The Paragon v27 patch arrived this evening and it’s the first patch in a long time that’s included some major changes to the core of the game. This afternoon was interesting once the patch arrived, what with the new draft system where characters are selected (and locked out) in turn. It’s not been a problem…Details

Mike, Mary, Justin, and Jake discuss Cabin in the Woods and Until Dawn, two titles that pick apart horror in their respective media.
If you’re a horror enthusiast–whether it be horror movies or video games–chances are you’ve heard about Cabin in the Woods. It’s known for deconstructing horror tropes and archetypes, and challenged us, as viewers, to see the horror genre differently.

It isn’t as introspective as Cabin in the Woods, but shares a lot of the same self-aware tropes. As a sort of special edition episode, we decided to compare, contrast, and wax poetic about both titles.Details

In the alternate history of Homefront: The Revolution, America is on its knees, utterly dominated by a foreign invader–its landmarks destroyed, its resources pillaged, its people subjugated. This unsettling future makes for an evocative, ambitious premise, but the resulting shooter can’t quite live up to that potential, in part because it suffers from a larger than average number of mild but persistent technical issues. In the interest of providing a fair and thorough review, we’ve decided to hold our final verdict until I’ve had more time to test the game on Xbox One and PC, as I spent the majority of my time playing on PS4.Details
During Take Two’s earnings report today, the Rockstar Games parent company was asked if it had any interest in remastering the Grand Theft Auto titles that originally released on PS2.

Nintendo has again stressed that the NX is not to be thought of as a system that will simply replace the Wii U, even if its release will negatively impact sales of that system.

The bulk of the Assassin’s Creed movie takes place in modern day, the film’s executive producer has confirmed. Pat Crowley told IGN that the film is set 65 percent in the present and 35 percent in 15th century Spain, a ratio that doesn’t quite match up with the games.Details
