These Mad Max screenshots are looking a bit hot and sweaty

Here’s something to make you feel old and angry: I’ve never seen the Mad Max movies. The first one came out 15 years before I was born, so the hype surrounding them was never around in my lifetime. I know a little...

Review: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China
by Chris Carter

Just last week I asked readers if they were into the idea of 2D Assassin's Creed games. Roughly 41% were on board, 33% preferred the 3D iterations, and 26% have checked out of the series entirely.

Ubisoft doesn't really care what you think, though. As long as they sell, those assassins will keep on stabbin'.

Halo 5 has some fancy Hunter armor, but only for those who pre-order at GameStop

Imagine, if you will, that you're in a GameStop plunking down money for Halo 5: Guardians well ahead of the game's release. Kenny Rogers saunters in and croons in your ear "You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to ...

Rare's next game a 'career highlight' for Phil Harrison

PC Port Report: Mortal Kombat X photo
PC Port Report: Mortal Kombat X
by Nic Rowen

I have never played a game that I've wanted to love so badly that seems so set and determined to antagonize me than the PC port of Mortal Kombat X. In the abstract, Mortal Kombat X is a great game. The single player content is second to none in the genre, providing plenty of things to do while moving the series lore forward in a meaningful way.

It combines the hallmark Mortal Kombat dramatic flair with a fighting system competitive players can take seriously. The variation modifiers giving each character three distinct fighting styles is fantastically implemented, not only accommodating more play-styles, but rewarding character loyalists with options in the face of unfavorable match-ups.

That's the Mortal Kombat X on the PS4 and Xbox One anyway. The one that runs smoothly and can go online and play against real human opponents. I've seen occasional glimmers of that game poking out from the darkness of this busted PC port. Mostly though, I've borne witness to a haphazard Frankenstein of a once noble creature, shakily lashed together with baling wire, hope, and enormous 15 gig patches.

Assassin's Creed has a new perspective, but a familiar thirst for blood

A cursory glance at the launch trailer for Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, and you might think that the franchise is moving in an entirely different direction. A stylized aesthetic, wonderful ploofs of color, and a focus...

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is ridiculous and over the top in all the right ways photo
Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is ridiculous and over the top in all the right ways
by Alessandro Fillari

The Devil May Cry franchise has experienced some strange happenings in recent years. After the release of Ninja Theory's reboot and many debates among fans about what direction it should go next, the future of the franchise felt uncertain. Thankfully before the end of 2014, Capcom announced plans for a one-two punch of releases for its much-loved and hotly debated action franchise, with each one representing different ends of the DMC spectrum. Now just a month after the release of the excellent DmC: Definitive Edition, Capcom is readying its next hit with a revisit to the flawed but super fun Devil May Cry 4.

As the first DMC title on seventh-generation consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360), 2008's Devil May Cry 4 had a lot of expectations to live up to following its amazing predecessor (DMC3: Special Edition). Initially, fans of the series weren't too fond of the new central character Nero, along with the move to multiplatform, but in the end they were largely pleased with how the final game turned out.

Unfortunately, there was a sense that it felt a bit unfinished given the severe amount of recycled content and backtracking throughout. Despite this, many of the hardcore DMC fans still view it favorably and yearned for a continuation of this style of combat. Capcom seeks to do just that with the Special Edition for DMC4, which features the largest roster of characters ever in a DMC title.

With the release of Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition set for this summer, Capcom invited me out to a special hands-on session, and I got to experience just what the new roster brings to the table. With the same team behind Devil May Cry 4 returning, including director Hideaki Itsuno, they plan to reinvigorate DMC4 with some serious style and a sizable upgrade. And with fans still hoping for a brand new installment, this release will no doubt be the next best thing.

Dark Souls II weapon durability fix on the way

In Dark Souls II, the speed with which weapons degrade is tied to the frame rate. That system wasn't an issue for those of us who played the sequel on last-generation consoles, but it has been an annoyance for PC, PS4, and Xb...

Some metal bands, not the Castle Crashers devs, play Evolve DLC

A video with a misleading title led me to accidentally watch an Evolve DLC video. "Behemoth plays Behemoth" is less Dan Paladin and Tom Fulp, and more metal bands I've never heard of. But, if you're looking for fantastic insight and well-thought-out critique such as "I loved killing them; they were pissing me off," and "It's pretty much like being on-stage," then do I ever have the video for you.

A better look at our beloved Conker in Project Spark

That last trailer for Conker's arrival in Project Spark didn't go over so well. There was no getting around the disappointment of seeing a long abandoned (but never forgotten!) character return not in his own adventure, but ...
