What we know about Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Director del Toro says Silent Hills isn't going to happen

PC Port Report: Grand Theft Auto V




It's an interesting world we live in, where games with titles such as Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 and the near-future Call of Duty: Black Ops II end up looking more "out there" when it comes to future warfare than...


Crystal Dynamics' next Tomb Raider title has been moved from its crowded Fall 2012 slot to "the first quarter of 2013," studio head Darrell Gallagher announced. The official reason behind the delay is the usual rationale of p...


Your name is Hasbro and you own the rights to a well-known board game, centered about guessing where the opponent's ships are. What do you do? Naturally, you let Universal turn it into a blockbuster marketed to look like Mich...


Endless Space appeared as a pre-order item on Steam's front page the other day, and having "space" in the title means I immediately click on it. From the looks of it, it should appear familiar enough to fans of 4X space stra...




Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) titles have seen an enormous surge in popularity in recent years, and for good reason, but to date they've been restricted to the PC. These highly skill-based, competitive games offer th...


Yep, another Kickstarter. I know, we also got tired of them and that was well before Double Fine Adventure changed the game. As a result, I completely glossed over a few press releases for Starlight Inception, which may have...


Despite publisher dtp entertainment filing for insolvency last Friday, Ronimo has announced that Awesomenauts will still be released this week, as planned. Hurray! The PlayStation Network version is free for PS Plus subscribe...


The excellent Toy Soldiers: Cold War recently received two pieces of downloadable content in the form of the Soviet-centered "Evil Empire" and the Vietnam-focused "Napalm" expansions. While Toy Soldiers fans will likely want ...


One part hack, one part slash, and one part four-player cooperative Fable with puppet heroes. Fable Heroes would be the last thing you would expect Lionhead Studios to come up with if Fable: The Journey hadn't been announced already. In true Lionhead fashion, Fable Heroes is a game that made me feel emotions I hadn't felt in more than a year, but perhaps not the kind that it intended to elicit.


German publisher dtp entertainment AG, best known and outside of Germany for publishing Venetica, The Cursed Crusade, and Ronimo Games' upcoming Awesomenauts, has filed for insolvency, IGN reports. This comes as especially tr...


The ever-maturing downloadable space has allowed for some rather niche genres to find their audience. From The Legend of Grimrock to Lone Survivor, players can find new games for their favorite genres for a price that's hard to argue with. Enter The Pinball Arcade, the latest pinball simulation game by FarSight Studios, who are probably best known for their Pinball Hall of Fame titles.


The second piece of downloadable content in the Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning saga has arrived to further pad your already ridiculous list of quests. The previous DLC, "The Legend of Dead Kel," was a varied and fun adventure ...


The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings releases to a new audience this week, and Xbox 360 owners have a lot to look forward to. It's a role-playing game full of decisions that can impact the story's development throughout the game...


It's been almost a year now since The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was released on PC. Built upon an engine with multiplatform support in mind, a console version was inevitable. Outsourcing a port for the first The Witcher d...


Warballoon's Star Command seems to be shaping up rather nicely. As one of those games that got Kickstarted before it was cool, it missed its initial planned release of late last year, but it is currently planned for a Summer...


After Haemimont rejuvenated the Tropico series with Tropico 3 and its Absolute Power expansion, Tropico 4 ended up being another great city builder, if not a huge leap forward for the series. While the changes to gameplay and...


11 bit Studios' Anomaly Warzone Earth was a creative little "tower offense" title, and a big hit on PC and mobile last year. Now it has finally been released on Xbox Live Arcade. Mouse and keyboard controls are out, full game...


Following a few ramshackle E3 presentations, expectations for Kinect Star Wars were tempered at best. After footage of the game's Galactic Dance Off mode, featuring a dancing Han Solo at the carbonite pit, hit YouTube, these ...


A set of new achievements already hinted at new downloadable content for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, set in the Teeth of Naros area. EA and 38 Studios have now officially annouced the DLC to be titled "Teeth of Naros," a l...


Combat flight simulators, like real-time strategy games, are a resilient breed which has always struggled to find its place on consoles. A mouse and keyboard control scheme is almost always preferred over a gamepad when it co...


Before working on games like SkyDrift, Sine Mora, and Black Knight Sword, Digital Reality was best known for their excellent 4X titles. Arguably the best of their space empire strategy games, Imperium Galactica II, is now av...


Dutch indie studio Ronimo Games has unveiled the release date for the rather excellent-looking Awesomenauts. The 2D Multiplayer Online Battle Arena title will hit the PlayStation Store in North America on May 1, 2012. On May...


One of the reasons why I picked up a PlayStation Vita, other than submitting to gadget lust, was the prospect of catching up on those games I had missed out on by never owning a PSP. Some great titles, like Patapon 2, Half Mi...


Just in time for the start of Season 2 of Game of Thrones, Atlus and Focus Home Interactive unleashed a new "epic plot" trailer for Cyanide's upcoming role-playing game. After watching the trailer four times, I still have no...


A list of achievements for yet to be announced downloadable content for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has appeared on Xbox 360 Achievements. The five achievements look similar in nature to those found in the recently released...


Why yes, there is such a thing as the Canadian Video Game Awards! The 3rd annual edition of the awards show will take place in Vancouver on April 21st, and coincides with Fan Expo Vancouver (limited seating available to Fan E...


Like so many "older" gamers who grew up during the X-COM glory days of turn-based strategy almost 20 years ago, the folks at Parisian indie studio Brain Candy have been craving some good old TBS action. Not just any kind, bec...


One might wonder if a game like Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning really needs a downloadable content expansion along the lines of "The Legend of Dead Kel," given the enormous amount of quests and content already available i...


The ill-fated BioShock movie has seemingly been Halo'd. Gore Verbinski had already stepped down to become the project's producer, leaving Juan Carlor Fresnadillo to fill the director seat. Speaking to Indiewire, Fresnadillo s...


Based on the tabletop wargame, Cyanide's Confrontation brings the fantasy world of Aarklash to the virtual realm. The over-productive French studio which used to primarily work on the Cycling Manager series has diversified it...


Xbox Live Indie title Nyan Cat Adventure is now available for iOS. A free version gives you the basic "Party" mode and the traditional Nyan Cat to play with, while the $0.99 version gives you more Nyans and more modes. I gave it a spin to see what has changed from 21st Street Games' XBLIG version, and to see whether or not it still induces seizures on the smaller screen real estate.


"Aaaargh!" is an exclamation often associated with pre-order and "day one" bonus downloadable content. You end up with an extra character, skin, or a weapon or two, often followed by Internet outcry when some of that content ...


In their GDC session "Creative Panic: How Agility Turned Terror Into Triumph," Double Fine's Tim Schafer, Brad Muir, Lee Petty, and Nathan Martz talked about how they used a two-week break during Brütal Legend's producti...


Years in the making at different studios, Ubisoft's I Am Alive brings the Xbox Live Arcade "House Party" to a close with a post-apocalyptic bang. A story of survival, it's full of ideas and twists on the action-adventure conv...


Growing up during the dawn of PC strategy games, playing everything from Dune II and Command & Conquer to Panzer General, took its toll on my teenage years. History classes only became worth paying attention to when it co...


Wargame: European Escalation was released for PC yesterday. After failing at a certain mission and losing momentum, leading to a 1.5-hour mission, I realized there are a couple of ways to play this game if you've played many ...


[In "Dat DLC," we check out some recent downloadable content to give you an impression of what you may or may not have missed out on.] After tinkering with the gender-swapped versions of the existing four young heroes in Dun...


We saw a brief Mass Effect 3 CG trailer last weekend, which Jonathan Holmes didn't care for because he hates good videogames. Now we have the full extended cut version with even more dramatic Earthlings who fight for the least interesting planet in the Mass Effect universe! I guess nobody would give a damn if it was the Volus home world that was invaded in a trailer, eh? Two more weeks...


Ask any fan why they like Alan Wake, and you'll hear different stories. Some will talk about how they enjoyed the Stephen King, Twin Peaks, and Lost inspired storyline and setting. Others will laud the tense experience on the...


Xbox Live Arcade's House Party kicked off with Warp, a stealth-centric puzzle-platforming title with a charming yet violent aesthetic. With a somewhat creative way of adding a breath of fresh air to the top-down stealth genre...
