In this era of immediacy, we don't have to wait too long for companies to break their silences -- we can just bug them on Twitter. After being asked about the exclusive terms for Dead Rising 4, which debuted at the Microsoft conference, Cap...   read

Paper Mario: Color Splash draws ire of Nintendo fans, looks alright

Here's all the hardware news out of E3 2016

While E3's generally all about the games, this year we saw a pretty big turnout for hardware too: video cards, new consoles, and of course more virtual reality than we really know what to do with. So here's a roundup of all things physical ...   read

I hope Detroit: Become Human lives up to its tense E3 showing

Until this week at E3, when I thought of Detroit: Become Human, I thought about Kara the android. But now I have a new name and face to associate with Quantic Dream's PlayStation 4 neo-noir thriller: Connor. Dude does not mess around! ...   read

Ha, the new Mario Party art is lifted from a SpagettiOs can

As pointed out by an astute commenter yesterday, the art for Mario Party: Star Rush seems to have been generously lifted off of an official Nintendo SpagettiOs can. It makes you wonder how many times the publisher has done this pr...   read

Injustice 2 continues to be a ridiculous fun-to-watch spectacle

I am nothing if not a generous and kind soul, so I will say this now to those of you who may want to disregard my opinion: I don't play fighting games. I have in the past (I'm a Soul Calibur dude), but it's just never been my genre of choic...   read

Xbox's new Play Anywhere initiative doesn't necessarily include cross-play

The Sanchize ruined my first game as the LA Rams

A fun quiz, for you

Is this a lyric from ZZ Top's 'Burger Man,' or something said on an E3 stage?

For a rock band formed in Houston, Texas in 1969, ZZ Top is weird. But in the most straight-faced way that you might not catch if you don't stop and look, kind of like reading the headline "Man bites dog." Two front men with dark sunglasses...   read
