Shadow of Mordor is already a pretty game, but adding the HD texture pack and playing it on "Ultra" settings really takes it to the next level. Digital Foundry recently did a comparison that shows how brightly the game shines on a maxed-out PC. Only thing is: getting there will cost you an arm and a leg.
Blizzard's ongoing improvements to World of Warcraft have now reached the Eredar with a new look for the Draenei.
Konami's classic run-and-gunner is hitting iOS next Thursday, but it's not Contra as we know it. This is Contra Evolution, the a retooling of the original using CocoaChina's open-source game engine, and it's rather fetching.

This is only a test. A test to show off what kind of HD graphics the Wii U can produce. It is also a test to show off how lovely the game can look even if you're playing it just on your controller. I'd love to show you the HD version of this video, but, for now, enjoy this.
