Remedy has an on-the-nose punishment for Quantum Break pirates

If pirates are going to act the part, they may as well look the part too. That's apparently a mantra over at Remedy Entertainment. People who are running an unlicensed copy of Quantum Break are finding themselves with a brand new acces...

You're gonna lose that foot: Here's the Gears of War 4 box art

Cover art posts are usually boring, but this one's straight-up dangerous. The trench foot is an underrated concern in today's Apple Watch-wearing, Uber-riding society. But, stand in a puddle too long? Lop it off, doc. Those dogs ain't barki...

Gears of War 4 hitting Xbox One on October 11 worldwide

Earlier this year we heard about a vague bump in Gears of War 4's release window, from holiday 2016 to fall 2016. Today we have some more specificity: Gears of War 4 is releasing on October 11 of this year. For those unwilling and/or incapa...

 
Quantum Break review
Quantum Break is a video game that is not comfortable being only a video game. Born from Microsoft's now-abandoned cross-media initiative, Quantum Break is many things, only a fraction of them being a video game. It...   read

Xbox thinks Quantum Break might be a 'mega hit'

It's always suspect when a publisher claims that a not-yet-released game is going to be a success. They have a vested interest in the game selling well, so it behooves them to drum up even more excitement. Xbox is speculating that Quantum B...

Check out Quantum Break's live-action show

Quantum Break hits next week, April 5, on PC (Windows 10 only) and Xbox One. Remedy's time travel shooter didn't sit right with me for years dating back to when I saw the game at E3 2013, but a recent preview event allayed those concerns, ...

Uncharted 4 video extols the power of the PS4

I have to admit I was pretty jazzed about technical powering Uncharted: Drake's Fortune leading up to its PlayStation 3 release. Little details from water physics (and Drake's varying levels of dampness when submerged) to loads of variable...

 
Sniper Elite 4 preview
For whatever reason -- perhaps through no fault of its own -- I can't help but see the workings of other games when I look at Sniper Elite. Rube Goldberg-lite environmental executions remind me of Hitman. Third-person stealth...   read

Quantum Break finds Nirvana but not peace

Although it won't launch for another three weeks, Quantum Break has a launch trailer. That's the weird dilution of terminology in the games industry today -- words used because they sound good and not because they're accurate. Really,...

Eat rats

Ubisoft Presents Steven Hansen's Tom Clancy's The Division is an MMO-lite a la Destiny, but that doesn't mean it can't bring in some moral choice flavor dialogue. Eats rats or starve!

The Division: Best waiting-in-line sim of 2016?

Gears of War 4 proves Marcus Fenix actually had sex

You might think late-game John Travolta lookalike and longtime Gears of War star Marcus Fenix never made it to pound town on account of being a ghastly, thick-necked meathead, but Fenix did indeed get his dick wet, free of protection, proba...

Xbox has the rights to The Division's DLC exclusivity

Quantum Break sure has changed over the last four years

I haven't been following Quantum Break too closely, even though I love Max Payne and Alan Wake. What I've seen so far has felt a bit generic, lifeless, and grey, so I'm hoping that Remedy's traditional bizarre touch is h...

 
Review: Fortified

We might get Gears of War 4 a little sooner than anticipated
