Dying Light

Dying Light just made surviving the zombie apocalypse a whole lot tougher


Oh, great
Mar 11
When it comes to zombie outbreaks, it'd be foolish to go looking for a challenge. The easier you have it, the better. Why make a mockery of fate and scream "Come at me, bro?" It may be ill-advised, but Techland's giving thos... read
Mad Max

Mad Max is releasing the same week as MGS V


PS3 and Xbox 360 versions dropped
Mar 03
How unfortunate. Warner Bros. and Avalanche Studios announced the release date for Mad Max on PC, PS4, and Xbox One: September 1 in North America, the same as Metal Gear Solid V, and September 4 in the United Kingdom. Also, t... read
MK X story trailer

There is a lot to unpack from this Mortal Kombat X story trailer


It's like a very bloody version of Where's Waldo
Feb 27
Ostensibly this story trailer for Mortal Kombat X is supposed to set the stage for the latest generation of Earthrealm warriors' struggle against the forces of Outworld, but we all know what the real hype is about -- charact... read
Batman trailer

Get possessive over Gotham in this Batman: Arkham Knight trailer


The darkest bright
Feb 25
The upcoming, M-rated end to Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy has a lovely new trailer out today. And this one isn't polished, artsy CG the series is known for. Some well cut in-game footage, a view of the rogues gallery teaming ... read
Bright Lord

Shadow of Mordor's newest DLC has you wearing rings and fighting Sauron


Yeah, THAT ring
Feb 24
Leagues of Uruks fell by your doing in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor -- just an unacceptable amount of dead orcs, really. Sure, that was gratifying in its own way, but a pile of orcs doesn't carry the same weight as someone... read
Mature Bats

Batman: Arkham Knight has an M rating


For, you know, Mature
Feb 24
The end of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, squeaked by with a PG-13, but it looks like Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy didn't have the same luck. Arkham Knight director Sefton Hill told IGN that the gam... read
Mortal Kombat X

I bet you'd like some Predator in your Mortal Kombat X


I'd like some Predator in everything, to be honest
Feb 18
If you see a tell-tale shimmer in Mortal Kombat X come June, you should be concerned. It only means that the perfect hunting specimen is after you, and there's a good chance that death is mere seconds away -- even for th... read
Two more months. Just two more months. That's what I have to keep telling myself while agonizing over the release of Mortal Kombat X. As someone who logged nearly 7,000 matches into the last Mortal Kombat, and still plays Injustice from time to time, any new info is good news, and NetherRealm has recently dropped a lot of details on the game's online modes. Let's dig in. read feature

Goro bling

Holy crap, check out the neon Goro hiding out behind Ed Boon!


Oh yeah, also something about faction wars and challenge towers? I don't know, I got distracted.
Feb 06
You know, developers are always looking for pre-order bonuses and special edition swag to get us to buy-in early. They'll hold popular character hostage for a pre-order or contract out an art design house to build a spe... read
Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X's system requirements won't be a fatality for your PC


Not compared to most games, anyway
Feb 04
If the top-tier collector's edition is a bit of a brutal finisher move to your wallet, Mortal Kombat X's recommended PC specs are more akin to a Friendship. Well, that is, compared to the outlandish requirements by the bulk o... read
LEGO Jurassic World

Confirmed! You can play as dinosaurs in LEGO Jurassic World


Dino-mite
Feb 04
"Imagine playing as the ominous LEGO T. rex, roaming the grounds of Isla Nublar, smashing LEGO bricks and battling with other dinosaurs -- this game is bound to bring out the kid in all of us," says TT Games managing direc... read
Mortal Kombat X

Four Mortal Kombat X special editions worth fighting for


And you just might kill someone for that Scorpion statue

Dying Light DMCAs mods

Techland using DMCA claims to take down Dying Light mods (Update)


Sorry, no nude zombies
Feb 01
[Update: Techland says it did not intend to create "obstacles" for modders. "With the recent patch (1.2.1) on Steam we blocked cheating to make sure the game's PvP system (Be The Zombie) would not be abused. This, however, ha... read

This latest round of LEGO games will do wonders for Brett's Gamerscore. Several titles are releasing in 2015, including LEGO Jurassic World, which hits in June and spans all four films, and LEGO Marvel's Avengers, which is ou... read
Reptile Mortal Kombat

Reptile confirmed to return in Mortal Kombat X


'I will tear your flesh'
Jan 27
Yeah, like Reptile wasn't going to make the cut.  NetherRealm unveiled the lizard-like ninja in a trailer today, showcasing his scaly new look and classic moves on poor Kung Lao. Gotta admit, always been a big fan of that tongue and acid spit. Mortal Kombat X launches April 14 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X trailer reveals the return of a couple of fan favorites


And they look ready for PUNishment
Jan 14
Drip feeding out character reveals is a fine fighting game tradition. But this morning, NetherRealm cranked up the dial and mainlined a medically unsafe dose straight to the heart of Mortal Kombat X junkies. A trailer t... read
Mortal Kombat X

Kung Lao shows no mercy in his first Mortal Kombat X screenshot


Sucks to be Scorpion
Jan 12
I'm not sure what Scorpion plans on doing here. He's in what we'd call a "no win situation." Kung Lao's fist is poised to usher Scorpion into a world of pain, and he's opted to imaginary limbo instead of fighting back. Maybe ... read
MK X Kung Lao

Old Man Kung Lao shuffles his weary bones to the next Mortal Kombat tournament


And promptly rips out my spine for calling him an 'old man'
Jan 06
Everyone's favorite Odd Job-inspired warrior will be returning to the bloody fray in Mortal Kombat X. Kung Lao's return was confirmed in the most recent issue of GamesMaster Magazine. And, as always, cutting-edge fashion will be very important to him. (I'll show myself out.) read
Don’t let the name fool you -- this is by no means a Batman game. The Dark Knight may grace the box, but underneath its bat-enameled shell lies a Justice League game at heart. A menagerie of DC heroes and villains combi... read feature

Shadow of Mordor DLC goes hunting, vomiting


Who wants More-dor?
Dec 16
Monolith released Lord of the Hunt today, the first add-on pack for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Yeah, the $10 DLC has a lot of the stuff you'd expect: new nemeses, new challenges, and even some guy named Torvin the ... read
Batman

This Batman: Arkham Knight trailer is disappointing


'Batmobile trailer,' I should say
Dec 01
The first Ace Chemicals Infiltration video for Batman: Arkham Knight rekindled my excitement and, looking over your comments, I was far from alone in that regard. But this? Come on now. It's almost entirely scripted footage ... read
After news of the delay back in September, the folks at WB Games and Rocksteady have kept all things Batman: Arkham Knight close to the vest. Thankfully, they figured we could use another appetizer after their showing at E3, ... read feature

Arkham Knight

We might learn more about Arkham Knight at The Game Awards 2014


And that'd be A-Okay with everyone
Nov 20
Rocksteady's conclusion to the Arkham trilogy will happen a bit later than everyone expected, and as such, there's still more to learn about the game. That's no big surprise; we're still discovering easter eggs in Arkha... read

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is available now, for nearly every console imaginable, real and otherwise. It's probably available for the Imagination Station 3000, but supplies are limited. The launch trailer above doesn't rea... read
Mortal Kombat X

I can't stop watching this sizzle reel of Mortal Kombat X Fatalities


Just brutal
Nov 06
Sometimes words do a disservice to a post. Sometimes, the best thing to do is to just let a video speak for itself. Nothing I could write would do justice to these overtly gory Mortal Kombat X Fatalities, anyway -- especially Scorpion's.
