‘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.

An astoundingly immersive car chase just turned me around on Sony’s Project Morpheus

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 →

Assassin's Creed Syndicate Gameplay Footage

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.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Preview

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

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 →

With E3 2015 in the rearview mirror, the fall video game release season can’t come soon enough. Of course, fall is still months away, so we have to find something to entertain ourselves in the meantime. Thankfully, on Tuesday, Sony unveiled its latest PlayStation Store PLAY summer lineup, featuring four games that will keep PS4 owners occupied for at least the next month. More →

Rocket League Review

Rocket League review: Controlled chaos

Rocket League review: Controlled chaos

By on July 12, 2015 at 9:45 AM.

I don’t often have the time to review smaller downloadable games on the site, but I had to make an exception for Rocket League. I first got my hands on Rocket League during a closed beta earlier this year. Within minutes, I was completely captivated.

For a week straight, I’d hop online after work every night with my friend and play a dozen or so matches against other players. It was the first time in a long time that I couldn’t help but play just one more round. And then one more. And then another. But even after spending an embarrassing number of hours on the beta, I still hadn’t gotten enough. More →

Each of these franchises has millions of fans all over the globe, but not a single one even cracks the top 25 on the list of highest grossing video games of all time. More →

Nintendo Death of the Wii U

Nintendo May Kill Off the Wii U Sooner Than Any of Us Expected

Nintendo May Kill Off the Wii U Sooner Than Any of Us Expected

From the moment Nintendo unveiled the Wii U at E3 2011, I knew that something had gone wrong.

After a generation of trying and failing to keep up with Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo struck gold with the Wii. It was different than anything we’d ever seen before, but somehow still more approachable than the PS3 and Xbox 360.

It sold as well as any console in history for half a decade, but when it was time for Nintendo to follow it up, we didn’t get the Wii 2. Instead, we got the Wii U — a half-baked upgrade with an undersized tablet for a controller. More →
