The mission ain't over yet! We're re-enabling Overwatch [...]

If you love the Americanized Visual Novel experience, you might wanna give this article a miss until you’ve played Life is Strange.
So, I’ve just finished Life is Strange. Life is Strange is one of many of what I’m told count as “Visual Novels”, but due to the fact they actually have gameplay elements I’m just going to call them Chooseys.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, this year’s Star Wars celebration was the venue for the release of EA’s new totally-not-Battlefield-with-a-Star-Wars-skin-for-maximum-market-penetration, Battlefront 2. While many of the people around me express nothing but joy at the trailer, I can’t help but have, how should I say, a bad feeling about this.

As speculated, Uprising introduces a new PvE mode, where you play as 4 seasoned Overwatch veterans and their plucky new recruit as they journey through King’s [...]
Microsoft has yet to show any new detail about the Xbox One’s mid-generation upgrade- still dubbed with its codename Project Scorpio. Today changes this fact, as the folks at Digital Foundry, renowned for one their comprehensive technical coverage on games and hardware, got the exclusive look at what Scorpio is capable of.
And the specs are really definitely a bigger step up than the jump of PS4 Pro from the regular PS4.
A lot of changes were made for Scorpio- particularly the SOC (called the Scorpio engine) that will be the heart of the mid-generation Xbox One upgrade, a 12 GB shared VRAM with 8GB available for games (compared to 8GB, 5GB for games in the Xbox [...]
