This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Launch: Release Date, Review, Gameplay Videos, And Everything You Need To Know

Star Wars Battlefront II is the latest Star Wars game from EA and DICE, and this time around, the developers have made some major changes to the series. Unlike 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront, all of Battlefront II’s DLC characters and maps will be given away for free to all players, but the game introduces microtransactions in the form of loot crates to compensate for that. It also features a full single-player campaign that’s set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens and puts players in ...

Etrian Odyssey 5: Beyond The Myth Review

When a game series runs as long as Etrian Odyssey has, you usually start to see some sweeping changes and reinventions to its formula. But Etrian Odyssey has never really been about keeping with the latest gaming trends–after all, its core conceit of exploring a 3D labyrinth that you must carefully map out harkens back to the very earliest days of PC role-playing games. Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth continues in that tradition: It offers a big, challenging old-school-style adventure that has been carefully iterated on and improved over ...

Sonic Forces Review

<\/iframe>”,”480″:” At first, Sonic Forces’ emphasis on story seems like a refreshing shift from the predominantly simple plot lines of recent games in the series. However, even though the heightened stakes provide an interesting power shift, they never culminate into anything interesting or impactful. It’s only in Sonic Forces’ levity where it manages to be somewhat entertaining, turning to puns or brief comedic situations to elicit a snicker, but all too infrequently. Throughout your adventure, you’ll switch back and forth between playing as either Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic, or your ...

The Toyota Prius Prime plug-in is the best hybrid the automaker sells. Equip a Prius Prime the same way as the popular regular Prius hybrid, and the difference is less than $ 1,000. With the Prius Prime, even if you drive 20-25 miles to work and back daily, you’ll be running exclusively on cheap electricity during the work week. Because it’s a Toyota, it comes standard with an excellent safety suite called TSS-P. Even as a compact car, the Prius Prime is reasonably comfortable for four adults. And it was adequately ...

Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti Review Roundup: Neatly Splitting the 1070 and 1080

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. When Nvidia launched the GTX 1070 and 1080 back in May 2016, it decisively re-established itself as the upper-midrange market, while extending its lead at the top of the graphics stack. Save for the launch of the new 1080 Ti and a modest bump to the GTX 1080’s RAM clocks earlier this year, that’s where the market stayed until August, when AMD’s Vega 56 took a modest lead over the 1070 and Vega 64 landed ...

Fresh questions about Trump administration's review of AT&T-Time Warner deal

“A lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me.” That was President Trump on Friday, stepping up his criticism of the DOJ by explicitly saying he wants investigations of his political rivals. Trump is not shy about his enemies list. It includes Hillary Clinton and several major news outlets, including CNN. That’s why there are whispers in political and media circles that the president may be trying to interfere with AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner, especially now that the DOJ is reportedly considering a lawsuit to block ...
