EA Closes Visceral Games; Moves Star Wars Title to New Team

5 hours ago

In a shocking and unfortunate turn of events, Electronic Arts has moved on from Visceral Games.  One of the more high profile games in the works was an intriguing Star Wars title that will now move to a different studio.  

Visceral Games was once known for developing video games that left players on the edge of their seats with titles like Dead Space and Battlefield Hardline.  However, that time has come to a close as Electronic Arts, their parent company, has announced that they will be officially closing down the once-promising studio.

Our Visceral studio will be ramping down and closing, and we’re in the midst of shifting as many of the team as possible to other projects and teams at EA.

This quote, by Executive Vice President of EA Patrick Soderlund, was taken from a blog post made on the company's website during an update on Visceral Games' most-anticipated project, »

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon Story Trailer Gets Super Dramatic

13 hours ago

A brand new trailer for Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon has arrived, putting the focus entirely on the story and teases a much darker, narrative heavy, storyline for gamers to play through.  Come inside to check it out!

The Pokemon games haven't always been known for their deep stories, and it's only been the last few generations that narrative began to take precedent over the monster catching gameplay.  Hell, most of the Pokemon game stories wrapped up well before you even thought about taking on the Elite Four, making the end game seem more busy work than anything else. 

Sun and Moon definitely didn't take that approach and weaved a decent story throughout the new region...But since the announcement of Ultra Sun and Moon I've been a bit worried that the story this time would be more of a re-tread and offering litte for me to come back »

After a big behind the scenes shake-up, and multiple teases from director Ron Howard, filming on next year's Star Wars spin-off has officially wrapped.  Howard announced it this morning, while also (finally) giving us an official title on the film.  

Quite a few people already guessed it, but today brings confirmation that the upcoming Han Solo centered Star Wars prequel will be called, Solo: A Star Wars Story.  Director Ron Howard announced the title today in a video he posted to Twitter, which also marks the end of filming:

A lot has been made of the behind the scenes struggles Solo has had, with original directors Lord and Miller getting the boot, and Ron Howard seemingly filming signifcantly more than intended (his few weeks of announced filming stretched to nearly 3 months).  Fortunately, »

16 October 2017 9:06 AM, PDT

Fan Jackets has recently launched a new line-up of superhero (and gaming/geek) themed hoodies and jackets for fans to enjoy.  Having had the chance to check out one of them, I figured this would be the perfect item to kick off our Geek Pick of the Week feature.  

Pop culture has blessed us with a wealth of cool toys, gadgets, and various other collectibles.  With geek culture no longer being in the shadows (or basement), the amount of cool things out there to bring into our homes has increased exponentially.  There’s always something neat on the horizon to show off your fandom pride, and our Item of the Week feature is going to highlight some of those that you may not know about, or are just too cool to not share.  

This week, Fan Jackets was kind enough to shoot us one of their new jacket/hoodies to try out. »

Doom on the Switch Gets a November Release Date

16 October 2017 8:19 AM, PDT

Last month, Nintendo fans were in for a surprise during the latest Nintendo Direct video, announcing some of Bethesda's latest games would be coming to the Switch.  Today, we get a release date for the new Doom game, along with a new video discussing the features.  

If you haven't jumped on the Nintendo Switch train yet, you definitely need to.  The 3rd-party support is certainly coming along, and the ability to take your game anywhere is a most welcome change.  When Bethesda announced they were bringing over just about all of their recent titles (Skyrim is launching on November 17th as well, with WolfensteinII at some point) would be coming to the system, I was overjoyed. 

Today brings us a new video that highlights some of the features gamers will encounter on the Switch version of Doom, as well as a release date.  You'll be able to battle the demon »

What a way to start off your week!  This morning gives us a brand new trailer for Marvel's Black Panther...and it's pretty damn good.  Seriously, the setting of Wakanda looks amazing, with some excellent sci-fi/fantasy world-building going on.  Everything about it looks wonderfully designed, and while the story seems like your typical comic book affair, I can't wait to dive into this world: 

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and »
