Review: Flinthook

See how one of the best platformers ever was made

Even now Spelunky is a polarizing game. Some claim it's one of the best in the genre, others think it doesn't do anything special and has been over-hyped since launch. But as someone who wiled away many hours with my wife in its dark p...   read

Battlefront II will not have a season pass

One of the worst things about 2015's Star Wars Battlefront was that the game shipped with a season pass while being light on content. It would be one thing if the game packed a wallop and had players wanting to return, but gating off a bunc...   read
