Warning: This article contains spoilers for recent episodes of Arrow! Not everyone needs superhuman powers to stay competitive in the DC Universe. For a select few, it’s enough simply to be very smart and very good at martial arts. And if there’s anyone who can give Batman a run for his money in that department, it’s Richard Dragon. With Dragon playing a pivotal role in Arrow: Season 6 lately (in the form of Kirk Acevedo’s Ricardo “The Dragon” Diaz), we figured now would be a good time to break down the character’s comic book history and how a benevolent teacher…

Vermintide 2 (and its predecessor) wears its Left 4 Dead inspiration on its sleeve, but it’s…

With its first Attack on Titan game in 2016, developer Omega Force laid down a rough but promising groundwork for what a game based around the anime phenomenon should be: fast-paced and thrilling aerial battles against gargantuan Titans with a unique control scheme that allows you to zip around effortlessly using Omni-Directional Mobility Gear. Attack on Titan 2 builds upon that foundation with a much-improved interface and some cool new tricks to slice the napes of a Titan in fun and extravagant ways. But the sharp edge of this sequel is dulled a bit by an all too familiar story…
