Capcom is holding another beta for Street Fighter V's revamped online play

About a month ago, Capcom hosted a PC beta for Street Fighter V's new CFN (Capcom Fighters Network) update. I put some time in with it and wasn't that impressed. Matchmaking, in general, was pretty broken for the first couple of days and th...   read

Relic releases a dev diary for Dawn of War III ahead of its open beta

I get the feeling that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is going to be divisive to the fan base. A lot of people seem to be complaining about a supposed "dumbing down" of mechanics or how there isn't anything new on offer. I don't necessar...   read

Fight for something in For Honor's beta at the end of January

It's not hard to figure out your motivation in For Honor. It's eponymous, it's right there in the name. You fight for honor, a prize of the spirit that transcends anything material. Honor isn't easy to attain, though. It's one of those cov...   read

When did team Ghost become such dicks?
