Battlefield V revealed, morons unite

May 24, 2018

EA have officially announced Battlefield V, in a video packed with pleasant surprises. As a female woman was used in the imagery, however, the internet nigh-on exploded with the stench of misogynistic morons farting out their thoughts en masse. If you’ve somehow missed the fuss, you can guess the kinds of comments pretty easily. Usually wrapped up in the...

VR’s successes and stumbles, via Farpoint

VR’s successes and stumbles, via Farpoint
