Why The Wii U Is the Best Current Gen Console

Nintendoes what Microsoft and Sony don't

The next generation of video game consoles is here. The latest and greatest technological offerings from Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo are available on store shelves everywhere. The Xbox One and the Playstation 4 are pushing the envelope of sizzling graphics and jawdropping visuals. The Wii U takes the innovations of its predecessor and takes them a step farther with HD graphics and the GamePad controller. So which system is a gamer to choose? I believe a strong argument can be made for Nintendo’s Wii U as the best choice at this time.

LittleBigPlanet 3 Pre-Order Bonuses and Release Date

Adding new characters and creation tools to LittleBigPlanet 3 is exactly what the franchise needed to stay fresh. When we saw the gameplay demo at Sony's E3 conference we couldn't help but smile. Previously thought to be exclusive to the PS4, we've recently learned that LittleBigPlanet 3 will also release for PS3 at the same time, on November 18, 2014.

The aliens are so polite to run on the tracks like that.

Defense Grid 2: Fixed Path Trailer

Looks like we're getting some advanced tactics from the minds down at Defense Grid 2. This week's new technique: not building your fancy laser towers directly in the path of the encroaching enemy. Here to help narrate these developments is General Fletcher, the man who elected to have his conscious eternally fixed in a giant planet-sized defense system with enough firepower to stop an alien invasion. I'm just waiting for him to slip up and read a "1" in stead of a "0" and accidentally initiate the Annihilate All Mankind Protocol. He is British, though, so he'd waste everybody very politely.

Six Player Raids in Destiny Friend Only; Biggest Beta of the Generation

If you owned a console at all this weekend, chances are you were glued to your TV while putting caps in Fallen. Destiny's beta ran through the weekend on Sony and Microsoft platforms, and while tons of people were tromping around Old Russia, one of the game's linchpins was not included. Six-player raids have been a subject of both interest and concern since their announcement, but Bungie wants to lay fears to rest.

Rob Zombie Made An Assassins Creed Unity Cartoon

Has it been long enough since your last Western Civ class that you've forgotten the nature of the French Revolution? Well, Assassin's Creed Unity is due out October 28th, and ignorance breeds a whole lot of sloppy assassins. Instead of breaking into a chateau with no idea why you need to stab the wigged fat guy eating all those chicken legs, why don't we take a look back to see what this particular conflict was all about.

Free to Play Shooter Firefall Launches Today

Our first article for Firefall was written in September of 2010 - almost a full four years ago. At that point the game had already been well into development and we were seeing the fruits of the team's labor. Now the game is ready to finally be called "done," at least terms of being an officially released product. The game launches today on PC and is available on Steam and from the official website.

Farming Simulator 15 Launches in October

Do you feel the unrelenting urge to harvest asparagus? Are you gripped with the desires to plant, and water, corn? Have you ever shot out of bed in the middle of the night, covered in sweat, your palms aching with the carnal desire to extract carrots straight from the earth with your bare hands? Do you feel a strong emotional attachment (either positive or negative!) about Horsch brand farming vehicles?
