Oculus VR short 'Henry' wins an Emmy

One of the first things I did when I plugged my Oculus Rift in was watch Henry. It was a bit weird because I had to watch it alone, then have my wife watch it after to share the experience together (something VR will have to address in fami...   read

A Telltale published Mr. Robot game is out today, but it's not what you think it is

Surprise! There's a new Mr. Robot game available on Android and iOS from Telltale, but it's not a full-blown "Elliot will remember that" adventure. Instead, it's taking the route of a text adventure, in the same universe as the show, f...   read

Pikachu still loves ketchup after all these years

For my money, there's no beating the Slowpoke song (I actually bought that corresponding 3DS theme), but this little ditty from the animated series Pokémon XYZ gets points for acknowledging Pikachu's undying love of ketchup. Now the...   read

I'd take a Stranger Things adventure game

Artist Jacob Janerka took a break from developing his game Paradigm to mock up this homage to the recent Netflix darling Stranger Things. The fairly-non-cloying ode to 80s adventure flicks (it's Goonies-ish and references Star Wars a lot) ...   read

The Sonic and Dead Rising movie folks are making a live-action Life is Strange

Life, uh, finds a way...to be strange. Episodic hella-teen adventure Life is Strange is getting a live-action series, replacing the choice-based game with some pre-scripted teen drama, like a second Butterfly Effect (god that movie fucking ...   read

Battlefield TV show is a real thing, featuring the series' trademark 'robust storytelling'

Finally, the Seinfeld apartment recreated in Doom 2

In a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of Things Only '90s Kids Will Remember (and perfectly attuned to my being on the Seinfeld anniversary arc of Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jerry's apartment from Seinfeld has been remade in Doom II by one Doug Keene...   read

Just when you thought the Mega Man cartoon couldn't get any weirder

So, that Mega Man cartoon. It's a thing. It's coming next year, and it follows Mega Man's alter-go "Aki Light" as he...attends school and moonlights as the Blue Bomber. It's...like, you know, whatever. But new details from IGN have brought ...   read

The new Mega Man cartoon looks uh, well you'll see

Fans have basically given up hope. Sure Capcom is pumping out Mega Man merchandise daily, and there's another mobile game on the way, but the series has been in limbo -- no question about it. There was a glimmer of hope though in the new ca...   read

Quantum Break is the 'best-selling new Microsoft Studios IP of this generation'

That new Mega Man cartoon looks like it's seriously happening

I've seen a ton of video game related projects come and go. Some director or developer off-handedly mentions something about a TV series or a spinoff game in an interview, people go wild for a few days, and then nothing happens for over a d...   read

One year later, the Sons of Anarchy game may have been a scam

Back in August 2015 it came to my attention that the episodic Sons of Anarchy game, released six months prior, had virtually no updates regarding a follow-up -- despite the fact that a Season Pass was sold upfront. The developer and publish...   read

Powers Season 2 will debut in May, still free on PS Plus

PlayStation Plus added a nice extra last year with Powers, the first PSN exclusive TV show. Sure it was cheesy and the budget isn't great, but there are some heavy-hitting actors that at least make it entertaining. Well, the show is returni...   read

House of Cards continues gaming cameos with extra indie cred

ESPN tries to be hip with the LoL kids

I know the general response to ESPN's embarrassing attempts at referencing League of Legends will be cutting snark, and I get that. They are painfully out of touch and trying too hard. But I also can't help but find it kind of end...   read

Seth Rogen is making a show about a socially inept gamer who saves the world

I like a lot of Seth Rogen joints for a multitude of reasons, but in his attempt to scattershot ideas with his writing partner Evan Goldberg over cross joints, he can come up with some pretty bad stuff. That basically sums up my feelin...   read

PlayStation Vue is off to a good start, but it needs a bit more time
