  • Blog Post: Exploring Freedom In Mass Effect

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly seven years since the the first Mass Effect game was released on Xbox 360 (remember it was a Microsoft-published exclusive).

  • Blog Post: The Return Of Varric In Dragon Age: Inquisition

    Ever since I spotted Varric in the first Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer , I’ve been excited for his return to Thedas.

  • Blog Post: Breaking Down The Latest Dragon Age: Inquisition Trailer

    This morning brought with it a new trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition, but it wasn't just a lot of sizzle with no substance.

    Need for Speed is the most recent of game-to-film adaptations, and we wanted to know what our opposite numbers in film critique have to say about it.

  • Blog Post: Confessions of An FPS Rookie: My First Day With Titanfall

    I'll be frank: You're more likely to find an RPG or sports game in my console than a shooter. Don't take that to mean I don't enjoy shooters; the issue is that you have to sink time into any given shooter to master the mechanics - something I don't have enough hours for with my aforementioned...
