Gears 5's Escape mode scratches the Gears co-op itch

In some ways, Gears 5's Escape mode is a subversion. This series has been so entrenched in Horde mode ever since Gears of War 2, you and all your teammates hunkered down in the, well, trenches. Stay immobile, pop up at opportune times, keep...

Gears of War head wants the Brumak in Monster Hunter

Here's a softball story that will almost certainly never develop into anything beyond "Gee, that'd be neat!" Regardless, it's a weird and interesting crossover idea. Rod Fergusson, the head of studio The Coalition and the lead on Gears of W...

My friend sold his Switch (which is lame because now we can’t play games), but he also just gave me his Nintendo account to put on my console, so now I have Octopath, NSMBU Deluxe, The Messenger, Onimusha, and a bunch of other games!!!
