Google always does something awesome for April Fool's Day, and this year is no exception. If you visit Google Maps, you will be able to use the streets of pretty much anywhere as a PAC-MAN board. It will not likely last long after April 1st, so if you want to play, do so sooner rather than later. The game can be played anywhere there are roads on a computer, and in various places around the world hinted at on Google Map's support page on mobile devices. What are you waiting for? Grab a power pellet and get munching!

If you’re a fan of Super Smash Bros. or Super Mario Galaxy, you may be interested to see how the core ideas of each game collide in a indie game called Paperbound.

Paperbound is a unique 2D brawler where players can battle it out in some of the most famous locales from literature like Journey to the Center of the Earth, Inferno, and more. All players appear on the same screen with a fixed camera that lets you see the entire stage. From here, players can run along walls and ceilings, as well as several floating platforms with their own centers of gravity in a skirmish that’s equal parts Inception and Super Mario Galaxy. There are several different modes from which players can choose to alter the victory conditions of a match, but the core premise is a constant: kill as many of your friends as possible.

Yesterday we reported that a fan has recreated the first level of Super Mario 64 in HD in a form that can be played in your web browser. This fan project drew a lot of attention, including attention from the Big N itself. Unfortunately for fans of the venture, Nintendo has pulled the plug. If you visit the website right now, all you'll see is a formal complaint against the project, and the response from its creator.

Last November I went hands-on with a demo for indie game Axiom Verge, and I was quite impressed. The game, which developer Tom Happ created by himself over the course of the last five years, fits the "Metroidvania" style and definitely draws heavy inspiration from Super Metroid. Axiom Verge hits PlayStation 4 March 31, and will launch on Vita and PC sometime later, but is it a must-have or just another Metroid knock-off? We were supplied with a review copy, and I've been exploring every inch of the game to figure out the answer to that question. Hit the jump to dig in!

The popular and often controversial fighting series Mortal Kombat is back! Mortal Kombat X launches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (as well as an altered version on mobile devices) on April 14, and on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year. With the release date fast approaching, we're being treated to new trailers and character reveals on a regular basis now, and today the first TV commercial for the game launched. It's a slightly different approach to advertising that sees people spreading the word and rushing to catch a street fight between two legendary characters from the series.

According to Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford, sales of Borderlands 2 have passed 12 million. Pitchford guest-starred on a recent podcast with Microsoft's Larry Hryb, aka Marjor Nelson, and revealed this figure, which he said was brought up during a recent earnings call. The popular game, which was recently re-released as part of the Handsome Jack Collection, is the most successful game in the history of publisher 2K Games. Gearbox will be looking to top it when they release the next Borderlands game on current gen consoles.

The trend of the gaming industry is headed toward a future where gaming is influenced by virtual reality. Companies such as Valve, Oculus, and Sony are all taking a swing at their own VR devices, all set to release within the next year.

However, there is some skepticism about the angle of virtual reality. Among those who aren't convinced is Mike Capps, the former president of Epic Games, known for the popular Gears of War series. More after the jump!

LEGO The Hobbit released last year and followed the story from the first two Hobbit films. Warner Bros. originally planned on releasing downloadable content to cover the final film, but it has since cancelled those plans. "There are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy," the publisher confirmed in a statement to GameSpot. The game's story will now remain unfinished as it ends on a cliffhanger, but Warner Bros. believes that "The game provides an excellent set-up for the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s film."

Modders aren't quite done with Half-Life yet. The recently released "Brutal Half-Life" mod allows for pure carnage and outrageous amounts of violence within the Black Mesa Research Facility and its surrounding areas. The mod includes mutilation of corpses, Michael Bay inspired explosions, new weapons, new death animations, and a updated, even more gruesome blood animation. Brutal Half-Life also features nods to Doom, and hopefully it can satisfy fans of both the original Half-Life and Doom.

The long wait for Arkham Knight just got a little longer. The fourth and final (or so the plan goes) entry in the popular Batman series was originally slated to launch in 2014, but it was delayed until this year and later penned in for a June 2 release. That date has been pushed back again, and we can now expect the Dark Knight to return on June 23. The game was delayed because Rocksteady is "a developer that hates to make any compromises" and needed more time to avoid that. While you wait, you can check out a new trailer by clicking below!

Most will recognize Riot Games as the developers behind the massively popular online game League of Legends. Between working on new patches, skins, and characters for League, the developers at Riot have been having some fun with mods in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Mainly these developers have been working on putting characters from League of Legends into the game, even giving some of the characters their own unique move sets. More after the jump!

Telltale Games is known for creating games that mainly focus on storytelling with a "choose your own story" kind of approach. Last year, the studio concluded The Walking Dead: Season Two, and many people are hungry for more. At last week's SXSW Festival, Telltale's director of PR, Job J. Stauffer, spoke at a panel and gave The Walking Dead fans a vague, but promising, bit of information.
