“Players now take 10% less damage in PvP.” “Players now deal 10% more damage in PvP.” “Players now act like they take 10% less damage in PvP, but they really don’t. They’re just kidding around.” You haven’t failed me yet, annual fake World of Warcraft patch notes.

This War of Mine DLC Charity Campaign Has Done a Lot of Good

Indie game This War of Mine's DLC charity campaign, launched last month to benefit the War Child organization, has so far supported more than 350 Syrian children refugees, developer 11 Bit Studios announced on Wednesday.

Bungie's April Fools' Day gag is a silly Destiny dance party

Bungie didn't go all out for April Fools' Day this year, but it did give Destiny players a little something to amuse themselves with today: a Guardian dance party on Bungie.net. Destiny players who logged in to the site and checked out the Legend tab are treated to an endless dancing-with-yourself routine from their Guardian(s) alongside some color-cycling fun.

Neverwinter's Xbox One tweaks are smart, but performance takes a hit

I was a big fan of Neverwinter when it launched in 2013, thanks to its refreshingly fast pace and clever, comparatively unobtrusive free-to-play model.
