Metal Gear Solid Becomes Even More Strategy Focused In Risk: Metal Gear Solid (This Isn't A Joke)

I had to do a double take on this news as I thought it was merely a prank of sorts to capitalize on the sometimes over-eager video game press and fans but Konami is co-developing a Metal Gear Solid version of the popular board game Risk.  Now you must be saying that the stealth action of MGS would be perfect for the tactical heavy nature of Risk as the two unlikely combinations would be perfect for a video game. The thing is that the Risk adaptation of MGS is going to be an actual board game and not a video game.

NECA Reveals Their First Series Of Products Based On Valve's Video Games

Valve is a company that has an extensive roster of franchises with enough unique characters that people desperately want whatever type of merchandise they can featuring those characters.  Unlike other video game companies, Valve hasn’t opted to delve into the video game merchandise front in a huge way as they’ve only featured small things in the past like limited edition statues or highly cute plush Companion Cubes.

Two More Villains Are Revealed For Batman: Arkham City [Video]

Since this weekend is the most wonderful time of year to be an overall nerd, WB Games has started to reveal some new tidbits about Batman: Arkham City.  Exactly how much WB Games and Rocksteady will reveal is still to be seen but at least we have one character reveal and one character premier trailer to keep us happy.

Two More Characters Are Revealed For Street Fighter X Tekken

The hype around Street Fighter X Tekken has been incredibly high and justifiably so since we’re getting a dream match-up that is hardly seen in gaming.  For year’s gamers had wondered what it would be like to see the characters of Street Fighter and Tekken square off against one another and now we’re finally getting such a thing in Street Fighter X Tekken and it looks amazing.

First Crop Of Voice Actors For Saints Row: The Third Are Revealed

The reveal of the Hollywood talent behind Activision’s upcoming crop of Marvel video games may have been slightly uneventful, but I doubt that’ll be the case with the news concerning Saints Row: The Third.  The Saints Row franchise has never really been focused on obtaining high-profile voice talent as it instead sought out established character actors like Michael Rappaport, Keith David and Neil Patrick Harris.

Images Surface For GoldenEye: Reloaded, The HD Port Of A Remake

With the San Diego Comic kicking off later this week we have an early reveal of sorts as Activision has let the cat out of the bag: GoldenEye is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360. As a series of domain registrations hinted at, Activision will be releasing a HD port of GoldenEye dubbed GoldenEye: Reloaded for the Xbox 360 and the PS3, with the latter receiving PlayStation Move support.

The PlayStation Goodness Will Be Plentiful At The San Diego Comic Con

Back in the day the San Diego Comic Con used to be an event that primarily focused on comic books with the occasional appearance by a high-profile movie, which in some cases was based on a comic book. But these days the San Diego Comic Con has grown to become a huge pop culture/geek heaven mega-event that includes panels for a ton of TV shows, genre films and of course video games.

One Final Tease For Mortal Kombat: Legacy And A Mortal Kombat DLC Teaser

Those that are lucky enough to attend the San Diego Comic Con this week will have the opportunity to do something incredibly cool: they can see the last episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy.  After waiting almost two months for the episode to air, Warner Premier will be airing the ninth and final episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy at a special MK panel being held this Thursday.  Focusing on the story of Lin Kuei ninjas Cyrax and Sektor, the episode will delve into how two men became soulless killing machine cyborgs.

James Bond's Latest Mission Is Almost Ready To Be Revealed

The latest adventure of James Bond will be shown to us very soon, as in it’s going to go public in two weeks. After skipping E3 (I can attest to this since Activision wasn’t showing it behind closed doors), James Bond will be making a splash at the San Diego Comic Con just like he did last year when James Bond: Blood Stone was shown.
