  1. Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Shows Us True Horror—and It’s 20 Years Old

    This Claire sandwich needs more kick.

    Revelations is supposed to bridge the two phases in Resident Evil’s history: the “classic” survival-horror style, with long mansion hallways and tricky puzzles, and the newer breed, where zombies move fast and bioengineered monsters grow gigantic pus sacs from every orifice. But all Resident Evil: Revelations 2 does is make me wish we could turn back the clock 20 years—that the good old days are still possible to relive. They’re not.

    Somewhere, beyond the sea...

    The first DLC for Bioshock Infinite is now available! Clash in the Clouds isn't a continuation of the story as much as a glorified battle arena, but that's fine.

  11. Walking Dead: 400 Days Launch Trailer Brings the Zombies [Video]

    Five new stories for five bucks? That works for us.

    Let's face it -- we don't generally expect video game adaptations to live up to the works that inspired them. It's just not the way the world works, generally. So it was a happy surprise last year when Telltale Games released a take on the Walking Dead series that stands right up alongside the comics and AMC series that inspired it. Since then, players have been waiting with bated breath for the promised second season of the episodic title. To tide us over until then, Telltale and Skybound Entertainment have released new DLC that will bridge the gap between Seasons 1 and 2: 400 Days. And since you're getting new DLC, you're getting a trailer for it, because what's new content without a preview?

  12. Microsoft Completely Backpedals on Xbox One Used Game and Internet Connection Policies

    They should call the console the Xbox 180, since that's totally what they just pulled. Zing!

    It’s really easy to hate on Microsoft right now, and for good reason -- the more we heard about their draconian rules for the Xbox One, the more we never wanted to pick up an Xbox controller ever again. Apparently, however, Microsoft's grokked just how angry even the most lenient of gamers are right now, because they've announced a complete reversal of practically every single policy that's gotten heat from critics. Wait, really? Just like that? Well, now things are about to get interesting.

  13. Harmonix Announces Fantasia: Music Evolved, Makes Us Wish We Were Actual Sorcerers

    Is there at least a secret level where we get to play as dancing ballerina hippos?

    You know how critics of music-centric video games like Guitar HeroRock Band, and Just Dance used to argue that such games gave you a false feeling of accomplishment because you were basically putting time and energy into simulating a skill (guitar playing, dancing, etc) that you weren't actually learning? Prepare to not be worried about that with the upcoming Fantasia: Music Evolved, because if this trailer is any indication of the actual gameplay, all you're going to be putting time and energy into is waving your arms around like Mickey Mouse does in The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Which, granted, sounds pretty awesome. Who hasn't wished they could control the elements with a sweep of their hand? And by elements, I mean "dubstep beats."

  14. Xbox One Not Backward Compatible With Xbox 360, Registers Games to Specific Accounts

    The Xbox One won't play Xbox 360 games, and their used game policy is, well, complicated.

    After the reveal of the Xbox One, there were still a lot of questions floating around about exactly how Microsoft would be handling used games and whether it'd play Xbox 360 titles. Those questions were answered, in conflicting ways, and they're "it's complicated" and "no, no it will not." Bummer.

    It's finally time, folks. Microsoft has decided that they're going to pull back the curtain and let us in on "a new generation of games, TV and entertainment."

Regardless, we'll all find out for certain soon enough -- Microsoft's hosting an Xbox reveal event on May 21st.

  16. Trailer for Suda 51′s Killer is Dead Makes Absolutely No Sense, Perfect the Way It Is

    He may not be recognized in the same vein as more famous video game visionaries such as Shigeru Miyamoto or Hideo Kojima by the mainstream media, but when news hits that Suda 51 is working on a new game, you can more than bet that the gaming community will drop what they're doing and clamor to learn more about what exactly is up the cult designer's bizarre sleeve. Following in the noble tradition of Killer 7 and No More Heroes, Suda 51's latest video game phantasmagoria of crazy characters, intense action, and blood spray galore is Killer is Dead: An unhinged story set in the near-future where cybernetic implants are the norm and assassin work is quite the lucrative business. Mortal words don't do this game justice, so it's in your best interest to check out the debut trailer for yourself.

  17. Microsoft Posts E3 Countdown Clock, May or May Not Have to Do With New Xbox

    It seems like only yesterday when Microsoft's Xbox 360 was hailed as the pinnacle of video game hardware and left us all waiting in long lines in front of the local Best Buy to bring home the future of gaming entertainment. Sadly, now in 2012, the old girl is starting to show some cracks and is known to make a make a mess in the house from time to time, which is all indicative of a brand new game system on the horizon. It's a forgone conclusion that Microsoft is already hard at work cobbling together the successor to the Xbox 360, but the question really boils down to when this new system will be unveiled. According to an Electronic Entertainment Expo countdown clock that was posted on the blog of Microsoft's Major Nelson yesterday, we may at last get our first glimpse of the next addition in the Xbox family later this year. With that, let the speculation commence!

  18. Drop the F-Bomb: Dead Space 3 for Kinect Will Have Profanity-Triggered Commands

    You know those times when you're playing a video game and Murphy's law comes into effect, resulting in incessant cursing at the screen in the vain hope your swearing will cause some kind of positive change? Of course you do, and so does Dead Space 3 producer Steve Papoutsis. In a recent interview, he's said that the development team at Visceral Games has worked to integrate the Kinect's voice capabilities into the game, allowing players to trigger special commands when they let the swears fly. The only catch, however, is that we won't know what words to use until the right situations present themselves.

  20. U.S. Court Overrules German Sales Ban of Xbox 360 and Windows 7

    Just when you start thinking the U.S. government doesn't have universal power of every other nation, they go and do something crazy. A federal judge has ruled that Motorola will not be allowed to ban the sale of Microsoft products, the Xbox 360 and anything with Windows 7, in Germany, despite the fact that a German court granted it back in May.
