See more of Platinum's Legend of Korra game

We're in a great point in technology that 2D properties can be faithfully represented in 3D instead of looking weird and uncanny. Platinum's Legend of Korra game looks pretty neat, even to someone who hasn't watched the...

Ninja Theory made its Hellblade reveal trailer in eight weeks

I almost skipped over this Hellblade developer's diary. Maybe it's a default reaction to games with "hell" (or "blade?" both?) in the title. Forgot this was from Ninja Theory and that, as an enormous fan of Enslaved, I ...

Video tips on how to be a better Dota 2 player photo
Video tips on how to be a better Dota 2 player
by Patrick Hancock

Believe it or not, in all my time spent in Dota 2, I've never played a single solo matchmaking game. I've played plenty of team games, but the anxiety that comes with playing alone with strangers gets to me while playing Dota 2. Well, there's a first time for everything!

Now, the Dota 2 community, along with many others, gets a lot of flak for being "toxic," and sometimes rightfully so. However! In my new "benchwarMMR" video series there will be no anger or blame towards my fellow teammates. My goal is to learn as much as possible from these matches and let everybody in on the lessons I take away.

So join me on an educational journey through the world of competitive Dota 2. And please leave any feedback you have! 

PS - MMR stands for Matchmaking Rating. In other words, a number given to a player to "rank" how good they are relative to other players.

Watch this crafty space pirate avoid the cops in Elite: Dangerous

Remember kids, crime doesn't pay. That is unless you find illicit liquor floating in space and decided to slowly sneak into a space station without the cops seeing you. In which case, it very much pays. YouTube user Isinona ...

Mashup! Mario Kart 8 DLC adds Link, Animal Crossing Villager photo
Mashup! Mario Kart 8 DLC adds Link, Animal Crossing Villager
by Jordan Devore

[Update: Nintendo of America has released more details, mainly that both downloadable content packs will cost $7.99 each, or $11.99 if you buy both together. Also the DLC is coming out at absurd times. The first one will be out in November, and the second won't arrive until May 2015. What the hell.] 

Whoa! The official Nintendo UK Store website has a listing for upcoming Mario Kart 8 DLC that will add characters and courses from other Nintendo properties, including The Legend of Zelda's Link, Animal Crossing's Villager, and a kart based on F-Zero's Blue Falcon.

The first pack releases in November and includes Link, Cat Peach, Tanooki Mario, four vehicles, and eight courses. Then, in May, the second add-on introduces Villager, Dry Bowser, Isabelle, four more vehicles, and eight new courses. The DLC packs are priced at £7.00 each.

"As a bonus for purchasing both packs -- as a bundle or separately -- you can get eight different-colored Yoshis and eight different-colored Shy Guys that can be used right away."

It's about time this happened. I'll be dying to boot up Mario Kart 8 again come November.

[NSFW] Onechanbara Z2: Chaos opener & alternate costumes

The problem with having a super "fan service" sort of game is that it can be hard to add more fan service. Like, there are plenty of upskirts in Onechanbara Z2: Chaos' opening cinematic, but when half of your characters are ...
