Xbox One. PS4. Dualshock 4. Forza 5. The next generation of consoles is already obsessed with numbering things, even if some of them dont make sense (Xbox One is not the first Xbox). So it makes sense that the next Halo game should be called Halo 5.
Seems like Techland just cant stop churning out these zombie games. To their credit however, Dying Light shows a lot of promise and theres also some interesting multiplayer aspects...but if you want the whole MP package, youll have to pre-order...

Square-Enix may have laid much of the blame for its recent financials on the sales performance of Western-developed titles such as Tomb Raider, but it has not given up faith on the franchise. Like Hitman, we can expect to see Lara Croft next gen.

The game may have just been recently announced via a brief teaser at E3, but development on the next generation of Star Wars: Battlefront is actually well underway at DICE.

It should come as no surprise that Dead Rising 3 is a game that could not have been done on the Xbox 360...not that Capcom didnt try. Just read the story and watch the video. Oh! And CO-OP!

How would you feel about the possibility of new Achievements being added to the game you are playing every week? Would you be excited by the possibility of endless challenges or frustrated by what seems to be a completionists exercise in futility?
With Halo CE Annversary getting an HD makeover almost two years ago, itâ€™s about time that Fable got an HD facelift as well. Expect Full HD 1080p visuals, achievements, Xbox Smartglass functionality and more!
Hey, its yet another "Xbox One exclusive" rumor, but anything that increases the chances of each one of those promised "15 exclusive titles" being awesome and NOT A KINECTIMALS 2 game is more than welcome.
We still have next to no idea what the heck Quantum Break is about (aside from a creepy live-action girl), but at least we have a good idea what the games North American box art will look like, based on its recently revealed European counterpart.
Wedbush Securitiesâ€™ Analyst Michael Pachter hasnt been pulling his punches lately, as he predicts both the PS4 and Xbox One will sell out at launch at $349 and $399 respectively, but that the Xbox One will ultimately be the more popular console.
When it comes to opinions about Xbox One, its probably safe to say by consensus that the next-gen consoles large, squarish design is the least exciting part. However, it might surprise you that a less-sexy design is exactly what MS was going for.
If youâ€™re driving past the L.A. Convention Center, you might happen to glimpse a very large poster that officially reveals the previously unannounced release month of Dark Souls II. Praise The Sun!
Oh, those crazy folks at Amazon Italy. People would think you were leaking these in-production EA games on purpose. Of course, we knew about Dragon Age 3 before, but could the game have become an Xbox One exclusive?
No mention of TV at all at Microsofts E3 Press Briefing? Can such a promise be kept? Major Nelson seems to think so. Well, a great drinking game could come out of it either way: Everyone downs a shot whenever the words "TV" or "Games" are uttered!
In case Major Nelsonâ€™s statement during his online Yahoo Chat promising "Games, Games GAMES" didnâ€™t convince you, even the title of MSâ€™s upcoming E3 Media Briefing features the word "Games", so things are looking up. Read on to learn how to watch.
It was a LONG wait for Crysis 3 DLC (well over 3 months), but itâ€™s nearly here. Better yet, the multiplayer maps and modes contained therein will be inspired heavily by the setting of the original Crysis, giving players plenty to look forward to!
Mirrorâ€™s Edge 2 is looking more and more likely as EA themselves have now let the Faith out of the bag on one of their own webpages. Hopefully where thereâ€™s plenty of smoke, thereâ€™s fire.
When EA declared that they were eliminating the Online Pass program, they really meant it, as they are now retroactively making many of their older Online Passes free on the Xbox Marketplace. Could it be that a future DRM scheme is replacing it? Hmm.
PDP today announced it has entered into a licensing agreement with Microsoft to design, manufacture and sell officially-licensed accessories for Xbox One
For the second time in two weeks, Mirrorâ€™s Edge 2 has appeared in an online Amazon listing, giving more weight to earlier rumors that Battlefield developer DICE is indeed working on the sequel to this fan favorite, perhaps as an Xbox One exclusive.
Contrary to recent rumors, the Xbox One is not always watching and/or listening, as it can be turned completely off if the user desires. We suppose that also means that the device really isnt "always on"!
To say that last weeks Xbox One Reveal was a disappointment among the core Xbox gaming community would be a gross understatement. Microsoft has been listening however, and the company has officially pledged to make amends at E3.
Anyone who watched the Xbox One Reveal might remember Marc Whittens statement "Powered by The Cloud" during his tech- specs presentation. But does "Cloud Power" truly make a console more powerful? Read on and form your own impressions.
Not only will you be able to control the Xbox One via voice commands, it will recognize and register new people, speak and ask questions back to you a-la-Siri, and allow you to use Skype to get help from other players while in-game. Take that, PS4!
The Xbox One will continue the tradition of locking games, movies and entertainment services by region. Its unfortunate, but thats the way of the entertainment- business world, my friends.
While Microsoft execs have been reassuring us that the Xbox 360 still has plenty of life left in it, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen is one of the first in the industry to suggest a possible expiry date. Thankfully its FAR off. Heres to a huge install base!
In case you missed it, Xbox Lives Major Nelson (Larry Hyrb) recently confirmed in an online Yahoo chat session that the Xbox One will indeed support 3D and 4K.

Fear not, Indie games will still have their place on the Xbox One, despite developers not being allowed to self- publish on the console, Microsoftâ€™s Head of Interactive Entertainment, Don Mattrick assures.
Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. announced today that it has started working with Microsoft Corporation on the development of next generation accessories for the Xbox One.
Its been confirmed by Activision Publishing head Eric Hirshberg that COD: Ghosts on Xbox One will feature voice commands, among other Kinect 2.0 features. No word as to whether the Xbox 360 version will also be "Kinected".
What is Halo: Bootcamp? Is it a PC port or spin-off of Halo 3? A new game based on one of the Halo novels? Or something else? No one other than Microsoft knows for sure, and for the moment, all they want us to know is that its coming soon.
Steven Spielberg is lending his Executive Producer clout to a new Halo TV series that will be broadcast exclusively on Xbox One via Xbox Live. Will it be free to Gold Subscribers? And more importantly, will it be any good? Only time will tell.
Just as the original Kinect was released for the PC, the new Kinect Sensor that will be bundled with every Xbox One console will also see a PC equivalent arrive in 2014.
The most consistent complaint about the Xbox One Reveal is that Microsoft didnt show enough games, but for one fleeting moment during the show, an image of the Xbox One HUD may have let a total of 8 games slip. Let the E3 2013 speculation begin!
The above prediction might seem ludicrous, until you remember that the Xbox 360 launched in 2005 with two different SKUs, with the 20GB Premium model costing $399.99, and it would have cost hundreds more if you added the wifi adapter and the Kinect!
Believe it or not, Microsoft and Google are not exactly the best of friends, and its not because the Xbox 360s default search engine is Bing. For those of you who may have forgotten, Microsoft and Google have a case before the courts.
The developer behind Dead Island: Riptide and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger are partnering with Warner Brothers to bring us Dying Light, a new survival horror game that combines Dead Islands zombies with the parkour elements of Mirrors Edge.
The "Back" and "Start" buttons of the Xbox 360 controller have been replaced with two new buttons on the Xbox One controller. What are they called and what are they all about? Read on to learn more.
Xbox One Kinect must be connected and powered-on for the console to work, and it can see you clearly in the dark, but that doesnt mean that it always needs to be watching you.
Will Xbox One allow players to play used games or not? Will there be fees to do so, and how much? While not having all the answers, Microsofts Major Nelson made an official statement on his blog that at least provides hope of a reasonable solution.
Unfortunately, while your Gold Membership will carry over to Xbox One, your Xbox 360 Headsets, including your fancy surround sound Turtle Beach or Tritton cans, wont, at least not without some sort of adapter.
Its now been clarified that Xbox Live Gold Memberships will not only transfer back and forth seamlessly between Xbox 360 and Xbox One, they will also allow multiple users on the same Xbox One to share one account -- perfect for family scenarios.
15 games are coming to Xbox One in its first year, and 8 of them are exclusive to the Xbox One platform. Of course, there are many more in the works.
Come one, come all (unless you are Friend #1001)!
While its unlikely that most people will be able to afford TWO Xbox One consoles at launch, the possibility of starting a game on one console, pausing and then moving to another console to continue playing it will be possible, thanks to "The Cloud".
It also can read your heart rate and your emotions, see your body in high definition (even your fingers) and even recognize you based on voice alone, among other cool things. The potential of Kinect-enhanced gaming just got real.
Remember that weird, live-action TV show that you could stop and watch on almost any television in Alan Wake, Night Springs? Well, it seems that developer Remedy has taken the concept one step further, merging game and TV show in a fresh new way.
Forza 5â€™s long rumored appearance at the Xbox One reveal was hardly a surprise, but the fact that it is coming out this year AT LAUNCH and will look as good as the trailer and dashboard presentation suggested is enough to get excited about!
The more things change, the more things stay the same, but if you are loyal to both Call of Duty and the Xbox platform, then this can only be a good thing, as once again, youâ€™ll be getting all Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC first on Xbox One.
As we all suspected, the new x86 architecture-powered Xbox One will not play Xbox 360 games -- in any fashion whatsoever. But once again, theres a bright side, as the Xbox 360 will still have a future alongside the Xbox One...
Is it the all-in-one box that weve always wanted (and feared)? Yes. Does it come with and require Kinect 2.0 to function? Yes again. Is it a hulking mass of a machine? Bingo! But on the bright side, tech behind the console and Kinect look BADASS!
Forget "Infinity", "Fusion" or all those silly names you heard before. The Next Xbox is simply Xbox One, and frankly, Microsoft couldnt have picked a better name.
They say good things come to those who wait, so youd better dig in, as theres a good possibility that the Next Xbox will launch closer to Christmas that we thought.
Unfortunately, in contrast to an earlier report, Kevin Conroy will not be lending his signature, gravelly voice to Batman: Arkham Originsâ€™ younger caped crusader, and Mark Hamill wonâ€™t be playing the Joker either. Read on to see whoâ€™s replacing them.
Injustice: Gods Among Us whetted our appetite to play as Deathstroke (a.k.a. The Terminator), and now it looks like well be getting a double-dose of Slade love as well also be able to play him in the upcoming Batman game via pre- order DLC.
It looks like once the cat is out of the bag on the Next Xbox, well have a whole new way to get info about everything straight from the horses mouth, as "Xbox Wire" is now live.
It seems only natural that with the Next Xbox spearheading Microsofts plans to expand the Xbox brand beyond just one device, that the Xbox 360 would also share in many of the upgrades that are coming, cosmetically, at least. Read on to learn more.
It would be a shocker if Rainbow 6 Patriots is cancelled, as it was rumored to be making a possible appearance at Microsoftâ€™s upcoming reveal or at one of the E3 conferences, but when GameStop pulls a game from its database, it doesnt look good.
The Locust arent done with you yet, soldier! Pick your Lancer back up, steel your nerves and prepare for the coming onslaught in June!
Wondering whats the big deal with this Minecraft thing, but youre not one of those "always on" whippersnappers? No problem! Soon you can buy it at the store and play it offline with friends.
Well, come on kids, you didnt expect Microsoft to play their entire hand just a couple of weeks before the "Super Bowl" of the games industry, did you? That would be silly.
As we get closer and closer to Microsofts May 21st reveal, rumors that the Next Xbox may usher in a future without MS Points seem to be more credible than ever before.
Starring in a Grand Theft Auto game is no easy gig. Apparently you have to divulge your personal info as well as a picture of yourself on some dodgy website, then give up all your personal belongings and wear white robes all the time. Uh, sign me up?
Finally, a story thats not just a rumor! WWE fans can look forward to some more wrasslin this coming October.
There will be games and rumors of games. Naturally, both Rockstar and EA are gearing up for the coming gaming apocalypse with a number of predictable sequels, but its also possible that a follow-up Mirrors Edge may finally be in the works.
What is Xbox TV ultimately going to be? A Next Xbox add-on? A slimmed-down Next Xbox SKU? Or something else altogether? Well, regardless of what it will be, if its still in the works, you can expect Microsofts stage to be VERY crowded on May 21st.
A twitter contest being held by MS that concludes on the eve of the Next Xbox announcement has inadvertently suggested the likely appearance of a new Forza title and possibly even a new EA exclusive at the upcoming reveal, via its "follow" requests.
With the specs of the PS4 and the Next Xbox approaching that of "super-charged PCs" and console exclusives quickly becoming a thing of the past, it may fall to secondary apps to differentiate them. Skype, now MS-owned, might be that difference-maker.
Some of these suggested titles are complete no-brainers, but there are some unknowns as well as some long forgotten gems in the list as well. We can always dream, cant we?
We now have a date for the Xbox 360 HD remake of Capcoms popular 3DS game.
Just as a friendly PSA, I advise you wear protective glasses while playing this game, as theres a good chance you might get one or both of your eyes poked out while oggling DOA5 Ultimates "sensual yet realistic style". Consider yourselves warned.
While Microsoft wasnâ€™t known to put much support behind the recent trend of free- to-play models on the Xbox 360, things will be very different in the next generation, according to Epic Games Vice President, Mark Rein.
Ubisoft CEO Yannis Mallat believes that the next generation of consoles will knock our socks off visually, despite concerns next-gen games looking awfully "same-y". If theres anyone who should know, its Ubis vice commander-in- chief, right?
Snubbing multiplayer modes has been a growing trend among game franchises that are big enough to take the risk (e.g. Bioshock Infinite) or street cred (The Witcher). But is the new Wolfenstein taking a risk given its prequels and fan base?
EA has locked up the FIFA license for another 10 years. If you still like it, you better put another ring on it, right?
No Xbox hardware launch would be complete without a new entry in the Project Gotham Racing franchise, so hereâ€™s hoping Microsoft and Lucid Games have found a way to "bring the band back together".
Xbox Infinity has seemingly been confirmed as the name of the new Xbox, previously referred to as the Xbox 720 or by its alleged development codename, Xbox Durango.
Bethesda has announced Wolfenstein: The New Order for both current and next- generations consoles, signalling that FPS games are far from dead and that shooting evil Nazis in the face will never get old.
Given the mixed reception Windows 8 has been receiving since it launched in October, recent rumors suggesting the Durango OS would be based on it havent exactly set gamers on fire. But what if both operating systems were due for an upgrade?
Electronic Arts and Disney have entered into an exclusive, multi-year agreement to produce Star Wars games. On the bright side, at least EA has experience with The Force Unleashed games. Maybe they could take Star Wars: 1313 off of Lucasarts hands?
Speaking of Blu-Ray, it turns out that the only reason why we havent seen Metal Gear Solid 4 on the Xbox 360 is because of the consoles distinct lack of a Blu-Ray drive, an injustice that might finally be rectified should the Next Xbox have one.
Now the potential bad news about that Blu-Ray disc inclusion in the Next Xbox; like the PS3 before it, Blu-Ray could cause Microsofts next system to be unfashionably late to the next-gen party -- this time licensing issues being the culprit.
An internal Microsoft e-mail, reported on by ArsTechnica, has all but quelled rumors of the Next Xbox requiring a constant internet connection to function (whew), as well as all-but-confirmed support for Blu-Ray disc, among other things. HOORAY!
The first multiplatform title from Insominiac Games is almost upon us, and what better way to introduce ourselves to the "shooterrific" stylings of the Ratchet & Clank developers new IP than a demo? Next week, consider it done.
One great advantage of having the PS4s secrets out of the bag is that we can all now get a sneak peek of what to expect from titles also slated to appear on the Next Xbox. Watch Dogs will feature a denser, livelier atmosphere on PS4 for example.
Its likely no one saw this coming until now, but it looks like Batgirl will be joining the Injustice roster, following the previously announced Lobo DLC. This is going to make fights with Batman, Joker and Nightwing ESPECIALLY AWKWARD for DC fans.
Interest in Durango is reaching such a fever pitch that even Forbes.com is throwing in their two cents in guessing what the system will ultimately be called. What will it be? Fusion? Xbox? Infinity? I call "Infinity Plus One", so I automatically win.
Despite the seemingly "sub-series" title (theres no number in it), some old hands will be at the helm of Activisions latest entry in the Call of Duty Franchise, namely, the (new) Infinity Ward.
IGN, Gamespot and Gametrailers can stop fighting with each other for superiority on the Xbox 360 dashboard now, because they now have the new kid Machinima to pick on.
Some new info from Polygon.com sources suggest that cross-platform achievements between Xbox and Windows devices is highly likely and that an "Always On" requirement will be at the discretion of individual game publishers.
Never one to be known for being at a loss for words, Peter Molyneux has revealed hell likely be at Microsofts unveiling of the Next Xbox later this month, but not on stage.
"Fusion" makes a lot of sense, given Microsofts relentless efforts to position the Xbox platform at the core of the family entertainment center. Then again, it also makes me think of western sushi joints and "pro-glide" razors. What do you think?
All-New World, Story, Characters and Experience, All Powered by New, Next Gen Call of Duty Engine from the Developer that started it all, Infinity Ward.
On the upside, Respawn Entertainmentâ€™s \"Titan\" could be one of the best mech games on an MS platform ever. On the downside, it could become Steel Batallion: Heavy Armor 2. Fingers crossed and praying for the former.
If you thought the Kinect took getting used to, things are bound to get next- level freaky in the next-gen, if Microsoft has anything to say about it. IllumiRoom will apparently create a wider field of view surrounding your tv and add cool effects!
While the logic makes complete sense, a Batman game or animated feature without the gravelly vocal stylings of Kevin Conroy is a bitter pill to swallow. Next thing theyll say Mark Hamill is out too...oh wait...he was never in for this game, was he?
Someone at Capcom still remembers the day when words like "Resident Evil" and "Survival Horror" went together like Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Well, those days arent necessarily lost forever, as this upcoming demo will hopefully show.
Nothing but good news for CD Red Projekts upcoming finale to the Geralt Saga, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is the official name of the XCOM shooter thought to be missing in action over the past two years. The name isnt the only thing that was given a facelift -- its changed from an FPS to a tactical third- person shooter.
Mark your calendar kids! May 21st is the next gen announcement day! We cant wait!
Reports of XCOMs death have been greatly exaggerated. As previously assumed, 2K Marin has gone back to refine and re-brand the XCOM shooter they first revealed back in 2010, in order to differentiate it from the successful XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
Platinum Games denied. Crytek USA thwarted. The Darksiders IP, along with Red Faction, MX vs ATV and a number of older IPs have been auctioned off from THQ to Nordic Games for less than 5 milllion dollars.
Shinji Mikami is bringing survival horror back, baby, YEAH! The creator of Resident Evil is returning to the roots of the genre with a brand new IP (formerly named Zwei).
That crazy, ultra-violent, dreadlocked alien (hes Czarnian) will be the first DLC character made available for Injustice: Gods Among Us. Apparently hes popular with the DC fans, and a perfect fit for NetherRealm Studios latest fighting game.
The whole concept seems bizarre until one recalls Microsoftâ€™s renewed focus on placing the Xbox at the centre of the living room entertainment experience, both in this generation and the next through its Xbox TV service. But can Heroes be good again?
The photogenic (not) Gotham mob boss Black Mask will be the Dark Knights primary foe in Batman: Arkham Origins, and he wont be alone, as he has put out a hit on the caped crusaders head. Deathstroke has now become the least of his problems.
They gave you three HUGE expansions. They gave you Legendary Difficulty. They gave you an arrow to the knee. The folks at Bethesda have given you enough. Their jobs are done. Theyre moving on (possibly to make a new Fallout game). DEAL WITH IT. ;)
Ever since XCOM: Enemy Unknown arrived on the scene and stole the thunder of the controversial XCOM FPS that was previously in development, the fate of the latter game has been a mystery. The recent pulling of its website may be a clue, however.
Turn 10 and Playground Games are still pumping out content for their fans, and this time, its free for all Forza Horizon owners, regardless of whether you bought the Season Pass or not. Included are literally over 1000 challenges and two free cars!
Last weeks report about Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse coming to XBLA has now been confirmed. It will be a new-and-improved HD remake of the original Genesis game, rather than a straight port (which honestly would have looked awful FUGLY).
Ubisoft is bringing back yet another classic 2D action adventure that hasnt seen the light of day in a long time, but has every chance of being an instant hit...again. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Flashback.
Side-load no more! The official Xbox SmartGlass App can now be downloaded for Android tablets with screens 7-inches or larger. No "second screen" options apart from the remote (e.g. Halo Waypoint, UFC) seem to be featured as yet, but its a start.
Electronic Arts is the latest company to be hit by another round of layoffs, this time apparently in their Mobile division, where the company had planned to make the most strides in the past fiscal year.
Having recently received a launch date of May 1st, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon appears to be keeping the core open- world shooter elements that made FC3 great, but the rest of the game will have an intentional 80s Sci-fi B-movie feel. And Michael Biehn!
Did you really think that the Castle Map Pack was all 343 had in store for you this week? Ha! You just got Drop Shocked! But unlike getting Rick Rolled, theres actually much more to this. Read on.
If for some reason you passed on ODST back in the day and are interested in playing the games intentionally dark and fragmented narrative, the solo campaign (including Firefight but sans classic multiplayer) is now available via Games On Demand.
At long last, we finally know what the first Batman: Arkham game not developed by Rocksteady will be called. That doesnt mean it wont be any less awesome. Deathstroke is in it, after all!
It looks like even more Disney goodness might be coming our way. While its unlikely to get the same HD treatment as the recently announced Duck Tales remake, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse might be re-released on XBLA very soon.
Console players can now join their PC counterparts in returning to the land of Skyrim to challenge a new difficulty level, complete with a new level cap for each skill once it reaches 100.
If Microsoft is truly planning to reveal its plans for the Next Xbox on May 21st, that day cant come soon enough as the same rumors (such as no backward- compatibility) keep resurfacing over and over, this time backed by a fairly credible source.
Microsoft had originally been planning to unveil its next-generation Xbox details at an event in April.
Start Your Engines! Motocross Madness Is Coming April 10th.
Ugh...the futuristic theme was an April Fools joke, until it wasnt...or isnt it?!? You know what, maybe we should just stop talking about it until someone at Ubisoft explains it in a press release. My head hurts, Im going to go lie down now.
It seems like this is one rumor that the Next Xbox cant shake, as a Kotaku source has just reignited the pesky fire once again. If you dont have a persistent internet connection, the Durango wont function, or so scuttlebutt would have us believe.
And the hits just keep on coming.
FREE App Gives Movie Lovers Access to Hundreds Of Great Films Featuring Big Stars at No Charge.
Lucasarts wasnt strong enough with the Force to prevent this. Now that all games are cancelled, what does this mean for the future of Star Wars video games? Difficult to see, always in motion is the future.
Squeenix LA is not the only office having it rough today, as Activision has laid off 40 staff from Deadpool developer High Moon Studios, well before the games summer release.
And now the bad news. Last weekâ€™s restructuring at Square-Enix has resulted today in an unspecified number of layoffs at Squeenixâ€™s LA office. Meanwhile, Japanese teams behind FFXIII, FFXIV, & FFXIII Versus remain untouched and at large. Hmm.
Good news! The second multiplayer DLC pack for Tomb Raider, titled "1939" is out today, following up on last months Xbox 360 exclusive "Caves and Cliffs DLC" with two new maps, and even more packs are on the way. Stay tuned for bad news, though...
Those of you bummed out by how Mass Effect 3 turned out might look at the headline and scoff, but those of you who have played Witcher 2 know that such a feat is not only attainable but brimming with potential in developer CD Projekt REDs hands.
In his own Twitlonger twitter post yesterday, David Hayter recently came clean and confirmed that he wont be voicing Snake/Big Boss in the upcoming MGS V, and clarified that it was not his choice. Unfortunately, it wasnt an April Fools Joke.
You know that its a Grand Theft Auto game when a cover art reveal garners the same if not more attention than the announcement of exclusive DLC for other titles. Speaking of which, I wonder if there will be an early Xbox 360 DLC window this time?
The 1980â€™s Terminator-inspired visual and audio leanings are apparently fake, but the game is still real. Read on if you want to live...
Apparently, Epic Games are not the only company who can release highly anticipated free DLC early, not if 343 Industries has anything to say about it.
Need we say more?
Remember that free DLC that Epic Games and sponsor Maxim promised to make available shortly after launch? Well, its now available to download, even earlier than originally expected. So what are you standing there for, soldier? Go download it ASAP!
In an recent interview with GameTrailers, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima finally unwrapped the bandages on MGS V, addressing the Phantom Pain shenanigans, the absence of David Hayter and his future involvement with the franchise after MGS V.
You know Easter Weekend is over when DC Superheroes start pummelling and impaling the crap out of one another. Oh, and the Injustice demo is also coming out. And NO, neither Jesus or Jesse Custer (Preacher) have been confirmed as playable characters.
