"Home consoles have been edging closer and closer to evolving their software libraries to include more non-traditional and PC-oriented titles over the past two years. The landscape is rapidly changing due to the lowered costs of entry-level design tools, as well as the architecture that allows for games to grow and expand into different categories of the interactive medium. Well, one game that’s been making waves and keeping somewhat under the media’s radar is ROBLOX. The game-creation softwar..."

With 2014 drawing to a close I reflect back at the year’s best racing games for the Nintendo Wii U. Now because there wasn’t a massive amount of racing games released this year for the Wii U (to say the least) I’ve only chosen my top three. So without further ado, here is the top three racing games for the Nintendo Wii U for 2014 in my opinion.

The latest trailer is a brief overview of what to expect in The Crew’s The South region.

The short trailer from Ubisoft tells of the heat, mud, bugs, hurricanes, swamps, alligators, and sharks that occupy The South region (okay not all of these things are in the game admittedly).

Pulling USA is the latest truck pulling and tractor pulling simulation game for iOS and Android mobile devices.

There’s over 30 trucks and tractors in total which span 10 vehicle classes. Expect to upgrade your vehicle’s engine, supercharger/turbocharger, fuel system and more at the garage.

The Crew which released less than a month ago is already half price or less (in the case of the Xbox 360 version) on Amazon.co.uk.

The deal comes just in time for Christmas, and for those sitting on the fence about the game now is a good time to take the plunge at a much reduced cost.

"Do you know what’s worse than corrupt journalists? 960 x 1080 interlaced resolution. You know what’s worse than $17 trillion dollars worth of debt? 1080i instead of 1080p output. You know what’s worse than our crumbling society under the rising tide of Cultural Marxists, economic collapse, a failing jobs market and legislation to further take away the freedoms and rights of anonymity and speech online? KillZone: Shadow Fall’s 1080i resolution in the multiplayer."

Yup. Here are some of the deals this holiday season:
(Be warned, because some of them end in 1-2 days from now, I think more will come too.)

  • Dark Souls II ($14.79)
  • Civilization: Beyond Earth ($30.00)
  • Total War: Rome II ($14.98)
  • Sniper Elite III ($24.99)
  • State of Decay ($4.99)
  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes ($13.39)
  • Euro Track Simulator 2 ($3.74)

"August 2014 saw indie developer Carlos Coronado launch his first-person puzzle title, MIND: Path to Thalamus on Steam. The title launched without any support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD), although the developer did assure that it would be coming later on. There’s still no specific date attached to the videogame’s VR integration, but the developer has at least recently assured that it will be arriving in the ‘near future’."

With the next generation of wrestling games available for the world, how does WWE 2K15 stand up to its predicessors as 2K Games' second title in the franchise?

"I was taken back slightly when I heard that Flyhunter Origins, the debut game from new independent game studio Steel Wool Games, was created by a team of animators who have worked on such marvels as Disney•Pixar’s, “Brave,” “The Incredibles,” Toy Story, Monsters University, Ratatouille, and many others. So to think of that kind of animation translated over into a game I was all but excited to see what they could come up with. Though Flyhunter is aimed at a younger audience, it’s also a great ..."

"Kevin Dent is a business developer and entertainment industry professional who has some notable ties to his name. Dent was involved with companies like PlayHaven, Hands-On Entertainment, and was the COO of P4RC Inc., – a company that once had Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter on as the director for a short time. Dent was also a chair person for the IGDA a few years back. It’s safe to say that Kevin Dent has some weight in the games industry. So why is a writer from Giant Bomb ..."

Tetris has been around since 1984 and was the most popular game on Nintendo's Game Boy platform which was released in 1989. Since then, it has appeared on many other platforms and is considered one of the greatest video games of all time. In 2006, Nintendo released the now hard to come by Tetris DS which allowed up to ten players to compete locally or online. Since the DS online functionality has been disabled, that game has lost a majority of its charm. Ubisoft has taken the baton and ha...

"Gamers made their voices known through the digital ether known as the internet. They rallied together under the umbrella of free speech and the battle cry of unfettered creative expression. The result? One of the most controversial decisions that Valve has had to make in recent times was overturned."

"“If you know your enemies and know yourself,” Sun Tzu said, “you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles.” That his words ring as true today as they did more than two millennia ago in the prolific Art of War might come as no surprise to the man himself—the victor of as many alleged battles. Whether there ever was a real Sun Tzu is up to history to decide, but it cannot be said his influence knew the boundaries of battlefields real and virtual. We know as much that gaming has grown and matu..."
