See What Somber Secrets Shadow Of The Colossus Hides Behind The Camera

Shadow of the Colossus is a wonderful game, asking us to reflect on our actions and consider the weight of violence and its cause. It's also a video game, which means there's a lot of fun little levers and pulleys working behind the scenes when you're not looking.

Youtuber Shesez is back with another episode of Boundary Break, this time tacking a look at the PS2 version of this seminal game. Is the first colossus actually behind the cliff you first see him emerge from? How far does the light emitted by Wander's sword reach? Watch the video to find out.

For a look at the remake, check out our New Gameplay Today and sick stunts videos.

Rumor: Developer Portfolio Listing Hints At PS4 Version Of MGS HD Collection

Rumor: Developer Portfolio Listing Hints At PS4 Version Of MGS HD Collection

There's a somewhat irritating lack of Metal Gear games on modern consoles, but a recent listing could hint at that being rectified pretty soon.

Armature, the developer of the Vita version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, currently lists "PS4" under the list of platforms it's developed the port on. This might hint at a future announcement of a PS4 version of the game. However, mistakes like this can happen, so take this tidbit with a grain of salt.

With Kojima out of Konami and working on Death Stranding and most of the spotlight currently falling on survival-oriented spinoff Metal Gear Survive, it makes sense of Konami to begin looking backwards for new revenue. We've reached out to Konami for a statement and will update this article should they reply.

Friday The 13th Game Introducing New Single-Player Challenges

Friday The 13th Game Introducing New Single-Player Challenges

After a less-than-stellar release, Friday the 13th has slowly been making amends by adding new content, characters, modes, and more. The latest content is a new set of single-player challenges, which should offer players looking for something to do between matches something to do.

Publisher Gun Media showed off a trailer giving us a taste of what these challenges have to offer. In the sample challenge, players, as Jason, have to murder two stranded teenagers who are repairing their car. Considering the methodical pace at which the person player approached the situation, it's likely the objective includes not being seen. It could also be a bonus.

The challenges feature gory, situational kills depending on where Jason kills their target. When one character lifts the rear tire axl of his car in order to fix it, Jason removes the holding the car up, crushing the teen's head.

Someone Made A New Game For The Sega Genesis, Decades After The Console's Release

Someone Made A New Game For The Sega Genesis, Decades After The Console's Release

If you happen to have your Sega Genesis (or Mega Drive, outside the US) hooked up to your TV right now, you're in luck! There's a new game you can play on it.

Developer Matt Phillips has released Tanglewood, a sidescrolling platformer he made using the same tools as developers of the 90s used in order to approach the project with an authenticity most faux-retro games of the current age lack. "I like to work with the restrictions of the system itself rather than making it for a modern PC on a modern engine," Phillips told the BBC. "I've done a lot of that in my lifetime. I'm getting a bit bored of that."

Phillips, who lives in the UK, created the game using an original Mega Drive development kit running on a Windows 95 PC, both of which required several repairs over the course of development. To get a better look at the game in action and learn more about Phillips' process (which includes reaching out to a factory in China to manufacture a cartridge for it) check out the BBC segment here.

Splatoon 2's February Splatfest Pits Money Against Love

Cake vs. Ice Cream! Rock vs. Pop! Vampires Vs. Werewolves! All fun, consequence-free choices that fueled the competitive drive of the Splatoon 2 community. All of that ends next week, when Nintendo asks us a question that rocks us to our very core: Which do you value most: Money or Love?

Does the affection of your friends, family, coworkers and other people in your life drive you to become a better person, since the human connections we create as we make our way through life are all that matter in an otherwise cruel world? Or do you embrace and fuel the world's cruelty, since as Orson Welles said, we're born alone, live alone, and die alone, and thus, in the potential absence of a higher power, we may as well enjoy the ride while we're here?

Pick a side and shoot other people with ink in the colorful world of Splatoon 2 starting February 16 at 11pm Central and see where the community stands in this fun event!

What If The Solo Trailer Featured The Han Solo Theme Song Instead?

What If The Solo Trailer Featured The Han Solo Theme Song Instead?

Yeah, sure, there's some hype for Solo: A Star Wars Story. It has Don Glover, who's always been great. It tells the story of a generation-defining puckish rogue. That's cool. But what if it had "I'm Han Solo" playing instead?

That's the question this video from Youtube channel ShoopTube attempts to answer. The song, which originated in 2012's inexplicable Star Was Kinect, was part of a dance section taking place in the conveniently-placed carbonite freezing chamber that encased Han Solo in said carbonite on Bespin. Over the years, it has become infamous as an example of the silliness of the Star Wars license, in both good and bad ways.

Check out the video below and hum the song to yourself when you go see the movie in theaters on May 25.

Weekend Warrior - Shadow Of The Lunar New Year

This year started off strong with a number of big releases that are still keeping us busy. This weekend we hope to reach level 9000 in Dragon Ball FighterZ, continue slaying Colossi, and have some good fortune during Overwatch's Lunar New Year event. Is your weekend crammed with these games as well? Let us know what you're up to in the comments below!

Jon Bowman (@MrGameAndWrite) – I’ve got an unnamed challenger ready to be destroyed in Dragon Ball FighterZ (you know who you are). After that, I’ll bounce back and forth between beating Celeste and sinking into Shadow of the Colossus.

Javy Gwaltney (@HurdyIV) – I'm going to be running around in Rust in the buff, beating strangers to death with a rock! Also, diving back into Metro Redux and Assassin's Creed Origins.
