Infinite Warfare’s single-player campaign opens with a stroll across Europa. The sun glints off of the icy surface of Jupiter’s moon, the gas giant looming large in the sky. It’s a fascinating backdrop over which Call of Duty characters do very Call of Duty things.
Japan’s highest grossing film of 2015 is pretty silly. Yo-Kai Watch: The Movie, making its U.S. debut at a special Fathom Events theater showing this weekend, keeps the wacky humor of the television show rolling, even when the fate of the entire world is at stake.
I’d originally planned to run our World of Warcraft: Legion review today, but due to circumstances firmly under my control, it’s now going to run Monday morning. The fact that I’m still playing the game every night probably didn’t help.
There’s a fantastic episode of the original Star Trek series called “Arena,” where Captain Kirk is forced into one-on-one combat against the Gorn. No Man’s Sky feels like the best part of that story stretched out into an entire universe.
If you’ve been intrigued by the idea of messing about with a $9 PC but had no idea what you’d do with it, Next Thing Co.’s PocketCHIP turns its tiny computer into a portable gaming machine, music editor and learning tool. It’s just full of ideas.
The Ghostbusters Level Pack for LEGO Dimensions dropped this week, compressing the classic comedy down to about a half hour while still hitting all the beats.
The LEGO Dimensions Doctor Who level pack plays out like a television episode, and like any television episode it starts with opening credits—what might be the best Doctor Who opening credits sequence ever.
I can’t remember the last time I felt as excited about a new video game as I feel right now about Overwatch, Blizzard’s unprecedented stab at making a multiplayer shooter. I’ve been playing it for three days and see so much potential.
The fourth generation Apple TV went on sale Friday morning, finally giving Apple’s set-top box the ability to play video games. It’s no gaming revolution, but it’s off to a pretty good start.
Until last weekend, Helldivers was totally off my radar. Then my boss Stephen texted me on Sunday saying we should team up and play it. It was good, he said. It was like a tactical, sci-fi Diablo, he said. My interest was piqued.
I wasn't sure what to expect from Dying Light, a new open-world zombie game from a studio known for making the regrettable open-world zombie series Dead Island. Imagine my pleasant surprise, then, when I discovered some cool ideas during my first five hours with the game. Maybe you can teach an old zombie new tricks.
I'll admit, I went into Tales from the Borderlands with pretty low expectations. Don't get me wrong: I like a lot of things about the zany world in which Gearbox's Borderlands shooter series takes place, but it's good for... shooting. Tales is an all-story adventure game. Yikes, right?
While promoting The Imitation Game, MTV thought Benedict Cumberbatch should imitate other famous people. (GET IT?!) He gives it a pretty good shot, but none of them come close to his Jar Jar.
Yesterday, I finished Dragon Age: Inquisition. By "finished," I mean that I played the final story mission and watched the credits roll. Getting to that point took me 85 hours, but I still don't really feel done with the game.
Look at me, streaming Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition to a tiny black box from a game console in an entirely different room. Truly we live in magical times.
Here at last! The Moto X was one of our favorite phones from last year, and now the sequel is here. It's called... the Moto X. Guess the X+1 thing was just a codename. Labels aside, we've spent a good half day with the new Moto X, and so far it lives up to the lofty promise of its name.
"Don't be That VR Guy," I keep thinking. I've spent the last couple of weeks playing Elite: Dangerous, a PC space-sim that works with the newest Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. It's been pretty amazing, and I'm having a hard time not being That VR Guy.
If someone ever decided to make a Game of Thrones animation, they can save a lot of money by hiring this kid as the sole voice actor. This newest assortment of season 4 voices proves his impressions are still uncanny — close your eyes, and I bet you'll recognize almost all of them.
And I liked it.
Today Bethesda announced the first new title to come from their fairly new studio: Battlecry in development by...Battlecry. Battlecry is a free-to-play, third-person, 32-player team action combat game for PC. It plays and reads a lot like Team Fortress, but without the gunpowder.
