Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes platform exclusive DLC will eventually see a full release

I really enjoyed Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for what it was, and despite many people calling it a "short" game, I've clocked around 30 hours so far -- far more than the vast majority of regular releases. Part of ...

New Ace Attorney trailer is packed with Meiji Japan style

When we told you about the announcement of a new Ace Attorney 3DS game, Grand Turnabout Trial - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke, I mentioned that I thought it would be pretty difficult for Nintendo's localization...

JRPG Fortuna Magus now available on iPad and iPhone

Have you tried any of the Kemco JRPGs for mobile devices? I have yet to spend much time with any of their offerings, which is strange as they do look right up my alley. People seem to have some pretty nice things to say abou...

Hip Swedish dude fingersnaps the Super Mario theme

Hug, kiss, and chest bump total strangers in PlayStation Home

I forget that PlayStation Home is still a functional piece of software that receives regular content updates, not some lost relic to marvel (and poke fun) at. It's hard to say who in their right mind is messing around with H...

The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series photo
The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The developers at Toys For Bob are back in the saddle with Skylanders Trap Team, the next entry in their hit toys-meet-videogame franchise. This time the hook involves you capturing villains and enslaving brainwashing reforming them to work for you. Same overall formula where you use Skylanders both old and new, but now you have the aid of all the bad guys.

This means a new Portal of Power, plus a whole new set of toys specifically designed for capturing the villains.

Video: Watch Dogs' Jonathan Morin talks delays, multiplayer, and the franchise's future
by Max Scoville

After almost two years of wringing my sweaty little hands and looking at screenshots like a schlub, I finally got to take Watch Dogs for a spin last week. After hacking into steam pipes and blowing up cars for two hours, I took a moment to chat with the game's creative director Jonathan Morin.

Watch Dogs multiplayer video shows how you'll watch dogs, dog

Because of Ubisoft's persistent insistence on "blending single- and multiplayer experiences," this Watch Dogs video doesn't so much show you a multiplayer mode, but rather what you can expect from others as you play the...
