Jason Love - Lead Editor

My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

Three new operators and a new map

Next Rainbow 6 Siege DLC is Around the Corner

In keeping with the road map they laid out earlier this year, the first piece of new DLC (Operation Blood Orchid) since February will be dropping for Rainbow 6 Siege soon. For all you Terrorist Hunt fans out there (and pretty much everyone else, too), two new Operators from the Hong Kong Special Duties Unit (S.D.U.) along with an Operator from Poland's GROM will be available to play along with a new map, a creepy abandoned amusement park.

Some cool ideas here

Co-Op Details Provided for Absolver

We're a little over a week away from the start of the big fall release season, and one of the co-op titles you can enjoy starting on August 29 is Absolver, an "online multiplayer combat game" where players can create their own combat style. Though it's core is a 1v1 fighting game, there are some interesting co-op features, which the devs have recently talked about in some greater detail on the PlayStation Blog.
