Princess Ruto looks like one of the coolest characters in Hyrule Warriors

We've seen nearly every other character in action so far in Hyrule Warriors except for the newly announced Sheik, Darunia, and Ruto, and now it's the latter princess' turn to show her stuff. Like Fi, her moves have a bi...

Ubisoft is sending someone to Mt. Everest to play Far Cry 4

I want to play Far Cry 4 and, yeah, scaling a mountain like Everest would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip -- but playing Far Cry 4 *on* Mt. Everest? Not for me, sadly. That said, someone out there -- the one lucky person chosen...

Here's some more details on Bayonetta 2's multiplayer

New details have been announced for Bayonetta 2's multiplayer mode, and it all sounds pretty great. First off, online play is confirmed, as is the ability to play with friends or with a CPU (loving that last option in this on...

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...

The Far Cry 4 devs went to Nepal and watched an animal sacrifice

It's not uncommon for developers to travel to far and distant lands to immerse themselves in the culture that they aim to represent in the videogames they're creating. What is uncommon (I imagine) is to watch a goat get sacr...

Hardline 26: Do we even want another Last of Us?
by Jordan Devore

Electronic Arts has delayed not one but two of its major games originally planned for October 2014 -- Dragon Age: Inquisition is being held back until November, while Battlefield Hardline is now set for early 2015. In this week's episode of Hardline, Steven, Brett, and Bill joined me to discuss that decision, the Destiny beta, and Naughty Dog's comments about how not considering a sequel to The Last of Us "would be a disservice [to the studio and its fans]."

We purposefully went for a shorter run time this week in the hopes that the show would be more easily digestible for those of you watching on YouTube (as opposed to just listening). Actually, we tried to do that last episode too, but it ended up being well over 30 minutes anyway. Whoops.

We did it this time, though. Hope you enjoy!

For the audio-only episode, you can subscribe on iTunes and RSS or download directly.

It looks like 2K has some more BioShock up its sleeve

Many made the reasonable prediction that with the closing of Irrational Games earlier this year, we'd probably seen the last of the BioShock franchise, at least for a bit. That line of thought may prove to have been a bi...

Bungie has just opened the Destiny beta to everyone

So far, the Destiny beta's been gated off from the public-at-large. Well, sort of. A pre-order would grant you access, and registering your code would get you even more codes, so it wasn't too difficult to find a way in. As o...

Google buys Twitch for a billion bucks

Nintendo may think watching Twitch streams is not fun, but a lot of people disagree. Twitch has 50 million active users per month. That's more than the population of California. That's more than 20 times the amount of people ...
