  • Here’s what Mario could look like as an ‘Unreal’ Nintendo NX character

    Nintendo doesn't want its Nintendo NX console's secrets strewn across the internet, but that doesn't stop developers from pondering what the company is cooking in the back rooms of Kyoto. Reggie Fils-Aime has declared that it will be a home console, and thus compete with the likes of the Xbox and PlayStation consoles, but the real question remains: just how does Nintendo aim to to this? Well, a new video of Mario hurtling through an Unreal Engine 4 powered world certainly gives a glimpse into what's available at Nintendo's fingertips should they decide to grasp it. The company has always been happy...

  • ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ trailer wants you to ‘be the Batman’ [video]

    Heroes have it rough in the world of comics and motion pictures. Not only are they ridiculed and spat on fairly often, but they also face probable death daily for those who don't really care if they live or die. But we care, at least about Batman (and definitely not Spider-Man). The flying mammal-inspired franchise has seen a number of console game reboots over the years, with the last in the Arkham series arriving in 2011. Today sees the launch of Batman: Arkham Knight, a grittier, darker interpretation of the hero from Rocksteady. As far as trailers go too, this is probably...

  • ‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ is Konami and Kojima at their best [video]

    If you don't watch this one in at least 1080p, you just aren't doing it any justice. The world has waited a while for the next Metal Gear Solid instalment, and finally Konami at E3 2015 announced that the title's coming to consoles, both previous and current-gen, on 1 September. It'll be called Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. While there's not long to wait, this five minute trailer makes it really difficult to remain calm. The game will follow on story-wise from Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and gamers will play as Big Boss, and while in many games...

  • ‘Mad Max: Eye of the Storm’ gets the gritty story trailer it deserves [video]

    We're seeing a bit of an overlap this year when it comes to movies and games. Previous console greats like Ratchet & Clank are getting the big screen treatment, and a game based on said big screen treatment (it's supposed to be confusing), what what's more interesting is Mad Max and its spinoff title. Mad Max: Fury Road, starring a bald Charlize Theron and the ever hardcore Tom Hardy did damn well at the box office and critically for that matter, scoring a near perfect 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. But it's game version, Mad Max: Eye of the Storm also...

  • The new ‘Ratchet & Clank’ is as Pixar-like as games get [video]

    If you haven't heard, there's a Ratchet & Clank movie hitting screens later this year starring the likes of the original Ratchet voice actor James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye (who played Megatron in all Transformer movies) and Paul Giamatti, who needs no introduction. Many don't know that while the movie is drawing to a close (scheduled for release a little earlier in 2016), there's a concurrent game being crafted behind the scenes by Insomniac Games, and it looks an absolute beauty. The storyline is practically the same as the movie: Ratchet and Clank are tasked with saving the galaxy from Chairman...

  • Bethesda confirms Fallout 4 and here’s the trailer to prove it [video]

    We all knew it was coming, but we just didn't quite know when. Bethesda recently launched a countdown ticker on its site to warn visitors of an impending announcement, and thankfully, after long last the company has announced that it is indeed readying Fallout 4 for a current-gen and PC launch. Although not much is known about the game at this point, we have a fairly good idea of what we could find. Rumour has it that it's set a little north of the Maryland setting of Fallout 3, around the Boston city area, based on a slew of landmarks...

  • ‘PlayBox 4 One’ XL boasts 24-inch screen, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in one body [video]

    If you're a seasoned YouTube surfer and you don't know who Ed Zarick is, shame on you. The man has been crafting truly epic devices inspired by the world of tech (and what we imagine is his own insane imagination) for quite a while now. We last reported on Ed's previous creation, which boasted an Xbox One and a PlayStation 4 sharing the same shell, which the world thought was the end. Since then, he's refined the design, and now, he's selling them. But that's only half the story. The first chap standing in line for one is none other than Wayne...

  • This ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ trailer wants us all to man-up [video]

    The latest trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight could easily be confused with the Gotham TV series. The first minute jumps between a couple of Gothamites, each suffering their own form of social challenges in the dark, dark city. That's until they all decide to man-up and take on their oppressors. #BeTheBatman, the hashtag reads. PlayStation.Blog writes: It’s the moments when we are all tested that we explore in our new live-action trailer: times of trial, and how we can rise above them. Selflessness, determination, and courage are all traits that we share with the Dark Knight, and so in many ways we...

  • We’d definitely buy this 3D ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ game, if it was a game

    Can Sonic the Hedgehog be put in the same "iconic character" category as the likes of Mario and Link? Well, we believe so, and so do these chaps it seems. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Paper Mario, a production team going by the name of pipocaVFX has made every gamer giddy with excitement. While Mario and Link have seen their respective series gain entertaining high-definition 3D remasterings and re-imaginings, SEGA's Sonic hasn't really been that privileged. The last Sonic game (Sonic Boom) if anyone dares to remember, was pretty damn terrible, but pipocaVFX's dream of a 2D Sonic game with...
