Reader Discussion: Rise Of The Tomb Raider Or Fallout 4?

The two games don't have much in common, but they both release on Tuesday, and they're both highly anticipated. Which one are you more excited about?

The both have guns and both have aspect of exploration, but otherwise are fairly distinct experiences. Which on are you more excited to play? If Tome Raider wasn't an Xbox One exclusive, would that make a difference for you?

Personally, as I said on recent podcast, Rise of the Tomb Raider is my most anticipated game of 2015. 2013's Tomb Raider was my game of that year, and I can't to see what's next for the new Lara. I am still excited to play Fallout 4, as well, but on Tuesday, Tomb Raider is getting installed first. How about you?

Watch Teens Try, Fail, And React To Super Mario Maker's Hardest Levels

A new video from the React YouTube channel puts Super Mario Maker in the hands of players who are probably more familiar with Mario's 3D platformers than his 2D ones.

The first few levels aren't particularly hard, and while it's fun to watch the teens react to the levels, the highlight is definitely when they are introduced to @PangaeaPanga's infamous level, P-Break. It may Super Mario Maker's hardest level, and it's fun to see them realize just how absurd the level is.

For more from @PangaeaPanga, make sure to check out the latest issue of the magazine, where we chatted with him about his creations.

Pokémon Snap Began Its Life As A Jack And The Beanstalk Game

Pokémon Snap wasn't always a Pokémon game. In fact, the inclusion of Pokémon was apparently met with some resistance initially.

A recent episode of Did You Know Gaming looks at the history of the surprisingly popular Pokémon offshoot, and how it came to exist.

Thank You For Helping Us Raise Over $37,000 For Extra Life 2015

Thank You For Helping Us Raise Over $37,000 For Extra Life 2015

Update: The Game Informer community somehow outdid itself this year. You all helped us knock it out of the park by contributing $37,432 to Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare via Extra Life at the time of publishing this article, well over double our goal from last year. It makes sense the GI community would pull off such an awesome feat, since our Extra Life efforts started as a community-driven event with heroes like Zach Pligge, Jeremy Brown, and Extra Life’s very own Jack Gardner. After Game Informer started getting officially involved with these livestreams, we’ve spent the last several years trying to put on a bigger, dumber show for you all, complete with worthwhile rewards to help drum up support for a worthy cause. We really did it this year, so everyone pat themselves on the back. The results prove that we’re on the right track, and we promise something even better next year. Thank you so much to everyone who made this possible, from all the guests on the livestream to the folks watching and donating at home. You’re all awesome and we don't regret any of the too many ghost peppers. Your rewards are on the way and we owe you one script-reading of George A. Romero’s canceled “Resident Evil” film.

Reader Discussion: How Are You Feeling About The Warcraft Movie?

Are you optimistic? Pessimistic? Or have no opinion whatsoever?

The director, Duncan Jones, has a good track record. He directed Moon and Source Code and has demonstrated on a more than one occasion that he is a legitimate fan of the franchise. I, despite not being particularly interested in Warcraft or its fiction, am optimistic and excited to see the movie, but I want to know how you feel. Let us know in the comments below.

If you haven't see trailer for the movie, which was released yesterday, head here.

Mortal Kombat Creator Shares Single Screenshot Of Cancelled Mortal Kombat HD Remake

At one time, work on an HD remake of the original Mortal Kombat began. That project never came to be, but series creator Ed Boon recently shared a screenshot of the incomplete project.

Hi-Res Kombat .... one of these days I'll post an article explaining how the MK HD edition never came to be..... pic.twitter.com/oubqNSIyiv

You can check out the image above to see what the game may have looked like. It's unclear if this is just a conceptual piece, or an actual screenshot from the unfinished game.

Artist Mashes Up Fallout With Disney Princesses

Artist Petarsaur on DeviantArt has put together a collection imagining how Disney princesses would fare in Fallout's wasteland.

Above and below you will find their take on Snow White, but in the actual gallery, which you can find here, you will also see Rapunzel from Tangled, Alice from Alice in Wonderland, and Ariel from The Little Mermaid. It's definitely two worlds you wouldn't expect to mash-up, but it works pretty well. Disney, you might want to consider an adaptation of Fallout. I'm sure Pixar will let you use all the environments it created for Wall-E.

You Can't Play Fallout 4 Yet, But You Can Listen To The Soundtrack

about X hours ago from

If you want to go ahead and get into the Fallout 4 mood without playing it, the game's 65 track soundtrack is now available on iTunes.

You can find the soundtrack here and grab it for $15.99. Glancing briefly at the track list, it doesn't appear to call out any specific locations or character names or anything keeping it spoiler-free (as near as I can tell).

For more on Fallout 4, you can find our feature on the making of the game here.
