Halo 5: Guardians photo

Halo 5: Guardians has left me oddly cold and worried

I am not opposed to change. While certain circles of Halo fans find it popular to hate Halo 4, I've always appreciated what 343 Industries did with that game. Sprint was a logical next step to character movement, while loadout abilities suc...

Battleborn photo

Battleborn is made of MOBAs, spice, and all shooters nice

Mortal Kombat X is aiming to tone down the zoning game

I got to play Mortal Kombat X for a half hour during PAX Prime, and that made me happier than a pig in whatever pigs love to be in. After 5,000 matches played online between Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us, my anticipation was pa...
