It’s all about rivalries in the main event for WWE 2K15

WWE games were starting to get stale, they were starting to feel more repetitive than a best of 7 match between Goldberg and Gillberg, under the stewardship of THQ. After that company dissolved however, 2K Games picked up the franchise, and injected some much needed new blood back into the series. It wasn’t perfect, but for a fresh start it was most certainly headed in the right direction thanks to some superb rekindling of classic memories. And this year, expect WWE 2K15 to focus on kicking even more ass this year, thanks to the new 2K Showcase mode.

Evolve delayed to February 2015

Looks like yet another game is getting delayed out of the hellish month of October. Publisher 2K Games are pushing Evolve into February of next year.

Check out episode one of the making of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

Here at Lazygamer, we love us some Borderlands, as I’m so fond of telling Umar with each and every article that I possibly can (JOKES LUVS YOO). Borderlands, its sequel and various add-ons, have been an American product in the hands of Gearbox ever since the franchise arrived. But with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, players are getting a game with a very Australian development feel to it.

Pay $20 for the entire Bioshock series and 6 more games

The latest Humble Bundle is an absolute killer of a deal for fans of excellent games and anyone with any modicum of taste at all actually.

Borderlands:The Pre-Sequel could arrive on PS4 and Xbox One

If there’s one bunch of games that I’ve perhaps put too many damn hours into, it has to be Borderlands and its superb sequel. I’m currently reaching the hundred hour mark on that game as I replay missions yet again in order to build up my Mechromancer (BEST ROBOT EVAR), and you can be damn well certain that I want some time alone with the upcoming Pre-Sequel game. That game is only scheduled for old-gen consoles and PC at the moment. But it could be more handsome on new-gen as well.

John Cena is your WWE 2K15 cover star, the internet reacts

Word life! This is basic thuganomics! Word life! While I find John Cena’s supposed doctorate in thuganomics to be rather spotty at best, you can’t argue with the 15-time World Heavyweight and WWE champion. Because you’re most likely going to end up on the receiving end of an Attitude Adjustment slam.

Evolve: In-depth hands-on

Evolve is one of those games picked up from the smouldering embers of THQ’s demise early last year and I’m increasingly starting to think 2K games made a wise purchasing decision.  You may not recognize its developer, Turtle Rock Studios by name, but you’re almost certainly aware of its biggest game; the co-operative zombie-shooter Left 4 Dead. Evolve takes the basic premise of that, as a co-operative shooter and  - I hate myself for saying this – evolves it. And it’s fun.

There’s a new Borderlands coming

We here at the Lazygamer office have spent more time than we care to admit playing Borderlands 2 – as have many of you. That said, we’re not sure we’re quite ready for a sequel.  Good thing there isn’t one. Gearbox’s Randy Pitchord recently said that his studio wasn’t busy making Borderlands 3. He omitted the fact that another studio was making a Borderlands game though.

2K nails Xbox with a fastball and cancels MLB

2K’s latest baseball release, MLB 2K13, was widely panned as being a limp copy of the previous MLB 2K12. And now, we have all been taken by surprise at their decision to cancel all future development of the MLB series in its entirety.

Have you been paying attention to The Bureau: XCOM Declassified live action trailers? If not then make sure you catch up by clicking here and watching the entire series.

GTA V to smash all day one sales records

When we talk about the industry's mega-titles we quickly start thinking about Call of Duty, Battlefield, FIFA and even Assassin’s Creed. But in reality they all pale in comparison to the juggernaut that is Grand Theft Auto.

Hands on with The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

It hasn't been an easy couple of years for the XCOM franchise. Back in 2011' the next step in the future of that series was revealed, a FPS that was heavy on the gung-ho and light on the spirit of the original games. After being off the radar for quite a while, that game has re-emerged as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. And it might just be the updated game that fans wanted in the first place.

Has XCOM been cancelled?

Firaxis’ reboot of the original turn-based strategy title XCOM: Enemy Unknown can be considered a success – and not just critically or commercially. It successfully revitalised the entire genre as something that’s not only deeply strategic, but both harrowing and fun to play. It’s not the only XCOM reboot – and if you’ll recall, there’s supposed to be a first-person re-imagining of the game on the horizon. We’ve seen and heard very little about that since 2011 though – and now it looks like it’s been cancelled.

Violent games are “creatively too easy”

If you haven’t played Yager’s Spec Ops: The Line, you really should. Though it has some grinding, mundane shooting mechanics (by design, I’m convinced), it tells an incredible story – and forces you to think about the very real horrors of war, and its intrinsic violence. It’s writer, Walt Williams told an audience at GDC that violent games are “creatively too easy” and that the industry needs to start thinking of better, more diverse ways of telling stories through videogames.

Bioshock: Infinite is playable on the PS Vita

I’m a self confessed hater when it comes to the PS Vita. I don’t see the point and have not been the least bit surprised when it comes to reporting on its poor sales record… I also never saw the point of remote play as it was so selective.. but that is about to change.
