LOW Constantly hitting dead ends as I tried to get from point A to point B.

WTF Garrett is a master thief who can climb walls and towers, but he can't jump over a three foot pressure plate?

Titanfall Beta Preview

Titan fell

My first and only experience with multiplayer-only online shooters was a few years back when I reviewed Battlefield 2142, a game that features the exact same premise and publisher as Titanfall. Judging it against its most similar competition, Titanfall is a far better game than B:2142, but leaving it there would be to damn the game with faint praise.

Is There Really a Curse?

MAX: The Curse of the Brotherhood Review Screenshot

HIGH Rocketing through the air over a chasm before miraculously drawing a vine to save myself from certain death.

WTF I hated that monster until I was killing him - where are these tears coming from?
