Review: Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris

Destiny 2 has an endgame problem, and Bungie has an image problem. We've been through this dance before with the first Destiny. The fans want more, Bungie says they're going to acquiesce, but they don't, at least not fully, and then in a ye...

Injustice 2's PC Port helps redeem WB Games and NetherRealm

After the godawful PC ports of Mortal Kombat X and Batman: Arkham Knight, I wouldn't blame someone for being leery when approaching Injustice 2 on PC. In fact, I wouldn't blame anyone for simply not purchasing anything from WB Games on...
