Star Wars Battlefront 2In the fall of 2015, just in time for a new era in Star Wars movies, EA Games released Star Wars Battlefront. It had been a long time coming, but the wait was worth it. This was a solid game, and one that made great use of the next-gen computing power of our current gaming systems. And as good as that game was, this year’s Battlefront II looks to be even better.

Morrowind

For many die-hard fans of The Elder Scrolls saga, Vvardenfell holds a special place in their heart.   These are the gamers who fell in love with the series when Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls III released back in 2002, where Morrowind was first introduced.  I am so excited to explore new areas of Tamriel and have fantastic adventures in The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind!  In the game, players will explore the larger area of Morrowind, while helping protect the area from a powerful Daedric threat.

Injustice 2

by Senior Social Media Specialist Senior Social Media Specialist ‎03-28-2017 04:23 PM - edited ‎03-28-2017 04:38 PM (1,422 Views)


Injustice 2It was in the fall of 2013 when Superman, with the help of the creative team at NetherRealm Studios, took control of all world governments and established his Regime. Some heroes, and even a few villains who like a one-world dictator, sided with him to help police the world. As a gamer and a comic book fan, it was exciting to see some of my favorite DC characters at their best and worst.

Grand Theft Auto VThe world was forever changed on 9/17/2013 when Grand Theft Auto V was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.  The main campaign is only as unbelievable as the masterful Grand Theft Auto Online experience that has continued to host events to this day. 

 

I’ve played the entire campaign and jumped into the online experience the day it was released to the public.  In my 20+ years of gaming few games have captivated an audience with its sheer size and incredible detail like the Grand Theft Auto series.

Andromeda Teaser

 

Mass Effect is a franchise I’ve been a fan of ever since playing the first installment on Xbox 360 when it premiered in 2007. I can’t fathom how many hours I’ve spent over the years with my Vanguard Shepard charging and shot-gunning enemies, getting to know complex characters, and multiple replays to see how the stories change. With Andromeda fast approaching on PC, Xbox One, and premiering as the first Mass Effect title on the PS4, I can’t wait for more people than ever to have a chance to discover this fantastic franchise that I love.

Battlefield 1

by Retired: Senior Social Media Specialist on ‎09-01-2016 02:23 PM - last edited on ‎09-01-2016 02:59 PM by Administrator Administrator (440 Views)

Battlefield 1With a trailer that has yielded more ‘likes’ on YouTube than any other trailer before it, the excitement around Battlefield 1 couldn’t be more apparent. When watching the trailer for the first time, I immediately recognized the weaponry from World War I and admittedly, I was quick to find out that automated weapons were utilized well before I originally thought; a common misconception, actually. It’s obvious that Battlefield 1 will be not only a fantastic gaming experience, but a deeply rooted history lesson.
