If anything can get me back into Destiny 2, it's Gambit

Bungie's showcase of Gambit, the upcoming PvPvE mode for Destiny 2, did what it needed to at E3: it convinced me that I'm still capable of getting back into this game -- and this is the mode to pull me in. Not new storylines or loot grinds ...

Ori and the Will of the Wisps feels so dang good

Microsoft had a fairly stacked E3 press conference with reveals for Devil May Cry 5 and From Software's badass Tenchu-looking action game Sekiro. I'm dying to dig into both! But there's another game that's flying slightly more under the rad...
