Forza Horizon 2: Team Races Club Division Explained

ForzaHorizon2 Imagine that your Forza Horizon 2 Club decides to head into team racing and you come across a team smaller than your own. What happens?

Will Video Game Stories ever Get Better?

the-last-of-us-remastered-release-date_899x506 One of the biggest topics in gaming over the past few years is the evolution of how video games are becoming more like movies. Some see this as a positive because it shows the evolution and progression of gaming, while others see it as a negative, saying that it represents a culture that is trying to change itself into something it isn't.

While definitely a popular character, the consensus amongst fans has been that he probably won't make a comeback, because why would he? Snake hasn't been in his own game on a Nintendo platform in years, and there's no sign that that's going to change. Don't get rid of all your doubts just yet, ...

The Good, the Bad, and the Future of Battlefield

battlefield-6_690x345 Battlefield 4 has taken a lot of flak since its release almost a year ago. Although most of it has been justified, I can't help but get frustrated when people say the game is still plagued with the same problems it had at release, when that's simply not true. Now don't misunderstand me, I'll be the first to admit that DICE shouldn't have shipped in the condition that their first new generation outing was in, and that the ensuing support, or rather, the lack of support was inexcusable. ...
