    Bioware Says Anthem is "Science Fantasy" Like Star Wars, Not Hardcore Sci-Fi

    Science Fantasy, huh? So for Bioware the big takeaway from the ending of Mass Effect was "Hey, people loved this inexplicable nonsensical space magic handwaving we pulled off, lets do MORE of that!" I didn't buy Andromeda and I probably won't buy this.

    Pathfinder: Kingmaker is a New Tabletop-Based RPG Written by Chris Avellone

    There are many flaws with Pathfinder but I'll stick to the five that made me stop playing and running it. 1) It's not very well balanced. Some classes are very weak, others are very powerful. The same goes for races, feats, equipment, and other character options. There are many options that...

    Overwatch's Competitive Skill Rating is Broken for Healers Right Now

    I think you mean "acknowledged". Also, as a Support main in MOBAs this fills me with impotent rage. Keeping your team alive is often a thankless job, but now it seems the game itself is treating it that way as well.

    Destiny 2 Officially Announced

    Wasn't Destiny supposed to be supported for 10 years with DLC every few months? If Bungie is willing to abandon that promise, why should I trust them to properly support Destiny 2? It sounds to me like they're just going to sell us the same game with small graphical upgrades and mechanical...

    Hearthstone's Next Expansion: Journey to Un'Goro Revealed

    I predict there'll be a Druid card something like this: Druid of the Scales (3 Mana Minion, 2/2) Choose One: Adapt; or Discover a card in your deck Mixing both Adapt and Discover into a Choose One card is just the kind of thing that would make Druid both flexible and very interesting. Do...

    Overwatch's Lucio Heads to Heroes of the Storm

    Well, looks like Blizzard has officially decided to throw Brightwing under the bus. Her one unique trait among Supports is that she constantly heals nearby allies without spending mana. Lucio now does her job better thanks to Amp it Up, which is functionally the Gust of Healing Brightwing talent...

    Sing - Animals? Singing? What an Idea!

    Just watch Cats Don't Dance instead. Better voice-acting, better music, and a more meaningful message about fighting discrimination.

    Listen to Murloc's Butcher Christmas Classics in Blizzard's Yule Log Video

    The title should be "Listen to Murlocs Butcher Christmas Classics in Blizzard's Yule Log Video". Murloc's is used incorrectly in this case.

    Dishonored 2 Has a 9 GB Day 1 Patch

    Well, this article discusses a patch that isn't required to play the game. It's a texture / audio / loading fix but the game's playable without it. So, uh, they're not mandatory.

    Dishonored 2 Has a 9 GB Day 1 Patch

    If I remember correctly there's usually a fair amount of time between when the game has gone gold (physical copies ready to be made and distributed) and the release date. If the devs work on patches to improve the game in that time, and it's not something they're charging extra for, it's really...

    David Cage and Quantic Dream Return to E3 with Detroit: Become Human

    So, it's Total Recall 2070: the Video Game. No, seriously, look it up. It's the exact same premise.

    Blizzard Responds to Nostalrius Server Closure Complaints

    Pretty sure Blizzard can just say something legal-ese amounting to "We will license you to the rights to operate the Nostralrius server in return for one dollar per day. We retain the rights to renegotiate this price in the future." Protects their I.P. without shutting down the servers, and to...

    Blizzard Responds to Nostalrius Server Closure Complaints

    "Why not just let Nostalrius continue the way it was? The honest answer is, failure to protect against intellectual property infringement would damage Blizzard's rights. This applies to anything that uses WoW's IP, including unofficial servers. And while we've looked into the possibility - there...

    Blizzard to Remove "Sexy" Tracer Pose in Overwatch - Update

    First, there's a difference between something being offensive and someone being offended. Second, if you're talking about poor representations of female characters in video games, maybe you should start with how Tracer and Widowmaker wear skin-tight jumpsuits that already showed off their...
