Boy, Metal Gear Online. I sure forget about that in a hurry.

Big changes for Season 3

Put baby in the corner
If there is one thing you can say about the Street Fighter series, it knows how to make attractive trailers out of boring info. I've enjoyed watching slickly produced videos about training mode options and network settings si...
Let's change it up in here
2009's Ghostbusters: The Video Game was a pleasant return to the ghoul-infested New York City, and it sounds like we'll have another chance to get bustin' this year. What remains unclear is whether it'll feature the cast...
'These people are your responsibility!'
Homecoming was the Hollywood take on Silent Hill. All crisp and clean, with a Jensen Ackles-type in the lead, and a straightforward plot that paid more homage to Dean Koontz’s Phantoms than Koji Suzuki’s Dark Wate...
But I want to be BB-8!
While we've known since last month that Star Wars Battlefront is going to focus on the original trilogy for this release in the series, we didn't know exactly why. An EA earnings call (via VideoGamer) has shed some light on w...
XCOM 2 discounts sighted
Oh, you thought you saved humanity when you beat XCOM: Enemy Unknown? Nope! XCOM 2 says you didn't (or at least that humanity surrendered at some point). Come next week Friday we'll all be forced to reverse the fortunes ...
Now coming in late April
Stranger of Sword City's PlayStation Vita release is being pushed back a month.
Initially planned for a late March debut, the portable dungeon crawler is now expected to arrive in North America on April 26. A E...
Hit them with a bat.
Ninja Baseball Bat Man is not a baseball game. It also has nothing to do with Batman. It's actually a wacky arcade beat-'em-up released in 1993 by Irem (maker of R-Type). You might assume it's just another example of Japanese...
For PS3 and Vita

Some people are stuck waiting
Ubisoft says it "can no longer guarantee access" to this weekend's closed beta for Tom Clancy's The Division due to "unprecedented demand."
"If you have already pre-ordered The Division and have yet to receive your key, we'r...
Humans are filthy, dirty filthy

Please forgive me
When I typed up that post about Hellblade's newest developer video, something jumped out at me: director Tameem Antoniades' hat. I made a mental note to mention it, but then ended up focusing on the motion capture. I've made ...
The Chinese New Year is rapidly approaching, beginning on February 8 (thanks, Wikipedia!), just little more than a week away. Microsoft commissioned eight local artists from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan to design Xbox Ones to...
Popularity isn't always a good thing
The Witness is very popular this week, but popularity and revenue don't always correlate directly. There's a whole subset of people out there who prefer to get their games through nefarious, illegal means and The Witness...
This freakin' game
I've been following Great Detective Pikachu for years, and what a journey it has been.
There was a time when we just had a scant few seconds of nightmarish facial-capture footage to go on for the 3DS game and even then, in it...
Still seems like a fun job
I'm quietly anticipating Ninja Theory's Hellblade, and its transparent development videos have been stoking that fire. I always enjoy watching how games are made, and confirming that I know dick about the process.
In this lat...
And race tracks for your buggy, too!
There's little more than a week until Dying Light: The Following releases and we can all start drop-kicking the undead off of buildings again. Adding to an already steady flow of pre-release footage, Techland is showing ...
Game with the Ninjatoid Community!
Huh. That thing kind of freaks me out... yet... deep down, I want to stick the D in it. I wonder if it has teeth? Hrm. Moving on...
How is everyone this week? Doing good? Ready to play some games together? Sign up below if y...
WB always finds out, bro
The MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) is intimidating, to say the least. In addition to all of the feature films there's also official tie-in comics, one-shot short films, multiple sequels that set up sequels, and now, eight separate television shows with multiple seasons across two networks.
If you haven't been at least following the movies, LEGO Marvel's Avengers probably isn't for you.
Let's go live there
It seems like it's been forever since we last checked in on Stardew Valley, a pixel art farming life simulator/role-playing game that evokes memories of Harvest Moon in those fortunate enough to have played it in its prime (o...
This is Rocky VIII
Things are popping off in the hip hop world this week.
Kanye lied about not liking his ass eaten after a deluge of tweet beef with Wiz Khalifa. Kanye eventually deleted the 20 or so tweets aimed at Khalifa, but they still ex...
To start the land is purely plain and flatBut earthy blocks then fall down from the skyTake care in where they are placed on the matMake sure you never build it up too high

I live in New Jersey, so I think I know a thing or two about California. After all, I've listened to plenty of N.W.A. and Tupac, plus I've seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
Oh, and I've been to California a whole lot to visit my brother and for that one E3 I attended. Does this make me an expert? Yes. Yes it does.
With a 50th-year birthday soon-ish
Star Trek Online turns six years old this week, and it's time for developer Cryptic to celebrate the fact as is the custom: By holding its yearly anniversary event.
Players that log in between now and February 24th can p...
"It's so hard to believe this is real. It's like a video game or something." A random soldier told me this in Bombshell and it's not the worst meta dialogue in the game. Shelly "Bombshell" Harrison is quick to complain about ...
