When I cruise around the internet looking for juicy junk to shove down all of your throats, I listen to a large variety of music to keep myself focused. I've been on a Super Castlevania IV kick lately, so I went to the o...

The folks at EA Sports like to use Madden, perennially the most realistic football video game, to predict the outcome of the Super Bowl. It's an obvious, easy trick to use the hype for The Big Game to redirect some attention...

Superhot has been looking supercool for a while now; those immediately sold on the initial concept have had to wait for a superlong time. The wait is set to be over supersoon; Superhot will release on Linux, Mac, and Win...

It wasn't enough for Bandai Namco to merely announce that Idolm@ster: Platinum Stars was on its way to PS4 this year, oh no. No, they had to show the thing off in motion today, and I have to say it's looking quite good....

Check out the first hour of Far Cry Primal

Jan 26 // Laura Kate Dale
[embed]336360:61967:0[/embed] As you can see in the above video, there are a few places we had to skip around to keep publishers and PR happy. You don't miss seeing anything important, mainly some running around the map and the lighting of a campfire on the way to walk into a cave.  So, sit back and get an hour's worth of Primal in your face.

Bless these early, monstrous Street Fighter V mods


Put your Birdie face on
Jan 25
// Steven Hansen
Street Fighter V is still a few weeks away. Capcom recently unveiled its plans for the story mode (free post launch DLC) and I had a lengthy interview with producer Yoshinori Ono where we talked about baseball and how Third Strike is the best Street Fighter. But this is all about fans being fans and doing weird mod shit, even with the PC beta. Laura x Birdie looks like an Attack on Titan.
