Discord Distances Itself from Gaming

Discord is now your place to talk.

Discord was built upon the idea of bringing gamers of all types together. It's certainly a big factor that prompted my friends and I to make the move to Discord from TeamSpeak and Ventrilo however long ago it's been now. We were a group of friends that played a lot of games together. We didn't like the quality of the service we were paying monthly for from the alternatives and decided to give Discord a try. We never looked back.

Though the game aims to become a real genre defining moment for...
 

Review: Maneater

A fun, albeit shallow, gameplay experience.

Maneater is one of those titles that is just the right amount of dumb fun. It pushes the dumb just far enough that you are not overly concerned with its obvious shortcomings. I suppose that any game that places you in the fins of a growing, angry as hell bull shark that can mutate and grow.

  • Killing Floor 2 Takes a Cue from CS:GO with Cosmetic Item Pack Microtransactions

    Earlier, Tripwire Interactive announced some new cosmetic item packs that have a chance to drop while playing Killing Floor 2. Much like in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or Team Fortress 2, these packs will contain a fairly random assortment of cosmetic gear that you can unlock by purchasing a key from the store.
