The Beautiful Concept Art Behind Destiny

Say what you will about Destiny as a game - it can be as brilliant as it is disappointing - but one thing I've never wavered on is how pretty it all is, something that's been a constant since before we'd even seen the game itself.

Hearthstone Passes 20 Million Players, What Do You Want to See Next?

Hearthstone has been out in full release for just six months, but according to Blizzard, the free-to-play card game has already amassed 20 million players.

The official Hearthstone twitter account tweeted out the statistic today in the above graphic, writing, "Thank you all for joining us in Hearthstone! We're going to need a bigger tavern!"

That puts Blizzarrd's experiment with a new gaming model well above the current number of World of Warcraft subscribers (which currently hovers...

Sand People Ride Cute Dogs In Single File, To Hide Their Numbers

$24. That's all this costs. $24 to turn your "dog" into a Bantha. I say "dog", because I'm looking at this, and I'm looking at my 18 month-old kid, and I'm reaching for my wallet.

Ninja Theory's Collaboration with Disney Infinity is Just the Start

At this year's Giant Bomb PAX East panel, Disney Infinity executive producer John Vignocchi announced Disney's collaboration with Ninja Theory--the development house behind DmC Devil May Cry, Enslaved, and Heavenly Sword. While this specific partnership may come as a surprise, the concept of external development teams working on Infinity isn't a new one.

"It's an interesting collaboration, and one that I don't think people saw coming," Vignocchi said to GameSpot in a recent interview....

In the shadow of a $2.5 billion deal, one famed game dev slips away

The biggest gaming news of the day wasn't the $2.5 billion purchase by Microsoft of the studio behind massive-hit Minecraft, it was why the game's creator chose to sell and not stick around after he did.

Minecraft's immense popularity, broken down by platform

With Microsoft's announcement this morning that it's acquired Swedish developer Mojang, there's been no shortage of numbers thrown around. First is the princely sum of $2.5 billion, which might seem like an awful lot of money for a studio with really just one game to its name. But that game just so happens to be Minecraft, something of a cultural phenomenon.

With Minecraft, Microsoft Can Build Broader Horizons

"It's internet LEGO!" was probably the most interesting quote overhead at the pub on Friday evening during one of my recurring trips to the gents.

It was bellowed by a middle-aged man, resplendent with a pin-stripe suit just like the professional décor of his associates, none of whom carried the stereotypical traits of a traditional "gamer."

"Seriously! It's LEGO on your computer," the old chap continued as I edged past on my way to the loo, by this point fairly tempted to jump in and...

My favorite aspect of the first Disney Infinity was the toys. Carefully sculpted and painted, each one was a tiny work of art . This week I received the first batch of figures for Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes, and the quality isn't quite up to snuff.

New Donkey Kong Country game made in Doom engine

Using the sprites, music and general design philosophy from all three SNES Donkey Kong Country games, modder DooMero has crafted a brand new DKC in the Doom engine.

You can check out a long play of Donkey Kong Country DooM on YouTube, and the thread detailing the making of the game on the ZDoom forums.

This is impressive work, for a number of reasons. Taking an aging engine designed for 3D games, and using it to crank out a fast-paced 2D platformer is no meant feat. But what DooMero...

See what a real-life war photographer did with The Last of Us Remastered's Photo Mode

The Last of Us Remastered on PlayStation 4 includes a Photo Mode, in which players can manipulate freeze-frames of the game and turn them into images of post-pandemic America ... images that also happen to show off the PS4's technical chops and developer Naughty Dog's stunning art. The act of using the Photo Mode barely resembles — not that it's meant to — what war photographers do: put their own lives at risk in real-life combat zones to document the casualties and consequences...
