People really love Dark Souls III. People ironically seem to love Shrek, the jolly green ogre with a penchant for defending swamps. There just so happens to be a swamp in From Software's latest, so I suppose it was only a matter of time bef...

Let's see someone top this Bloodborne triple kill

Destiny details new Trials of Osiris PVP mode, pre-mades only, no matchmaking

Destiny is eschewing the typical raid format this time around with House of Wolves. A lot of people are excited that raids aren't the main focus of endgame this time around, but personally, I just see it as a way for them to not drop a comp...

Shark vs. diver game Depth adds Megalodon Mode

The devil and the deep blue sea: Depth gameplay

Horizon Danger looks like my kind of PvP platformer
