The Cruel World of Watch Dogs
The world of Ubisoft's "Watch Dogs" is a brutal one. You risk your life to save an injured thief, bringing him to what you thought was safety -- only to watch him get stabbed to death by a gaunt, skeletal crime boss. And it's a world that forces your hand. Need money? Hack the cell phones of everyone around you and get access to their bank accounts, along with information about their private lives. "Grand Theft Auto" never alerts you that the pedestrian you ran over is a single mom with a sick kid, but when it comes out on May 27 for Xbox One and Xbox 360, "Watch Dogs" won't let you off the hook that easily.

11 Insane Moments from Trials Fusion
The long-running "Trials" series is one that virtually trades on insane moments. But “Trials Fusion,” the newest entry in the series, ups the ante with new features, ridiculous new tracks, and some positively bonkers challenges. Here are 11 of our favorite moments of sheer insanity. Level 2: Turbine Terror. After the sterile environment of Training Program 1, Turbine Terror begins with a segment set in a similar environment. Then the doors open. Beyond those doors is a vast, rich desert vista brimming with activity and destruction — and the first of many really, really big jumps. Level 11: Shivering Isles. This cute reference to one of the most popular "Oblivion" expansions features a razor-thin pathway that's disturbingly prone to collapsing behind you. And it ends with your rider plummeting something like 20 stories to his death... accompanied by a helpful voiceover: “Notice to all visitors to this area: Be careful of long drops.”

Prepare for Battle: Titanfall
When you've spent the last few weeks playing “Titanfall” as much as we have, you know that picking the right tools for the job is a crucial step for developing a winning, robot-crushing game strategy. Luckily, no matter your experience, "Titanfall" has a loadout to meet your needs. Whether you're a brand-new "Titanfall" player or a seasoned vet who's been playing since launch, we've got some suggestions for weapon and ability pairings that go together like fine wine and delicately-aged cheese. If wine and cheese were, you know, explosive. THE NEWBIE: "Titanfall" doesn't allow loadout customization until Level 10, so for your first few rounds, you'll need to select from presets. Luckily, these are all more powerful than you'd think. Even more luckily, one pilot loadout and one Titan loadout are particularly useful for brand-spanking-new players. Pilot Loadout: Assassin: The Assassin's Smart Pistol gets a lot of grief from experienced players for good reason: It's a veritable XP-printing machine in the right hands. It locks-on instantly to any of the game's A.I.-controlled minion characters, providing the opportunity for multiple one-hit kills simultaneously. It will even take out human opponents, if you can stay focused long enough to achieve three separate lock-ons. That's technology!
Explore Uncharted Territory in Titanfall: Expedition
Get ready for an expedition, "Titanfall" fans: Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment unveiled the game's first downloadable content pack during a panel at last weekend's PAX East expo in Boston. Called "Titanfall: Expedition," it's got three all-new, all-awesome maps for you to wreck shop on, and -- best of all -- will be ready to deploy next month. These new maps represent the latest stomping grounds for the IMC Expeditionary Forces, who have hightailed it into the relative safety of Frontier space to lick their wounds after the Battle of Demeter. An uncharted world provides perfect cover for a new base of operations, with IMC's crack Titan pilots running simulations (incorporating what they learned back in Airbase Sierra and Angel City) to prep for the battles ahead. But when IMC's water filtration efforts reveal mysterious ruins in the local swampland, an archaeological team heads out to investigate some possible fortune and glory.
Gamer of the Month: Wayne Brady
Wayne Brady is a busy man. The comedian and actor first rose to fame in 1997, when he became a standout performer on the hit comedy series “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and has since become a prolific star of both screen and stage. After winning two Emmys for “The Wayne Brady Show,” he starred as Billy Flynn in the Broadway revival of “Chicago” and made some classic cameos on “Chappelle's Show” (hilariously subverting his “nice guy” image). In 2008, he released the Grammy-nominated album, “A Long Time Coming.” Now he’s got his hands full with not one, but two TV shows, a new version of “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and a reboot of the classic game show “Let’s Make a Deal.”
