One year later, ReCore's finally pretty good

Today, September 13, is the one-year anniversary of ReCore's release. In our review, I scored it a 4 out of 10, citing a ton of technical issues and a needlessly drawn-out end-game as factors that overshadowed how good the first two-thirds ...

The Crew 2 touches down in March 2018

By the time The Crew 2 releases on March 16, 2018, I'll be ready to dig into another open-world racer. I spent a stupid amount of time screwing around the scaled-down USA and grinding up my stats in The Crew, and even though the sequel w...

What's up with ReCore? We find out in five days

You'd be forgiven if you thought ReCore was dead. For months now, it's existed akin to a heart rate monitor that blips the faintest beat just often enough to indicate there's still some life left. We'll find out in five days what that ...

BioWare has plans for eventual Dragon Age sequels

Depending on who you ask, Dragon Age is either one of the best RPG franchises to come out of BioWare in a long time or a lot of failed potential from a once great company. While I never personally cared for the series, I do admire how the P...

Saints Row ruined Grand Theft Auto for me

My relationship with the car-jacking hooker-mugging series we all know as Grand Theft Auto began the way it does for a lot of people. Sometime when I was in middle school, a friend brought over a copy of Grand Theft Auto III. It was a weird...
