Like all superhero games, The Amazing Spider-Man will feature multiple unlockable costumes. HeroHQ got a peek at one of the outfits called the "Spider-Morphosis," and it's horrifying. The man-spider transformation is based from issue #437 of The Amazing Spider-Man comic, and all I have to say about that is NOPE!

Everything about Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is bigger. Way bigger. Bigger stages, bigger enemies, bigger weapons, big robo-dino action and really, really big bots.

You want screenshots for Prototype 2? No? Tough bollocks, son, you got 'em anyway!
There's plenty of death and destruction in these images, as James Heller chews through half a city with his mutant virus arms. Fire, claws, knives, there's basically everything you need to commit your favorite brand of genocide.
I am so stoked for this game. more
Say what you will about Activision as a publisher, but damn, those guys sure know how to put out incredible box art.
If and when I see Cabela's Survival: Shadows of Katmai in a brick and mortar store, there's a good chance I... more
