The Walking Dead: Season Two comes to an end next week, and Telltale has released a pretty special trailer to commemorate things.

The final wing of Naxxramas, Hearthstone's first singleplayer "adventure," arrived last night. As before, the most challenging portion of the new wing, the Frostwyrm Lair, is Heroic mode, which pits you against beefed up versions of the final two bosses.

EA Won't Be Giving Out Early Review Copies of Sims 4

Aug
18

Looks like everyone's favorite punching bag is about to get hit a few more times. EA is reportedly not going to be releasing early review copies for The Sims 4. Some might see this as a tactical move on EA's part, perhaps as retalation against an industry that has come to love reporting on all the company's errors. Others will probably just say it's EA being evil and trying to hide how terrible they've made The Sims 4.

Aug
18

No matter how badly fans want it, SEGA seems very uninterested in pursuing a remake of the cult classic Dreamcast game Shenmue. It's not hard to figure out why. After all, the game cost a ridiculous amount of money (estimates vary between $47 and $70 million, in 1999), and although it's developed a healthy fanbase, no amount of Dreamcast game sales in the world were going to make it a financial success for SEGA.

These Are the Most Pirated Games in Each State

Aug
15

Whether piracy causes real economic damage is still up for debate. What isn't though is the fact that quite a few Americans pirate stuff. In the past 40 days, over a million people have torrented or pirated something: movies, TV shows, music, and even games. In an effort to understand how geographic areas affect downloading habits, a real estate blog tracked which games were the most in each state. Spoiler, it's probably Watch_Dogs; unless you live in Oklahome. Those guys really love Naruto.

Diablo III Player Becomes the First to Hit Level 1000

Aug
13

The Diablo series has always had a pretty daunting amount of content, but the Paragon system in Diablo III puts everything else to shame. After reaching the level cap of 60 (which already takes a really long time), players are rewarded with "Paragon levels." This "bonus" leveling system has no cap, effectively allowing you to grind forever, if you have the time and patience.
