    During New York Comic Con, Joshua Ortega, writer for Gears of War, claimed that the series was on a ten-year plan: “You will not be disappointed in the next ten years. It’s a ten-year plan.

  • Gears' 'Dom' To Play Michael Corleone

    Voicing one of America's most beloved film characters can't be easy, so it's good that EA has decided to go with a veteran of game acting to portray Michael Corleone in the upcoming The Godfather II game.

  • Capcom's Mike Webster Speaks On 'Resident Evil 5', Cliffy B, Dead Jill Valentine, And More

    I've known Capcom's director of brand marketing, Mike Webster, for several years.
