System Shock and Skatebird Among Over a Dozen Games with New Limited Time Demos

DICE Nerfed the TTK Yet Again in Battlefield V

Almost one year later and DICE is repeating the same exact mistakes.

Back on December 12, 2018, DICE decided to adjust the TTK (Time To Kill) for weapons in Battlefield V. A lot of the changes made weapons a fair bit less effective at actually taking out enemies.

Features a look at Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis.

We seem to have yet another leak on our hands today. This time it's for the still not officially announced remake of Resident Evil 3. It seems as though the cover art for this totally not real game was found on the servers for the PlayStation Store.

A games tracker feature on Gamstat quickly embeded the images from the PlayStation Store and thus made them visible publicly. Since then the images were pulled from being publicly accessible on the PlayStation Store. It's a good thing Gematsu saved the...

    This trailer for Sonic Boom has it all. Sonic. Knuckles. Tails. That pink haired friend of theirs. Rose? Is it Rose? I'm pretty sure it's Rose. It has voice acting. It's got a scene from Dune. It's also got dubstep.

    Alright, let's watch it!

    Whoa, Knuckles, what did they do to you?! At least the graphical design on some of the environments looks like a step in the right direction. Hey, this has to be better than Sonic '06, right? There's no way this can be worse than that. This game will be exclusive to the Nint...
