007 Producers: Idris Elba Would Make a Great James Bond

Whenever “the next James Bond” comes up in conversation, Idris Elba’s name is sure to follow. The rumor that the Thor and Luther actor could succeed Daniel Craig as 007 one day has been going around for years. But just how likely is it?

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Review | Hardcore Gamer

Borderlands remains one of the best new IPs of the previous generation. Its sense of humor, sharp mechanics and billions of different guns helped the series stand out from the competition.

With a focus on main antagonist Handsome Jack, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection brings together his story in one complete package with all content ever released for both games, but is there any reason to return to Pandora for a second-dip? —> Read More

‘Destiny': How to Easily Farm Loot as a Warlock

Destiny’s legacy won’t be its record-breaking sales, its silky-smooth gameplay, or its ambitious – if ultimately underwhelming – MMORPG-styled mechanics.
