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

Faces of Skyrim presents some stunning portraiture from the most recent Elder Scrolls game (natch the only partially released online version). These are characters captured in all kinds of moments.

Gamescom Metal Gear Solid Preview Has Horse Poops, Bikini Boxes

Aug
13

15 minutes of Metal Gear Solid V gameplay was demoed during a Gamescom livestream earlier today. It's the same mission we saw at E3, but approached in an entirely different way. Considering Kojima himself was present, rest assured that it is entirely insane.

Aug
07

We’ve been preaching against pre-orders and the damage that they do to the gaming industry for awhile now. By offering exclusive pre-order bonuses for separate retailers they’ve created a system in which consumers cannot purchase the complete game. Unless we purchase the game half a dozen times we’ll always be missing out. Now, Eric Hirshberg, Activision Publishing President and CEO, is saying that Destiny having the highest pre-order numbers of any new IP in history isn’t that big a deal, and it feels something like a victory.

Here we go again. With the latest announcement of the Halo Master Chief Collection coming to the Xbox One, rumors have started anew that we may be seeing this collection make its way to the PC.

New Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Trailer Is All about That Story

Jul
29

A new trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has dropped, and it's intent on reminding you that this game does in fact have a story. It's about how Kevin Spacey uses his wealth and power to organize elaborate games of laser tag. Or something. There were a lot of shooting and explosions and I got distracted.
