PAX Prime 2014: Escape Dead Island Hands-On Preview

PAX Prime 2014: Escape Dead Island Hands-On Preview

The last words I expected to describe a Dead Island game with were “third-person stealth/action psychological horror”. But it’s true; in developer Fatshark’s spinoff to the zombie slaughter simulator, you play as Cliff, a college student rich-kid douchebag that decides to make a name for himself by uncovering the government coverup of ...

PAX Prime 2014: Dead Island 2 Hands-On Preview

Very rarely does a game put a smile to my face. Perhaps it was when I kicked a zombie with such force that it flew back thirty feet and exploded into a bloody smear on a house, or when I grabbed a walker by the throat and snapped its neck ...

Firefall Review (PC)

Firefall Review (PC)

Even though it’s been available (albeit in a closed access state) since 2011, Firefall has recently come out of its beta phase and onto Steam for the low price of zero dollars. After such a long development period, a lot about the game has changed. It’s still an MMOFPS, just as it ...

Kingston HyperX Cloud White Review (Headset)

Kingston HyperX Cloud White Review (Headset)

Big Bang, Little Buck You know it’s going to be a gaming headset when the product you’ve got in your hands is called the “Kingston HyperX Cloud“. That’s a name only a gamer could love (or make sense of, but only barely). Amid all the SteelSeries number-letters and Razer creepy-animals, ...

Titanfall: Frontier’s Edge Review (PC)

Titanfall: Frontier’s Edge Review (PC)

I may have been a bit too kind to Titanfall. While it was a fantastic game, two glaring flaws have become apparent since I started playing it way back at launch week. First, there is not enough content here to justify the $60 price tag. Granted, that price has dropped ...

Modern Combat 5: Blackout Review (iOS)

Modern Combat 5: Blackout Review (iOS)

Gameloft is a funny company. If you’ve heard of “mockbuster” films like “Snakes on a Train” and “Transmorphers”, then you’ve got a good grasp of what Gameloft does; they take big name games and turn them into mobile titles. Thing is, while they started with rather generic and dull affairs, ...

Battlefield 4: Dragon’s Teeth Review (PC)

Battlefield 4: Dragon’s Teeth Review (PC)

I’ve given DICE a hard time lately. In fact, I think the entirety of the internet has. The name “DICE” has become synonymous with “screw-up” to such an extreme that it’s actually a relatively common pseudo-verb uttered in Battlefield 4 servers. That’s a shame, too. After three not-so-stellar (but still fulfilling) DLC ...

Battlefield 4: Dragon’s Teeth Weapons Guide

Battlefield 4: Dragon’s Teeth Weapons Guide

Battlefield 4: Dragon’s Teeth has added a lot of really cool weapons to the game. Some are great, some are okay. Overall, you’re definitely more likely to use these than some other oddball guns in Battlefield 4. The purpose of this guide is to help you unlock them and know when to ...

World of Tanks Blitz Review (iOS)

World of Tanks Blitz Review (iOS)

If you’d told me back when the iPhone launched that I’d be playing World of Tanks on it, I’d call you crazy. Even now, after having held World of Tanks Blitz in my hands, manipulated a teeny little tank, and played the same intense matches I’m beholden to on the PC, I’m ...
