It’s the End of Titan Quest as We Know It!

Nov 18, 2017

 When Iron Lore and THQ released Titan Quest way back in 2006 we don’t think anyone expected it to get an aniversary edition released in 2016 under a different publisher that has assimilated the THQ name into it’s own. Even less expected is the addition of a new expansion more than ten years after the original release but Pieces Interactive and...

We need a cure for Destinyitis

We need a cure for Destinyitis

Nov 9, 2017

Confession time; I’m not a big fan of Destiny (the game, not the abstract concept of predetermined events). I mean, it’s okay, but the fact that so many people are borderline obsessed with it baffles me. If you love it – and, statistically, you probably do – I’m cool with that.
