You're a good Shepard. A well-meaning, considerate, kind, and benevolent Shepard. Well, at least 90 percent of you are. Other 10 percent? Total dicks. There's a fascinating (and optimistic!) split between Paragon and Renegade...   read

Much like Natalie Imbruglia, Respawn Entertainment was torn. The studio knew that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order needed a few more tweaks and some polish, and then it'd be the best it could be. Conversely, the ship date wa...   read

Yakuza 0 has had quite the staggered release -- Japan in 2015, the rest of the world in 2017, and then a PC port in 2018 -- and the final platform is just around the corner. When it gets there, it'll be a day-one additio...   read
