The announcement of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD may not have been the biggest reveal at the VGAs this weekend, but it was certainly one of the best
We've been desperate for a new "classic" Tony Hawk game for a while, and finally Activision is set to deliver — drawing on a generous helping of nostalgia in the process. In addition to the digital downloadable's collection of classic stages,..
That was a long and exciting night, wasn't it? If you joined us overnight for the VGAs, then it was nice to have your company. But if you were out doing social things or getting a good night's sleep, we've got you covered: included within is every trailer, every award and every shock from the big American awards ceremony. The big news was undoubtedly The Last Of Us, which was confirmed — to..
Good grief this is gory
During the VGAs pre-show last night, Square Enix released a new trailer for Hitman: Absolution. What did it show? Well, people getting shot in the face mainly. But in a stylish manner — if that's at all possible. Watch it for yourself after the break.
It's the beginning of the end for Cybertron
Activision's released a super-stylish CG trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron, and it shows the robotic home-world on the brink. Despite not showing any gameplay, the trailer's a brilliant mood piece. If developer High Moon Studios can match the vibe of the trailer, then it's going to have a real hit on its hands. We adored..
Amongst the hype for The Last Of Us and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Namco Bandai's Tekken Tag Tournament 2 announcement got a little bit lost
Which is a shame, because we're big Tekken fans and even we missed it. But now the storm has settled, it's time to get some hype. The fighting game's coming in 2012. No platforms were announced, but it's very safe to assume the game's coming to..
Some of you will have already seen the latest trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Rising -- now known as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
It leaked earlier in the evening after all. But if you haven't seen it yet, you're in luck. Now you can watch it officially. Beware though, there's some seriously crazy footage embedded within. With Platinum Games at the helm, Metal Gear's gone a little heavy metal in..
Leave it to BioShock Infinite to pull something amazing out of the bag
And who knew it would be so simple? The latest trailer for Irrational Games' magnus opus shows destruction in the city of Columbia, and sets it all to the relaxing sound of an acoustic country song. Seriously elegant stuff. Make sure you watch the trailer after the break.
Don't expect much commentary on Epic Games' latest project, Fornite
While we can categorically state that the game looks like a departure from Gears Of War, it's hard to really glean much else out of the debut trailer. There's zombies. And tower defence. (Maybe?) See for yourself after the jump.
As promised, Activision and Beenox has debuted the first footage of its upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man movie tie-in
The trailer's disappointingly light on gameplay, but it does show a few seconds of Spidey swinging around an enormous robotic scorpion thing. Catch the footage after the break.
Mass Effect 3 might have already enjoyed its big debut moment at last year's VGAs, but that's not stopped Bioware and EA from releasing a brand new gameplay trailer at this year's event
The trailer — which is derived entirely from gameplay footage — shows Shepard mounting an attack against seemingly impossible odds. It looks way more cinematic than Mass Effect has ever been before, but in a..
During the build-up to the VGAs, Geoff Keighley pondered how Sony's new PlayStation 3 exclusive, The Last Of Us, hadn't leaked
It's a question we're asking ourselves right now. Despite Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception launching to critical acclaim less than a month ago, Naughty Dog has confirmed that it is the developer behind the upcoming horror title. The debut trailer shows a young girl (Ellen..
When Tony Hawk confirmed on Twitter that he was heading (skating?) to this year's VGAs to announce a brand new game, we were secretly cautiously optimistic
We hoped that Activision would see the value in a classic Tony Hawk game after all these years, but after the disastrous Tony Hawk Ride, we weren't ready to place a bet on it. Thankfully,...
Phew, talk about quiet Saturday evenings
A brand new trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Rising has leaked online ahead of its expected debut during the VGAs. You could say, Metal Gear's back with a vengeance — or revengeance, huh? That's right, the ripper (Raiden) is back in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The game's being developed by Platinum Games in association with Kojima Productions. Are you..
We don't think we've ever been quite so curious about ants
Sony's mysterious marketing campaign for The Last Of Us — an upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive that the platform holder's been drip-feeding information about for the past couple of weeks — has brought out the budding researcher in much of the video games media. PlayStation Lifestyle's got the research bug (pun intended) quite bad. It's..
There are some big announcements set to take place at the VGAs this weekend: Sony's mysterious exclusive The Last Of Us, the reannouncement of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, and the unveiling of Epic Games' next big project
But while Spike's lined up plenty of show stoppers for the event, the awards ceremony will also play host to some lesser reveals. EA's confirmed that almost exactly a year after its..
The teaser website for upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last Of Us has updated
While the body of the page remains the same — ants and quarantine videos are still the focus — the big change is the inclusion of a wallpaper image listed as a "screenshot". It shows the foliage that has appeared on the background of the PlayStation Blog recently. A second image was discovered on..
Chalk up another exclusive reveal for this weekend's VGAs
Activision's announced that its set to debut an exclusive look at Beenox's upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man at the awards ceremony. It will tie in to the upcoming Sony Pictures movie of the same name, and depict the events directly after the film's conclusion. Most excitingly, the game will feature a free-roaming Spidey in Manhattan. If it's..
Epic Games is a name more commonly associated with Microsoft
While the studio has released games on PlayStation 3, its Gears Of War series remains the developer's bread and butter. But the US based outfit has promised that its next IP will be "radically different" from the hurl-inducing machoness of its previous endeavours, and an all together "departure" for the studio..
Tony Hawk is back
The pro-skater has teased on Twitter that he's set to announce a brand new game at this year's VGAs on Saturday. Said the Hawkster: Ill be announcing the upcoming release of something new on Saturday; the same day as the Spike Video Game Awards. Coincidence? I think not. Oh you tease Tony Hawk. The Tony Hawk series has been on the backburner ever since Robomodo worked on the..
The PlayStation Blog's got a mysterious new background, presumably in preparation for the announcement of upcoming PS3 exclusive The Last Of Us
The image shows little more than foliage and sunshine, but it looks like a real-time screenshot. Meanwhile, the unannounced game's teaser website has updated with a similar image of trees. Interestingly, both background images are entitled as..
If you thought you were going to have to wait until 2012 for another look at BioShock Infinite, how's this for a nice surprise? A hyperactive Geoff Keighley has teased -- with a single, secretive screenshot -- that Irrational Games' latest PS3 shooter is set to get a brand new trailer at this weekend's VGAs
The game will join The Last Of Us, Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Epic Games' next project —..
Cliff Bleszinski's popped up in a teaser trailer for the Spike VGA awards, confirming that Epic Games has a brand new "experience" to show off at the ceremony
The developer said: "2011 marks the 20th anniversary for Epic as a studio. And while weve been busy supporting Gears of War and Infinity Blade, we have something new in store for you. Its an entirely fresh and new experience being..
There are still surprises in the video game industry
When GameTrailers' Geoff Keighley promised an unbelievable PlayStation 3 exclusive would debut at this year's VGAs, speculation automatically pointed towards the heavily rumoured Sony Smash Bros. But a brand new teaser trailer has proved us all wrong. The Last Of Us is the name of Sony's next PlayStation 3 exclusive. The
If you think Sony's done with PS3 for the year, you're dead wrong
SCEE's gaffer Jim Ryan has teased that there's still plenty of surprises to come before the year's out, though the suit wouldn't be drawn on specifics. "Theres a bunch of stuff at the back end of the year which Im very excited by, and youll hear about it over the coming months. Itll give you plenty to write about,"..
All aboard the hype-train
Geoff Keighley's confirmed that next month's VGAs will play host to a PlayStation 3 exclusive debut "you won't believe". Of course this has set tongues wagging that the reveal will pertain to the heavily rumoured Title Fight — a Sony exclusive mascot mash-up featuring all of PlayStation's most memorable characters squashed into one mad-cap fighting game. We can..
There'll be some partying going on at developer Naughty Dog this evening
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has scooped up nine nominations for this year's VGAs. Amongst its accolades include nominations for Best Graphics, Best Action Adventure Game, Best Performance (both male and female) and Game Of The Year. Naughty Dog has also been nominated in the Best Studio category. Uncharted 3 will face up..
As promised, Game Informer magazine has released the first teaser image of Bioware's next big project
The screenshot of the game — which is due to be fully revealed at next month's Spike TV VGA awards — shows a collision in a dusty, desert like setting. It's certainly a world away from Dragon Age and Mass Effect, but without more details is ultimately meaningless.
