The Hum: Abductions Trailer — Hearing is Believing

Magicka 2 An Interview Without the Vampire Trailer — Just give the man some blood already!

I’m a hacker, slasher, bludgener. Give me a claymore, a broadsword or better yet, a war hammer. Mixing potions and waving wands and squirting colorful streams of light? Not me.

There’s no gameplay in the new trailer for Sid Meier’s Starships, but we know it’ll spin around the Civilization and Beyond Earth gravitational pull, the latter especially. Turn-based,… Read More »

Mortal Kombat X Gameplay Trailer – I love Goro, but who still pre-orders video games?

The Mortal Kombat X trailer is tough to watch. Not because of its trademark ultra-violent finishes – which includes a head sliced like a watermelon – but because it throws an annoying jab at the end. Not a gameplay jab, but an offline one. An insult, actually. Some genius MBA at Mortal Kombat-ville thought it… Read More »
