The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare pre-order bonus is a Terminal remake

I like Nuketown well enough, but if it was going to be yet another pre-order bonus outside of Treyarch's line of Call of Duty games somehow, I'd be pretty pissed. Nope, it's a Terminal remake from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 --...   read

Evolve's new hunter isn't Zapdos like I thought

When I heard that Electro Griffin is Evolve Stage 2's newest hunter, I immediately assumed it was Pokémon's Zapdos. A griffin is a mythical bird-thing and "electro" obviously means electricity. Neat! I'd take down a monster with Zap...   read
