School Girl Zombie Hunter English trailer suggests localization, but is absolutely NSFW

The only thing that irritates me more than changing iconic hats is when in zombie-related media people refuse to refer to them as just "zombies." No, they have to try ever so hard to avoid the term, preferring phrases like "those...those......   read

OK so there is one last game from Tokyo Game Show I wanted to talk about. It's an odd one you may have heard of by now, and assuming you read the title to this article, you should have a good idea of what the game is about. Yep, in the rece...   read

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

One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the road

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
