where the prior movie...

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]

Need for Speed movie trailer shows who's a better driver

So, the Super Bowl was yesterday, huh? I bet you either love sports, or hates sports, or are somewhere between those two extremes. Maybe you're even really apathetic about them. What an interesting and unique viewpoint you p...

Gears of Microsoft, Sly Cooper Movie, & Halo: The Series
by Max Scoville



Microsoft buys Gears of War, and puts Black Tusk to work on a new game, InFamous: Second Son's latest developer diary gets wet, there's a new video for episode 2 of Bioshock Infinite's Burial At Sea DLC, the Sly Cooper movie gets a trailer, Elysium director Neil Blomkamp is supposedly directing the first episode of the Halo show, and the guy who did the O.D.S.T. commercials is on board for a Ghost In The Shell movie. The Elder Scrolls Online won't require a Playstation Plus membership on top of its monthly fee, Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 is a real thing, and Namco Bandai is now Bandai Namco.

A Sly Cooper movie is happening

Sly Cooper has always been one of my favorite game series, mostly because it faithfully recreates the feeling of a Saturday morning cartoon. The cast is also likable and full of life, which is a testament to their solid char...

Preview: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
by Alessandro Fillari

Whenever games tied to a major license are announced, there's usually a collective grumble from fans. Titles based on movies, television, or comics usually don't end up well, as most of the time they're developing with the focus on the brand as opposed to the game itself. With the announcement of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor back in November, many fans were taken aback by its seemingly loose interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien's fiction.

But of course, you can chalk this up to pre-emptive nervousness considering the franchise's history in gaming. Which is totally understandable. But things now appear to be different, and this new sandbox action title from Monolith -- the developers of F.E.A.R, No One Lives Forever, and Condemned -- plans to take a fresh approach to making a game with Tolkien's lore.

During a private presentation of the game, Destructoid got the chance to check out a lengthy look at the game that represents a vertical slice of what the developers at Monolith have planned for their next foray into Middle-earth.

The gameplay modes of Rambo: The Video Game

A new trailer has been released for Rambo: The Video Game focused on the variety of gameplay contained within. You'll see stealth kills, bits of shooting, environmental destruction and QTE. Yeah, quick-time events are apparently considered a "feature" in Rambo, which ought to give just about anybody pause for reflection.
