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

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
