Nate Wells, Lead Artist for Last of Us, Leaves Naughty Dog for Giant Sparrow

Seems like there’s more job hopping around the video game industry these days than a something something frog analogy. That lackluster metaphor’s going to have to cut it for now, because Nate Wells, lead artist for The Last of Us, has left Naughty Dog and joined Giant Sparrow as an art director. This information comes via Nate Wells’s twitter profile, updated with his new title. Wells’s credentials include art for Bioshock, System Shock 2, and games of the Thief series. He’s also voice acted for a [...]

New Trailer for Batman: Assault on Arkham

Troy Baker, we’ll never be shot of him. Gruff gnarly voice man plays a starring role as legendary villain The Joker in upcoming Batman animated film Batman: Assault on Arkham. As the name would suggest, this cartoon will be linked to the recent Arkham branch of the universe. It hasn’t got the most original premise – The Joker has a bomb rigged to go off somewhere in Gotham, will Batman save the day? – but heck, it’s a superhero movie, get to the punching [...]

 

Want Your Own TF2 Syringe Gun?

Hey, you! Yeah, you! Are you a fan of Team Fortress 2? Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, I would just love to own a prop/replica TF2 weapon?!” Well, then, you’re in luck! The very talented William Jakespeare has decided to sell his insanely awesome syringe gun. TF2 fans will instantly recognize this as the default Medic weapon. I have to say, my only complaint is that his syringe gun doesn’t contain actual syringes, but short of me asking [...]

Trial of Trails, the Free RPG You Bikeride Through

Over the past decade or so, fitness has really picked up as a strong factor in video game development, revolutionizing the way we play some games today, such as Dance Dance Revolution, Wii Boxing, Kinect Sports, and many more. Maybe you’re just not into any of those though. Maybe you want something more fantastical. Maybe you want something like Trial of Trails, the RPG you play with a stationary bike. It’s as odd as it is intriguing. Trial of Trails [...]

Bethesda Fixes, Bans Users Of The Elder Scrolls Online Item Glitch

So, you might have seen the The Elder Scrolls Online show up in your news feed a lot yesterday. That’s because the game has one of those infamous game breaking bugs show up and start wreaking havoc. The glitch allowed players to infinitely duplicate items in the guild banks by simply clicking on them in the bank’s inventory. If left unchecked, this could have been disastrous for the in-game economy of The Elder Scrolls Online, but Bethesda, for once, has responded quickly to [...]

Thirty Minutes of Chroma Squad Gameplay For Your Eyeballs

Unless you’re able to be in more than one place at a time, chances are you missed some stuff at PAX East. Hell, I know I missed a ton of stuff, and one of them was regretfully the sentai inspired Chroma Squad, from Behold Studios. Luckily, Behold was nice enough to post the entire 30-minute demo on their YouTube channel. Chroma Squad is a homage to Japanese sentai television shows — e.g., Power Rangers. In the game players will be creating their own sentai television [...]

League of Legends Trials of the Poro: Mustached Champion Joining the Fields of Justice

Deep in the snowy, war-torn lands of Freljord, one poro embarks on an epic journey for freedom, bravery… and poro snax. What can I say, poros can’t get enough of the gooey treats, and sometimes their big appetites lead them into a little trouble. By trouble, I mean smack dab in the middle of a Freljord battlefield. Luckily, a new League of Legends champion, previewed in the video, is there to rescue our brave poro, and gift him with a [...]
