Hell Yeah: Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is, without question, bustling with energy. It bounces around the screen with all the vigor of a wide-eyed puppy, eager for all your attention. Presenting a lovely hand-drawn version of Hell and oozing with juvenile, Ren and Stimpy-like personality, Hell Yeah will certainly draw your eyes to its antics. Unfortunately, shallow gameplay and poor design results in a hollow experience that frustrates more than it charms. Read More →
The Walking Dead: Episode Four–Around Every Corner is coming out sometime this month, and we’ve got a brand new trailer to get you pumped for its release.
The penultimate chapter sees the gang–what’s left of it, at least–finally reaching Savannah, Georgia after a long road. But Savannah isn’t the hopeful escape from madness Lee and company had been longing for. Instead, things appear to get even more dire for the tattered group, and the ultimate question will be asked: how far will you go to protect Clementine?
As far as I have to, Telltale. As far as I have to.
A new trailer for Forza Horizons has revealed a demo for the game will be released on Xbox Live on October 9. Additionally, players who play the demo and then purchase the game will receive a specialized 2013 SRT Viper GTS.
The trailer, which can be seen above, celebrates the in-game Horizon Festival. It also shows off some of the lovely environments in which you’ll be able to race, which include sprawling desert canyons and densely packed wooded paths.
Forza Horizons drops on October 23.
And now for a bit of news that many will believe is long overdue: you’ll finally be able to earn rewards for cranking up your Gamerscore.
A new program called MyAchievements will dish out rewards based on your Gamerscore. An Xbox Live Gold Subscription and signing up for Xbox Live Rewards will net you access to the program, which contains three tiers of prizes that correspond to a certain quantity of Gamerscore.
Players with 3000-9999 Gamerscore will receive a gift with an approximate retail value of $0.25 during their birthday month and will be known as Contenders. The next level, Champions, occurs from 10000-24999 and earns players the same gift as Contenders as well as a 1% rebate on any Xbox Live Marketplace purchases every month with the exceptions of Microsoft Points and Gold subscriptions. Players who crack 25000+ Gamerscore will be called Legends and will receive the birthday gift and a 2% rebate on any Xbox Live Marketplace purchases every month, with the same exceptions as Champions.
Microsoft has already implemented a number of loyalty reward programs for Xbox Live, but this is one fans have clamored for since the announcement of Achievements. Are you excited for this news? Sound off in the comments to let us know!

One of the trademarks of the Assassin’s Creed series is showing us events in history we already know about from a different perspective. The latest video for Assassin’s Creed III demonstrates that by giving us a refresher on the Boston Tea Party.
I won’t bore you with details of the momentous event, primarily because you should have learned all about it in 6th grade, but also because the above trailer does such a dazzling job of recanting the revolt. I’m excited to see what part Connor will play in the fictional retelling of that night. I assume it will involve a boatload of stabbing and hacking.
As if I needed to remind you, Assassin’s Creed III launches on October 30.
