Destiny: House of Wolves' newest teaser trailer is needlessly vague


Actual details are coming tomorrow
May 05
Destiny is using the term "teaser trailer" a little too literally. The series' newest reveal teaser gives players a glimpse at the Prison of Elders, a co-op battle arena coming in the game's House of Wolves expansi... read

PSA: Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is almost 40GB


Up for pre-loading on Xbox One
Apr 27
How much room is left on your Xbox One? I have no idea. I don't think I've had to delete anything yet, but I also don't use it that much. Anyways, I ask because the standalone Wolfenstein prequel, The Old Blood, comes out next week and is eligible to pre-load if you've already pre-ordered it on Xbox One. Which is good, because the $20 game clocks in at a big, bad 37.14GB. read

Some metal bands, not the Castle Crashers devs, play Evolve DLC


Well, that's a disappointment
Apr 17
A video with a misleading title led me to accidentally watch an Evolve DLC video. "Behemoth plays Behemoth" is less Dan Paladin and Tom Fulp, and more metal bands I've never heard of. But, if you're looking for fantastic insight and well-thought-out critique such as "I loved killing them; they were pissing me off," and "It's pretty much like being on-stage," then do I ever have the video for you. read
