Titanfall 2's jiggling butt physics like woah

While I'd be remiss to call Nic Rowen's excellent Titanfall 2 review incomplete, it must be noted for posterity -- to be able to look back and say to my grand-children, "Yes, I was on the right side of history" -- that Nic failed to mention...   read

Fans declare November 12 'Battleborn Day,' want to repopulate servers

Don't call it a dead game. The small-but-dedicated Battleborn fan base doesn't like hearing it. Still, even the diehards have little trouble admitting that matchmaking times could stand to be shorter and skill levels between two matchmade t...   read

Battlefield 1's update plans include a Suez rework and Hardcore servers

As an on-again, off-again fan of the series, I'm loving Battlefield 1. It's still early days, but I've had some exceptional multiplayer moments -- that charge toward retreating enemy forces after your team takes a sector of the map in Opera...   read

Shadow Warrior 2 gets a neat collector's edition that's limited to 5,000 copies

Lo Wang's classin' things up right now. Well, relatively speaking, of course. His name's still Lo Wang and he's still the protagonist of a game about a million dick jokes.  Shadow Warrior 2 is getting what its calling a Special R...   read

Someone put the new Doom inside the old Doom

Doom (4) for Doom is a mod that brings the weaponry (and ensuing upgrades), playable demons, and glory kills of id Software's 2016 Doom into the 1993 original's shell. The results are fabulous. The mod saw an initial release earlier this y...   read

Turtle Rock Studios is done with Evolve, but it'll stay online 'for the foreseeable future'

Evolve had a rush of buzz going for it pre-release, but the four-on-one monster-shooting game was never quite able to bring in -- and, crucially, hold onto -- players to the extent that developer Turtle Rock Studios and publisher 2K hoped a...   read

Doom's Arcade Mode is the ideal way to play the campaign

Doom is a really solid shooter. It evokes old-school level design with an emphasis on all-out action and not a lot in the way of fluff. The story definitely draws too much attention towards the end, but the game has a breakneck pace that ha...   read

Titanfall 2's day-one patch is a mere 88MB

Prepping a modern-day video game to be played for the first time often involves waiting. Lots and lots of waiting. Your console has to be up to date, and the game disc needs to install, and you can't forget about the day-one update, many o...   read

Husk is a Polish take on Silent Hill, and I'm fascinated

Doom looks ripe for a replay with Arcade mode

I played Doom once and adored it. Then I went straight back in to mop up the collectibles, and continued having a good time. Next it was on to the multiplayer, which didn't do much for me, and I've since been meaning to play the campaign a...   read

Here's how Killing Floor 2 looks running on PS4 Pro

I had forgotten that the PlayStation 4 Pro is coming out this year. Part of that stems from my lack of a 4K television now and into the foreseeable future, part of it has to do with the not exactly long list of games that'll see visual enh...   read
