Free-to-play games are a dime a dozen. The majority of these games come from three different genres, FPS, MOBA and MMO. A well done freemium game works for everyone involved.

I have high hopes for Life is Strange

I have high hopes for Life is Strange. This is primarily because I believe in Dontnod. The developer takes chances in the hopes of providing video game experiences with unique narratives. Sure, didn’t exactly pan out. The idea was sound, and the prospect of tampering with peoples’ memories was promising. It opened a moral can more »

Bungie confirmed on its weekly blog update that Destiny Beta characters will not transfer over to the final release.
