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…

Combined Arms Mode for Battlefield V Finally Arriving Next Month

Battlefield V launched back in November 2018 with only a couple of the gameplay modes that were initially discussed/revealed with the latest entry in the Battlefield franchise. One of the modes that was missing was the cooperative "Combined Arms," which would let you team up with three friends to complete a mission. DICE finally announced a few days ago that that mode will finally be coming to the game as part of the "Lightning Strikes" content sometime next month.

Because it's 1/15, like, you know, element 115? Listen, pull up a chair and allow me to tell you some lore...

Celebrate January 15 with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Zombies Mode

On Saturday, Treyarch took to Reddit to reveal its plans to celebrate the special day that is January 15 (1/15 -> element 115 the thing what made all dem zambies). Starting right about now, you can earn double character XP, double weapon XP, and double Nebulium Plasma (used to make helpful one-time use elixirs) in the Zombies mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. But that's not all.

Orcs Must Die! Unchained Shutting Down In April

Last week, Robot Entertainment announced that their free-to-play third-person action/tower defense-ish game, Orcs Must Die! Unchained, will be coming to an end this April. Sadly, it sounds like this attempt to shift the popular franchise to the "games as a service" model didn't pan out for the Texas-based developer.

Open Demo for Anthem Drops Next Month

CES 2019 is officially underway and amidst all the tech announcements of newer TVs, new fridges with TVs, and (I'm guessing here) washer/dryers with TVs, there's a bit of gaming news, too. BioWare's third-person RPG shooter, Anthem, is coming out at the end of February, but before that you'll be able to check it out yourself during an "Open Demo" period at the beginning of February.

Retro FPS DUSK Will Be Getting Co-Op In 2019

If you miss the days of QuakeQuake II, and DOOM (1993) and wish someone would put out a modern version of those classics, then you may be interested in a little title called DUSK. This passion project draws a lot of inspiration from those famous PC FPS games of the early to mid 90s, and in a recent post, one of the developers stated that they have some additional features planned for the title this year, including a console release and co-op.
