Robocop, Titanfall, and Final Fantasy All at the Same Place

Their current publishing output may not be making folks happy. iOS releases like Final Fantasy VI may feel like some kind of bad joke. But, y'know what, the one arena where it feels like Square Enix can do no wrong is with their wonderful, wonderful toys. » 2/17/14 3:55pm 2/17/14 3:55pm

The Robocop remake will shock you because it's so damn awesome

The Robocop remake, out in theaters today, is a pitch-perfect, badass update of a movie that is practically legendary.

They Made A RoboCop Game Out Of Deer Hunter, And It's Not Bad

You're not fooling anyone, Glu Mobile. The official RoboCop game you put together for the new movie is obviously a slightly more action-oriented take on the oddly-popular Deer Hunter 2014. Not a bad choice. » 1/09/14 3:46pm 1/09/14 3:46pm

It's About Time We Got A New RoboCop Video Game

If you ask me they should have just re-released the amazing 1989 arcade RoboCop arcade game with character sprites from the new movie, but I'll take a free-to-play mobile shooter from Glu Mobile in a pinch. » 1/07/14 10:40am 1/07/14 10:40am
