BioShock: The Collection rated in Brazil for current and last-gen platforms

You may remember back in September when a retailer leaked the existence of The BioShock Collection, presumably an HD re-release of the three BioShock games. It now looks like we’re getting closer to it finally making an appearance, as...

[Extremely Rock voice] Finally! WWE has COME BACK to PC

Like a brutally booked handicap match, WWE 2K16 launched a bit shorthanded this year. It released on the usual platforms of PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, but a PC version was nowhere to be found. Publisher 2K obviously wanted to fo...

Review in Progress: XCOM 2

I've only had a few hours with XCOM 2, Firaxis Games' follow-up to its 2012 XCOM: Enemy Unknown and I can already tell it's a different beast. At its core, it is still the same isometric turn-based strategy game it has always been, but a da...

$20 Season Pass confirmed for XCOM 2

Since XCOM 2 is a AAA game that exists, it is getting a Season Pass. This one, though, is a lot easy to swallow than the vast majority of publisher's "Mystery Passes" that I loathe so much. 2K Games is calling it the "Reinforcement Pac...

Big PlayStation Now update means 4 PS3 games you've already played

Okay, okay, I don't want to presume. For the same reason that re-releases on current platforms are fairly innocuous (people miss stuff!), it's not at all a bad thing that five (four new) 2K games just joined PlayStation Now. Especially afte...

XCOM 2 Dark Events offer 'dramatic gameplay changes'
