Xbox One: Battlefield 1 Review

20161018235001

DICE has been changing the first person shooter genre for over a decade with the Battlefield franchise. It went from being a relatively unknown series to one of gaming’s most valuable properties and gone from a World War II shooter to something with modern-day trappings, to even a cops vs. robbers motif.

Xbox One Preview: Battlefield One Beta

Battlefield One beta 0

For fans of the first person shooter genre, I don’t have to give the history of the Battlefield franchise.

Halo-Wars-2-trailer-battle

There is only one event every year that geeks hold their breath the entire year round waiting for. And that’s Comic Con. Okay, and maybe Blizzcon, Penny Arcade Expo, Game Developers conference, and more. I’m sorry, did I say one event a year?

Xbox One Review: Need for Speed

Need for Speed Review

Way back in 2003, EA reinvigorated the Need for Speed series and turned it into one of its biggest yearly franchises with the release of Need for Speed Underground.
