As expected, today was the day that EA revealed the new game in the Battlefield series. And boy was I wrong:
It's not Bad Company, it's not Hardline, it's Battlefield. And so close to the release of Battlefield 1, too. Well, the game looks beautiful and the action looks true to life.
I'm not as thrilled as most Battlefield fans might be. For once, I'm actually leaning toward the new Black Ops as opposed to my franchise of choice.
I feel that Vietnam, or even the Gulf War, would've been a nicer change of pace but I'll still try it out as part of the EA Access early demo. I may love it.
What do you think? Tired of World War scenarios? Tired of Battlefield in general? Let us know.

Activision Blizzard has just announced a partnership with Lego to bring the heroes and maps to the masses in the form of Lego sets.
Though sets haven't been revealed, they will start arriving in Spring/Summer 2018 with each being treated as they treat new in-game events. I'm sure this means cryptic leaks and and TONs of anticipation.
And expect Nerf adding some Overwatch themed weapons as part of their Nerf Rivals line sometime in January 2019.
As for me, I'm not so interested in having a Lego Moira, or an off color Tracer dart shooter, but I'm super excited to put together a miniature Route 66 and Volskaya Industries!

This is the final stage in the inaugural season of Overwatch League.
The meta has shifted. Brigitte has been released. This stage is running on patch 1.22, which means no Hanzo changes or Brigitte nerfs.
Its adapt or die time. Some teams, like the NYXL and The San Fran Shock have shown that even though Brigitte is the answer against dive comps. If you coordinate your dives, you can effectively shut her down.
And Kings Row is back in the map pool, so we are seeing a lot of Brigitte\Reinhardt\Zarya set ups being run on this map. Some with great results, others with not so much. It still comes down to coordination, for those teams who can coordinate, they win. For those who can't. They see the spawn door a lot more.
Boston has entered a slump. With their…Continue

Amongst the many skins and brawls and sprays and emotes and highlight intros that the next Overwatch Anniversary will bring us, we are also being treated to a new Deathmatch map, Petra.
I love the theme, I love the layout, and I LOOOOVE the introduction of destructible environments!
And if you want a spoiler, here's a video leaking the new skins, emotes, and some Petra gameplay.

THIS is why:
It just looks fun AF.

No Man’s Sky was released on August 9, 2016 from Hello Games and at the time I was blown away. Every trailer and video was like Christmas morning to me. I said to myself that this game was the future of gaming. I bought it day 1, was so excited to play it. Once I got home, I loaded the game and began to play. The game itself was beautiful, I started traveling to different planets and universes and giving them names like “Game Fix”, “Spanish”, “Verlane”, “Link”, and even “Embrace The Glitch”, it was incredible. About an hour into playing I started to see if I could join some friends so they could visit my planets and so I could visit theirs. I quickly realized there wasn’t an option for multiplayer in anyway. I got frustrated, even Bruce B got the game and figured out the same thing. Frustration quickly turned into resentment, if you could resent a game, that is. Either way, the longer I played the game the more I got bored. Hell, I was lonely out there in the middle of the universe…Continue
