The mutator update is here
"Get back into Rocket League" just jumped to the top of my gaming to-do list.
With the latest update on PC and PlayStation 4, mutators are in! There are a bunch of specifics to dig through -- and I've included the full patch ...
The Wii U is sexier
Security camera footage of an unknown man having a wank in front of a PlayStation 4 display has been leaked online, and now here it is for you to watch, if you're into that kind of thing. You won't see much skin, so no worri...
Ah, the memories
I don't know why fatherhood has become such a prevalent theme among indie games lately, but I like it. There was Octodad, then Dad by the Sword, then Dad Beat Dads. Now there is Dad Quest, and it reminds me a lot of my own ch...
Or if you like vanishing from clothes
In a week's time, a lot of people will be transported to the battlefields of Star Wars Battlefront. EA is expecting around 13 million, in fact. All those folks living out the Star Wars fantasy before shuffling off to th...
A lot of alien influences
Another Did You Know Gaming is out, and it celebrates the real life influences that are found in Pokemon. I think my favorite bit is how Sableye is basically an eyewitness account by a Kentucky family who thought they were v...
Just in case you hate reading
Looks like it's about that time again, Chris the Miracle Worker has managed to review a relatively little known game called Fallout 4. That said, who the hell reads reviews nowadays? So much time and reading text and you hav...
Number crunching is a standard pastime for RPG fans, especially for those of you who can't play games at work, and avidly theorycraft the day away until you can get home to the latest adventure. Fallout 4, like past entries,...
Beginning spoilers, obviously
As is the case with nearly any RPG, it's best to go into Fallout 4 blind. But if you're undecided, or aren't picking up the game until the inevitable GOTY edition, here's the first 30 minutes of the game for your perusal.
It covers the entire intro, before your character is allowed to explore the new open world.
There's a lot to take in
Fallout games are convenient in that each of the stories are independent of one another. That is to say, you don't need to have played Fallout 3 to understand and enjoy Fallout 4. However, there is quite a lot of b...
You know, for the veterans
The United States of America, right? Where our burgers are big and our guns are bigger. And our heart failures are spectacular. Or something. Let's start over.
Carl's Jr. (also known as Hardee's) is teaming up with Activision...
In a good way
Recently, I forgot that Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem (known as Genei Ibun Roku FE in Japan) existed, but a new series of videos from Nintendo have reignited my interest. Highlights from this newest promotion in...
Pretty fun new Hey Ash, Watcha Playin' this week with a Banjoe-Kazooie twist. And way more nudity and animalistic sexuality and bloody eggholes. Plus funny voices! I want a gritty, AAA release, like a Witcher 3 or whatever, ...
Mario Maker easter egg
Super Mario Maker got an important update last night. My focus was drawn to the new costumes and much-needed ability to lay down checkpoints in levels, but Nintendo also slipped in an easter egg. It's super easy to access, bu...
Star Wars: First Assault
There's Star Wars: Battlefront III. There's Star Wars 1313. There's even that Darth Maul game. But no one mourns Star Wars: First Assault.
According to the YouTube description, "This was a tech beta ran on Xbox Live a while ...
And possibly more, you tourist
Most everyone who is interested in Star Wars Battlefront has a good idea by now if they're buying it. The open beta last month served as a nice test run in that sense. We've all had an opportunity to see what we're gett...
Hyrule Warriors Legends
Pulling a reverse Smash Bros., Hyrule Warriors launched on the Wii U last year and is getting an updated version on 3DS, Hyrule Warrios Legends, sometime next year. It's January 21 in Japan, first quarter 2016 for America an...
Some free, some paid
Rainbow Six Siege releases on December 1, but Ubisoft wants people playing well into 2016. In a post over on the Ubiblog, the studio shows off its Year One Roadmap and details its plans for downloadable content.
In the wake o...
Street Fighter Alpha nod
A recent 2.3GB update for PlayStation 4 users engaged in the Street Fighter V beta adds a tutorial, going over fighting game fundamentals (walk towards your opponent to do fighting with them et al) and SFV moves like V-Skill...
Just like the original Black Ops, there's a hidden arcade game locked within Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It's actually quite easy to access (just select the top-left icon in the video on the mission hub screen), and like its...
Most likely will not care
Activision's in the fortuitous position with Call of Duty where the fanbase is so large that they haven't all adopted current-gen consoles yet. But, that means it's mostly obligated to keep releasing games on legacy sys...
It's a small tidbit of gameplay, but this teaser from Koei Tecmo will give you an idea of what the new Attack on Titan [working title] game will look like. This will be their first "lead platform" PS4 game, so I'm expec...
Smashing the Battle
A new, comic book styled 3D action game was announced at the recent Sony Korea press conference. Smashing the Battle comes from one-man Korean developer Studio HG. It started life as a mobile game, but a PS4 version is in th...
The more I see of Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, the more I want to wait for an eventual sale. I've played a little, and it does feels good, but my concerns about Camelot not breaking enough new ground persist. There are also too...
Just like what's in her name!
The final "Woman vs. Wild" Rise of the Tomb Raider video has been released and it focuses on the thing many thought the reboot lacked: tombs what to raid. Lara actually does way more archaeology this time around, it seems.
And, Sam Lake with his fist in his mouth
Sam Lake, head of Remedy, would rather it be his fist in his mouth than his foot in his mouth. Remedy's next title can't afford that kind of blunder. "Quantum Break needs to be awesome," he says in this video produced b...
Looks pretty cool
In the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there was a striking shot of Rey speeding past a long-abandoned Star Destroyer. The scene takes place on a desert planet, Jakku, and the massive ship crash landed...
Adjust monogrammed towels accordingly
Just a bit of housekeeping. The new Mewtwo form copped over the weekend is officially Shadow Mewtwo, not Dark Mewtwo as early sleuths sussed. Makes sense what with its "Shadow ___" moves.
Not too much else revealed in the ch...
No relation to Glitch in the System
Epic has been working on Fortnite for a while, but that's not the only title the studio has up its sleeve. Today, it announced Paragon along with a teaser video featuring a guy who kind of looks like if DmC's Dante got buff a...
You shouldn't, but you could
While on one hand I don't understand purchasing a smart watch or most "wearable" tech, on the other, I have to admit amusement at one of these devices -- an older model, to boot -- being capable of running N64 games.
Behind-the-scenes video translated
Few trailers rival the "Nuclear" video for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. I must've watched it half a dozen times when it debuted last year at E3, and probably doubled that number leading up to the game's release in Se...
