100 percent gameplay was shown in a debut trailer shown tonight during the 2012 VGA broadcast. A doctor speaks to someone waking from a coma. Someone with a hook for a hand. A soldier. He can't move well, but is being guided by another patient as the hospital goes dark. Others are being dragged off and being killed. Gunmen move in. Attacks begin. What is going on? (Dale North)

Despite the success of its predecessor, I was not necessarily expecting a Dark Souls II so soon, and I certainly wasn't expecting to see it get announced at the 2012 Spike VGAs of all places. Amazing! I was actually convinced the trailer was for the next Dragon Age. (Jordan Devore)
May 7, 2013. That's the official release date for Naughty Dog's The Last of Us. That's one hell of a long wait, but I'm pretty sure it'll be worth it. (Dale North)
The Last of Us was given a release date of May 7 at the Spike Videogame Commercials, along with a new trailer. Today, Naughty Dog has provided that trailer to the masses, along with the game's official box art, and pre-order details. (Jim Sterling)
Creative director Ken Levine heard the cries and decided to do something about it. Irrational Games will compile fan art and internal studio art on its website, so that fans can print out alternative covers that suit their preferences. (Allistair Pinsof)
The year of our Lord two-thousand and twelve has been an incredible year for videogames. It's been a non-stop whirlwind of fantastic titles and reveals these past twelve months -- what a great time to be a gamer. (Dale North)
