WB's response: read

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
