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.

Dark Souls II re-release tops Japanese charts (but it's not as impressive as it sounds)

Dark Souls II's current-gen re-release Scholar of the First Sin found an opening in the Japanese sales charts and struck at an opportune moment. Most weeks, it would barely make a dent, but on this particular week, it wa...

Last call to get half the free Xbox 360 games this month

Ah, another public service announcement -- another opportunity for us to remind you to remember your coat and hat when going outside to play, lest you catch a cold. You'd lose your head if it weren't bolted to your neck....

EA's pulling the plug on four free-to-play PC games

Electronic Arts has its landmark franchises that are instantly identifiable with the publisher -- the sort of series that receive near-annual (if not yearly) installments. Battlefield, Need for Speed, and FIFA are three ...

Did you know Splatoon is going to release kind of soon? Nintendo's fully aware, and it wants to make sure you know too. But, it doesn't have any game-related information to share on April 14, 2015, so it sent along ten f...

A new batch of Sega Genesis games is getting the 3DS treatment

Nintendo 3DS owners have a fairly solid stable of new videogames to choose from. Sega's going the other direction and offering experiences that are remembered by most of the bygone days of Genesis gaming. In fact, the movemen...

Mortal Kombat X's fatalities too hard? Pay to make them easy

Fatalities are, in most people's opinion, the coolest part of Mortal Kombat. In a franchise about ruthlessly beating up your opponent, fatalities are when these games are at their most brutal -- a blood-drenched pot of gold a...
