This Trailer Has The Worst Forced Commentary You'll Ever Hear

Ubisoft has already taught the world about the horrors of manufactured banter in trailers for games like Rainbow Six: Siege and The Division.

But unlike most people, Capcom apparently thought Ubisoft were onto something. After all, if you’re making a horror game why not hype it up with horrible chatter? That appears to be the logic behind the latest trailer for Umbrella Corps, a 3v3 competitive shooter spin-off from the Resident Evil series.

BATTLECRY Is Not Meeting Bethesda's Quality Standards Right Now

One of the big calling cards of PAX Australia last year was Bethesda’s free-to-play BATTLECRY, the MOBA-esque third party action brawler. Bethesda promised it would have an exclusive beta for Australia and New Zealand, and the crowd was enthralled over the whole weekend.

But news about BATTLECRY has run thin and the game was absent from last weekend’s EB Expo, despite a decent showing for Fallout 4. One writer put the question to Bethesda: what’s going on with BATTLECRY?

What The Hell Is Going On With Call Of Duty On Xbox One?

Until a few days ago, it was possible to digitally pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for Xbox One through Xbox Live or Amazon. That’s no longer the case, though nobody can explain why. Seriously, I asked Activision and Microsoft what’s going on, but their statements don’t make any sense.

Here's What You Should Know About The Star Wars: Battlefront Beta

If you’re like me, you’re probably itching for the chance to get home so you can fire off your blasters once again. In that case, the Star Wars: Battlefront beta will be the perfect tonic.

But while you might be familiar with the Battlefield games, DICE’s re-entry into the world of Star Wars brings with it a few changes that mixes up the traditional formula.

Rock Band 4: The Kotaku Review

It’s a good time for Rock Band 4 (as made famous by Rock Band, Rock Band 2, Rock Band 3, LEGO Rock Band, The Beatles: Rock Band and Green Day: Rock Band.)

I Keep Going Back To The First Forza Horizon

Do you have a game you regularly return to, just because you like how it feels? For me, that game is Forza Horizon.

Star Wars: Battlefront Not Designed For Microtransactions

Given DICE’s willingness to allow microtransactions in the Battlefield series of the last few years, and EA’s growing fondness for the model, this is a surprising reversal.

Halo 5's Forge Mode Won't Be Available At Launch

343 Industries has unveiled Halo 5’s new Forge mode. The team has been focusing on accessibility, essentially making it easier to create maps quickly and efficiently. But it won’t be available when the game launches on October 27.

Nielsen Rates Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 As The Most Wanted Game For The Rest Of 2015

It probably makes sense when you think about how much money Call of Duty actually makes, although it’s probably not what I would have picked for overall community engagement.

I Don't Know If Microsoft Can Fix The Xbox Experience

The Xbox One User Interface is a mystery to me.

It oscillates wildly between intuitive and bewildering. Often within seconds. There have been occasions where I’ve praised it to the high heavens for its ability to switch rapidly between apps. But if I had to define my time spend using the UI in one image it would be this: me, sat on my couch, frustrated, angrily scrolling through options, randomly barking instructions to Kinect. Desperately trying to find that one option I’ve been trying to change, with little to no idea where the hell I should be looking.
