Gearbox just wrapped their main stage show at PAXEast 2019, and I’ve got all the goods you want! While it was obvious that 100% of people in attendance were there to see some BORDERLANDS action, Randy Pitchford and the teams of Gearbox had a little more to say.Read More
It’s been two weeks since the debut of KINGDOM HEARTS III, a game so anticipated that the only one that might rival it is Half-Life 3.

Ubisoft has dropped the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey story expansion, titled Legacy of the First Blade: Shadow Heritage. This episode, the second out of three total, takes place shortly after the first; we’re back to encountering Darius and his son (or daughter, depending on who you’re playing as) as they attempt to take to the seas and escape Greece forever. Unfortunately, another threat stands in their way: The Tempest. As much a person as a violent storm, the Tempest is yet another tool of the Order of the Ancients, hell-bent on finding Darius and his ilk.Read More

Detroit: Become Human - the most human game we’ve seen?
A Way Out, Hazelight Studio's new co-op tale, is a return to great form in storytelling.
The game, headed by the same brain that brought us "Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons," is a visual stunner that forces players to think about every choice they make-- while this mechanic isn't new to the gaming world (think Mass Effect, Life is Strange, etc.), the way it's executed in A Way Out is wholly unique.Read More
