Here's everything you're missing if you're not in the Gears of War 4 beta yet

A few days ago, Steven used his words to describe the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta. That's fun because we live in an age where videos take so much precedence over the written word. Still, writing about Gears has a sort of ridi...

We're two weeks out from the Overwatch open beta

This whole not-being-able-to-try-Overwatch thing has been a bummer, but our day will come. Blizzard is officially winding down the closed beta on Monday, April 25, so if you're still compulsively checking your email for access, you can stop...

Will Battleborn be the next Shadowrun?

At the beginning of 2016, I listed Battleborn as one of my most anticipated titles (as well as Fable Legends, RIP) and after playing the open beta I can easily say it still is. If you're not familiar, Battleborn is the game Gearbo...

We can pre-load Battleborn's beta on PS4, PC, and Xbox One

As someone who is mildly curious about Battleborn, I'm glad Gearbox is holding an open beta. It's one of those games where I don't think reviews alone will suffice for me -- I'll want to get more of a feel for it first-hand to know if it'...

Modular guns are the coolest thing from Homefront: The Revolution so far
