    Seeing this made my day. I'm expecting this to be as great as all Paul Ryckert content is.

    While I agree with some of your criticisms, Halo: CE is still one of the greatest games of all time. Most of the game still 100% holds up, and for its time, it was ridiculously impressive. The grap...

    MCC, I guess? I was apparently one of few who bought that game for both the multiplayer and campaigns. The single-player always worked, so I just played the campaigns for a while and came back to the ...

    That was the most exciting WWC game I've ever seen. The first half was back-and-forth, with the teams basically trading counterattacks. Germany ran out of steam shortly after the missed PK, and had ...

    I was raised Christian (Baptist). I wouldn't call myself "practicing" anymore in the traditional sense, but I still have some faith. I often take issue with organized religion, especially when polit...

    That first half was some great soccer. I said I'd be happy with 0-0 at half, and I pretty much am, but we have got to finish. Same old story. We've had about five legitimate chances to score. Morg...

    A few hours from USA/Germany now. Obviously the game of the tourney, and perhaps the de facto final as the winner is probably a heavy favorite to win it all. I'm curious to see what Ellis does with...

    @believer258: Forza 5 is 1080p/60 FPS. The MCC is as well (as is just about every rerelease, like DSII: SotFS). Forza 6 will be, and Halo 5 is supposed to be. FIFA 14 & 15, Wolfenstein: TNO, Proje...

    Great performance by the U.S. They looked the part today. The scoreline isn't that impressive, but the game wasn't really close. The U.S. was in complete control. Johnston gets the game ball. She...
