We're Secretly Stupidly Excited For Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

There's something a little big exciting about a game / toy hybrid isn't there? And Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is ridiculously ambitious in that regard

Activision's launch trailer sums the whole thing up, complete with irritating voice actors and try-hard punchlines. But even though the tone of the game doesn't particularly appeal to us, we think the idea of collectable action figures that..

We honestly couldn't be more excited for GoldenEye 007: Reloaded

Even a lousy hands-on hasn't managed to put us off. And this multiplayer trailer has turned our hype levels right back up to 'eleven' once again. Four-player split-screen is back, but it's the new 16-player multiplayer that we're hyped for. Guys, GoldenEye. Heck yes.

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded Pre-Order Bonuses Include Paintball Mode

Sledgehammer: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Not At War With Battlefield 3

Sledgehammer Games' gaffer -- and former Dead Space top-man -- Glen Schofield has dismissed any rivalry between Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3, insisting his competition lies with Modern Warfare 2

Activision Raises Its Hand With Amazing New Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Trailer

It's bizarre to think that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been flying under the radar this year

The latest entry in the most popular franchise in the world has lost some mind-share amongst hardcore gamers to Battlefield 3. But we've always felt like Modern Warfare 3's had the better showings up until now — the E3 demo involving scuba divers, boat chases and helicopter rides was a real..

Infinity Ward Drops A Good Five Minutes Of Modern Warfare 3's Spec Ops Survival Mode

Get it out of your system: we know the "hardcore" gamer can't stand Call Of Duty anymore

How dare mainstream video game players enjoy a video game, right? You good? Good. To be honest, we get the criticisms. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 does look agonisingly like more of the same. And that's a shame. But while the "new" Spec Ops Survival mode is clearly derived from Black Ops' zombie..

Danger ahead

Last year’s Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011 release was one of the more surprising PlayStation Move titles.

Activision Believes Call Of Duty: Elite Will Set A Precedent

Social networking attachments to popular games -- like Call Of Duty: Elite -- will be a "necessity" in the future, according to Activision's Jamie Berger

"We believe that a 24/7, year-round services strategy that broadens the game experience beyond just playing is going to be a necessity," he told MCV. "Right now, it's an option, but in three to five years, it won't be. To support..

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded on PlayStation 3

After naming GoldenEye 007: Reloaded as one of our most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of the year, we couldn't help but feel disappointed by our time with the game's demo

It felt early. Really early. Borderline broken in fact. After restarting our demo — because a bit of geometry was obtruding our entry into a vent — we decided to restart the game from the beginning. The Dam always was our..
