Review: Forza Horizon 3 Blizzard Mountain

Blizzard Mountain is about as certain of a prospect as there is when it comes to add-ons. Take the perennially excellent Forza Horizon series and put it on ice. It's that simple. This works because any Forza Horizon ...

Review: Forza Horizon 3

You and me, Carter! We're racing for slips! And not the "now I own your car" kind of slips, but pink slips. The loser's fired and has to go work in some other corner of the industry! Wait, what? We can both review Forza Horizon 3? Oh, that ...

Gears of War 4 season pass detailed

I've only been a staff writer for a little over a month and I'm already tired of season passes. Why does every game require one? When something like Lego Batman 3 gets a season pass, you know there are problems with the industry. Tangent as...
