Tomb Raider world transformed into a mobile puzzle game — Lara Croft has explored tombs all across the world, but rarely have her adventures taken her to the mobile frontier. That changes Thursday with the launch of Lara Croft Go, a mobile puzzle game. While it may share a main character with the Tomb Raider games, Lara Croft Go gets players to plan out Lara's moves to solve more than 75 different puzzles across five chapters.

'Angry Birds' maker Rovio plans to refocus on games after layoffs — Angry Birds maker Rovio announced Wednesday that it's laying off up to 260 people, a result of the company trying to do "too many things" in the last few years. The restructuring, according to Rovio CEO Pekka Rantala, will allow the company to focus on three core projects: "creating magnificent gaming experiences," "producing an amazing animation movie" and "delighting our fans with great products."

Grace Jones tears down Brooklyn with a topless Afropunk set (NSFW) — There wasn't much more than smears of body paint between Grace Jones and the crowd of Brooklyn's Afropunk festival Saturday night. The 67-year-old singer showed the crowd why she is still unstoppable, performing her whole set in a mix of body paint, headdresses and grass skirts.

Hyrule Castle replica took millions of Legos, 2.5 years to build — Rome and this Lego version of Princess Zelda's castle have one thing in common: neither was built in a day. In fact, 19-year-old Joseph Zawada spent two and a half years building his replica of Hyrule Castle, which he said was inspired by the version in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

A remastered 'Gears of War' deserves to have its best trailer redone, too — Long before game trailers paired serious scenes of destruction with somber songs, Microsoft paired the destruction of 2006 shooter Gears of War with Gary Jules' "Mad World." It was the perfect introduction to many on what would become one of the most popular and best-selling Microsoft franchises, making the Xbox 360 a must-get console.

'Friends' intro remade with 'GTA V' characters will be there for you — If your job was a joke, you were broke and your love life was DOA, maybe Trevor Phillips isn't the person you want in your corner. But in the world of Grand Theft Auto V, maybe murderers and criminals are better friends anyway.

Puzzle game 'Path to Luma' brings climate change to the forefront — Mashable Debuts exclusively premieres music, videos, artwork, trailers and more. You saw it here first! Whether they run on power cables or rechargeable batteries, video games have a codependent relationship with energy. So when a game asks you to think about the wheres and whys of your energy consumption, it's sometimes tough not to ignore the messenger.

The last bastion of leaked 'Fallout 4' video: PornHub — Fans desperate to share some low-quality footage of the upcoming video game have stashed their controversial video at the home of lots of other low-quality, shaky footage: PornHub. When a seven-minute video shot during a behind-closed-doors Fallout 4 demo at Gamescom made its way to regular video services such as YouTube, games publisher Bethesda Softworks yanked it down almost as fast as it went up.

@963Selina Thanks for the offer, but I don't do tablet reviews. :)

@Futterish @KyleOrl maybe the outlet should have just held its reveal? Seems like that would have been better

Aug 26, 2015

RT @gamespite: Sorry, hard-working video game PR folks. I really don't want to read your press releases about visceral shooters today.

Aug 26, 2015

@KyleOrl @avestal yeah, that isn't just a black mirror-level speculation now.
