Still have an opportunity to try and get in

The Division 2 Private Beta Kicks Off Tomorrow

By the end of March, we will not be in short supply of "loot shooters." Destiny 2 has seen a resurgence thanks to the "Forsaken" expansion and the steady roll-out of content ever since, Bioware's Anthem drops in just a couple weeks, and Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is just a month away from hitting the scene. If the latter's more "realistic" take on the genre (i.e., you're not shooting lasers or flying around in mech suits), and want to check it out before March 15, then you've got a little bit of time to try and get into the Private Beta that starts tomorrow.

Nindies Showcase Recap

Yesterday, Nintendo held one of their "Nindies Showcases" to highlight some of the titles that will be headed to the Switch over the next few months.

Strangely Explored Lands...

Halo Wars 2 Co-Op Review

Early on in Halo Wars 2, I kept getting the feeling that I had lived this all before in an almost dream-like way. I played through campaign mission after mission, trying to shake the feeling and find my 'Ah-ha!' moment that would set the game apart, letting me tell my friends and associates of the special moments I wanted to share with...

Orbit Into the Satellite Reign Co-Op Beta Right Now

Here is a quick tip for anyone out there who fears we might have tumbled into a dystopian Cyberpunk future while everybody was asleep: is any part of your attire glowing? If you answered "no" to this question, congratulations! The world might still frighten the pants off of you, but at least you aren't destined for a life of horrible drudgery in the Conception Machine. If "yes," then you'd better start brushing up on your E-Brain Hacking skills; they'll come in handy! Oh, and warn your friends to watch out for the Synapse Cops.

But it never quite made it to some of the stretch goals, the biggest of which was a million dollar goal for online co-op.
