We’re ‘Taken’ A Look At Destiny’s Shotgun-Filled, Led Zeppelin-Backed, Live Action Trailer

If you stepped away from Destiny, there are a lot of reasons to come back right now. The new leveling system means you might even be able to get through House of Wolves (and earn those Marks of Triumph) before it’s too late.

Activision and Bungie both have a history of solid live-action trailers, and their forces combined have delivered another good one. If only that fireteam brought three friends to fight Oryx.

Fallout 4's S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Strength Stat Explained Thanks To Vault-Tec

Fallout 4 is exactly two months away, and it’s time to start thinking about how you’ll survive in the wasteland. Bethesda is keeping quiet on the story, but that doesn’t mean complete radio silence.

In this first of (we assume) seven videos on the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stat system, we learn about the importance of strength. Increasing this stat improves your carrying capacity and gives you a boost with melee weapons.

We Go Hands-On With Telltale And Mojang’s Collaboration

about X hours ago from

Exploration is a key element of Mojang’s wildly popular Minecraft. From the first moments players step into the game, they can explore the world, as well as how they can use the world’s natural resources to their advantage. Perhaps the most compelling aspect, however, is the exploration of the player’s creativity. In spite of all of this, one area remained largely unexplored in the video game: the story.

With Minecraft: Story Mode, Telltale and Mojang have worked together to fill that narrative-shaped hole in a way that is satisfying and enjoyable for fans of both studios’ work. Novelists and fan-fiction authors have attempted to chisel a story out of the rich Minecraft universe, but Telltale’s collaboration with Mojang is the first time that a cohesive arc has been attempted in any official capacity. 

Star Wars: Battlefront’s Drop Zone Mode Pits Teams Of Eight In A Race To Capture Objectives

Star Wars: Battlefront’s Drop Zone Mode Pits Teams Of Eight In A Race To Capture Objectives

Star Wars: Battlefront is shaping up to have all the modes you’d expect from a shooter (like the recently revealed Blast deathmatch mode). The latest to be revealed is “Drop Zone,” which pits two teams of eight against each other in a race for capture points.

Players won’t know where they’ll be needed, though. Pods fall from the sky, marking the next point of interest. Once captured, the pods slowly open delivering a power up to the team in control.

Modes move quickly, lasting no more than 10 minutes. They can be ended faster if one team manages to control five pods.

Devastator Rules In Our Look Back At The Classic Transformer

Devastator Rules In Our Look Back At The Classic Transformer

Transformers: Devastation is on the way later this year on October 6, and in honor of the impending release, we decided to take a look at one of the game's biggest stars, the giant combiner robot, Devastator. Tim Turi and I sat down to look at the recent Comic-Con exclusive version of the figure, screen some footage of the character in Platinum's upcoming game, and talk about the history of the character and what makes him so cool.

For those new to the Transformers mythology, Devastator was the original combining robot in the fiction, though the history of combining robots in Japanese popular culture had existed for several years prior. Devastator is formed of six individual Constructicons – Scrapper, Hook, Bonecrusher, Long Haul, Mixmaster, and Scavenger – but only by combining together into one giant robot do they reach the height of their power. In the original cartoon, the Constructicons were cast as former friends of the giant Autobot, Omega Supreme, only to later betray the gentle giant and take up arms with the Decepticons. 

Take a look back with us at Devastator, as well as a look forward to both his current toy and game versions, and share your memories of the G1 Transformers in the comments below.
