The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a brown, clunky, cash-in of a card game

Bethesda seems to be on a streak of trying to cash-in on already saturated markets. First it was The Elders Scrolls Online, and now it's the Hearthstone-like card game, The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Publishers can't help but see the amou...

We’re drowning in a sea of MOBAs. Dota 2, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Smite, the list goes on and on and on. So it’s really nice to see Trion, developer of Rift and Trove, try something slightly differ...   read

Runescape update

Wow, Runescape still exists and just got a graphics overhaul

My brief experience with Runescape must have been more than 10 years ago. A friend played, I guess, and was playing. Maybe he was showing it to me in the hopes that I, too, would play; with him, no less! Instead, what I did was take over t...

Grasshopper's weird survival game Let it Die still has a pulse

For the longest time, I didn't know what was going on with Let it Die. I still don't, to be completely frank, but the third-person survival-action title has resurfaced and it's looking much better. Ahead of a playable showing this month at...

Star Trek Online brings back alien Nazis in its Season 11.5 update

Star Trek Online is pretty cool if you're a fan of deep cuts from Star Trek lore. Name an episode from any of the TV series over the last fifty years and there's probably a reference to it tucked away in the game somewhere. The k...

Tactical collectible card game Duelyst releasing April 27

MechWarrior Online is holding a tournament with a $100K prize purse

MechWarrior Online has been a lot of things to me, interesting experiment, occasional tormentor, and video game comfort food. But, I never thought I'd see the day it could be a potential payday. In fact, I still don't. Last time I played I ...

Leaked footage of Forza 6: Apex looks dull

Footage of the upcoming Windows 10-only, free-to-play Forza Motorsport 6: Apex has been leaked online by some naughty person and it doesn't seem up to par with the Xbox One version. It certainly doesn't look anywhere near as good as Micros...
