    Dice Better Than Any Dice You’ve Ever Owned Pass 10X Their Kickstarter Funding Goal In One Week

    Do you ever find yourself wondering how good your dice are? Because I do. Are they really random? Or do slight imperfections in their design favor one number over another? It’s impossible to know. Unless you have precision machined dice. And while you’re precision-machining some dice, why not make them in a variety of rare and exotic metals? Those are the questions Tuscon… Read More

  • Dice Says PC Gaming Isn't Dead, Battlefield 3 Will Fix The FPS Experience

    PC gamers—those who aren’t destroying the universe, at least—have at least one genuine PC game to look forward to this year, and that’s Battlefield 3. All of us here are pretty excited about, and we’re generally tough graders.

  • Battlefield 3 DLC Maps Confirmed: Wake Island Returns

    Battlefield 3 doesn’t even have a release date yet, but EA has already started talking about DLC. Sigh. It’s a bit disappointing: so many of us here (well, me, Matt, and Devin) are genuinely looking forward to the game, and we’re already being teased with offers of almighty DLC. It’s so unsettling.

  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Phu Bai Valley Trailer

    EA just released a brand new trailer of their upcoming DLC for Bad Company 2. Looks sweet if you ask me and it will set you back 1200 MS. Onslaught, the last (and only) DLC for Bad Company 2 was not satisfactory and I do hope that this new download is not just a bunch of weapons and maps. The Multiplayer Expansion Pack will be available this winter. Read More

  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2 sells many copies (plus bonus rant!)

    God almighty do I have a bone to pick with Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which I bought on release day like a mark. The game is doing quite well for EA, having already sold 2.3 million units (and projected to sell 4 million by the end of the year). So that’s ahead of expectations—it’s a hit, have a party. The thing that annoys me (and Matt, for that matter) is the… Read More

  • Battlefield 1943 hitting Xbox, PS3 next week, PC in September

    EA has finally dated Battlefield 1943 and it’s coming to the Xbox 360 Live Marketplace on July 8th with a PlayStation Network launch the following day. The critically acclaimed WWII title will cost $15 on PSN or 1200 MS Points and will only take up 560MB of space. A 24-player online battle royale? Count me in. PC gamers will have to wait until September, though. Hit the jump for the… Read More
