Let's check out the new modes in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Our review of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is on hold until the game's online components are switched on — but we can still showcase the new stuff in this version of Nintendo's cross-franchise fighting game. In the above video, we run through some of the content that wasn't in last month's 3DS version of Smash, like eight-player battles, amiibo functionality and Event matches. We also make an arena in the game's level builder, and melt Mario down in a pool of molten lava, which is kind of horrifying. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U launches tomorrow — keep an eye out for our review then.

This is how the pros play World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

Sometimes Griffin and I get together to record a video, and it turns into something different than what we expected. Case in point: today's look at the new World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor. Most of this video is taken up by me showing off the introduction to the expansion, as well as the new garrison and follower mechanics. But near the end, I decide to throw caution to the wind and engage in an epic battle against a larger-than-life foe. Will I succeed? Will I get incredible loot? How many times will I be sent to the graveyard before the video ends? Watch it for yourself above.

Modern games mocked in this video about simpler times

Video games today are great, aren't they? Better than ever. All those pretty graphics and huge open worlds. All the achievements and friend requests. All the opportunities to spend more money on DLC and collect pointless in-game stuff. All the server connectivity issues and download waits and patches and .... oh man ... just take me back to 1980.

Here's a taste of the stuff of nightmares: Lost in the ocean's depths in a walking coffin

I had a chance to drop into the claustrophobic, Oculus Rift-empowered world of Narcosis during GDC earlier this year. It was a memorable experience delivered by a young team of indie devs hoping to turn a college concept project into something ready for retail release. Now it's due out sometime next year on PC. Have a look at the premise of the game in the video above and then hop over to this article for an interview about how the game manages to turn shooters on their head.

Grappling, wingsuiting and turning pigs into bags in Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 has a lot of the same dynamic, wondrous beats that were introduced by its predecessor — beloved activities like setting an entire jungle on fire, accidental skydiving and taking skin from animals and turning that skin into containers for things. Like more skin! It's the circle of life, probably. It's also got grappling hooks and personal helicopters and soldiers who ask you politely not to kill them while you're killing them. So, you know. Highs and lows. Check out our Overview video above to see us take down a radio tower and an outpost in Far Cry 4. Also, we go to town on some pigs, all for the greater good.

Destiny's new hoverbike lets Guardians do crazy freestyle tricks

There's a new Sparrow coming to Destiny that will let Guardians pull off some kooky tricks: flips, twists, can cans, supermans and more. No longer are players limited to simply sitting down as they hoverbike their way through Destiny. Now they can freestyle, as you can see in the dubstep-fueled trailer above. The new Sparrow, called the EV-30 Tumbler, features "advanced modifications that bypass standard safety systems, disabling the stabilization and gyroscopic-force dampeners designed to keep you grounded," Bungie says, while pointing out its sweet, flame-licked paint job. Destiny's new ride is coming to the game as part of its first expansion, The Dark Below, which hits Dec. 9. But Destiny players who have purchased the game's Expansion Pass can take control of the EV-30 Tumbler...

Life, death and not being able to respawn in LittleBigPlanet 3

Sony's LittleBigPlanet series has always been known as a place for people to create and share their own imaginative platformer levels, but that's only one of the elements that has been pushed as a major part of LittleBigPlanet 3. I called up my boss and LittleBigPlanet skeptic Chris Grant to give him a tour of the new game. You can watch the video above to see story levels, one of the new characters, some user-created content, new creation tutorial levels and more. I even threw in one hilariously bad glitch that is fixed as of the game's day-one patch. For even more information on LittleBigPlanet 3, check out our full review. UPDATE: Sony kindly got in touch to let us know that the bug mentioned in the paragraph above and shown in the video is fixed as of that day one patch. I've...

Grand Theft Auto 5 remastered lets you play as a chicken in a peyote-fueled hallucination

Grand Theft Auto 5 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One includes plenty of content that wasn't available in last year's original release. It doesn't offer any new playable characters — well, not unless you count a chicken. Developer Rockstar North added a special new type of hidden package to Grand Theft Auto 5 for the remaster. As you can see in the video above from YouTube user taltigolt, 27 peyote plants are strewn about the vast expanse of San Andreas. And each time you collect one, you get a special treat: a hallucination in which you are transmogrified into an animal. In this case, Franklin Clinton becomes a chicken; it's unclear at this point if the other pieces turn you into different animals. Grand Theft Auto 5 boasts a wide variety of wildlife, such as cougars, deer and sharks. The...
