Titanfall

PSA: Best Buy gives you an excuse to get Titanfall


Xbox One version currently $8
Apr 24
For those rare Xbox One owners that still haven't experienced Titanfall, Best Buy is running a sale that certainly limits your excuses for not owning the game. As of now, the game is available for only $7.99. Seems like a good value to me, but I suppose if you hate fun, then it isn't. Titanfall [Best Buy] read

Project HON trailer

Project HON's mech combat trailer is amazing and confusing


Mecha got a booty like DAYAM
Nov 25
I wish everyday started with over 20 minutes of gorgeous mech combat. Project HON's impressively long trailer includes everything you could ask for from a game inspired by mecha anime: senseless destruction, giant guns, metal fisticuffs, weaponized grappling hooks, and transforming robots. Best breakfast viewing ever. read
