  • This is Why Claptrap has a New Voice Actor in Borderlands 3

    This is Why Claptrap has a New Voice Actor in Borderlands 3

    David Eddings says Gearbox just didn't want to pay him.

    If you've seen any promotional material for Borderlands 3 in the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed that Claptrap sounds quite a bit different from what you're used to. This is because David Eddings, the voice behind the robot in all of the previous games has been replaced by Jim Foronda.

    The reason? Money. Specifically, the claim from Eddings that Gearbox didn't want to pay Eddings for his work in Borderlands...

    Sonic Movie Director Says They'll Make Sonic Look Less Weird


    Jeff Fowler, the director on the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie says that they have heard the fan feedback.

    Yesterday, the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie was released and uh, Sonic looked odd, to put it nicely. For God's sake, he had human teeth! Why?!

    World War Z to Receive Post-Launch Content as Game Sales Surpass 1 Million


    World War Z is the latest, and some may say greatest, co-op shooter that places you and three of your friends against massive hordes of the living dead.

    World War Z has also apparently sold quite well, having sold over 1 million units in its first week of being on sale on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store (yep, it's an affiliate link). As such, you may expect that the game will be receiving some fresh content in the months ahead and you'd be correct....

    Close to the Sun Brings Some Electrifying Horror to PC Today


    Publisher Wired Productions and Italian development studio, Storm in a Teacup, have released Close to the Sun on the Epic Games Store. It will be coming later this year for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Close to the Sun is a first-person horror adventure with plenty of art deco design, a massive ship, and Nikola Tesla. As mentioned, it's available right now only on the Epic Games Store for $29.99 (USD). And no, it's not like BioShock. They want to make that very, very clear. It's just that they both have a whole lot of that art deco thing going on.

    Having played this one for review, I will say that the review will be coming very shortly for Close to the Sun. The review codes were sent out only earlier this week and I really don't like to rush through games I play, especially for review. ...

  • New Earthworm Jim Game Announced Exclusively for Intellivision Amico

    New Earthworm Jim Game Announced Exclusively for Intellivision Amico


    Where do I even begin with this one?

    There once existed a game console called the Intellivision. It was released first in 1979 and ran through until about 1990. Its controller consisted of some side buttons, a disc-based d-pad, and a 12 digit keypad that accepted plastic overlays for every game so that you knew what the buttons did.

    For whatever reason, Intellivision is coming back as Intellivision Amico. It's slated to be released in late 2020. It still features...

    Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Trailer Has Some Teeth


    Sonic the Hedgehog is a movie about a blue hedgehog with oddly long legs that has human teeth.

    There is a live-action comedy coming out from Paramount that features Sonic the Hedgehog. Coincidentally, his name is also the name of the movie. This trailer shows us a few things:

    First, it shows us that Sonic the Hedgehog has very human teeth. It's weird and kind of creepy.


    Secondly, it shows us a Jim Carrey role that allows him to be goofy again....

    by Shawn Zipay
    An announcement is expected to take place soon.

    For a little while now, rumors suggested that Xbox will begin to offer many of their first-party titles on competing hardware platforms. Just this week, those rumors were given more substance from a number of sources that say games such as Starfield, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Hi-Fi Rush, and even Gears of War could end up on PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
