As if yesterday's rumor that Microsoft is set to reveal an improved Xbox One controller in June wasn't substantiated enough, we have an international retailer to help back everything up. Bless those international retailers; t...

Lego Jurassic World isn't as 'completely safe' as they'd like you to think

Look, Jurassic Park people. Just because you have this wrapped up in a Lego veneer doesn't mean the outcome's going to be any different. We've all seen the movies. Why should we expect vicious dinosaurs won't attack this time? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a third time, and I never should've watched Jurassic Park III.

Deep Silver is most likely publishing Bloodstained

[Update: Doug Wolf, the attorney of record, called us back and confirmed that he filed the trademark on behalf of Koch Media. It looks like this rumor pans out, although Deep Silver has yet to respond.] When Koji Igarash...

Xbox One looks like it's getting a better, newer controller after E3

It seems as if there's a subtle but big change on the horizon for the Xbox One controller. The current model features a proprietary audio jack that requires an adapter (sold separately for $25) to use with normal headphones. ...

FIFA 16 includes women's national teams (finally)

The FIFA video game series has been around for two decades, and in that time, it's been a boys only club. There's been outside pressure to reform, notably in 2013 when Spanish player Vero Boquete started a petition to u...

Saudi Arabian soccer fans have some excellent Mortal Kombat choreography

If the visiting Persepolis F.C. players felt like they got an icy reception at their recent Asian Champions League match, well, it's because they did. Al Hilal's stadium was filled with fans who created a Mortal Kombat ...

Sony exec calls Vita a 'legacy platform'

Those who hold out hope that Sony will change course and start avidly supporting the Vita may want to finally give up on that pipe dream. The outlook for the PlayStation handheld has been grim, and is even more so after a top...

Legendary weapons now drop three times as often in Borderlands

While dedicated players still roam the fringes of the Borderlands, Gearbox has been playing the part of mad scientist. Or, at least normal scientist. The developer's been toying with the way that legendary drops function in t...

'What Remains of Edith Finch?' is far creepier than I could've imagined

"What fucked up person came up with this?" I asked. Giant Sparrow creative director Ian Dallas sheepishly raised his hand. He knew I wasn't admonishing him, though; the expression on my face and the excitement in my voice gav...

Battlefield Hardline's new add-on trailer has shades of Hotline Miami

EA and Visceral would want you to watch this new Battlefield Hardline trailer and take away the broader details of the upcoming Criminal Activity DLC. But, that's near impossible when there are guys with guns weari...

Amazon's selling PS4s bundled with a free year of PlayStation Plus

The late adopters continually have justification for putting off purchasing a new console. You know, as long as they don't mind the extra time on legacy systems. The latest reasoning comes from Amazon in a sneaky good deal. A...

Nintendo and Humble team up for first console/handheld Humble Bundle

Life is Strange: Episode Three Achievement guide

We're at the halfway point of Life is Strange, and while the story is moving right along, the Achievement lists remain similar. Ten optional photos to snap in every episode, and Chaos Theory is no different. This guide s...

Review: Life is Strange: Chaos Theory

I'm worried about Life is Strange. But, it's not the same concern usually expressed when a game's teetering dangerously close to mediocrity or worse. It's the type of uneasiness reserved for a title that's taken three install...

There are some real winners on the Summer Games Done Quick schedule

Even though watching streams of people playing video games is all the rage, I can never get into it. I have a backlog that never seems to get any smaller, so it feels a bit unproductive to watch other people whittle away at t...

Sony opens first-party VR-focused studio, names it after Kanye's baby

Sony's sure taking virtual reality seriously. It wasn't long ago that we weren't completely positive if Project Morpheus was meant for a retail release, or if it were just a research and development project to show off emergi...

Life is Strange looks like it's going to start heating up

The third episode of Life is Strange releases this week, and it appears as if the embattled-teen story will really pick up speed with this next installment. That is, if this trailer has anything to say about it. Thus fa...

Oculus Rift's recommended specs aren't as bad as you'd think

What kind of supercomputer is needed to transport a human from their realm of existence to some sort of virtual reality? Probably a ridiculously expensive one, right? Well, not quite. It isn't exactly cheap, but it's doable. ...

Like clockwork: Sony's E3 presser is evening of June 15

This year's E3 will be a bit busier than usual, due to some press conferences we're not used to seeing. Bethesda, Square Enix, and a PC-centric show will all play a part in making the news schedule more hectic than it wo...

Review: NERO

I don't know why I kept playing NERO. That's not a statement meant to express disdain. I literally don't know what -- but something -- drew me to keep trekking through this sad, enamoring world. Its gravitas has a gravity abo...

The Evil Within's last add-on is just as bloody as the rest
