There's a scene in The Godfather that really resonates with me — not because I relate to it, but because I do not. It's when Michael has dinner with Don Sollozzo, and they begin speaking to one another in Sicilian. There are no subtitles, and the first time I watched it, I was irritated. "What are they saying?" "What are they planning?"
Minecraft comes to Vita on PSN this Tuesday, Sony just announced. It'll cost $20, but there are all sorts of cross-play/cross-buy features, as outlined on the PlayStation Blog. Wonder how Sony's execs feel about giving all that money to Microsoft?
Quite the feat, considering Diablo III's Season 1, where everyone started with fresh characters, only launched at the end of August on PC. But still, two guys already managed to climb to the top and get every single one of the achievements. 7880 points in total.
Fourteen episodes in, Sword Art Online II has finished its first arc; and if you were let down after the first anime's second half, let me assure you, Sword Art Online is back and in grand style.
There are more than a few popular horror game series out there—from classics like Resident Evil and Silent Hill to more modern hits like Dead Space and Amnesia. But for me, one series stands tall above those: Fatal Frame.
As a long-time fan of the Fatal Frame series, I can see the perceived appeal of having the Wii U's GamePad with its gyro sensor and dedicated screen acting as a proxy for the game's ghost-killing camera.

Fun fact: actor Michael Ironside, who voiced Tom Clancy stealth juggernaut Splinter Cell's main character, super spy murder dad Sam Fisher, nearly quit before the series even got off the ground.
Once upon a time licensed video games—ones based on movies, TV shows, or other popular series—were the domain of festering bargain bins and well-meaning grandparents who didn't know any better. Now Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

NBA 2K15 has gotten off to a shaky start. Since the game launched two days ago, players have been reporting ongoing problems with many different aspects of the game's performance—everything from the stability of its online multiplayer to losing progress and stuff acquired in single-player.
Console transitions are weird, sometimes sloppy things, and the latest—from PS3/Xbox 360 to PS4/Xbox One—is no different. The newest wrinkle? Games like Forza Horizon 2 and Diablo III are only offering DLC and major updates to current-gen versions. Last-gen, meanwhile, is stuck out in the cold.
OBJECTION! Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy comes to the 3DS eShop on December 9. It'll be $30. Unless it's a technical disaster or something—and we'll keep an eye out for that—it'll probably be worth your time. The first three Phoenix Wright games are killer.
Sure, the Fallout games have let players command a few cars before. But none of them are nearly as cool as the cars showcased during Wasteland Weekend, a festival dedicated to the post-apocalypse.
One morning late last year, not long after Guillaume, a developer at Ubisoft Montreal, had finished working on his newest game, he was told he'd be moving offices.
