Weekend Whammy: EA Being Stupid, Devil May Cry Demo & More

This week I put out the review for Spinnortality, a cool little management game where you run a corporation.

Star Wars: Battlefront To Have Microtransactions?

Eurogamer recently held a short and interesting interview with a member of DICE regarding their forthcoming Star Wars: Battlefront title. The interview wasn’t interesting because of how much information was revealed, though, but rather because of how evasive and completely generic it was. After fending off a question […]
