We're a week away from Titanfall (god forbid we post about it less than twice a day) and while we know it will get DLC (because of course it will and because they've said as much), post release plans haven't been explained.
Titanfall is just one week from release, which also means we're nearing hype critical mass. Here is today's reminder that Titanfall will provide a much-needed feather in Microsoft's cap when the game releases for W... more
As a combination of the first-person shooter genre and the modern-day roguelikes, Tower of Guns is being pushed as a “lunchbreak FPS.” After playing, I can say this is a pretty accurate description, except I only ... more
In a blog post about the current state of Battlefield 4's multiplayer, DICE wrote that fixing netcode issues with the game is "one of the top priorities." I'd sure hope so -- few things are more irritating in competitive game... more
Property damages claims galore. They'd be headache, but they'd get you money. Muggings would be down (and then way up when muggers got mechs). You'd have someone to let your dog out to pee while you're work.
Plus you'd get to be an offbeat, meticulously unkempt bearded guy who's nicely dressed. Isn't that what everyone wants? more
We're one week out from the launch of Titanfall, and there's been so many leaks on the game over the last few days. All the leaks come from reddit, where a user has released several photos of the maps, including top down imag... more

Call of Duty Elite is going away on February 28, 2014 and it's not coming back. The service started with Modern Warfare 3 and gave players early DLC access, clan management, in-depth stat tracking, and the like. Many of these... more
Arma always seems like the reasonable next step for people who like Battlefield for its tactical or somewhat sim-like elements.
Apparently it's the next destination for those who enjoy Battlefield's dinosaur Easter eggs as well, because someone is making a full dinosaur mod for Arma 3.
I am excited for it. Dinosaurs should be the next zombie. Throw 'em in everything. more
Wolfenstein: The New Order is a videogame that has guns in it, and you use these guns to kill people. That's about as remarkable a statement as I could rack my brain for after spending three hours with game.
As much as some W... more
The original Thief was one of my favorite PC games of all time. It was unique in that it completely focused on stealth -- a mechanic that wasn't used often at the time outside of a few select games like the original... more

Anyway, imagine you are a waiter, working like any ... more
This actually looks really fun. Which would explain why it's up there with I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1 as the top-rated indie game on Xbox Live.

Yesterday Titanfall experienced some down time during the closed beta period. That, coupled with a lot of codes that were apparently never delivered by EA has triggered Respawn's Vince Zampella to turn this closed beta into a... more
