Conan and Terry Crews play Battlefield 1 and pet bunnies on Clueless Gamer

I don't make it a habit to see every single one of Conan O'Brien's Clueless Gamer segments -- some of them come across as too forced -- but with actor Terry Crews guesting on this Battlefield 1 segment, I had to watch. Had to! Crews is jus...   read

EA secures flooded adventure Sea of Solitude

It took me a second to recall Sea of Solitude, but then it came rushing back once I saw those ultra-wide gifs again. This is that game with the flooded city (there have been a few those!) in which overly lonely humans turn into monsters. As...   read

It's here. It's finally here. After being formally revealed at E3 2015, we have some Mass Effect: Andromeda gameplay at long last. To be fair, it wasn't much of a surprise. We've known for a few weeks now that The Game Awards would ma...   read

Don't expect another Battlefield for 'a couple of years'

Battlefield 1 is here to stay for a while, and I wouldn't have it any other way. It has great bones! And, in time, they should grow stronger. I'm loving the WWI setting, far more than I thought I would going in, and that has resulted in a b...   read

EA and Ubisoft claim they're all in on the Switch: But will it last?

In the past six months we've been seeing a lot of praise coming out of Ubisoft's corner for the Nintendo Switch, and it's a whole lot of déjà vu. When the Wii U launched, they pranced on stage at multiple trade shows talking a...   read

Try Titanfall 2's multiplayer for free this week

There's a lot of pleasant fuss surrounding Titanfall 2. In a season of very good shooters, it might be the best shooter. It's great that Respawn seems to have found the right tweaks to the formula to keep this from falling flat like the or...   read

Titanfall 2 is on the right track with its free DLC plan

Respawn Entertainment has a commendable post-release strategy for Titanfall 2, one that will hopefully help grow the player base and keep folks engaged enough to stick around. The short of it is that "anything that has effect on gameplay" w...   read

Rayman Legends is now backward compatible...wait, what?

Here's a meaningless Titanfall 2 trailer that I'm so goddamn happy about

It is 2016, but I am flashing back to 2004 HARD. I'm driving in my 1995 Grand Prix, alternating between Jay-Z's smooth verses and Linkin Park's throaty choruses. Somehow, I know every word to every song on this EP. I am unapologetic in my ...   read

Recent Battlefield 1 patch seemingly takes out PS4 Pro multiplayer advantages
