Battleborn: a great game with a fatal flaw

One year ago today, Battleborn released to the world. And sure, we have fun with Randy Pitchford's ridiculous tweet about it, but the game holds a secret not many know: actually, it is very good. It could have been popular. Heck, I think it...   read

Battlefront II will not have a season pass

One of the worst things about 2015's Star Wars Battlefront was that the game shipped with a season pass while being light on content. It would be one thing if the game packed a wallop and had players wanting to return, but gating off a bunc...   read
