A tweet has surfaced saying that Hitman: Absolution will be the newest edition to the Xbox 360 ‘Games With Gold’ program and will join the roster on April 1st and will remain free until April 15th.

Titanfall Figurines Will Be Online Soon From Threezero Toys

The Titans of Titanfall have sort of become the mascots of the next-generation for me. Nothing has so made me feel like I’m in the next generation like ripping some poor bastard out of his Titan mid battle with my giant steel hand of doom and destruction. They also have the side effect of making me really, really want some Titan action figures because I am a child. Fortunately, Threezero Toys is going to fulfill my dreams; they now have [...]

Alien: Isolation Gets Release Date

The very first video game I ever played was Alien Trilogy way back on the PS1. I was four. It scarred me for life and made me an all-time Alien fan. Which means I am more frustrated than a lot of people about the lack of a truly great Alien game, and why I am so fucking psyched we might be getting one this fall with Alien: Isolation, which we now know is coming out on October 7th of this year.

Roll7, Makers Of OlliOlli, Announces Not A Hero

Let me get straight to the point, OlliOlli is the best game on the PlayStation Vita — yeah, I said it. So imagine the shit-eating grin that was on my face when I found out Roll7′s next game was being announced, however, instead of another foray into an extreme sport they’re working on a 2¼D cover-based shooter entitled, Not A Hero. In order not to mince words I’ll let Roll7 describe Not A Hero:   ”When an anthropomorphic rabbit/mayoral candidate from the future named BunnyLord [...]

Drakengard 3 ESRB Rating Hints At Blood, Language, and Sex

While I don’t follow too closely, the ESRB rating decisions sometimes hint at interesting aspects of the game. Usually they’re superficial details that push the game towards one rating or another. A title I’m keenly interested in however was recently rated M and the ESRB’s description for Drakengard 3 makes me think the game will be everything I expected it to be. Their description can be read below: This is a role-playing action game in which players assume the role [...]

EA Flash Sale Hits PSN With A Gang Of PS3 Games

EA and Sony have teamed up to bring you a slew of games on sale for the PlayStation 3. The sale starts today and will continue through Monday, March 31st at 12:00 p.m. Pacific. This is the part where I give you purchasing advice: Firstly, if you have not played Kingdoms of Amular: Reckoning (the title is admittedly dumb), you should, because it is the best action role-playing game you’re going to get for ten bucks. Secondly, do not by Battlefield 4. Chances are it [...]
