After years of conflict, robots are bringing the TF2 mercs together. A new comic series explains that Blutarch and Redmond Mann’s brother Grey has come from the shadows to take over Mann Co, and Saxton Hale has hired the TF2 mercs to save the day from Grey’s robotic henchmen. The game mode seems to be a six player hoard mode. So far, a list of robot types has been released, [...]
After 38 Studios, creator of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, crashed and burnt into a crisp, Epic Games did the right thing and hired most of 38′s subsidiary Big Huge Games. Today Big Huge announced they got a name change to Impossible Studios, and are working on a new Infinity Blade game, Infinity Blade: Dungeons, for iOS. No other information on the game has been released.
I love Halo. I really, really do. So as you can imagine, when Bungie took off and left their FPS opus behind, I was a little concerned as to how the series would endure in their absence; especially with a largely unproven codehouse in 343 Industries at the helm.

In a Capcom level blunder, most, if not all of Playstation All Stars’ roster may have gotten leaked through a special beta given out over Twitter and to fighting game specialists.

Last night, @RockBand tweeted asking if anyone was up to doing some math to figure out how much all of the hardware, DLC, and games would cost. I have no idea why, but [...]
During my stay at the first day of RTX 2012, I had the lovely opportunity to check out Halo 4. Sadly I could only have one go at it since the line was so absurdly long but fortunately my game lasted a good 10 minutes. In the game I played I was in a new playmode called Regicide where players in the map must kill the king, which gives you [...]
The news of Playstation All-Star’s release date, and its DLC costume plans was later followed by the announcement of two new characters. Playstation All-Stars, which drops October 23rd, will now include Toro the Sony Cat, and Heihachi from Tekken. A new stage, Chop Chop Master Onion’s Dojo, was shown. The “middle of the match twist” of the stage involves a giant mech MAWLR from Killzone 3, attacking the Dojo. Chop Chop Master [...]
