Battlefield 1 trailer revealed with WWI-style madness

Battlefield 1 trailer revealed with WWI-style madness

This morning the folks behind the Battlefield series have brought a trailer for what might be their most ambitious project yet. This is Battlefield 1, so called - sort of - because it takes place during World War 1. This isn't the same WWI you've been taught about in school, however, it's a sort of alternate dimension where oddities can happen. This is what they call the "Dawn of All-Out War". We're looking... a bit... forward to it.

I'm the kind of guy that's always on the lookout for a good deal. This is especially true with games, as I've come to accept the fact that many of my games will never get played until completion.

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta opens today at 10AM PST

Thursday the 8th of October, 2015, the Star Wars Battlefront BETA began opening its doors to the public. This open invitation will be brought to users on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, including several modes of play and environments. This BETA test will be sent out for two reasons. The first is to test the servers - any game that's based primarily in an online environment such as this needs time to make certain it'll be able to be handled at scale. The second reason this BETA exists is that the game itself must be tested for flaws by a large number of users - tiny flaws like bonus icons disappearing when you throw a thermal detonator - that's what they'll looking for.

Origin PC CHRONOS Gaming Desktop Review

Origin PC CHRONOS Gaming Desktop Review

While Origin PC's Chronos comes as one of the most compact gaming PC builds in the industry, it still manages to thrill. While you'll see a whole lot more of the big builds like Origin's GENESIS sitting out in the open at gaming shows - or your most affluent gaming friend's basement, Origin's finesse in jamming the best components into the smallest of cases shines in the Chronos. While Origin also offers the "Omega" small-size gaming desktop, it's the slightly lovelier to behold Chronos we're reviewing today.

Titanfall gambles with in-game market

Titanfall gambles with in-game market

This isn’t a bad memory of Diablo III. You’re not going to be trading your items for real cash in a market on Titanfall’s newest update (Update 5). Instead it’s a simple system in which you’re able to sell Burn Cards for credits and spend credits on Burn Card Packs and other oddities. It’s actually kind of neat.
