A wild man in black and white, fighting for what's right, Sting was to the WCW what guys like Brett Heart were to the WWE. How many imaginary matches have friends young and not so young pitted their WCW legend against a friend's WWE Superstar in an imaginary clash of the titans, back and forth across the ring, the highs, the lows! The two counts! Well the time has come wrestling fans. With WWE 2K15.

Chances are, you spend some time with some device or another plugged into your ear. Some of us (me included) don't pay much attention to what that is, just so long as we can hear stuff. I got the chance to spend some time with a trio of gaming headsets by ASTRO that completely changed my opinion on that front. I found out that, when done properly, especially for the serious multiplayer gamer, the right set of headphones can really add a level of depth and immersion I've been missing out on all this time.
Nearly 6 years after Sacred 2 blasted onto the scene, the third chapter in this action based RPG series is ready to debut later this summer!

You'll get access to a newly announced class that you won't be able to access anywhere else right at release. Read on to find out more!

There are few better excuses to run around a Steampunk Victorian England than a plague of monsters, seriously, just try and think of one. Ok, fine, 'political intrigue/ assassination' isn't bad, but I don't think it tops wolfmen (and whatever creatures we haven't seen yet). This is the world of The Order:1886, and alternate earth where monsters slink in the dark places, King Arthur has returned, and an order of superpowered knights (aided by an explosion of technical advancement) stand to stem the tide. Basically it goes like this 'monsters, monster, steampunk, monsters monsters, really cool weapons'. Heard enough?

Cops and Robbers anybody? Oh, come now, I know you remember that feeling of running free, murdering your friends in an endless and (mostly) harmless series of battles. No, I'm not talking about your last round of COD, I'm talking that earliest form of multiplayer... childhood. Its probably why these FPS games are so enticing really... the kids grew up with the ability to reproduce that feeling into a digital realm, and so, we have Battlefield: Hardline. The ultimate good guys vs bad guys, its time do 'draw the line'.... 'hard'.

Do you like causing chaos and havok amongst pirates and corrupt military organizations? I know you do! After an allstar showing with Far Cry 3, Ubisoft have brought us another 'dude against some evil regime in a small country' bonanza that promises to be full of weapons, exotic animals, and lots of untamed wilderness. Easily one of the heavy weights when it comes to dollars vs content, Far Cry has come again.
It's been a long couple of years since the release of UFC Undisputed 3. For UFC fans, this has basically been an eternity. In the last two years, the Flyweight division was announced, as was women's bantamweight. These are two of the many new things you'll see in EA's first UFC title. Was it worth the wait? Let's check it out.
It was probably the most anticipated game of E3 2012, and then the most anticipated game of E3 2013. Finally, Watch Dogs is out for pretty well every major console (WiiU coming soon) and promises to be one of the most tense, nail biting thrill ride games in years, stepping you in the shoes of an anti-hero hacker. But was it worth the wait? Click below and find out for yourself.

A game about a small world of Miis who actually have personality. In fact, that personality is the driving force behind their Tomodachi Life. The sort of thing Animal Crossing fans will understand immediately, Tomodachi Life pits you against the daily needs of your own personal island and the Miis that inhabit it, and manages to win your heart in the process.

In the wake E3, as gamers we got a big dose of information on our favorite things. I made a list in favor of the Xbox One, now its the PS4's turn. With no less interesting content, and perhaps more, depending on your taste, Sony and the PlayStation 4 aren't lacking for good reasons to head in their direction for your console needs. Have a look.

Stunned by the sheer amount of content and information you've been bombarded by based on this years E3? I don't blame you, I'm there too, but not to worry folks, I'm a professional!

If you've been wondering what console to go with, click on the following for 10 very good reasons why you might want to choose the Xbox One.

A bevvy of beauties that missed the Big Stage, there have been so many things to be excited about that some just don't get the attention they deserve. It's time to fix that. Many standout titles, intreguing games, and subtle hints of things to come have been shown since this whole thing kicked off, and it's very easy for worth games to get lost in the shuffle. So, here we have a collection of E3 2014s Best of Games not in the press conferences (or that we simply havent been able to talk about yet).
It might just be one of the best things the Social Media and Youtube age have brought to us. Thanks to live streaming tools like Twitch, gamers can sit and watch other gamers play for hours on end to help them decide upon whether or not to buy the games themselves. Developers and Publishers have listened, and they now put out these longer videos too, either by themselves or through the help of other gaming websites.
What are some of these good reveals thus far at E3? Read on to find out.

There can be no denying that Ubisoft is one of the big boys now. From the Triple A to more unique and indie spirited, there seems to be no stopping them. Whether you like to drop from roofs with hidden blades up your sleeves, drive cars really fast over an immense game world, tactical shootering, or perhaps something a little less flashy with a little more depth, Ubi brought it this year. Compiling an impressive list to bring on stage, here's the highlights of Ubi's press event.
During their huge digital event away from some of the glitz and glamour of E3, Nintendo came out swinging against its competitors, confirming some major new editions of titles like Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox and even Mario vs. Donkey Kong! They also shed some more light on previously announced titles like the new Smash Bros, and Hyrule Warriors! Read on to find out more.

The other one, the other big ole name in gaming. They had something to prove, quite literally. People were waiting to see what they had to say for themselves, a misstep would have been disastrous; It seems they figured that out. I don't doubt the wave of social media bile and hate following their last E3 showing had something to do with it. Angry nerds in numbers are pretty good at making themselves heard. At any rate, they had a killer show with a lot of great things to tell you about.

Want to find out more about what EA is doing this year? Read on to find out.

Do you like shooting lots of horrible monsters, in style, with the promise of great riches, untold numbers of weapons, and amusing quips (or annoying, if its a claptrap) from the colorful characters around you? Then you've been to Pandora, and no, not the one filled with huge blue cat people. We're going back... well back-ish, with a new Borderlands adventure (and some shiny new bonus content for the Pre-Order inclined).

The two big consoles have been circling each other since last year, a year that found PS4 as the clear victor in the fight. This year, and at opposite ends of a very long day of a whole lot of great gaming news, Sony and Microsoft once again made their cases and drew their swords, but what was the result? We'll start at the end. Presenting last, the Sony Presser capped of what might have been one of the most interesting days of gaming information I've been a part of. How'd they do? Read on friend! Read on.

You ready? I certainly am. E3 time is fast approaching and its shaping up to be a good year. Fresh on the heels of the latest hardware generation there are a lot of folks clambering to make their case this year. Sony seems to have pulled ahead of Microsoft who have to make a big splash if they hope to make up the ground, and let's not forget about Nintendo. While these two 'Titans' have clashed in the past, Nintendo have quietly switched things up before and changed gaming as they did. Regardless, there's a lot of reasons to expect interesting things. Without further adieu, here is a list of some of the big players this year, and some of the cool stuff on display.
A year off the 20th celebration of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, and it is truly staggering the amount of media that we have collectively consumed, first mentioned, and then showcased at this once humble event. Now a premier place for gaming goings on, it's had quite a life (including a near death!) so far. So, with this years extravaganza on the near horizon, let's have a peak at some of the incredible things we first heard of at E3.
