Battlefield 3 is out for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this week. What else do you need? What platform are you planning on picking the game up for? (Hamza Aziz)
Live action trailers come in two varieties -- amazing and embarrassing. I can safely say that this beautifully classy one for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim does not fall in the latter category. (Jim Sterling)
Blizzcon was this past weekend, and Tara was on the ground to bring you everything you need to know about Mists of Pandaria, the new WoW expansion, Diablo 3, and way more. Be sure to catch up and watch all of our vids.
By now, you've surely heard about GUNNAR, the eyewear company that specializes in glasses that increase contrast and reduce eye fatigue. I skeptically picked up a pair at PAX and I am happy to report that they are actually the real deal: it takes a little getting used to the slight curvature but the eyestrain relief becomes increasingly apparent with regular use. I definitely recommend them to anyone who lives in front of a monitor all day, whether you're a wannabe pro gamer or just a giant nerd like me. If you missed them at PAX they're now available at Best Buy. (Niero)
