Listen up, you pencil-necked geeks! I recently got my hands the PS4 version of Take Two Interactive’s WWE 2K15, the first iteration of the annual WWE wrestling simulation game since THQ finally bit the big one last year. Considering how much hype this game has received, and the brutally stripped-down inferior version that was released on last-gen consoles a month before it came out, I went in with my defenses up, cautiously optimistic. Thankfully, WWE 2K15 (mostly) holds up to its many praises, though it’s a long way off from being the perfect wrestling game.
When the first Hunger Games film was released back in 2012, it laid the foundation for a story of rebellion, a story of rising up against a corrupt and cruel government. Catching Fire in 2013 kept to that promise by expanding the world, as well as the role that Katniss Everdeen, AKA "The Girl on Fire," plays in all of this. However, it wasn't until this most recent film, Mockingjay - Part One, that we finally get to see these events that have only been hinted at before playing out on the center stage. There are a lot of expectations riding on it, both for Katniss's development and the story overall; and while there's certainly a more mature tone surrounding it, Mockingjay struggles to escape its Young Adult fiction roots and tell the story it's been promising since The Hunger Games.
Last week, rumors circulated that Disney had attached the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Peter Jackson's final Hobbit movie. That idea made a lot of sense, until earlier today when sources indicated that this was not the case, and that the studio has much bigger plans for the trailer's debut.

Like any year, 2014 saw its share of Call of Duty's and Assassin's Creed's and such; but on the fringes of all that AAA nonsense were a couple of games that went for something a little bit... stranger.
Games get canceled all the time, but rarely do we ever hear very much about them. Usually, they're canned well before the public is aware of their existence, with the studios quietly pushing the project under the rug (or recycling the work into new games entirely). These games however, failed pretty spectacularly.
Today we explore a few songs that we personally enjoy singing along to, and dive deeper into the reasons behind this phenomenon. Are there specific factors that determine whether we sing along to one and not another?
It's been just a hair over a year since the PlayStation 4 debuted in 2013, and with about 12 months of games behind us now, we can finally get a pretty good look at what some of the console's top titles are.
We've gotten our first taste of the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta, and it's likely going to prove more than a little bit controversial among the diehard fanbase. That being said, if you can get over the fact that this certainly isn't a return to Halo 2, there's a lot to love in Guardians, despite (and in some ways, because of) its tendency to stray from the Halo formula.
Despite having one of the most rich, vibrant, and popular fantasy worlds out there, the setting of Game of Thrones has been surprisingly lacking in the video game scene. If you're really itching to visit a digital Westeros though, there are a few options.
