Well, at least the Bloodborne PS4 faceplate is better than the last two

I was none too impressed with the PlayStation 4's dalliance into customizable faceplates (apparently holding it to the New 3DS standard was unfair, too?). But c'mon, those Order and LittleBigPlanet 3 faceplates were gauche ad...

Report of Netflix's Game of Thrones-style Zelda series 'not based on correct information'

I was so excited for the reported "Game of Thrones for a family audience" Legend of Zelda series that Netflix was producing that I went ahead and wrote up my "dream cast" (SEGA joke) for the series. Looks like my ace tel...

[Update: Here's the trailer. And a July 14 release date. It features "1080p gameplay targeting 60FPS."] God of War III Remastered will be 1080p, on PS4, and, uh, that's it. As much as we know, at least. Sony is expected to r...

Mortal Kombat X punishes quitters with head-exploding Quitalities

Mortal Kombat X recently showed off an Ermac fatality that is actually pretty dang icky. Do check it out if you're not the squeamish sort. Less visceral -- and, wow, isn't it great when a series is so over the top an explodin...

Microsoft-canceled Xbox One Phantom Dust reboot leaked, looks alright

Microsoft announced a reboot of a 10-year-old Xbox cult-classic, Phantom Dust, at its E3 conference last year. This raised a lot of "huh?" and a lot of "uh, ok" (from me included) but people who played the original were excit...

Xbox Store slip confirms Predator for Mortal Kombat X

I've watched Predator, Predator 2, and Predators in the last week at the behest of people who've felt these were good ideas (the first idea was a fine idea, the subsequent decisions less fine). Predator 2 is a mess and Preda...

John Romero's about to make you his pitch for Gunman Taco Truck  photo
John Romero's about to make you his pitch for Gunman Taco Truck
by Steven Hansen

Indie developers make some cool as heck games, but they're not always so great at selling them. We want to them work on their pitch game until they're at Bumgarner levels and we want to take advantage of the the horrible, horrible GDC elevators that get gummed up with folks who don't know you're supposed to walk on the left, stand on the right.

Welcome to another Escalator Pitch. We've gone from pitching classics to meta escalator pitches to, hey, an actual game in development. One from storied id co-founder John Romero (Doom, Quake, Daikatana), who is working on Gunman Taco Truck with Brenda Romero and their sons Michael Romero and Donovan Romero-Brathwaite. The latter thought up the idea.

Oh, hey, Final Fantasy XV has summons and HOLY SHIT

Final Fantasy XIII's summons were ok, but in using the correct party of Fang/Lightning/Vanille, you only get to see a handful (Bahamut, thankfully). And the whole techno Transformers look, while thematically consistent, led ...
