If you aren't getting XP, wait

Four top players did motion capture

And there's co-op!

Time to pack up and go home
May 27
"There's something wrong, isn't there?" Yes, Harry. Something is deeply wrong. I'm staying far away from the alternate-reality game for SOMA. Not because I'm not interested in what Frictional Games is cooking up for its unde... read

But I could not be more curious
"What fucked up person came up with this?" I asked. Giant Sparrow creative director Ian Dallas sheepishly raised his hand. He knew I wasn't admonishing him, though; the expression on my face and the excitement in my voice gav... read feature

Battlefield 4's big spring patch adds weapons and a gun-swapping mode


There's a pdf and everything
May 26
DICE rolled out its spring update for Battlefield 4 today and it's substantial enough to warrant a pdf with highlights. The short of it is five new guns, the return of Battlefield 3's Gun Master mode, and a revamp of the dama... read

I don't recognize most of the new songs revealed for Guitar Hero Live


But that's probably my fault

The tracklist so far for Guitar Hero Live has been a bit puzzling for some. Personally, I can suspend disbelief long enough to pretend to play a Skrillex song on guitar. I mean, I'm pretending to play guitar using an electron... read
