Dead or Alive 5 headed to PC but it won't have online at launch


Armageddon
Dec 04
It's great to see a series like Dead or Alive finally come to PC. Less great, however, is that "Online modes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be added in a patch within three months of release." I suppose it comes down to ... read

So long, sub-$100 PS4s: Walmart adjusts price-matching policy


Move along, nothing to see here
Nov 20
Thanks to Walmart's new online price matching, some customers were recently able to set up phony third-party listings on Amazon.com and convince the retailer to honor totally ridiculous discounts. For instance, how does a Pla... read

I can't make sense of this live-action Sportsball trailer


But I like it, anyway
Oct 30
This trailer for Sportsball -- not to be confused with Action Button Entertainment's Videoball; the narrator's delivery reminded me of Tim Rogers, a bit -- is something else. I feel like I need to watch it about four more ti... read

Nintendo has kids explain amiibo figures in Super Smash Bros.


Watch for the footage of eight-player battles
Oct 24
I made it to the closeup of Mario's face, roughly a minute in, before deciding that I needed to share this ridiculous video in which a boy buys an amiibo for Super Smash Bros. to impress a girl. Kyle says it's the worst thin... read

Infinite Crisis has a SoCal bro Green Lantern


And he looks douchey in all the wrong (right?) ways
Oct 08
We haven't talked about Infinite Crisis, the DC Comics-themed multiplayer online battle arena game, in a while. Truthfully, it's been fun to just look at its alternate-universe heroes and villains more than anything, what wit... read

Hey, you know what Crazy Taxi needed more of? Hulk Hogan

Sonic x Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is, uh, yeah...


The Taiko Drum Master tie-in, on the other hand, is rad
Sep 18
Admittedly, this collaboration is slightly less horrifying once you realize it's a Felyne (or Palico, if you want to be precise) wearing Sonic the Hedgehog armor. Slightly. Still, I think this tops the sexy/stretchy fan art f... read

As previously covered, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is a real game. It's not out yet, but it will be out on Steam soon enough -- an open beta is scheduled to go live on September 23. I was already toying around with the idea... read

Wear the carcass of Chester Cheetah in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare


Cheetos is really doing this

I was prepared to get mildly annoyed at this Cheetos partnership with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, despite the fact that it's not the first time the game has dabbled in brand-sponsored character variants. (There were ... read

A disturbing trip back to the '90s

Help us decipher this Battleborn tweet from Gearbox's Randy Pitchford


Translator needed
Jul 08
This morning, Gearbox Software announced its next game, Battleborn, a cooperative first-person shooter that has elements traditionally found in multiplayer online battle arenas like League of Legends. Or, put another way: Perfect. I've been in the market for a hobby-grade co-op campaign with meta-growth and choice. read

Hug, kiss, and chest bump total strangers in PlayStation Home

You know who else promised they wouldn't change, Oculus? My third husband. But two years after a trip to Nepal and he's thirty pounds heavier, balding, and a born again Christian. That's not what I signed up for. No matter yo... read

Condoms included with inFamous pre-order in Italy


'Enjoy your power'
Feb 07
GameStop Italy is offering a pre-order kit for inFamous Second Son that includes two cans of Red Bull and glow-in-the-dark condoms. Yes, really. In the words of Max Scoville, "Infamous: Second Skin, so you don't have a Second Son." And, honestly, this is a more useful pre-order bonus than in-game jackets for Delsin. [Via NeoGAF] read

Teaser? Atlus? Persona 5? The company has some sort of announcement planned for November 24, 2013 and while a newly-discovered teaser page might be completely unrelated to the franchise or even that specific news item, whatever it may be, it's got my attention. The heartbeat is a nice tough. Any guesses? [Thanks, DV2 The Fox] read
