Review: Strike Vector EX

Strike Vector was always a game I meant to check out on the PC. I heard good things about it when it was released back in 2014, and I’ve always had a soft spot for aerial shooters. But somehow I never quite got around to pulling the t...   read

Overwatch is holding a free weekend on consoles starting Sept. 9

Streets of Rogue is currently free and lets you smash buildings as a giant gorilla

The description of Streets of Rogue reads like a video game buzzword checklist. Despite this, the RPG stealth co-op roguelike released into open alpha today actually looks like a game that might be able to do all of those genres justice. Un...   read

The first (albeit very brief) look at Gears of War 4's Horde mode

With fewer than two months before Gears of War 4 releases, we still don't know much about Horde mode. We know that the game has a Horde mode, and, well, that's about it. Now, we have our first clip of it, even if it doesn't give us a ...   read

Years later, Nintendo Land is back on the Wii U eShop

Ubisoft shelves Division DLC in favor of fixing the core game
