Tom Clancy's Estate's The Division
While Americans celebrate Independence Day the only way we know how -- grilled foods, intoxication, and explosions -- watch this crazy depressing Tom Clancy's The Division trailer to bring the mood down a little bit. We...
Batman: Arkham Knight may be the third and final title in Rocksteady's trilogy of Caped Crusader games, but its first add-on travels back to before the origins of the series. Okay, well, it's the first add-on save for th...
Launching this month
Iron Galaxy has announced that Capsule Force will launch on the PC and PS4 platforms this month on July 23. It's a retro-styled four player title that's set in the "far future of 1999."
Although it's multiplayer oriented, it will have 30 missions to play solo. I really dig the aesthetic here, so I'll probably give it a shot.
Man do I love this character though
Just yesterday, we gave you the rundown on the Harley Quinn DLC pack for Batman: Arkham Knight. Much like many aspects of the core game, it was a letdown, mostly due to its length and the fact that it doesn't really provide a...
Here's some measurements
The Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition may be sold out, but you can see if it will actually fit your current smartphone, compliments of a new blog update from Bethesda. According to the publisher, the foam inserts will fit the&nb...
That ugly mofo is $4.99
Although it was possible to fight the Predator in Mortal Kombat X recently, he'll be making his way officially as a combatant very soon. NetherRealm has announced that his debut will be July 7, at which point he will ru...
That is to say, there's a lot of blood
I was originally going to pass on posting this trailer, but I came across it while I was listening to Lana del Rey's Ultraviolence and that just seemed like too great of a coincidence. Also, the developer's name (Wolf Brew) ...
Now with gameplay footage
A few months back we got our first look at Renoir and I expressed some cautious optimism since the film noir genre is underused in games but the reveal trailer had no information on gameplay past the puzzle-platformer genre ...
Mutated creatures, you say?
Piranha Bytes is known for Gothic and Risen, but it's stepping away from those series to create a new role-playing game, ELEX. That's "eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial." Got it? Me neither!
We can't actually see the gam...
"I will say that it’s pretty rich for WB to act like they had no idea the game was in such a horrible state," an anonymous quality assurance tester on Arkham Knight told Kotaku. "It’s been like this for months and...
Less than 30 minutes
Harley Quinn is at it again this time with a pre-order exclusive DLC (yuck) for Batman: Arkham Knight. I have good news for everyone who didn't bother pre-ordering -- you aren't missing much.
The entire add-on basically amounts to less than 30 minutes of the same core gameplay as Knight, minus the Batmobile-fest.
'Let's get sweaty'
The voice actor who played Ryo in the English versions of Shenmue 1 and 2, Corey Marshall, has been confirmed for Shenmue 3.
"We would all like to thank Corey-san for coming back," says an announcement on the Shenmue 3 K...
'It's good competition which is good for everybody'
Xbox boss Phil Spencer has acknowledged that the company must "do better in Europe."
In an interview in the latest Edge Magazine, Spencer said, "when I look globally, mainland Europe is definitely an area we want to focus on....
Kill me? No thanks!
Hey, remember when I crouched in a bush beside skating teens and told you about the extended Uncharted 4: A Thief's End demonstration I saw at E3? (I wrote about it, too.)
Now you can watch that extended gameplay and see jus...
Developer Visual Concepts and wrestler Seth Rollins have a lot in common. They're both the architects and the future of the WWE. The only difference is that Visual Concepts handles the 2K video game side of things, not t...
And, sweet, Geometry Wars 3 for Vita
I feel like a digital hoarder with PlayStation Plus. So much stuff I don't need and never will.
But I do need Rain, that game about a boy who is invisible unless he's in rain. Missed that back in 2013 and haven't given it any...
Finally, actual in-game footage
The Heroic Legend of Arslan is getting a Musuo game that will arrive in Japan later this year on PS3 and PS4. Arslan is a classic manga series that's pretty popular in the east (and just got a new anime series), th...
Subheaders are the bane of my existence
Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is coming to North America on July 21, XSEED Games just announced.
After a brief hands-on session with the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive at E3 the other week, I'm actually looking forward to this...
Developer Lab Zero Games has announced that Skullgirls 2nd Encore will arrive on the PS4 next Tuesday on July 7. It will feature Cross-Buy with the Vita version, which is apparently still in development with a "six week ...
'No two-page inserts here!'
Shovel Knight is one of those games that's so good, you want as many people as possible to hear about it, play it, and hopefully dig it as much as you do. To that end, some good news: Yacht Club Games is pushing for a retail ...
Where the Cat and Wolf Play
Another week, another free content update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This time around it's a new quest, entitled "Where the Cat and the Wolf Play." For those who aren't aware, CD Projekt Red has been adding small bits of D...
Uncharted writer lost 8 months of work
Visceral Games' (Dead Space, Battlefield: Hardline) Star Wars game was noticeably absent from EA's E3 showing this year. I thought there was a chance we'd see it, anyhow. Uncharted voice actor Nolan North did give some hints ...
Well, that headline wrote itself.
Soft Body, *ahem*, looks like a cool, free-flowing take on Snake. Here, you're dodging bullets while filling in the world and your snake can split apart to form two bodies, each controlled by...
Reminder: This thing is $40
Were we expecting the remaster of Darksiders II for current systems to look significantly better than the 2012 original (RIP THQ)? I was not. Crisper and smoother, sure, but that's about it. Here are some comparison screenshots that, at least to these less-than-stellar eyes, took some studying.
The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book
Gust has turned heads with a new PlayStation (3, 4, and Vita) action RPG Yoru no Nai Kuni (something along the line of Land of No Night). It's much darker (but still pretty) than the Atelier games the company might be best k...
Mark Cerny rumor 'totally bogus'
Ah, so here's a thing. Director Fumito Ueda just gave an interview with Game Informer where he put the delay on "a corporate decision by Sony" and not just technical issues. "There are always delays in production, as you know...
Mash, mash, mash, mash, mash, mash......
J-Stars Victory VS+ is a game that's mechanically light, heavy on fanservice volume but that only ever skims the surface of the characters it includes. If you want an anime brawler that focuses on the sheer volume of anime ch...
Now on PS4 this week
Let's take a little trip down memory lane, shall we? Back in 2002, WayForward released the original Shantae for the Game Boy Color. It wasn't a massive hit, but it quickly became a cult classic, and eventually lead to th...
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for $13.20!
I haven't made much use of the PlayStation Network flash sales -- the best deals are often for games I own -- but I'm happy they're a regular occurrence. There's another one this weekend.
Bound by Flame ($14)
Walk on walls
When you jump off a ledge in Willy Chyr's Relativity, you can keep falling. Forever.
The abstract world, made up of floating platforms and puzzle rooms, loops. Why climb a huge flight of stairs when you can just "fall" to the...
