GameSpot's Game Of The Year 2018

In 2010, GameSpot's Game of the Year was none other than Red Dead Redemption. Eight years later, that game remains one of our all-time favorites, and leaving John Marston behind to step into Arthur Morgan's story wasn't easy. Red Dead Redemption 2 ended up being everything we could have wanted in a prequel, but it's also a moving, often heartbreaking, and oddly hopeful story that stands independently of its predecessor--and that's only part of the reason why Red Dead 2 is GameSpot's 2018 Game of the Year.

It's fair to say that Red Dead Redemption 2 faced incredibly high expectations. For fans, there was the matter of how to follow the original Red Dead Redemption. More generally, there was the simple fact that GTA V, Rockstar's previous game, is among the most successful entertainment properties of all time, as well as the promise that Red Dead 2's open world would be vast and incredibly detailed (including the horse anatomy). Going into Red Dead 2, you'd be forgiven for expecting it to be a big cowboy playground where you can go anywhere and do anything an outlaw might care to do. And in some ways, it is--but it's remarkable for the ways in which it isn't.

New The Walking Dead Season Season 9 Art Finally Shows The Whisperers

New The Walking Dead Season Season 9 Art Finally Shows The Whisperers

The Whisperers are coming. It's something we've known for a while about The Walking Dead and, thus far in Season 9, we've gotten lots of teases for the new villains on the show but have yet to actually meet any of them. Well, that changes now.

AMC has released new key art for the show's return in February, which prominently features new cast member Samantha Morton as Alpha, leader of the Whisperers. If she doesn't look too familiar in the image below, there's a reason for that. The Whisperers are unlike any other force your favorite survivors have come up against before. They move among the walkers by wearing the skin of the dead over their own. Yes, it's as disgusting as it sounds and GameSpot will have plenty more details about the new group as we get closer to the mid-season premiere.

However, in living among the walkers, it brings the Whisperers a kind of freedom many in this horrible world don't have. It seems they don't necessarily fear the dead, which is a powerful trait to have.

Hobbs & Shaw: The Rock And Jason Statham Get Ready In Fast & Furious Spin-Off Image

The next Fast & Furious movie isn't scheduled to be released until 2020, but fans of the series won't have to wait that long for the next entry in that universe. Hobbs & Shaw is a spin-off focusing on the characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham and it arrives in August next year. A first official image has now been released.

The picture comes via Entertainment Weekly. In it, former federal Agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and mercenary-for-hire Owen Shaw (Statham) are facing down some adversaries in what looks like a warehouse, armed only with bits of wood. Check it out below:

This image follows some earlier behind-the-scenes shots that Johnson posted on Instagram. Hobbs & Shaw is directed by Deadpool 2's David Leitch and also stars Idris Elba as the movie's main villain, plus Mission Impossible: Fallout's Vanessa Kirby. It releases on August 2, 2019.

Prey's Free Typhon Hunter DLC Finds Childlike Fun In Its Multiplayer Hide-And-Seek

Prey's Free Typhon Hunter DLC Finds Childlike Fun In Its Multiplayer Hide-And-Seek

Hide-and-seek is so central to a child's sense of play that it's surprising how infrequently it's been explored by video games. A recent vogue for “asymmetrical multiplayer,” in which one player at a time faces several others, does channel some of the exhilarating imbalance of being It. But even titles such as Friday the 13th or Dead by Daylight tend to emphasize escape over taking cover and ultimately feel more like run-and-chase than the slower, calmer, more observational game that's forever fascinated kids. So it is a considerable pleasure to discover that Typhon Hunter, the new multiplayer expansion for the science-fiction immersive sim Prey by Arkane Studios, very closely resembles the traditional format of the familiar childhood pastime--with the slight difference that this hide-and-seek involves bloodthirsty aliens and takes place on a space station orbiting the moon.
