Remember when low-key-horrible publisher WB announced a $40 Batman: Arkham Knight season pass last week without even saying what is in it? Fun times, like the $50 doctor bill I just got in the mail after being assured everyth... read

The post-apocalyptic wasteland is no place to mess around. Whoever isn't trying to kill you is probably trying to get you to kill someone else. Even then, there's a fair chance they just might end up trying to kill you.
As I've said in the past, I'm glad Batman: Arkham Knight is only focusing on current-gen platforms. Maybe then it can reach its full potential as an expansive open-world game. On PC it's looking increasingly likely that ... read
Dying Light doesn't seem to have any intention of dying anytime soon. Three months after its initial release, it's maintained popularity through support of modders, new game modes, and wacky gags. Despite being widely av... read

Make sure you sign up for a WB login for that Raiden skin (sadface) Mortal Kombat X has launched, and with it, a decent amount of DLC.
If you count just one "five" and one "thirty" easy Fatality token pack each, the price totals $58. That's not including the $60 game purchase. On sa... read feature
Fatalities are, in most people's opinion, the coolest part of Mortal Kombat. In a franchise about ruthlessly beating up your opponent, fatalities are when these games are at their most brutal -- a blood-drenched pot of gold a... read

You do it to yourself, you do, and that's what really hurts They say you should never marry for love, but I always do. Every single damn time. I guess you could call me a romantic.

Decapitations for the YouTube generation When I was a little boy, Mortal Kombat was a tough sell around my home. Like most pre-adolescents of the era, I was darkly attracted to the idea of ninjas and movie stars decapitating each other in bouts of gladiatorial comba... read feature
