If you are playing Fallen Earth and you are not in a clan, you are doing it wrong. The importance of clan membership cannot be overstated. There are simply too many benefits to not find one that suits you. There is safety in numbers if you are a PvPer. It's nice to team up on that nasty boss with...

You can understand, for upcoming Kaos Studios-developed Homefront, how it might be hard to live up to the '80s film, hinged on fears of nuclear war, Red Dawn. But it's a similar premise (and the same writer!) that holds together the trailer you see above, peppered with "Resist!" signs and talk of an...

We saw the ones for Army of Two earlier in the week, and those seemed rather creative considering the genre and publisher. While that game has been criticized harshly in the games press and populace, Frontlines has been given just a bit more faith in the hope that it might do things a bit differentl...
