Watch Game of Thrones’ Tywin Lannister talk about his role in The Witcher 3

It’s becoming a trend — our favorite actors are making the transition from movies to television, and from television to video games. Fresh off his role as Tywin Lannister on HBO’s endlessly popular Game of Thrones series, Charles Dance decided to take on a new (yet familiar) challenge by joining the cast of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as Emperor Emhyr var Emreis of Nilfgaard.

Microsoft Xbox One E3 2015 Plans

Microsoft has big plans for the Xbox One at E3 this year – here are the latest details

Microsoft has big plans for the Xbox One at E3 this year – here are the latest details

It’s been a relatively slow start for the Xbox One in 2015, with hardly any exclusives to speak of save for Screamride and Ori and the Blind Forest. That’s not to say that the PS4 has been outpacing Microsoft’s console by much, but if the Xbox One is going to stand a chance of taking the lead this year, it’s going to need to have a big E3.

According to Phil Spencer, that’s exactly what Microsoft has in store. More →

Grand Theft Auto 5 has been out on PC for a week now, and despite a few technical hiccups during the first few days, the critical and commercial reaction has been outstanding. Rockstar Games is getting an unprecedented amount of mileage out of GTA 5, but do you really need a second, or possibly third copy of the game?

Project Cars Release Date

The most gorgeous racing game we’ve ever seen is finally launching on May 7th

The most gorgeous racing game we’ve ever seen is finally launching on May 7th

By on April 17, 2015 at 12:45 PM.

Save for Forza Horizon 2, my personal game of the year in 2014, I have been sorely disappointed by the racing game lineup of the new generation. Need for Speed: Rivals felt like a step back after the incredible Most Wanted, Driveclub didn’t live up to the lofty expectations, and The Crew was all but broken at launch.

Maybe the endlessly delayed Project CARS, which has finally gone gold, will put the genre back on track.

Medical alert: Your thumb has not yet evolved to the point where it can make the same repetitive tapping gesture over and over and over again for several hours at a time. PIX11 brings us word that medical journal JAMA recently published a case study about a man who had to undergo surgery on his thumb because he’d spent too much time playing King’s hyper-addictive game Candy Crush Saga.

GTA 5 4K Resolution

You don’t want to know how much it costs to play GTA 5 in 4K on your PC

Surprising no one, Grand Theft Auto 5 has had a smashing debut on PC, quickly becoming the most played third-party game on Steam just days after its release. With its detailed customization options, exclusive video editor and additional radio station, gamers who already owned the game are finding plenty of reasons to jump back into Los Santos.

But we all know that the real reason to get GTA 5 on PC is to see Rockstar’s game in stunning 4K. Unfortunately, most of us are never going to have that chance. More →

Watch Quest Apple Watch Adventure Game

Watch Quest could be the first must-have Apple Watch game

Watch Quest could be the first must-have Apple Watch game

The Apple Watch, much like the iPad before it, has come under a great deal of scrutiny since its reveal. The number one question consumers have for Apple: Why should I buy a smartwatch? We asked the same question about the iPad, but as we quickly found out, there was no simple answer.

For some, the iPad is a simplified, portable tool for work. For others, the iPad is an overpriced gaming console (a group in which I place myself). I believe we’re going to discover something similar as the dust settles following the launch of the Apple Watch. More →

You need to watch Conan get destroyed in Mortal Kombat X

Even for people who are desensitized to video game violence, Mortal Kombat X can be pretty gruesome, particularly the closeup shots of assorted human organs being ripped out of characters’ bodies. Because of this, we were interested to see Conan O’Brien’s always-fresh take on the game when he played it this week alongside game creator Ed Boon as part of the Monday Melee gaming segment. More →
