Xbox One Review: Hawken

  Hawken is an online only first person shooter that places players in the cockpit of their very own mech for competitive and cooperative multiplayer.

Review: Destiny: The Taken King

Destiny The Taken King Review

Few people would say that Destiny was a bad game when it was released in 2014, but it didn’t quite live up to its potential. The story didn’t make any sense, and the grinding for light and better gear just became too time-consuming after Level 20. But the shooting mechanics were a rock solid extension of everything Bungie learned from …
