Now the Rage 2 teaser that was released yesterday sucked pretty bad. It made me cringe so hard I had to get up and leave the office for a moment. Unfortunately today’s gameplay reveal isn’t much better. It seems like Rage 2 is trying to be Borderlands now, only they crossed that line that you aren’t supposed to cross. — more
Destiny 2’s second DLC, Warmind, came out today. I had a chance to play the entirety of the campaign and attempt the new horde mode public event, all in under two hours. Two hours..
To say that I’m disappointed with Warmind would be an understatement. — more
Destiny 2’s newest DLC is out tomorrow and um, I guess I’m a bit excited? New content is certainly welcome for this tired bare feeling game, but what we can see here looks pretty lame. A few new weapons, a couple new enemies, a new location, and a new public event. — more
If you haven’t heard already, Frostpunk is a new PC game from 11 bit studios and it’s very good. It’s all over gaming media lately but I just got around to playing it this past weekend. Already it’s kept me up past 2 AM on two occasions so far and if you like city builders like Banished, you need to try it out. — more

Thanks for putting a big load of cringy bullshit in my Twitter feed this morning, Green Man Gaming. The so named video game vendor decided to write an article about the addition of gender neutral pronouns in the new Battletech game and how some fans of the series don’t like it. — more
The Mega Man event for Monster Hunter World is live and I’ve farmed up the cute little armor set for my Palico. I grabbed the weapon too, but I much prefer the little flower paralysis weapon. The armor look is awesome though, so Julia will be sporting this for a while now. — more
So it turns out Intel’s new NUC units, dubbed Hades Canyon, is just a smidge better than a comparable desktop running a GTX 1050 Ti. Not bad for a tiny little box you can mount on a VESA plate. I wouldn’t spend 999$ plus an SSD and RAM for this just to game on, but if you want a super powerful HTPC that can chew through HEVC 4k video, this is your beast. — more
With the epic failure of Lawbreakers, Cliffy B set a new bar for marketing hype vs an actual game. Turns out he’s not content sitting on just that pile of failure, so here’s a trailer for his next game! Radical Heights is billed as a battle royale shooter (as if we don’t have enough of those already) with an 80’s dude-bro theme. — more
Monster Hunter World’s spring event, the Spring Blossom Fest, is now in full swing! The team has added all sorts of new stuff including new armor and weapons for both you and your palico, new event quests, and some nifty decorations for the gathering hub area. — more
Not only was this latest episode of Family Guy good, but it has a nice little Leeroy Jenkins skit because it can. Always good to see an old favorite meme come back.
