Welcome to the weekend of 2016 where possibly the two biggest games of year release. Civilization VI and Battlefield 1 are clocking in respectable ratings in review aggregate sites (Dtoid review here). For a limited time, PC gamers can take 20% off either title on both Steam and Origin. Show More Summary
Video games have come a long way. Technology these days is trying to push the limits of 4K resolution, and VR is a promising experience of the future. We find ourselves in a bit of a rat race to see what's the fanciest tech we can possibly...Show More Summary
Nintendo has finally revealed its next console, the Nintendo Switch. I, for one, am glad we can stop calling it the damn NX. In the days leading up to the reveal, almost everyone was skeptical that Nintendo would be showing off anything worth getting excited about. Read more...
One question I get pretty often whenever a new DLC for Souls launches is "how do you access it?"In true Souls form, you don't really go through a traditional menu. Instead, the player either has to follow vague clues or find the new zone completely on their own, which can get annoying if you're not keen on exploring the entire game again. Show More Summary
After "the longest negotiation in SAG-AFTRA history," voice actors affiliated with acting guild SAG-AFTRA began a strike affecting video game publishers and developers, starting today, October 21. Any game in production that has not hired voice actors before February 17, 2015, will be part of the strike. Show More Summary
Team Fortress 2 is celebrating its eighth (!) Halloween this year, and new events and items went live a few hours ago. Valve may be feeling a little pressure from Overwatch, because it looks like there's more new stuff available this time than in years past. Show More Summary
I don't know about you, but I'm still coming down from the high of the Nintendo Switch unveiling. Sure, we'd all be guessing and suggesting since halfway through the Wii U lifespan its next device would be a handheld/console hybrid, a premise buoyed by various Twitter tipsters who seemed convinced they knew what was going on. Show More Summary
When it comes to Destiny, I'm mostly stuck listening and nodding politely in response to words and phrases that, as a non-player, hold no meaning. But I can appreciate any video game that embraces the Halloween spirit, even something as maddeningly obtuse from the outside as Bungie's great friend-stealer. Show More Summary
Are there any other colors left for Nintendo to explore with its handheld gaming systems? This latest New 3DS XL bundle, an Amazon exclusive at least here in the States, is lime green. I feel like that's a love-it-or-hate-it color choice (it's a bit eye-melting, for my tastes), but I do like one detail, and that's the box art. Show More Summary
Sony can't seem to catch a break with its online network. According to a report at GameSpot, PlayStation Network (and most of ISP Dyn's network) has been suffering from outages today. While some minor issues were resolved in the morning, an even greater attack was launched in the afternoon. Show More Summary
When the opportunity came along to cover the official World of Warcraft cookbook, I jumped at it. While I don't share this fact much online, my wife and I have been cooking together on a weekly basis for over 10 years, and our German...Show More Summary
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has had quite the legacy. Even as someone who stopped playing years ago, its influence continues to be inescapable. The Macho Man and Thomas the Tank Engine mods of the world cannot be contained, and whether...Show More Summary
Just don't have it in me right now to be funny, or churn out a paragraph on what I'm playing, or even why I think the NS is cool. So let's play some games, and have a great weekend. Read more...
So you absolutely can't wait until Black Friday in a month because you're convinced Battlefield 1 is the bestest game ever (or everyone you know is playing and you can no longer follow the group chat). Have no fear, our peer-pressured...Show More Summary
The Nintendo Switch was all the rage yesterday, and with lots of western companies on board (including Bethesda), there was tons of talk about who would announce a project for it next. Blizzard added fuel to that fire with a tweet to Nintendo of America from their Hearthstone account noting that "We see you Mario," adding in the "#NX" hashtag. Show More Summary
I love it when things slide into place and then click to fasten. Holy cow, that click on the Nintendo Switch. It's so gratifying. I will probably slide the Switch's Joy-Cons in and out, in and out, savoring each delicious snap. And I'm...Show More Summary
Annual Battlefield games, much like Call of Duty, are no surprise. They give the Call of Duty series a run for its money in terms of DLC (they not only have a season pass, but a "club" system), and in any given year, they could produce a package that's a step down from the status quo. Hardline definitely had that feeling, but Battlefield 1 is a return to form. Read more...
So uh, two pieces of the God Hand have been confirmed for Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. For those of you who don't follow the series, the God Hand is the chief collective of antagonists, alongside of the "Apostles," which act as rogue agents of sorts. Show More Summary
What would happen if Mario and Pikachu did the fusion dance? No, this isn't some deviantart contest, but if it were Nintendo would claim all the entries considering it and the Pokémon Company have teamed up create an official monster...Show More Summary
'Member Pikachu! Oh yeah he's great. 'Member Pokemon cards?! That's basically what this trailer is in a nutshell, but for a non-official joint, it's incredibly well done. Most of us older folk specifically remember playing Red and Blue...Show More Summary
