Oh, what a time when we were inundated with World War II games, and we clamored for modern military shooters.

Battlefield 1 is a stark…

What DICE Learned From the Battlefield 1 Beta

Guns still kill people, and bayonets still hurt, for starters. Aside from that, a whole host of Battlefield 1 balance changes to vehicles, such as how durable and how much damage the light tanks can do, and the survivability of horses will be tweaked, along with how tickets are earned in Conquest mode, and the…

Battlefront to Bring Back Bots

Star Wars Battlefront was a disappointment in a lot of gamer’s minds, especially at launch. It was mostly carried by its name while not containing enough substance. To be fair it did get more content...for a price, but it had nothing on the older Battlefront games. Well today DICE announced that they will be bringing…

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

The sequel to one of the breakout surprises of 2008, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst moves away from the level-based City of the first game to the open-world City of Glass. Further changes to the timeline, characters, and more make Catalyst more of a reboot than a prequel proper. Does Mirror’s Edge Catalyst do enough to soar…

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

Released back in 2008, the original Mirror’s Edge holds a special place in the hearts of many for attempting the then-unthinkable: a first-person parkour game. Since then, Dying Light, Outlast, and VR-exclusive Wildlands, among others, have all offered their own take on the genre, each with their own variations therein. DICE has undergone substantial changes…
