Videogame Deathmatch Round 4 Is Happening Right Now - Your Vote Decides The Final 2 Games

G4's Videogame Deathmatch: Best of 2012 is happening right now and the votes are coming in fast and furious (word to Paul Walker). Have you voted yet? If you're an Assassin's Creed 3 fan you really should vote ASAP. Why? Because your Red Coat stabbing boy Ratohnhaketon is getting absolutely stomped by Borderlands 2. So far it's not even close. BL2 is winning by a landslide. 

I thought everyone loved Assassin's Creed 3 so what happened? Personally I'm a huge Borderlands 2 fan so I'm cool with the way your votes are shaping up. Are you? Either way, your opinion doesn't count unless you vote, vote, vote! Side note: I spelled Conner's real name off the top of my head, no cheating. Zero chance you can do that.

Skyrim: Dragonborn Launch Guide - Welcome to Solstheim!

Skyrim may be the largest game out there, but it got even bigger this week with the release of Dragonborn, the third DLC pack from Bethesda. While this summer's Dawnguard added a few new features and locations, Dragonborn really kicks it up a notch. Your journey will take you out of the land of Skyrim entirely, to the island of Solstheim off the coast of Morrowind. Long term Elder Scrolls fans who played Morrowind might recognize a few land marks and items, as well as some lore elements in Dragonborn.

The main storyline of Dragonborn involves your character being approached by followers of Miraak - the First Dragonborn. Once you've been approached by them, and found out where they came from, you'll book passage to Solstheim and begin your journey. Once there, you'll quickly discover something is a little off about Miraak, and that's really where the main quest line kicks off. Of course, in traditional Skyrim fashion, you can totally ignore that quest and explore the island first. In fact I recommend doing just that, at least for a few hours. You'll find a number of the new features added in with the Expansion right near Raven Rock.

The Collection Writer And Director Interview: Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton On Creating A Horror Sequel

Tucked among the holiday tentpole and Oscar bait movies opening at your local cinema this weekend is Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton’s gory little horror film The CollectionThe Collection is a sequel to Dunstan and Melton’s 2009 film The Collector. In the original movie a burglar named Arkin, played by Josh Stewart (The Dark Knight Rises), robs a house that, unbeknownst to him, has been filled with deadly booby traps set by the titular Collector; a masked killer who delights in watching innocent people meet their demise in his traps. In The Collection, Arkin is blackmailed into helping a privately funded group of mercenaries rescue a young girl held hostage by The Collector in an abandoned hotel rigged with all manner of homemade death traps.

This week we had a chance to sit down with Dunstan and Melton (whose credits include writing Feast, Saw 4 – Saw 3D, and Piranha 3DD) and talk about having a sequel stand on its own two feet, navigating audience expectations, and why they chose to shoot a low budget movie on film instead of digital.

(Note: mild spoilers ahead)

Atari's classic table tennis game Pong is celebrating its 40th (40th!?!) anniversary today (11/29) and Atari is honoring its highly regarded original IP by giving you gifts! Originally released in 1972, Pong was an almost overnight cultural sensation that firmly put videogames on the map. It also raked in money; upright cabinets grossed nearly $40 per day (unheard of at the time). In 1975 Atari's Home Pong console was released and grossed $40 million that holiday season alone. That Xbox 360 or PS3 in your home today owes a lot to Pong's tremendous success in 1972.

To celebrate Pong's 40th anniversary today Atari released Pong World, a free mobile Pong game for iOS, and they're giving away a limited edition Atari 2600-skinned Xbox 360 on their official Facebook page. Click that link, it's pretty sick.

Check out the Pong 40th Anniversary trailer below:

In the mood to play Pong right now? Guess what silly goose you can! Hit the jump to take on G4's table tennis game right now. No quarters necessary.
