If the idea of blood puke turns you off, I suggest you tap back immediately. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is not a game for children or the faint of heart - or stomach. While most reviewers will be coming in to this game a hardened fan of or having despised the first installment, we're coming in with fresh eyes. Here we've got a game where you control an ancient vampire in a modern-day (or even futuristic) world from a third-person perspective with enough cutscenes to choke an elephant.
Earlier this week we mentioned that the new Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes game would have a higher native resolution on the PS4 than the Xbox One. While the Xbox One is stuck with 720p native resolution at 60 fps, the PS4 will get 1080p resolution at 60 fps. The game will also be available on the Xbox 360 and PS3 at 720p using upscaling and 30 fps frame rates.

The development team at Edge of Reality have been revealed as the new commanders of the next Transformers video game with Activision keeping command over publishing rights. With Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, we’ve got a battle over Earth - with battles on our own, home planet, this time around, while it’s quite possible much of the rest of the game will center around rather similar gameplay to past Transformers releases. Here we’ve got a Story Campaign mode as well as co-op Escalation modes appearing in this game’s first data push.
This week we're taking a look at the bigger picture when it comes to reviews of the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. When we first published our (still in progress) review of Call of Duty: Ghosts earlier this year, it was shocking to see how big of a backlash was issued at the hands of gamers that'd purchased the title and disagreed with our (mostly positive) assessment on a level so great that we were accused of publishing a paid review (which, for the record, we never, ever do.) Here we're taking a peek at some of the biggest complaints users have with the game.
This afternoon the folks at Ubisoft have shared 13 minutes of gameplay from the game South Park: The Stick of Truth. While we've seen our fair share of comments on how this game would be stuck in developmental heck for extended periods of time, all signs now point toward a scheduled release, believe it or not. Today we get to meet the New Kid - aka you, the player of the game - as he meets the guys and starts his journey in this very episode-like game.
Supposing you're one of the massive number of gamers out there with an Xbox 360 that's also one of the (comparatively few) that doesn't work with Xbox Life Gold, today is another one of those weekends where it's your time to shine.
