Homefront: The Revolution trailer introduces The Man With the Finger Gun

Don't point that thing at me! Homefront: The Revolution is just over a week away, and that means it's time to have a look at the official story trailer, which publisher Deep Silver says contains “the first details of Homefront: The Revolution's gripping story.” But that's not quite right, is it?

Report says Lionhead deals fell through because Microsoft refused to sell Fable

Multiple, multi-million-dollar offers were reportedly made. Lionhead Studios is dead and buried, shuttered by Microsoft despite—in the words of Microsoft—having “delighted millions of fans with the Fable series over the past decade.” Now it's come to light, by way of a Kotaku report, that the studio almost dodged the bullet. But while Microsoft was clearly willing to let Lionhead go,...

New Doom video showcases “Guns, Demons, and Speed”

There's more to Doom than running and gunning, although I'm not entirely sure what. Bethesda's new Doom video is entitled “Guns, Demon, Speed,” which is interesting because the point, according to the description on YouTube, is to illustrate that “there's more to Doom than just running and gunning.” Like punching, I guess? Yes—lots and lots of punching. “Doom is about guns,...

Civilization 6 announced, coming this year

Aspire to greatness. https://youtu.be/BZqHaBkgYTo Sid Meiers' Civilization 6 has erupted out of nowhere with an aspirational trailer voiced by everyone's favourite short-lived northerner.

Battlefield 1 trailer recreated in GTA 5

Or is it the Battlefield 5 trailer recreated in GTA? https://youtu.be/ybtxCHTQQPw Recreating trailers in unrelated videogames is very much in vogue, but few pull it off with such accuracy (or more amusing substitutions) than J57F. Battlefield 1looks good in GTA 5. Admittedly, a biplane flying into a tower doesn't have the same impact when the building shrugs it off like a bug....

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will release in 2017

World of Warcraft designer discusses the difficulty of dealing with feedback

Blizzard is listening, but there an awful lot of people talking at the same time. There's an interesting thread in the World of Warcraft forums, which begins with a complaint about the “absurd gold price on new items” in the game. The poster expresses concern about in-game price hikes, which he says pushes them to a point “that a fraction...
