‘Mortal Kombat’ Vita Review
It may be called Mortal Kombat, but it keeps coming back with the regularity of an immortal serial killer in a slasher flick. After an April 2011 reboot, February saw the game come out again as the Komplete Edition, along with all the downloadable costumes and characters plus the 1995 movie.
‘Skyrim’ Will Now React To Your Yells, Via Kinect
We’ve spent many hours yelling at The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and the game’s always taken it in stride, pretending as though it didn’t hear us. Now it’s done playing nice.

‘God of War: Ascension’ Will Stage a Multiplayer Orgy Of Blood
Like a dude using a laptop with his pants around his ankles, Kratos has always been known for doing his own thing. The rage-fueled Spartan has gotten his rocks off by slashing enemies into oblivion.

His reward for those accomplishments is the devilish curse brought on by the Madden NFL cover. Ask Peyton Hillis how last year’s cover appearance worked out for him.
EA Tells Gus To Get Off The ‘Madden’ Bus, ’13′s Announcers Will Be Wonder-Phil
We like to knock EA Sports for releasing the same games year after year, so it’s only fair to give up some props when the developer recognizes a major problem and makes a wholesale change. While Cris Collinsworth and Gus Johnson are two of the best football broadcasters out there, they were boring and inconsistent in the recent Madden games. CBS ...
PlayStation Vita Is Cheaper, But Not Because Sony Wants It That Way
Sony’s PlayStation Vita has struggled out of the gate, with slow sales and a sad little trickle of software to support it. The most telling sign of the device’s lack of popularity is you just don’t see it very often when you’re out and about.
