The Division's recent Steam reviews are 'overwhelmingly negative'

It looks like there's been...some kind of fissure, maybe, between fans of The Division and The Division itself. The overall Steam reviews for Tom Clancy's estate's latest martial law fantasy are "Mixed" over the four months since release. T...   read

The Division is now the biggest new IP launch ever

Ubisoft has confirmed The Division has 9.5 million registered users, making it the most successful launch ever.  That’s not 9.5 million sales, mind you - registered users means people in the same household may be using the same c...   read

One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the road

I'm not sure headline limitations and economy allow for it, but "One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the last of us" was my initial joke, but then I felt like it'd take explanation and at that point you're pushing the boundaries of what is a ...   read

Here's what to expect from the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta

You're gonna lose that foot: Here's the Gears of War 4 box art

Cover art posts are usually boring, but this one's straight-up dangerous. The trench foot is an underrated concern in today's Apple Watch-wearing, Uber-riding society. But, stand in a puddle too long? Lop it off, doc. Those dogs ain't barki...   read

Gears of War 4 hitting Xbox One on October 11 worldwide

Earlier this year we heard about a vague bump in Gears of War 4's release window, from holiday 2016 to fall 2016. Today we have some more specificity: Gears of War 4 is releasing on October 11 of this year. For those unwilling and/or incapa...   read

Review: Quantum Break

Quantum Break is a video game that is not comfortable being only a video game. Born from Microsoft's now-abandoned cross-media initiative, Quantum Break is many things, only a fraction of them being a video game. It's advertised a...   read

Xbox thinks Quantum Break might be a 'mega hit'

It's always suspect when a publisher claims that a not-yet-released game is going to be a success. They have a vested interest in the game selling well, so it behooves them to drum up even more excitement. Xbox is speculating that Quantum B...   read

Uncharted 4 video extols the power of the PS4

Sniper Elite 4, now with more Assassin's Creed

For whatever reason -- perhaps through no fault of its own -- I can't help but see the workings of other games when I look at Sniper Elite. Rube Goldberg-lite environmental executions remind me of Hitman. Third-person stealth melee killing ...   read

Quantum Break finds Nirvana but not peace

Although it won't launch for another three weeks, Quantum Break has a launch trailer. That's the weird dilution of terminology in the games industry today -- words used because they sound good and not because they're accurate. Really,...   read

Eat rats

Ubisoft Presents Steven Hansen's Tom Clancy's The Division is an MMO-lite a la Destiny, but that doesn't mean it can't bring in some moral choice flavor dialogue. Eats rats or starve!   read

Gears of War 4 proves Marcus Fenix actually had sex

Quantum Break plays like a dream

Quantum Break sure has changed over the last four years
