  • ‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ Trailer (Video)

    ‘Shadow of the Tomb Raider’ Trailer (Video)

    Lara Croft will probably be raiding tombs and hopping chasms long after we have all shuffled off to our own tombs and/or chasms, and now she is returning once again for a new adventure. It’s called Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and a recently released trailer for the game seems to reflect an appropriate amount of […]

  • Alienware Hotel Room at Panama Hilton (Video)

    Alienware Hotel Room at Panama Hilton (Video)

    Like all modern media mavens, I’ve got a big stack (physically and digitally speaking) of movies, books, TV shows, albums, and whatnot I’d love to get to if I only had the time. Lately I’ve been fascinated by the idea of a “reading vacation,” where you go hole away in a hotel somewhere and crack […]

  • ‘Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls’ Coming to Apple Devices

    ‘Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls’ Coming to Apple Devices

    Mobile gaming is making its way to dreaded Castlevania and Count Dracula sometime in the near future. It’s called Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, an upcoming mobile game coming to iOS devices sometime soon. Right now, the game is going into “closed beta” testing in its native Japan, but hopefully a wider roll-out is supposed to be […]

  • ‘History of Game Controllers’ in 76 Seconds (Video)

    ‘History of Game Controllers’ in 76 Seconds (Video)

    Last week I watched a short film by French filmmaker Alain Resnais, which traced the making of a red plastic bowl all the way back to the origins of Earth minerals. I’m reminded of Le chant du Styrène because a recent video simply called History of Game Controllers takes a similar, if much less ambitious, backwards approach to […]

  • ‘Spyro: Reignited Trilogy’ Coming to Multiple Platforms (Trailer)

    ‘Spyro: Reignited Trilogy’ Coming to Multiple Platforms (Trailer)

    That lovable purple dragon we all know and love, Spyro, is coming back to PlayStation and Xbox consoles next month, in remastered and upgraded versions of his first three adventures – that would be Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon — in honor of the 20th anniversary of the franchise. And […]

  • ‘Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart’ Board Game Variant Out Now

    ‘Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart’ Board Game Variant Out Now

    If I were to try to think about two games that are pretty much the exact opposite of one another, Mario Kart and Monopoly may spring to mind. One is a high speed racing video game, the other is a notoriously slow real estate game designed during an era when the general public possessed the attention span necessary to […]

  • ‘Dragon Ball Legends’ Mobile Fighting Game (Video)

    ‘Dragon Ball Legends’ Mobile Fighting Game (Video)

    It seems like pretty much every day as I trawl the internet for cultural tidbits, there’s some development in the sprawling multimedia Dragon Ball franchise. I tend to ignore most of it, since I’m one of the only 30-year-olds alive who never watched Dragon Ball or Dragon Ball Z as a kid, but in the interest of inclusion I’m bringing you […]

  • Sega Mega Drive Classics: Over 50 Games in One (Video)

    Sega Mega Drive Classics: Over 50 Games in One (Video)

    The Sega Mega Drive, better known as the Sega Genesis in North America, had a pretty classic lineup of games over the course of its time at the top of the home video game console heap. Now, more than 50 of the console’s gems are coming in a single release, entitled Sega Mega Drive Classics.  Sega […]

  • Xbox Game Pass: More Than 100 Games Streaming from the Cloud

    Xbox Game Pass: More Than 100 Games Streaming from the Cloud

    Microsoft evidently forewent a big publicity push for this service, but since it’s essentially Netflix for video games such a push probably wasn’t necessary. It’s Xbox Game Pass, and it’s now providing Xbox One users with cloud access to over a hundred games at ten bucks a month. For now, the Xbox Game Pass is just […]
