This Abandoned Mall Looks Just Like the One from The Last of Us

Out of business

Spoilers: you spend a good chunk of The Last of Us: Left Behind in an abandoned mall. Here's the really, eerie bit, though: the derelict shopping centre appears to exist in real life.

What if Hideo Kojima Was the Star of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes?

War changes

The best thing about games releasing on the PC is that modders instantly get to work tinkering with the source code.

Clicker along

While much praise is lavished over the gameplay and story of Naughty Dog's survival horror opus The Last of Us, comparatively little is said about its soundtrack.

Carry on playing

Don’t take your temperature after watching this bizarre Belgian commercial for the PlayStation 4 and Vita, as there may be some inaccuracies in the results that you record.
