So don't expect a new GTA game just yet

Addressing an earnings briefing (via Gamespot), CEO of Rockstar’s publisher Take-Two sa...
Oooh Yarny, kumbayaaaa
It’s not long now until puzzle-platformer Unravel is launched. On February 9, the world will be too distracted by how adorable Yarny is to notice many of the world’s ills, and we will at last have achieved global ...
Domo arigato Mr. Martian Roboto
The 1950s were considered the golden age of campy sci-fi films, with aliens often invading Earth alongside giant animals, and, of course, robots.
Fortified tries to recreate the feeling of those films in a third-pe...
Early Access in two weeks
This new trailer for the sci-fi single-player survival game The Solus Project shows off a lot of new content, and confirms some details that will surely make more than just me happy.
Specifically, the developers co...
Rocky Horror Far Cry Show
Oh, fantasy free me
Far Cry Primal has a new trailer and it's really well-produced. It's a reverse look at some of the major eras of combat in human history, all culminating in a showdown with a CGI sabretooth tiger.
But, it also reminded me of "Time Warp," and now I've been listening to that all morning long. It's just a jump to the left, then a step to the right...
Haha, the current site is classic
I still remember buying Minecraft in 2009, and the original site really hasn't changed all that much. But Mojang (and thus, Microsoft) has really been making strides since the acquisition, finally releasing the game on W...
The best part of Fallout games are often the mods. And with the settlement system and the texture packs involved, there have been some really great ones for Fallout 4. This one made me laugh repeatedly though, as the "Al...
Then buying won't be a leap of Faith
Before Mirror's Edge Catalyst releases on May 24, you have an opportunity to take it for a test drive and kick the wheels a little bit. Well, "test run" might be a more appropriate term considering this game is all about...
New demon-filled trailer and $120 deals
Hello everybody, I am the harbinger of Doom, id Software's Bethesda-published reboot of the brutal first-person shooter shown off last year. Turns out Doom'll turnout worldwide on May 13. That's for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Simple, flashy, over the top
Almost a decade ago, in my mid-teens, I was hugely into Naruto. As a socially awkward nerd who had just discovered that Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon were part of a larger media genre, I spent years avidly following the adven...
Xbox has a new video meant to pat itself on the back for 2015 and to let us know what it has up its sleeve for 2016 and beyond. The message is clear: "We kicked ass last year and we're going to do it again." Whether or not y...
And rollin' all over the place
April isn't that far off on the horizon, but it might as well be an eternity when you're eagerly awaiting a new game. For many, that game is Dark Souls III, a franchise that has the pedigree to make waiting unbearable.

And a few more songs
Harmonix has just dropped a rather large update on Rock Band 4, which fixes a number of issues that were plaguing the game. It's that one -- the one that wipes the leaderboards clean due to exploits -- so be prepared to start...

For a five-song expert marathon event

IGN put this graphics comparison video together to show ...
As classics such as The Thing and Alien vs. Predator have taught us, people get hurt when the temperature goes down. Rainbow Six Siege is already about hurting people (killing them, in fact!), so the game's fi...
Four maps and some zombies
It's still crazy to me that I'm loading up a Call of Duty DLC pack first on PlayStation 4. After years of Microsoft-dominated timed exclusivity Sony finally has its shot at heading it up, and it has perfect timing with Black Ops III.
As one of the best Call of Duty games in years, it allows Awakening plenty of room to breathe, and lets Treyarch be its unconventional self.
Technland has announced that come February 9, you won't be able to buy vanilla Dying Light digitally. Instead, it will be removed entirely, and replaced with the Enhanced Edition of the game on February 12.
Just in case you were worried that LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens wouldn't have a Season Pass, WB confirmed it this morning. If you spring for the deluxe edition of the game though, coming this June, you'll gain acces...
Impressions of a solo playthrough

Because of course it is
In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, the next entry in Warner Bros. and TT Games' popular LEGO video game series is based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
While the companies presumably would have liked to a...
Quests, perks, and workshop improvements
For those of you still roaming about Boston in Fallout 4, you'll be happy to know that your time in the city of lobster rolls should soon be more polished. If you're playing on PC, the automatic update is available right now....
Ubisoft extended the Division closed beta for a day, but there may be hope yet if you wanted to get in. According to this post from the Xbox Italy Facebook account, Microsoft will host an event that's open to everyone fr...
Over in Japan, where amazing things happen on a constant basis, From Software is hosting a special exhibit for Dark Souls III. It's over at 109 Men's mall in Shibuya, and you can witness it for yourself courtesy of these scre...
Trailer gets me superhot and bothered
Superhot has been looking supercool for a while now; those immediately sold on the initial concept have had to wait for a superlong time. The wait is set to be over supersoon; Superhot will release on Linux, Mac, and Win...
