disney-infinity-toy-box-mode

"Disney Infinity" is probably the last Disney video game we'll ever need. Really, the folks at Disney Interactive absolutely nailed what the Magic Kingdom, as a whole, is all about -- imagination, wonder, and fun. Though it skews young, between 6 to maybe 12 year-olds,  "Infinity" gives players every tool they'll need to play make believe with some of the most beloved characters in Disney's roster. That said, if you're a parent or a Disney fanatic, prepare to feel it in the wallet.

Divekick

The fighting game genre is one of the most beloved, competitive, and intense subdivisions of video games, and it's also the most complex. From the basic concept of kicking and punching your opponent until their life bar runs out, the genre has evolved into multi-hit, tag team, death matches with mysterious creatures that can conjure screen-filling projectiles by doing an eight button combo move. While it's not clear where exactly things got so complicate, it's a pretty safe bet that it was around the time of the release of "Street Fighter II" and "Mortal Kombat." Those two franchises birthed a genre that has spawned countless games, which have grown and evolved over the years. However, there is one game that is looking to rein things in, and take fighting games back to a much simpler time. "Divekick" pits opponents head-to-head, using only two buttons, and one move: the divekick.

30 Helens agree: Nicolas Cage makes everything better. Including video games.

Case in point, a mod that Kotaku just picked up on, which brings the star of Raising Arizona, Face/Off, Wicker Man, and both Ghost Rider flicks, among other cinematic masterpieces, in the form of a flashlight in "Left 4 Dead 2."

Murdered: Soul Suspect

I kind of have to wonder if Airtight Games, the Seattle-based devs behind "Murdered: Soul Suspect," are feeling a bit cranky that R.I.P.D. -- the Robert Schwentke flop about Ryan Reynolds and the Dude being ghost cops -- not only beat them the premise, but also spawned a videogame of the same name.

Taking solace in the fact that neither versions of R.I.P.D. well particularly well-received, Airtight has released a new Gamescom trailer for "Murdered," which, gosh, is a title that gets right to the point.

razer-blade-header

The Razer Blade is kind of the PC market's answer to consoles. You have a ready to use machine that will meet all your gaming needs -- at home or on the go. Though all gaming laptops lack a certain bit of future-proofing, Razer's systems are known for their design, power, functionality, and ease of use. The latest model may seem like a second-string runner up to the Pro, but what it lacks in extras it more than makes up for with elegance and strength. Simply put, the Razer Blade is the industry standard for laptop gaming.

mirrorsedge

It's been a long time coming, and most assumed that one would never even happen in the first pace; a sequel to Mirror's Edge is indeed on the way. So why the wait? Did it simply take this long for whomever to convince the higher ups at EA that a follow up was a good idea?

Well, there's some of that for sure, but as it turns out, a proper continuation would have only worked with a significant upgrade in hardware. Basically, Mirror's Edge 2 would not work on the 360 or PS3,
