Rocket Arena – Setup for Failure

EA is to blame for the recent launch of Rocket Arena, which is ashame, because if handled properly, they would have another hit on their hands.

Fall Guys – The Game Show of Battle Royale

Fall Guys is the new Battle Royale on the block…but with a twist.  Instead of being your typical shooter in which you are eliminating other players using traditional or non-traditional weapons, here you are partaking in what could be best described as a game show.  There are obstacle courses, team games, survival maps, and even…
