Watch the Xbox Gamescom 2015 press conference live stream right here at 10AM ET

Despite the enormous size and scale of E3, video game companies simply can’t fit everything into a single show. That’s why it’s always worth paying attention when Cologne, Germany hosts Gamescom — Europe’s largest gaming trade fair.

It’s basically a second E3, and on Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET, Microsoft will kick off the show with a live streamed briefing showcasing games we saw earlier this summer and debuting new games for the very first time. More →

Despite the fact that we’ve seen a few big releases over the past couple of months, the summer video game lull is still in full effect. We still have over a month until September arrives and the schedule begins to pick up, but in the meantime, there are plenty of free games to download on the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.

Last month, Microsoft improved its Games with Gold program dramatically by giving Xbox One owners an additional free game to download every month. Xbox has always been a step behind PlayStation when it comes to rewarding subscribers of its pay-to-play online service, but this addition brings Games with Gold and PS Plus much closer to parity.

Android Wear Half Life

Here’s how to get Half-Life running on Android Wear

Here’s how to get Half-Life running on Android Wear

One of the chief criticisms levied at the Apple Watch in particular, and at smartwatches in general, is that there’s not really much you can do on such a small screen. So while we’re still waiting for developers to figure out how to squeeze a compelling gaming experience onto a small display, how about we sit back and watch Half-Life running on an LG G Watch.

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’ multiplayer beta coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in August

Considering the fact that we’ve had a new Call of Duty game to look forward to every year since 2003, it can be hard to muster up excitement for yet another entry. But having played nearly an hour of Black Ops 3 multiplayer at E3 2015 this year, I have to admit that I’m kind of excited. More →

These are the Xbox 360 games we’re most excited to replay on Xbox One

Of all the huge announcements at E3 this year, few received as much fanfare as the addition of backward compatibility on Xbox One. After years of hard work, Microsoft had finally cracked the code. Gamers will finally be able to bring their Xbox 360 libraries to the Xbox One, but there’s one important caveat: compatible games will come in waves. More →

What female video game characters look like with realistic proportions

Video games are well-known for depicting unrealistic versions of both male and female bodies. Often times, and perhaps more often with female characters, the body types used are so exaggerated that some become laughably unrealistic.

If Nintendo ever makes an Android smartphone, it should look like this

One of the most fascinating announcements that Nintendo has made in the past year is that it has plans to enter into the mobile gaming market. Within the next few months, we’ll be able to buy a first-party Nintendo game on our mobile devices for the very first time, but concept artist Pierre Cerveau decided to take the idea to its natural conclusion.

This is the Nintendo Smart Boy concept — an Android phone made by Nintendo.

Every time I get my eyes on the latest VR project, it further strengthens my resolve that virtual reality is more than another fad. When the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus launch next year, the landscape of gaming is going to begin to change, and it’s concepts like The London Heist that are going to lead the way. More →

Watch nearly an hour of new ‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’ gameplay footage

Earlier this week, I had a chance to play Assassin’s Creed Syndicate for the first time. It was one of countless games I missed at E3 this year, but after spending about 20 some odd minutes with it earlier this week, I’m beginning to think it might be a step in the right direction following the catastrophe that was Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Here’s what you need to know about ‘Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection’

By on July 16, 2015 at 9:30 PM.

The release of a remastered Uncharted collection for the PlayStation 4 was basically inevitable. It’s one of the tentpole franchises of the PlayStation brand, and all three titles received rave reviews at launch.

What I’m saying is that Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection was a no-brainer, but thankfully, the teams at Naughty Dog and Bluepoint Games appear to be handling the project with the care and attention it deserves. More →
