metalgearsolid5

Hello, My name is Michelle and my secret gaming shame (amongst many) is that I’ve never played a Metal Gear Game – even though I’ve owned them all at one point or another. The fine folks at Konami has unveiled the first footage of Metal Gear Solid Online. This online mode is part of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.  Take a gander!  The game is scheduled to hit the streets sometime next year.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Finale Launch Trailer!

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare1

It’s almost here folks. One of my favorite video game franchises. The Call of Duty series is the only game franchise that I actually beat every year – well, except the buggy mess known as Black Ops II. Kevin Spacey joins the COD Crew in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.  This time out we’re in a future devastated by a global attack. With the most powerful military force in the world, Atlas has effectively become a superpower for hire. Suit up in an advanced exoskeleton and join a highly-trained unit committed to restoring order. I miss killing Nazis…. Here is the final launch trailer, along with other footage from the game. It hits the streets Nov 4th! If you buy the digital version, you’ll get a free upgrade to the PS4 or Xbox One version – I wish all games did this.

10 Movie-Based Video Games That Got It Right

goldeneye box

Adaptations can be a straight-up crapshoot. Whether it’s a movie or television series based on a novel, a comic book based on a movie, a movie based on a video game—or any flipside of those examples—you’d be right to feel apprehensive going into the experience. Too often, we’re left wondering why (aside from money) screenwriters, directors, developers, and authors have trouble taking something of high (or at least decent) quality and making something in another medium of equal (or perhaps greater) quality. Too often these projects are rushed or simply muddy the message of the original piece of art, which leaves us as the audience feeling ripped off.

Disney Infinity Adds Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy!

Disney-Infinity-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-1

With Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy coming up fast, it only makes sense for the odd-duck collection of antiheroes to find their way into Disney’s all-genres, all-characters Infinity game. As you can tell from the art design, the Guardians make an easy transition into the Infinity style.

Check out the trailer for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Hereos (2.0 Edition) after the jump. The Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Playset for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition) – now that’s a succinct title (!) – will be available this fall.

Batman: Arkham Knight is Coming!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Batman Arkham series, but last year’s Arkham Origins was a big letdown. I thought I was done with the franchise but Rocksteady is returning to complete the Batman Arkham Trilogy. Since when does a 4th installment count as a “trilogy.” Guess Rocksteady is only counting the games that they actually created. I hope they keep the Batclaw. This time out, we’ll be able to drive the Batmobile, this makes me leap for joy and fill me with a sense of dread. The trailer looks freaking amazing and I guess I’ll be buying a PS4 when this comes.
