Mirror's Edge Catalyst: Free-running versus errand running

I can't remember a single character from the original Mirror's Edge, a game I love a lot. DICE's (Battlefield) unexpected cult hit, now eight years old, was laudable. The first-person perspective offered a refined, grounded feel when so man...   read

Mirror's Edge Catalyst recommended PC specs are rough

A pal just explained to me that 16GB of RAM is "the new standard," so maybe you're all immune to the sticker shock, but I've still only got 8GB of RAM, damn it, so a literally doubled recommendation? That's pretty big. I wonder how much lon...   read

What is the silliest ability you've had to unlock in a game?

Review: Star Wars Battlefront: Outer Rim

Outer Rim is a better beginning to the Star Wars Battlefront season pass than I thought it'd be. The DLC adds Nien Nunb and Greedo as hero and villain characters, respectively; four smaller-scale maps spread across Tattooine and Sullust; a ...   read

Star Wars Battlefront's Outer Rim DLC sounds decent

As attentive fans predicted, Greedo (A New Hope) and Nien Nunb (Return of the Jedi) are indeed coming to Star Wars Battlefront as hero characters. This franchise sure loves its kooky names. Greedo and Nien are part of this month's Outer Rim...   read
