This is the real deal. A real LEGO movie. It's out next year.
While I'm impressed by the attention to detail in this re-creation of Star Wars' iconic last ditch torpedo-shot (as displayed at the Brickworld LEGO convention and photographed by Peter Mowry), I'm almost more impressed with how effectively it captures the mess of grey junk that covers the exterior of the Death Star.
MIT developed this program which allows users to interface with a 3D character that judges your body
MIT developed this program which allows users to interface with a 3D character that judges your body language—it's called MACH and it's meant to help you socialize better. Reminds me of project Milo a little bit—can you imagine having games where the characters can read your body language like this? It's probably coming, judging from the tech in the Kinect.
Like any Smash Bros. fan, I've taken in the news of a Wii U iteration with great joy. Look at the awesome new characters! No tripping? Hooray! It'll find a sweet spot between casual and hardcore play? Excellent! And yet, there's a tinge of melancholy about it all: the Wii U doesn't have a GameCube controller port.
It's been a full year since we last checked in with Gravity Ghost, developer Erin Robinson's 2D take on gravitation-influenced platforming and Mario Galaxy-like star-collecting. We caught up with Robinson again at E3 2013 to see how the game is shaping up. Short version: It's looking great.
I first watched Chris playing the enjoyable-looking (and hugely popular) Xbox 360 zombie survival game State of Decay, I've wanted to dive in and play it. But I've also wanted to wait for it to come to PC. Good news, then: The game is certainly going to arrive on Steam, though it's still not clear when.
Nintendo has been having a bit of a tough time communicating just what the Wii U is all about. In particular, the company still seems unable to clearly articulate just why the Wii U's gamepad—a combination game-controller and touchscreen—makes their system worth buying. Perhaps, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata suggests, it's time for some new ideas.
The biggest breakthrough for your running game in NCAA Football 14 may not be smarter line blocking, the return of a speed burst, or the introduction of real-time physics. It may be as simple as a new camera angle, available today in the game's demo. You should see it. You should play with it.
With the tens of thousands of people that descend on the Los Angeles Convention Center every year for the Electronic Entertainment Expo, it can be easy to miss seeing a few people. But this year was a little different. Cats roamed the showfloor and no one even seemed to notice. Let's look at the evidence, shall we?
Sony's successful, if counter-intuitive next-gen message for the PlayStation 4 at last week's E3 is that things won't change. No disc DRM changes. No new online checks for PS4. You might think Sony doesn't want gaming to change in the PS4 era. Oh, but they do.

Tom Francis' outstanding stealth/hacking/spy-comedy game hasn't just been a critical success. It's selling like hotcakes.
Are you Call of Duty: Black Ops II players ready for four all-new strategy-rich maps and an epic new chapter in the Zombies experience, complete with the debut of the Ray Gun Mark. II? Not yet? Well okay, you've got until July 2 — longer if you play on PC or PlayStation 3.
Will they? Won't they? Following the reveal of Riley, Call of Duty: Ghost's awesome dog, people couldn't help but wonder about Call of Duty Dog's fate—especially when it would be so easy, if not cliche, to off the dog in an attempt to make an emotional powerplay.
Of the announcements Nintendo made at E3, none were as meme-ready as the inclusion of The Villager from Animal Crossing in Smash Bros. With his terrifying, lifeless eyes, the internet got to work saying exactly what we were all thinking.
This lovely illustration of Joel and Ellie from The Last of Us by the one and only Olly Moss. Am I the only one who gets freaked out and moves the pallet reeeeally slowly whenever Ellie's on it? No? Cool, glad it's not just me.
It's the same old story with a totally South Park twist. The elves versus the humans. Stan and Kyle versus Cartman.
Logan's Run fans have been clamoring for a remake of the 1976 film adaptation of William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson's classic tale of dystopian ageist science fiction for decades. According to an exclusive report from Deadline Hollywood, Ken Levine's next big writing gig after BioShock Infinite is penning the latest script for the project.
Today, one of the year's most hotly anticipated video game releases was delayed with no word when it will come out. Frustrated gamers spewed anger over social media, some even vowing to cancel their preorders. This afternoon after a whole nine hours, the world finally got the NCAA Football 14 Demo.
I know that you can't pay full price, it ain't no lie. I wanna see you get these deals baby buy buy buy, BUY BUY.
