Monolith Soft Reveals Impressive New Wii U Game X

Fans of roaming massive open worlds all while battling giant beasts and seeing damage counter numbers pop on-screen will likely faint upon seeing the new title developer Monolith Soft has revealed. Best known for Xenosaga and Xenoblade, Monolith Soft is going all in with the Wii U as per their reveal of X.  The title may be simple but the actual game is far from that based upon the reveal trailer shown at the latest Nintendo Direct conference.

THQ Finally Ceases To Be + IP News

At long last the era of THQ has come to a close. After being foretold in a sense nearly a year ago via Kevin Dent and made more apparent by the public financial issues that the company was running into, THQ is now a thing of the past.  The somewhat unfortunate demise of THQ isn’t a complete tearjerker moment however as several properties and studios made famous by the company will thankfully live on with new homes. 

The Unique Action Of Divekick Arrives On PS3, PS Vita, and PC This Summer

Presented as a meta joke about the state of fighting games, the indie based effort Divekick is now receiving a proper release bound for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PC.  After gaining steam last year due to a Kickstarter campaign, Divekick has been picked up by Chicago based studio Iron Galaxy Studios (Wreckateer, Darkstalkers: Resurrection) with a planned Summer 2013 release.

THQ and South Park Studios Dispute Over Fate Of South Park: Stick of Truth

Today is the day that we’ve all been waiting for in some ways as it’s auction day for THQ. After trying their best to change in the hopes of staying afloat, the foundations of THQ ultimately crumbled and the company’s assets are now being sold off to the highest bidder.

Killer Is Dead Debut Trailer Oozes With Style and Blood

These days it’s rare to see a trailer for a video game be released without half a dozen teases or as a mere twenty second teaser that shows next to nothing.  But here we are two days removed from when the

PlayStation All-Stars DLC Highlighted In New Videos

Despite meager initial sales Sony is still moving forward with sizeable post release content for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.  Originally revealed last December, PS All-Stars developer SuperBot Entertainment has been hard at work on bringing Kat (Gravity Rush) and Emmett (Starhawk) as the latest members of the character roster and now it won’t be long before we can finally get our hands on the newest combatants.

Killer Is Dead Receives New Details and First In-Game Screens

New details on the forthcoming hodgepodge of weirdness that Grasshopper Manufacture is developing have finally been released. While Killer Is Dead, the new GhM project, was formally announced last Spring, actual details on the game remained elusive other than a vague summary which revealed the game had sci-fi action origins to enhance the backdrop of a world filled with assassins and weird men that were the size of Godzilla.

Need For Speed Movie Gains Four New Actors + Basic Plot Summary Released

This may seem odd but we’re fast approaching a shocking occurrence: a film based upon a video game is actually going to enter production as scheduled.  As some of you may recall,  Electronic Arts successfully sold the film rights for Need For Speed to DreamWorks and now the film is actually set to enter production without any delays, last minute cancellations, or other such horror stories that have plagued projects in the past.

Disney Unveils The Imagination Driven Experience Of Disney Infinity

Today is one of the rare times I wish I could visit the offices of Activision brass as I’m sure the company is in a conniption fit over the reveal made by Disney today.  No, Disney didn’t go on yet another massive purchase spree along the lines of gobbling up Marvel and LucasFilm, but the house Mickey Mouse built did reveal a new game that essentially takes the Skylanders formula to the next level; hence Bobby Kotick is probably in full-on evil Sith Lord mode.

Injustice: Gods Among Us Receives Battle Edition (Big CE) and Release Date Revealed

At this point there may be so many games coming out in the first half of 2013 that it’s hard to keep track of which games should immediately join our collection and which should receive the Gamefly/Redbox treatment.  Choosing between a dozen games may be a tough thing to do for gamers with less than deep pockets, but fans of fighting games are likely going to go all in for Injustice: Gods Among Us and the rather massive special edition SKU that will be released alongside the game.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 Cast Is Revealed In This New Image

Director Kevin Tancharoen has taken to Twitter once again to reveal a new image from season 2 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Since filming began on the second season of Legacy Kevin has been rather forthcoming in giving us teases of what’s to come in the form of simple character or set snapshots. Now with the first footage of MK: Legacy Season 2 set to debut early next month, Kevin has shared an image showing the complete cast.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Receives Price Cut + Demo Planned

It may be the start of the new year but we’re fast approaching that period in which half a dozen hotly anticipated titles are set for release within weeks of each other. Obviously such a thing will put gamers in a difficult dilemma as they figure out which title should receive their hard earned money and which one will be put off until it eventually reaches the bargain bin.  Thankfully Sony is doing us all a solid by slashing the price of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the much awaited PS3 debut of the Sly Cooper franchise.

Microsoft Unveils Impressive New IllumiRoom Game Tech

As expected CES 2013 hasn’t exactly been a major event in respect to Earth shattering gaming announcements. A more reserved show compared to GDC and E3, CES has usually been the home to more minor announcements, if that, which in some instances serve as a small tease of things to come.

It almost seemed as if CES 2013 wouldn’t give us much in the way of noteworthy gaming reveals aside from the oddity that is the Nvidia Shield, but Microsoft have just revealed an interesting prototype they've created for the Xbox.

Marvel Heroes Unite In Lego Marvel Super Heroes

After being denied a game based upon The Avengers due to THQ’s poor business practices, we may finally have the long awaited Marvel action video game romp we’ve been yearning for.  Now we shouldn’t get too ahead of ourselves as we aren’t receiving a massive action game based directly on the Marvel cinematic universe via Activision or even Ubisoft. Instead, we're going to receive Lego Marvel Super Heroes thanks to WB Games and TT Games.

THQ Assets Officially Up For Auction This Month

After the news broke on Friday that some would-be objections could stall the sale/salvaging of THQ, the matters have been discussed by the involved parties with one major result: THQ is officially dead.  It may sound like I’m stating the obvious, but today it was officially revealed that THQ will be up for auction on January 22nd and that all its assets (studios, IPs,) will be available to purchase.

Nvidia Enters Handheld Arena With The Shield

The first true megaton of 2013 may have just occurred that either will end up being yet another turning point for the industry or will simply be the biggest blunder since the NGage.  To kick off CES 2013 with a true bang, Nvidia decided to do something I think none of us expected: a new handheld console from the firm was announced.

Crash Bandicoot Reboot Could Be In The Works

A once legendary video game character could be poised for a major revival if a leaked image is to be believed. Regarded back in the day as the next big thing,  the era of Crash Bandicoot came to a close once Naughty Dog, the original creators of Crash, decided to move on to bigger and better things. Crash didn’t immediately die once Naughty Dog left, but he didn’t exactly receive the attention required to keep him relevant, a thing which led to the franchise to die a few years ago.

The Woes Of THQ Continue

Perhaps this could be construed as a joke concerning that it’s the start of a new year yet more problems are arising, but once again there’s drama in the world of THQ.  After a string of failed projects, bad business decisions, and similar things of that ilk, THQ opted to go the easy route in a sense by allowing an investment group (Clearlake) to effectively buy the company and continue business as usual, at least that was the plan devised by THQ company brass.

James Bond May No Longer Be With Activision

The most dangerous foe of James Bond may have at long last been defeated in a somewhat unexpected way.  I’m not referring to longstanding 007 villains such as Blofeld or even new entities like Silva as I’m instead referring to Activision - the company which for the last six years has wasted the James Bond franchise.

Star Trek: The Video Game Gets Release Date (No, There Aren't Any Khan/Gary Mitchell Teases)

Last week sci-fi fans were chattering about one thing they were waiting months for: the first trailer for Star Trek: Into Darkness, the follow-up to the franchise reboot helmed by J.J Abrams.  Say what you will about the finer points of the massive restart button that was pressed on the Trek franchise, but as an action pop-corn flick it gave us the goods thus a sequel was prepped.
