Rock Band VR is coming, but only for the guitar

Rock Band VR is coming, but only for the guitar

I've spent a lot of time rocking out on a plastic guitar. I have no problem jamming with my friends, or even doing it in front of a few strangers at a party. But I've never considered the thought of getting up on a stage in front of thousands of screaming fans. Mostly because no matter how good you are on a plastic guitar, you'll never have thousands of fans packing a stadium for you. Well, at least not without a little bit of help.

Assassin’s Creed debut movie trailer features secrecy and fighting

Movies adapted from video games have yet to earn a decent reputation, but the latest franchise to try is Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed. The movie of the same name will be hitting theaters this fall on December 21st, at least giving Assassin's fans something as the game series takes a year off to focus on development. The first real trailer for the movie has just been released, revealing that star Michael Fassbender will be taking on the role of an assassin in a story that will be familiar to those who've played any of the games.

Nintendo insists on calling next mobile games “free to start”

Nintendo insists on calling next mobile games “free to start”

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, Shakespeare did write. But the same is true for undesirable things as well. Nintendo might be trying to distance itself from the ubiquitous but still criticized free-to-play games, but its still ambiguous "free-to-start" model might not fare any better. In fact, given the literal interpretation of the phrase and Nintendo's rather colorful reputation in today's gaming market, the label might do more harm than good in promoting Nintendo's upcoming mobile titles.

Nintendo drops 2DS price to $79

Yesterday we saw the first trailer for the newest Pokemon game, and got a good look at the starters that you'll be able to choose from.

Disney Infinity shuttered as Disney exits game publishing biz

If you've been wondering about the lack of major updates on Disney Infinity, or why Apple said it won't update Infinity 3.0 on the Apple TV, now we all know why. Disney has formerly announced that it will soon be shutting down the relatively successful Disney Infinity game, though not before one last batch of updates. This is in line with the company's decision to pull out from the game publishing business, falling back instead on licensing its properties to external game studios and publishers.

Bejeweled Stars tries to bring franchise back to glory

Bejeweled Stars tries to bring franchise back to glory

Before there were shiny sweets, there were shiny gems. Before King stumbled upon the winning formula that would eventually become Candy Crush Saga. PopCap Games was already crushing it with Bejeweled, flushing so many hours, some of them at work, down the drain. Now PopCap Games is trying to once again be the king (pun totally intended) of the "match-3" genre of games. This time, however, it is starting with mobile from the get go, releasing Bejeweled Stars on both iOS and Android, and on the same day even.

Ghostbusters: Dimension lets you bust some VR ghosts

Ghostbusters: Dimension lets you bust some VR ghosts

Virtual reality is probably the coolest thing to happen to PC gaming since broadband internet. However, it does have limitations in its current form. One of the biggest is the fact that depending on the headset, you need to stay in the same spot, or are at least confined to a small area. But imagine being able to roam free, and bust some ghosts while you're at it.

Pokemon Sun and Moon starters revealed: What you need to know

Pokemon Sun and Moon starters revealed: What you need to know

We've known about Pokemon Sun and Moon for quite some time now, but today marks the release of the first trailer, and our first look at the three starter Pokemon that you'll be able to choose from.

Virtual Boy gets an unofficial Google Cardboard reprise

Virtual Boy gets an unofficial Google Cardboard reprise

While the Nintendo 3DS will perhaps be forever remembered as the Nintendo 3D gaming platform, it wasn't the company's first foray into stereoscopic land. That distinction belongs to the Virtual Boy, whose short stint ended in catastrophe. While that torture equipment will remain a blot on Nintendo's history, the games it supposedly supported may yet find salvation in today's new age of virtual reality. That is mostly thanks to some heavy lifting done by Redditor The-King-of-Spain, who has kindly left instructions on how to play Virtual Boy games today via Google Cardboard or even a Samsung Gear VR.
