Grimlock in Fall of Cybertron

Posted on Apr 20, 2012 10:00:28 AM

The first footage of Grimlock from the Transformers: Fall for Cybertron is out, and it looks pretty great. He’s a pure melee character, he has a sword and shield, he can bite drones in half in his space T-Rex form (he can also bang a gong and get it on, I’m told).

Prototype 2: The Saddest Game In The Whole World

Posted on Apr 18, 2012 03:15:04 PM

Have you a heartstring? Then the sequel to open world anti-hero game Prototype would like a chance to pull at it. It has a sad Johnny Cash song, it has a dead wife and it’s not afraid to use them. Now Prototype 2?s at the grimdark/pretty song juxtaposition marketing lark, and in this humble typist’s opinion getting it all kinds of wrong. You’ll see. Oh, you’ll see.

Ghost Reckoning: Future Soldier Trailer Shoots Many Men

Posted on Apr 17, 2012 05:03:34 PM

When you think about it, Ghosts of the Tom Clancy variety actually have quite a lot in common with ghosts of the Casper, The Friendly persuasion. After all, I mean… you know… well, they both have “ghost” in their name. They both, uh, talk to people… Oh, and invisibility! That’s the ticket. The latest Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, however, absolutely ruins my clever analogy. And I could tell you what exactly you’ll see with death-defying feats of linguistic gymnastics, but instead, I’m opting to take full advantage of the under-appreciated art form that is comic book sound effects. So, in short, BOOM, THOCK, KABIFF, POW, ZOTT, SPLUSH, RATTA-TAT, WHAM, BAM, THANK YOU MA’AM. Dramatically dive behind the break and shout something about “tangos” to watch the full trailer.

You Can’t Help But Smile As Pinkie Pie Mercilessly Slaughters Her Enemies in Skyrim

Sometimes the Skyrim mods are so beautiful it’s almost painful. Take on My Little Pony mod, video copious amounts of slaughter, add a happy song and you’ve got a recipe for… cupcakes?

To recreate this wonderous thing on your PC, just grab the Pony Weapons and Armor mod at Skyrim Nexus, or grab the weapons and armor separately via the Steam Workshop.

Note to diary: I fell in love with Fez because its entire raison d’être is to make me feel exactly what games have been failing to these last few months. A sense of discovery, of impossible possibilities, of – I’m sorry, there’s just no other word for it – magic.

It’s (Bullet) Time For Another Max Payne 3 Trailer

Posted on Apr 13, 2012 06:15:51 PM

Oh to be a bullet. To exist in a momentary, frequently black-and-white world free of complications or petty concerns. Point A to point B. That’d be my entire lightning-quick existence, but I’d get to savor ever slow-mo second – probably while shouting “wheeeeeeeeeeeee!” Max Payne 3, at least, offers a glimpse into this hot leaden utopia, but at what cost? Pretty much none, as it turns out.
