You'll certainly not escape these toys on next-gen consoles

Skylanders SWAP Force Confirmed for PS4 and Xbox One

As probably everyone expected, Activision officially confirmed today that Skylanders SWAP Force is in development for the next-gen consoles (namely the PS4 and Xbox One). This is in addition to the already announced versions for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, 3DS, and Wii U. Get ready to hide the wallet from the kids if you own pretty much any relatively modern console whatsoever.

That headline tickles the gag reflex, doesn't it?

Microsoft Outlines Xbox One's Digital Rights

It was just this morning we posted a giant editorial on the next generation of gaming and where things are headed. In a way, just the simple fact that I had to write that headline is a bit infuriating. The fact that games are being treated as software licenses, they are not protected under the first sale doctrine of the United States law, is sometimes hard to comprehend - but such is the legal mumbo jumbo that is US Law.

Grab your friend that don't own the game and play it anyway!

Blizzard Adds "Spawning" Feature to Starcraft II

Being able to access and play a free version of Starcraft II is quite the gift from Blizzard to give, but what if you wanted to share your gaming experiences with a friend as well. Entering today is a thing called, “Spawning”; a brand new feature that essentially brings free co-op options to those who don’t own the full game themselves.

Hellraid E3 2013 Trailer Features First Person Hacking and Slashing

Hellraid may seem strangely familiar to you. If you think the first person co-op slasher looks a lot like Dead Island gussied up in a Gothic skin, you'd be right. Techland made both the modern day tropical island zombie title and this dark fantasy nightmare. I think it's safe to assume these games will be very similar. With a couple of tweaks that might be a good thing. Then again, it might not. Techland did just pump out Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, which was excellent, whereas Dead Island: Riptide lacked the fun factor of the original. I'm cautiously optimistic.

Sony continues to gather support

Warframe Coming to PS4 - Will be Free-to-Play

The corner continues to grow for Sony and the Playstation 4 as more and more developers are throwing their hats in the ring for support of the next generation console. The latest to do so is developer Digital Extremes, a company who has 20 years of success with such titles under their belt as Unreal, Dark Sector, and The Darkness II. They also released a very cool free-to-play game recently for the PC called Warframe. a cooperative action/rpg hybrid, that plays like a dream, will be making it's way to the Playstation 4. Perhaps the best news is that it will be a launch title for the console.

Developer Terry Welsh provides a little insight into what goes into his game

Retrobooser Gameplay Video with Developer Commentary

Late last year we sat down with Terry Welsh, the one man development team of Really Slick, to talk about his retro cave shooter, Retrobooster. The game places you in the shoes of a pilot (or pilots, if playing cooperatively) who's the last best hop to fight off the horde of invading aliens and save the galaxy. This isn't your typical twin-stick shooter, though, as Terry's worked hard to get the physics behind your space flight just right. That means Newton's First Law of Motion is in full effect as you'll be having to balance your thrust and propulsion to avoid running into everything. He's the right man for the job, too, as he once worked at NASA constructing flight simulators.

In this editorial we look at Sony and Microsoft and how they handled their consoles up until this point along with their announcements on what's next. Could one company be learning from the other?
