Star Wars Battlefront's Rogue One VR Mission is short but sweet

The idea of a VR dogfighting game set in the Star Wars universe pretty much sells itself. The new Rogue One VR Mission for PlayStation VR, playable as a free download within Star Wars Battlefront (you'll need to own a copy of the base game ...   read

LEGO Dimensions' Sonic pack is better than some recent Sonic games

WB was pretty smart with their marketing for LEGO Dimensions. Rather than suffer the same fate as Disney Infinity, a series that had gone through three iterations into its 3.0 form before being canceled, they made the very non-WB decis...   read

Hearthstone's new expansion takes some cues from story updates

I've been playing Hearthstone regularly for about a year now, and I've seen the game change pretty significantly during that time. Hearthstone is Blizzard's most popular game by a large margin, and it's not hard to see why. Stream...   read

Pinball FX2 is even better than expected in VR

It feels like it's been years since I've last played a Zen Studios pinball game. I mean, my goodness! The list of tables available for Pinball FX2 stretches on and on. Where do you even start at this point? For as much fun as I've had with ...   read

Pokemon Sun and Moon's Z-Ring is cute for kids, won't fit adults

Remember when I talked about ordering a Z-Ring for Pokemon Sun and Moon? Well I wasn't joking -- it arrived over the weekend and I've been putting it through its paces! Alongside of some really janky instructions (which incorrectly ide...   read

The Ezio Collection represents some of the best and the worst for Assassin's Creed

One of the earliest moments in Assassin's Creed II has Ezio's gang of friends ready to brawl with rival Vieri de' Pazzi's crew. Vieri begins the fight by lobbing a rock toward Ezio. The rock hits Ezio squarely in the head and permanent...   read

Surprisingly, TrackMania Turbo's VR mode didn't make me feel ill

Ever since Nadeo announced VR support for its twitchy arcade racer TrackMania Turbo, I've been anxious about how that might work and whether I'd be able to handle it without getting nauseous. The game is full of impossibly large jumps, wall...   read

Blackheart's Revenge is a perfect example of what Heroes of the Storm Brawls should be

Brawls are basically fresh out of the oven for Heroes of the Storm, but they've already been pretty divisive. First up was the Punisher arena, which assigned random heroes to each player, and was generally very well received. Rounds were qu...   read

Blizzard has faithfully recreated the Necromancer in Diablo III, yet, is it enough?

After years of clamoring, the Diablo III community is finally getting its wish -- the Necromancer class, one of the most popular classes in Diablo II, is making its way into the game. No, it's not a Diablo II remaster or a Diablo IV an...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Varian feels underwhelming, and that's the point

When Varian Wrynn, former King of Stormwind hits the Heroes of the Storm battlefield, he'll bring a whole new concept into the game -- the multi-class character. Varian is a tank at heart, built with the principles of a World of Warcra...   read

I have concerns about Heroes of the Storm's Ragnaros, but he's fun as hell

The newly announced Varian and Ragnaros were both available to play at BlizzCon for Heroes of the Storm, but there was one clear winner. Yep, the Firelord wins out, even if I think he's a bit too overpowered for his own good and will need s...   read

Sombra was worth the wait, if you're a particular type of Overwatch player

Sombra is finally going to hit Overwatch after months of teasing. It went from "man, Blizzard can really do an ARG" to "really Blizzard?" pretty fast, but hey, they tried, they dragged it out, and now we're getting a real extra free ch...   read

Abstract platformer Bound looks astonishing in VR

Destiny's Wrath of the Machine hard mode doesn't change enough, but that's okay

Hard mode for Destiny's latest raid dropped this week. Some of you haven't finished normal yet (I'm a maniac, so I did my 15th clear this week). And that's okay! Because you'll have plenty of time to do it given that there doesn't seem to b...   read

Pokemon really needs to evolve based on the Sun and Moon demo

Only extreme vocaloid weeaboos need purchase Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live

The Crash Bandicoot/Skylanders crossover is handled better than I though it would be

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 takes DBZ gaming to the next level

Heroes of the Storm's Samuro is a gleefully deceptive assassin

It's about time the Blademaster hit Heroes of the Storm. As one of the first heroes that many Warcraft III players experienced (the Orcs kicked off the campaign), he's a natural fit. That goes for his aesthetic, combat style, and place...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider's VR mode is great for fans, okay for everyone else

Wrath of the Machine is the best Destiny raid outside of King's Fall

The current hottest game on Steam is League of Legends minus most of the shitty parts
