Engage in psychological warfare with Shadow of Mordor's Wraith

You might've thought that Orcs were all fleshy and a good ol'-fashioned sword through the squishy parts would be enough to take care of them. False. Some might fall to the blade, but you'll need something decidedly more cere...

Review: Battle Princess of Arcadias photo
Review: Battle Princess of Arcadias
by Kyle MacGregor

A pastime needn't necessarily be transcendent to make for an experience enjoyable. So long as there's a hook, something to keep one captivated throughout the journey's duration, it's easy enough to look beyond some frayed edges and just enjoy the ride.

Memory spared: Freedom Wars gets retail release in Europe

The Monster Hunter x headphones Vita game Freedom Wars was originally only coming to Europe digitally. This upset some people. Maybe their internet access is limited. Maybe they don't want to spend money on over-pri...

Lords of the Fallen trailer: Lustful women and a moody CCR cover

Lords of the Fallen sits somewhere between Darksiders (#darksiders2) and Dark Souls. The trailer, with the God of War-styled heavy petting foursome, leans toward the former.  With the trailer comes the announcement that those who pre-order get bumped up to a Limited Edition, which just means some weapons, The Monk's Decipher DLC, and a soundtrack.
