: That One Time An Old Lady Tried To Get Luke Cage to Murder Somebody

Luke Cage has been around for 44 years , originally conceived as a character to pull in readers and money from the 1970s blaxploitation film craze. Whole swaths of his publishing history are filled with poorly executed stories cranked out on deadline, but even these offer some surprising moments of poignancy.


: FFXIV Might Finally Solve Its Spam Bot Problem

Over the last few years, Final Fantasy XIV has suffered from a public spam problem. In every major zone, bots would flood general chat with ?MONEY FOR GIL? ads, prompting players to switch their statuses to ?busy.? FFXIV's Tuesday patch made some necessary changes that allows players to more easily report real money transfer (?RMT?) spam.


: Battlerite, As Told By Steam Reviews

Battlerite is a new arena brawler that's been near the top of Steam's charts for a week, with no signs of slowing down. It looks like a MOBA, walks like a MOBA, and even talks like a MOBA, but reviewers love it because it actually isn't a MOBA.


: Comments of the Week 88

Welcome back to Comments of the Week. I'm your host, Dreamweaver! If you don't know who I am, then you've obviously been hiding under a rock these past few months, so let's pretend you're totally stupid and walk you through what this is. Just pretend it's a modern-day video game tutorial!

See, Comments of the Week is a compilation consisting of — wait for it — comments of the week. Mindblowing, I know. What's even more shocking? These comments are even categorized into three categories such as:

: Doom soundtrack now officially available

Ever since the release of Doom back in May, fans have been clamoring for an official soundtrack release. Bethesda was silent on the matter and, oddly, didn't even have a digital version for purchase. People just wanted to rip and tear at the gym!

As of this morning, you are now able to purchase the Doom OST from iTunes and Google Play; the OST is also on Spotify for streaming. My favorite track from the game is "BFG Division," but mostly because I heard that for 80 percent of the encounters. I think my game had a problem with music streaming.

: Hunting A Khezu In The Monster Hunter Stories Demo

Capcom released a Monster Hunter Stories demo here in Japan and while I expected it to be the same demo they brought with them to this year's Monster Hunter Festas in Nagoya and Osaka, it offers new challenges.

: Twenty Years Later, A Furry MMO Fights To Stay Alive

Twenty Years Later, A Furry MMO Fights To Stay Alive

At Furcadia's September town meeting, a hundred humanoid animals lounged on purple pillows in a lush, 32-bit meadow. Emerald Flame, Executive Producer of the oldest social MMORPG, was explaining Furcadia's largest update since its 1996 founding to the motley pile of furry avatars, known in-game as ?furres.? It was called the ?Second Dreaming.?


: Here's the first 20 minutes of Gears of War 4's campaign.

Here's the first 20 minutes of Gears of War 4's campaign. It's got scripted action, roadie running, Lancers, grunting, and very detailed explosions. Looks like the Gears of yesteryear(s), but with more hardware muscle behind it. If that's what you were hoping for, this video will probably make you pretty happy.


: Red Flags is a worthy successor to the Cards Against Humanity throne

One of the weirdest moments of PAX West 2016 for me (and that's a long list, just ask Myles) was when I was flagged down on the show floor to give the card game Red Flags a shot. That in itself isn't weird; when you have a yellow media badge, folks really want you to come see their thing, especially on the lower-budget sixth floor. The game itself wasn't all that weird either. You are assembling the personality traits of a hypothetical long-term romantic partner -- two positive aspects followed by a wacky red flag, something like "Starts every sentence with 'Actually'" or "Always dresses like a clown."

No, the weird part was my game partners. There was a representative on-hand from Skybound Entertainment to demo the game, but in terms of PAX attendees, it was me and a mother and son duo. Before that day, before a middle-aged woman essentially pieced together an ideal mate for her adult son right in front of me, I didn't know my skin could even crawl like that.

Red Flags doesn't belong on a convention floor, nor does it belong amongst families. It belongs with a group of smarmy 20-somethings, most of them inebriated, huddled around a dorm room desk. That scenario may not be possible for everyone, but as long as you get the important part (being drunk) nailed down, you should be just fine.

: Drive Girls looks pretty damn sweet in its first trailers

Earlier this month we told you about Drive Girls, the new PlayStation Vita action game starring a bunch of girls that can transform into cars. It was playable at TGS, but now the rest of the world is getting a good look at the game in action with a pair of fresh trailers from Bergsala Lightweight, a developer probably best known for its work on Bushido Blade.

: Blizzard should bring more Overwatch heroes to its other games

In case you haven't noticed, I'm not exactly the MOBA guy around here. Off the top of my head, I'm not sure that I've ever written about League of Legends or Dota 2. I wrote about Paragon once before we ever knew what Paragon was, so that hardly counts.

Yet, here I am talking Heroes of the Storm because Overwatch's Zarya is in it. That's kind of Heroes of the Storm's thing -- it brings together characters from all of Blizzard's properties and mashes them up in a MOBA.

The latest instance is for the StarCraft-themed "Machines of War" event on the Warhead Junction map. That patch went live yesterday, so it's available now. Go play as the pink-haired heroine, shield your teammates from danger, and throw the damage right back at your foes.

Maybe it invites too many weird canonical issues, but Overwatch characters should be in more Blizzard titles. I don't even care if it makes no sense. Torbjorn the friendly shopkeep in Diablo? Yep! An army of Reinhardts in StarCraft? Sure! A race of Hanzos in World of Warcraft?

Nah, I get to see enough other people playing Hanzo in Overwatch. I'm good there.

"I still have trouble with this concept of this company that was our enemy that we fought tooth and nail against, and now they're buddies," former Sega exec Tom Kalinske notes in a new GI feature. ...
