    No Man's Reward

    Wow, the denial is strong in frieza.

    Evolve Dev: "I Don't Like People Thinking We're Doing Dirty, Underhanded S***"

    Personally "DLC" has always had a bad connotation to me. When I hear "expansion" I associate it with good value for good money, when I hear "DLC" I think of horse armor for $1.99 (thanks Bethesda) or content ripped from the main game and repackaged as an "add-on" (thanks Bioware). It's slowly...

    Dragon Age: Inquisition Review - Monumental

    I absolutely loved Mass Effect 3 and how it was really delivering on all the promises Bioware made over the years... until the infamous Starchild monologue. And discovering on my second playthrough that they didn't actually deliver, just swapped out different cameos and dialogue while dragging...

    EA: Dungeon Keeper Failed by "Innovating Too Much"

    To be fair, EA and Ubisoft have been leaders in the industry of completely pissing people off. Just when you think their PR has hit rock bottom, their think-tanks blast themselves a completely new basement. That being said: The Sims Social, SimCity Social, Pet Society. I give DK Mobile...

    Mass Effect 4 Is Playable, BioWare Boss Teases On Twitter

    Didn't work out so well for Command & Conquer, Battlefield, and all the other successful, long-running titles under EA's gentle wings, did it? More likely Mass Effect 4 won't be any different, it'll just be a rehash of the most popular game mechanics, amazing graphics, and a shallow story with...

    Of Three Types of Game Developers, Two Are Going Extinct

    So many unkind words I can use to describe this article, but I think the least offensive will be "self serving". I may not be a fan of how publishers and developers chase after trends and favor sequels with incremental improvements, but I would delusional to believe browser and mobile games...

    Jimquisition: Jimquisition Awards 2013 - BioShock Infinite

    I never paid attention to the pre-release hype of Infinite, so I wasn't let down while playing it (waiting for it to go on sale also helped) and I did enjoy it; I liked Elizabeth's character, loved the distinct lack of DRAMATIC BROWN PALETTE that seems to plague so many other games, and it had...

    XCOM: Enemy Within Review

    I like the new toys, maps, and sub-campaign that Enemy Within offers, so I can't fault it for what it brings to the table; only problem is that it does nothing to address the most frustrating parts of Enemy Unknown. Enemies still get a free move whenever you spot them, but your soldiers don't...

    BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Review

    The Season Pass gives you golden skins for two guns, a few extra tonics, Clash in the Clouds ($5), Burial At Sea Episode 1 ($15) and Burial At Sea Episode 2 (price TBA). Here's the kicker: you're right, the early interviews did price BAS1 at $5, I remember that as well because I was wondering...

    Valve Working to Make Steam's Offline Mode Not Suck as Much

    That sheds light on quite a bit, I've always wondered why people complained about Steam's offline mode. I have Steam and a few games installed on a laptop off to the side (for those long trips), which has been on perpetual offline mode for... a little over four months now without any problems...

    EA CEO Wants Its Games to Fail For the "Right Reasons"

    Call me cynical, but even if EA improved their customer support, got rid of Origin (yes, it's like Steam, I already have Steam, I don't want yet another Steam clone or go revisit Steam's growing pains AGAIN), murdered any employee who so much as whispered "always online", and encouraged new IPs...

    Escapist News Now: Why Destiny Isn't Coming to the PC

    How the hell did I double post through capthcas?

    Escapist News Now: Why Destiny Isn't Coming to the PC

    Well, that's somewhat disappointing, but not entirely unexpected. While I don't believe it's a smart move to leave out the PC gaming market, that's their decision and I respect it regardless of whatever dubious reasons are provided. As for what system I'll play Destiny on? Youtube. I'll just...

    Battlefield Should Drop Singleplayer

    It's a sad state of affairs when the suggestion isn't to improve the quality of a feature, but drop it altogether. I guess that fits into the "do it right or don't do it at all" school of thought, so I suppose it's not entirely without merit.

    Microsoft Was Surprised By Xbox One Outcry

    "We were surprised" is the corporate equivalent of "it was a joke" on forums. Do something incredibly retarded? Become "surprised" at the backlash, use "surprise" as proof they didn't really mean all the bullshit they are on record for saying, play the well-meaning "surprised" victim of...
