Evolve's new hunter isn't Zapdos like I thought

When I heard that Electro Griffin is Evolve Stage 2's newest hunter, I immediately assumed it was Pokémon's Zapdos. A griffin is a mythical bird-thing and "electro" obviously means electricity. Neat! I'd take down a monster with Zap...   read

Mafia III protagonist's life has been anything but a cakewalk

We know that Mafia III's Lincoln Clay hasn't had it easy. He's a black man in the American south during the 1960s (a struggle that developer Hangar 13 hopes to do justice with its New Bordeaux setting). He's also a Vietnam veteran. Oh yeah...   read

Battleborn is insanely cheap in this week's Humble Bundle

Much ado has been made about Battleborn's fledgling player count, a statistic that's especially worrying given that the game launched less than three months ago. That number's bound to increase now, all thanks to a particularly fantastic Hu...   read

Evolve's website is counting down to something, but do you want it?

Every so often I remember Evolve exists. "How much DLC does it have now?" I wonder. "Did anyone buy the near $100 worth of DLC at its launch?" But I never really get the urge to go back and actually play the game. I had my fill already...   read

When it comes to Mafia III, we have to talk about politics in games
