  • Visceral Games
    Sad day in gaming today as EA has announced that it is shutting down developer Visceral Games. Visceral was of course responsible for the Dead Space franchise, but also the fun hack and slash Dante’s Inferno. The former EA Redwood Shores studio, which was active from 1998 until its closure here in 2017, last shipped Battlefield: Hardline in 2015. The studio had been working on a single player, story driven Star Wars game that was being headed by Uncharted 2’s director Amy Hennig. [...]
  • Patriot's Playing
    It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these for the site, and so now seems like a good time to bring back this weekly blog series. Over the past week, and continuing on to this week, I’ve been playing a lot of Warframe. If you asked me a month and a half ago what I’d be playing at this time in October, I would’ve probably said “exclusively Destiny 2.” Destiny 2 is a very good game, and a very fun one. I’ve spent over 100 hours in it, and have [...]
  • WWE Absolutely Everything You Need to Know
    The latest book release from the DK Publishing/WWE partnership dropped at the beginning of the month, and as you would expect it’s a pretty good one. If you’re a fan of pop culture books, you may have seen some other DK’s other “Absolutely Everything You Need To Know” books for Star Wars, Marvel, and LEGO. WWE: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know is presented in that same style, and you can get an idea for what the entire book is like by the header image above [...]

    APOCALYPSE AWAKENS Archangel has returned from his scouting mission in Egypt with ominous news.

  • Strike Pack FPS Dominator PS4 Review
    I play A LOT of Destiny and I watch A LOT of Destiny being played. One thing you’ll quickly notice with most of the good streamers is that they use Scuf controllers, and thus have a slight advantage because paddles allow you to do things like jump while aiming. For those of us who can’t claw, paddles just make things easier. Unfortunately, the elite and Scuf controllers are relatively expensive for what they are, and not something everyone is going to want to jump on just for the [...]
