Battleborn is insanely cheap in this week's Humble Bundle

Much ado has been made about Battleborn's fledgling player count, a statistic that's especially worrying given that the game launched less than three months ago. That number's bound to increase now, all thanks to a particularly fantastic Hu...   read

Evolve's website is counting down to something, but do you want it?

Every so often I remember Evolve exists. "How much DLC does it have now?" I wonder. "Did anyone buy the near $100 worth of DLC at its launch?" But I never really get the urge to go back and actually play the game. I had my fill already...   read

When it comes to Mafia III, we have to talk about politics in games

Politics in video games has been at the epicenter of a fascinating movement and anti-movement over the past few years. A reductive but simple view of it is that some people want change and others don't. It can be uncomfortable because the i...   read
