Injustice 2 reveals final gameplay trailer

I remember when MORTAL KOMBAT VS. DC UNIVERSE came out, I was super excited because it was two things I loved together: DC and MORTAL KOMBAT (I liked Marvel and STREET FIGHTER as well, just not as much). And while I liked that game overall, I'd never claim it was a classic or anything. So it was awesome when Netherrealms gave DC fighting games a second chance with INJUSTICE, fixing a lot...

C'mon Hollywood: Why haven't you made a Twisted Metal movie yet?

As a kid, I remember popping TWISTED METAL 2 into my PS1, entering the code to play as Minion , and then going out of my way to destroy Paris and any fool who got in my way . It was good times. Honestly, while I’m not much of a gamer in general, I loved TWISTED METAL. It was fast-paced, intuitive, and – above all – fun . Even more importantly, like MORTAL KOMBAT and...

Villains shine as Brainiac, Darkseid, and Joker show off in Injustice 2

I've been looking forward to the new INJUSTICE game for a while now. I love MORTAL KOMBAT (as the team behind it are behind the INJUSTICE series as well) and the first INJUSTICE was a hoot to play. I'm also digging the new story, especially the idea that Superman might be getting a redemptive arc (so the games don't stay grimdark the entire time). But speaking of...

Superhero RPG Marvel Heroes Omega releases console announcement trailer

Released in June 2013, MARVEL HEROES is a free-to-play action RPG where you can play as (an actually impressive) amount of Marvel heroes and beat the shit out of an equally impressive amount of Marvel villains. Up until recently, though it was only available to play on PC. However, it is now going to be available on consoles! Here's the announcement trailer: Wait...this is...

Ralph Breaks the Internet to be new title for Wreck-It Ralph sequel

I was blown away by the first WRECK-IT RALPH. When I heard that it was the " WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT for videogames ", I balked. Until I actually sat down to watch the thing. It certainly delivered on the hype, and then some - I was a bawling mess by the end of it. My only real complaint was that, being set in an arcade, it really limited the kinds of games Ralph...

New Halo Wars 2 featurette gets into the characters inside the game

While never really a gamer, I still have fond memories of HALO. I was in junior high at the time, and it was mind-boggling to be able to fight in an arena with friends and also hijack space ships . I mean, that's pretty standard now, but at the time it was revolutionary, especially the ability to do it during a multiplayer match. I constantly died, but for those brief few seconds I was...

A remaster of the Crash Bandicoot games is coming to PS4

Back when I had the patience to play videogames, I was a Playstation kid (and a Sega kid before that). So I was always defensive about Sonic and Crash Bandicoot whenever arguments about videogame mascots came up, even though Mario has indeed become the undisputed ubermensch at this point. So I have some nostalgia for good ol' Crash Bandicoot, and even have fond memories playing his...

Naomie Harris joins The Rock in videogame adaptation Rampage

I just talked about videogame movies yesterday , and now here we are, another one on the way. This one stars Dwayne " The Rock " Johnson as someone battling three giant monsters (a Godzilla-like lizard, a King Kong-like ape, and a...werewolf) from destroying cities. It's based off the arcade game RAMPAGE, although in that game you played the monsters and not some...

C'mon Hollywood: Why videogame movies suck and how to fix 'em

SUPER MARIO BROS. STREET FIGHTER. MORTAL KOMBAT ANNIHILATION. HOUSE OF THE DEAD. Not only are these terrible videogame movies, there are some of the worst movies, period . And the list goes on! DOUBLE DRAGON, DEAD OR ALIVE, ALONE IN DAR – I mean, you get the idea. Hell, let’s add ASSASSIN’S CREED and (presumably) RESIDENT EVIL: FINAL CHAPTER to that list as well. So...

Another videogame adaptation on the way, this time for The Division

Another day, another videogame adaptation. Don't get me wrong, I have faith we'll get a great videogame movie someday, and hell, I'd argue we already did with MORTAL KOMBAT and SILENT HILL. But with the proliferation of titles, it's still astonishing how many of them are not only bad, but f*cking terrible. This brings us to the latest one, Ubisoft's THE...
