Whoever wins, we lose
May 24
// Nic Rowen
Despite the positive reviews (such as the one by our very own Chris Carter) I've been hesitant to jump into The Witcher 3. It sounds great, but with a potential run time clocking in at 100 hours and up, I don't want to buy a...

Give me mods, or give me death!
May 08
// Brett Makedonski
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of modding. Those are our inalienable rights as human beings. Rockstar can't take those from us. Good thing it's not going to try. Besides, I'm pretty sure the right to bear mods is protected b...

Are you a taunter? I'm not. Okay, well, I try not to be. But then developers go and design achievements around taunting X amount of times, and it'd be rude not to oblige them probably. Or there's some jerk in Awesomenauts who...
