Comic book movies are the fashion this day and age, to the great pleasure of nerds across the nation. The moves themselves happen to be getting better in quality, to the point where some of the best in the sub-genre stand up next to other great films from every corner of Hollywood. Video game movies have not been so lucky. The good ones are few and far between. The rest turn us into unrelenting optimists, scratching and clawing for any shred of "good" from otherwise redeemable movies. Warning: this list will a lot like that.
The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V was a long time coming. People clamored for the PC versions, mostly so they could frolic into the game's guts and mod the crap out of it. Gamers were given an extra treat when Rockstar released the Rockstar Editor, which was a developer-created mod suite that gave players easy access to almost all of the games assets. It also included a director mode. It's been chaos ever since.
Whenever film and video games mix, the result is an absolute crap shoot. Sometimes, the mix brings out the best of both worlds. Often times, though, its ends up as a sub-par product that only disappoints hardcore fans of either medium. That doesn't mean that a pop culture gestalt isn't possible when the two meet, as evidenced by the following list of awesome shorts based on video games.
In an exciting E3 announcement, the team behind Beyond: Flesh and Blood revealed that the game will be available for Xbox One next year.

There was a great AAA presence at E3, but some of the most interesting and promising news leaking from LA last week was indie related. The steady growth of the independent developers' scene at the largest video game expo in North America is exciting and always yields some incredible concepts. Below is a list of a few worth looking out for.
A few days removed from E3, the United States' biggest video game related convention, is the perfect time to reflect on the many sights and sounds we consumed. All that usually means, though, is going back and rewatching the most evocative and memorable trailers and game footage that debuted twenty more times. Don't worry, we understand you. The following is a required re-watching list; these were the best trailers from the show, from every console exclusive and multi-platform developer who put their best face forward.
For a lot of us gamers who remember our little grey, analog stick-less Playstation controllers fondly, a long-deferred dream came true during Sony’s E3 conference. Square was officially going to give Final Fantasy VII a second look, and not in that really trolly, yet oh so funny way they teased back during last year’s Playstation Experience conference. Nope, Square is committed to making an honest-to-goodness HD remake of the JRPG classic. This should excite you. This should frighten you
Fallout Shelter was one heck of a surprise when Bethesda sprung it on us during its press conference on Sunday. A Fallout-related game we could play right now? Sign me and my iPhone up! The base builder is full of funny Fallout rhetoric, but the most humorous thing has to be the way each dweller courts one another.
