Mortal Kombat X
Two more months. Just two more months. That's what I have to keep telling myself while agonizing over the release of Mortal Kombat X. As someone who logged nearly 7,000 matches into the last Mortal Kombat, and still plays Injustice from time to time, any new info is good news, and NetherRealm has recently dropped a lot of details on the game's online modes.

Halo 5: Guardians
I am not opposed to change. While certain circles of Halo fans find it popular to hate Halo 4, I've always appreciated what 343 Industries did with that game. Sprint was a logical next step to character movement, while loadou...   read

Dibs on Nisha
"Behind every great man is a great woman." Screw that, says Nisha. While Handsome Jack is sitting in a climate-controlled bunker, cowering from the awesome might of the Vault Hunters and bandit gangs, Nisha fights her enemies...   read

Battleborn
When Battleborn was first announced, there were certain trigger words my mind immediately connected before I had read a single word about the game. "Gearbox, shooter, color. Oh, I wonder what the loot drop rate is like," I sa...   read

Titan Souls preview
  Watch Video Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or late...   read

Mortal Kombat X preview
I got to play Mortal Kombat X for a half hour during PAX Prime, and that made me happier than a pig in whatever pigs love to be in. After 5,000 matches played online between Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us, my anti...   read

Destiny
After being frustratingly hush-hush about Destiny, Bungie put the game out in the wild in a big way this past E3, culminating with the recent weekend alpha. In an interview with the PlayStation Blog, senior environmental arti...   read

Watch Dogs
With nearly a month past release, it's safe to say the internet rage surrounding Watch Dogs' visual fidelity has largely passed. Still, fans have found ways to mod the PC version to look better, and not with the usual assortm...   read

Dragon Ball Z
  Watch Video Another year brings another Dragon Ball fighter, but this time, the series has new hardware to play with. Dragon Ball Xenoverse is the next entry of Dragon Ball Z arena fighters, bringing the franchise to the Xbox One and Pl...   read

Watch Dogs
  Watch Video Remember when everyone was mad at the idea of a game console that comes with an always on, always watching and listening camera? Well thanks to this Watch Dogs easter egg, we have a nice visual representation of what the NSA...   read

Madden
  Watch Video Amongst all the E3 hubbub about games like, Mortal Kombat X, Destiny, and Halo 5, let's not forget that August will bring us our annual Madden. Teasing what will be brought to the show, the Madden 15 E3 trailer implies, to m...   read

Forza
So it seems Forza Horizon 2, unlike Forza 5, will not be running at 60 frames per second. While it will still display in 1080p, the open-world nature of Horizon doesn't seems to play nice with the idea of a locked 60fps rate,...   read

  Watch Video After spending a good amount of time teasing, Team Ninja has announced Female Tengu for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. Sporting a pair of wings and a devilish demeanor, she reminds me of Devil Jin quite a bit. More than the desig...   read

Like many before them, Asus has taken a stab at making their own Steam Machine, and from the spec end, it seems they've hit a pretty good mark. Boasting an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti graphics card, Intel Core i7 processor, and ...   read

  Watch Video If you are playing, will be playing, or don't care either way about Ultra Street Fighter IV, the game's story is probably not what comes to mind whenever it's brought up. That said, it hasn't stopped Capcom from creating ani...   read

  Watch Video So middle school for me involved many brain-rotting activities, not the least of which was the countless amount of hours spent watching machinima videos. While I don't have the free time that I used to, it's still a joy to w...   read

Dead Rising
[Update: The Steam database entry for Dead Rising 3 was removed shortly after this posting.] It's not uncommon to see a highly touted console exclusive make its way to PC, and it seems that Dead Rising 3 is next. Via a postin...   read

  Watch Video I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Deadpool. It's not that I dislike his humor or self-aware, fourth-wall breaking schtick. Rather, it's that I feel too few people can actually utilize said schtick into anything inte...   read
