    9

    On October 11, Marvel Comics is revealing the future of its popular "Now!" line of comic books at its New York Comic Con Panel, Amazing X-Men and the Marvel Universe. Two teaser images accompanied this announcement, offering the words "judgment" and "trial." A closer look at the images reveals two interesting things: The background contains what appears to be a giant number one. The words are also ablaze, perhaps referencing Phoenix-related stories.

  • The Pictures People Take In Grand Theft Auto V

    14 2

    Players can snap photos whenever like in Grand Theft Auto V. These shots include scenic vistas, the eccentric citizens of Los Santos, selfies, and expensive sports cars. Others are taking a more unconventional approach, and Rockstar's Social Club Snapmatic viewer makes them public for all to see. I've scanned through hundreds of these photos, and wanted to spotlight some of the better ones here – whether they are beautiful scenic shots, clever selfies, or funny moments. I urge all you all to visit the site yourselves, but be warned: People are posting M-rated pictures from an M-rated game. New photos are added almost every minute. More

  • The Holiday Spending Conundrum

    22

    After narrowing down the list of games I hope to purchase this holiday season, I’m debating becoming one of those gamers who only plays Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto. If I became this person, my bank account would thank me, and I wouldn’t be throttled by a migraine whenever I look at my backlog of games. I’m guessing my kill-to-death ratio would become more respectable too. More

    As of this writing, I plan on getting both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on their respective launch days. After taxes (and if my math is correct), I'm looking at spending over $960 just on the machines.

  • How My Gaming Habits Changed After The Birth Of My Daughter

    31 1


    Evalei triumphantly running away from us with a leaf

    When I found out my wife Kelly was with child, I jumped around with an exuberance I probably haven't shown since I opened up a Christmas present containing The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. I was ecstatic. All I could think about was being a father and the things I would want to share with my daughter or son. Kelly and I talked about having a child for years, but the true weight of that thought wasn't felt until days after she said, "I think I'm pregnant." At that time, we started talking about how our lives would change, what we would have to do financially, and even debated changing the layout of our house to accommodate a baby. More

    I now game about a third as much as I used to, and that's okay.

  • Joker's Daughter Makes New 52 Debut

    9

    Duela Dent has claimed to be the daughter of Joker, Catwoman, Penguin, Scarecrow, Two-Face, and Riddler. After joining the Teen Titans, she changed her name to Harlequin. Yes, she is one of the most confusing characters in all of comics. That's why most people refer to her as "Joker's Daughter." More

    This longtime DC comic character may be getting a new identity.

  • Mobile Pick: Tiny Thief

    6

    A couple of weeks ago I asked my Twitter followers if they had stumbled upon any fun adventure games for iPhone. Ever since I read our magazine feature on Double Fine's upcoming title, Broken Age, I've been looking forward to setting off on an adventure in the vein of LucasArts' classics. More

    This gorgeous stealth/puzzler is worth a look.

  • I’m Hooked On 3DS' StreetPass Again

    11

    I purchased my first 3DS (I now have two 3DS XLs) on launch day. In that first week, my coworkers and I played the living hell out of this handheld. We made sure we had them at work so we could connect via StreetPass to collect all of the puzzle pieces and finish off Find Mii’s dungeon. More

    The Game Informer staff is trading puzzle pieces again. We're also enjoying a new Mii-based game.

  • If You Enjoyed Sharknado...

    25

    I don't like giving myself titles, but it would be silly of me not to call myself an expert on stupid science fiction shark movies. I missed Sharknado last night (and likely won't watch it until it hits Blu-Ray), but I have seen a ridiculous number of films about mutated, killer sharks. More
