Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor shall not release on October 7 anymore

October is going to be ridiculously packed with high-profile videogames, so the news that Warner Bros. has decided to fast-track Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's release from October 7 to September 30 is certainly welcom...

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.

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...

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...

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...

Trials Fusion passes one million sales

I liked Trials Fusion quite a bit, but I didn't stick with it for long. Been meaning to get back in there to see what the community of track creators has been up to -- impressive things, I'm sure. RedLynx released an update t...

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun.

NHL 15 flaunts its alliteration with the Superstar Skill Stick

Slapshots from the point, cheeky tip-ins, and wristers through traffic are all perfectly fine, but when you play an NHL game, you want to embarrass your opponent. You want them going to get their jock out of the rafters...

Destiny beta is back online a day early, opened up for Xbox

Destiny's beta went down for maintenance yesterday. It was meant to come back on July 23, but it's back up right now, giving you something to do tonight. Me, I'm making ramen. Like, actual ramen, not an instant, 10 cent salt ...
