Those who are waiting to get their hands on the Guardians of Galaxy, Deadpool, the Doctor Strange, and the Walking Dead tables, you only have to wait one more week!,

These new tables won't cost you that much, only$2.99/€2,99/£2.49 through the Wii U eShop.

With a November release inching ever closer, we finally learn who will be developing the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

The fifth episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two from Telltale Games is finally coming next week. As such TTG has released a brand new trailer covering all past episodes.

"A third of PS4 owners are actually converted fanboys. They gave up their Xbox 360s, abandoned their Wiis and I might even imagine a few members of the Glorious PC Master Race may have traded their SLI GPUs and multi-monitor setups to get a taste of the black and blue brand from Sony. Of course, that’s according to a new report from a Nielson Media Research survey."

Annual releases are coming more and more popular and in this article, Shave will explore his thoughts on them.

Call of Duty set a kind of benchmark when it became obvious that we'd be getting an annual release of the title. They were perhaps the first major title to do it and others have followed, but is this a good thing or a bad thing?

It's good for the Developers and Publishers, that's for damn sure. The Publishers who are responsible for advertising and distribution rake in the mone...

With the new six minute long gameplay of Bloodborne released by Sony, what can we depict from what we saw? With a full analysis of the gameplay, have a look and see what Dom thinks about the PS4 exclusive mechanics.

The Hauppage HDPVR Rocket promises to bring the full quality of game capture along with an easily transportable device. With additional controls for sound and software to allow livestreaming, is the Rocket the best Hauppage has to offer?

Watch Dogs has gotten a lot of great press and a lot of praise from reviewers and the game industry. Does this mean everyone should run out and buy the game? Is this a better sandbox game than GTA V or Saints Row IV? Will Watch Dogs change open world games forever?

"In the videos ‘Trevor’ is desperately trying to dispose of man’s body, while attempting to enlist the help of the locals. It is entertaining stuff, especially the reactions of some of the people he comes in contact with."

"One of the weirdest games released for PlayStation consoles this month was Hohokum, an artful little gem from Honeyslug and Sony’s Santa Monica studio. The game has a non-linear design that has caused some gamers frustrations while it’s opened up a door for a new way to enjoy the zen-game genre by attempting to actually speed run through the game. That’s right, someone has done a speed run of Hohokum. It’s like drinking a lot of coffee and attempting to speed meditate as a shaolin monk."

"Clapfoot Studios really went out of the way and surprised me with their upcoming third-person shooter titled, Fortified. It’s not only a shooter game but it’s also a tower-defense game, and it sees players having to build up their fortifications to stop an advancing robot army from outer space. If it sounds like the makings of a 1950s B-movie, well that’s the general theme that the developers were going for."

"Tales of Xillia 2 has finally launched in North America. That means that there's full English voice-overs and English text. This also means that you get to see the game from start to finish, in its entirety, with someone else helming the controls and dictating the on-screen action. With that said, a new gameplay walkthrough has emerged for the recent English release of Tales of Xillia 2 for the PS3. You can watch the game from start to finish, if you're into that sort of thing."

Today, Sakurai announced that Lord Ghirahim from the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be an assist trophy for Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS. This announcement is likely to celebrate the launch of Hyrule Warriors in Japan last week. I was not expecting Lord Ghirahim to be a playable character, in fact, I was betting that he would appear as assist trophy, so this is welcome news (and expected).

"Only in the indie space will you find a game completely off the cuff like Scott Cawthon’s Five Nights at Freddy’s. What makes the game so different and unique? Well, maybe because players are put into the role of a rather shifty night manager of a scummy kid’s pizza parlor place where the main attraction is a stage show featuring animatronic animals. Of course, this all sounds kind of weird and far-fetched as a game… until you realize that as a night manager of the pizza parlor, the animatron..."

Another week, another edition of WTF Wednesdays covering any type of gaming related content that will make you go wtf? This week's topic, Infamous and condoms.

After successfully joining Square Enix's independent platform called The Collective, Kitfox Games has announced that they will be taking the next step in bringing their game to a wide audience by joining Kickstarter.

GG3 writes: "The EMP Museum in Seattle will open an exhibition on games on November 8 of this year, titled Indie Game Revolution. It will record the history of the independent movement, as well as its impact and growing momentum. "

"irst 4 Figures has added a new figurine to its growing Nintendo line-up. Revealed by the company yesterday, Sword Kirby is the first in a colourful, dreamy collection of the Kirby series. Standing at just 16 inches, the pink puffball will set you back a chunk of hard-earned coins, priced at $239.99 (roughly £144 or €180). But because he’s so adorable in his green and yellow hat and LED sword, you’ll soon forgive his makers for setting such a meaty price.

Made from polystone resin, the same..."

"There are many official Super Smash Bros screenshots, as provided by the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai in his daily Miiverse posts, but there are also a few screens which have unofficially leaked. According to a post on the Nsider Forums, these screenshots apparently reveal the entire character roster for the latest Smash Bros instalment on Wii U and 3DS.

While we love a good juicy rumour here, the screens should be taken with a large pinch of salt, and thrown over the shoulder in good ..."

"Zanrai Interactive has recently announced that their four-player, competitive or cooperative action-arcade game with bullet-hell elements has landed on Steam’s Greenlight community service. The name of the game? Stardust Vanguards. The developers recently sent over a press notice explaining what the game is about and how it’s played, and after watching the trailer it’s easy to see how Stardust Vanguards could easily become one of those snowballing sleeper hits due to its unique premise and pr..."

"Michael Condrey, the Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games and developer behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, says that the highly anticipated game won’t be coming to Wii U. Condrey says it was Activision’s decision and that the team are concentrating on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC versions of the game. Condrey also confirmed that Treyarch won’t be making a version."
