Five Things To Know About Destiny’s Trials of Osiris

by Matt Miller

A recent visit to Bungie provided the opportunity to dig in and explore the House of Wolves expansion, including several hours of devoted time in new Crucible PvP. While I really enjoyed the four new maps that Bungie is adding this time around, I have to say that I was surprised how much I loved the new Trials of Osiris event.


 

Haute Future: How Fashion Designers Improved Deus Ex

by Jeff Cork

One of the many things that Eidos Montreal is hoping to convey with Adam Jensen is that he’s a cool guy. Sure, the Deus Ex hero is powerful, smart, and loaded up with an arsenal big enough to make Inspector Gadget envious, but he doesn’t just roll out of bed and head to work. He might not care to admit it, but you can tell he spends a bit of time in front of the mirror every day. His wardrobe is not only functional, but also stylish. The art team designed Jensen’s trademark coat for Human Revolution, but for Mankind Divided they turned to people who make clothes professionally. Here’s the story of their collaboration with Acronym as well as a look at the new coat’s hidden functionality.


Ranking The Entire Silent Hill Series

by Tim Turi

Fans of Konami's iconic horror series have experienced their share of disappointments, especially recently. P.T., a playable demo for a new installment called Silent Hills, released for free last year to rave reviews. The first-person horror experience oozes with atmosphere, manipulates players' expectations, and packs in some of the biggest scares the genre has ever seen. That sensational teaser, along with the promising collaboration between Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid) and director Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), had fans riding high for the potential of Silent Hills. That high was cut short this week when Konami announced the project's cancellation in the wake of Kojima's disbandment from the company.

Here's What You Missed In The Recent Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer

by Ben Reeves

A few days ago, Rocksteady and Warner Bros. released a new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight, which gave us a long and stoic look at Batman's compatriots: Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman. But if you look closely at the trailer, you might have also picked out a few more juicy details about one of this summer's hottest games.

Hands-On With Call Of Duty: Black Ops III's Enhanced Mobility And Specialists

by Brian Shea

With Black Ops III, Treyarch is changing a lot about the Call of Duty formula. On the campaign side of things, the developer is embracing four-player co-op, more open spaces, and near-future technology for its missions. The developer is also promising lots of customization options throughout. While I had the opportunity to see much of these new features in action during a studio visit to Treyarch last week, I also got my hands on the competitive multiplayer.

What Does a 19-Year-Old Alien Look Like?

Alien: Isolation brought the Alien franchise back into the gaming spotlight (for good reasons this time), but that's not what blogger Kyle Wadsworth wants to talk about. Instead, he takes us on a trip through time to explore Alien Trilogy for PlayStation 1. We've come a long way since then, but Kyle still finds plenty to like in this old-school shooter.

Then and Now: How my feelings for Final Fantasy XII have changed over time

Blogger TidusandYuna1983ZackandAerith gives his two cents on Final Fantasy XII. Or, or more specifically, how his views of the game have evolved over time. I remember enjoying the game quite a bit when it came out, but never beat it. I'd like to go back and see what I think of it now, and maybe even beat it.

Wii U Screen Shot Scrap Book #1

Happydude633 shows off screenshots he's been taking with his Wii U, and they're a sight to behold. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, Mario Kart 8, and more all make the cut. To be honest, I didn't even know this was a thing the Wii U could do, but I can't wait to try it out!
