Polygon has reported that Bluehole, the developer behind PUBG, has released a press release that would suggest that the PUBG Corp., a subsidiary of Bluehole, and Bluehole themselves feel slighted by Epic Games, due to the release of their battle royale mode in Fortnite.

I purchased Valiant Hearts: The Great War knowing only that it had a compelling story, with reviewers specifically emphasizing the quality of the ending. That declaration was enough to pique my interest, so I dove in otherwise completely blind, ready for a good time. 

Star Wars: Battlefront is a game that has been in a weird spot on my backlog. I initially purchased it on release for the PS4, but never quite played it enough to feel like I had given it a fair shot. This month, I finally got around to playing more of it, albeit after an extensive adventure and on a new system.

I remember my first time booting up Final Fantasy XI back in 2006, I saw a Summoner almost immediately after I left the city of San D’oria and thought they were the coolest thing. They had big majestic summons, and a wide variety of them at that.

The HCT Americas Summer Playoffs ended this past weekend, packed full of exciting games and new names making the top eight. Today I’ll take a look at the lineup of all 70 players in the tournament.

The deck distribution by popularity:

  1. Jade Druid - 69

  2. Kazakus Priest - 58

Even though Blizzard was against ever having the bloody-free-for-all, they gave in to their fans’ cries for the simple days of taking down your enemies without the need of objectives and released deathmatch into the Overwatch Arcade on August 29th.

Street Fighter V’s second go around of new characters has for the most part been a series of strong additions to the roster, adding a few interesting play styles into the mix (Ed, Kolin) while also adding legacy characters from other Capcom titles that have seen a lot of interest in competitive play (Abigail).

Hearthstone has made its name as a wildly successful online TCG for a variety of reasons. I think one of the most important is the flavor and character represented in each of the game’s classes. For those that don’t know, Hearthstone’s decks are based on nine classes from the Warcraft franchise, with each class represented by a fully voiced and animated hero.

In my last article, I shared my thoughts on some basic PvP strategies and how to survive the 4v4 Ranked Feast mode.
