Easier to join up with friends
We haven't heard much about Tripwire Interactive's Rising Storm 2: Vietnam since it was announced at E3 last year, as the developer been concentrating on Killing Floor 2. In what Tripwire says is the "start of many ...
A week or so ago I drove through Hell Niño in Los Angeles to get my hands on Tom Clancy's The Division in a 2002 Dodge Neon with bad windshield wipers. Let no one ever deny that I am committed. Alongside Ubisoft reps, ...

Roll on up
Fans of large cannons on treads and intractable gameplay will be pleased to know the PS4 version of World of Tanks has a firm release date. Would-be tank commanders can get down and dirty on January 19th and wade into a battl...
Well, I think it does anyway
After a trailer accidentally went up too early, and then was pulled, and was then mirrored and shared and Streisanded all over the place, Ubisoft has now officially released yesterday’s leaked trailer for The Division.
Lord of the Worgen
I've fallen a little behind in Heroes of the Storm since Lunara's debut, but I'll want to get back to playing regularly soon. Blizzard is adding Greymane tomorrow! He's a ranged human assassin capable of transforming into a powerful melee-centric beast mid-fight.
Take a look:
Server functionality remains 'limited'
PlayStation 4 servers for Grand Theft Auto Online has been offline for several hours.
Rockstar's status page acknowledges on the official site that the issue persists, but does not give an indication as to why the s...
Splatoon wants to know: do you prefer The Flintstones or The Jetsons? Well, not really. They want to know what you would do if you could travel through time. Would you go backward or forward? I'd probably go back and tel...
Don't ax me no questions
Sure, everyone's busying themselves on Battlefield: Star Wars, who wants to mess with a year-old, Visceral-developed Battlefield Hardline? Some people, maybe, as EA's Night at the Roxbury is still getting support. The Getawa...
Update 1.2 is live on PC
As it stands, Rainbow Six Siege is at the top of my "eventually!" list. While plenty of people seem to be enjoying the game as it stands, I'm fine waiting for Ubisoft to push out more patches. The latest update was released t...
Let's pass the time
Having issues with PlayStation Network today? We're right there with you.
Sony has confirmed it's aware of the problems. "We are still working on resolving today's issues with PSN," tweeted SCEA's official support line. "Than...
Halo on Xbox One is 1 for 3
When Halo: Reach was added to the Xbox One backward compatibility list, I was mondo excited. Reach is easily my favorite Halo game, with a campaign that eschewed complex mythology in favor of atmosphere and more accessib...
New Splatfests, balance updates in 2016
While I was sad to hear Splatoon is about to make its final big DLC push, I have to look back on the post-launch support fondly. It has been a hell of a year for this increasingly wonderful game.
In a Famitsu interview picked...
Just what I was looking for
The Killing Floor Twisted Christmas events (in which the enemies wear costumes, Christmas music jubilantly plays in the background, and maps like Santa's lair become available) hold a special place in my heart. Tripwire ...
Snowballs and Beast vs. Slasher mode
Today is Christmas Eve for those who celebrate the holiday, and many folks are preparing to see their families and drink entirely too much egg nog. They'll also get into political arguments, Uncle Billy will get embarrassingl...
Damn, I wanted one of the new X-Wings
While it would already seem like EA missed the boat if they were planning on adding anything based on The Force Awakens to Battlefront, a recent tweet put the final nail in that space coffin. Responding to a Twitter user aski...
Local co-op mode possibly?
Here’s a fun little bit of game history for you. According to DualShockers, who attended a talk by Julien Merceron in Paris, Assassin’s Creed was originally going to have a multiplayer mode.

'A lot of people play our stuff'
Naughty Dog has opened up about what it's learned from the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End beta, as well as the lessons learned from previous games.

This is going to be such a time sink
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 looks far more fleshed out than I had originally expected it to be. If all you care about is competitive multiplayer (which was super good in the original!), you'll still be able to melt h...
Short but sweet
I'm not in the Overwatch beta, but that's not about to stop me from marveling at this latest Blizzard cinematic. It's made up of character vignettes that hint at a much wider world, one I really want to see more of in and outside of the game itself. I'm so on board with these designs.
You'll just need a referral code
Ubisoft is holding a free weekend event for Rainbow Six Siege on PC. You'll need to score an access key from a pal (or a friendly stranger) who owns the game, but that shouldn't be hard.
Current players can send up to four Si...

Bring back the world that we loved
All is not calm, all is not right. Not in The Division's war-torn city. "Mom and dad died in the blast." "Everything on earth fell apart." That's a big old lump of coal for humanity, eh?
"Silent Night" is no stranger to vide...
This Friday through Monday
Well, they don't call it XP, exactly, but you know what I mean!
With Force Awakens fresh on our mind this week, Star Wars Battlefront is holding a "double score" event. Between December 18 at 1:00am Pacific and December 21 at...
The squids are all right
Splatoon isn't done giving out content, which is great, because many of us aren't done playing.
The next major update is going to be a pair of maps: Ancho-V Games and Piranha Pit. One is set in a swanky office with raisable p...
Scroll down for the gif!
Forge mode wasn't ready in time for Halo 5: Guardians' launch, but it's here now. The map creation sandbox debuts with some 1,700 objects and will continue to change as 343 Industries takes in feedback from players. Knowing h...
More like LOTY
As media, we have no business caring about the marketing of video games. In fact, we actually have a professional obligation to parse through it, finding the good information and discarding the bullshit. That's, like, half th...
So don't hold your breath, k?
Harmonix has confirmed that while online multiplayer is "very much on the table" for Rock Band 4, it's not yet clear on "where it fits in our roadmap."

If you have that there Steam downloaded
Sword Coast Legends didn't quite make it to the stars it was reaching for, but I'm still confident it'll get there eventually. Now that there's been a couple of content packs, adding in "playable drow elves, new skill tr...
