Man At Arms' Tony Swatton has forged all sorts of nerdy swords. It was only a matter of time before he turned to Final Fantasy—specifically, Cloud's iconic sword. And boy howdy, is the Buster sword huge and unwieldy.
At the beginning of the month, Katie Couric got some heat from gamers over her one-sided, fear-mongering episode about violent game addiction. On Friday, Couric gave voice to those dissenters and issued a 'Mea Culpa' follow-up on her show.
Seven months after the publication of an article about the troubled development cycle of his studio’s last video game, Denis Dyack is finally sharing his views on the article. Naturally, we have some thoughts about his reply.
Good news: the next Penny Arcade RPG will be out on June 7. Even better news: the most recent one is free today. Go check it out!
I've never met a person who likes Mario Party, the digital board game featuring iconic Nintendo characters. I mean, I know people who do like the games exist; we're up to, what, Mario Party 9 now? Someone is buying these things.
It's not all science experiments and Aerosmith songs on the International Space Station; sometimes you've got downtime, and sometimes you fill that downtime by playing games. But what kinds of games do astronauts play?

This is it. Tomorrow, during an event that will likely set a new benchmark for dubstep and flashing green lights, we'll finally get to see Microsoft's next gaming console.
Sam Fisher, meet Isaac Briggs. He's the co-op partner on loan from the CIA in Splinter Cell: Blacklist and judging by this trailer, he seems to play well with others. Well, others on his own team.
Grim Dawn may still be a good few months away (currently perhaps at the end of August), but I’ve had my hands on some early alpha code to get an impression of this furrow-browed, grimly serious action RPG from the former Titan Quest developers. You can see my thoughts below.
Earlier this year I posted a list of five snacks I must eat in 2013, and on that list was a product from Frito-Lay that promised to shake up the status quo, challenge conventional snacking and fly in the face of more than 100 years of molasses-coated history. Cracker Jack'D, subtitled "Snacks with Impact" seemed like a bold move for such a famous brand. I was ridiculously excited. It's just trail mix.
If you stop and think about it, Booker DeWitt's life is kind of a mess. And you know what works great for reality TV? People with messy lives. This reality TV take on BioShock Infinite by timtimfed, then, is kind of perfect.
Grid 2‘s Eliminator game mode, where the dude at the back of the pack is knocked out every twenty seconds, sure looks exciting. Sure, there’s no jusy-rigged rocket launcher, and no desert apocalypse with attendant moral dilemmas, but speeding metal carts around concrete gullies will have to do. Codies have showed off this Eliminator thing on the Dubai track, which you can see below, and it looks really quite fancy. But trailers can soon be dispensed with: the game is almost upon us 28th/30th, depending on your ocean, and I’ll be keen to play it, because I haven’t enjoyed a racing game in quite some time. Big drift!
If they can live with themselves, NFL fans will be able to do some truly sick and depraved things this year with the new Madden video game. Like charge fans $30 for a beer. Like buy out the Green Bay Packers. Like drive that franchise down to Mexico in the middle of the night, and abandon it there.
The world's first reveal of the PlayStation 4 hit earlier today. Yes, it was blurry. And frantic. But those 39 seconds held some images of actual details from the upcoming console. We just don’t know what they are yet. So let’s take some guesses. Please tell us what you think each part does, won't you?
It's just another Moneysaver Monday.
John and Dave, aka Team Moon Rising, send word of their game which is called uh Moon Rising. But what is it? Well it’s a turn-based strategy game set on the moon, and we first mentioned it about a year ago. It’s got a new beta out, which you can get hold of over here. And does it have…? Of course: “Yes, there is a full, single-player campaign. But not only that, there is also a Skirmish mode where you can play games against human or AI opponents on a multi-player map of your choosing.” So… You should watch the trailer below, yes.
