I’ve always been a little conflicted when it comes to playing first person shooters online. On one hand, it is a special brand of visceral fun which is filled with camaraderie and tasteful competition. On the other hand, it can be a disappointing playground of angry, maladjusted morons. In the upcoming first-person shooter Brink from Bethesda they highlight both sides. The game boasts the ability to customize your very british looking roughnecks in to a myriad of different muscle-bound scary looking killers. It also features an interesting movement mechanic that will level the playing field by automatically move your character to cover.


Enjoy the newest trailer in which a crap load of ugly Brit meatheads kill each other.

Being a child of the ‘80s, when the first live action Transformers film came out, a tear came to my eye for the pure joy. After watching the second live action Transformers film, I teared up yet again, this time in disgust. So, when I heard that they were coming out with a new transformers game that is not based on the films, I was hit with a mixture of excitement and dread. The game and film studios tried to cash in on both recent movies with video game offshoots, which were both released to bad to mixed reviews. The new game does not take place on our planet, instead it takes place back on the Transformers own soil… or silicon, back on their home planet of Cybertron. The trailer below is the first to feature real game play footage and it looks promising.
