‘Batman: Arkham Knight’: Warner Bros. Apologizes For Shoddy PC Port, Delays Batgirl DLC

At this point, it goes without saying that the gaming community is “miffed” over the whole Batman: Arkham Knight being shoddy on PC thing. To say that it was shameful for all involved — which actually didn’t include developer Rocksteady, apparently — would be an understatement. Considering the fact that the previous two games ran […]

News of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, video as well, has been pouring out of 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, but the behind-the-scenes trailer shown late yesterday may be some of the best we’ve seen yet.

‘Mr. Robot’ Impressions: Episode 1.2

The previous episodes of Mr. Robot may have come off as a little slow, apart from the cliffhanger of an ending, but the third episode, titled 1-2_D3BUG.mkv, changes up the show’s potential future quite a bit. Warning: Spoilers ahead It also gives us viewers more insight into the dark… tendencies, we’ll call them, of Evil […]

‘Mr. Robot’ Impressions: Episode 1.1

When last we left off on Mr. Robot, “protagonist” of sorts Elliot Aldersion was in complete disbelief. After setting into motion the events that would frame an innocent person for a far-reaching hacking scandal, he’s dragged by men in black to a new location — and a familiar face from the corporation he hacked, Evil […]

‘Street Fighter V’ Adding Ken To The Roster

You just about can’t have a Street Fighter game unless Ken is in it, and Capcom brought word out of San Diego Comic-Con that Ken will, in fact, be playable in Street Fighter V — but he won’t quite be the same Ken you’re used to. To further differentiate himself from eternal rival and sparring […]

‘Team Fortress 2’ Gun Mettle Update Brings Major Changes, But What Does It Mean For The Future?

Valve released perhaps one of its biggest updates in some time for Team Fortress 2.

‘Final Fantasy VII’ Remake: Is It A Good Thing Or A Bad Thing?

Ever since that infamous tech demo that appeared to show a Final Fantasy VII remake, fans have been clamoring for a remake of the classic entry in the long-running RPG series. It almost seemed like a license to print money, an obvious business decision for the company. My question is, do we really want a […]

Eiji Tsuburaya, Co-Creator Of ‘Godzilla,’ Gets A Google Doodle

Only a few days after Eiji Tsuburaya’s 114th birthday, Google honored the co-creator of the infamous Godzilla by making a Google Doodle in his honor.

‘Street Fighter V’ Beta To Include Six Characters, Three Stages And… No Local Play?

If you didn’t get the chance to get your hands on the Street Fighter V demo during the recent ComicCon, don’t fret; Capcom will be releasing the demo on the PlayStation 4 later this month on July 23. In fact, you’ll get a little more out of the demo… and a little less. First, the […]

Oh, and PlayStation 3 fans. Let’s […]

New PS4 Model Will Be Quieter, Faster, Lighter

It hasn’t been very long since the PlayStation 4 was first released by Sony — two years, at least — but the company is already planning to roll out a hardware revision for the PS4 – one that seems to be significantly improved over its predecessor. And cheaper for Sony to manufacture, too. Pocket News […]

‘Mr. Robot’ Impressions: Episode 1.0

It’s difficult to make real hacking something entertaining on the silver screen, or any screen for that matter – and yet within the first few minutes of the series’ first episode, Mr. Robot showed vigilante hacker Elliot completely dismantling a business owner whose illegal activities were downright disgusting. Thanks in no small part to the […]

‘Mortal Kombat X’: Predator Will Soon Be A Playable Fighter

‘Burnout Paradise’ Xbox One Compatibility Could Be A Reality

Burnout Paradise was easily one of the best racing titles on the Xbox 360, and developer Criterion is pushing Microsoft to bring the classic, breakneck-speed racer to the Xbox One.

Final Fantasy XIV was supposed to be making its way to the Mac OS just in time for the release of the game’s expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, but the company has now delayed the release due to a significant number of users reporting performance issues, among other things. The problem, apparently, is that Square […]

‘Just Cause 3’ Destruction Ramped Up, To Be Physics-Driven

Just Cause 3 protagonist Rico Rodriguez has a particular way of getting past obstacles. Locked door standing between you and your objective?

‘Shenmue 3’ Kickstarter To Offer Physical Copies Of Upcoming Sequel

When Shenmue 3 was officially announced during Sony’s E3 2015 press conference, there was an uproarious applause and, at once, a collective, big sigh of relief; after all of this time, the oft-demanded sequel in the Shenmue series, which began and abruptly ended during the era of Sega’s Dreamcast console, was finally coming. Considering the […]

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Batgirl DLC Given A Price, Release Date

Batman finds numerous ways to keep himself entertained as he pummels baddies into the ground during the story mode, but he’s left plenty of action for Batgirl — especially since the two will be starring in a prequel. Rather than have Batman at the fore as he dispatches enemies with ease, Batgirl will be taking […]

‘Marvel Heroes 2015’ Review: Second Time’s The Charm?

Last year the developers over at Gazillion Entertainment, headed up by Diablo veteran David Brevik, launched their free-to-play action RPG / MMO hybrid, Marvel Heroes.

The Xbox One will reportedly be launching without the headset adapter that supports current-generation and at least some upcoming third-party headsets, according to recent reports from multiple sources.

Grand Theft Auto Online Players To Receive $250,000 In-Game Cash This Week

‘Battlefield 4’ To Promote Playing The Objective With Progression System Rehaul

Battlefield 4’s multiplayer progression will allow you to stick with your play style, DICE revealed in a recent blog post.

‘Total War: Rome 2’ Second Patch Brings Better Performance, Tons Of Fixes

Given that Total War: Rome 2 was massive in scale – even more massive than its ambitious predecessors – it was expected that there might be a bug or two when the game launched, but what gamers found out that there weren’t a few. There were many. Rome wasn’t built in a day, after all. […]

‘Grand Theft Auto 5’ Review Round-Up

Rockstar Games has built up a solid reputation for releasing quality Grand Theft Auto titles for quite some time now, so it goes without saying that expectations were high – really high – for tomorrow’s release of Grand Theft Auto 5, the latest in the developer’s open-world hit franchise. Judging from all of the Grand […]

‘Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs’ Review: Unfamiliar Territory

Amnesia: The Dark Descent, the first in what would eventually become a franchise from a small, relatively unknown developer (Frictional Games), was arguably one of the most terrifying video games ever made.

‘Grand Theft Auto 5’ PC Petition Surpasses 350,000 Signatures, Rockstar Still Quiet

The release of Grand Theft Auto 5 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is just around the corner – that’s tomorrow, if you’ve lost track of time – but so far Rockstar has kept quiet about whether or not a PC version will be happening. Naturally, PC gamers aren’t happy. A petition to port the […]

‘Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’ Review Part One: Rising From The Ashes

‘Tomb Raider’ Sequel Officially Confirmed, Coming To Next-Gen Hardware

Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider reboot was a fairly big success worldwide considering the series’ rough history, so it wouldn’t exactly be farfetched to assume that a sequel to the game is in the works. It especially wouldn’t be farfetched because there is a sequel in the works. Apart from being obvious, the news wasn’t very […]

‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ Is ‘Likely’ To Release In 2015

EA didn’t exactly try to keep it a secret that a new Star Wars: Battlefront game was in development, but the game’s reveal during the publisher’s E3 2013 press conference – as short as it may have been – still garnered a strong positive reaction from fans of the franchise. We still don’t know a […]

In ‘The Bureau: XCOM Declassified,’ You Only Live Once [Video]

Just like the classic XCOM games, death in The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is permanent.

One might say that in The Bureau: XCOM […]

Wii U Sales Continue To Fall, But Nintendo Still Posts Quarterly Profit

Nintendo published its first quarter financials report for fiscal year 2014 early Wednesday morning.

Xbox One Compatible With Current-Gen Headsets, Still Won’t Be Bundled With One

Microsoft confirmed last month what some had suspected: the Xbox One will not be bundled with a headset like its predecessor.

Xbox One: ‘Smart Match’ Matchmaking System Explained By Microsoft

‘The Witcher 3’ Developers Are Against Selling You Extra Content

The Witcher developer CD Projekt RED has traditionally offered extra content for entries in the series at no extra charge.

PlayStation 4 RAM Allocation Clarified By Sony

Last week, a report from Digital Foundry claimed that while the PlayStation 4 would come equipped with 8GB of DDR5 RAM, only a little over half of that would be available to use by developers.

‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ Won’t Feature Multiplayer Naval Battles

As you’ve likely noticed from the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag footage we’ve seen so far, naval battles play a major part in the game.

Xbox 360 To Allow Self-Publishing As Early As Next Month [Report]

Microsoft threw a bit of a curveball earlier this week when it announced that the Xbox One would allow for self-publishing, and that all units would be able to function as development kits – meaning that, in theory, anyone with enough drive, time, and money can put their game on the service. Now it seems […]

‘Fez II’ Canceled, Developer Phil Fish Confirms

When Polytron announced around the end of E3 that Fez II was in development, it took many by surprise. The game was to be the sequel to the critically acclaimed, oft-delayed indie title from the mind of developer Phil Fish – and it was a sequel that no one expected to hear of so soon. […]

‘Ultra Street Fighter IV’: Capcom Looking To Buff Unused Characters

Ultra Street Fighter IV won’t be just adding new characters and stages – Capcom promised during its reveal that each character in the current roster would be tuned, and now we have an idea of what sort of balancing the developer has in mind for the returning characters.
