Ever since Telltale Games announced they would be making a single player adventure game out of Minecraft, we've wondered just exactly what that would look like.

Well, they gave a little peek at that Oct. 1 with the first trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode.

It doesn't give a whole lot of information, but given what we know about Telltale games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, we can pretty much extrapolate from there how it would play.

Alongside news that Nintendo is working on mobile games now, President Saruto Iwata announced today that the company is working on its next generation console, codenamed "NX."  From the press release:

Nintendo has decided to deploy its video game business on smart devices but it is not because we have lost passion or vision for the business of dedicated video game systems. On the contrary, now that we have decided how we will make use of smart devices, we have come to hold an even stronger passion and vision for the dedicated video game system business than ever before. Nintendo has made this decision because we have concluded that the approach of making use of smart devices is a rational way for us to encourage even more people around the world to recognize the great value of the wonderful game software available on our dedicated game systems.

As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business, let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand-new concept under the development codename “NX.” It is too early to elaborate on the details of this project, but we hope to share more information with you next year.


It's a big day on the Nintendo hype train, friends.

My god. A beautifully grotesque piece of design, indeed. Check this bad boy out in virtual action.

For $499 you'll get an Xbox One, Titanfall (digital download), and one month of Gold. Worth it?

This "Life is Better With a Titan" trailer for Titanfall sure makes life with a Titan look costly. How are you enjoying "the CoD killer"? Were you affected by last night's Xbox Live outage?

UPDATE: Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has confirmed that this is a timed exclusive for Xbox, and that the game will come out for other platforms, but he doesn't know when: "Yes, the deal has a duration. I didn't buy it. I don't own the franchise." -Eurogamer


Xbox re-released the Rise of the Tomb Raider announcement trailer we saw at E3, only with a minor change: the end of the video states the game will be an Xbox exclusive for Holiday 2015.

The game's official tumblr posted this update:

Dear Tomb Raider Community,

As you may have seen, we've just announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider, coming Holiday 2015, is exclusively on Xbox. We consider all of you to be the lifeblood of Tomb Raider and the work we do at Crystal. I'd like to give you some insight into this decision, and why we feel this is the very best thing for the Tomb Raider sequel we're creating at the studio.

Tomb Raider in 2013 was a success due in large part to your continued support. Our goal has always been to deliver something truly special with Rise of the Tomb Raider. Today's announcement with Microsoft is one step to help us put Tomb Raider on top of action adventure gaming. Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past - we believe this will be a step to really forging the Tomb Raider brand as one of the biggest in gaming, with the help, belief and backing of a major partner like Microsoft.

This doesn't mean that we're walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4.

We know that there are probably many more questions and concerns. Please do send them to us, and we'll answer to the best of our ability. Meanwhile we're going all out to try and make something truly special - the most ambitious Tomb Raider game ever built.

Thanks,

Darrell Gallagher
Crystal Dynamics Head of Studios
It's unclear how long this exclusivity will last, but it seems like Microsoft needed a game to compete with Uncharted 4.

EVO's 2015 game tournament came to a stunning conclusion July 19 in Las Vegas as the final match between Street Fighter IV players Momochi and Gamerbee. Polygon reports that a fighting stick malfunction almost brought the competition to a grinding halt.

Momochi, facing Gamerbee in the grand final of EVO 2015's Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament got what must be every fighter's worst nightmare: a disconnection notice just as the second round began, with Momochi leading 1-0.

EVO 2015 rules stipulate that if an equipment failure occurs while a game is in progress, the fighter with the malfunction must forfeit that round.



The crowd goes absolutely insane as the controller disconnect message comes up on the screen and with the Momochi having to forfeit the round, bringing the match 1-1, the final bout is extremely tense to watch.

In the end, Momochi pulls out an impressive win and everyone can stop holding their breath.
