You may not have noticed, but the robot invasion continues to expand into our movies and TV shows. Case in point: Robot Combat League, a new competition show on SyFy that features human controlled robots battling for superiority. It’s basically Mattel’s Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots game (and/or the movie Reel Steel) come to life. WWF/E champ Chris Jericho hosts the show which airs every Tuesday night at 10/9c - and if you'd like a taste, check out this clip:

Really, if a show has robots in it, we're going to watch, but RCL has featured two of our favorites to date: Drone Strike and A.X.E.  Meet them in all their cybernetic glory after the jump.

Defiance, SyFy’s upcoming science fiction TV series that’s intertwined with an MMO video game of the same name, premieres Monday April 15th at 9/8c. We’ve talked almost exclusively about the game but today we snuck a look at the making of the TV show.

In the clip below, series leads Grant Bowler and Stephanie Leonidas discuss the relationship between their characters, Nolan and Irisa, which is central to the show. On a war ravaged future Earth, rough around the edges human outsider Nolan takes knife wielding alien Irisa under his wing. Nolan serves as a de facto father for Irisa and the unlikely pair tries to survive in the town of Defiance.

Check out Making of Defiance Chapter 6: Nolan and Irisa:

What’d you think? I’m definitely ready to check out this show (and the game). Are you?

The Last of Us "Development Series Episode 1: Hush" Video »


Dev diaries often fall somewhere between "mildly interesting" and "total fluff," but you might be interested in this behind-the-scenes clip from Naughty Dog for The Last of Us. Little is shown in the way of new gameplay, but the three-minute short takes a closer look at the origin of the game's infected.

The Last of Us is set in a post-apocalyptic world that's been torn apart by a global plague triggered by a deadly fungus. It spreads via spores released by the infected at their most advanced stage, a point at which the human form has become little more than a shell that houses the plague. Cheerful stuff, right?

The Last of Us comes to PlayStation 3 consoles on May 7, 2013.

The final multiplayer DLC pack for Mass Effect 3, called Reckoning, arrives today, February 26, 2013, and a new trailer is here to celebrate the occasion. BioWare livestreamed a look at the content a few days in advance of the release, and one NeoGAF poster took the time to hammer out all of the details, for those who are curious (via Destructoid).

The pack adds six new characters to the game, including a Collector Adept and an oversized Geth Juggernaut Soldier (think Geth Primes). There's also an equally massive hammer-wielding Krogan. The pack also adds six new weapons to the multiplayer mode and an assortment of new equipment that you can use to power up your gear. Check out that NeoGAF post for a full tally of what's been added to ME3's multiplayer for free since launch. It's pretty impressive.

Conan O'Brien's latest Clueless Gamer review for Tomb Raider might have just single-handedly set back the "sexism in games" conversation by 20 years. Watch the entire segment as if it's satire (since it is) and it hurts a little bit less. 

Conan seems to like Lara Croft's latest adventure. He's terrible at PLAYING it, and manages to impale the shipwrecked explorer through the throat numerous times on an unfortunately positioned tree branch. But his review score is... positive? I think? See for yourself.

Bugbear Entertainment, the developer of the FlatOut series and, more recently, Ridge Racer: Unbounded, is teasing its next "car game" with a pretty but non-revealing trailer. The video up top shows off a symphony of vehicular destruction that is apparently all in-game footage, according to Bugbear.

FlatOut is the most likely contender for a revival from the studio, though that has always been a destruction-focused racing game whereas the above clip seems to be more in the realm of a demolition derby. A post on Bugbear's website specifically refers to the project as a "demolition derby racing game," coming to PC and "yet to be announced platforms."

Keep up with this one on its just-launched official website, at www.nextcargame.com.

It's always a great day when you get to see Freddie Wong working his magic, and this latest -- First Person Mario: Endgame -- is damn impressive. Think back to your days with the SNES and that time when you finally reached the late stages of Super Mario Bros. 3. Get that memory in your head and then watch this two-minute short.

You're looking at the final stage of SMB3 played from a first-person perspective, bolstered by graphics on par with what you'd expect from Unreal Engine 3. It's pretty. And dizzying. This would be tough to play, to say the least. You can follow along with original footage in the top left corner of the screen. Neat stuff. Give it a look.

Sony gave a first look at Killzone: Shadow Fall during its PlayStation Meeting 2013 earlier this week, but late night host Jimmy Fallon actually got to get his hands on it on live TV. Both he and actor Anthony Anderson don't exactly show off any serious skills, but hey! Non-Sony, non-NDA'ed humans have played the PS4 and lived to tell the tale!

It was pretty clear at the Sony event that Killzone really was a live demo, but this Fallon appearance proves it beyond any doubt. It's the same chunk of game that was revealed at the PlayStation Meeting (no surprises there), so don't expect to see new footage. They do call attention to a slow-mo feature -- though it's not clear if this is a debug option for demo purposes only -- and you get to see a lot of melee kills. Shadow Fall is definitely looking sharp.


Gears of War Judgment "The Guts of Gears: Multiplayer" Gameplay Trailer »


The prequel campaign in Gears of War: Judgment promises to satisfy longtime fans of the series on the story side, but for many, multiplayer is where the fun really begins. This new, Baird-hosted trailer runs through an assortment of facts and figures covering Judgment's online play, revealing a few tidbits that hadn't been discussed much previously.

Versus, for example, offers Team Deathmatch, Free-For-All, and Domination (think Call of Duty) match types. There's also a peek at the Markza rifle, a new standard loadout weapon for sharpshooters with a medium-range sniper scope and more stopping power than your typical assault rifle. Pass sentence on Gears of War: Judgment yourself when the game arrives on March 19, 2013.





Assassin's Creed 3 "The Tyranny of King Washington: The Infamy" Launch Trailer »


Today sees the release of The Tyranny of King Washington: The Infamy, the first of three episodes in a solo play-focused DLC campaign for Assassin's Creed 3. Ubisoft's alternate history story -- because, you know, that stuff with Connor Kenway is TOTALLY true -- posits that George Washington establishes himself as a monarch in the post-Revolutionary War America.

Two more episodes -- The Betrayal and The Redemption -- will follow on March 19 and April 23, 2013, respectively. They'll be available individually for $9.99 / 800 MS Points or as part of the $29.99 / 2,400 MS Point Season Pass. Get a peek at the first DLC episode in the launch trailer up top.

Halo 4 "Majestic Map Pack" Behind The Scenes Video »


The Majestic DLC pack for Halo 4 will be released on February 25, 2013, Microsoft confirms. This second of three planned War Games Map Packs brings three new multiplayer maps into the game along with two Majestic-specific playlists and a new free-for-all game type, Infinity Rumble (basically, FFA with ordnance drops), that will be exclusive to Majestic "for a limited time."

The Majestic DLC, developed by Certain Affinity, is filled out by small- to mid-sized maps that are all playable in small team and free-for-all modes. Landfall brings the fighting to a war-torn city's port authority, Monolith is an arena-style map set on a wide-open asteroid, and Skyline offers close-quarters rooftop action.

Majestic will be available for 800 MS Points, though those who bought Halo 4's Limited Edition release are entitled to it as a free download, part of their War Games Map Pass. The Map Pass can also be purchased separately, for 2,000 MS Points.




BioShock Infinite "Lamb of Columbia" Cinematic Trailer »


Irrational Games has its marketing machine cranked up to 11 now on BioShock Infinite, with a new trailer to greet you today only days after the latest 'Truth From Legend' mockudoc appeared. This 'Lamb of Columbia' trailer is all about Elizabeth and her unique role in the floating city of Columbia.

This trailer is much more straightforward than the neat Truth From Legend shorts have been, but there's not much to complain about. BioShock Infinite is in stores on March 26, 2013 -- delayed a full month from the release that had been previously set -- and any fresh look helps to cut down on the pain of waiting.

A newly released trailer celebrates the fact that season two of the very strong Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series from filmmaker Kevin Tancharoen is almost here. Season one of Legacy launched in April 2011 and ran for nine episodes, covering stories for a variety of characters in the MK universe.

It's looking like season two will stick to a similarly far-ranging format, with the trailer running through a sizable roster of cast members pulled from the popular fighting game. There's no word on when season two will begin -- the trailer ends with the text "Koming soon" -- though we'll surely be hearing more soon as the launch draws closer.

Destiny is here. Bungie Studios has finally let loose with the first details on its new, post-Halo sci-fi universe. A press release describes the game as "an ambitious evolution of the first-person action genre that brings gamers together in a shared, persistent world." As you might expect, this is one of those upcoming games that requires an always-on Internet connection.

Early prevews describe a game universe that blends first-person shooting action with RPG progression and profile customization. Players take the role of Guardians in Earth's last city, though visiting other planets -- from "the red dune of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus" -- appears to be a big part of the game as well. The aim is to bring cooperative, competitive, and social elements together, much like other MMO games do.

Get your first peek at Destiny right now in the video doc up top. You can also head over to Bungie's newly launched Destiny website for more details.
