While Lionsgate might be trying to figure out how to do more Hunger Games after the final chapter hits theaters in November later this year, it doesn’t mean they’re not looking for the next Hunger Games franchise to cash in on. Word is that Lionsgate is looking to take everyone to the Borderlands. That’s right, Lionsgate is taking the video game to movie plunge with game developer Gearbox‘s Borderlands video game franchise.

Assassins-Creed-Rogue-Xbox-360-PS3-665x385

Ubisoft‘s Assassin’s Creed movie is finally getting production rolling and thanks to Yahoo we’ve got a first look at Michael Fassbender in costume as Callum Lynch, descendant of a long line of members of a secret society of assassins. Don’t worry dedicated gamer, you’re memory isn’t failing you, Callum was not a character in any of the Assassin’s Creed games. The name was created for the movie, but I imagine it might find its way into the next video game. (more…)

I’m not one of those people that loses my mind over the desgin aethetic that Michael Bay brought to his series of four (so far) Transformers movies, but as someone that grew up playing with the original toys and watching the Generation One cartoon, it’s nice to see those characters look how they’re supposed to look again. To what do I refer? The upcoming game Transformers: Devastation, which features several playable characters who all look like how you remember them if you were born before the year 1990, meaning no Bay-formers here. But what does the game itself look like? Are you one of those weirdos that likes to know what your buying when it comes to your gaming entertainment? Well behold, it’s you first look at the gameplay for the new Transformers game. (more…)

Several rumors about Nintendo releasing their first mobile game have been circulating over the last two years ago. But, it was only recently that they broke their silence regarding their game app project with video game developer DeNA.

What should we expect from the first Nintendo-licensed mobile game? Should we expect the company’s famous titles to be ported to smartphones? (more…)

Just when you thought LEGO Dimensions couldn’t get any better, it just did. If you’re unfamiliar with LD, it is a new upcoming game peripheral in the same style of Disney Infinity and Skylanders, with a unique docking station and an assortment of figurines that allow you to play different worlds and areas of the game. Only LEGO Dimension is better because the base and figures are LEGO pieces that you build. Oh, and the not so little premise of featuring pop culture characters from various genres like Back to The Future, Batman, Lord of The Rings, and Doctor Who. You can also take any character into any world. Yes! In your face Disney Infinity!

Still not convinced? Well there’s another game expansion that should interest you. At least if bustin’ Ghosts makes you feel good, that is.  (more…)

There is no scenario where Star Wars fans need any more reasons to be excited to play the newest game, Star Wars Battlefront, upon its release onNovember 17. It’s a beautiful, exciting take on combat in the Star Wars universe. Have a pulse? Like things? This game is probably for you. However, EA hasn’t been simply sitting on its hands and waiting to cash in on the hype, as they’ve announced an exciting new mode at Gamescom that will put players in the cockpits of iconic Star Wars crafts, most significantly the mighty millennium falcon! We’ve got the details for you right here, loyal nerds.

Let’s start with this kickass trailer. Have a clean pair of pants handy. (more…)

fallout4

If you are familiar with the Fallout games then you already know the shear joy of wandering the wastelands and exploring. Spending endless hours tooling around the post-apocalypse gathering bobby pins and teddy bears and running across the odd TARDIS here and there or a nuked fridge complete with fedora wearing archaeologist (what’s left of him at least.)

When Bethesda rolled out the latest in the series, Fallout 4, at E3 this year we were treated to more than a few videos showing off what awaits in what is left of Boston. I am sure the game will have a story about saving something or someone and probably a whole wack of quests about just that, but don’t let those distract you from what you are really there to do. The true meaning of the game will be finding the burnt out husk of a bar with a skeleton in a postal uniform and a particular rotund feral goul and finding out if they do know your name.

Anyway, wanna see 5 minutes of Fallout 4 exploration footage? (more…)

We’re riding a high from a great Comic-Con, and we’re upset that we have to report such a sad occurrence, but that’s the name of the game. Though we’ve known the President of Nintendo had been suffering health problems, this comes as a bit of a surprise nonetheless. At 55, Satoru Iwata has passed away.
