Army of Two, what a decisive franchise. I got into the series with The 40th Day and found it to be one of the absolute best and most fun pure action shooters of the entire generation so far. Going back and playing the first game left me with a bad taste in my mouth wondering how the hell it ever even GOT a second release. That said, I was kind [...]
Metal Gear Solid artist Yoji Shinkwawa has said that fans should expect a ‘special surprise’ to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the IP. Indeed, it was Shinkawa-san’s sketchy, brushstroke artistic stylings that have been synonymous with the Metal Gear Solid franchise. As far as the surprise goes, I don’t imagine it will be a new game or an HD update of the original or anything like that; but I will [...]
It looks like that Bethesda have been busy at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, as the prolific publisher has just registered a trademark for the Fallout franchise to be used in “entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world,” according to the USPTO listing.

Ubisoft has today confirmed that the next entry in their Splinter Cell franchise, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, will endure a delay to August 20th, 2013; presumably to lavish a ton more polish (and hopefully a lot more stealth gameplay) onto the title. Coinciding with the delay, Ubisoft have also released a new trailer for the game which shows more of the stealthy good stuff than any piece of media released thus far for [...]
With the release of Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, Gearbox Software has decided to extend the celebratory ‘Gear-Up Event’ until the 17th. This event allows players in True-Vault Hunter Mode to hunt varkids in various areas that have a greater chance to morph into Vermivorous the Invincible, a legendary enemy who has a high chance to drop a pretty epic Norfleet weapon. To find out how long this event lasts down to the [...]
It was only a matter of time until somebody else saw how much paper Activision‘s insanely successful Skylanders IP was making. And so here we are, with Disney hoping to carve themselves a piece of that very lucrative pie with their own cross-medium, parental financial guilt-trip, titled Disney Infinity. We’ve got more, including an announcement trailer, after the break.
