  • Call of Duty: World at War gameplay footage Wait, what? A first-person shooter.. about World War II? That’s.. that’s incredible! Why has no one done this before? I’m still on the fence with this one. On one hand, Infinity Ward set the bar really high with Call of Duty 4, and I’m far beyond sick of WWII games. On the other, holy crap look at that flame thrower. Read More

  • Video: Guitar Hero World Tour We’ve all been wondering what GH4 aka Guitar Hero World Tour would be like with drums, vocals, etc. and now we have video of it in action. This is huge.
