Gamer Culture

Gamers have a unique and diverse culture within our society.  We tend to do things a little differently, and that's why we have this corner Cinelinx set aside specifically for them.  This section will feature articles dealing specifically with that culture and the integration of video games into every day life.

Hands-On With Trials Rising and For Honor: Marching Fire


A perennial contender for E3 Showcase of the Year is Ubisoft, mainly for their lineup of quality games. Aside from only one moment of “dead air”, Ubisoft accomplished what they set out to do: get us excited and ready to buy their big name titles.
