Battlefield 4's 'Levolution' is such a horrible buzzword

Levolution. It sounds like someone with a lisp trying to say revolution. Well anyway, that's the marketing buzzword Electronic Arts is pushing like crazy, and while the name is stupid the tech behind it looks cool. The newes...

Destiny looks so goddamn gorgeous

Murasaki Baby is strange and wonderful

PlayStation Vita title Murasaki Baby looked to be pretty dark and twisted in its debut trailer at Sony's gamescom press conference earlier this week. Now that I've played it, I'd say that it isn't quite as dark as it first ca...

I'm starting to come around on Dead Rising 3

[Update: Footage has returned as part of a giant montage of Xbox games.] No, really. I'm starting to like Dead Rising 3 with more footage we see. I was kind of turned off with the game at E3, largely because of the framerate...

I love the fashion in Lightning Returns: FF XIII
