This is a terrific show, and it's just getting better in its second (totally insane) season.
Far from jumping the shark, Season 2 of 'Mr Robot' is even better than the first.

Here's some good news for tabletop gamers---and bad news for your wallets. All five of these look pretty sweet, and each is very different from the rest.
Here are five Kickstarter tabletop games deserve a closer look.

So Star Citizen looks absolutely fabulous. It still may end up being a pile of garbage, but this footage certainly promises an incredible game with incredibly deep mechanics and possibilities.
New 'Star Citizen' gameplay footage looks like everything we've been promised and more.

Here's my review of Fear the Walking Dead's midseason premiere. It's an...odd show.
'Fear The Walking Dead' returns to an episode devoted entirely to Nick's journey through the desert.

"In other words, Respawn absolutely heard fans say “we want more content” but instead of listening to this, the developers themselves felt that the game was too chaotic and exhausting. This is in spite of fans really liking how the game actually played. Fans simply wanted more stuff to do, but Respawn essentially ignored this and came up with problems that didn’t exist, and then fixed those."
'Titanfall 2' isn't the game fans were asking for.

This would be nice but I'll believe it when I see it.
Could matchmaking be coming to Destiny's popular end-game raids?

A slimmer, not all that attractive, PS4 for the holidays? Looks like it...
The PS4 Slim appears to be the real deal, if Eurogamer is to be believed.

I certainly didn't hate the Tech Test of Titanfall 2 this weekend, but I also didn't love it. Lots of features missing, and hopefully Respawn listens closely to its fans here. I'm not sure how much they can fix by October, but pushing back to November also wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.
Titanfall 2 has improved over the original in some ways, but it's gotten a lot worse in others.
