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…

Not to be confused with the Goat Simulator DLC for PAYDAY 2

PAYDAY DLC for Goat Simulator Makes Its Way to Xbox Consoles

At the time, this was a PC exclusive DLC pack that added a camel, a flamingo, a dolphin, and four new goats to the roster of playable animals in the game, as well as some vaguely PAYDAY 2 themed things. That DLC is now availab...

Next Battleborn Update Will Unlock All 25 Core Characters for Free

The exact future for Battleborn may be up-in-the-air, but with the next update, Gearbox and 2K are hoping to attract a few more players to the title. The big ticket item with this update is that all 25 characters in the original roster, i.e., none of the new ones that have been added over the past six months, will be unlocked for free simply by completing the Prologue.

The sequel nobody saw coming

Knack 2 is in the Works

While Sony had a fair number of surprises for its fans at the PlayStation Experience this past weekend, including the reveal of The Last of Us: Part 2 and Windjammers making its way digitally to PSN, the one game that was perhaps the biggest surprise was Knack 2. While the original has its appeal and drawbacks, it sounds like Japan Studio has heard much of the criticism leveled at the game and put that to work to make the sequel better.

New Rocket League Map and Steam Workshop Support Arrive Tomorrow

Since it's debut last July, Rocket League has risen to be one of the most popular multiplayer games out there. We're just happy that you can play against some co-op bots with buddies. A new sci-fi themed arena, "Starbase ARC," gets added to the title, but perhaps best of all, PC players will be able to share their own custom maps with folks via Steam Workshop.

Spice Up Your Holidays With the Festive Seasoning DLC for Overcooked

It's been rather incredible to see how much love Overcooked - a local co-op only title - has been getting these past few months. Entirely deserved, too, from my perspective. To celebrate the holidays, those fine gentlemen at Ghost Town Games are releasing an appropriately themed DLC pack for free.
