about X hours ago from

Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard's upcoming all-star MOBA, is coming to the final phase of its technical alpha, and it means soon players will be starting from scratch.

The alpha currently allows players to make purchases using real money, and for those who did take advantage of the option, their money will be refunded to their battle.net accounts following the reset. This means they will be able to easily repurchase items when the shop comes back online.

The shop is going offline starting tomorrow, but during the downtime, all of the game's 29 heroes will be available for players to use for free.

about X hours ago from

Big Boss has a new friend in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and it's one that he probably won't ever call to chat with on his codec.

Revealed during TGS, it turns out Big Boss can recruit a dog (it might actually be a wolf) named DD (short for Diamond Dog) to his war. You can find a collection of screens with DD in the gallery below. Big Boss finds him as a puppy, and Ocelot can raise and groom him for you.

For more Metal Gear from TGS, head here to learn about the buddy system. You can also check out our coverage hub with features on both series installments bearing the Metal Gear Solid V name.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse Heading To PC, TGS Trailer Details Story

about X hours ago from

We recently learned Xenoverse's mysterious character is a player-customized avatar. Now we know why they're fighting alongside Goku and pals.

In the game's TGS trailer, we learn that the Dragon Ball Z timeline is askew. Things are out of whack, and to help restore balance, Shenron (the dragon summoned by collecting the Dragon Balls) has brought the fellow you see on the right above. A character that can be customized to the player's liking.

The trailer also reveals that the game is planned for release on PC via steam, alongside Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Watch Your Favorite Persona Characters Dance Their Heart Out

about X hours ago from

Confirmed for release in North America earlier this year, Atlus has released a TGS trailer for Persona 4: Dancing All Night.

As expected, based on the game's title, you will see a lot of dancing, even from Teddie. The trailer is in Japanese, but music is a universal language (a trait it has in common with math) and it reveals an ambiguous 2015 launch. We'll have to wait and see if that 2015 date also applies to the North American release, as well.

Sonic And Friends Remain Fun

about X hours ago from

We already checked out Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Wii U at this past Comic Con, so we made sure to get some hands-on time with Shattered Crystal for 3DS while at Tokyo Game Show. Sonic Boom is a new imagining of the Sonic universe and will have its own TV show. Fans weren't sure what to think when they first saw some of the screenshots of their beloved characters. And rightfully so, Sonic has experienced plenty of ups and downs in the past few years. Games like Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) failed to impress, while others like Sonic Colors and Generations kept gamers content. Playing Shattered Crystal, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I found that I had more fun than I was anticipating.

New Trailer Sets Up The Story

about X hours ago from

It's still mostly vague and mysterious, but a new trailer for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (sort of) sets up the game's story.

There are some mysterious bells that don't sound like school bells, and they could lead to your death. Also, there is a chemically weaponized crossbow, and Teddie gets flattened.

You can check out the trailer for the game below which launches for 3DS on November 25.

Alien: Isolation Has Made Me A Believer

about X hours ago from

Earlier this year, I got to play Alien: Isolation for the first time. The demo was thrilling and I walked away wanting more, but, as I pointed out in this month’s cover story, I didn’t have a whole lot of context for what I was seeing. The Creative Assembly did a great job of setting up the action before dropping me into a station with the creature – unarmed, no less – but I wanted to see it unfold myself. Months later, I got my wish. I was able to play the game from its opening moments through the game’s seventh chapter. In that time, I got my bearings on Sevastopol station, met up with some of its hostile inhabitants, and had my interest in the game cemented. Read on for my updated reasons for why I think The Creative Assembly is making the Alien game that could help redeem the franchise.

Forza Horizon 2 Joins In On The Live-Action Commercial Trend

Microsoft has teamed up with production studio twofifteenmccann to create a live-action trailer for the upcoming Forza Horizon 2.

You can check out the video below, which imagines Forza's world as part of a large electric slot car track. Everything changes, however, when one car decides to leave the confines of the restrictive race track and ruin yards around the world by driving through them.

For some feedback on Forza Horizon 2's demo, which is currently available on Xbox One, head here. Forza Horizon 2 launches for Xbox 360 and Xbox One September 30.
