Have you enjoyed the latest adventures of Lara Croft in the recent Tomb Raider reboot? Do you want more of the franchise’s great gameplay? Well, despite having just sounded like I was doing an infomercial for Square Enix, I actually have some good news to share with you folks. Square Enix has just registered a trademark for ’Lara Croft: Reflections’, which is classified as video game software. Here are the details (via the US Patent and Trademark Office):

So, are you ready to "protect" Lara through one more run?
Since everybody loves lists and since everybody also loves Titanfall, I thought it was pertinent that I combine these two equally loved things together. And since maps are one of the key ingredients in a first-person shooter, I felt that would be a good place to start:

Last week Andrew Atkinson posted a great piece on the interview he and I had with Titanfall’s Lead Game Director, Steve Fukuda. I thought I would follow up with some more little bits of information we were able to gather from Mr. Fukuda detailing what’s in store for Titanfall in the future: Read more
Gamefocus recently had the chance to chat with Steve Fukuda, lead game developer for Titanfall at Respawn. Fukuda was lead designer at Infinity Ward where he was a major player in the production of the Call of Duty series up until Modern Warfare 2. Brenden Mernagh and I arranged to speak with Fukuda at the Titanfalllaunch party in Toronto. Read more
The Oscars are almost here but where are the video games based on these films that have made the cut to be part of the 86th Academy Awards? I decided that if the Hollywood brain trust can't develop appropriate video game tie-ins with their biggest and best films then I'd have to do their work for them. Read more
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall is an impressive little bit of DLC. I should emphasize “little” though, as it is a relatively short experience. Just when the story seems to get going it ends - or, rather, it “kind of” ends.
Dragon’s Dogma was released last year on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
In the year 1981 a decision was made which would forever alter the face of video games as we know them. A young gorilla named Donkey Kong was throwing wooden barrels at a spunky little plumber named Mario. What happened next influenced the level design and gameplay of most FPS and adventure games since.
The video game press and blogosphere didn’t really know what to make of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One when they were announced last year. Most of this confusion seemed to stem from the fact that no one really knew for sure if these next-generation video game consoles would offer the player anything new. Yes, there would be better graphics, better online functionality, a better multimedia experience, and a better controller, but would that be it?
I’ve often thought that what the animal rights movement really needs are some rocking simulations of animal life. I’m not sure Goat Simulator will offer that (I’m still downloading it), but think about this: imagine teaching a grade seven science class where you hook your students up to Oculus Rift VR sets, fix them with some haptic arm and leg bands, and send them out to join a wolf pack stalking caribou in the arctic tundra (Dire Wolf!).
Game Focus is proud to present its new podcast episode, a weekly casual talk between GameFocus staff members about the gaming industry. In this show, we talk about mostly the Xbox One and the PS4. Vince explains in details what happened when he reached Microsoft support for a problem with his Xbox One that unexpectedly died after less than 2 days of use.Read more
