  • Blog Post: Opinion – Battlefield Hardline Premium Typifies Problems With DLC

  • Blog Post: Replay – The Godfather

    In the second episode of Replay's third season, Tim Turi meets Vito Corleone for the first time. That's right. He's never seen The Godfather films or read the books.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition is a fantastic game, and we’ve written plenty about the things it does well.

    The annual Madden game comes out in the pre-season when hope is always high.

  • Blog Post: Opinion – Dragon Age: Inquisition Has The Best Cast In The Series To Date

    Dragon Age: Inquisition has my favorite cast by far. In the past two entries, I've only enjoyed a few select members from each game (cough, cough Morrigan and Varric), but I've never found an ensemble as powerful as Dragon Age: Inquisition, where even if I didn't like certain cast members...

  • Blog Post: The Sims 4 Producer Sheds Light On Post-Release Content

    The Sims 4 didn't exactly release with the bang that Maxis hoped it would.

Maxis has heard fans loud and clear, releasing... More
  • Blog Post: Games To Beat In A Day – Mirror's Edge

    A successful intellectual property usually lands a sequel within one to three years. Games that fall outside this window are usually one and done, or destined to come back in a much different way years removed from the initial offering. I thought Mirror's Edge would fall into the category of "loved... More

    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).
