The teaser trailer for Basement Crawl was unsettling, to put it mildly. And I'm none too pleased that I had to watch it a second time to refresh my memory. It was unclear how this story-centric video would apply to the gamepl... more

We couldn't resist putting the Xbox One and PS4 side by side for some photos. They've been running side by side in our offices for awhile now, so we thought we'd clean them up and pose them for you.
Aside from the consoles, you'll see the system, their controllers, and some of their accessories posed in our gallery. If there are any other shots you'd like to see, let us know. more
Did you know that this guy's name is Boxman? I wasn't aware until today.
He's been featured prominently in Bethesda's promotion of The Evil Within so far, which has me wondering if the intent is for him to become the title's ... more
The last we had heard from the cooperative Mars excavation game Super Motherload was a failed Kickstarter campaign and word that it would eschew WiiWare in favor of "other major consoles." That was just one year ago, bu... more
Today, NBA 2k14 released its first next-gen screenshot, featuring Lebron James. That is screenshot. Singular. I think NBA Live 14 is winning the next gen race, though, because it released its one screenshot almost a month ago. At least show some gamesmanship and one up them, 2K. Release two (k) screenshots.
Anyways, they are both attached. Which one looks more next gen? more
Even without a deep-rooted sense of nostalgia for Strider -- okay, I do love the ridiculous Blue Dragon and always will for obvious reasons -- the remake in development at Double Helix is enough to bring about feelings of un... more
We learned about Lily Bergamo, a new game from Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture, last month when Suda51 took the stage at a Sony press conference in Japan. The team hopes to have the PS4 game playable by next TGS and relea... more

I shouldn't let box art bother me like this, but I'm unable to stop wondering what other covers were rejected in favor of this one for Destiny. It's pretty standard, which is what makes it disappointing -- there's so much pot... more
Sony has confirmed the Killzone: Shadow Fall PlayStation 4 bundle, heading to Europe this November. There's going to be two bundles, in fact. The first one will include the game and system for €439.

At Sony's Tokyo Game Show press conference, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono was on hand to show off more of Capcom's PS4 exclusive Deep Down, which is looking more and more like Dark Souls (or perhaps Dark Souls 2). Though, counter to... more
We all owe WayForward an apology. We haven't been paying the Kickstarter for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero much attention because Mighty No. 9 gobbled up everyone's focus. I knew weeks in advance that WayForward was planning to la... more
First, you need to watch this trailer for Valiant Hearts: The Great War before reading anything about it.
This isn't your typical war game, as Valiant Hearts is going beyond the disconnected action tropes of "good versus evi... more
Killer is Dead's Suda51 took the stage at Sony's press conference in Japan to announce a new PS4 game, Lily Bergamo. It's apparently an action game -- "extreme action" and "supreme action" -- but little was shown outside... more
I'm as interested in The Order: 1886 as I can be for a game I know so little about. I've still not seen the PS4 exclusive from the consistently good Ready at Dawn in action, but this recent PlayStation Blog post from Ready at... more
Okay first of all the creature in the header here looks like something from a nightmare. Just, so creepy.
Well whatever it is, it's one of four new Skylanders playable in SWAP Force. Two of them are also just normal Skylander... more
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
inFamous: Second Son may have moved away from mainstay protagonist Cole, but newcomer Delsin looks as if he'll fill the role's shoes quite aptly. Causing wanton destruction is a series staple, and he seems to be perfect... more
Killzone: Shadow Fall will introduce custom Warzones when it launches on PS4 this year. You'll be able to tweak your own rules, conditions, and match types, before sharing your created game modes online.
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
Housemarque made a name for itself with the addictive, colorful Super Stardust HD, one of the PS3's early downloadable and indie exclusives. Housemarque followed with neat games like Dead Nation and the excellent Outland, but... more
Well, this certaintly came out of nowhere! Developer Tequila Works' newest project has been unveiled, and it's an open world adventure for the PlayStation 4. Titled simply as Rime, it distinctly reminds me of Ico mixed with ... 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
A cosmopolitan team of developers with experience working on titles such as Valkyria Chronicles, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Diablo III, and the Final Fantasy series have joined forces to create Project Phoenix, an indie Jap... more

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag takes us to the age of pirates, and because of that Ubisoft's Singapore studio was tasked with creating the full on ocean simulation. I spoke with lead designer Sebastien Berton who walked me ... more

Activision’s Skylanders franchise has always smelled of a money grab to me. Copperish, like the smell of old pennies scrounged up by hard-working parents so little Linda Anne can have all the newest and coolest Skylande... more
DICE continues to upgrade its social service Battlelog in preparation for Battlefield 4's release later this year, and here's our look at what exactly is in the pipeline. For folks who literally can't get enough Battlefield ... more

Hohokum is one of the games at E3 that might just convince me to buy a PlayStation Vita already, even if it is also coming to PS3 and PS4 next year. Playing it on Vita with a nice pair of headphones seems like the only way t... more
Those of you who haven't really gotten into The Witcher series might not be too invested in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt yet despite how great it looks. That's something you'll want to change leading up to release acros... more
We've already covered Thief and the latest demo we saw was largely the same: go in someone's house and steal their most precious item. Steven Hansen broke down a lot of the mechanics already, so I just wanted to touch on how ... more
Get in, totally disregard your seatbelt and saftey, and get ready to take a spin with me in upcoming PS4 game DriveClub.
Relax. Don't let the high-end visuals fool you -- this isn't some uptight sim. It's all about driving an... more
At E3 this afternoon I had the pleasure of chatting with Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi about his upcoming PS3 game, Gran Turismo 6. He also teased what might be coming up next, but made it clear that we're getting ahead of ourselves when talking about PS4 Gran Turismo titles. more
Knack came out of nowhere. This PS4 title is quite a bit different from what you'd expect for a launch title from Sony, but this makes it a standout in the large pile of upcoming next-gen games. As it stands right now, there'... more
We smooshed our faces against the glass in Sony's press area on the E3 show floor just now to get you these PS4 photos. In our gallery you'll see some detail shots of the front, back, and sides of the console. You'll also fin... more
I'm in love. Contrast is slated to come to PC, PS3 (PSN), and Xbox 360 (XBLA) by year's end, but according to the game's website it will also be available for PS4 at launch. Also, the above YouTube trailer is designated "(PS... more
I feel bad for not being more invested in Knack when I'm reasonably sure it will end up being a worthy pickup for PlayStation 4 owners. For starters, it looks like something Pixar could have put out, which isn't the kind of ... more
We got a glimpse of inFamous: Second Son gameplay from Sucker Punch tonight and, well, there's a reason series fans are excited. How could you not be?
From a pure visual standpoint, the graphics are really starting to c... more
