DICE’s chief weapons designer has taken to Reddit to ask for any and all feedback about the guns of … Read More »

In certain dark places on the internet you will here it said of Battlefield that it is a tactical war simulator, and this may well be true.

It’s great to se e that consumers are recognising the value of Xbox … Read More »

So while some POTGs are absolutely awesome, it flies in the face of Overwatch’s ethos of team play. That’s what’s inspired Blizzard to look at how POTGs currently run, and how they might be improved in a future update. Speaking to Kotaku, lead hero designer Geoff … Read More »
