35hSrKa

In what is quite possible the greatest headline of my entire journalistic career, Smite has debuted its newest god (to launch June 2nd, a week from this Tuesday), Ratatoskr. This little deity is a squirrel. If you think that’s all that needs to be said on the subject, you’d be right! But ...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Given a Cryptic Teaser

Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Call of Duty: Solaris? World at War II? Bah, of course not. Call of Duty 2015 – if popular CoD YouTuber TmarTn is anything to go by — is Black Ops III. There’s not much to go by in the trailer, but there’s a few quotes that dot the trailer that might hint to the theme ...

Borderlands’ Best: The Top 6 Side-Missions in Borderlands 2

borderlands

Despite the first Borderlands being a bit thin when it comes to creative side-missions, Borderlands 2 is the polar opposite: it’s overflowing with weird and bizarre side-missions to take care of, ranging from stealing a chest full of centerfolds from the back of a gigantic, crystalline boss to optional objectives, like turning away and ...

Borderlands’ Best: The Top 6 Side-Missions in Borderlands

Borderlands

Hey, kiddos, do you want a week-long series of Borderlands “Top 6″ lists? Of course you do, strangely discussion-prone reader. I’ve been in talks with another resident Borderlands fan on our staff who really liked the idea of going over the series’ strongest side-missions, game-by-game. Part of this is to “celebrate” the release of Borderlands: ...

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Review (PC)

Hotline Miami 2

I Liked Hurting People One thing that made the first Hotline Miami so fun was that it was an exciting action game the likes of which I had never been done before. I’d walk into a level, put on a mask, and tear the guards to shreds with a variety ...

Gigantic Hands-On Preview (PAX East 2015)

GiganticScreenshot-Combat-04

This hands-on preview is, well, not so much “big” or “a big” hands-on preview as much as it is a preview of a game called “Gigantic“. Of course, if you were directed here through the main page of the site, you probably already knew that. Needless to say, you’re probably ...

Blizzard’s cooking up some competition for Valve, it seems! As soon as I got on the show floor today at PAX East, I scurried for the Blizzard booth to get in a match of their new class-based FPS, Overwatch. At first glance, Overwatch is kinda like a MOBA; twelve classes ...
