Questions Arise About The Legitimacy of Green Man Gaming Battlefront Keys

Posted on November 16, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Popular game deals sub-reddit /r/GameDeals has banned the posting of deals from well known discount PC games retailer Green Man Gaming after some users have question the legitimacy of some of the keys available through the website.

This has lead some to wonder if GMG is receiving their keys not from EA directly but from 3rd party retailers.Read More

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void Review

StarCraft’s Legacy Left No Void.

After seventeen and a half years, StarCraft has certainly been with some of us for a long time. A good chunk of us may have enjoyed passing around a single copy and “Spawning” others on a LAN to play multiplayer with in our early gaming years. Heck, even from a gameplay standpoint its expansion “Brood War” is a shining pinnacle of the genre as a whole, loved and embraced by many.
