Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes photo
Dumb Idiot Ideas: Voice pack mistakes
by Bill Zoeker

Max had his dumbest idea yet; handing the show over to me. What if more games had downloadable content voice packs the way they put Snoop Dogg into Call of Duty: Ghosts?

What kind of celebrities would work for that kind of thing? The answers may surprise you.

There's a mo-cap dog in this Ground Zeroes making-of video

I adore watching VFX studio reels, so when I heard that Konami had released one for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, I just couldn't help myself. I had to click. And here we are. At three minutes in length, the video is wo...

Risen 3's teaser trailer looks vaguely like Dante's Inferno

The official teaser trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords is out now, and it involves a lot of pretty CG animation and generic combat. It's got all the hallmarks of a traditional Western RPG: darkness, big swords, and copiou...

Get a taste of the R. Lee Ermey Call of Duty voice pack

Next week, Infinity Ward is set to drop two voice packs for multiplayer -- Snoop Dogg, and R. Lee Ermey. While Snoop's studio visit was previewed already, Ermey's wasn't -- it didn't even have a price or date confirmed, in fact. But now we know that it's going to hit at the same time as Snoop, on April 22nd for $2.99. Check out the video in full, and hear the iconic drill sergeant for yourself.

Review: Trials Fusion photo
Review: Trials Fusion
by Jordan Devore

There's nothing quite like Trials and, after several games in the popular racing/platforming series, fans know what to expect from developer RedLynx: more of the same.

Yes, there will be a stupid, amazing theme song you'll hate yourself for letting get stuck in your head. There will also be moments of immense frustration made bearable by the eventual satisfaction of clearing that one particularly devious obstacle. And there will be bitter leaderboard rivalries as you fight to shave milliseconds off your best times.

Trials Fusion represents all of these things, and more -- occasionally to its detriment.

I wonder how much money EA makes on 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Every four years, many of us pretend to be fans of il calcio -- I'm sorry, soccer -- for the global spectacle that is the World Cup. Every four years, EA releases an extra, novelty soccer game (in addition to its annual FIFA...

Elena is all smiles in Ultra Street Fighter IV's opening cinematic

Am I tripping, or does she seem way happier than usual, with softer eyes? How about an Ulta Street Fighter IV Android/iPhone companion app that is just a makeup studio sim and you get to pretty up all the characters in the game?

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare adds free Zomboss Down DLC photo
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare adds free Zomboss Down DLC
by Jordan Devore

I'm not sure which alternate dimension Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare came from or how it got here but PopCap's wacky third-person shooter has been a pleasant surprise. Against all odds, the game keeps on giving: another free DLC pack called Zomboss Down is out today, adding eight new characters and the Cactus Canyon map for Gardens and Graveyards mode.

The character level cap has also been increased to level 30, complete with new challenges to conquer, and there are 200+ customization items for the new cast of plants and zombies. Even though the last DLC release was free, I'm still surprised to see this one follow the same plan and PopCap not overwhelm players with microtransactions. Gosh, what a terrific game.
