Nick has been covering video games since 2004, including leadership roles at prominent gaming outlets. He has created numerous websites to feed his insatiable appetite for world domination, of which, is coming along nicely.
Crackdown 3's release is just 9 days away, and to celebrate, we now have the official launch trailer for a game that was originally announced in 2015.

It was 11 years ago today that we opened our doors to the world. A website dedicated to gaming together in a non-competitive way, launching a database to help people find and share the type of games they love. We've come a long way in that time, gaming has changed quite a bit, but we still love teaming up with some pals to take down a boss or conquer a challenge just as much.

Black Friday is upon us, the day where we empty our hard earned wallets onto the internet and into retailers everywhere because...capitalism. You too can join in on the fun this year!

Crackdown is hands down one of the all time best co-op experiences I've ever had. Climbing the tower with a buddy, trying to make the biggest wreckage possible by piling cars, or simply speed running to collect orbs - it bar none set the open world standard for co-op sandbox action. Now it's yours for free on Xbox One or Xbox 360.
Last night we dusted off the arcade machine, pulled out a pocket full of (virtual) quarters and checked out the latest nostalgia release from Capcom.
