Lords of the Fallen trailer: Lustful women and a moody CCR cover

Lords of the Fallen sits somewhere between Darksiders (#darksiders2) and Dark Souls. The trailer, with the God of War-styled heavy petting foursome, leans toward the former.  With the trailer comes the announcement that those who pre-order get bumped up to a Limited Edition, which just means some weapons, The Monk's Decipher DLC, and a soundtrack.

You can't be a 'white savior dudebro' in Screencheat because you're invisible

Screencheat offers a new twist on the first-person genre. Players are invisible and the only way to gauge where an enemy is located is to look at their screen. The game will feature two-to-four player splitscreen, even when ...

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun.

Nintendo checks in with Capcom, confirms Battle Network VC release photo
Nintendo checks in with Capcom, confirms Battle Network VC release
by Chris Carter

Nintendo took a minute (well, 15 actually) to check in with Capcom in a decidedly Mega Man themed Nintendo Minute. Speaking to Brett Elston of Capcom, they chatted a bit about recent Mega Man merch, as well as the newest game to hit the Virtual Console -- Mega Man Battle Network, which has already dropped in Europe and is set to hit the US on July 31.

Man, how cool would it be if Nintendo bought Capcom and gave Mega Man the care he needs? Also, how lucrative would a Nintendo exclusive Monster Hunter franchise be over time if it owned the entire IP? It's a match made in heaven.

Video: Wilhelm is like a Terminator on rocket skates in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
by Bill Zoeker

Back with more impressions from playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I had some first-hand playtime with the cybernetic tough guy, Wilhelm the Enforcer, which I would like to relate to you with my mouth. Wilhelm may not be all he's cracked up to be, yet. But he's got a couple of interesting surprises.

NHL 15 flaunts its alliteration with the Superstar Skill Stick

Slapshots from the point, cheeky tip-ins, and wristers through traffic are all perfectly fine, but when you play an NHL game, you want to embarrass your opponent. You want them going to get their jock out of the rafters...

Channel your inner rock star and smash up a hotel in Check-in, Knock-out

Breaking other people's things is expensive. I don't suggest you do it unless you have a lot of money. If you have that itch, a better way to live out the fantasy may be to destroy hotel rooms in Check-in, Knock-out. A newly...
