No, really. You get a troll. Specifically, a 12.5" tall "Prismere Troll" statuette designed by McFarlane Toys, with the purchase of two of the newly announced Special Editions of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
In all, there are three levels of specialness. For $80, you get a parchment map, a sev...

Syndicate's protagonist won't be helping Granny cross the street or rescuing any kittens stuck in trees -- well, okay, maybe there's some kind of holo-tree mission, we don't know. The point is that you won't be playing the classic hero in EA's reboot. He's a bad dude there to do bad things.

Electronic Arts is hosting a gaming press event in Las Vegas this week, and was promising the reveal of "at least one completely new title" and it looks like that title is ... Shank 2?
In EA's liveblog, when asked "Is this the 'new ip' ?," EA's Andy Katkin replied, "You got it Mike." We're as c...

The latest screens from Shadows of the Damned include things we've come to expect (by which we mean total horrors) -- as well as something we didn't. The screen above shows a stylized, side-scrolling 2D segment that kind of looks like And Yet It Moves moved to Hell.

Warning: the latest screens from Grasshopper Manufacture's Hellacious shooter Shadows of the Damned feature some ... disturbing imagery. We see a hanging dead body, a giant tattooed monster about to get shot in his demonic beanbag, and -- is that a cage full of eyeballs? The guy seen here, who ap...

In this new Star Wars: The Old Republic trailer, we meet the Sith Inquisitor class. In so doing, we learned something new about the Star Wars universe: in this setting, the word "inquisition" is actually a synonym for "shooting lightning out of your hands."

Pre-orders of Sh...

Each pack contains three follower items, new weapons, and arm...

Though the trailer for Vanguard's twin stick shooter Gatling Gears is too brief to contain much visual meat, there's one announcement that makes it worth viewing. As revealed in the video (posted just after the jump!), the game's due out on XBLA May 11, and PSN May 18.
