The new Star Wars Battlefront trailer mixes gameplay footage with cinematics, showing off the huge battles that will take place between Rebel forces and the Empire on some very familiar planets and one previously unexplored territory. Watch! Read More »
Back in August, video gamer and expert mod creator JulioNIB spiced up Grand Theft Auto V by introducing an Iron Man suit, complete with flying capabilities and repulsor blasters to create chaos in Los Santos. And now he’s moved on to Tony Starks science bro for his latest mod.
The Incredible Hulk is the latest character that JulioNIB has decided to bring into GTAV, and he’s like a big green freight train just tearing through the city, knocking cars around like toys, destroying anything in his path. Someone is gonna have to call in Veronica to stop him.
Check out the Grand Theft Auto V Hulk mod below! Read More »

The message of this new Star Wars: Battlefront trailer seems to be “Your life sucks, but don’t worry, a new Star Wars video game is on the way!”, which is hilarious and strangely sweet in equal measure. Pulling hard enough at your heartstrings to trigger cardiac arrest, this trailer is less about selling a brand new video game and more about selling nostalgia… which will then convince you to go out and buy that brand new video game. To be fair, that game does look pretty, pretty cool.

MGM is playing a game, and it would like you, the viewer, to join it. The studio announced today that it’s reviving WarGames as a video game of sorts — or rather, an interactive digital short that “combines the narrative of a compelling movie with the responsiveness of a great game.”
That means viewers will get to determine the outcome, potentially making for a slightly different narrative every time you watch it. Get full details on the WarGames interactive short after the jump. Read More »
The Assassin’s Creed movie has only just started filming and it’s already in the running for the best video game movie of all time. Mainly because there hasn’t been a single genuinely good video game movie adaptation yet. When the high point of your genre is Paul W.S. Anderson’s Mortal Kombat, you have a problem. So by hiring an actor as interesting as Michael Fassbender and a director as promising as Justin Kurzel, Ubisoft has already given itself a huge leg up in this race. Even if the movie’s a stinker, it will undoubtedly be one of the best video game movies ever by default.
Now, Jean-Julien Baronnet, the CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, is comparing the film adaptation of their long-running franchise to Batman Begins and Blade Runner. Those are some big words right there.

There has been a handful of video games based on the foul-mouthed animated series South Park from Comedy Central, and most of them are pretty terrible. There was a first-person shooter for the Nintendo 64 at the height of the show’s early controversial popularity, a racing game called South Park Rally and some mess of a game called South Park: Chef’s Luv Shack.
Thankfully, they’ve gotten better with the most recent release of South Park: The Stick of Truth; maybe that run will continue with the forthcoming sequel called South Park: The Fractured But Whole. (Get it?) But did you know there was another game in the works in the early 2000s that never saw the light of day? See footage from this unreleased South Park video game below! Read More »

Not unlike trailer mash-ups and supercuts, there are plenty of video game modifications out there for those who choose to do their gaming on computers. Specifically, Grand Theft Auto has seen some awesome mods that have brought the Iron Man suit to GTA V and the Back to the Future DeLorean time machine to GTA IV.
But few mods bring something as big as this into the video game world. Gamer Justin Lewis (aka “JJxORACLE”) from Arterius Modding has created a mod that lets gamers fly an Imperial Star Destroyer in Grand Theft Auto V. And we’re not talking about a scaled down Star Destroyer. We’re talking about a massive starship cruising over Los Santos. Read More »
