PlayStation All-Stars Island wants you to drink Coke Zero

I can't look at PlayStation All-Stars Island without laughing. While some might be put off by the blatant advertising tie-in with Coca-Cola Zero for this free iOS and Android game -- that plane is beyond ridiculous, I'll admit -- it's just ...

Yakuza 1&2 HD ad features a broken marriage, or something

Yakuza and Yakuza 2 are getting the HD treatment, though as it stands the bundle is exclusive to both the Wii U and Japan. Because I'm still bitter about Valkyria Chronicles, I'll just assume they're never coming stateside because, guess w...

Obama campaign ads to hit Madden 13 and other EA titles
