Review: Killing Floor 2

Over the last year and a half, I've been playing a ton of Killing Floor 2 (just under 400 hours) during its time on Steam Early Access. It's an in-staff joke at this point: if news about the game pops up, the team knows I want to read it an...   read

Review: Dishonored 2

Not much has changed since my first few hours in the world of Dishonored 2, and that's mostly a good thing. Beyond some problems with the general choppiness of the console version, Corvo and Emily have proven that they're a pair worth revis...   read

Review: Watch Dogs 2

Since releasing in 2014, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs has meant something different to almost everyone who played it. Though the open-world hack-a-thon is often critiqued for lacking personality and the graphical downgrade debacle, it sti...   read

Diablo III director: 'Creating a carbon copy of the D2 Necromancer would be cheating'

Just this weekend, I asked if a character and a special event were enough to carry Diablo III throughout 2017. You guys had an array of opinions, some positive ("good on Blizzard for supporting the game"), and some negative ("charging ...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

When something hits that zeitgeist nerve, it creates an "us versus them" mentality where participants who haven't even experienced something take sides. To avoid the stampede of rote "why [x government] is like Hogwarts or Westeros" think-p...   read

Review: NES Classic Edition

The NES was the first console I ever owned. Somehow I had saved holiday and birthday money for over a year to get it (the idea may have been planted by a family member) at five years old, and although I don't remember every detail of that p...   read
