Battleborn DLC could give hints for Borderlands 3

We're on the cusp of the release of Battleborn, Gearbox's hobby-grade meta-growth shooter. Since it's still an unproven IP and Gearbox's other releases have been less than stellar, the game most on the mind of the people in the room at...

Here's another crucial Overwatch play that helps explain why it's so great

Every so often I see an Overwatch clip that catches my eye. A few months ago, there was a crucial Genji play that looked like something out of Super Smash Bros. This one isn't nearly as exciting, but it's cool all the same that it's even al...

Will Battleborn be the next Shadowrun?

At the beginning of 2016, I listed Battleborn as one of my most anticipated titles (as well as Fable Legends, RIP) and after playing the open beta I can easily say it still is. If you're not familiar, Battleborn is the game Gearbo...

Modular guns are the coolest thing from Homefront: The Revolution so far
