  • Blog Post: Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows Talks Band's Involvement With Guitar Hero Live

    Ever since "The Beast and the Harlot" challenged players in Guitar Hero II, fans of Avenged Sevenfold have requested more of the band to appear in the series. While Activision and Harmonix have given the Guitar Hero and Rock Band communities several tracks from Avenged Sevenfold's catalog... More
  • Blog Post: How Avalanche Snuck A Lightsaber Into The First Disney Infinity

    When Disney bought Star Wars in late 2012, Avalanche had already been hard at work on the original Disney Infinity for some time, prepping it for its August 2013 release. It was too late to add a robust Star Wars playset or figures to the game at a worthwhile capacity, but Avalanche felt it couldn’t... More
  • Blog Post: Five Shooters That Don't Rely On Bullets

    Splatoon launches this week, and it's a colorful take on a familiar genre. In the game, players paint the floor to gain points and attack other players in a shooter setting. It's a strange premise, but it's not the first in the genre to shy away from typical ammunition. Here are five games... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion – Now Is The Best Time To Get (Back) Into Destiny

    Since its launch in September of last year, Destiny has become one of the most polarizing experiences in gaming. Whether it’s due to the fact that the people who do love it do so passionately or unapologetically, or simply the fact that it wasn’t the type of shooter they thought it would... More
  • Blog Post: Fighting The Clone Wars: Ninja Theory's Take On Star Wars

    Combat in Disney Infinity and its follow-up, 2.0, was simple by design. The game is, after all, geared towards younger players and their families. Avalanche didn’t want to use that as a crutch for boring combat, however, so it sought out Ninja Theory, a studio with a history of combat-heavy action... More
  • Blog Post: Disney Infinity 3.0 Meets Mario Kart In The Speedway Toy Box

    The Toy Box game sets represent genre-specific alternate experiences for Disney Infinity. Past Toy Box games were built entirely using the in-game creation tools and included Thor’s Assault on Asgard and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Escape from the Kyln, which were tower-defense and dungeon...

  • Blog Post: See A Dismantled Chewbacca And More In Our Disney Infinity 3.0 Photo Gallery

    When we post image galleries from the games we feature on our covers, it’s always screenshots. Disney Infinity 3.0 offered us the rare opportunity to take photos of physical objects. Below, and in the gallery you will find photos of nearly all of Disney Infinity 3.0 confirmed figures. There are... More

    It's Xursday once again and it's time to check out the awesome stuff we'll be able to pick up in Destiny this week! You can find Xur next to the Crucible Quartermaster (down the central staircase on the way to the Vanguard war table). Here's everything he's got with him this weekend... More
  • Blog Post: Don't Buy Battlefield Hardline For The Single-Player Campaign

    The Battlefield Hardline review embargo lifted tonight, but we won't be posting our review until we've spent extensive time with the multiplayer on live servers. I have, however, already completed the single-player campaign and can confidently say that you won't be missing much if you skip... More
  • Blog Post: GTA Online Heists Impressions – The Waiting Game

    After more than a year of impatient foot stomping by the GTA faithful, Rockstar finally delivered on the promise of bringing multiplayer heists to Grand Theft Auto Online free of charge. These five missions are the most complex and interesting of the activities available to players, but at this juncture... More
  • Blog Post: Review In Progress – Resident Evil Revelations 2

    Capcom's approach to the release of Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a new one for the series, as it takes an episodic form with new installments weekly. Since the wait between episodes is short, much like a TV show, we decided to provide weekly impressions, leading up to one official review and score... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – The Four-Player Mayhem Of Helldivers

    Arrowhead Game Studios' new twin-stick shooter tasks four-player squads of helldivers with saving the galaxy from alien threats, one planet at a time. In this episode of Test Chamber, Matt Miller, Bryan Vore, Ben Reeves, and I jump into the fray and do our best to survive on a world teeming with... More
  • Blog Post: Comparing Dragon Ball Xenoverse On PlayStation 3 And PlayStation 4

    After recording a Test Chamber this morning showcasing the PlayStation 4 version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse , we decided to play and capture a little bit of the PlayStation 3 version to see how the two compare. Below you will find a video stitched together by editor Wade Wojcik that compares the two versions... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Dragon Ball Xenoverse

    Dragon Ball Z's first foray into the world of new-generation consoles launches today, and we took at look that game's opening moments and character customization options. Join myself (an admitted Dragon Ball Z fan) and Andrew Reiner (a very, very casual Dragon Ball Z fan) as we make our own character... More
  • Blog Post: Five Mortal Kombat X Dream Guest Characters Our Readers Forgot To Suggest

    Yesterday, I posted a feature detailing more than 40 fictional and non-fictional guest characters that could appear in Mortal Kombat X as suggested by our readers. It was a big expansive list, but there were a few obvious ones I felt our readers neglected to mention. All of these fighter suggestions... More
  • Blog Post: Readers Tell Us Their Top 25 Dream Mortal Kombat X Guest Characters

    Though it didn't make any promises about who would be appearing, NetherRealm did recently confirm that guest characters will be appearing in Mortal Kombat X. We asked our readers who they would like to see appear in Mortal Kombat X, and though the responses were incredibly varied, there were quite... More
  • Blog Post: Kyle Hilliard's Top Five Games Of Last Generation

    I’m sure many of our lists will feature broad open worlds and RPGs full of choices and alternate player-driven directions, but I have always been a fan of the more curated experience – the one that has been designed with a specific goal in mind that the player must accomplish. I love exploring... More
  • Blog Post: Looking Back At The Conversations Of 2014

    On January 1 this year, I spent some time putting together what I thought would be the biggest issues of this gaming year . Now that we are nearing the end of the fall rush, it’s time to look back and re-evaluate where we are. Early Access Continues To Evolve As Kickstarter begins to plateau and... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion – Dragon Age: Inquisition Has The Best Cast In The Series To Date

    Dragon Age: Inquisition has my favorite cast by far. In the past two entries, I've only enjoyed a few select members from each game (cough, cough Morrigan and Varric), but I've never found an ensemble as powerful as Dragon Age: Inquisition, where even if I didn't like certain cast members...

  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 – Earth Defense Force 2025

    I’ve never played an Earth Defense Force game, but I’ve heard players sing their praises well before I met some of their fans here at Game Informer ( check out Joe Juba’s review here ). In many ways, it’s the Dynasty Warriors of third-person shooters. Lots of enemies on screen... More
