Sony announces Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Today at the PSX, Sony announced another Uncharted (sort of, as this is DLC), but this one thankfully doesn't seem to involve Drake (too much Drake!). No, the mysterious trailer showcased a woman in disguise, before popping off her mas...   read

Nintendo finally reveals NX details, it's called the 'Nintendo Switch'

Much like Morpheus rose from the ashes to become PSVR, or Dolphin became GameCube, the NX has become the "Nintendo Switch." Nintendo kicked off its promised announcement this morning by showing its capabilities, like "switching" to a game f...   read

The Gears of War Xbox One S is a neat tribute to the series

I wasn't tasked with designing the machine, but I'm hard-pressed to think of a look for a Gears of War Xbox One S that better fits the franchise. This thing is unapologetically brash, ostentatious, and indiscreet -- all words that...   read

Nintendo showcases more bonkers Pokemon Sun and Moon forms

It's that time of year -- the time when Nintendo and The Pokemon Company will send us droplets of Pokemon Sun & Moon info every few days or so, and we'll like it! The new tidbit has to do with Rockruff, who is basically assimilatin...   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

Review: Xbox One S

Microsoft had a lot of catching up to do. I'll spare you the history once again of how badly it bungled the announcement of the Xbox One, but since then, it has made strides. The UI is a lot better than it used to be (especially now with th...   read

Overwatch's Ana feels like a true sniper, and a welcome addition to the game

We all knew a support was coming to Overwatch, but I didn't expect Pharah's mom, and I especially didn't expect her to be in playable state on the PTR today. Yes, if you're so inclined, you can boot up your Battle.net client right...   read

Street Fighter Unlimited cover gallery pays tribute to the classics

It doesn't look like the majority of fans consider Street Fighter V to be a high point for the series. That's sad. The good news is, Udon's current run of Street Fighter comics is arguably the best they've yet produced in their 10-plus-year...   read

LawBreakers defies both gravity and expectations

For the past couple of years, a very specific series of actions has played out at pre-E3 events in Los Angeles. As part of a large group, we've demoed two team shooters (I'll refrain from naming them). After the round ended and everyone had...   read

Ryu gets his punk ass beat in Street Fighter V's story mode
