There's now a 10-hour demo for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has slipped out of my nightly rotation, but I clocked I don't even wanna know how many hours when I was still actively playing. If you were thinking of getting into the wacky shooter but haven't committe...

#Icarus is the new #Darksiders2

I spent part of my day playing the Mirror's Edge Catalyst beta. Pretty good! I'm basically in agreement with Steven's recent preview. Outside some of the junk that DICE shoved in, probably at the behest of EA to satiate the masses that...

 
HANDS-ON STE-VIEWS
I can't remember a single character from the original Mirror's Edge, a game I love a lot. DICE's (Battlefield) unexpected cult hit, now eight years old, was laudable. The first-person perspective offered a refined, grounded f...   read

Mirror's Edge Catalyst recommended PC specs are rough

A pal just explained to me that 16GB of RAM is "the new standard," so maybe you're all immune to the sticker shock, but I've still only got 8GB of RAM, damn it, so a literally doubled recommendation? That's pretty big. I wonder how much lon...

EA backpedals on pre-season NHL predictions, probably still won't be right

Before the beginning of the 2015-16 NHL season, EA Sports predicted that the Anaheim Ducks would be the eventual Stanley Cup champions. After a shaky start, Anaheim eventually got its act together to win the Pacific Division. EA rewards tha...

Hopefully Mirror's Edge Catalyst has a better story than the first

Like everyone else, I was disappointed with the narrative of Mirror's Edge, but it absolutely didn't break the game for me. I had fun treating it like a puzzle game, and saw the campaign as a massive tutorial for the real meat, the tim...

Poor EA! UFC 2 is now covered by losers
