Shaq Fu 2 Is Coming, A Sequel To An Abysmal Game

It was by 1994 that we grew familiar with 2D fighting games: a one vs. one matchup where characters would yell “Hadouken” or “GET OVER HERE!” and beat the living tar out of each other.

Megalodon Shark Found in Battlefield 4 DLC

Before the launch of Battlefield 4 DICE and EA coined the term “Levolution.” The made-up word encompassed all of the interactive map elements that promised to make Battlefield 4 a dynamic and realistic multiplayer combat experience.

Titanfall Is About To Get A Little Prettier On The PC

Titanfall is not an ugly game. It’s not exactly a pretty game either. Its use of the decade old Source engine ensures that it sits somewhere in the middle instead as a strong aesthetic makes up for its lack of cutting edge effects. Understandably, PC gamers demand more from their games though and Nvidia is helping to deliver that. Nvidia …

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike Has Weaponized Hovercraft

Hovercraft are inherently silly. It’s a boat that’s trying to be a land vehicle. They aren’t intimidating at all, but you can try to make them fearsome in the latest DLC for Battlefield 4.

Titanfall Gets The Inevitable Live-Action Ad

Titanfall is hardly realistic. The very concept is absurd really. A bunch of robot pilots duke it out on a small map and then call down giant mechs to do further battle until one team has to evacuate. It’s like the plot of an 80s cartoon, but it’s strangely compelling. It may be compelling, but it’s still an 80s cartoon. …

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Is In On The Joke

Ever since its reveal, it was pretty obvious that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was a parody of sorts.
