This modular PS4 controller charge station makes perfect sense

Where do you put your controllers when you're done with them? I tried one of those cloth- lined baskets, but I found that unless I laid them in there very carefully I'd accidentally hit buttons, turning all of my consoles on....

Get a load of the wares that BE-S Co. Ltd. plans to show at Tokyo Game Show 2014 next month. The novelty gaming accessories company has three products to show and sell at TGS, and I'm sure I want them all. First, the Humanoid...

Look at all the crazy stuff that comes in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collector's edition

You thought you were just buying a game, but if you're getting the Xbox One Collector's Edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you're getting all kinds of good junk. Not one, but two card decks, a medallion, stickers, maps, an ...

Crookz puts a '70s heist movie spin on tactical gaming photo
Crookz puts a '70s heist movie spin on tactical gaming
by Dale North

A tactical game with a '70s heist movie theme? Finding something like that at gamescom is about as unlikely as finding a videogame trailer with porn star Ron Jeremy in it. But here we are with both.

California is not an island, but here are my Dead Island 2 impressions photo
California is not an island, but here are my Dead Island 2 impressions
by Dale North

You'll be able to explore Los Angeles, Santa Monica, some beaches, a golf course, and maybe even more in the final version of Dead Island 2. But what Deep Silver was showing at gamescom 2014 was pretty limited. I only got to run around a small, closed-off section of the Los Angeles suburbs. It was a short taste of what the Southern California zombie-slaughtering life is like.

These Japanese ladies playing P.T. are the best

Check out these Japanese ladies playing the P.T. "interactive trailer" that was released this week at gamescom. I think they're all hilarious but I love the face the one lady makes at 0:46. She's like, oh sh*t. Then, oh SH*T. And then there's the one lady later on that gives no f*cks at all. She's also great.

Until Dawn has hundreds of endings and thousands of branches photo
Until Dawn has hundreds of endings and thousands of branches
by Dale North

Supermassive Games' Pete Samuels and Will Byles held a behind-closed-doors session during gamescom to give us a better look into upcoming PS4 horror title Until Dawn. During that session they explained how their PS3 Move-only campy teen horror title transformed into a PS4 adult horror, starring top-tier actors and featuring high-end technologies.

Until Dawn is all about player choice, offering thousands of play paths that lead to hundreds of possible endings. A lot of this is tied to one of the game's mechanics called the Butterfly Effect.

Mordor Shatitself?

Here are some of the weird and neat things we found running around the gamescom show floor today. I don't even know what's going on with those noodles.

It would take you 4,000 years to see repetition in No Man's Sky

At a gamescom presentation today, Sean Murray from Hello Games wanted to give his comeback to a "guy in the comments" that goes against his claim that the universe of upcoming game No Man's Sky is infinite. The comments ...

Bloodborne's HUD has dedicated healing items in their own slot

In a gamescom behind-closed-doors showing, we got a good explanation of what is going on in Bloodborne's HUD. That top red bar is a health gauge, and the green one underneath it is a stamina gauge. Nothing new there except fo...

Bloodborne's health regaining system detailed

A new system for upcoming From Software PS4 title Bloodborne was revealed at gamescom today in a behind-closed-doors meeting. It's called the Regain System, and it lets you recover health after taking a hit.  It's not as easy as it sounds to get your health back, though.

Digging deeper into The Tomorrow Children

At a gamescom briefing today, Dylan Cuthbert of Q-Games showed off their brand collaboration with Sony Studios Japan for the first time. PS4 title The Tomorrow Children (temporary title) is quite different from Q-Games' other titles, but it does share their trademark creativity and imagination.

It's...pretty weird.

Here's a better look at that Sunset Overdrive White Xbox One

My Xbox One already looks dirty. Scummy, even. It's not just the fingerprints and dust in the grooves, either. I don't know what they did with their plastics or build or whatever, but mine looks like hell and it hasn't even b...

The Halo Channel is a thing (Update)

[Update: Trailer now included.] At Microsoft's press conference, right after talking a bit about the upcoming Halo: The Master Chief Collection, 343 took the stage to reveal The Halo Channel. It's for watching "all things Halo," including shows, streams, and recorded play. It's like Mario Kart TV. Kind of. A partnership with Twitch for the channel was also announced.
