  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III trailer wants you to find your inner Kevin [video]

    In case you didn't know that there are games other than Rise of the Tomb Raider and Fallout 4 releasing this month, Activision just gave the world a great reminder. Call of Duty: Black Ops III is one of those "you either hate it or love it" titles, but we bet everyone will love this live action trailer. Starring Michael B. Jordan, Cara Delevingne, and Marshawn Lynch, the trailer follows the in-game tactics of a chap called Kevin has he lays havoc and slices robotic heads from shoulders. It's pretty badass, and gets even more so when Cara Delevingne shows up. The title...

  • Haunted Colosseum is Dota 2’s Halloween-inspired custom mode [video]

    Everyone's getting into the Halloween spirit this weekend, and not surprisingly. On that note, Valve has also joined in the fun announcing a new game mode for Dota 2 players dubbed Haunted Colosseum. Read more: Happy Halloween: the 3 must play horror games of 2015 It's a little different from the regular Dota 2 formula, and forces two teams to combat one another along one path. Along said path lie five Control Points. "Own three Control Points and your team’s score will rise," notes the announcement. "Own more than three, and your team will score points even faster!" Effectively, the long and...

  • Can you beat Super Mario Bros. in less than five minutes? [video]

    Speed runs aren't exactly in the best interests of the game designers, but players absolutely revel in them, especially of classic titles like Super Mario Bros. Hell, I remember having quite a ball guiding Mario through the fires of the eight worlds only to be murdered by Bowser at the end. But this particular player, Darbian, has broken the speed run world record for Super Mario Bros., clocking a time of 4:57:627. That's four minutes, fifty-seven seconds, sixth tenths and change. It's an amazing feat especially considering that he was using the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and not an emulator. While...

  • Forgot what happened in Halo 4? Here’s your recap [video]

    I barely remember what I had for dinner last night so there's a fat chance that I remember what happened in 2012's Halo 4. If you're like me, you're going to want to watch this, especially if you've pre-ordered Halo 5: Guardians and raring to go. The Xbox UK YouTube channel has been graciously publishing recap videos for the past week weeks, highlighting the storyline of the Halo series and giving those new to the series a little information before Halo 5's imminent launch. The latest in the series is Halo 4, which launched back in November 2012. In typical fashion,...

  • Fallout 4, Star Wars: Battlefront and GTA V: the TGIF Video Roundup

    Welcome to the TGIF Video Roundup, a weekly series where we explore, highlight and poke fun at some of the videos, trailers and clips that have made the internet a fun place to be this week. If you missed our last roundup, catch it below. Read more: PlayStation 4 streaming, Ethan Hunt’s return and ‘ZOMBI': the TGIF Video Roundup It would be more than an understatement to say that we have neglected the TGIF Video Roundup in recent months, because we've practically forgotten about it, laid it to rest and planted a sunflower on it. But that's about to change. And we...

  • Backstreet’s Back, at least in this Destiny reenactment [video]

    If you were born anywhere near the early Nineties, chances are you knew exactly who the Backstreet Boys were. And if you hated them, like much of the world's population back then, you might want to avoid the next few paragraphs. Husky Raid, a Destiny crew, has remade the Backstreet's Back video, one of the boy band's most famous tracks, within the game. And if that sounds dumb, we promise you that it's worth sticking around for the entire three minute runtime even if you think NSYNC was better. What's perhaps the most impressive thing about the performance is how Husky Raid...

  • Street Fighter V’s Laura knows a thing or two about kicking ass [video]

    Street Fighter V is slowly becoming one of the most eagerly anticipated launches of 2016, at least for fighting nuts and PlayStation 4 owners. And thanks to a new trailer, we have another character to look forward to. Laura, a brand new character, is a Brazilian fighter who seems to really enjoy tenderising Ken. In the video, she's seen using a combination of fast-paced grappling moves a splash of jiu-jitsu and, well, lightning. She was leaked earlier this week after Famitsu fumbled its assets, releasing them a little earlier than Capcom intended. But oh well, it's one step closer to the...

  • DOOM on the Apple Watch is a technical masterpiece [video]

    Porting games and even entire operating systems to smartwatches is old hat. We've seen Windows 98 boot on a Sony smartwatch before, but that isn't nearly as impressive, or interesting, as this. A team of Facebook developers, Lior Tubi and Mehdi Mulani, from Tel-Aviv, Israel has managed to port DOOM (yes, John Carmack's masterpiece) onto an Apple Watch running watchOS 2. If it sounds crazy, it's probably because it is. "e had a 10-hour hackathon in our Facebook Tel-Aviv office, and the idea was to hack around iOS stuff," Tubi notes in the video description. "Apple has released beta versions for watchOS 2...

  • Minecraft: Story Mode coming 13 October courtesy of Telltale [video]

    Episodic gaming has seen a minor revival thanks to Dontnod Entertainment's Life Is Strange and Telltale Games' recent dally with the Games of Thrones series. But the latter is about to take on one of gaming's biggest challenges: stuff a story mode into Minecraft. Its Minecraft: Story Mode series will consist of five episodes, with the first one launching on 13 October 2015 for PC, iOS, Android and Nintendo's Wii U. And while one might wonder why on earth Mojang's hit title, possibly the most open of open world games, needs a story mode well, it's simple. Not everyone enjoys...

  • How waterproof is the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus? [video]

    With rumours suggesting that the iPhone 7 will be waterproof running about the internet, the world is obviously more curious to see just how otter-like the current iPhone 6S is. And why not? It's only a US$649 phone. Nevertheless, YouTuber Zach Straley decided this was a splendid idea and promptly dropped both the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus phablet into a bowl of the wet stuff with the timers ticking over. And? Well, the results were rather impressive, so much so, that Straley decided to record two separate videos. Here's the first: And if you didn't find that impressive enough, have a...
