Ahead of Freedom Wars' October 28 release in North America, PlayStation Blog has listed which Panopticons will appear in the Western version of the PS Vita game. A what now?
Think of a building designed in such a way that a p...

Risk of Rain is a great little action platformer that'll make you feel like garbage before building you up into an unstoppable force of destruction. Try it, sometime! You can even bring friends along.

Lords of the Fallen preview builds are making the rounds, and some folks haven't had a favorable view of the game so far. It seems like a lot of people are having trouble with some of the game's core mechanics, so the d...

Monolith has released a free Power of Shadow DLC pack for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Most notably, it includes an alternate costume for Talion that resembles the Black Hand of Sauron. Epic Runes are included as well:
One with Nature – Immunity to Poison attacks from Uruk Captains or Ghuls.
Ascendant – Double Focus Time for slow motion Ranged combat.
Elven Grace – Increased defense which halves the damage of enemy strikes.
More clothing options are good if, like Steven, you want to live out matchmaking fantasies or, similar to Nic, you want to become the Dracula of Middle-earth. (I love these guys.)
I'm holding off on Shadow of Mordor until the holiday break, I think. This seems like something I'll want to dig into for a week straight and never touch again. Ever do that?
One of the biggest surprises of 2014 had to be the announcement of a Legend of Korra game, published by Activision and developed by Platinum Games. Yes, that Platinum Games -- the current master of action titles.
It's only been a few months since the reveal of said Korra game, and already it's out on just about every platform imaginable outside of the Wii U. While the core result is indicative of Platinum's seal of quality, it feels rushed in many ways.
While the Dynasty Warriors series is often heralded as the pinnacle of Omega Force's hack-and-slash catalog, the lesser-known Samurai franchise has been churning out some of the best games in the stable.
Based around the Sengoku era of Japan, Samurai Warriors mixes things up with unique offerings like ninjas, samurai, and historical figures such as Goemon Ishikawa and Musashi Miyamoto. If you can get past the repetition, Samurai Warriors 4 delivers another hearty helping of action the developer is known for.
There were enough worthwhile PC games tied to Games for Windows Live that I was willing to put up with service, which seemed to range from mildly annoying to downright frustrating, depending on the day. For many of us, Dark S...
Hyrule Warriors is a massive game. If you want to 100% everything, get every weapon, and max out every character, it could last you roughly 200 hours or more. I'm hitting the 100-hour mark myself, due in part to the new Master Quest DLC pack that dropped yesterday.
The pack comes side-by-side with a free update that brings three new characters to the mix, and on its own delivers a new weapon (Epona), five new campaign maps, and a newer, tougher Adventure Mode map.
Although October 5th's portion of the Bloodborne alpha was delayed, a new session is scheduled for October 19 for all of the applicable regions, to get one last adventure in. Japan is scheduled for 20:00-23:00, North Ame...
To recap, there will be a free update today for Hyrule Warriors that will involve three characters -- Cia, Wizzro, and Volga. There will also be a paid DLC pack launching today that brings the Epona weapon for Link, a n...
I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Games, and the exact moment when my friend showed me God Hand.
All in all Mikami has worked on over 20 major games that have impacted the industry in some way. Even if The Evil Within is one of the worst in the bunch, it's still in good company.
Freedom Wars is getting its 1.20 update in Japan, which brings multiple 8-v-8 PVP modes to the shooter. You have your deathmatch mode, and a capture the flag [civilian] gametype, which should last you quite a while give...
Back in 2012, Far Cry 3 turned out to be a surprise hit for Ubisoft. It became the bestselling title of the series, appearing on many game of the year lists, and also created a rather excellent spin-off title. But with the announcement of Far Cry 4 back in May, many fans were pretty psyched to have a new game exploring another exotic locale, but also surprised to see something come so quickly.
With the reveal and release happening within six months of one another, it all seems like it has been going too quickly, and we've never really had the opportunity to digest something substantial for the game. Thankfully, Ubisoft agreed and allowed some extended hands-on time with the upcoming open-world shooter. After experiencing some time with the game's open-world, I can say that November is certainly going to be interesting month with this title coming to market.
Man, Capcom is killing it with these Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate crossovers. And by "it," I of course mean Sonic the Hedgehog. He never stood a chance.

The Short Peace project was born out a desire to unite some of Japan's most talented artists and tell stories about the country's past, present, and a possible future. The result is a lovely bouquet of action, romance, and social commentary, a collection of four animated short films that are thought-provoking, gorgeous, and brilliant in just about every way.
The anthology also includes a game, Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day, a modest collaboration between Grasshopper Manufacture and Tokyo Jungle studio Cripsy's that seems doomed to live in the shadow of greatness.
