The Games with Gold lineup for March 2017 is...okay?

I'm a little shocked at the game selection for Games with Gold next month. Usually Microsoft kills it in terms of big-name titles or critically acclaimed indie hits. This month, though, we're getting a bunch of nonsense on the Xbox One and ...   read

WWE 2K17 released on PC today, think of all the things you can do

It's hard to have a consistently positive relationship with professional wrestling. Anyone above a certain intelligence (like 40 IQ) is destined to become a "smark," a smart mark who understands that wrestling is fake but enjoys it on a mor...   read

January 19 is a big day for Battleborn

I'll admit: I've slowed down on Battleborn lately. I still think it's a great game that got a raw deal, but after 200 hours and a Platinum Trophy, I was ready to take a break. It was in my New Year's resolution to play more short games...   read

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

2016 wasn’t the best year for gaming, at least in my opinion. We definitely saw some solid titles come out (along with the end of a decade-long wait for two games!), but a lot of the major releases this year were retreads of tired the...   read

The BioShock trilogy is now playable on Xbox One backward compatibility

Watch (a very much alive) Sean Bean's soothing voicework for Civilization VI

As if Sean Bean doesn't already joke about dying in nearly every one of his films, he makes a crack about being "replaced" in the next Civilization, creating a canon death for his character, the narrator. It's heartbreaking! More triumphant...   read

Battleborn's winter update addresses a lot of concerns, neglects one crucial issue

"Why did Battleborn fail?" is a question that gets asked every few days on its subreddit. "How do we bring new players in and retain them?" is probably the more constructive way to phrase it. Gearbox has been paying attention to the communi...   read

Fans declare November 12 'Battleborn Day,' want to repopulate servers

Don't call it a dead game. The small-but-dedicated Battleborn fan base doesn't like hearing it. Still, even the diehards have little trouble admitting that matchmaking times could stand to be shorter and skill levels between two matchmade t...   read

Review: WWE 2K17

Look, I don't know what I expected. Whenever I talk to fellow pro wrestling fans about the WWE games, they often grimace before offering a handful of excuses. "It's not as bad as last year's" is a favorite refrain, although it rings hollow ...   read

Review: Mafia III

As I played Mafia III, I found myself thinking more and more about Assassin's Creed. Not the Assassin's Creed of today -- a series overrun with options and bloat -- but the original game. The trigger for my recollection is because Mafi...   read

Dang, the Civilization VI launch trailer is really good

Rarely do launch trailers feature actually launches, but Civilization VI's does. That's far from the only thing it has working in its favor, though. It's an extremely well-executed video and you should take two minutes to watch it. Because...   read
