  • Where Should Batman Go Next?

    46

    By now, many of you have finished Batman: Arkham City. Some of this game's side missions and secrets hint at possible sequel directions, such as (SPOILERS from here on in) Batman saying he'll track down Hush tomorrow, Harley Quinn having Joker's baby, or Azrael saying that Gotham and Batman will both burn. Devoted players have even found secret radio messages that hints at a "nightmare" returning to Gotham, which of course points toward Scarecrow. More

    Arkham City's secrets and side content point toward a potential sequel, or should Rocksteady mine Batman's extensive comic continuity for their next game?

  • A Snow White Movie That Looks Bad Ass?

    29

    The first trailer for Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman is up on iTunes. I probably wouldn't have watched this trailer if not for Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski tweeting "Holy crap, this Snow White movie looks kick ass. #thingsIneverthoughtIwouldsay." Believe it or not, this trailer looks amazing and unlike anything I ever thought would carry the Snow White name. Get this – it even looks cool with that Twilight chick in it. More

  • Why Dark Souls Is One Of My Games Of The Year

    43

    A few weeks ago I posted a blog titled "Why Dead Island is One of My Games of the Year." You're probably seeing a theme in my naming conventions. Games I don't review and feel will be on my top 10 list at the end of the year are going to get a similarly titled blog. I would make one for Portal 2, but I already listed it in My Top 25 Games of This Console Generation list, so that one is more than covered. More

    Here are the reasons why I love Dark Souls, and why you should consider playing it.

  • Is This The New Godzilla?

    54 1

    If I ran a movie company, half of the films would be science fiction and the other half would be monster movies. Roger Corman has kept the monster movie genre alive on Syfy with his low-budget films, but there really hasn't been much going on on the silver screen. Legendary Pictures has been talking about rebooting the Godzilla franchise with director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) and writer David Goyer (The Dark Knight), but a filming start date and potential release date haven't been announced as of yet. More

    Images of a new Godzilla are flooding the internet. Is this our first look at the upcoming film?

  • 31 Reasons Why I'll Be Broke By The End Of 2011

    96

    You may not realize it yet, but video games' busy season is upon us. The release of Gears of War 3 next Tuesday starts a string of 10 consecutive weeks holding at least one game I hope to purchase. I tried to save up as much cash as I could, and even worked out an agreement with my wife Kelly that allowed for $30 from each of my paychecks to be put in a separate video game fund. Even with all of my saving, I look to be about a billion dollars shy of having the funds needed to buy everything I want this year. Yes, I know, most people don't always get what they want, but that doesn't mean I can't complain about it. More

  • Parting With The Collection

    67 1

    Over the last two decades I've amassed a sizable video game collection. It doesn't come close to comparing in size to Game Informer's vault, but it has taken over a large portion of my house. You can't turn a corner without seeing a game or two. Most of my collection is locked away in boxes and hidden in the dark recesses of basement closets. These games deserve better homes. These games deserve to be played. More

    In celebration of Domino's Pizza's 25th anniversary in Japan, the pizza flinging company announced that it wants to open up a branch on the moon, complete with futuristic bowling and Honda moon-scooters. More

  • Great Scott! Nike Making Back To The Future Shoes!

    24 1

    Update: The shoes are real. Nike will be auctioning off 1,500 of them on Ebay starting tonight. Word on the streets is that this is the entire run of the shoes. All proceeds go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation and the search for a cure to Parkinson's disease. I'm going to throw in as much cash as I can for a pair. Wish me luck!

    [View:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eihSPj9lSMw&feature=player_embedded:610:343]

    Frank Marshall, the producer of the amazing Back to the Future films, tweeted "Something big is coming soon. Can't say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny. #BTTF." He followed his tweet up with a YouTube video that clearly shows Nike is making a line of shoes inspired by the self-lacing sneakers Marty McFly wore in 2015. As you can see, they have flashing lights, a neon glow, and what would appear to be self-lacing technology. More

    Looks like we'll be sporting our 2015 look a few years early.

  • Why Dead Island Is One Of My Games Of The Year

    44

    The year is still young, and I'm sure many of my top picks from it will release between now and the end of November. From Portal 2 to Dead Space 2, 2011 has already brought a handful of amazing games, and one of them is a game that I followed closely over the course of the last two years, but thought would be a flop, not the must-play experience I can't seem to get enough of. That game is Dead Island. More

    I've put over 20 hours into this game, and I'm loving what I've seen thus far. Read on to find out why.

  • "Like The Musée Du Louvre Of Games" – A Tour Of My Game Informer Office

    65

    Randy Pitchford recently showed us his office (which is okay), and although Ben Hanson refused to shoot video of my office, I figured I would do the same thing. Most people cannot fully comprehend the levels of awesome that are contained within my office's four walls. I usually have to tell people "Don't touch that!" and "Please stop bringing your family by to look at my office." More

    My office is awesome! Take a tour with me and I'll show you why.
