January 19 is a big day for Battleborn

I'll admit: I've slowed down on Battleborn lately. I still think it's a great game that got a raw deal, but after 200 hours and a Platinum Trophy, I was ready to take a break. It was in my New Year's resolution to play more short games...

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

2016 wasn’t the best year for gaming, at least in my opinion. We definitely saw some solid titles come out (along with the end of a decade-long wait for two games!), but a lot of the major releases this year were retreads of tired the...

Review: WWE 2K17

Look, I don't know what I expected. Whenever I talk to fellow pro wrestling fans about the WWE games, they often grimace before offering a handful of excuses. "It's not as bad as last year's" is a favorite refrain, although it rings hollow ...

Review in Progress: Civilization VI

Many empires have risen and fallen throughout the history of mankind. What once stands as a towering achievement to human ingenuity and engineering soon becomes rubble, dust, and bones. The cycle repeats and history moves on; nothing demons...

Review: Mafia III

As I played Mafia III, I found myself thinking more and more about Assassin's Creed. Not the Assassin's Creed of today -- a series overrun with options and bloat -- but the original game. The trigger for my recollection is because Mafi...

Dang, the Civilization VI launch trailer is really good

Rarely do launch trailers feature actually launches, but Civilization VI's does. That's far from the only thing it has working in its favor, though. It's an extremely well-executed video and you should take two minutes to watch it. Because...

Review: Battleborn: Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion

For a lot of people, Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion is going to be too little, too late. Battleborn has been plagued with issues since its launch, from poor PC performance to a rapidly decreasing base of players causing long wait times to...

Battleborn's first story DLC is out today

There isn't a lot that can pull me away from Destiny: Rise of Iron these days (I'm much slower than Chris Carter is; still leveling up so I can take on Wrath of the Machine), but if one thing can, if even just briefly, it's Battleborn's fir...

Review in Progress: Mafia III

Mafia III begins with protagonist Lincoln Clay playing a part in a grand heist. It's not something we haven't seen before in video games, but it still feels kind of unexpected. This game's predecessor, Mafia II, spent far too much time...

Civilization VI feels like a new beginning for the series

Sitting down to write this preview was a challenge. That isn’t because I can’t describe Civilization VI or I don’t like the game; it has to do with the nature of turn-based strategy titles. They become so addicting that yo...

The BioShock remasters finally get a patch on PC

[Photo by Ginger Troll] A few weeks ago, I spoke about how BioShock Remastered was pretty crappy on PC. 2K had announced it was working on a patch, but never gave out a specific date. Thankfully, the wait for a playable release is now over....

Battleborn's new free multiplayer mode is out on October 13

Gearbox's struggling FPS/MOBA needs a shot in the arm to keep its community from extinguishing completely. The first story-based downloadable content (Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion) is set to release on October 13, but if the ol' player-...

Fuck up the KKK in Mafia 3

A lot of games have let us dispense of nazis with hot-leaded-justice, but what about groups that have since perpetuated the Nazi's occult-lunacy-derived racial superiority? Sure, the KKK existed before the Nazis, but Mafia 3 is set in 1968...

Battleborn is allegedly going free-to-play

Gearbox Software's MOBA-lite shooter Battleborn never stood much of a chance. It released in the same timeframe as the likes of Overwatch and Doom, and everyone's collective interest gravitated toward those titles. Amid low player...

Mafia III destroys more rackets than John McEnroe

Further proof positive that I am bad at this job. That headline is an extremely unclickable headline. John McEnroe references in 2016? Like, who's going to understand that? I cater to the four percent of people who understand both crime sy...

To get back some of the good will wasted via pennypacketed DLCs, Paradox should release a huuuge free cosmetics DLC, with new city types, new background, new ship types, and, of course, new portraits such as literally a cat in a space

 
CaimDark Reloaded

Tempted to buy AssCreed rogue on the current Steam sale, its dirt cheap, its the only game in the series I missed and its last gen so my pc can run it, but I seriously feel bad about killing my Assassin friends! Is that weird?
