Video: Star Wars: Battlefront 2 won’t use the token system

I am a massive fan of the first Battlefront game but there certainly were a few issues with it. One thing that many players, including myself, really didn’t like was the hero and vehicle token system. Tokens would appear randomly on the battlefield and you would have to try grab them before anyone else which is no easy task. Once you grab a hero token you would then become a hero of your cho...

The shooting gallery genre unfortunately was long forgotten but Wild Guns has been on nearly eve...

Video: An in-depth look at Dawn of War 3’s multiplayer

For those that played Dawn of War 2 you might remember that it was less about base building, like a traditional RTS, and more about commanding selected squads of troops. Many fans didn’t like the approach and it looks like Relic has been listening to the feedback of it’s community because Dawn of War 3 looks to be a true RTS. At first glance the game might remind you a lot of Star Craf...

Corroded is a arena brawler throwing 6 participants into a shrinking ring in a free-for-all ultimate battle royale fashion, kind of like a mixture between MOBA’s and Smash Bros., with each battle consisting of 7 short rounds.
