Well folks, we've been here twice before -- it's that very special time of year when the Writers Guild of America announces nominations in the category of "Videogame Writing." As has been the standard for the past two years, the list of games is a dubious mix. We'd certainly point to Naughty Dog's...

Red Faction: Guerrilla Arriving approximately seven months late to the party, I didn't play RFG until earlier this month when I desperately cobbled together 2009's game releases for a massive pre-GOTY playstravaganza. That marathon came to a long pause while I smashed through the many structures...

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...

One thousand three hundred and fifty five people: murdered. Okay, some of them were unfeeling killer robots, but even after eliminating every piece of scrap metal from the virtual cemetery, you're left with a considerable number of motionless bodies by the end of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Or at lea...

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...

It appears the demo for X-Men Origins: Wolverine is available now on Xbox 360. Go experience the thrills of watching Wolverine cut bad guys into meaty chunks and shove them head-first into ... well, you'll see. Don't be fooled, gamer parents out there: Activision may have the PG-13 rated movie's ti...

We remind you to repeat a special mantra as you watch yet another behind-the-scenes video from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That mantra is very simple: It's only a licensed game. Just say it over and over again. It's only a licensed game. It's only a licensed game. It won't be any good. Keep repeatin...

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...

Apparently realizing it's become de rigeur to claim that your superhero game is practically perfect in every way, the developers at Raven Software seem pretty confident in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The latest behind-the-scenes video goes a step further than just claiming that the title will be the...

When we first got our hands on X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the fiercest of Charles Xavier's mutant do-gooders was carving his way through South America in a game that played like a mix of God of War and Uncharted. And we liked it. We've now played a near final version -- once again starting out in...
