    Fast, Fun, And Fresh

    A lot of people have tried to complain and whine about how "Titanfall is just like COD" and blah, blah, blah. I played COD and didn't care for it. But Titanfall is tons of fun. The game isn't as revolutionary as it's be... Read Full Review

    Defiance

    Defiance is an exciting, fast paced shooter in an MMO world that is wholly fascinating.

    I have to admit that I am a tad bias. Defiance just so happens to take place in my own backyard, the San Francisco Bay Area. However, that could have also led to disappointment. Yet, despite some setbacks, Defiance is a ... Read Full Review

    BioWare elevates MMO's to a new lvl by creating immersive, fully produced stories that feel like they matter.

    A highly underrated game that carries the best of it's creative team into a strange and fantastic world.
