Brendan Fraser wouldn't like this next Killer Instinct Season 2 character

Kan-Ra seems about as menacing as an Saturday morning cartoon villain, but that's why I like him. The mummy sorcerer is next in line for Season 2 of Killer Instinct. He'll be available first for Ultra Edition ($39.99) player...

Ubisoft aims to draw kids into the Assassin's Creed brand

Ubisoft owns one of the most popular videogame properties in Assassin's Creed, but that's not stopping it from trying to extend the series' appeal to an audience that some might frown upon -- children. That's the publisher's ...

Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal photo
Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal
by Chris Carter

While Sonic Boom on the Wii U has its issues, there are also some redeeming qualities. Co-op is enjoyable, the platforming is pretty fun, and the 2D sections aren't bad. With a few more months in the oven and more polish, it could have ultimately been a decent Sonic title.

Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 3DS version of Sonic Boom. There's almost nothing redeeming about it.

Destiny expansion video teases what players will find in The Dark Below

We have known for a little while that the first expansion to Destiny would be called The Dark Below, and that it would add a healthy-sounding chunk of content. Bungie has now released a trailer showing off the moon excavatio...

Here are all the amiibo waves and figures we know about

The amiibo figures out today, and in some locations, they're selling out. While Villager and Wii Fit Trainer seem to be two of the rarer figures, Marth is decidedly the one to look for, as he's currently going for $30 on Ama...

Maybe Evolution should focus on getting Driveclub to work instead of free DLC

We're rapidly approaching the two-month anniversary of Evolution Studios' Driveclub's release. What makes this significant is that the multiplayer component of the game doesn't consistently work. Two. Months. Later. We won't ...

Ashen Rift returns to Kickstarter looking better than ever

Gold subscribers can play Sunset Overdrive for free tomorrow
by Jordan Devore

So here's a cool thing: Microsoft and Insomniac are opening up Sunset Overdrive for Xbox Live Gold subscribers for 24 hours. The punk-rock shooter will be free to play -- the whole game, including co-op -- from 12:01am Eastern tomorrow to 12:01am Eastern on Sunday, November 23.

Should you decide to buy Sunset after the trial ends, you can pick up where you left off. Also, Achievements can be earned during this extended demo if you're still into earning those.

Great offer and I hope there are more to come.

Want to watch a 12-minute Guilty Gear Xrd trailer?

For some games that have elaborate stories or lots of spoiler points, I tend to avoid any and all coverage if possible. I like going in completely blind, like the bosses of the Souls series for example. For oher titles,...

Just how rare are some of Nintendo's amiibo toys at launch? photo
Just how rare are some of Nintendo's amiibo toys at launch?
by Chris Carter

While Nintendo provided me with the Link, Mario, and Kirby amiibo toys for testing with Super Smash Bros., acquiring the rest of the lot was completely up to me. So I decided to take a trip early this morning, survey any potential crowds, and see what I could get. I ended up nabbing the rest of the ones I needed, with some trouble.

I started off at GameStop (though there was a midnight release party there), and headed to Toys"R"Us, followed by two Targets and two Best Buy stores. Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, and Pikachu were all readily available at all locations. Every store I went to (seven in total) had at least 30 units in stock for those characters. Peach and Kirby seemed more rare, but there were at least 15 units each. You should be good to go on all of the above for a few days if you can't get to the store this morning.

The Final Fantasy XV demo will be roughly two hours

Final Fantasy XV is looking pretty great overall. I'm really digging the outlandish bro-fest road trip vibe, and the visual style looks sharp as hell. To get a taste, Square Enix has a promotion where you'll be able to ...

'Free to get?' Apple changes iTunes 'free' buttons to 'get'

While pretty much everyone reading this knows that "free" is a misnomer in the mobile arena, a lot of people probably aren't aware that when they download a "free" game, the vast majority of the content can be gated off by IA...
