A game's box art doesn't seem quite as s... more
The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia is an incredible book. So incredible, in fact, that at least one unscrupulous person tried to capitalize on demand by scalping numerous copies of the book's Limited Edition -- that guy wis... more

Season passes can be a gamble, even with higher-profile games. That's why I've yet to pay up front for content that might not turn out to be great despite the savings associated with doing so. Halo 4 will get in on that actio... more
Indie developer Nitrome, known for its disgustingly massive selection of free web games, is prepping its first major commercial release, Flightless. It's a fairly basic puzzle-platformer starring a thieving duck who has had ... more

There's no doubt in my mind that somewhere out there, people are pumped for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, but they sure aren't a vocal bunch, at least not around these parts. There's always the chance that the upcoming beta, w... more
Earlier this week, I got to take a stroll through Gotham and Metropolis with DC Universe Online's creative director, Jens Andersen. Being shown off was the latest DLC, Hand of Fate, which introduces a whole bunch of new PvE a... more
Blink, and you might miss this new trailer for Crysis 3. It's the kind of thing that'll pique your interest but isn't long enough to do much more than that.
The video did, however, get me to go look up the game's Hunter mode... more
This past weekend, Major League Gaming hosted a League of Legends competition, featuring a $10,000 prize, winner take all. Two teams, Curse Gaming and Team Black, won qualifying tournaments beforehand for spots in this compet... more

With a relatively thin PlayStation 3 launch line-up, Resistance: Fall of Man was a saving grace for early adopters. Almost six years later, the Resistance franchise has gone on to be a critical mainstay for Sony's systems. Wi... more
We live in a wonderful age where, if a specific game doesn't exist, an inspired individual will just up and say, "It shall be done!" The tools of creation have never been more easily accessible, and it has resulted in both o... more
I can remember playing Ghost Recon 2's multiplayer for hours and hours. GRAW 1 and 2 both had amazing single player campaigns, but Ghost Recon's multiplayer always had a bigger draw for me. So, you can imagine the anticipati... more
Medieval combat has been featured prominently in videogames. Fantasy RPGs, in particular, have always been filled with swords, axes, and archery. What hasn't really been explored much is realistic multiplayer melee combat. War of the Roses is Paradox's highest-budget game to date, and they are tying their best to make you enjoy hacking at other people with sharp, pointy things. more
Last month, Rockstar announced that they were pushing back the ever-so-slowly approaching launch of Max Payne 3 to give it a little bit more TLC. While the excitement is definitely mounting, I’m sure we can all agree th... more

Yeah, you read that right. It's time to lock yourself away for a while. more
RuneScape was always a game that I heard loads about, but never actually got into myself. The early 2000s were a time before I truly got to discover the wondrous medium that was PC gaming. Also being poor and not ac... more
I can't really say I'm too familiar with the A Song of Ice and Fire series. I haven't read the books, nor have I watched the HBO series. I've heard a lot of buzz about the whole series recently though... more
Rounding out the multiplayer maps in Gears of War 3 is Gridlock, because of course it is. I have not-so-fond memories of rushing forward and immediately dying in the Gears 1 version of the map. Good times.
