DICE is moving to monthly updates for Battlefield 1

Every few days I'll run across some wild gif from Battlefield 1 and think, "Hey, I should get back into that at some point." It hasn't happened, in part because I don't own the expansion pass, but it might soon. In a blog post, DICE laid ou...   read

Party up with a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass owner to play the DLC maps for free

DICE is looking to lessen the "friction" between Battlefield 1 players who do and don't own the game's $50 Premium Pass. As is, these groups are split off when it comes to DLC, but with the studio's new "Premium Friends" system, they'll all...   read

Latest Nioh update lets you pause the game

Just when I think I'm out, they pull me right back in. While the big "Wait, really?" part of this week's Nioh update is undoubtedly the newfound ability to pause the game when you aren't in multiplayer and summoning a co-op visitor, that's ...   read

There's a week-long Water Festival event in Pokemon Go

Swooping back into Pokémon Go for special limited-time events seems like the best approach for me, and this new one, a worldwide Water Festival, is of particular note. It's a way to more easily spot -- and, Pokégod willing, ac...   read

Killing Floor 2 adds a new mode, maps, and weapons

At the risk of reminding Zack that we played Killing Floor 2 together once, had a good time, then proceeded to never cooperatively* fend off the Zed hordes again, I'd like to point out that there's a free new Descent Content Pack out now fo...   read

Blaster Master Zero now supports the Switch Pro Controller

It's disappointing that not all Nintendo Switch games (within reason) support the Pro Controller. Steep price tag aside, it's a great-feeling gamepad, and I want to use it anywhere and everywhere I can with the Switch. It makes sense that s...   read
