Editorials 27 Insurgency has come a long way since its days as a mod and in full release, I’m happy to say it’s easily one of my favorite first-person shooter games to date.  But a big part of what makes it great is that it’s not familiar, it’s hard, and above all, it’s a fresh experience that […]

Why Free-to-Play is a Toxic Strategy Editorials 20

Editorials 20 Almost every Free-to-Play game I’ve ever picked up has managed to disappoint me.  Whether it’s League of Legends, No Room Left In Hell, Firefall, or Blacklight: Retribution, I’ve always come out of my experience with F2P games feeling like so much more could have been done if they instead launched with a tried and true […]

3 Ways Natural Selection 2 Enforces Teamwork In a Modern FPS Editorials 9

Editorials 9 My biggest complaint about most multiplayer games isn’t bugs or lag, it’s the players. The fact that there are memes devoted to players not dropping ammo or med kits in Battlefield 4 just goes to show how toxic popularity can be for multiplayer games.  Look at the Battlefield, Call of Duty, or League of Legends […]

Editorials 52 The bottom line, if you want to stop reading here, is don’t buy a gaming headset unless you want an all-in-one package and are willing to sacrifice audio/build quality to get it. Because of how much time I spend using headphones and recording audio, I feel as though I’m somewhat of a novice authority on audio equipment. […]

Battlefield 4 – Rogue Transmission: T-Rex Easter Eggs News 24

News 24 It goes without saying that DICE likes to mess with us when it comes to dinosaurs in Battlefield.
