Today marks my first time really looking at Paladins, the new team-based shooter from Smite maker Hi-Rez. So, excuse me if this is well-worn territory by now, but boy does it look familiar. The game comes across as a veritable hodgepodge o...   read

ReCore's missing fifth robot seemingly coming as DLC

Players who have put significant time in ReCore have noticed something that's kind of off. The game makes room for a fifth robot companion -- there's allotted space in the menu, references to the T8-NK frame, and five hunting challenge...   read

Review: ReCore

"Are those cores weighing you down," ReCore's antagonist asks toward the end of the game. Whether or not the developers realize it, it's an apt bit of meta commentary. ReCore is brimming with ideas -- some great and some not -- and the...   read
