Now that Wolverine is finally available --and pretty decent, as it turns out -- Activision has seen fit to release a new live-action commercial to promote the game. Admittedly, the commercial is actually kind of cool. It reminds us a bit of Neill Blomkamp's Halo 3 shorts, and we particularly dig it...

In an uncharacteristic move, Logan has snuck his way onto the European PSN Store today with nary a severed limb or exposed jugular to be seen. The hiariously violent, and surprisingly good, X-Men Origins: Wolverine demo arrives a day late, but late is better than never. It's still missing from the ...

Would someone please remind us that we're not supposed to be this excited about a licensed game? Because we're going to be straight with you, when ... well, when that last thing happens in this new trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, our fists pumped above our heads of their own accord. It was lik...

He's fast, strong, mean [Get a room! - Ed] ... and he has an adamantium skeleton complete with kick-ass adamantium claws.

"How come I can't ever just grab a guy and rip him in half?"
