Star Wars Battlefront Leaked Gameplay Footage

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Leaked Gameplay Footage: See the Game in Action

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Leaked Gameplay Footage: See the Game in Action

There were few third-party games as anticipated as Star Wars Battlefront at E3 2015. I wasn’t as pleased with the reboot as I’d expected to be, but I only had a chance to play a single match on a single map. Battlefront only really thrives once you get a hang of the character classes and learn the maps backwards and forwards.

Unfortunately, we aren’t going to have that opportunity for another few months, but there are gamers out there who are currently participating in the closed alpha, and one of them decided to share some footage from the game. More →

‘Nintendo Cross’ Is an Obvious Hoax, But Nintendo Should Steal These Ideas

‘Nintendo Cross’ Is an Obvious Hoax, But Nintendo Should Steal These Ideas

You have to hand it to the gaming community — when they want to prank one another, they really go all out. Late last year, one graphic designer spent hours photoshopping Rayman into the character select screen for the new Super Smash Bros. and now another prankster has put together a fake concept reveal video for the unannounced NX, or Nintendo Cross, console.

It might not have been the most surprising trailer at E3 2015, but the stage demo for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End certainly knew how to get our adrenaline pumping. There were firefights and daring escapes and car crashes, but the trailer was abruptly cut off just moments before Nathan Drake slammed into the side of a bridge.

After putting diehard fans into cardiac arrest during its E3 2015 press conference, Sony couldn’t possibly surprise anyone with its Instant Game Collection for July 2015. But even with expectations at an all time high, the company seems to have delivered a pretty solid offering, highlighted by a game that I haven’t stopped talking about since May.

Museum Sculpture

Hilarious Video: Crazy Museum Exhibit Pranks Frightened Visitors

Hilarious Video: Crazy Museum Exhibit Pranks Frightened Visitors

Erik Pirolt is an artist from Norway with a flair for the creative. A few years ago, he put together an art exhibit that consisted of what appeared to be a traditional sculpture of a human head, not too different from what you might find in any type of art museum.

But this sculpture was constructed just a bit differently. Despite an accompanying plaque which expressly warned visitors not to look into the sculpture’s eyes, the urge to stare proved too strong for most to avoid.

In the past, we’ve featured a few of the most astounding Unreal Engine 4 creations we could find here on BGR, but this frighteningly realistic recreation of Mario is my new personal favorite. Nintendo might not be willing to talk about its next-gen NX console quite yet, but if you want an early sneak peek at how incredible Mario could look, this is your chance.

Can Video Games Actually Help Overweight Gamers Lose Weight?

Can Video Games Actually Help Overweight Gamers Lose Weight?

Though often exaggerated in popular culture, the old stereotype about gamers  being overweight isn’t entirely without merit. A 2009 study, for instance, found that gamers do, in fact, tend to be on the heavier side of the scale relative to the population at large.

But might it be possible for video games to actually help gamers lose weight? Researchers at the University of Exeter believe so, as evidenced by a new study which shows that certain types of mental training can directly result in gamers consuming up to 220 fewer calories each day. Over time, that amounts to nearly two pounds of weight loss per month.

By all accounts, Batman: Arkham Knight is both the best game in the series and one of the crowning achievements of the new generation. Every mission feels fresh, every twist feels earned and the Batmobile feels kinda like the Batmobile — but the game is all but unplayable on PC. More →

Go Behind the Scenes of ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5′ in a Brand New Trailer

The gaming community is sick to death of the endless stream of sequels, reboots, remasters and revivals that publishers have been trotting out over the past two console generations, but there are certain franchises that we still aren’t ready to be put to bed. One of those franchises is Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, which is returning to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One this fall. More →
