Here's the new box art for Quantum Break

Now Shawn Ashmore has been confirmed as Quantum Break's Jack Joyce, Microsoft has revised the game's box art accordingly. At least, that's what this Amazon Germany image implies, anyway.

Soul Axiom is looking good and weird

While I've known Soul Axiom to be a distinct game, the mix of games with Souls in the name and Axiom Verge this year has muddled my brain up. Soul Axiom is looking like it will muddle my brain up, too, from this surreal trailer. The upcomi...

Final Fantasy XV airships might not make launch, Just Cause 3 dev helping

At the start of this year, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata called airships "a huge technical challenge" and "to be determined," but they make sense for the game's big, organically connected world. At gamescom last week, Tabata talk...

Watch the Rise of the Tomb Raider gamescom demo

Brett caught up with (and previewed) Rise of the Tomb Raider at gamescom 2015 and what we saw didn't sound all that different from what I saw at E3 2015. Not too surprising this close to launch of a sequel that already has it's formula dow...

Ninja Theory has felt like a mercenary of late. Enslaved didn't sell as well as it should have (neither did Heavenly Sword), and so the last five years has been spent 1) making a mobile game for EA-owned publisher Chillingo, ...   read

Thoughts of dogfighting over the surface of the planet Sullust should raise your heartbeat a little bit. It's an exciting prospect. Really, that goes for piloting any vessel in the Star Wars canon through any franchise l...   read

The Technomancer gets chased through Mars, is not Total Recall

The Technomancer is not about a man who goes to Mars to have his eyeballs bulge out. Rather, "we watch our hero Zachariah attempts to communicate with Earth, as he is chased by Mars’ illusive secret police, tasked with hunting down t...

Ori and the Blind Forest is getting an expansion

Ori and the Blind Forest is one of my favorite games on Xbox One. It looks, sounds, and plays magnificently. I'm surprised and delighted it even got made, and that goes double for its commercial success. The game was "already profitable a w...

Lara Croft has never been the best archaeologist. Carefully digging for hours so as to not damage an artifact wouldn't make for a very good video game. Still, there's a disconnect when she knocks over human skulls that are pe...   read

Final Fantasy XV confirmed for 2016 release

Final Fantasy XV's lengthy development time has been long documented. Square Enix's promised strong showing for the next mainline entry this gamescom amounted to a fairly boring trailer, doing nothing to reassure anyone that this game is ac...

The Phantom Pain lets you sneak into players' bases and steal their men with wormholes

The Mother Base side of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is detailed enough to necessitate a half-hour demonstration out of gamescom, and I'm loving it. There's a lot to parse, but thoughtful editing and delivery keeps the flood of inf...

Who is building all the damn metal ramps in Homefront: The Revolution?

These are the next three Heroes of the Storm

I don't think I'll stray far from Valla (especially now that I have her Master Skin), but I have been stockpiling gold for another Diablo character in Heroes of the Storm -- Kharazim, Monk of Ivgorod. At gamescom, Blizzard opened up about t...

Scalebound at gamescom

I won some Doritos out of a dumb Just Cause 3 claw machine

Square Enix has no problem embracing how stupid and great and terrible and awesome its game -- and all video games, really -- can be. That's why there's a Just Cause 3-branded claw machine that's dishing out Doritos at gamescom. 'Cause this...
