A new video game lets you fight as 2020 election frontrunners

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is the star of an upcoming video game featuring the frontrunners of the 2020 election — "Yang2020: Path To Presidency." The game will let the 2020 candidates fight for the presidency, with a fictional story mode charting Yang's path to office.

Though fighting games are inherently violent, the recreations of the candidates in "Yang2020: Path To Presidency" are obvious parodies performing cartoonish attacks. Players will be able to unlock Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and other characters, each with their own ridiculous set of special attacks.

This highly anticipated PlayStation 4 game is confusing critics

Kojima Production's "Death Stranding" has all the makings of a video game blockbuster. It's an experience three years in the making, the product of a visionary director launching a new franchise from an independent studio.

But after three years of mounting anticipation, it's still not totally clear what players can expect from "Death Stranding." Sony gave critics an early chance to dive in and see what "Death Stranding" is about, and the reviews have brought back rather mixed opinions.

There's no question "Death Stranding" is a clear departure from Director Hideo Kojima's last game, "Metal Gear Solid V." While "Metal Gear Solid" is a military-focused franchise starring a super soldier, "Death Stranding" puts you in control of a lone deliveryman in a desolate, post-apocalyptic that's wide open for exploration.

Latest 'Call of Duty' game sets sales records on PlayStation 4 and PC

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" had a massive launch, bringing in more than $600 million in its first three days. Publisher Activision Blizzard said "Modern Warfare" sold more in its first weekend than any "Call of Duty" game released since 2013.

With a new blockbuster release each year, "Call of Duty" is one of the best-selling video game franchises of all-time, and publisher Activision has doubled down for 2019 by releasing both "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare" and the free-to-play "Call of Duty Mobile" in October 2019.

"Call of Duty Mobile" saw more than 100 million downloads during the first week of October 2019, but that didn't stop "Modern Warfare" from becoming the top-selling digital launch in Activision's history.

Latest 'Call of Duty' game sparks  backlash for its depiction of Russia

Activision Blizzard's latest "Call of Duty" game is facing a fierce backlash in the Russian media for its depiction of the Eurasian country.

Despite being praised by many Western video game publications since its release last week, the title has not gone down well in Russia, which features heavily in the game.

The game has received thousands of negative user reviews on the review aggregator Metacritic, with users — many of whom wrote in Russian — variously accusing it of misrepresenting and even slandering the country.

On Metacritic, the average rating given by users to the PlayStation 4 version of the game at the time of writing stood at just 3.4 out of 10.

Holy sh*t – the new 'Battlefield V' trailer is as brutal as the War in the Pacific

You can forget about video games glorifying violence. All that went out the window with the latest iteration of the Battlefield franchise. The new trailer for Battlefield V brings us to World War II in the Pacific Theater and the epic throwdown between the United States Marines and Imperial Japan. The game appears to depict the actual desperate tactics and explosive fighting when East met West in the 1940s.

Get ready for a game that shows the bloody aftermath of banzai charges, flamethrowers, and what happened when two of the world's most storied, dedicated, and effective fighting forces went head-on.

Terminator in 'Mortal Kombat 11' is just as wild as you'd imagine

The T-800 Terminator made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger is the newest character in "Mortal Kombat 11," and the murderous cyborg is a perfect fit for the savage fighting game franchise.

"Mortal Kombat" is best known for its over-the-top violence and the T-800 certainly doesn't disappoint. The guest appearance features tons of references to the blockbuster film franchise too — when the Terminator is low on health, its skin will melt away to reveal its metallic endoskeleton, just like in the movies.
