"Titanfall," the first game from Respawn Entertainment, made its hands-on debut at gamescom in Germany, and then on North American shores at Pax Prime. Inside the game, which is a first-person shooter, you can call down enormous mechs called "Titans," which provide the ultimate in vehicular combat. When one is assembled and ready for you, they plummet from low-earth orbit, and crash to ground wherever you have designated. As they drop, the operator (voiced by Abbie Heppe, formerly of G4 and X-Play) barks "Prepare for Titanfall." But no matter what you do, you just can't prepare yourself for this one until you get your hands on it.
Despite only having one map and one mode available at Pax, as the game isn't out until 2014, "Titanfall" had one of the longest lines at the show, full of gamers eager to get their hands on the latest and greatest from the original »

Kratos, anti-hero of the upcoming God of War: Ascension, has never been known to hold back. Hell, he decapitated an Olympian god with his bare hands and gutted a titan from the inside, spilling guts and gallons of blood without a nanosecond of hesitation.

Unfortunately, reaching that goal meant striking the nerve of many gamers and press members, but the uproar isn’t even stemming from the violence.
Just as a heads up, the next paragraph might have minor spoilers, so read at your own caution!
Now, it’s a no-brainer that Kratos will absolutely triumph over almost all his major opponents, given that God of War: Ascension is a prequel. In one of his encounters with a major female character though, Kratos »

Video games and violence has become, yet again, another hot button topic as of late, which has prompted some of the most ridiculous statements we've heard from politicians so far (including one made today). In the media, the game industry and gamers on the whole can't seem to catch a break, but during an interview with Fox News, Adam Sessler sets some people straight.
Though many remember Sessler for his goofy antics on X-Play, he's one of the more intelligent speakers when it comes to video games around (he's intelligent in general). He speaks with clarity, sound logic, and experience that's hard to discount...all which he brings to bear during this interview with Fox News. Fox News is somewhat notorious for blaming video games and gamers when bad things happen, so it's nice to watch Sessler talk so rationally and convincingly with them.
The man makes a lot of excellent points, »
