Microsoft's "Games with Gold" initiative has been picking up steam lately, with two games being offered free of charge to Xbox Live Gold members every month since its inception. I usually don't get to benefit from it due to a... more
Survival is a theme that permeates every facet of The Last of Us. This is especially true of the oft overlooked multiplayer component, which eschews the heartfelt tale of the campaign to pit two warring factions against one a... more
Resident Evil 5 has overtaken Street Fighter II as Capcom's best-selling game of all time, CVG reports, having sold 6.5 million copies. Resident Evil 5, you'll remember, is a really dumb game that aped Resident Evil ... more

The Evil Within is going to be hopefully a return to the classic survival horror games we grew up with. That was my thoughts when I first saw the opening act to the game prior to E3 this year. Now you can see what Isaw... more
Either I totally missed it, or it's really about time someone made a Juliet Starling figurine. The chainsaw wielding hero from Lollipop Chainsaw will be getting a 1/8 scale figure, and is available for pre-order right now.
The videogame tie-in for Star Trek Into Darkness was pretty poorly received, and JJ Abrams, the movie's director, is bummed out about it. Well, not about the critical reception; he's in agreement there. He's disappointe... more
Farming out the development of a respected IP can work wonderfully. Just take a look at Dead Rising 2, a solid attempt to follow-up an insanely popular zombie-fest with mostly positive results. Blue Castle Games did such a go... more
Ubisoft has released a 14-minute gameplay demo of Watch Dog's open world. This is exactly the same thing I got to see around E3 time, but now you can see it in action instead of reading my stupid words.
So what exactly can y... more
[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... more
Splinter Cell: Conviction was, in my opinion, a superb new direction for the Splinter Cell series, but a fair few fans were unhappy with the changes Ubisoft made. It's hardly surprising then, that Splinter Cell: Blacklist pul... more
Dead Rising 3's CG trailer is not necessarily stupid in a negative sense. Just in a stupid sense. The beginning was great, though. It says, "Hey, remember Dead Island? LOL ME TOO." Then the lead starts swearing and I was rem... more
This latest Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer reads like the Cliff's Notes to all the previous Blacklist trailers, summarizing the game's various aspects. There's the silly, hyper-organized terrorist attacks on the United Sta... more
While fans of the Disney Afternoon have been anxiously awaiting the release of DuckTales Remastered, Disney had tossed a separate DuckTales-branded game onto iOS devices. It is called DuckTales: Scrooge's Loot, and it is a th... more

Those suffering from coulrophobia look away now. In this new live-action trailer for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, we get another hint of the paranoid flavour of the game's early 1960s setting. Young Kevin is watching his f... more
Yeah, it's a cheesy video but it sure does make me miss when games had live-action cutscenes. Not that I want more games to have live-action stuff again. Oh far from it. I just love watching really bad stuff like this while cringing in my seat.
Anyway, Firefall is now in open beta. It's a free-to-play shooter, go check it out. more
The latest look at Splinter Cell: Blacklist features Sam and team storming a gas plant that's been taken over by terrorists. The place is set to blow, but after a little hacking Sam's team is able to turn on the fire suppres... more
I'm so behind with the Metal Gear Solid series it's bordering on pathetic. Since playing through the famous bait n' switch in MGS 2, I've maybe only given the franchise a few hours of my life.
I made it across to the bri... more
Coming via the PlayStation Blog, Ready at Dawn has confirmed a few details about its upcoming PS4 title, The Order: 1886. For starters, the game is in fact a third-person shooter as some have guessed from the E3 trailer. Sti... more

Hey check it out, it's new gameplay footage for Lost Planet 3! Or is it upcoming DLC for Dead Space 3? I don't know anymore... it's all starting to look the same.
All joking aside, I'm not sure what to think of Lost Planet 3... more
As we reported, Electronic Arts recently swooped up the Star Wars license, announcing several upcoming projects in the process, including a new Battlefront helmed by Battlefield developer DICE. Speaking to IGN, EA Labels pres... more

Firefall will be having its final beta weekend starting at 12:00 PM Pacific this Friday. As with most events like this, there is a new trailer for the game, but it's far from normal. It's some combination of a cooking show, ... more
War has framed. Or something. Man, these names are stupid. Fine. At least this one has character designs that look like aquatic Evangelion monsters. Warframe, from Digital Extremes (The Darkness II, Star Trek: The Video Game... more
Finally, a good look at Killer is Dead's gameplay. The first video here shows off some of the fighting mechanics with your sword and robotic gun arm. Plus we also get to see a boss fight against Hamadayama that starts off wi... more

Deadpool is off visiting the Marvel HQ to promote the Deadpool game. You know, because the Marvel headquarters totally needs to be reminded about his game. Still, it makes for some nice funny bits as he harasses the various ... more
A return to true survival horror. That's what Shinji Mikami, father of Resident Evil, and his new studio, Tango Gameworks, aims to do with The Evil Within. I saw the game in action at an E3 pre-show recently, and they've cert... more
Insomniac turned a lot of heads when it first revealed Overstrike -- a colorful, cartoony, over-the-top cooperative shooter that looked promisingly hilarious. Even more heads turned, but for entirely the wrong reasons, when O... more
The latest barrage of screens for Killer is Dead focuses on two of the bosses you'll encounter in the game. First there's Hamadayama, who rides around on a freaking tiger. Yes, a tiger. How badass is that? Then there's Samura... more
Watch Dogs is a pretty cool game, and if you think you're going to be picking this one up then you may want to take advantage of these pre-order bonuses. GameStop will give you the Palace Pack, which includes an investigation... more
Watch Dogs is giving us a huge open world full of life, all alongside some innovative new multiplayer concepts. And it's all thanks to the new Disrupt engine. The team had some grand visions they wanted to pull off when they ... more
First and foremost, Watch Dogs offers a full single-player experience that you can play offline. That said, I have no intentions of playing offline as the connected experience sounds very promising. Did you know we've actu... more
Watch Dogs has been on everyone's radar ever since its surprise debut at E3 last year. It's an open world game, but what makes this one so unique is that you play as Aiden Pearce, an expert hacker who can control the connecte... more
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will see the return of Spies vs. Mercs. If that news didn't get you excited at all then maybe this live-action take by the gang at CorridorDigital will. Their film production and editing keeps getting better with every video, and I'm beyond impressed with their latest efforts. more
Some lucky folks got a hold of an early uncut version of Conker's Bad Fur Day. The final version of the game removed a bunch of stuff, such as a squirrel getting operated by two Tediz while still conscious.
So what els... more
Deadpool has been a favorite of mine ever since I got into Marvel comics years ago. So I was pretty delighted when High Moon Studios announced it'd be working on a Deadpool game. The studio has done a rather good job with the... more

Confession time ladies and gents: I'm not a big Splinter Cell fan. I didn't much get into the first two, had an inexplicable obsession with Chaos Theory, largely passed on Double Agent, and only dabbled in Conviction.
A disgr... more
I'd tell you everything this new behind the scenes clip of The Last of Us contains but I had to shut it off halfway through.
The enemies -- the focus of the clip -- freak me out too much, which is to say that fungi freaks me... more
We've covered Dontnod's upcoming Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game, Remember Me, a fair bit before, with a meaty first look, a shorter preview and even an interview with the game's creative director, Jean-Max Moris. B... more
Capcom's latest look at Resident Evil Revelations features a few of the developers behind the project as they detail what inspired them to create the new monsters. Basically, the ideas came from real viruses and how dangerou... more

As a life-long Star Trek fan, I was skeptical about the reboot. However, my worries were unfounded as the 2009 film quickly became one of my favorites in the series, and it's attention to what came before while paving a new p... more
Fresh off the news that the new Deadpool game will be launching at a cheaper pricepoint, two new characters have been revealed: Mr. Sinister, and Psylocke. As a major fan of both of them, I hope they have an interesting role ... more
