Thor and Captain America will be the next Marvel heroes to get the big-screen treatment this summer, and while we're certainly looking forward to watching these two icons kick some ass at the movies, gamers like to stay home and kick some ass on our own from time to time. Luckily, titles for both of these characters are in development, and...

Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo
  Not so long ago, PC gamers often asked of a new PC hardware if, "it can do Crysis?" Quickly the off question became somewhat of a legendary and yet, humorous examination of not just computer hardware, but of legendary chase after video games with Crysis-like graphics. The follow-up to the best-looking game on planet earth is setting sights on a console release. But are the...

Here's how you can get in on the action:

Why Did Treyarch Remove 'Mercenary Team Deathmatch' from 'Call of Duty:...

"Call of Duty: Black Ops" received an update this week, and lost a popular game mode in the process. 'Mercenary Team Deathmatch' was replaced by 'Mercenary Moshpit' - a completely new version which injects objective modes like 'Search & Destroy' and 'Domination' into the mix. Players lacking friends and hesitant to join normal game modes that allow pre-made teams favored 'Mercenary Team...

Each week sees the release of countless downloadable titles across all three major game consoles - some big, some small and some old titles given a new lease on life. In the effort of limiting the time you spend gathering information on these games and increasing the time you spend playing them, we're doing the legwork for you. Here are this week's downloadable releases across the...

'Call of Duty: Black Ops' Booster Posts Mammoth Score [Updated]

BlackOpsLogoBooster
A controversial video made the rounds this weekend featuring a "Call of Duty: Black Ops" player racking up a whopping 501 kills in a single match. Possibly a world record -  if it wasn't fraudulent. The player - eViLxGoYaBeans - took part in a Demolition match in which his clan demonstrated a "spawn trap" - essentially, covering the opposing team's spawn point so completely that they can...

EA Draws the Bloody Curtain Back on Dead Space 2 DLC 'Severed' with New...

"Dead Space 2" is young, much like the baby necromorphs players cut apart during protagonist Isaac Clarke's desperate fight for survival in a space city gone to hell. The game released just last month -  January 25th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox360. That isn't stopping publisher EA - whose base if brilliant marketing campaign for the action-horror title informed gamers that their mothers would...

Walkthrough Wednesday: Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds

MarvelVsCapcom3
"Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds" hit stores last week, and since the last proper entry in the long-running franchise came out in 2000 you're probably a little rusty: dashing when you should be blocking; whiffing hyper combos; and not effectively utilizing Assists. Maybe you forget the game even had assists. That's OK - it happens to the best of us. But we're here to help you...

Parents Who Actually Name Their Children After Bethesda's 'Skyrim'...

Bethesda is holding a contest aimed at prospective parents: name your baby 'Dovahkiin' (after the fictional protagonist from the developer's upcoming game "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim"), and be rewarded with a lifetime key to all Bethesda/Zenimax titles released on Steam. The child must be born on the game's release date, which thankfully limits the number of children who could potentially...

The Official PlayStation Blog announced yesterday that classic RPG "Xenogears" would see a North American release on the PlayStation 3 via the console's online network on Feb. 22nd. The title was previously exclusive to the original PlayStation before making the jump to the modern console in 2008 -- albeit only in Japan. Now, U.S. players can revisit (or experience for the first time) a game...

Amazing Call of Duty: Black Ops Crossbow Kills

Call of Duty: Black Ops' crossbow gets short shrift when compared to the more exotic tomahawk -- and for good reason: it's fun watching one hurled across a map to find its unsuspecting mark a few seconds later. Though both require a greater degree of finesse (and some luck) than the conventional weapons, the tomahawk has become an obvious favorite in a community obsessed with catching - and...

New 'Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception' Videos Inspire Awe, Lame Fire Puns

I was reading through my Facebook updates, and I noticed a couple about new "Uncharted 3" videos. Well, to be honest, I noticed similar puns in both headlines based on the fact that the gameplay on display occurs in a mansion engulfed in flames. Not to be undone, I've decided to supply some of my own forced and obvious wordplay about the new clips that could double as headlines. The heat is...

Esteemed GamerCrave feature writer Justin Massoud just dropped off a few LittleBigPlanet 2 beta codes to give away.

Just Cause 2 Infographic Shows Chaos in Agregate

justcause2header
I'm a pretty big fan of Just Cause 2. The game's full of cheap thrills -- its shot at Game of the Year was marred by lazy mission design, sadly -- and the slightest mention gives me the urge to base jump from an airplane to a helicopter and blow up some buildings with rockets (not in real life). So, fully recognizing Square-Enix's blatant attempt to squeeze out a few more sales with a Just Cause...

"Project Dark" is Essentially Demon's Souls 2

Demon's Souls was, I thought, the best game of 2009, so even though there's very little information about Project Dark -- supposedly the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls -- I'm compelled to pass the announcement along. Reporters at Tokyo Game Show were shown a teaser trailer for Project Dark (just a codename), which according to 1UP included "lots of undead monsters in helmets and booming...
