Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Review (PC)

Ranks among the best of the Borderlands franchise.

Right out of the gate, I must say that I would consider myself a fan of the Borderlands games. I have played through the first game about two times, the second game about three times, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel about 1.5 times, and Borderlands 3 at least once. I frankly cannot remember if I played through the third game twice, once solo and once with friends, or if I just played through it all once with friends. And really, the less...

    A 2022 release date is looking more and more likely.

    God of War Ragnarok has been rated in South Korea. This seems like a pretty decent sign that the game is on track for a 2022 release.

    This rating was first spotted by ResetEra user modiz. God of War Ragnarok was rated by the Game Rating and Administration Committee in South Korea and given an "18 and over" rating. Usually when a game is given a rating, it's a pretty safe sign that the game is complete or very...

  • EA Suggest Holding 'Healing Circles' Instead of Taking Stance on Abortion Rights

    Another studio too cowardly to take a stand.

    Electronic Arts is taking quite the cowardly approach to how they are handling a woman's right to abortion and essential healthcare. During a company-wide town hall meeting on May 24, EA management told staff that it could not take a stance on this issue, saying that "being an inclusive company means being inclusive of all those points of view."

    That is one hell of a take.

    Given the timing of this town...

    Time Loops and Space Whales Added to No Man's Sky

    Daybreak Cancels Marvel MMO

    Funds will now move to several smaller projects instead of one big game.

    Last year, a Marvel MMO was announced to be in development at Daybreak Game Company. This is the same studio that made DC Universe Online which still continues to operate to my surprise.

    Daybreak's parent company, Enad Global 7, says that instead of dumping a ton of money into making one big game, they will instead spread that money out across several smaller projects. Some of these "smaller...
