    Three Images from Resident Evil Film Reboot

    The gang seems to be (almost) all here.

    Sony released the first look at the characters for the upcoming Resident Evil film reboot. This isn't exactly the first time we have seen glimpses of the film. Back in December 2020, the film wrapped principal photography and we didn't hear much about the movie until now. However, this is the first time we've been given a good look at the characters we've come to know and love and uh, well... here they are.

    343 Industries Offers Reason why Halo Infinite's Campaign Wasn't at Gamescom

    Fans were left disappointed last week.

    This past week was Gamescom, and while a number of titles were shown off there were definitely some notable absences.

Though the game had its release date revealed alongside a new cinematic trailer, there still wasn't any fresh look at the game's campaign.

    In case there was any doubt about this.

    Hey imagine that, a FromSoftware game that's difficult. Wow, never saw that one coming.

If you are one of those Gamers who like a challenge and don't want it watered down by playing with a friend, don't you worry one little bit about that! FromSoftware says that the summon...

    Just in case you thought they were getting too serious with the reboot.

    Volition and Deep Silver recently revealed their reboot for the Saints Row franchise during Gamescom Opening Night Live.

    Yes, that Skate.

    EA just announced today that Skate (or is it Skate 4, or maybe skate.?) is also coming to the PC in addition to consoles. The confirmation was made via a short yet pretty clear tweet made earlier today.

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
