The Stream Team: Fighting the Empire on Iokath in SWTOR

The audience has spoken! In a slightly surprising decision, the viewers voted for Massively OP’s Larry and MJ to fight with the Republic against the Empire on Iokath in SWTOR.

The Soapbox: I have a bad feeling about Anthem

As I watched Nick Tarabay stand on stage hype up the audience in the Main Theater for PAX West 2018, I thought it was pretty cool that Anthem was able to get find a celebrity to introduce the game.

Aww, Sea of Thieves’ latest update patches out the inadvertent spyglass dongs

It was a smidge delayed, and then down again, but it’ll happen eventually: Sea of Thieves is due back up with its 1.2.5 patch. It’s not really that exciting a patch, I’m gonna be honest, as it focuses on quality-of-life improvements to the barrel system, allows players to feed caged pigs (again), vows to keep doubloons around after events end, and...
