Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy gets a name, gameplay

That remake of the first three Crash Bandicoot games (Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped) has a name, Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy, and it looks pretty neat. I've been ...   read

Blizzard's 10th anniversary of BlizzCon was sufficiently grandiose

I attended my first BlizzCon this year, and I doubt it'll be my last. Amidst a sea of people at nearly every Overwatch event (seriously, all the panels were jam-packed, some with no standing room, as were all of the demo stations -- it...   read

Here's what the second ever Call of Duty XP event looks like

Activision doesn't hold "XP" events very often. In fact this year's celebration is the second XP ever -- it's far from an annual event like BlizzCon seeing as the first was held all the way back in 2011. So naturally they'd want to go all-o...   read

They've outdone themselves with the new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare zombies mode

At the Call of Duty XP event, one fixture stands out the most -- Zombies in Spaceland. Not only does it house demo stations for the upcoming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare minigame, but a full-on laser tag arena as well. It's almost li...   read

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the next game to commit to class-based multiplayer

Overwatch was far from the first game to use the "class-based" setup, but it sure is popularizing it. With the advent of franchises like Quake and Gears of War adopting it, it doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. A...   read

Skylanders Imaginators, the newest game in the series, is basically Diablo

Activision is in a unique position at this point. It basically started the video game toys-to-life market, and now, a major competitor has pulled out entirely. If it was worried before, it's less worried now. It's just as well as the compan...   read

Blizzard's HQ is just as over the top as you'd expect

I had the chance to visit Blizzard's headquarters in Irvine, California last week for an Overwatch event, which has basically been a lifelong dream of mine since I first played The Lost Vikings on the SNES. It didn't disappoint ei...   read

Love is in the air for Destiny's Crimson Days

After a long holiday, Bungie is back to work this week. For the first update of the new year, Destiny will be adding an event not unlike the Festival of the Lost from Halloween. Except since this one is coming in February, it's all about sp...   read

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer darkslides a powerline

Yep, that looks like a Tony Hawk game all right. There are highly technical tricks on absurdly dangerous terrain. Grinding that increases speed instead of decreasing it. Just the right amount of jank in aerial maneuvers, as if skaters can ...   read

Activision publishing companion game to this year's Peanuts Movie

Those trailers for The Peanuts Movie are pretty dang cute. It's neat to see the computer models and animation done in the style of the old cartoons. The movie will show up in theaters on November 6. In a move hearkening back to the 1990s, ...   read

Activision confirms Skylanders SuperChargers, coming this year

Skylanders pioneered the recent toys-to-life market, and from there, moved on to giant figures, then to swappable toys, and eventually, to "traps." Now Activision is taking the series to vehicles with SuperChargers. Evidently maps will be ...   read

Geometry Wars 3 is evolving with 40 new stages and Hardcore Mode

This is unexpected. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is rolling out a free update across all platforms (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC) on March 31, 2015 that's large enough to warrant a name change. Going forward, the game will be known as G...   read

Activision announces sidescroller Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze

If you are like me, you have not really followed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a couple decades. The last thing I really remember was 1991's The Secret of the Ooze and Turtles in Time on the Super NES. Sure, I have heard snippets abou...   read
