In the beginning of first episode of The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse, a kindly shopkeeper convinces young heroine Elisabeth to take on his cousin as a traveling companion. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
“I was kinda hoping that Konami would take me back now that he was gone.” In a special edition of the Game Informer podcast, actor and screenwriter David Hayter talked about his “humiliating” replacement as Metal Gear’s leading man and how he really feels about the series creator who wanted him gone.

Here’s Nolan North, attempting a Eurogamer challenge where he does as many of his video game voices as he can in 60 seconds. A fun watch!
You’ve probably heard Charles Martinet countless times while traversing the Mushroom Kingdom. But it’s something else entirely to watch the man behind Mario actually play Mario.
It’s possible the people who voice many of gaming’s colorful characters will go on strike, depending on how a SAG-AFTRA union vote goes down next month.

Destiny is the Manchester City of video games: no one can talk about it without at some stage mentioning all the money that's been thrown at its development over the past few years. That's not about to change now or any time soon, because it's interesting to examine how it's been spent.

Batman and Joker are two sides of the same crazy coin, according to some comics in the Dark Knight’s 74-year history.

For years, anime fans have been complaining about crap dubs. It's either the result of amateurs or celebrities who simply don't fit the role. Now it's Japan's turn to nerd rage.
