Review: RIGS: Mechanized Combat League

Abandoned title 5734L3R reboots as RE5734L3R

5734L3R (pronounced Stealer), the intriguing post-apocalyptic robotic future title that seemed to disappear as quickly as it had arrived is back, perhaps; or at least this shiny new teaser trailer for it seems to indicate it is for no...

Dumb Idiot Ideas: Metal Gear Solid ski gloves and panties

Hey, did you see those Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes track jackets and sneakers that Puma's making? They're pretty cool, but a franchise with such awesome character and mechanical designs really deserves more creative merchandising. Her...

Call of Duty: Online throws robot zombies into the mix

Call of Duty: Online -- the Chinese-exclusive, free-to-play, online only title -- has a new trailer. The fact that it exists isn't necessarily significant; the fact that it contains menacing robot zombies is most certainly significant...
