Resident Evil costumes

Lady Hunk and Rachel are prepped for Resident Evil: Revelations 2


And Xbox One players get online co-op at last
Apr 23
The Resident Evil series has pulled some mighty strange stuff over the years that I've just come to accept. Hell, I'm practically numb to the silliness by now. Short shorts-wearing Lady Hunk? An oversized teddy bear with a gu... read
Animal Crossing is in the house
Nintendo is back with more crossover content for Mario Kart 8 and even as an on-again, off-again fan of the series, today feels reminiscent of waking up on Christmas morning with confidence that the present you most wanted th... read feature

Scientists play God in Black Ops III's latest teaser


So little shooting
Apr 23
Activision's officially unveiling Call of Duty: Black Ops III on April 26, but it's not being secretive about the title. The latest teaser trailer outright states the game's name. That's not where the mystery lies. What... read

Halo 5 pre-orders

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


Are you a gambler?
Apr 20
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 ... read
Evolve

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


Well, that's a disappointment
Apr 17
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. read

Mario Kart 8

Mario Kart 8's 200cc class put to the test on Piranha Plant Pipeway


It'll be hard to go back to 150cc
Apr 08
We're about two weeks out from Nintendo adding the speedy new 200cc class to Mario Kart 8. After watching a few of these side-by-side comparison videos between 200cc and 150cc, it already feels like I'm growing accustomed to... read

Pre-order justified?

Mario Kart 8's new 200cc class compared to 150cc


I'm going to stay away from the leaderboards
Apr 02
After Nintendo updates Mario Kart 8 on April 23, there will be a brand new racing class available for free: 200cc. To give us a better sense of how quick it is, here's a side-by-side comparison of 200cc and the game's curren... read

Like the Burger King of mayhem

Despite all evidence to the contrary, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege isn't just about destroying track homes until a hostage is either saved or killed. It's much more tactical than that. Sometimes you have to go on the ... read
Halo Online

Halo Online doesn't look half bad in motion


Relatively speaking
Mar 26
Yeah, this is about what I would expect from a free-to-play, multiplayer-only Halo game for Russia. That fast-forwarded run through the customization menu at 0:33 is telling -- rentable weapons, boosts, and "special offers."... read

Multiplayer-only Halo Online headed to Russia


You know what's good? Money

Halo Online sounds like something you'd see scribbled on a homemade DVD complete with copyright-infringing cover art but, no, it's a proper PC game in development at Saber Interactive. Granted, it's a free-to-play, multiplaye... read
Upsilon Circuit preview

Upsilon Circuit could redefine multiplayer in online gaming


Uncharted territory
Mar 20
Robot Loves Kitty's ambitious Upsilon Circuit is what I would consider the quintessential slow-burn, developing story in independent games today. In keeping with the premise of the TV game show-inspired title, the New England... read

RE: Revelations 2

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 takes Raid online by end of month


Someone to (Terra)save you

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has been a solid showing from Capcom thus far. The only real snag has been the approach to cooperative play, as it's not yet available for Raid mode. That'll change within a few week's time. ... read

Are you a taunter? I'm not. Okay, well, I try not to be. But then developers go and design achievements around taunting X amount of times, and it'd be rude not to oblige them probably. Or there's some jerk in Awesomenauts who... read

I'm a total newcomer to the Rainbow Six series but I quite liked Siege's wall-blasting ways at E3 last year. Not so much for the tactical possibilities that destructible environments enable as the simple human desire to punc... read

It's great to see free maps in a multiplayer-centric game like Evolve, but -- there just had to be a but -- timed platform exclusivity? Considerably less good. When the maps Broken Hill Mine and Broken Hill Foundry debut on M... read
