Spoiler Warning:
Fallout 4

Is Fallout 4 the greatest videogame ever made? No. No it is not.

 

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round

I'm not surprised a fighting game has an absurd story. I just can't figure out why they bothered with the story at all.

 

Grand Theft Railroad

Batman: Arkham Origins

A breakdown of how this game faltered when the franchise was given to a different studio.

 

Joker's Last Laugh

This is why shopping for graphics cards is so stupid and miserable.

 

Blistering Stupidity of Fallout 3

Spoiler Warning:
Mass Effect
