I still have a hard time believing Destiny is actually possible given the scope of the entire project. You're going to have multiple worlds to explore, so many guns to play with, tons of enemies to kill, and it all looks gor... more
So I really like fashion. It's not to the extent that I can tell what label you're wearing. In fact I don't care about that aspect of fashion. I just care about what looks good. And Lightning looks so good in all of her outf... more
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be out on February 25, 2014 in North and South America for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
I'm really looking forward to Lords of Shadow 2, and this new walkthrough video has got me e... more
gamescom is crazy. There are what seems like miles of exhibition halls, all packed with games, attractions, and lots of sweaty people. Last year, I felt like I missed some things. This year, the first thing I did was run thro... more
Along with Puppeteer, Tearaway has to be the most delightful-looking game of the year. I'm torn as to which looks cuter. It might even be a legitimate contender for many game of the year awards. Hamza couldn't sing its prais... more

We got shown a brief trailer for the multiplayer, and you can view that above. As little as some folk care about Killzone, I'm all about it. Looks good! more

The new game from Magicka maker Arrowhead Game Studios was announced during Sony's gamescom presser and it's a step in a different direction. While Helldivers is still very much focused on cooperative play, this title is act... more
Everybody's Gone To The Rapture, a CryEngine-powered game from The Chinese Room, has been unveiled today at Gamescom. A teaser trailer was shown, promising that "The story begins with the end of the world." The title was a clue!
It certainly looks interesting. These are the Dear Esther guys, so it'll be a thing, whatever it is!
I have a hard time seeing this ending any other way than "badly," but props for trying, I suppose. Ubisoft has announced an Xbox One launch title called Fighter Within that looks halfway decent until you hear that, yes, it's... more
Wargaming.net's World of Warplanes is currently in closed beta at the moment, with around 700,000 registered users shredding it up in the air combat game. Like World of Tanks, the developers are focusing on keeping the same ... more
Update 8.0 for the free-to-play World of Tanks will be adding realistic physics to the experience. This means tanks will catch air when jumping over hills, and tanks can even push each other around now. In fact, you can push... more

All of the halls of Ko... more
I've run out of complimentary things to say about the visuals in the Trine series, so I'll just point you to this trailer for the now-named Trine 2 expansion, Goblin Menace. Prepare your eyes for vibrant colors.

Dust 514 made its gameplay debut at the EVE Online Fanfest event earlier this year where I got some extensive hands-on time with the game. Back then, I thought the overall concept was great, but the visuals and controls neede... more
You know, I've just come to accept that Nintendo doesn't feel like making a new Metroid any time soon. Maybe they're just not ready. But Konami has us covered with the next best thing: a brand-new 3D/2D Castlevania ... more
It's the game Silent Hill fans love to hate, and Konami has nine new screenshots for them. Silent Hill: Book of Memories is still my most anticipated PS Vita game of the moment, and I'll be maintaining every hope that the ful... more
Here's a swanky new batch of screenshots for Deadpool. There are also some art images, some of which are just pictures taken from that ridiculous Marvel Swimsuit Special that used to run for no other reason than to be stupid.... more
Here are some spooky new ZombiU screenshots hot out of Cologne. Ooh, those zombies look so terrifying with their zombie powers, don't they? Sorry, having to do all these gamescom posts are making me more sarcastic then usual.... more
Oh man, Rayman Legends is looking absolutely gorgeous. If you don't believe me, you can always check out the new trailer and screenshots that released from gamescom. The video shows off the touch-screen controls, which I just hope they don't go mental with.
After Rayman Origins, expectations are high for this. I hope they keep the momentum going. more
"A boy awakes to see a girl's silhouette in the rain. He finds himself lost in a mysterious world."
That's how the trailer for JapanStudio's Rain (working title) opened up, followed by a gameplay demo showing off ho... more
At EA's gamescom press conference today in Cologne, Germany, it was revealed that just about all of the cars will be unlocked from the start of upcoming racer Need for Speed: Most Wanted. So, no more unlocking.
Wait, wh... more
Did you not think you'd get a Dead Space 3 limited edition? Oh, how naive you are. Yes, one is coming, and it gives players first access to two "bundles" planned for Visceral's action-horror sequel. DLC bundles, that is. Lot... more
Electronic Arts just announced Battlefield 3: Premium Edition, which includes the base game and a full membership to Battlefield 3's Premium service. So that means it will include all of the downloadable expansions that have... more

People in space shooting each other. Do I really need to say anything else? PlanetSide 2 is an open-world, massively multiplayer, first-person shooter (we need a catchy acronym for that) from Sony Online Entertainment. Sony j... more
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
[Update: The original screenshots we ran were, in fact, old. Someone let the Ghoulies run wild in the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe offices again. Q-Games sent over the latest batch of images, so check 'em out.]
Having c... more
Take a look at the Dishonored image above. Those are law enforcers on robotic stilts. They are the STILT POLICE (not the official name), and I have so many questions about them. In fact, let's list them:
Why are those police... more
I'm really loving the look of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Sucker Punch really created some awesome looking worlds and endearing characters when it launched the series in 2002 for the PlayStation 2. It's a bit of a shame the ... more
I'll be honest -- in the Gamescom madness, I can't tell what's new and what's old anymore. I think we haven't posted these Prey 2 before, but if we have ... you can stuff it up your arse.
These possibly-fresh images rev... more
Here's the post you've been waiting for, a delicious gallery revealing every available race and two genders for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Whether you're an Orc fan, an Argonian lover, or a humdrum Human, you'll get a lovel... more
Some new screenshots for LittleBigPlanet on the PlayStation Vita have squirted out of Gamescom, and they're looking quite pretty indeed. Really reminds me of the time when I thought the Game Boy's collection of black blocks o... more
When I get given Resistance 3 shots, I want only one thing -- pictures of really gross Chimera, so I can look at them and say, "Eeww, those Chimera are really gross!"
Unfortunately, somebody at Sony felt we needed to lo... more

As a big fan of the original Darksiders, thi... more
EA has found a great deal of success in its Autolog feature. So much, in fact, that it's implementing that same function into pretty much all of its other games. In it's upcoming SSX reboot, the autolog looks to be in full s... more
Ubisoft was kind enough to release a pile of screenshots today for the not-far-off Driver: San Francisco. The gallery includes a selection licensed cars, running from the police and other shenanigans. Launch the gallery below... more
The simplest way for a comic franchise to regain their foothold is generally to just reboot the story, hence the countless iterations of every hero. For X-Men: Destiny however, they're taking a slightly different path by not... more
In case there was any doubt, at least part of Far Cry 3 will take place on a tropical island. This has been completely confirmed today by a set of screens coming out of gamescom that show off leaves, sand, and water. Yup… that's a tropical island. Far Cry 3 is set for a release in 2012, so prepare for malaria accordingly. more
Hot on the heels of yesterday's brand new trailer, Electronic Arts has put out a batch of new screenshots for Funcom's upcoming MMO The Secret World. Along with the announcement of a release date in April 2012 and some upcomi... more
Last year's Metro 2033 was a sleeper hit for a lot of folks, but it seems THQ is bent making sure the sequel, Last Light, doesn't suffer the same fate. They've released a bundle of screens for the shooter straight out of GamesCom, and they look damn fine. As a fan of 2033 (despite its...quirks), I really can't wait to see how this one pans out. more
At this point, I don't need fancy trailers to sell me on Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Sure, it's been less than a year since I plowed through Brotherhood, but my hunger for the series isn't sated so easily.
But when ... more
Okay, that headline might be ever so slightly hyperbolic, but there are underwater cities you can build in Anno 2070. Maybe we can get a user-made mod to bring the concept of BioShock's Rapture in this game closer to reality... more
