  • Blog Post: So What Makes Overwatch So Great?

    Unless you attended Blizzcon last year, this year’s PAX East was the first time to get real hands-on with Blizzard’s upcoming 6v6 team shooter Overwatch.

  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Far Cry 4's Escape From Durgesh Prison DLC

    Far Cry 4 is the type of game we love to get lost in. There's a wealth of animals to hunt and side missions to accomplish, making it easy to ignore the main campaign.

  • Blog Post: Five Little Destiny Tweaks That Would Make A World Of Difference

    I’ve been playing a lot of Destiny lately, and it’s one of the most peculiar games I can recall. It’s got a solid foundation and I can see greater potential, but it seems like Bungie completely whiffed a lot of the small stuff. The game’s gotten a lot of flak online for its poorly... More

  • 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...

  • Blog Post: Titanfall Beta Impressions: A Breath Of Fresh FPS Air

    Last night I had my first taste of Titanfall gameplay. Before we begin, there’s the obvious caveat that this is a beta and not everything is in or working as it may be at release.

  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Sanctum 2

    As you can see in my recent review , I was pleasantly surprised with Sanctum 2 – Coffee Stain Studios' newest tower defense game with FPS mechanics.

  • Blog Post: How BioShock Infinite’s Elizabeth Makes Her Mark

    When I heard Booker DeWitt would always have the lovely and energetic Elizabeth at his side during BioShock Infinite , I was worried. Not because I didn't find Elizabeth magnetic (I did), but whenever you are tasked with escorting a character through danger, that companion can become a burden. Often... More
  • Blog Post: Editorial: Why I Put Down Borderlands 2

    The rush of holiday releases are enough reason for anyone to put down a game that came out in September, but I stopped playing Borderlands 2 shortly after its release.

    About a month ago, I was scrolling through the comments on one of our stories about Resident Evil 6 .

    It almost feels wrong highlighting the finale of Portal 2 when the entirety of the game is near perfect .
