You Are Now Officially Allowed To Know When ‘Fallout 4? Reviews Are Going Live

Embargoes are nothing new in the video game world, and though they’ve been the source of a lot of controversy the past few years, I fundamentally understand the need for their existence.

  We’ve still got another month before the annual software slugfest begins in earnest this fall, but already it’s shaping up to be a very significant season for this console generation.

Can ‘Starcraft’ Regain Relevance With ‘Legacy of the Void’?

  This morning, I cashed in my code for the new Prologue missions for Starcraft’s Legacy of the Void expansion.

Ernest Cline’s ‘Armada’ Drowns in Video Game And Sci-Fi Nostalgia

  For a long while now, I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of Armada, a book by Ernest Cline whose breakout novel, Ready Player One, remains one of my favorite sci-fi tales.
