Heroes of the Storm is getting yet another assassin in Valeera

The Heroes of the Storm team sure does love its Warcraft characters and the assassin role. Thankfully, so do I! (To a certain extent, anyway.) The latest combatant, Valeera Sanguinar, checks both boxes. After a round of teasing over the pa...   read

There is yet another Guilty Gear Xrd update coming

Not to talk too negatively about fighting games and their constant updates, but this is one of the reasons why I find it hard to get truly invested in any one particular series. Guilty Gear and BlazBlue have so many updates, sequels, and DL...   read

Resident Evil 7's trying to trick you into its cannibal-filled home

An inviting home is not always a home you want to be invited to. Maybe the design is spot-on -- an open concept and "Live, Laugh, Love" scrawled on the wall -- and that sounds pretty nice. But, the owners of that modern chic house, they wa...   read

Rocket League hits one billion games played in just under two years

Rocket League references are just about everywhere at this point -- it's creeped its way into pop culture, and isn't going anywhere. And a recent stat from developer Psyonix (which I still confuse with Psygnosis, RIP) backs that up -- ...   read

Divide reminds me of watching sci-fi '90s games over my dad's shoulder

Super Mega Baseball 2 makes me feel like a kid playing Slugfest
