NM Impressions: Crash Force

(Editor’s Note: Copy provided by publisher) Crash Force is a great looking game with a lot of problems, which is fine since the game is in early access and that is exactly what it is good for. I’ve been playing the game for the better part of the last two weeks, and while the foundation […]

[Video] Does the World Need Another Shooter? Raiders of the Broken Planet Says Yes

DUST 514 Will Shut Down In May

CCP Games has announced that their console shooter DUST 514 will be shutting down later this year. Initially launched on the Playstation 3 in 2013, DUST never really caught on with either the Eve Online community or the console community.
