How Telltale handles loot and gore in Tales from the Borderlands

Tales from the Borderlands is shaping up to be a fascinating beast — something developer Telltale has proven itself capable of manufacturing en masse. Seeing a developer take up the reigns to another developer's franchise is bizarre, particularly when the developers are as disparate as Gearbox and Telltale; yet, the new series' first episode shows a tremendous amount of respect from the latter toward the former, particularly in how the series handles Borderlands' over-the-top violence and approach to unimaginable materialism. Check out the Overview above to see a few scenes from the game's first episode, and for our discussion on how Telltale's signature style fits on top of the bombast of Pandora.

Watch the final fate of World of Warcraft's biggest villain

Over its 10 years of existence, World of Warcraft has gone through a lot of major bad guys — from Ragnaros, the fire lord in charge of the game's first raid, to Arthas, the Lich King who controlled an unstoppable wave of undead from his castle in the frozen wastes of Northrend. But whoever is your favorite, there's no denying that the biggest baddie of the last few years has been none other than Garrosh Hellscream. Garrosh first rose to power during 2008's Wrath of the Lich King expansion, eventually taking the place of series mainstay Thrall as the warchief of the Horde. Unfortunately, Garrosh quickly proved to be a less trustworthy leader. In addition to treating any non-orcs as second-class citizens, Garrosh spearheaded the destruction of a major Alliance city, ruining any chances...

Check out Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions' new campaign, customization options

The Geometry Wars series is the closest anyone's come to making a modern arcade game, with slick but simple gameplay and relentless leaderboard chases. The franchise's latest installment, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, adds a few complexities to the mix, however — things like a campaign mode, boss fights and customization elements. How are those elements layered on without disrupting that simplicity? Also, how quickly can the game send us into a rage spiral from which we will never, can never escape? We attempt to answer those questions, and more, in the Overview of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions posted above.

YouTuber Man at Arms: Reforged is always happy to take on a video game-related blacksmithing challenge.

Fighting games' most memorable moment revisited in Daigo vs. Justin Wong rematch

Ten years ago, Daigo Umehara managed one of fighting games' most impressive feats when he famously pulled off a full parry against Chun-li's Houyoku Sen super art in Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike. That performance, dubbed "moment #37" at the 2004 Evo fighting game championship, has been watched more than 1.8 million times on YouTube. This weekend, Umehara participated in an exhibition rematch with the man on the receiving end of that stunning reversal and the winner of this year's Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament at Evo, Justin Wong. They recreated their match, Ken versus Chun-li, in 3rd Strike's subway stage, and gave the crowd the demonstration they came for. For a replay of this weekend's exhibition from #37Reloaded, watch Super Arcade's video above (which looks great at 60...

Batman: Arkham Knight's new takedown brings the pain in gameplay video

Batman has some impressive new battle tools and techniques at his disposal in Batman: Arkham Knight, as you can see in a new gameplay video released today by publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. In the three-and-a-half-minute clip, Batman "infiltrates" the Ace Chemicals plant, although that's not really the right word for it — Batman and the Batmobile basically kick down the door of the facility as he wages a one-man assault on the plant. It seems that Scarecrow has taken control of Ace Chemicals with a veritable army put together by the shadowy Arkham Knight, surely for some nefarious purposes amid a grander plan. Batman's going in to confront Scarecrow and rescue a few imprisoned Ace Chemicals employees. Here we can see how Batman: Arkham Knight integrates the Batmobile...
